Get the best in beauty for fall
(NC)-Be-jeweled. Be-dazzled. Be bold. Because this fall, the drama queen is back. That's the message that was broadcast loud and clear across all the fall fashion and beauty runways.
The eyes say it all
This season, you can shine and look fine in shimmering golds, or create a truly regal look with rich jewel-tone shades. And of course, soft and subtle smoky eyes in shades of grey are always a classic, timeless choice.
According to Debra Joseph, director of marketing, e-business and communications at Mary Kay Cosmetics Ltd., the glamourous must-have look of the season can easily be made your own by embracing gorgeous colour.
"Keep dark, saturated jewel tones close to the base of the lash. Then make sure you blend the colour well so it fades up toward the brow bone," she advises.
To achieve this look, Joseph suggests Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in navy blue or sweet plum as the perfect shades. And to define the eye and amp up the drama, just add Mary Kay liquid eyeliner.
Joseph also recommends swirling on bronzer after you've applied your foundation to add a little sparkle. Then, to get your glow on, apply highlighting powder to the high points of the face - the tops of the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose.
Luscious lips take centre stage
Now for the perfect pout. The trick for full, glamorous lips is to first line your lips along the outer edge of the lip, fill them with lip liner and follow-up with lipstick and lip gloss for a look that lasts. For a bold look, line your lips with Mary Kay lip liner in red, and then use Mary Kay's creme lipstick in pink melon to fill them in, finishing with Mary Kay Nourishine lip gloss in berry sparkle for megawatt shine.
Glamourous in gold
Nothing says red-carpet ready like sparking gold complexions and "notice-me" lips. Mary Kay's limited edition All Things Glamorous Color Collection allows you to lavish yourself in this luxurious trend.
"It can be difficult to translate the red carpet look into your everyday life," comments Joseph. "That's why Mary Kay's All Things Glamorous Color Collection offers a more subtle way to capture the golden looks of the season. The Mary Kay Mineral Shimmer Powder in canary diamonds can be used sparingly for a light, fresh-faced glow - or all over the face for a more dramatic night-out-on-the-town effect."
And because this look is all about glitz and glamour, Joseph suggests adding a subtle touch of sparkle to the lips with Mary Kay creme lipstick in one of three limited-edition shades: berry luxe, champagne or couture pink.
Whether you choose to glam it up in gold or dazzle with jewels, you'll be ready for your close-up when the holidays arrive.
