LookBook – Pretty & Sophisticated

There’s just something about the simplicity of brown eyes and pink red lips that screams youthful sophistication.

Take Jennifer Lawrence at the Critics Choice Awards in January:

or Rachel Bilson, whose make up is so deceptively simple –

Rachel Bilson keeps it simple…..and stunning

This is such a simple look that flatters all eye colours, and Leah, the Clarins Beauty Consultant at our Redmond Square store put together this LookBook with products from this years Clarins range.

Clarins LookBook 2013

Skin is kept simple and flawless with Ever Matte Powder in 02 Transparent Medium used to achieve a natural, clean look, with a sweep of pinky coral blush used to give a healthy, sweet glow.

The eye look is achieved by using Eye Quartet Mineral Palette in 02 Nudes.  This is one of Clarins most popular eye palettes with four very wearable shades, a neutral cream, a fawn brown, darker brown and an iridescent pink.

To get the look above, start by sweeping the neutral colour over the lid and up to the brow.  Next cover the lid in the pink and finally use the darker brown in the crease and corners of the eyelid, and along the upper lash line.  (One really plus point about the Clarins Mineral Quartet is that it comes with both a round edged and a pointed shadow applicator – allowing for really precise application of your eyeshadow – (sometimes the simplest ideas really are the best!)

Check out that pointed applicator!!

Rouge Eclat in 02 Sweet Rose is used to keep lips kissably pink, though this lip look can be toned down for daytime by using a simple slick of gloss or a neutral pink shade.

This is a look that suits everyone, and one which never goes out of style….what more could you ask for!
