Lovely and Ladylike: Bare Escentuals’ “Free to Be Classically Elegant” Kit
Plum is one of the season's hottest eye makeup colors, and this 6-piece "Free to Be Naturally Elegant" kit from Bare Escentuals definitely picks up on that fact. The two eyeshadows in the kit allow you to create a look that's as seductive and bewitching as the traditional smokey eye, but which can also translate into daytime. Instead of harsh blacks and grays we normally resort to when executing smokey eyes, this kit offers silvery whites, earthy plums and deep purples.
To pull off this sexy-but-understated look start by applying the silvery white Moonlit Eyecolor along your lids, from lashline to brow, thereby creating a delicate, luminous effect. Next, sweep the cocoa plum Spendor Eyecolor along your lower lids to add a bit of smoldering intensity. Finish by lining your eyes with the purple plum Fame Liner Shadow.
And, since rosy cheeks are a big hit for Spring, the kit also includes a Premiere Blush, which will give your face a soft, pinkish glow. Finish the look by adding some 10% Natural Lipgloss in Rose to your pout, for a kissable and oh-so-pretty mouth.
Easy enough, right?
A pewter-colored makeup bag that doubles as a simple clutch allows you to carry all these essentials to any luncheon, gala or benefit. You'll look and feel classy, like you're the very epitome of a dama (even if deep down, you know that you're both a lady and a tramp! lol)
