Yes, yes...this scribe has been preaching about the luxury and ease of the ultra-exclusive and hidden beauty lounges catering to stars who, all of a sudden, need to be primped, plumped, and prepped in the last minute.
However, a professional makeup artists and stylists fixing up these stars, actually wish for a complete kit that can be customized then slide into a normal tote or messenger bag. These nervous actresses wish they have a complete fix-up, personalized makeup kit that fits neatly into their teeny clutches. A dab and a swipe for quickie touch-ups before facing the cameras is all they really need and want.
This Jouer user-on-the-go has already, many times, vouch the virtues of this creamy, easy to use, easy to personalize, "lock & click" makeup line. Imagine relief when this scribe found out that Celebrity Makeup Artist, Stephen Sollitto for Starworks Artists, used Jouer's pop & lock easy makeup compartments and gloss and smart matte tinted sunscreen for a glamorous, complete and polished good for Amy Adams to face the Golden Globe media.
Here's the steps and the breakdown:
FACE: "Start with a foundation and apply all over skin." We suggest, MATTE MOISTURE TINT SPF 15 to make skin appear beautiful and creamy.
CHEEKS: "I applied MINERAL POWDER BLUSH in ROSE to Amy's cheeks. A universally wearable neutral shade. This blush has been on my favorite list for a while now."
EYES: "I kept it simple with POWDER EYESHADOW in ESPRESSO which I applied all over the lid. Under her lashes I used POWDER EYESHADOW in BORDEAUX to widen the eye and make them the focus."
LIPS: "I finished the look by applying MOISTURIZING LIP GLOSS in DIVINE on Amy's lips. Divine is a gorgeous, wearable everyday rose-colored neutral. It perfectly tied the look together."
Not only do these little squares of color can slide into a jeans pocket, put them all together, you'll get a complete red carpet makeup kit that you pop into an evening clutch. Easy and quick makeup isn't only for the everyday but also for award shows.
A good foundation-pun intended-for any great makeup is good skin.
