Happy Sunday, all! Let’s keep my new style conversation going with Style Refresh 2021: New Makeup Update!
While in a Zoom meeting with Annie of CASTANOHEL, she told me that now I know I am a VIBRANT AUTUMN, I also need to warm up my makeup colors.
That meant revisiting blush, eyeshadow, mascara, brows, eyeliner and, of course, lips…so glad to have them back!
Honestly, I had never considered my makeup as part of my overall color story…but I now see the reasons for it. I was living as a WINTER and wearing cooler shades…not me!
Annie loves Jane Iredale makeup and so do I, but with a new direction I wanted to see, touch and experience the makeup. Sadly, Jane Iredale is now offered online at Ulta, Nordstrom and Soft Surroundings.
That did not work for me for this moment. I do not see me shopping online only makeup!
But, of course, my friends at Dillard’s in The Shops of La Cantera said...”Come on down and let’s have some fun at the Lancome counter”...as a result, I left with a new appreciation for this brand!
It makes so much difference when dealing with makeup to have expert assistance.
I began with a good cleaning and actually purchased the Jumbo Lait Galatee Confort Cleanser. I went to the store makeup free with what I thought was a clean face.
It is embarrassing that their cotton proved otherwise. Since I have been using this cleanser and the at home, I can tell a lovely difference in my complexion! So far it has been worth the purchase!
They allowed me to try several skincare products before we actually got to talking makeup and it is always fun to learn about new products…I was impressed with these:
Absolue Precious Cells Nourishing Lip Balm. (AMAZING)
After skincare pampering complete with an awesome neck massage, they brought out the makeup selected for my warm palette!
I learned so much about how it truly does make a difference to select makeup within your wardrobe color palette. The beauty technician, Sarah, showed me colors I never would have selected for me previously.
I always learn tricks when I come to the counter and Sarah shared several. Here are the products we used for this makeover session:
Blush Subtil Delicate Oil-Free Powder Blush (My color is called Absolutely Happy – perfect for me!)
Star Bronzer Long Lasting Bronzing Powder Natural Glow. (My color is Lumiere)
Dual Finish Highlighter (Shimmering Buff)
Limited Edition L’Absolu Rouge Ruby Cream Lipstick. (My color is called Kiss Me Ruby and it won’t be around long!)
EYE AND BROW
Color Design Eye Brightening All-In-One 5 Shadow & Liner Palette (My palette is Terre De Sienne)
Le Stylo Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner. (My color is L’auberege Rose.. because my hazel eyes still love a little purple)
Definicils High Definition Mascara. (color: Deep Brown)
Brow Shaping Powdery Pencil. (Color: Chestnut). I loved how Sarah taught me with this product so much that I purchased it as well. I am enjoying doing my brows with it)
MAKEUP UPDATE LESSONS
Once again…be teachable. I never would have selected that eyeshadow palette, but I love it and it is on my wish list.
I like to makeup my eyes a little more because I wear glasses and the way she taught me with this palette just made my hazel eyes shine!
For those who think makeup should be cool colors in the summer, I have discovered that no matter the season I want to look my absolute best...and if that means my autumn colors in summer months, so be it!
I do not typically wear foundation in the summer and I am going without it more and more, but I do see the benefit of getting my warmer colors right for everything else.
I also have learned to wear my deeper, warmer lip colors all of the time….again, why look washed out simply because it is summer.
My new style is vibrant…out loud…and I will continue to experiment with makeup colors going forward…and I will be dreaming of that Terre De Sienne eyeshadow palette.
MORE NEWS FOR ME! I changed out my new lenses! No more purple/blue eyes!
Thanks to Sheri, Laurie and Sarah at Dillard’s at the Shops of La Cantera. Your Lancome session was so helpful to me at this time when I am changing…everything about my style.
I highly recommend you go see them if you are in San Antonio!!
Thanks so much for being here…I hope we are all learning new things together…I have more for you this week! Now, go out and………….
