Beauty Happy Hour: My Favorite Looks From The Spring 2014 Face Charts

As a little girl I was always obsessed with sketching face charts and creating makeup looks for myself. I'm still a big fan of face charts in looking at beautiful ones created by other talented and professional makeup artists. During Fashion Week, Key Makeup Artists will meet with the designers to create makeup looks for their new collections. Majority of the fashionista who attend fashion week enjoy going to the shows to preview their favorite designers newest collections. My favorite spot is being backstage watching the Key Makeup Artists teaching their teams the gorgeous makeup look. Here are are 3 of my favorite makeup looks that was created this spring, I'm sure you will be obsessed as well.

Romantic Date Night
Face Chart Created By Target’s makeup maven Sonia Kashuk
1. Apply Perfecting Luminous Foundation with a damp blending sponge for a radiant, even complexion.
2. With the Chic Luminosity Bronzer/Blush Duo in Glisten, apply bronzer for tone and blush for brightness
3. Using the Eye Couture in Eye On Neutral Shimmer, sweep shade seven all over the lid to just beyond the crease, followed by shade six just below the crease blending color seamlessly. Take a small eye shadow brush and pack on shade 10 along the upper lash line, blending out. Using a shader brush place shade 12 directly at the upper lash line, extending the line slightly up at the outer corner. Continue down the lower lash line, keeping color light and smudged.
4. Give your eyes that shut-down stare with Full Drama Eyelashes.
5. Color in lips with Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Pinky Nude for kissable color that stays put. If you prefer shine, top with a bit of Ultra Luxe Lip Gloss in Prettiest Pink.
6. Mist on some Pink Innocencia Eau de Toilette for a delicately feminine scent.

The Lulu Frost Spring 2014 Collection

Skin: Hydrating Face Cream, Long-Wear Even Finish Compact Foundation
Eyes: White Eye, Bone Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow, Everything Mascara

Face Chart Created By TEMPTU Key Makeup Artist Michelle Cameau
Step 1: Foundation
Use TEMPTU PRO S/B Foundation to create a dewy yet satiny base.
Step 2: Concealer
To create highlights in the face, pick a light shade from the TEMPTU PRO S/B Concealer Wheel, and pat under the eyes, on the forehead, on the chin, and along the bridge of the nose.
PRO TIP: Contour and slim the face using the darkest shade of the Concealer Wheel.
Step 3: Eyes
Contour the crease with a soft brown shadow, then line under the eyes with TEMPTU PRO S/B Highlighter in Silver Shimmer. Extend the line for a sultry cat eye!
Finish off with two coats of black mascara.
PRO TIP: Create a natural full brow by dipping a slanted brush in TEMPTU PRO S/B Airbrow, then lightly feathering.
Step 4: Cheeks
Airbrush the apples of the cheeks with TEMPTU PRO S/B Blush in Apricot for a subtle tint that mimics a beachy glow.
Step 5: Lips
Airbrush TEMPTU PRO S/B Blush in Ruby Red over the lips. Use bare fingers or a lip brush to tap TEMPTU PRO S/B Blush in Raspberry on the center of the top and bottom lips, creating an ombre effect.
Step 6: Set
Seal the makeup with TEMPTU PRO Invisible Difference Powder in Banane.
