This week on FASHION Magazine Beauty Panel, we were asked how to transition our hair and makeup from day to night, and here’s how I answered.
Behold, my magical changing face. Is that the same person up there?
Find out how I go from a polished daytime look to a sultry evening look using some of my favourite products. I am really in love with Clinique Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tints for Eyes, shown here in Lavish Lilac). I have been wearing them as a sheer wash all over the lids and they last all day without a primer. Maybelline Colour Whisper Lipsticks are new from the brand, and this shade, Pin Up Peach, creates beautiful, juicy lips and brightens my complexion. Love love love. Check out previous reviews of some products I used:
Out of the many products that I tried this year, here are the 9 that have stolen my heart forever (in no particular order). Links lead to the products’ corresponding reviews.
Diorskin Nude Healthy Glow Powder in Aurora is the first Dior makeup I ever bought, and is still my favourite bronzer to this day. Let’s hope they come out with another great one next summer. (Limited Edition for Summer 2011)
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush gets a lot of rave reviews and for good reason. I recently added Exposed to my stash and my friends agree that it is a universally flattering blush.
Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani in Rouge 406 is a beautiful red lipstick and the formula is divine. I try a lot of lipsticks and think that the Rouge d’Armani is one of the best. I must try more colours next year. (Limited Edition for Fall 2011)
