The look for Spring 2010 is soft and feminine. The skin is clean and luminous. Cheek color is used more to sculpt the face rather than as cheek color. The tones are soft neutral beige and pink. Lips are matte neutral pale tones. Eyes are also soft neutral shades of browns, beige, gold tones with some shimmer and some matte finishes.

The look that I designed for The Purple Event was a soft chocolate smokey eye with a pale pink cheek and a soft beige matte lip. The look was sponsored by Mac Cosmetics.


PREP: Crealine H2o Hydrating toner to cleanse the skin www.TotalBeauty.com
Embryolisse Moisturizer to hydrate the skin http://www.Embryolisse/

YSL Touch Eclat Pen to highlight the cheek bones, the brow bone and bow of the lip http://www.YSLBeautyuUs.com/

FACE: Mac Face and Body http://www.Maccosmetics.com/

EYES: Mac Paint Pot Quiet Natural as a base for the eye swept up to the crease and underneath the lash line, then layer Constructivist Paint Pot over Quiet Natural, blend up to crease then sweep Chocolate Brown pigment in soft feathering motions, then line water line with Teddy kohl pencil, then use Shu Uemura Lash Curler http://www.ShuUemura-USA.com/ and black Dior Show Mascara http://www.Dior.com/ and clear brow gel and brush up brows to finish the look.

CHEEKS: Blush Baby blush used as a contour. Start at the top of the cheekbones and sweep into hairline www.Maccosmetics.com

LIPS: I used Mac Lip Erase in pale to nude out the lip, and then Bamboom lip paint dabbed on with a finger and no liner for a soft romantic look www.Maccosmetics.com
