Happy Wednesday Fabulous Readers!
Oddly enough I have the pleasure to write to you all on my birthday! So I figured why not tell you guys about a "birthday cake" kind of sweet 5 minute makeover :)
I most often play the role of dark and mysterious because I have dark hair and love dark eye makeup so it's just easy for me to fit into that mode. This is great for night looks when I go to events or meet friends for a night on the town, but sometimes us "night owls" need a little sunshine. Sure there is something intriguing and sexy about a dark and mysterious woman, but I also find that men love "the girl next door", innocently sweet look too. Since it's my birthday, I decided why not have my cake and eat it too?? Today I breakdown how to get the "I'm an angel" makeup look in 5 minutes.
A trend that I loved seeing in 2012 was the natural makeup looks and bold blush and/or lips. Not only did it look romantic but it barely took any time to create! All you need to do is apply your foundation as usually, or sweep a powder all over your face (if you are lucky enough to have flawless skin). Add a touch of white shadow (matte or shimmer) to your inner eye corners and below your eyebrows on the brow-bone. If you want a little more on the eyes (don't do too much!) sweep a light brown (or any neutral shade) on lid and blend. Apply a few coats of lengthening mascara.
Next apply a pinky, sweet blush, you can reference a blog I wrote in the past about that HERE. Be sure to blend just enough to make sure you don't look like a circus clown!
Finally, the most important part of the look is the soft, flushed lips. It can be SO hard to find the right shade of pink...until now! Dior Addict Lip Glow is the most ideal and perfect "color awakening lip balm" to achieve lip perfection. There is no way to over-do the color or not have enough with this innovative product. It is said to enhance your natural lip color with "Color reviver technology" that reacts with your unique chemistry of your lips to reveal the ideal color match for you. It is truly AMAZING! It might be a little pricey but I promise you it is a lot less expensive than all of the failed pink lip colors I have in my makeup collection! This is one trend I know will stay around for a long while...and I am happy with that!
Until next time,
Keep on Being Beautiful You!
