What’s not to love about overalls?

Friday, February 15, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: She’s A Rainbow
You don’t have to be Ziggy Stardust to get away with wearing a rainbow on your face. To prove it, our makeup guru Stacey Nishimoto is giving us the scoop on how to get the perfect sugar-coated lids. And yes, you can actually do this!
To make it a reality, it needs to happen on fresh, dewy, SHIMMERING skin. Apply foundation over semi-damp skin and finish with a veil of loose powder. Then highlight cheekbones, temples and the bridge of nose with a pearly shimmer. Glowing skin balances the look of wearing a prism of colors. Also, mixing metallic eye pigments with matte shadows adds texture and elegance to your bone structure.
Now that you have a fresh face, brush metallic gold shadow all over the lid. Don’t worry about getting the blending perfect, think of it as a water painting…colors bleed into each other.
Next, apply turquoise shadow to the inner corner of your eye with a hint lime green on the outer inner corner to frame the turquoise.
Now it’s time for a splash of orange above the gold lid. Blend the shadows into your brow to make your sherbet hues melt onto the forehead.
Apply lavender to your temples with purple below on the tail end of brow bone. Next, use a metallic green-blue (I used a pencil here) a draw a sideways V to frame your eye.
Last, but not least, sweep yellow(!) blush on cheekbones with a pop of pink blended underneath.
Have so much fun experimenting – the color combinations are endless! Just use circular motions with brushes and blend, blend, blend away..even your mistakes!
