One of my favorite things about being a girl is the process of getting ready. It’s an art form, of sorts. We stand in front of the mirror with a blank canvas determined to beautify ourselves. Whether it’s swiping on mascara and lip-gloss and sprinting to the door, or spending half an hour capturing the perfect eye shadow palette; being a girl is fun. Boys just don’t get it.
One thing I’m learning is how to take my look from day to night. On the weekend, I like to feel girly and put on makeup. I’ve partnered with Mary Kay® to try on some fresh new looks. I was thrilled to try their colorful eye shadows and bronzers (I’m a bronzer addict). Test out some bold and pretty lip colors, and really, just have some fun. I grew up with my neighbor selling Mary Kay® products, so it’s always held a special place in my heart. The new products (and packaging) they’ve come out with are classic yet modern.
Here’s a typical weekend daytime look for me. A pretty pink lip with simple eyeshadow. I have to tell you, I never had any of the correct brushes when it came to my eyes, no wonder it always looked wrong on me. Mary Kay® provides all the brushes you need, plus tips on how to actually apply it!
This is a look that Global Makeup Artist, Luis Casco, used to create two stunning looks featured on the latest season of Project Runway. The first one, and my daytime look is Graphic eye.
I have never tried this before, but I was given a blue eyeliner (Mary Kay At PlayTM “Blue My Mind”) . At first I thought, no way. But I used it in the look above and I think it actually made the color of my eyes pop. Using the eye smudger brush and the crease brush really made a difference when applying eye make up. Who knew?
When it’s darker I feel more comfortable turning up the drama. I added some color to my eyes, a bolder lip and I used a deeper bronzer to contour my face a bit. I used Mary Kay® “Emerald Smoke” tutorial to create this look.
My favorite is the cream blush. It goes on effortlessly and blends so easily! This is definitely a product I can just swipe on every day. I also loved the Mary Kay® Translucent Loose Powder to set my makeup.
