Make-up : Chase Aston for The Body Shop
The new Holiday 2011 make-up collection was just released this week, and I got a chance to have Chase Aston, the man behind 15 years worth of Body Shop make-up and some seriously beautiful red-carpet looks (inside dish - Cameron Diaz is a favorite client of his!) walk me through the products and do my make-up. And, he got me to appreciate silver eye shadow - As a dark-haired, Mediterranean-blooded gal, I thought I couldn't wear cool colors and I always stuck to golds and browns, but Chase got me to branch out, and the 4 Step Smokey Eye Palette is the way to start. It's even got a step-by-step, illustrated instructional on the back. Perfect!!
My favorite is The Sparkler, a light-weight, subtle, grown-up shimmer powder for face and hair that you mist on with a vintage-inspired poof. (There's got to be a technical word for it...but check out the above photo, in the top left corner. See what I mean?)
More photos and product reviews to come very soon, but I just wanted to share a couple quick photos. In the meantime, check out the Body Shop and start planning your Holiday looks!
