This past weekend I attended a fun launch event for Victoria's Secret's (VS) new Spring and Fall beauty/fashion lines at their enormous Soho, New York location.
I was greeted by a familiar (and fabulous) face from the beauty industry - none other than Beyonce's makeup artist Jackie Gomez. Many of you may remember she gave me a fantastic exclusive interview last year about all things beauty - and Beyonce and sister Solange's favorite beauty products!
Well, I was in for a real treat, because Jackie was doing makeup that day at the event and previewing products from Victoria Secret's new Spring 2010 Makeup Line - Savage Beauty.
Jackie started out with my look working on my eyes, using the Limited-edition Spring 2010 Mineral Eye Shadow Palette pictured above. These four silky smooth shadows (gold, jade, shimmery chocolate brown and a bronzy rose) blended beautifully and I loved how rich, glamorous and exotic they were on me! Note: The shadows in this line contain a high level of shimmer. The shadows can also be worn wet for a stronger, metallic look, or dry for a more shimmery finish.
Next she dusted some of the Limited-edition Spring 2010 Mineral Bronzing Powder which gave me a nice glow (it has a high amount shimmer). It immediately brightened up my complexion an looked great on my skin tone. This is a product that will work for all skin tones, when you want bronzer with a bit more "kick" than usual.
Jackie completed the look with a sexy, shiny nude lip, courtesy of the Limited-edition Spring 2010 Lip Gloss SPF 15 in the shade shown left, which is a pretty champage/brown sugar shade with lots of golden shimmer. It smelled and tasted incredible - like fresh pineapples! It was lightweight, not-sticky or greasy and moisturizing. This is another shade that will work for all skin tones and also over neutral colored lipstick, or on bare lips.
If you're a fan of VS beauty collections, or are looking for some sexy, attention getting makeup for this Spring/Summer that won't break the bank, don't wait to pick some of these up and start playing! - RLB
