Aveda Makeup: Bronzed Beauty with a Twist

Bronzed Beauty with A Twist

Another look using my Aveda 2014 Spring/Summer Makeup Collection.
This look uses the same colors you saw in my previous post : Bronzed Beauty .  Check it out if you haven't already.

I applied the Peony Blush and the Burnished Bronze the same as in my other look. 

Then with the Olive Leaf, instead of applying it just in the crease, I extended it out to make a V in the outer corner of my eye.  

After blending that in, I applied my eyeliner as usual, but extended it out to create a winged look.

Eye Shadow - Aveda Petal Essence Single Eye Color 
                       CultureClash Collection
                                 Burnished Bronze
                                 Peony Blush
                                 Olive Leaf
Highlight - Mac Prep and Prime Highlighter in Light Boost
Concealer - Aveda Inner Light Concealer 02 Balsa
Foundation - Aveda Inner Light Mineral Dual Foundation in 04 Honey
Contour - Hoolah by Benefit

2014 Spring Aveda Makeup: Bronzed Beauty

Hey guys!!

I have been experimenting with the Aveda 2014 spring/summer collection a lot lately. I LOVE IT!




I am especially loving the Burnished Bronze, Olive Leaf and Peony Blush Shadows together! It has become one of my everyday looks.  

The great thing about these shadows together is that it compliments all skin tones and eye colors.




To achieve this look you will first apply your eye primer.



I like to use the Aveda Concealer as my eyeshadow primer.


Apply Peony Blush to your brow bone



Next, apply Burnished Bronze on entire eye lid, in the crease and then blended up into the Peony Blush.  

Also apply this color to your lower lash line.


Then, in the crease, apply Olive Leaf and Blend


Blend Blend Blend.  Blending is very important.  You do not want lines.


I like to line my upper and lower lash lines with brown liner and black waterproof mascara to my lashes when doing this look.




TIP: For aged skin, be careful of dark shadows or liners under the eye. 



What I am Wearing:
Eye Shadow - Aveda Petal Essence Single Eye Color 
                       CultureClash Collection
                                 Burnished Bronze
                                 Peony Blush
                                 Olive Leaf
Highlight - Mac Prep and Prime Highlighter in Light Boost
Concealer - Aveda Inner Light Concealer 02 Balsa
Foundation - Aveda Inner Light Mineral Dual Foundation in 04 Honey
Contour - Hoolah by Benefit
Blush - Aveda Petal Essence Face Accent Peach Lights
Lips - Nourish-mint Rehydrating Lip Glaze in color Rose Copper
Eyeliner - Aveda Petal Essence Eye Definer in the color Cacao
Mascara - Aveda Mosscara in the color Black Forest

Hair Makeover: Goodbye Ombré

PURPLE HAIR CAN BE BEAUTIFUL

I had a young girl come in the other day that wanted hair color similar to this . . . 
She has naturally dark brown hair and on her ends was previous bleaching and coloring from about a year ago.  From questions I asked her, this is what info I gathered:
  1. BOX COLOR ON HAIR BEFORE
  2. FRIZZY CURLY DRY AND ENDS DAMAGED
  3. YOUNG STUDENT
  4. GETS HAIR DONE ONCE OR TWICE A YEAR

To this I responded, "In my Professional Opinion, I would recommend that we look at other options because this color:
  1. REQUIRES BLEACHING
  2. COLOR FADES QUICKLY
  3. POSSIBILITY OF INCONSISTENCY
  4. DRY HAIR
  5. DAMAGED HAIR
  6. HIGH MAINTENANCE

She took my advice and we looked at her options.  We found a color that was a Dark Violet/Red that didn't require us to bleach her hair. The pros to this color are:
  1. SHINE
  2. CONSISTENCY ROOTS TO ENDS
  3. RICH COLOR
  4. 4-6 WEEKS MAINTENANCE 
  5. CLOSE TO NATURAL GROW OUT

Always know that color requires maintenance.  You deserve to look your best every day!  As a stylist, I do not want my guests to have a bad hair day!  It is important that you know the maintenance of the color or cut you choose and always book your appointment ahead of time. 

So here she is . . .
