|(ARA) - Looking for ways to add vibrancy this New Year? Makeup artist Roxanna Floyd, artist to stars such as Queen Latifah, Angela Bassett, Janet Jackson and more, gives expert advice on maximizing your color palette for 2004:
Try a Trend -- Always wanted to sprinkle on the glitter? Been looking for a reason to wear false eyelashes? Put those trends to the test this New Year by wearing a sparkly nail polish to your weekend brunch, or a shimmery body lotion to your best friend’s dinner party.
An Eye For Cool -- Wear a shimmery, sheer look with crème-to-powder, waterproof eye shadows in breakthrough colors, such as MK Signature Eyesicles which comes in three trendy limited edition colors: Cherry Cola, Mermaid (green) and Pink Frost. You can toss these compact colorful tubes into a small purse to take your look from office to evening.
New Year, New You! Introduce the playful side of your beauty personality this year! Surprise those around you by wearing a playful hair extension or colored mascara to the next celebration. A flirty, beaded necklace and earrings completes the look.
Perfect your pout. Using the proper lip liner and lipstick can make a drastic difference to your smile. The MK Signature Lip Outliner Pencil is a new translucent lip outliner that prevents lipstick or lipgloss from bleeding or feathering when used before application. Keep your pout perfect by applying a moisturizing lipstick with delicious colors like Mary Kay’s Luscious Color Lipstick in Apricot Glaze or Whipped Berries. Both lip products average between $12 and $15.
Nourish your skin with an emollient-rich moisturizer. The chill of the air can chap cheeks and dry out the skin, so protect it during the day with a moisturizer that contains an SPF of at least 15. Some sunscreens are even tinted, giving skin a natural glow and flawless finish. Remember to cover the neck and ears, too, even in the winter.
Adding color is a simple way to transform yourself this year, and also makes it easy to go from daytime radiance to evening glamour. For more information on products to create an updated look for 2004, call your Independent Beauty Consultant, or locate one at (800) Mary Kay or www.marykay.com.
