Let’s talk color! This season, we draw inspiration from the vibrant, farm-fresh hues abundant at our favorite juice bar. These shades deliver a juicy dose of color, look great on a multitude of skin tones, and are sure to keep you feeling radiant from day to night. After trying these energizing fruit and veggie-inspired shades, we’re sure your hearts will BEET for them too!
What You’ll Need:
- Two True Hues Eyeshadow Duo in Chalet
- (H)eyebrow Eye + Brow Liner in Brown
- Ooh-La-Lash! Volumizing Mascara
- Skin Bloom Blush in Heat (for darker skin tones) or Bellini (for lighter skin tones)…or try them in Boldly Glow Coconut Oil Blush Stick for extra hydration and radiance!
- Velvet Matte Lipstick in Spitfire or Danger
These shades are wonderful for more reasons than just their flattery, vibrance, and hypoallergenic, good-for-you benefits: they are buildable (for just a hint of color) and versatile. Use them together (instructions below) for full-on, fresh-pressed glam. Or, use them individually for a pop of fresh-pressed color just where you want it — in the photo above, Sam (far left) applied all shades (she chose Danger for lips) but used a light touch; Jess went with Spitfire, very lightly applied, on lips, and went heavier with Bellini on cheeks; and Georgia chose the berry smoky eye with Chalet.
How To “Dew” Fresh-Pressed Glam:
Take a page from this purple superfood – it translates perfectly into a stunning smoky eye!
Use the darker side (Laura’s Burgundy) of Two True Hues Eyeshadow palette in ‘Chalet’ to contour eyes.
With an angled brush, smudge (H)Eyebrow in ‘Brown’ along lashline.
Finish with two coats of Ooh-La-Lash! Mascara.
Add a warm flush of color inspired by the sweetness of nature.
Highlight cheekbones with Skin Bloom Blush in ‘Bellini’. For deeper skin tones, try ‘Heat’.
BEET & BERRY LIPS:
Pigment-drenched opaque shades ensure statement-making lips! Like all Skintelligent Beauty lipsticks, these are infused with antioxidant green tea and virgin coconut oil for healthy hydration.
Try Velvet Matte Lipstick in ‘Spitfire’ or ‘Danger’.
