The fall & wintery weather can be absolutely brutal on your skin. The damage range from dryness, dullness, & losing your skin’s glow. With Artistry’s Illuminating Essence, you can regain that youthful glow within just two weeks. Illuminating Essence can prevent & help repair discoloration (such as redness & dark spots), aging, as well as visibly making your skin brighter. This product contains a special blend of antioxidants that helps protect skin as well as preventing discoloration & signs of aging. Just apply a small amount on on your face & neck area in the morning & at night and watch your skin transform.

My How To’s – Green Look Tutorial

June 2, 2008

I’ve been stuck on greens all last week (as you can tell from my current Create This Look). Here’s my tutorial for my favorite green look:

green eyeshadow tutorial

1) Apply an eyeshadow base (I used NAO’s concealer/eyeshadow base) on the entire lid, passed the crease, and up to the browbone.

2) Apply a light beige green eyeshadow (I used MAC’s Equibeige eyeshadow) to the inner lid. Apply a bright green eyeshadow (I used NAO’s Arrant/Fled eyeshadow duo; I used the green side) on the outer lid.

4) Apply a olive green eyeshadow (I used Milani Antique Gold eyeshadow) to the crease and blend up to the browbone. Apply a matte black eyeshadow (I used Artistry Black Tie eyeshadow) on just the outer crease.

5) Use a brown eyeliner as a base and apply it to the lower lashline 1/3 of the way. Apply a dark brown eyeshadow (I used Artistry’s Espresso eyeshadow) on top of the eyeliner. Apply an eyeshadow base to the inner lash line and then, apply a light beige eyeshadow on top. Use a light shimmery beige as a highlighter on the browbone. Finish off with a few coats of black mascara on both the top & bottom lashes. You can also use a white pencil eyeliner on the bottom waterline like I did. That’s completely optional.

The finished look
