Before I even started flipping through the pages of July’s Essence magazine, I was mesmerized by the issue’s cover girl: the beautiful Jada Pinkett Smith. Jada’s makeup looks absolutely flawless and it’s a great day & night look. Her immaculate complexion & lightly glossed lips really make her indigo cat-eyes pop right off the page. I’ll admit blue liner is not something I would typically reach for, but this oceanic hue is a hot summer trend that brightens the white’s of your eyes on a whole new level! It’s actually super simple to replicate with a cream liner. My fave is tarte’s emphasEYES™ clay shadow/liner in indigo (Essence gave its nod of approval as well, because it’s featured in plum on page 30 of this issue!); it even comes with the appropriate brush for the perfect application!
At the NYC premiere of Keri Russell’s new flick “Leaves of Grass”, Tina Turnbow (makeup artist to the stars) gave her a natural beauty look. What’s even better is that all the products Tina selected give back to the environment. I love that Tina chose natural products from Envision Beauty and tarte; both companies use nature and science to achieve flawless results & each remain socially conscious by contributing proceeds to eco-friendly charities. That being said I thought it was only fair that we treat you to a “spring glow” giveaway. With these products and the guideline below, you’ll be able to recreate this youthful look at home!
Tina prepped Keri’s skin with The Solution by Envision Beauty. Why we love it? Like tarte goodies, The Solution is packed with antioxidants like goji and acai berries, as well as vitamins A, C, E and B5, leaving skin hydrated and smooth. This paraben-free facial moisturizer evened Keri’s skin tone for the perfect makeup application.
For a healthy complexion, Tina turned to tarte’s fuss-free products, “I used a tinted moisturizer and created a peachy-pink cheek.” Tarte’s natural cheek stain in tipsy touts our t5 super fruit complex™ — a proprietary blend of the five most active superfruits: goji, acai, maracuja, acerola and pomegranate! She used her own Tina Turnbow for tarte limited-edition flower child palette for a soft, smoky charcoal eye. Her final touches included voluminous lashes & a nude lip with a hint of sheen.
