Exude the confidence of Alyssa Milano with insider beauty tips from Mary Kay Glam Squad celebrity makeup artist, Virginia Linzee

Face:

Begin with Mary Kay TimeWise Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation for glowing skin that looks flawless on the red carpet. Don’t forget to bring the foundation down the neck for all over flawless coverage and blend evenly using a cosmetic sponge. Using the Mary Kay Facial Highlighting Pen, smooth under the eyes, on the cheekbones, and down the bridge of the nose to instantly brighten the face.

Add warmth and dimension to the skin with Mary Kay Mineral Powder in a shade that is two shades darker than your own skin tone. Using an angled cheek brush, lightly dust the powder along the hairline, in the hollows of the cheekbones, under the chin and down the neck to define the angles of your face. Sweep a little Mineral Cheek Color in Citrus Bloom onto the apples of the cheeks, using a blush brush.

Eyes:

To keep your eyes red carpet worthy all night, start with a little Mary Kay Eye Primer. For eyes like Alyssa’s, use the Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trio in Tuxedo. Start with the silver on the eyelid. Then use a crease brush to blend the black shade into the crease, as well as the outside part of the eyelid and in the lower lash line. Finally, use a brush to blend some of the white in the inner corner of the eye to add brightness and makes eyes really pop. For stunning eyes, curl lashes and apply several coats of Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in Black.

Lips:

Apply True Dimensions Lipstick in Natural Beauté and NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Au Naturel. Complete Alyssa’s red carpet look with Mary Kay Makeup Finishing Spray by Skindinavia, applying in a “T” and “X” formation to keep makeup looking fresh for up to 16 hours!

HELIOCARE – daily antioxidant formula!

mhu-reviews-1016

Hello HELIOCARE! This amazing capsule – is literally beauty in a bottle. This powerful antioxidant is naturally derived from the extract of Polypodium leucotomos (PLE), which is a fern native to Central and South America. This extract has been used for centuries as a remedy for skin related conditions.

This fern, which was once an aquatic plant, adapted to life on land and created its own protection from exposure to harsh UV rays. By utilizing this organically grown extract, HELIOCARE delivers antioxidants that start helping protect the skin from the first day you take it.*

HELIOCARE’s active extract contains antioxidants, which aid in eliminating free radicals produced by sun exposure. A reduction in these potentially dangerous free radicals helps to maintain younger, more resilient skin.*

Sunscreens play an important role in protecting your skin from the sun. However, many environmental factors can reduce the effectiveness of your sunscreen, including weather, location and what you are doing in the sun (swimming, sweating, etc.)

Because HELIOCARE is a daily capsule taken orally, it benefits skin over your entire body. However, HELIOCARE is not a sunscreen and should be used in addition to topical sun protection.

This antioxidant is perfect not only for summer, but all year round! By taking these capsules, you’re utilizing the benefits of the extract, and protecting your skin! Utilizing an extract from a well-studied tropical fern called Polypodium leucotomos, Heliocare™ has been shown to help maintain the skin’s ability to protect against sun-related effects and aging.*

I’ve been using these for almost a month now**, and I love them!

Introducing Mally’s Professional Lift and Tape Kit!

mhu-reviews-10147

This gorgeous eyeshadow palette from Mally’s comes with everything you need to perfect a gorgeous new look*!

Mally’s Professional Lift and Tape Kit is an eye shadow kit that contains not only beautiful shadows, but the extra pro secret to a shadow look that lifts the appearance of the eye and avoids the droop that just a touch of misapplied shadow can create. The beautiful shades blend perfectly to emphasize the right parts of the eye, but the Shadow Tape keeps you from dragging down the look by misapplying. Use it, and you’ll love how lifted and youthful your eyes can look, every time. Includes: Mally’s Shadow Secret Eye Shadow Palette, with Whipped Cream, a beige shade; Macchiato, a shimmering brown shade; Mocha, a brown shade; and Coffee Bean, a deep shimmering brown shade, 40 pieces of Shadow Tape, and one double-ended brush.

What I LOVE about Mally’s products – is they think of everything. Not only do you get these beautiful eyeshadow colors, but they’ve also provided a double-ended brush AND shadow tape – to make your shadow look flawless! I tried this palette above and I LOVE IT! The shadow tape is amazing! I re-use one strip – so they’ll last me even longer! I love this product!

Take the lightest eye shadow shade and apply all over, from lash line to brow bone. This is going to create a beautiful canvas for your shadows to lay upon, so you get that amazing ombre effect.

Apply a strip of tape to each eye from the outer corner to the end of the brow. The Shadow Tape guides you where you need to go, so application is quick and easy!

Take the lid shade and apply from lash line to crease, using a windshield wiper motion. The tape will help you end your eye shadow in the perfect spot, giving the eye that youthful, lifted appearance!

Take the darker shade and apply it in the crease for depth and definition. If you don’t have a crease, just apply the shadow where you feel the top of your eyeball.

Remove the tape, and take the darkest shadow and line all around the top and bottom lash line.

Blend any harsh lines with your finger or a clean brush.
