On Trend Makeup

The Hot colors for this season are pink and red- but not any old girly, sickly sweet, bubblegum pink, oh no, this is bright, vibrant in your face, "I am woman, hear me roar"- kind of pink! In that same vein are the standup and take notice reds- in all hues from electric, yellow/orange red- to the richest deepest scarlet!
So we here at fortunate Face Minerals have pulled out OUR showstopping colors- and thought we'd give you a little looksee at what can be done off the runway!
 (This post we''ll focus on the reds, and I promise we'll get to some pinks for next time!)

First we color corrected the eye lid, and under eye with Prep Step to neutralize discoloration, and prime the lid for shadow application. we then added a second step- where we smoothed on a bit of a new product (hopefully coming to market soon) named Intesnif-EYE is a cream formula that can work over the prep Step, or bare lid, and is meant to "grab" any shadow applied over it an up the wattage and intensity of that color. (How awesome is that!) we smoothed a tiny bit on lid and all the way up to the brow. Next we used an angled shadow brush to deposit Voracious (a rich deep red) onto the outer third of the eye, the crease, and up onto the brow bone- blending edges up and out. We also smudged it generously down under the lower lash line. Next we applied Rock Star Red to the next third being careful not to bring it in too far toward the inner corner of the eye. Again, blend well. Step 3 is to add Sherbet- a golden orange to the inner corner of the eye and inner lid, gently blend into Rock Star Red. Step 4 we took Blackest and, using a mini fan brush lined upper and lower waterline to create a very defined eye, but preserving the red/orange color. Maybelline Define-A-Lash mascara and curling lashes completed the eye look.

I promised- and now I'm delivering! here are swatches of most of the new colors that I have created in the past few months- I still need to swatch highlight, contour (which isn't even named yet- so that's why) my Color Faux, and all the Tan series foundation colors. That being said- here are the newest colors- and I will try to get photos taken of each on individually and up on my webstore for purchase! Anyone who buys at one of my retail outlets- any and every color I have is available (including these pictured colors & Faux) by Special order- at NO extra cost!
For both arms- I moisturized with  Elizabeth Arden oil free matte moisture lotion, then prepped arm with Prep Step- my eye primer powder (also undereye concealer & red cover)

Heeeeeeeere we go!

From Left to Right
Golden Vanilla, Sahara, Czarina, Divinity, Ravished, & Vegas.
these are all a shimmer or a sparkle- I LOVE me my matte colors- but these were all something I was specifically looking to do.


So, again from left to right
Tropical, Satisfied, Rich Amber, Hot Stuff, Saucy, Poppy, Black Cherry, Wanton, Soft Sand
These are all matte- except for Satisfied- which has chunky gold sparkle. 

These intense colors can look intimidating, but I promise- they are very wearable- a little goes a long way- and just be sure to work color into brush- i intentionally make all my products to pro standards- but that doesn't mean they can't be used day to day- I certainly do! Black Cherry & Wanton- I created yesterday- so I'm going to wear one of those today-I wear hot Stuff, Poppy, & Saucy all the time!

Don't see something you like? I can be hired to custom design an entire makeup wardrobe specifically to you- from foundation and concealer- all the way to blush, bronzers, and eye colors!
