Life has been busy for my friend JoJami and I. JoJami has been traveling the U.S. with her husband in their motor coach, while my husband and I just moved into the dream home we’ve been building for over two years.
These days it’s a real treat to be able to get out for a date night and to dress up a little but Mary Kay gave us good reason to do so. After sending two big boxes of their newest products, JoJami and I decided to have some fun and test out a new Mary Kay makeup look to wear on an evening out. Here’s how we did our make-up and what we wore.
JoJami: My special night was in Montana at the famous Chico Hot Springs Inn. I chose a pair of dark-wash jeans and a colorful leather jacket to hit the town.The gorgeous mineral based eye shadows in espresso and hazelnut were just perfect to coordinate with my muted orange coat. I dusted my cheeks with the cider and then finished off the look with their pink luster lip gloss.
Deborah: My special evening was a cozy Italian dinner and the movies here where I live, here in Burlington, Ontario. I chose a sexy red leopard sweater and skinny black pants.
Like JoJami, I opted for the hazelnut shadow on my entire eye with some espresso in the crease, but I also threw in some honey spice just under my brow for a more dramatic look. Then I used black eyeliner, (which I love because it went on so fine), and the fabulous Lash Loves mascara to plump thing up. Next came the Shy Blush, a mouth-watering shimmery peach color.
Finally, I added a red lip. Whoa! I hadn’t worn red lips since the late 80’s. It was scary when I first put red on, too overpowering, so I toned it down. I blotted, added some pink luster lip gloss and liked it! It was a fun change to have your lips as the focus. I felt very sexy.
I have to say that the Mary Kay mascara is one of the best I have ever used. The brush just grabs your lashes and coats them perfectly without globbing.Also, I have talked with many of my girlfriends, and I’m always surprised when many of them admit that they don’t know how to use a makeup brush. The Mary Kay makeup brush line is wonderful because the brushes are easy to hold, and they are labeled so you know which one to use for what.
Overall, I just thought the makeup went on beautifully, and the colors and quality of the products were great.
JoJami: Yes, me too. Nothing like fresh new makeup to make you feel like a Glam Gal!
