Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have #8!

Do you or someone you know love Hourglass? Luckily for YOU this holiday season, Hourglass has released a “Best Of” gift set! You get the BEST of their products – in ONE GIFT SET – for only $59!

The Best of Hourglass set is a sophisticated four-piece collection of bestselling products that will make your skin look flawless, lashes dramatic, and lips gleam with hydrated shine.

This best-of set features two primers that are designed for all skin types. Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15 neutralizes redness (even rosacea) to create an even skintone; helps minimize the appearance of all visible pores, fine lines, and imperfections; extends the durability of all makeup applied on top of it; and repels water. No. 28 Primer Serum is infused with 28 ultrahydrating ingredients to nourish your skin. This silky, lightweight oil blend glides on and quickly absorbs to hydrate the skin, refine the appearance of visible pores, and prepare your skin for makeup application. Fourteen essential oils soften the complexion: bois de rose, lavender, geranium, petit grain, lemon, rosemary, vanilla, clove, amyris, orange, ylang ylang, eucalyptus, cedar, and rose geranium. Ten lipid-rich plant oils help hydrate the skin’s underlying layers: hazelnut, kukui nut, rose hip, borage, olive, green tea, cherry pit, sweet almond, jojoba, and evening primrose. And four skin-rejuvenating vitamins condition the complexion: A, B5, C and E.

With the included Film Noire Full Spectrum Mascara, luxurious lashes are merely a swipe away. This multitasking mascara lengthens, lifts, adds volume and clump-free definition, and conditions. The triple-cut signature hourglass shaped brush enables you to achieve full, defined, reflective, jet-black lashes. Complete your look with a full-size Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss. Richly pigmented, never sticky or tacky, this water-resistant gloss fills in fine lines on the lips making them appear soft and smooth and delivers opulent shine.

This set contains:
- 0.33 oz Veil Mineral Primer
- 0.35 oz Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara in Onyx
- 0.24 oz Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss in Ignite
- 0.16 oz N° 28 Primer Serum

Emmys: Christina Hendricks and Zooey Deschanel!

At Sunday’s Primetime Emmy Awards, nominees Zooey Deschanel and Christina Hendricks both looked stunning in makeup by Hourglass Cosmetics.

Below is how to replicate the looks:

Zooey Deschanel

New Girl star Zooey Deschanel, nominated in the Lead Comedy Actress category, can be counted on to wow on the red carpet. “She’s a risk-taker who follows her instincts,” says makeup artist Jorjee Douglass, who created a beautiful makeup look to offset her striking blue Reem Acra dress, and her glossy raven locks.

Complexion: Jorjee began by priming the skin with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, and followed with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory. Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer was utilized in two different shades – Fair and Pearl. She finished the skin with Hourglass Oxygen Mineral Powder in #1.

Cheeks: She applied Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush, topped with Dior’s Rosy Glow in 001 petal.

Eyes: She started with the light shimmer shade of Hourglass Vol. 6 Eye Palette across the whole lid, then contoured the crease of the eye with the brown and black colors; and finally, blended the whole lid with the pink. She then shimmered the entire lid with Beauty is Life Everest.

She framed the eyes using Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner in Ebony and Hourglass Script Precision Liquid Liner. She lined the top in a cat shape bringing it out past the lid and the lashes. Lining under the eyes, she went from the middle of the eye and straight out –making it a princess version of Cleopatra’s eye. She finished the eyes with false lashes and Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer.

Lips: Jorjee completed the look with Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Ballet.

Christina Hendricks

With her creamy skin, Titian hair and killer curves, Christina Hendricks always sizzles on the red carpet. For the Emmys, makeup artist Vanessa Scali gave theMad Men star a gorgeous look to complement the old Hollywood feel of her Christian Siriano gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. I was inspired by the soft, feminine look of the dress and its cool, shimmery neutral color against her skin. I kept her face soft and romantic, but added contrast and strength with a bold lip color.” Hendricks, nominated in the Supporting Drama Actress category this year, looked stunning.

Complexion: Vanessa began by using Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum. She loves this primer serum as it delivers penetrating moisture and leaves the skin feeling beautiful and clean. She then applied Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Shell – the formula is effortless to apply and made her skin look natural and flawless. Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer was applied wherever necessary.

 

Cheeks: Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush was applied to the apples of the cheeks blending outward to the cheekbones.
