Lovely in London


Our first Spring 2012 look,  Lovely in London, takes its cue from the luminous, flushed complexions seen all over the spring runways.

This classic look enhances your natural beauty in a very fresh way. It evokes the elegant, modern simplicity of Kate Middleton.

Louis Vuitton, Versace (see right), Tracy Reese, Viktor & Rolf,  and Elie Saab all showed varying versions of this ethereal, feminine look.

Lovely in London  begins with radiant skin and rosy flushed cheeks, and combines soft glowing eyes

with a rosebud lip.

For this look, begin by lining the top lash line with Suede pencil ($13).

Blend out slightly with a Squirrel Precision Blender ($23), and top with Champagne shadow ($15).

Add a little depth to the crease with Caramel shadow ($15) and a Squirrel Mini Crease brush ($25).

Using the same brush, highlight the brow bone with Sheer Sand ($15).

For a natural-looking flush, smile and apply Beauty for Real cream cheek color in “In the Pink” to the

apples of the cheeks in a circular motion.

Use the coordinating highlight color, “Get Lit”, along the tops of the cheekbones, above the arch of

your brow, and in the inner corners of the eye. (Beauty forReal Cream Cheek and Highlight Duo- $29)

On the lips, apply Berry lip stain ($19.50) along the lips, concentrating the color on the center of the lips to give the “eating a popsicle”

effect. For a little shine, add a touch of Love Potion #9 gloss ($16.50).
