The 2014 spring/summer makeup trend is....Going for the Gold!



Golden arches for the Dior Spring/Summer 2014 show created by the inimitable makeup artist, Pat McGrath. At once futuristic and organic… but better suited for the catwalk than the sidewalk.  It is possible to reference this nod to the otherworld and still bring it down to earth.

Gold can be used in a subtle way to shape the brow and give a touch of gleam. The brow is hair so use hair products rather than a stiff brow gel. A touch of gold pomade on a spooley brush offers hold and shine. Go for broke with Oribe’s 24k Pomade or… Prtty Peaushun in Medium does the trick, beautifully.

The idea isn’t to go ‘Goldfiner’ and wear them all together...balance the look keeping it simple and understated.  Focus on one area or mix in sheer and opaque gold accents. Gold is flattering to all skin tones as it reflects light and warms the complexion.

With Pat McGrath at the helm as Creative Advisor, it’s no wonder that Dolce & Gabbana Cosmetics has a gorgeous range of golds this season.

Go Midas with gold eyeshadow… Using a fluffy brush will give a sheer wash of color. Using a tighter firmer brush will give a more opaque payoff.
Note:  Don't forget to frame the eye with a strong lash to prevent a washed out look.

For the modern look of golden eyeliner, use on a nude eye, keeping the line thin and frame with dark lashes and a defined brow.

Gold lipstick isn’t as scary as it sounds when the formula is sheer and creamy. Use it alone for an updated version of a nude mouth or use it in the center of the lower lip over your favorite lip shade for a pouty effect.

Golden gloss is always friendly. Clear gloss gives shine and gold adds luminescence. It stands alone or over any other lip color.

When in doubt about the rest, nails are best! Gold is neutral and looks great on both long and short nails. Use gold as a French tip over any other color from neutral to bright to deep. 
Hip Tip:  My favorite modern approach with long nails is to paint the underside of the nail. Try gold underneath and your favorite nail color on top… Or do the Louboutin look with red underneath and the gold on top!
  
To finish your look...give a subdued radiance to the skin on your body and/or face with Prtty Peaushun.  Use our Peaushun all over or just in areas that catch the light most.  It is the perfect product to use with any makeup or non-makeup look! I like to wear Plain (clear) everywhere and then use a shade (sheer) Light, Medium, Dark or Deep Dark on the high points of exposed skin like shoulders, d├ęcolletage, top of arms and front of legs and on the cheek bones and brow bones.  

What is the most golden shade of all our Peaushun you ask? Medium. It will definitely give you that midas touch look! And it also just so happens to be our most popular Peau-shade.

Alright my gilded Prttys, I hope you enjoyed this glowing golden gab sesh.... I sure did!! Thank you all for reading....Looking forward to next week!

SUNDAY SPOTLIGHT: DooBop

This SUNDAY SPOTLIGHT is not only a PRTTY PEAUSHUN favorite but also an Oprah favorite - so there's no question how fabulous they are - presenting: DOOBOP!



DOOBOP is the brain child of beauty line creator, Jodie Patterson, and former beauty senior beauty-marketing executive, Benjamin Bernet. The two came together to fill a void in the beauty realm. Just as the world is beautifully diverse - they sought to diversify the beauty world. 



"The plan: to create a chic online shopping destination that mirrored the ethnic diversity spotted daily on the streets of New York City."


DOOBOP wanted to take the struggle out of beauty and did so by going against the cookie cutter one-size/product/color fits all beauty offering. The result? A unique selection of carefully curated beauty products for all ethnicities, skin colors and styles. 

The beauty team behind the scenes at DOOBOP is an impressive lineup of pros. The experts include a hair architect, makeup artists, a nutritionist, hair stylist and dermatologist. But that's not all, DOOBOP also utilizes influencers from all over the world. 


As if their story and approach to beauty didn't win you over (we doubt it) DOOBOP also gives back by donating $1 of every order to the Community of Unity (CofU) who has worked to empower young people to achieve success and fulfillment by awakening in them a unique sense of purpose and potential.

It's not hard to see why Oprah is such a fan. Check out her current favorite DOOBOP product here.

PRTTY PEAUSHUN, a product perfect for all skin types and tones, is thrilled to be offered at an equally diverse and forward-thinking beauty source.
