Last Day To Enter: Emile Sande Get The Look Contest!

Jocelyn and I were lucky enough to see Emeli Sande in her first concert in Portland, OR. Neither Jocelyn or I were very familiar with Emeli before the concert, we just knew she was huge in the UK. But before she finished her first song, we were both were in awe of Emeli’s talent.

When she started to sing it was obvious why she had garnered such a following in the UK. Backed by a four-piece band, Emeli sounded flawless from her soulful “Heaven,”to her  upbeat numbers, “Breaking The Law” and rousing “Next To Me,”.  It was definitely one of those concerts you leave in awe knowing you saw something special. I have had Emeli playing on Spotify since the concert, I am hooked.

We were lucky enough to go backstage after the show and meet Emeli, this girl is gorgeous and so sweet.I loved her look from flawless skin to her smokey eyes. Here is how to get her look with Rimmel London.

 

To recreate Emeli’s look you need to start with a flawless base, Rimmel’s Match Perfection Skin Tone Adapting Concealer will help even out any blemishes or dicoloration.

Then follow with Soft Kohl Eye Pencil by  and smudge to create a thick smokey line. Coat your eyelashes with two coats of Scandal Eyes Show Off Mascara for a dark dramatic look. Finally top off you look with Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Pink Blush.

Not your ordinary “mooisturizer”, Udderly Smooth was originally developed by a pharmacist, Bill Kennedy Sr., more than 30 years ago in America’s heartland to soothe and soften cow’s udders during harsh winters.

Today, Udderly Smooth products are still manufactured by three generations of the Kennedy family.

Find the power of our Udderly Smooth at food, drug and mass merchandisers such as Walmart, CVS, Rite Aid, Dollar General and Ace Hardware. Learn more about the complete line of Udderly Smooth products at www.udderlysmooth.com. Look for the package with the black and white cow spots to feel Udderly Smooth.
