Makeup Monday – Oscar Edition

Hollywood’s biggest night,  The Oscars!  The stars were out and they were slaying that red carpet.  Unfortunately, Leonardo DiCaprio doesn’t wear Shock Effect so I can’t do a whole post about him. (Congratulations Leo!!!)  So we will talk about the looks we CAN try to recreate.  Good thing for us is that lately, the trend is makeup that is great to wear every day, no matter the occasion.  Here are just some of the lovely ladies of the night.

Let’s start out with Sophie Turner.  She has such a gorgeous complexion and glow to her, and her dress was out of this world.  Her makeup was soft and went perfectly, it seems, with her personality.  For her look, use Twilight 03 on your eyes and Naturally Nude 04 with clear lip base on your lips.

Next we move on to Lady Gaga.  Can we just think back for a moment about the Lady Gaga who used to show up dressed in the most over the top ensembles?   She completely went from the “shock” factor to the “wow” factor.  And it. is. Amazing.  To recreate her look, use Naturally Nude 02 on your eyes.  On your lips, use Blushing Bronze 03 with a little bit of clear lip base.

Rachel McAdams matched her makeup to her dress.  To copy her look, use Ebony 03 and an angled liner brush.  Use the brush along the bottom lash line, and then along the top, blend out to create a beautiful emerald smokey eye.

Kerry Washington looked absolutely flawless last night.  She focused on her eyeliner, which you can use Sierra Nevada 06 with an angled liner brush.  Her eye shadow was very soft, and for that you can use Sierra Nevada 02.  She went with a nude lip, so you can use our clear lip base on its own, or with a little Naturally Nude 02.

Saoirse Ronan looked gorgeous!  Her dress was beautiful – it instantly reminded me of a mermaid.  Saoirse went with a smokey eye, and it had more of a matte look.  For this,use our eye primer to make the pigment more matte, along with Debonaire 05 and a little Debonaire 03 under the lower lash line.

What is Manuka Honey and why should I want it?

‘Pure, organic Manuka Honey is the perfect natural alternative for curing acne and skin infections,’ says skincare expert Malvina Fraser. ‘It’s also a natural moisturiser that improves skin hydration because it’s able to absorb moisture directly from the air and draw it into the skin.’ 

Manuka-honeyHoney has been used for centuries as a sweetener and even as a treatment for some medical conditions. What you may not know is that not all honey is the same. The antibacterial quality of honey depends on the type of honey as well as when and how it’s harvested. Some kinds of honey may be 100 times more potent than others.

Honey protects against damage caused by bacteria. Some honey also stimulates production of special cells that can repair tissue damaged by infection. In addition, honey has an anti-inflammatory action that can quickly reduce pain and inflammation once it is applied. -WebMD
