Ode to Earth: Makeup inspired by Nature
Traveling is always a pleasure but even more so when it is for leisure!
After a few weeks of busy schedules I took a few days off to visit my cousin and her family in her farm located in the heart of the mountains in Antioquia Colombia.
It is a beautiful cottage surrounded by green pastures, a small stream runs through it and birds never stop singing. She has a magnificent view and a hammock or "Hamaca" that invites you to lay back with a great book and forget about the rest of the word for a while.
I always travel with my favorite makeup products from Artistry and could not have found a better scenario to play with the new shades and colors from the spring collection, especially the Eye Shadow Palette in brown and earthy tones that can be worn in broad daylight or in the evening with a little more drama.
My niece Amalia was the photographer in charge of this shoot and she did an amazing job! Gracias Bella!
I started step by step to mix the eyeshadow tones to create a dark and smokey eye, which I enhanced with a little bit of black eyeliner pencil on the upper and lower lash line.
The final touch was of course mascara and Artistry has a fabulous option to define and lengthen your lashes.
Since the eyes had a lot of color the lips were soft in one of my favorite pink shades from the new Lip Color Creme Collection. The name is called "Delicate" and could not be more perfect. I always start by defining the lips with lip liner in a neutral shade and then proceed to apply the lipstick. This technique prevents the color form bleeding and gives you a perfect pout.
Lip color Creme en Delicate. $17.00
Last but never least a beautiful new blush to enhance the cheeks and get a special glow that nature in these amazing places gives you just after a stroll in the mountains. This palette has two beautiful tones blended together and it only takes a couple of strokes with a thick brush to create a lovely complexion.
Cheek Color Dúo in Sunrise. $35.00
So there it is! Glamorous and yet natural. What a treat!
