I wanted to let you guys know that CoverGirl’s Makeup Artist Molly Stern did Amy Adam’s beautiful makeup last night, and thought that you might be interested in learning how she achieved the look.

Here are the details from Molly:

First of all I have to say I was the most excited I have ever been this morning. I couldn’t sleep a wink. I was dreaming about Amy’s makeup.

I started by prepping the face with Jurlique Citrus Spray to give the face a healthy lift then I gave Amy a light facial massage with La Mer moisturizing lotion.

Next I based her face with YSL Perfect Touch #2.

Then l blushed her cheeks with Chantecaille Aqua Blush in Frivolous as a peachy base with Chantecaille Sesame Peach eyeshadow over top. Her eyes are based with NARS cream eyeshadow in Maracaibo. Over that I blended Shu Uemura shadow in gray 960 mixed with shu uemura shadow in purple 700 all over the lid up into the crease. With a flat shadow brush I added a touch of NARS shadow in Ondine on the inside corner of her lid to give the eye a little gold hint. I lined the top and underneath of her eye with Trish McEvoy’s Arabian nights definer. To soften the line underneath I added a soft smudge of Suqqu lavender shadow in #27.

On her lashes I put 1 soft coat of CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Mascara in Black Ruby. On her lip I based her lip with La Mer lipbalm then applied a thin coat of Outlast Lipstain by CoverGirl in Plum Pout. Then a sheer layer of Shu Uemura wine lip color in 265 with a dot of CoverGirl Wetslicks AmazeMint in Plum Crazy at the center of her lip for a little extra pout. That’s also what she took in her bag for touch ups.

Inspiration. A cross between Talouse Latrec’s dancing girls and the watercolor feeling of a Gustav Klimt painting.

The day was amazing. My goal was to make sure that her makeup was saturated but not overdone. I wanted to give her a face without competing with the dress.

I have been smitten with Cover Girl’s Lash Blast mascara since I first tried it. I love how great my lashes look and how long it lasts with no flaking! It beats the $20 department store mascaras and even the highly praised Diorshow and at under $8 a tube a girl can look good even in the middle of a recession.

Now Cover Girl has gone and made a good thing better with their new Lash Blast Luxe. All the things we love about Lash Blast now with tinted luxe shimmers. Set to hit the shelves in February 09, I can’t wait to get my hands on one!

*Editors note I did find Lash Blast Luxe online at Drugstore.com though I have not seen it in my local drugstore yet.

Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have, Number 1!

I saved my favorite product for last!  CoverGirl’s Lash Blast is BY FAR my favorite product of 2008.  I will never spend over $10 on mascara again.  I wouldn’t have bought this product, because I’m a total mascara snob – but Rena with CoverGirl sent it to me, and told me I had to try it.  I tried it, and seriously, I’ll never use another mascara.  It is just as good (if not better) than any $30 mascara you’d buy at Sephora.  Before Lash Blast, I always used Diorshow – and would never try anything else.  I thank Rena with CoverGirl for introducing me to a cheaper, superior mascara.  You guys all should try it – you won’t be sorry!

Merry Christmas everyone!  That’s my 10 products of 2008.  Hope you liked our countdown…and thanks for all the support you guys give us everyday!

CoverGirl’s Lash Blast mascara is topping a lot of makeup must have lists. Oprah herself just endorsed it as one of her Summer Must Haves. Have you tried this mascara, what was your opinion? I have used other CoverGirl mascaras and loved them I can’t wait to try lash Blast.
