What better way to ring in 2013 than with a flawless face? Bring your best face forward, sans the commitment of a timely beauty regimen in 5 easy steps.
Richard’s Smokey Eye Tutorial:
Hydrate! Supple skin is a must for any New Year’s occasion. Start with Replenishing Daily Solution to nourish and perfect. Loaded with natural moisturizing actives and skin protectants, it’s a go-to for creating a clean canvas.
Luminize! Add a hint of shine with Peau Vierge Tinted Luminizer. This beauty breakthrough, evening out any redness in the skin while smoothing and perfecting, leaves your face radiant, polished and New Years ready!
Warm things up! Add a subtle hit of bronze with our Blushing Bronzed Duet in Traviata – the duo doubles as a bronzer and blush in one chic compact. Lightly apply across cheeks, nose and forehead for a sun kissed, sure to get noticed glow.
Make eyes pop! Using Dualistic Eye Pencil in Tamarack, smudge the water-based liner over lids for a quick, simple smoky eye. Complete the look with Precisions Liquid Liner across the top of lash line and a few swipes of Anamorphic Lash Mascara over lashes to open and define eyes.
Pucker up! Pull-It together with a perfect pout – it’s all about the lips ladies. Balance out a smoky eye with an opaque, nude pucker. Lip Crème Lip Gloss in Vanilla Rose combines lipstick and lip-gloss in one for a high shine, high gloss lippy look.
Don’t forget you can schedule a One-on-One makeup tutorial with Richard Marquez with any two item purchase of Le Metier de Beaute.
