Here is the Beautiful Dennise with half of her face done! Usually I do the entire complexion and then just one eye but this time I wanted to show you what a little TLC to your skin can do to your entire all day look! Look at how the skin glows on the right without looking like heavy makeup. I used barely any and not all over the place too. I always say, like in the video, if you have the wrong color you have to put it everywhere. Also look how the eye on the left gets lost because you are more focused on freckles and red cheeks! Also a little natural brow filler can lift the entire side of the face, like on the right! You like? I love... and so does Dennise! My tip of the week this week was all about beautiful girls with freckles!
To get this entire look the products used are:
Bienfait Mulit-vital Teinte SPF30 Sunscreen # 2
Concealer: Camee Macquecomplet
T-Zone Powder: Dual Finish Powder Sand III
Bronzer: Natural Sunkiss
Blush: Miel Glace
Brushes: #2 (Foundation), #6 (Powder, Bronzer, and Blush), #18 dual end, ( lid and liner), #17 blending, (crease and highlight)
Eye shadow Base: Aquatique in Nude
Lipstick: Natural Beauty
Brow Pencil: Sable
Mascara: Hypnose Drama Excessive Black
Here is Dennise with the completed look: Love it Gorgeous mom, it make take a little bit more time than two minutes the first week but with practice I am sure you can have this done in no time!!!

Morning MakeUp Call.... On the Road... With some of my Favorite Followers, Trend Show, and the 5 pan palettes!
Nancy above and Shirley below are two who came in. I'm so glad I got to show you a trick or two for your eyes! Nancy above wanted a more fancy look! I used the 5 pan palette below in Mauve Cherie. I altered the instructions with the palette to make it not too illuminating on her crease or brow bone. Instead I used her all over base (step 1) on the lid only, The area you can use shimmer/luster at any age. We used Daylight Matte Highlight shadow sold separately for her brow bone highlight. Looks amazing Nancy! Hope you get to try some other color schemes with the same brushes and techniques! Nancy, I know you photograph the beach a lot... here is that blog link I found and told you about... I get very sad if I don't get to the beach once a week and this blog helps when I can't be there: http://www.mindy-pictureaday.blogspot.com/
Shirley I went a little bit more simple with a few custom chosen single eye shadows! We made the lid shine, and look bigger, with my white pencil trick and a shadow called Creme Luster, her browbone and crease were kept matte! Loved how simple this made the eyes pop!
5 pan palette in Mauve Cherie on Jennifer's Beautiful eyes at the Grove Nordstroms!!!
Top Seller Taupe Crave 5 pan palette is still my very favorite! I wanted you all to see a face chart with some more directions on where each shade can go!
I followed the video I made with Nancy and the link above to make the eyes bright! Love this look you can get with Taupe Crave. The liner on the inside of the eye was Black Coffee Khol Pencil set with the darkest shadow in the palette! Skin was perfected with Teint Miracle Foundation (the Julia Roberts one) only $37 in Bisque 1 N. T zone was set with dual finish powder and the checks were contoured using Sunkiss Bronzer and Miel Glace Blush. I used my favorite eye treatment Genifique eye over the top of the makeup on the cheek bones to make them shine and light up! You look amazing Jacq! Thanks for being my gorgeous model today!
In Phoenix I was able to meet and work with Sheryl Cooper, dancer and amazing mom, married to the rocker Alice Cooper for 35 years now! I used the same Taupe Crave palette on the eyes in a very soft sculpted way! Can't wait to get you out here Sheryl and Alice for Rock of Ages!!!
Taupe crave is for everyone! I wanted to show Beauty at every Age as we used Taupe Crave just as the instructions explain below! I love how it makes the lids shine bigger and keeps the brow bone subtle! The crease is also kept matte to avoid showing any extra texture and lines through the crease! love that we used that pop shimmer highlight just at the center of the lid! Looks Sexy Chic and Young!

Just remember that if you wear a lot of eye shadow do a really soft lip, and if you wear a bold lip, do a really soft eye! She said otherwise you might start to feel like a drag queen! Don't be a drag just be a queen!!! ah ha ha... you are fun Rula and I am so glad I got to paint your beautiful eyes blue! My Favorite color!

On the Red Carpet Brittany Shined ! I loved how her blue eyes still stood out overall and her skin just glowed! That's one thing about makeup, sometimes you put too much on and you no longer can see what color of eyes you have! The makeup overtakes or over powers your natural beauty! I'm GLAAD I learned along the way and kept those blue eyes so blue!
THANK Brittany for the chance to meet you this day, and for the conversations we have had after, at events and film festivals!
My blog seems to have perfect timing... This month Brittany got the cover of MAXIM... looking gorgeous! Love it Brittany!
P.S. ARTS is one of my favorite non-profit organizations just because I started painting while wearing diapers!!! Art was my favorite thing about school! check out my posts:
MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL:
I love that Lancome felt the same way as I and the importance of this cause and got involved on a big scale! I also love that some of my very favorites came to help support P.S. Arts!
