I Love A Tangy Orange Lip For The Spring & Summer

Like many makeup junkies I never wear all my makeup from one makeup brand. My vanity is a mess with a variety of makeup tossed around. I really don’t know how I know what to put on each morning because I have so much to choose from. Today I was feeling all Absolute New York makeup especially their waterproof gel liner in orange. I selected mostly their new collections to wear today so I decided to share with you their 3 new items. Don’t sleep on this brand, the colors are highly pigmented and the price is definitely easy on the wallet. From the mouth of a makeup artist & a beauty expert you will be obsessed…don’t say I didn’t warn you!
ABSOLUTE NEW YORK True Palettes Eyeshadow In Elements $5.99
ABSOLUTE NEW YORK Waterproof Gel Lip Liner In Orange $4.99
ABSOLUTE NEW YORK Ultra Slick Lipstick in Magical $5.99

Makeup Monday: Fall Rich Colors Inspired Me On Set Today

Fall is definitely here and all of those rich vibrant colors inspired me today when doing makeup. When I step out of my home in Connecticut this weekend I have all these beautiful trees that surrounds the home. Colorful leaves like red, auburn, copper, and browns are everywhere. 
Inspired by being outside

Today on set I was asked to create a fall makeup look. Here is the eye shadow and lip color I selected to use on the model for the photo shoot.

Get The NARS Earthy Smoky Look

written by Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis

On the runways, makeup artists traded in the usual black for softer shades like brown, teal, and gray, for a rich, smoldering look that perfectly matches edgy-classic fashions. NARS created this earthy smoky look that is easy to do. This look can be great for a day or evening look.

For a smoldering combo of sultry browns, apply copper shadow to the lids, the inner corners, and at the base of the lower lash lines. Follow with a twig-tone shadow in the creases, blended up towards the brow bones using a smudge brush.

TRY NARS DUO EYESHADOW in Isolde (frosted ginger/ shimmering copper) or NARS SINGLE EYE SHADOW in Fez (velvety cocoa)

Use a nude pink blush to bring out bone structure, brushing the color just beneath the cheekbones. The low-key shade will give the face color, without overpowering the eyes. Highlight temples with a sheer, golden shade of blush or highlighter.

TRY NARS Blush Dolce Vita or NARS Blush Albatross

Prime lips with a vitamin-enriched lip treatment and line them with a nude liner, blending the color towards the center of the lips. Finish with a layer of gloss in a shiny shade of pinky-nude.

TRY NARS Lip liner Pencil Jilted Lover and NARS Lip Gloss Female Trouble
