Light Up My Life – Laura Mercier “Guava” Eye Shadow

I had a photo shoot the other day and was looking to pick up a few tips from the make up artist, Dorys Foltin of Maleana Cosmetics.

I had already been searching for a light natural almost skin color eye shadow to use as a base-and watching the makeup artist apply light colors to the lids of my talent, I was very impressed by how much it brightened the whole eye area.

Much more exciting for me because I got the current NM beauty bag by purchasing Laura Mercier’s eye shadow stipling brush, guava eye shadow and the new Kiehl’s fragrance in Orange and Lychee.

The color looks so beautiful under the store lights and on my lids – it really looks darker here- but when I put it on my lids without primer-it almost matches my skin but somehow makes it look brighter and my eyes don’t recede as much! ¬†(Loving the stipling brush too!)

I love a natural look for day – some radiant primer, tinted moisturizer, guava shadow and a chocolate-ly eyeliner!

I spoke to LM’s Global Make Up artist Luis Soto about the current trend of Cinema Noir-you remember those gorgeous black and white photos of the film stars before “talkies”.

I love that LM has added videos too!  Check them out on their youtube channel!
