Recreate Rita Ora & Jessica Alba’s Red Carpet Looks with Mary Kay

For ladies of the 2014 MTV Movie Awards it seemed as though there were two vastly different, yet both stunning, popular trends. While half of the ladies showcased their relaxed natural looks, the other half went the dramatic route by getting playful with color. Recreate two of the most gorgeous looks of the night – Rita Ora’s red lip and Jessica Alba’s natural glow – with tips from Mary Kay!

  • Cover the entire lid with Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Silver Satin.
  • Apply Mary Kay Mineral Powder Foundation then lightly sweep Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush across the cheekbones for that just-pinched look.
  • Apply a thin line of Mary Kay Liquid Eyeliner in Black on the upper lash line and thenMary Kay Eyeliner in Black to the waterline. Then coat lashes with Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara in Black for full,             voluminous lashes.
  • Line lips with Mary Kay Lip Liner in Clear and then apply Mary Kay Crème Lipstick in Really Red to attain the perfect red pout.

  • Begin with TimeWise Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation.
  • Sweep Mary Kay Bronzing Powder along the hairline, temples and cheeks for an all-around sun-kissed glow.
  • To attain a shimmery neutral eye, cover lid with Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Rosegold and then lightly sweep this color under the lower lash line as well.
  • Apply Mary Kay Eyeliner in Deep Brown to waterline and then lightly smudge into the lower lash line to create a smoky effect. Then coat lashes with Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara in Brown.
  • Line lips with Mary Kay Lip Liner in Neutral and then fill in lips with Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Pink Cherie. To create dimension and shine, apply Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in  Pink Parfait in the center of the lips to complete the look.

Va Va Va Voom Lashes & More! CoverGirl Bombshell Collection (PLUS Giveaway)

 

Recently I had the chance to review the new CoverGirl Bombshell Collection from Walmart and I’m loving it! CoverGirl nails it every time!

Walmart is a great place to shop for the latest in beauty trends and you can find the Bombshell collection including three amazing products both online and in-stores.

-          COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume by LashBlast™ Mascara

-          COVERGIRL Bombshell Shine Shadow by LashBlast

-          COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Liner

I’ve used a number of the CoverGirl mascaras in the past and the Bombshell Volume is AHHMAZING! It is a 2 step process that gives your eyelashes major volume. If you use just the Step 1 I found that your eyes look how they would normally look with any CoverGirl mascara. But put that Step 2 on and Va Va Va Voom. Lashes for days!

I also absolutely loved the Shine Shadow. I’ve found that many cream shadows tend to smudge easily, create creases in your lids and also fade easily. I was super impressed with these. No smudge, creases or fading at all. You can also layer the colors or add more or less to create whatever look you are going for. My favorite color is the Platinum.

Bombshell Collection Information

Taking cues from the new wave of bombshell beauty, with sexy starlets gracing magazine covers and lingerie-inspired looks on the runways, women are craving beauty tools that will help them stand out and feel sexy. So obsessed with achieving an over-the-top lash look, many women are “cocktailing” multiple mascaras, applying several different formulas to achieve the desired volume and definition.

 

0002270057738_180X180COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume by LashBlastâ„¢ Mascara

Bombshell Volume mascara is now the best-selling CoverGirl product at Walmart*! This entirely new mascara experience, unlike any other two-step offering available, features a first-of-its-kind Boost System that has two brushes and two formulas for MEGA VOLUME and DRAMATIC INTENSITY.  It’s time to take lashes way beyond big.  Shades: Very Black, Black, Black/Brown and Brown

-          Step 1: Extreme volume basecoat that loads on the volume with a big brush and mega-volumizing formula to thicken lashes; the result is volume that’s even and clump-free

-          Step 2: Dark, intensifying topcoat that seals the look with a dark, smooth finish; the proprietary micro-thin lacquer offers maximum impact and lasting power in just one coat

With big sexy Bombshell volume, you need sexy shimmer and shine shadow that lasts all night. Shine Shadows feature reflective pigments that play with light to bring dimension to any look.

-          Available in six buildable, blendable, get-me-noticed shades, each shadow is easy to apply and leaves behind a creamy shimmer finish.

-          Shades: Ice Queen, Platinum Card, Color Me Money, Gold Goddess, Copper Fling and Ooh La Lilac

 

0002270057901_180X180COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Liner

Bombshell eyes can be intense – and your liner should live up to the look.

-          Intensity Liner is a precision felt tip pen with a smooth formula that glides on for a little or a lot of deep, dark sexy.

-          The longwear liner is available in two shades, Pitch Black Passion and Chocolate Kiss – both providing liquid intensity for 24 hours of sexy Bombshell eyes.

P&G Beauty Tips I Learned at #LuckyFABB

photo (84)

 

Recently I attended the Lucky FABB Conference in New York which I was THRILLED about. I attended a P&G Beauty workshop where I learned a ton of great tips from makeup artist Jake Bailey. I also received this great swag which includes Pantene shampoo. Olay Fresh Effects wipes, Smoochies lip balm by CoverGirl and Secret Clinical Strength deodorant.

 

Here are some tips I learned by the fab Jake Bailey:

1. Use fingertips not the whole hand to apply moisturizer.

2. Mix CoverGirl Outlast Foundation with your CC or BB cream on your hand then apply with either a kabuki brush or a sponge like Beauty Blender.

3. You may use CoverGirl Intense Eyeshadow Blast on your nose for highlighting purposes.
