Party Makeup 2 – Champagne Dreams

Party season is in full swing. You wouldn’t wear the same dress twice, would you wear the same makeup? Here’s a long-wearing, surprisingly fresh and shimmering look to take you right through New Year’s Eve.

  • Begin with flawless foundation and a good flush to the cheeks. if you need a reminder, refer back to Holiday Makeup Part 1.
  • Apply a small amount Champagne Silk Eye Gloss to the entire lid, lash line to brow. Blend well with the ring finger. Allow to dry for a few seconds.
  • Use the Eye Contour Brush to apply Champagne PurePressed Eye Shadow into the crease, using a windshield wiper motion.
  • With the Small Fluff Brush, apply Taupe PurePressed Eyeshadow to the outer corner of the eye, wrapping it around under the lower lashes.
  • Create a color wash with Champagne 24-Karat Gold Dust: tap some into the lid and spritz with your favorite Hydration Spray. Use your finger or the Deluxe Shader Brush to press it into the entire eyelid. Use the Detail Brush to tightly line the lower lash line, being sure to keep some of the Taupe visible.
  • Tight-line the upper lash line with Basic Brown Eye Pencil. You may wish to use the Detail Brush (I always do!) to really wiggle the color into the lash line. This shouldn’t really show as “eyeliner” but rather as definition. Keep it tight to the lashes and soft.
  • Add shimmer anywhere you want by applying 24-Karat Gold Dust dry, with a White Fan Brush. Places to consider are the cheek bones, brow bones, collar bones, earlobes, etc.
  • Finish with a coat of PureLash Lash Extender & Conditioner on top and bottom lashes; then several coats of Jet Black PureLash Lengthening Mascara.
  • Complete your look with Mimosa PureGloss Lip Gloss. For added pout, dab 24-Karat Gold Dust in the center of the bottom lip.

Have a wonderful holiday and a GORGEOUS New Year!

  1. Hi Jennifer,  Thanks, that’s great. You can subscribe by entering your email address in the field at the top right of the page.   Happy New Year!

  2. I am not really sure if this is the correct place to write a reveiw or not, but I would like to say that I love my eyeshadow palette that I purchased and I cannot wait to try new products.

  3. Hi Debbie,  There are many wonderful skin care lines out there, and we here use a variety of them. Therefore we do not endorse any specific one. Jane will never tell us what she uses! Read the labels carefully and educate yourself about ingredients, or ask a trusted professional or friend. I am sorry I couldn’t be of more help.  Cheers!   Posted @ Wednesday, January 19, 2011 7:39 AM

  4. I am using mineral foundation. I am    diabetic and have dry skin. Am finding this foundation is drying    also. I have tried the “beads” and    need more coverage. What do you    suggest? Thanks

  5. Hi Peggy,    I am sorry your skin is feeling extra dry! Perhaps there might be other factors such as winter weather, a change in diet and/or other products, that are impacting your skin. With that in mind, I have some recommendations for you:    1. Use the Liquid Minerals (beads) first, then your mineral foundation on top for added coverage and SPF. Remember, the Liquid Minerals does not have SPF.    2. Remember your hydration spray! You can use it throughout the day to rehydrate.    3. If you like, try our Dream Tint tinted moisturizer under your mineral foundation instead of Liquid Minerals. It is nicely moisturizing, but sheer so you will probably still want additional coverage with the powders.    Good luck and please let me know how it works out for you!
