Bringing Cannes Home with colorOn…Professional

Standard
Aishwarya Rai

Aishwarya Rai

We have followed the looks at the Cannes Film Festival obsessively, as we follow all of the award shows and celebrity gatherings to see how our favorites choose to look and dress when left to their own devices. Actors are always playing roles and having their hair, makeup, and clothing dictated by directors, producers, photographers, stylists, and so on. That’s the reason the Red Carpet makes for such GREAT television!

We’ve picked five fabulous looks that celebrities wore at various Cannes-related events and premieres so that we could show you how to re-create those same looks using colorOn…Professional products.

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie

The most stunning, colorful, and fashion forward was, without a doubt, Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai, whom we’ve featured before. She is stunning and totally unafraid to experiment with bold colors. At Cannes, her look was heavily influenced by the runway at Jason Wu, with heavy gold and sapphire metallic shadows. You can get a more wearable version by using Lost in Space instant eye shadow from lid to brow, and our Smooth Monarch Gold Shimmer under the lower lashes. Follow with lots of mascara, a touch of bronzer, and a nude/caramel gloss, and you’ll rock the Bollywood look, too.

Diane Kruger

Diane Kruger

The ethereal Angelina Jolie complimented her understated beige, head-to-toe Ferragamo with her usual smoky eye/pinky nude lip. You can get the same smoldering eye with colorOn’s Lava instant eye shadow, bringing a bit of the gold under the lower lash-line. Lots of mascara, groomed and filled brows, and Angelina’s signature pinkish/nude gloss and you are ready to shine.

Emily Browning

Emily Browning

The lovely Diane Kruger, who simply wowed the world throughout the award show season with her incredible taste in gowns, kept up her winning streak with a gold Calvin Klein that called for spring flower colors in her makeup.

You can get the same eye look with colorOn’s Coral Cove instant eye shadow, a peony cream blush and lipstick.

The petite Emily Browning, in a nude lace Valentino gown, complimented the gold and silver in the lace with the same shadow colors as colorOn’s Gypsy instant eye shadow to make her hazel eyes stand out, then added color with honeysuckle pink cream blush and lipstick.

Gwen Stefani

Gwen Stefani

Finally, we have the hottest mama on the planet, singer Gwen Stefani. In her plunging black Stella McCartney, Mrs. Gavin Rossdale went even more retro than usual with pin-curls, black smoky eyes, and bright pink lipstick. You can get the exact same smoky eye using colorOn’s Noche. Sorry we can’t supply anything else Ms. Stefani possesses: a multi-platinum singing career, a successful clothing and accessories line, two beautiful children, and a rather sublime English husband.

However, we can supply a winner on Friday, so we’ll be back with the Winners Circle then! And remember, we still have a FREE SHIPPING promotion running until the end of May.

Happy Friday and Happy Graduation!

Happy Friday, and for many of our fans, Happy Graduation! This is such a huge milestone, and an amazing time in your lives. Congratulations for making it through, and for being excited about the next step on your journey.

So, makeup.

If you missed this week’s blog post, we went all pastel, with a bold matte and a softer metallic, both in shades of teal. If you missed it, check out Ginnifer Goodwin’s outstanding statement matte eye makeup (which we tell you how to duplicate with colorOn, of course) and Jena Malone’s more ethereal shimmer eye makeup (same deal).

Even if these looks aren’t “you,” 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 78 instant eye shadow looks or choosing from the 24 pre-selected Variety Kits we offer. And stock up on the 11 Smooth Shimmers or 7 Metallic Glitters loose mineral shadows while you’re at it; some are limited editions and won’t be around forever! ANd we still have free shipping through the end of May, so be sure to take advantage…

Next, we have our usual Winners Circle announcement. e-VIP member Jessica Ortega of Doral, Florida, 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!

Summery Eye Makeup: Matte or Metal, Pastel’s the Thing…

Standard
Ginnifer Goodwin's matte pastel eye makeup

Ginnifer Goodwin's matte pastel eye makeup

As the summer issues of the fashion glossies hit the stands, we’re thinking about all the summery makeup we’re seeing at movie premieres and celeb events, and one look that stood out was the flip sides of the same coin – as pastel teal/seafoam green, done in a bright matte on Ginnifer Goodwin at The Met Costume Ball, and on Jena Malone in a shimmery wash at the premiere of her film Sucker Punch.

Ginnifer Goodwin “hit the matte” at the 2011 Met gala with nary a bit of glitter or shimmer in her opaque eye makeup, all the better to set off her jade gown and turquoise-and-jade jewels. You can create the same intense pastel opacity with colorOn’s Key West instant eye shadow, from the Eye Envy Tropics Variety Kit. The gradient light to deep teal should be used from above the crease down to the lash line, concentrated in the inner corners and below the lash line as well, and set with our matte Get Set! Setting Powder #1. It’s a bold look, so stick with a strong, groomed brow and keep the rest of the face bare of all but the most minimal concealer, cream blush and nude gloss.

Jena Malone's metallic pastel eye makeup

Jena Malone's metallic pastel eye makeup

At the other end of the reflective spectrum is Jena Malone’s chromatic seafoam eye makeup. A much less dramatic look, it can be achieved by using colorOn’s Camera Ready instant eye makeup from the lid up above the crease to the brow bone below well-defined brows. Camera Ready is a glittery prismatic combination of reflective sapphire shading to platinum to crushed mint for a wash of…seafoam, especially when set with our shimmery Get Set! Setting Powder #2. This more subtle wash of eye color allows for more color on the face, like this pale pink shimmer on the cheeks and lips.

Remember, we’re offering free shipping for the entire month of May, so grab up a collection of looks from our 78 different colorOn instant eye shadow applicators, or one of our pre-packaged Variety Kits and you’re set for summer. You can find the looks above not only in the Variety Kits, but in the Custom Kits where you can mix and match to your heart’s content. You’re ready, set, go…for anything!

We’ll be back Friday with the Winners Circle. 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!

Happy Friday!

TGIF, colorOn fans! In case you missed Wednesday’s blog post, we showed you two “Get that Golden Glow” looks from the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art last weekend. Iman and Michelle Williams pulled the look off with great style, and we told you how you can re-create those looks using colorOn…Professional instant eye shadow applicators.

That said, today’s winner is e-VIP member Kimmeng Suon of Paramount, California, who can claim 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.

Golden Glow at The Met Gala

Standard
Golden Goddess Iman, a timeless beauty...

Golden Goddess Iman, a timeless beauty...

The 63rd annual Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is where celebrities show their wilder sides after all of the Awards Shows are over. It’s the last major dress-up occasion of the season, and we were not disappointed, especially with so many women wearing Alexander McQueen, this year’s posthumous honoree.

One look we saw that is not only on-trend but plain and simply fabulous is the golden glow sported by Iman and Michelle Williams.

The ever-amazing Iman was breathtaking in head-to-toe gold from her hair to her Stella McCartney jumpsuit to her Louboutins. Her smoky gold eye makeup brought out the gorgeous caramel tones of her skin and hair. You can get the same look with colorOn’s Lava instant eye shadow from The Eye Envy Precious Metals Variety Kit, a mix of shimmering gold and black that will give you the same look in literally 5 minutes. After applying Lava to the eyes from the lash-line to the brow-bone, use an eyeliner brush to take a bit of the excess colorOn creamy mineral shadow and trace the black under the lower lash-line, and add a bit more gold to the inner corners of the eye. Set it with our glittering Get Set Powder #2, and you’ll be just as sultry as this fashion icon.

Golden Girl Michelle Williams

Golden Girl Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams had one of the most wildly successful Awards Seasons ever. Here, she ends the season with a golden glow offset by the sequined swallows on her amazing Miu Miu gown. She’s gone to a more golden blonde pixie, and her makeup is a tonal collection of golds, bronzes and caramel gloss. You can get the same eye look with colorOn’s 14 Karat instant eye shadow from The Metallics Variety Kit applied from lashes to brows. A bit of brow pencil to frame the eyes, plenty of mascara and a sweep of bronzer, and you can look like this Golden Girl.

We’re offering free shipping for the entire month of May, so grab up a collection of looks from our 78 different colorOn instant eye shadow applicators, or one of our pre-packaged Variety Kits and you’re set for summer. You can find the looks above not only in the Variety Kits, but in the Custom Kits where you can mix and match to your heart’s content.You’re set for anything!

Our style icons – celebrities – give us great inspiration for special occasion looks. With proms just around the corner, we offer one final blog post to help you re-create celebrity looks that are totally appropriate for the big night, Your Prom.

The ethereal Dakota Fanning, who would be going to prom this year were she not busy making movies, wears a gorgeous understated makeup for those of you who don’t like wearing too much makeup. With neutral cheeks touched with a nude highlighter and nude, glossy lips, her bright eyes are the focal point, accented with warm gold and rose shadows that really pop. Use colorOn’s 14 Karat instant eye shadow on your lid. Finish with lots of waterproof mascara, groom your brows, and you’re ready to be the natural beauty at prom.

Emily Browning's Bronzed Smoky Eyes

If you’re more into dramatic eye makeup, Emily Browning’s look is for you. Start with colorOn’s Lava instant eye shadow, and apply from the lashline up to the browbone.  Wow! And with such strong eyes, a little peachy blush or bronzer, and a rosy nude shimmer lip gloss are all you need to be the sultry belle of the ball.

Lea Michele Brings the Color to Smoky Eyes

Lea Michele’s look is even more daring in its use of color to make an impact. Start with colorOn’s Noche instant eye shadow as your base from the lash line to the brow bone. Then, line your upper and lower lash lines with either our Smooth Peacock Blue Shimmer (for light skin tones) or Smooth Black Star Blue Shimmer (for deeper complexions). Waterproof mascara, a pink or nude cream blush, and a nude-to-pink lipstick will keep your shimmering eyes the center of attention.

We’re offering free shipping for the entire month of May, so grab up your prom makeup, a Mother’s Day gift (it’s Sunday!), or an array of looks from our 78 different colorOn instant eye shadow applicators, and you’re more that set. You’re ready for anything!
