Spring Collection from Paul & Joe Beaute
The new Spring Collection from Paul & Joe Beaute is full of shimmer and shine. These dual-colored shadows our some of our current favorites. They're packed with good ingredients like Lilium candidum (White lily) extract, which moisturizes and prevents skin irritation, and orange flow water, jojoba oil and hyaluronic acid (Sodium hyaluronate) which keep your skin soft. That's no small thing. You know how delicate the skin on your eyelid is.
They come in five duos and the colors are gorgeous. Now, one thing to note is that they're very sheer. You're not going to get a ton of pigment here. That's a good thing. Unless you're fifteen or Lady Gaga, you probably don't want to look like a disco ball. Take a shadow brush that is on the stiffer side and get a little product on it. Tap onto bare eyelids or on top of other shadow. Keep the shimmer on the lid itself. The brow bone can use a highlighter, but shimmer makes you look oh, so very 1997. (In fact, we recommend using a lighter concealer on the brow bone to brighten but not overwhelm the eye.)
Anti.Gravity Oil Free Volumiser
And now that hair tip we mentioned. This one comes to us from master stylist Kevin Murphy. He makes a great product (that smells divine) called Anti.Gravity Oil Free Volumiser. It gives great volume in general, but he has another use for it. Put some in the hair and blow dry. Take a shimmer eyeshadow (like the Paul & Joe collection) and apply to the hair. The Anti.Gravity works as an adhesive. You can do the whole head, you can just do a small section in the front for effect or strands all over the hair. Talk about super summer shimmer!
The Paul & Joe Beaute Spring Collection is available at b-glowing.com and retails for $22 each.
