Making It Up

Where are you off to on this lovely long holiday weekend?  Today’s gloomy start certainly isn’t getting in the way of the beautiful afternoon  – so make some plans, throw on some sweet threads and have some fun.  While it’s fun to get dressed and ready for the weekend sometimes it’s even more fun to play with hair and make-up to create completely different looks.

Friday:  Go a little MOD with your look and heavily rim your top and bottom lashes with black liquid liner — It will give you a more defined/less smokey look.  On the top lash line extend the line to the outer corner and flick it up so that it resembles a “cat eye”.  Go very matte with your foundation just added a dusting of neutral blush on the apples and finish with an ultra matte nude lip — Super sophisticated and dramatic.  Pair your lovely look with a geometric black and white print top or dress and hair in a sleek high pony.

Saturday: Instead of highlighting the eyes make a big impact with deep vampy/berry lips.  First define your eyebrow with a matching pencil so that they are more prominent, next sweep a pretty peachy/shimmy across the lids, curl your lashes, and load up on the mascara.  Slick on some foundation and apply a pretty iridescent highlighter over the cheekbones, in the bow of the lips and in the corners of your eyes and dust a pretty flushed pink on the cheeks.  Last but certainly not least, line your lips with a deep shade of berry and fill in with the perfect purple-escent plumping gloss.  I LOVE MACS “Ban This” sparkly in your face lip lacquer  that is super pigmented and looks awesome at night.

Sunday: Be pretty and go for one final sun-kissed day look.  Dust your face with a nice matte bronzer to start, then find a gold and glimmery highlighter to do up the cheekbones.  Paint your eyes with a pretty deep gold all over the lid and a deep gold/brown in the crease.  Line with brown liners on the top and bottom lashes and smudge the bottom line to make it a bit smoky.  Lips should be glossy and glimmery choose a peach shade with gold specks for a pretty pout.
