In June, we ran a contest asking our partners to send us their best look featuring makeup from the Cool Beauty Collection. We got many fabulous photos, all of which are posted on our Facebook fan page. We were thrilled by the diversity of the entries, showing how many totally different looks can be achieved with these products; and also how creative people can get with our makeup! It was very difficult to choose, but finally the top three picks were made by Jane and our team of National Makeup Artist/Educators.
First Place went to Camillia Rodio of Vancouver Washington:
To create this dramatic look, Camillia used Absence Oil Control Primer followed by PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation in Bisque. On the eyes she used the Azure PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple with the aqua hue on the eye lid and underneath rounding the corners of the eyes, and 24-Karat Gold Dust in Aquamarine. Parfait PurePressed Blush flushed the cheeks. For the lips she used Erin PureMoist Lipstick topped with Cosmo PureGloss Lip Gloss.
Second place went to Larissa Keeney of the Sandpearl Resort & Spa in Clearwater Florida.
To achieve this soft and vibrant look, Larissa primed her model Danielle’s face with Absence Oil Control Primer 2, then applied Liquid Minerals A Foundation in Coffee, and Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder in Caramel. She finished the face with PureMatte Finish Powder and a spritz of D20 Hydration Spray. To conceal any imperfections, she applied Disappear Concealer in both Medium and Dark. On the Cheeks, Larissa applied PurePressed Blush in Dubonnet. For this incredible eye look, Larissa primed the lids with Canvas Lid Primer, then applied the PurePressed Triple Eye Shadow in Azure. To line the eyes, she used Liquid Eyeliner in Pinot Noir. Finishing touches included PureLash Lash Extender & Conditioner and Black Ice Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara on the eyes, and the brows were groomed with Smoky Grey PurePressed Eye Shadow and Brown/Black Eye Pencil. The lips were prepped with Sugar & Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper, defined with Taupe Lip Pencil, colored with PureMoist Lipstick in Julia, and kissed with PureGloss Lip Gloss in Just Gloss.
Third place went to Linda Allen of L A Skincare in Greensboro, NC.
Her model (and daughter-in-law) Ginger’s luminous look was created starting with Golden Glow Liquid Minerals and Amazing Base applied to the face and neck. Her cheeks are glowing with PurePressed Blush in Whisper and a touch of Bronzer mixed together, then Moonglow Quad Bronzer on the jaw line. To prep the eyes, Linda started with Canvas Lid Primer on the eyelids. She then applied Azure to the upper lids, and Pinot Noir Liquid Eyeliner to upper eyelid; and finished with two coats of Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara in Black Ice. The brows were beautifully shaped with Brunette Super Shape Me Eyebrow Kit. Ginger’s lips were lined with Nude Lip Pencil, Julia PureMoist Lipstick and Just Gloss PureGloss Lip Gloss. As a finishing touch, Aquamarine 24-Karat Gold Dust was dusted in the hair and on the dÃ©colletÃ©.
