Most days, make-up is a mystery to me. I’ve managed to master the most basic of basics, a bit of mascara, a good tinted moisturizer and the power of a red lipstick!
Neil Scibelli, Jouer National Makeup Stylist created what he described as,
“inspired by Kate Spade’s hometown, New York City, during the ‘70s when Andy Warhol’s Factory and Studio 54 epitomized “party glamour. The classic cat eye and red lip compliment the collection’s vivid color palette of NYC Citron, Empire Beige, Asphalt, Maraschino, Shocking Pink and Disco Purple.”
Luckily, we got the scoop on how Neil put the look together!
To begin, he used Jouer Matte Moisture Tint to create a clean and matte base for the skin, using Jouer Age-Repairing Concealer where needed. Brows were kept clean and groomed. I loved the little jewel on each of those killer pink nails.
For the eyes he used Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Crème as an all over base, applying Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Amaretto in the crease. He thickly lined the eyes with Jouer Liquid Shimmer Liner in Panther, extending and winging out. He finished with Jouer Everyday Classic Wear Mascara.
For blush, he applied Jouer Tint in Honeysuckle on the apples of cheeks, blending outwards for a subtle pop of color. To finish the look he used a beautiful true red lip, Jouer’s Hydrating Lipstick in Simone, topped with Jouer’s Essential Lip Enhancer for extra shine.
Now I know a lot of skill went into the application, but this sounds like something simple enough that even I could try at home. I’ve long known the magic of the Jouer Matte Moisture Tint. It’s pretty much the best thing ever. Now I’ve just got to get brave with my eyeliner skills!
