Heat things up with shades of cayenne for spring! Warm up with COLORME in Ginger (a rosy red brown) and COLORDUO. For COLORDUO, be sure to apply the rouge side first and nude on top for a matte lip! As for COLORESSENTIAL, we love Shanghai with a Nude pencil on top for a softer look. For the eyes, shop COLOREYEDEFINE in smoky quartz/pink quarts – the perfect desert shades.
Top off your look with a bit of COLORFLO Shimmer, the quickest way to take your makeup into spring. Use COLORFLO Shimmer as an eye shadow as well as to highlight cheekbones, shoulders, and décolletage. Use a white pencil like COLOREYEDEFINE in platinum under the bottom lashes and on the water line. This is very on-trend and makes your eyes look BIG and BRIGHT!

Warm up with some ginger and coral colors for spring. A golden glow can’t come soon enough! We are loving COLORME in Lotus, COLORESSENTIAL in Boca, and our Bronzer Liner and Copper Shadow in COLOREYEDEFINE. We’re ready for that beach glow .. NOW.
My favorite place to be is on the beach and it is a cruel twist of fate that I have been addressing skin cancer issues for the last 15 years. Fortunately, because of nature and science, today I can once again be by the sea with caution, but without fear. For that sun-kissed skin, I reach for my Susan Posnick COLORFLO Foundation and Bronzer, so I look like I belong. COLORFLO provides natural water-resistant dry sun protection in a self-dispensing brush, so I can apply it throughout the day.
My neck, décolletage, hands and legs get BRUSH ON BLOCK – providing me with invisible water-resistant sun protection. On my head, is a wide brimmed hat with an SPF 50 coating and I’m wearing one of the many great styles from Sunkissed Girls sun protection clothing.
Okay, so I’m not in an itsy, bitsy bikini anymore, but I probably shouldn’t be anyway!

We’re all about finding the perfect Valentine’s Day RED this month! Susan has a few tips to share on how you can find the perfect red:
1. For Olive Skin: Olive skin tones are the most versatile with regard to wearing different shades. When it comes to reds however, you should stick to and rich, red shades and bronze reds. My COLORESSENTIAL lipsticks in Paris and London are the perfect shades for you.
2. For Medium Skin: If you have a medium skin tone, stick with red-berry shades and brick reds. COLORESSENTIAL in Milan is the perfect modern red.
3. For Dark Skin: If you have dark skin, you want to use rich, vibrant colors. Think reds with a hint of plum, burgundy, fuchsia, and tangerine. COLORESSENTIAL in Tokyo or Rio are perfect.
Everyone can wear a classic French red, like Susan Posnick COLORESSENTIAL in Paris. Simply dot it on and blend with your fingertip. It works as a lip tint (think bee stung lips) or you can go full on red. Another option for a brighter red is to blend a red lip pencil with your red lipstick for an intense, rich red that lasts. Apply the Rouge side of the COLORDUO lip pencil.

Susan Posnick Cosmetics event at the SETAI Sports Club & Spa: January 21, 2014. Great turnout although I almost didn’t get there because of the snowstorm!
Last week, I arrived in NYC the day before the UNEXPECTED snowstorm hit. Hence, my first stop was to buy snow boots as I knew I’d be all over the city and I’d need to keep my feet warm and dry! I had breakfast and lunch meetings with editors from Lucky magazine, Elle, DailyGlow.com, and more. And, of course, I ate my way through the city………
New Yorkers are amazing- very little keeps them down and I only had one meeting that was canceled!
On Tuesday and Wednesday evening, I had two events: The Setai and at Equinox – both were successful! Neither snow, nor sleet, nor hail will keep women away from makeup!
I was able to enjoy late evenings by the fire at the Greenwich Hotel – devouring the sheep’s milk ricotta that’s brought in from Italy every few days (for those foodies).
NYC event at Equinox 74th & 2nd: January 22,2014/ Women were getting makeovers with their coats on, as the heat was out- Brrrrrr…….
Both events were very successful. The women loved the simplicity of Susan Posnick.
Until next time,
Yes, it’s cold outside, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use a bit of color for a pick-me-up. With our COLORFLO Shimmer and a warm shade of COLORME paired with a COLORESSENTIAL lipstick in Boca, Miami, or South Beach, you’ll be thinking about the warmth of the beach in no time. Even if you skip the shimmer and blush, a bright lipstick can give even the dullest winter a skin a lift and bit of glow. The biggest issue you’ll have, is choosing just one color! Shop them here.
AN INSTANT LIFT: one of our favorite beauty tips here at Susan Posnick Cosmetics is using EGG WHITES to tighten skin. Yes, they really work! For a quick at-home remedy, apply an egg whites to the face for instant tightening. You can apply it under the eyes as well. Use it under your favorite moisturizer at night and wake up to beautiful skin.

Susan shared these winter makeup tips with glamour magazine:
Holiday Beauty: Swap Bold Neutrals for Pops of Color
“Coral lip colors are just as appropriate for the holidays as the beach if you pair them with the right dress and jewel-tone eyeliner. Take a turquoise, emerald, or amethyst liner under the bottom lashes and extend it out and up,” says celebrity makeup artist Susan Posnick. Keep the lid matte, so you get just that pop of color. “It goes great with a black dress—and lots of mascara, of course.”
