Look Good, Feel Good Beauty Tips
As we have mentioned before, we have been lucky enough to have Leah Tuttle representing the Diane Kennedy and Cherry Velvet brands since their inception. Leah and her commitment to our brands, as well as her hard work and feedback, have been an integral part of the success of our company.
One of Leah's many talents is her eye for fashion and also beauty. During our recent photoshoot with Leah acting as our model, we couldn't help but delight at the gorgeous makeup and beauty look that she put together for the session. I even quizzed Leah on her lipstick colour and then went right out and purchased it myself! (It was Marc Jacobs le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon in Plum N Get it).
We asked Leah if she would share some of her favourite beauty tips so that we could all benefit from her expertise. After all, it's always fun when someone else recommends something, isn't it?
Makeup Starts with A Good Base
Leah's beauty routine includes an anti-aging serum, skin polish and moisturiser she's created for her own new line of products called Wildcraft Organics. (coming soon to WildcraftOrganics.ca ) Leah has beautiful skin, but as a base she uses Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation added with a Beauty Blender sponge. Next she applies a loose powder over her skin using a big fluffy brush to keep it light and airy. Before applying any eyeshadow she uses an eye primer - like Too Faced Shadow Insurance - and then applies MAC eyeshadows in Sketch and Cranberry using an eyeshadow brush. Eyeliner is Lancome Liner Plume in Noir. Eyebrows are next, and are lightly filled in with an Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade.
It's All About the Lips!
I have always loved a good lip colour, and no matter the season, I find a pretty berry lip colour or a red lipstick can make you go from drab to fab. Leah was wearing the Marc Jacobs Liquid Lip Crayon on the day of our photoshoot, but also recommends MAC Spice it Up and Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovesick as some of her favourites.
Whether you are someone that changes your makeup seasonally or just want to add a little something new to your makeup routine, these are fun beauty tips that could be easily incorporated into your existing look.
Thanks Leah for your recommendations! As usual, you look fabulous (and we love your Teal nail polish too!)
