Stop in and see Faces Beautiful whether in Connecticut or On-Line. It’s the place to "feel prettier".

Entering the Scene With a Splash of Green

With bathing suit season right around the corner, a lot of ladies are running back and fourth to the gym on a daily basis. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for this but what’s a tight tush good for if your makeup isn’t on point? Don’t worry, this isn’t one of those blogs on the “No Makeup Look for the Gym” mostly because I’m already judging you if your putting on your face to go do cardio for an hour. Instead, this is to a how-to on how to bring the greens that blossom all around us this time of year, into your makeup routine. Featured in the April 2012 issue of Glamour Magazine (page 243) the look I’ve recreated using different products.
To begin with, when using brighter colors it’s important to prime your eyelids. Instead of purchasing another product, I use my Faces Beautiful Brush-On Liquid Mineral Makeup and sweep some over my eyelids. This works just as well as a primer and blends perfectly with the rest of my face. Next, I chose to use Vincent Longo’s Verite Eye Shadow I dampen my brush slightly with a drop or two of water and apply the pigment to the brush tapping out any fallout. I coat my lid with the green in an arch-like fashion reaching just under my brow bone. I then use my Faces Beautiful Smudge Brush and without wetting it, sweep the Verite Shadow over the bright color you have just applied for a lighter, less intense streak of pigment. Next use a highlighting shadow that reaches up to underneath your eyebrow. I love the snow-like color in the Faces Beautiful Mineral Makeup Signature Shadow Quad in Cougar
Finish the look with a pink lip like the Faces Beautiful Lipstick in Sunberry
These will leave any lips looking kissable and luscious. Enjoy the Spring look and the coming Spring weather!
