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.
