Happy party season friends! As the end of the year approaches, it sometimes feels like there are not enough hours in the day. Often we are running from one event to another with little time in between to take a breath. I urge you all to remember to take a few moments for self care - it makes all the difference. A 5 minute meditation, or even just pouring a cup tea to force yourself to sit down and reflect on the awesome year you have had, as well as look forward to what is to come.
With little time, I turn to a few go-to looks to take from my full days to my fun evenings. I LOVE our Twinkle Powders as they offer such diversity in texture and tone depending on how you apply them. I created this soft smokey look that can be dialed up or down depending on your personal taste...I hope you enjoy!
I used some of my favourites from our fall collection, as well as our new Loose Twinkle Powder in Gifted (it's amazing!)
How to get the look:
Apply Zealot all over your lid, apply Gifted in the crease area and in the corner of the top of your lid. Use an angle brush to apply a soft line underneath your eye as well. Here is how it looks before you blend:
Use a fluffy brush to blend the Gifted and the Zealot together, add Lumen to your brow bone and in the inner corner of the eyes. Two coats of mascara give you long lush lashes!
To finish use the Heroine Universal Creme on the apples of your cheeks for an 'apres-ski' look (or 'apres-martini' look-whatever your style is!) and use the Elate Pressed Bronzer in Sunkiss for an easy contour in the hollow underneath your cheekbone. Apply a swipe of Vivacious on your lips and you are ready the boardroom and the after work bash.
You can personalize your Twinkle Powder to be darker or more sheer sparkle, and change up the lip for a deeper red (I currently am mad-crushing on Warrior lipstick) What do you think? Love this look - or leave it?
Whatever you are up to this weekend, I hope it brings you joy. xo
