FALL DEEPLY IN LOVE

FALL DEEPLY IN LOVE

Whether it’s Bordeaux, Marsala, Cinnabar, or Merlot, it’s the rich deep maroons and berries that you’ll want to be wearing on your lips, your clothes and even your eyes this season.

How to wear them? It’s easy with Susan Posnick.

Lips: Make Milan or London your COLORESSENTIAL lipstick. Be bold with it. Line with COLORDUO in rouge.

Take the trend one step further and ombré your lips to make them look even fuller. Apply Milan or London to the outside of the lips and fill in with Rio or COLORDUO in Rouge.

With lips the focus, keep the rest of your makeup soft. Think of a soft mauve (Lilly) or a gentle flush of color (Orchid) on the cheek. Dust an extra layer of COLORFLO over top so the color looks like it comes from the inside.

Eyes: mossy or olive greens like our COLOREYEDEFINE in Jasper. Define the eyes with Jasper as your liner on upper & lower lashes, use the Sandstone shadow over the whole lid for a soft, neutral shimmer.

Want to bump up the look for nighttime? Sweep COLORME Orchid onto the lid as well.As always, a simple, effortless, foolproof way to shift into fall color.

THE POWER OF WOMEN

THE POWER OF WOMEN

It’s all about women this month — August 1 was Girlfriend’s Day, August 3 was Sisters Day, August 4 is Working Women’s Day and August 26 is Women’s Equality Day. There’s no doubt that August is dedicated to the power of women and the relationships we cultivate, in and out of the workroom. We’re taking a moment to honor our closest friends and female family members because without them we wouldn’t be who we are. They are our rocks. They are always by our side. Wherever we are these important women are a part of us. Think best friends and dynamic duo Amy Pohler and Tina Fey, it’s hard to think of one without the other.

It’s also difficult to imagine a world where women were not accepted as equal. Today, women are accepted as powerful figures, matriarchs of society, and are among the leading political leaders and business people in the world. When we were given the right to vote August 26, 1920, women were given a voice and were no longer going to be stopped at the voting booth.

Some of the most powerful women in history include first ladies, writers, fashion designers, doctors, singers, actresses, models and business owners. Think Marie Curie, Coco Chanel Jackie O, Sandra Bullock, Diana Vreeland, Rosa Parks and J.K. Rowling. But it’s not just the work these women did that we appreciate so much. These women lead the way for young girls to create their own path of success. Very much like our grandmothers, mothers, daughters and sisters, they are living inspirations.

Think of your closest friend, your daughter, or your mom and take a moment to appreciate how much they have enriched your lives. Be grateful for your life, for the ability to shape your own path and for just being able to be you. Cheers to August! Cheers to girl power!

We love this look: Lily Aldridge

01-lily-aldridge_121243213189.jpg_gallery_max

 

We loved this image Vogue.com recently published of the beautiful Lily Aldridge.  This look is clean, simple, and fresh – perfect for spring!  It’s also an excellent way to emanate the “summer nude” look for a fresh faced summer glow. How can one make this look their own?  Susan has shared the perfect essentials to recreate this beauty look.

Bare it for Spring and Summer:

COLORFLO: try M8 for an all-over Golden Bronze Glow

COLORFLO BRONZER: At the base of  the cheekbone, use this bronzer as a blush and sweep it across nose and onto the temples to add dimension to the face.  Use the bronzer as an eyeshadow as well and brush it across the upper lid from the inside corner to the outside corner, focusing on the base of the brow bone.

COLOREYEDEFINE: dot COLOREYEDEFINE Jet liner on to the upper and lower lashes.  Apply Moonstone shadow to the inside 1/3 of the upper lid – as close to the lash line as possible.

COLORDUO: Dot the COLORDUO lip pencil in nude on to the lips and blend it with your finger.

COLORESSENTIAL: layer the COLORESSENTIAL lipstick in Dubai on the top.

Miranda Kerr – Spring Awakening

One of our favorite beauty looks this week was of Miranda Kerr shared by Vogue.com.  Doesn’t this look just sing spring awakening? Kerr’s cheeks bloom and glow with a perfect pink flush and shine. We can’t get enough of the shiny lips and lush lashes. Wondering how you can make this look your own?

Susan shares some simple ways to master this gorgeous spring look with Susan Posnick Cosmetics:

- Face: After using your perfect shade of COLORFLO, finish off with SHIMMER over the entire face.

- Cheeks: There’s a soft pink blush on her cheeks.  Be sure to apply blush on the apple of the cheek – light, fresh, and bright!  Try COLORME in Peony. 

- Brows: This look requires fresh groomed brows, feel free to lightly shape them with a brow pencil.

- Eyes: Try a bronze, copper.  The eyes in this look are defined, but not colored.  A perfect pair would be COLOREYEDEFINE in Bronze/Copper and Black/Jet Moonstone. 

- Mascara: LOTS of mascara, lots of lashes.  Really amp up the eyes and go a little bit overboard on the mascara.  This look is lush.

- Lips: Lips are a vibrant pink, but not neon. Try COLORESSENTIAL in Shanghai. 

Michelle Obama Takes The Lead On Healthy Living

Michelle Obama leads by example in a student relay race.

Michelle Obama leads by example in a student relay race.

 

It’s said that behind every great man, there’s a great woman. In the case of America’s President Barack Obama and First Lady, Michelle Obama- it’s easy to see this brainy beautiful walks right in stride beside her husband. In fact, she may be jogging.

While her well-executed style has landed her in the style section of almost every fashion publication, what makes Michelle Obama beautiful isn’t what designer frock she puts on it her legendary sculpted arms- its the organizations and causes she commits her life to that makes her beautiful to us.

Her leading initiative Let’s Move! aims to prevent childhood obesity by introducing and encouraging an active lifestyle. The organization also targets healthy diets through partnerships with food providers, retailers & celebrity chefs.  This cause can shape- literally- the health & lives of America’s future.

And we think that is a beautiful thing.

Read more about Let’s Move! and find out how you can help kickstart towards a healthier tomorrow.
