Mary Kay Fall Trends Out On The Town!

Anyone who lives in Oregon knows we survive the rain for late summer and early Fall. It doesn’t get more beautiful than Oregon in the fall, with our warm days, cool crisp evenings and the most gorgeous colors of the year.  I just want to be out everyday this time of year soaking it all in while I can. On top of loving the weather I love all the new fashion and beauty products that launch in September. I love to choose  a few new colors to my spruce up makeup palette.

I recently showed you all how to create a smoky eye using Mary Kay products. The smoky eye is one of the biggest trends is Hollywood Mystique, old school Hollywood glamour with a modern twist.

Jocelyn and I had the chance to check out Florence and the Machine at an outdoor concert (She is AMAZING). For my girls night out I was excited to try a fun smoky eye, and a soft lip color. With my fair skin I find a smoky eye a very versatile look I can start with lighter shades for day and easily kick it up a notch for a more dramatic look when I head out at night. Once I  perfect my smoky eye I love to use Mary Kay’s Ultimate Mascara it makes my lashes look great. With all the great colors in the Hollywood Mystique Mary Kay line you can find the perfect look for all your special occasions this fall.

Do you have any  beauty-must haves this Fall?

New Contest! Get The Look: Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott with a Mary Kay Prize Pack!

The 2012 CMT Awards always brings the glitz, glam and fun to the city of Nashville. Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott upped-the-ante on how to perfect a country-star look with a black body-hugging dress and glam makeup to match. Hillary’s attention-grabbing eyes focused on bold lashes with smokey lids. Her flawless complexion served as the ultimate canvas for an overall red carpet head-turner. Now, you can achieve the same makeup look with help from Mary Kay!

To Get Hillary’s flawless finish prep with the Mary Kay Foundation Primer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and then apply your shade match of the Mary Kay Matte-Wear Liquid Foundation with the Mary Kay Liquid Foundation Brush. Brush on a pink hue cheek with the Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Strawberry Cream for radiance on the cheekbones.

To get her dramatic smokey eye makeup along with vivacious lashes, start with the Mary Kay Eye Primer directly onto the lid. Then apply a charcoal hue like the Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Coal to start the smoke. Follow by adding a lighter copper shimmer for some pop near the brow line with the Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Copper Glow and finish with a couple swoops of the Mary Kay Lash Love Waterproof Mascara in Black to complete the country crooners’ look.

Mary Kay was kind enough to send me a set to review and let me tell you it is amazing. I love the foundation and primer both provide amazing coverage but are still light on my skin. I was new to using a foundation brush but really loved it, I found it helped me build a little extra coverage where needed much easier.

I love the new Mineral colors from Mary Kay Strawberry Cream adds the perfect pink flush. The beautiful Copper Glow adds the perfect sparkle to a smoky eye and really compliments the Coal shade. Make sure you start off with the Mary Kay Eye Primer and your shadow will look great all day. Finally what is better than waterproof mascara in summer, well besides sun? Mary Kay Lash Love Waterproof Mascara is amazing, long full lashes that last and last. I road tested the mascara at a local waterpark and even after a day of water slides and swimming my lashes looked great.

So excited about this amazing prize pack, check out the look I created with the products and be sure to enter below!
