In the latest edition of our how-to series Best in Beauty, makeup artist Francelle Daly shares an easy look to try for your next date night or special event. As seen in our Spring 2017 Window mailer, the look features a dramatic long lashes and deep berry lip.
Francelle creates a nourishing base starting with an ultra moisturizing Starskin mask, followed by a small application of the nutrient-rich Natura Bisse Diamond Extreme cream and an anti-aging serum to help firm up the skin. After the moisturizing base, a Kevyn Aucoin primer is chosen for its lightweight formula, which minimizes pores while simultaneously protecting the skin. Primer application is also the step that ensures your make and foundation stay in place throughout the evening.
The look is punctuated by two focal points: the eyes and lips. Francelle isn’t shy when applying the black mascara—an organic formula from Kjaer Weis is chosen for its easy, clump-free finish that glides on the lashes, creating incredible length and volume. Continuing in the easy-to-apply, maximum-impact course, Francelle finishes the look with the weightless, lustrous Hourglass Lip Stylo in a deep berry color.
Watch along as Francelle and her friend Cat Lowry demonstrate how to achieve a cool, understated face perfect for an evening out on the town, and get the look by shopping her edit below.
