Happy Friday, colorOn eVIPs! We’re a bit punchy from getting up at 4:00 am EST to watch the coverage of The Wedding of the Century (it MUST be in capital letters!). One thing fashionistas were talking about right away is that Kate Middleton – now Duchess of Cambridge – did her own makeup. This really is astounding to us across the pond, where 13-year-olds have eyelash extensions, spray tans, and highlights, and even the most D-list celebrity has a makeup artist and hair stylist work her over for the most minor of appearances.
The new Duchess took a few lessons from makeup artist Arabella Preston – whose website states she is “particularly adept at natural bridal makeup”– and, according to People magazine, the princess felt so comfortable with the techniques Preston showed her, that she opted for DIY for her wedding to Prince William, who racked up four new titles today.
You can create Princess Katherine’s soft, barely-there smoky eye using colorOn’s El instant eye shadow applicators, a delicate and creamy gradient blend of shell pink and chocolate brown. Add to that a strong, groomed brow, a slightly flushed cheek and nude, semi-glossy lips, and the future queen was not only naturally beautiful and glowing with health, she was very distinctly herself. No grand makeovers for this real woman.
You may have some major events coming up yourself – perhaps not on quite the scale of today’s estimated 3 billion audience – and colorOn offers you such a range of colors, textures, and combinations that you’re sure to find “The Right Look” for your prom, graduation, bridal party makeup, your own wedding, or Mother’s Day, which approaches rapidly.
We’re sure that you’ll find the perfect look with colorOn — you have the option of creating a totally Custom Kit picked from our 77 instant eye shadow looks or choosing from the 24 pre-selected Variety Kits. And stock up on the 11 Smooth Shimmers or 7 Metallic Glitters loose mineral shadows while you’re at it!
And on this memorable Friday, we have our usual Winners Circle announcement. It’s not as big a deal as marrying the future King of England, but e-VIP member Alana Rustici of Yonkers, New York, wins 10 applications of crease-resistant, melt-proof, water-resistant instant mineral eye makeup, whether she chooses a custom eye makeup wardrobe or one of our pre-made Variety Kits, which now sell for the same price.
We’ll keep drawing a new name from our eVIPs every Friday in 2011, and the winner receives instant email notification that she’s won a great $20.00 gift. No purchase is necessary to become an eVIP and be entered into the drawing, so if you aren’t an eVIP, now’s the time!
Be sure to add our domain @coloronpro.com to your Safe Senders list, or you may never know YOU won. We’re off for another cuppa and to check out all the websites for pictures of the chapeaux, trilbys, top hats, and crazy Philip Treacy confections perched on royal heads — and what the showily pregnant Victoria “Posh” Beckham wore. We promise to shelve the Anglophile pretensions by tea-time.
