Make Up For Ever for Dolores Cortes at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim

For the Dolores Cortes show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami, Make Up For Ever key artist Lottie created a beautiful safari-chic make up look inspired by bohemian references of the 50’s Parisian woman, combined with acid and exotic colors from Bells Beach in Australia. The end result was a palette of shimmering greens and golds.

Complexion & Cheeks: The skin was glowing and fresh faced. Lottie first applied MAKE UP FOR EVER Sculpting Blush #22 to lightly highlight the cheeks.

Eyes: The eyes were the focal point of the look. Lottie first applied MAKE UP FOR EVER Diamond Shadow #302 in teal to the lid, and then applied MAKE UP FOR EVER Diamond Shadow #310 in a shimmering emerald green starting one quarter of the way in from the outer corner of the eye to the outer eye lid and then into the crease and lower brow bone. Next Lottie applied MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream #11 in gold to the inner corner of the eye lid for a metallic pop. The eyes were lined with MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Eyes #0L in black and the lashes were coated with MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Smoky Lash.

Lips: Depending on each model’s preference for a matte or glossy nude lip, Lottie applied either MAKE UP FOR EVER Lipstick #502 or MAKE UP FOR EVER Glossy Full Couleur #10 to complete the look.

From this look we will be giving away 1 Diamond Shadow in #310 (emerald green) , 1 Aqua Cream  in #11 (gold) and 1 Glossy Full Couleur in #10 (peachy pink). To enter, simply leave a comment below on this entry by midnight on Tuesday, July 27th. A winner will be chosen at random and notified via email on Wednesday. Good luck!

Check back with us tomorrow for the look created for the Mara Hoffman swim show and giveaway. And don’t forget to check back with us later in the week for the looks created at the Aqua Di Lara, Luli Fama, Marysia Swim and Tyler Rose. Good luck and don’t forget to enter our Ed Hardy giveaway!

Make Up For Ever at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami

Make Up For Ever is the official makeup sponsor at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami, an event where top swimwear designers from around the world gather to showcase their upcoming collections. Their artists have been working hard Friday, Saturday, Sunday and today to create looks that stand up to the Miami heat.

To celebrate the occasion, Product Girl and Make Up For Ever have teamed up to give away products from using to create the looks featured in some of the shows. We will host a new giveaway each day of this week and we’re starting things off with the look from the Ed Hardy fashion show.

Makeup artist James Vincent was the key artist for the Ed Hardy swim show on Friday, July 16th. He created a bold black eye and strong red lip for a glamorous, old Hollywood look.

Complexion & Cheeks: The skin was bronzed and dewy with highlights on the brow bone and high cheek.

Eyes: To get a neutral base for the eye, James applied MAKE UP FOR EVER Eye Shadow #156 up to the brow bone. He then created a thick rim around the top of the eye extending to the liner beyond the outer corner of the lid using MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Black, and he then went on to rim the lower lash line as well. He finished by applying two coats of MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Smoky Lash.

Lips: For a gorgeous pop of red on the lips, James applied MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream #8.

From this look we will be giving away  1 Aqua Black (a pot of matte black eye shadow/liner) , 1 Aqua Eyes liner in #0L (black) and 1 Aqua Cream in #8 (a tomato red). To enter, simply leave a comment below on this entry by midnight on Monday, July 26th. A winner will be chosen at random and notified via email on Tuesday. Good luck!

Check back with us tomorrow for the look created for the Dolores Cortes swim show and giveaway. And don’t forget to check back with us later in the week for the looks created at the Mara Hoffman, Aqua Di Lara, Luli Fama, Marysia Swim and Tyler Rose.

T3 Bespoke Labs Featherweight Hair Dryer Giveaway

We have a surprise giveaway for you! I didn’t plan this one but when I was approached about giving away an award winning T3 Bespoke Labs Featherweight Hair Dryer, how could I say no?

T3 is celebrating their 5 year anniversary and they thought it would be fun to calculate just how much time consumers saved over the years. The first to use the T3 Featherweight Dryer when the company burst on the scene saved an average of 10 minutes every day. Assuming you style your hair six days a week, that works out to 270 hours or approximately a one-week vacation! In honor of this occasion, T3 is also having a sale on their products and you can go to www.stylesavecelebrate.com to find a participating retailer. Lucky for you, you have the chance to win your very own T3 right here.
