Mary Kay: Metro Chic Fall nail line

I am loving the new Metro Chic collection by Mary Kay,  the polish goes on like a dream. I have been a little polished obsessed lately and the purple Intensity shade is gorgeous! The silver color is a bit too metallic for my general taste but I did find someone using it as a french tip with the purple that I now have to try.

I am also using the Mary Kay base/top coat to increase the wearing time of my polish and its adds a great shine, and gives me a good day or two extra before I have sever chipping issues.

Makeup Artist Tips – Fashion Week Beauty At Home‏ + CONTEST!


Backstage With Mary Kay® Professional Makeup Artist Ashunta Sheriff …

Creating the Cesar Galindo 2010 Fall Collection
Runway Look at Home

Ashunta Sheriff is one of today’s top makeup artists, constantly sought out to create the hottest trends in beauty for some of today’s brightest stars such as Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Ashlee Simpson, Paula Patton, Rihanna, Sharon Stone, Adrienne Bailon and Jennifer Hudson, to name a few. Most recently, Ashunta hit the catwalks with Beauty Sponsor Mary Kay to create modern looks for the show of Cesar Galindo’s 2010 fall collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Ashunta created the stunning rock star inspired makeup look using Mary Kay® products to perfectly complement the rock ‘n’ roll-inspired Cesar Galindo’s Fall 2010 Collection – a juxtaposition of head-turning style, color and detail, featuring textures with matte and shine and inspiring colors such as red, silver, gold, purple and turquoise. With the eyes being the focal point of the look, Ashunta created a smokey, heavily lined cat eye. The lips made a soft, yet eye-catching statement in a beautiful coral hue, set against dewy skin and berry-kissed cheeks.

We spoke with Ashunta backstage to learn how she created the models’ show-stopping looks and how these looks can be recreated for everyday wear …

Tips for Creating the Runway Look at Home

· It’s All About the Perfect Canvas

o After cleansing the face and applying moisturizer, perfect skin with a tinted moisturizer and concealer.

o Use a richly pigmented blush shade such as Mary Kay® Mineral Cheek Color in Bold Berry to sweep over the cheek area. For an edgy, but soft look, start at the apples of the cheeks and blend upward and gradually blend the color outward, toward the ears.

· Striking Cat Eyes

o Start off by applying a vanilla shade of eye color to the base of the eyelids, followed by a rich blue eye color layered over the vanilla shade – other shades that will work for this look include dark grays and even black. For a highlighting effect, apply the vanilla eye color shade to the brow bone area.

o Maximize drama needed for this intense look by creating a cat-like wing using an angled brush dipped in Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color in Coal. Blend the Coal shade into the crease to add depth to the eyes. Mary Kay® Eyeliner in both Black and Navy, applied on the upper and lower lash lines, further add a “pop” factor to the eyes.

o To finish the eye look, apply two coats of a high-performing mascara like Mary Kay® Ultimate Mascara in Black.

o Insider tip: with a small brush, like the Eyeliner/Eyebrow brush from the Mary Kay® Brush Collection, smudge Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color in Coal on top of the eyeliner on the upper and lower lash lines. This increases the intensity of the look, while “setting” the eye liner.

· Gorgeous Coral Lips

o Balance the smoldering edginess of the eyes, with coral lips, which are easy to achieve with the help of Mary Kay® Creme Lipstick in Sunset.

o Insider tip: a quality lip liner can boost staying power for lip color. For a natural, subdued lip, apply a neutral lip liner, outlining the lip and filling in over the entire lip area. Follow with lipstick or lip gloss.
