Moment With the Makeup Artist
 
As the end of the year approaches many of us are left wondering what to wear to our holiday parties.  Our makeup Artist has put together two color stories to take some of the guess work out of your makeup wardrobe!

First is the “Golden Goddess” look. Using the Blending Brush, or the Blending Fluff Brush sweep the Bronze Mineral Eye Shadow over the entire lid from lashline to eyebrow. Contour in the crease with Grape Mineral Eye Shadow  using the new Angled Shadow Brush. Using the Round Contour Brush apply the Blackberry Mineral Eye Shadow at the lashline on both the upper and lower lids. Follow with a light application of the Blackberry Eyeliner.  The Cinnamon Lip set containing the Cinnamon Lip Pencil and Cinnamon Lipstick are recommended. Top it off with Cinnamon Lipgloss. To complete the look, sweep the Cocoa Shimmer Dust over your shoulders and décolleté with the Large Soft Fan Brush.

The second look is the “Ice Princess.” Again, use the Blending Brush, or the Blending Fluff Brush to sweep the White Highlight Eye Shadow over the entire lid from lashline to eyebrow. Contour in the crease with Slate Blue Eye Shadow using the new Angled Shadow Brush. Using the Round Contour Brush apply the Silverbelle Eye Shadow at the lashline on both the upper and lower lids. Follow with a light application of either the Silver Shimmer or Ash Eyeliner.  The Redbud Lip set containing the Redbud Lip Pencil and Redbud Lipstick are recommended for this look. Top it off with Redbud Lipgloss. To complete the look, sweep the Icy Shimmer Dust over your shoulders and décolleté with the Large Soft Fan Brush.
