Rodin’s Mermaids… Mariangela

The Illuminating Liquid and Powder are perfect for creating a summer glow although they just come in one shade which only works with fair to tan skintones (I often notice this issue with highlight products). I layered them in the above look on Mariangela for an all over glowy effect. Note: Donald’s packaging is so fun that you will want to save the outer boxes and archive the empty containers!. .

Urban Decay X Beauty Is Boring… Singe

If you want to step up the drama, Singe is the lipstick for you! It’s a cool-toned, deep red with metallic shimmer and a formula that is buildable from semi sheer to opaque. It has lots of sheen and on camera, almost looks like a lacquer. The Naked Petite Heat Palette is an edited collection of shades from the Naked Heat Palette, all mattes. It’s an interesting combination since the eyeshadows are mainly warm and the lipstick is cool-toned.

Lashes & Luminosity With Kathleen Hou

Kathleen is as passionate about beauty as I am so her studio visit turned into a late night makeup party! We tested products, debated new formula innovations and chatted for hours about the beauty industry. One of our conclusions; Burberry is the most underrated of the beauty brands. Their Fresh Glow Gel Stick and Luminous Fluid Base are so good (see above)! I am also a big fan of their Face Contour Pen and Lip Color Contour. When it came time to do Kathleen’s lovely face, I wanted to do a look she hadn’t tried before – always tough with beauty editors because they try everything! I used a shimmery teal cream to create an exaggerated cat eye (this style works particularly well on almond eye shapes) and then added Dark Swan of Denmark’s incredible fluffy lashes.

1960’s Ingenue… Lilliya Scarlett

Lilliya’s skin is so good that using foundation is practically a crime! Instead, I mixed a tiny bit of concealer into moisturizer to create the world’s sheerest base – more of a dewy tint than any actual coverage. Then I dotted the same concealer (NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer) over any areas with redness. Note: The color in her eyelid crease and cheeks was created using the same product, the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Color Stick in Blush N24. .
