Project Runway blue smokey eye with Mary Kay

Hello Gorgeous!

October starts Fall like weather and that means more makeup! Woo hoo! Gone are the minimalist days of summer and bring on daytime smokey eyes!

Like a blue smoky eye look created by Mary Kay Celeb Makeup Artist Luis Casco is perfect for special day time events and easy to take up a notch for the evening. 

Lets meet the products for a Project Runway inspired look with the makeup sponsor for the show, Mary Kay Cosmetics.

I received some samples to try at home and create my own Project Runway inspired look.

The Mary Kay eye primer is amazing and I love the white base it creates. It's not an opaque white base, but just enough to create a clean canvas for putting bold colors on. It retails for $12.00

Mary Kay® Eye Primer is a waterproof formula that glides on smoothly to extend the wear of eye color and prevent it from creasing and smudging.
  • Suitable for sensitive skin.
  • Fragrance-free.
  • Ophthalmologist-tested.
  • Suitable for contact lens wearers.

The new Mary Kay Eye Color Palette in Sapphire Noir is a limited edition palette for $24.00.

Sapphire Noir

Inspired by the world’s most precious jewels, each tempting palette includes five complementary shades, from matte to high-shimmer, with true color payoff.
  • Easy-to-apply shades.
  • Intense color in one sweep.
  • Color stays true and lasts all day.
  • Blendable and buildable.
  • Luxurious, luminous finish.

This lil gem is the Mary Kay Cosmetics lipstick coup de gras! It's a semi matte finish lipstick in a great shaped tube and provides just enough lip color to finish the face without competing with the eye makeup.
The shade I am wearing is Pink Rose, though I couldn't find it on the website, but here is a link to something similar.

Sleek sophistication is yours with this color-rich, creamy lipstick. $16.00
  • Long-lasting, stay-true color.
  • Won’t feather or bleed.
  • Conditions and feels moisturizing.
  • Keeps lips feeling soft, smooth and comfortable.
NOTE: In electronic media, true colors may vary.

In my top photo I show the Mary Kay eyelash curler. I couldn't find it on the website, but it works really well, and comes with one sponge in the curler slot and 3 refills. This means you have enough to go through an entire year. I like this tool, and though I am not ready to give up my Shiseido curler, this is strong competition! I found one on Amazon for $12.00.

I also experienced the Mary Kay Makeup Finishing Spray  that is a partner with Skindinavia.

Set your look for lasting beauty! When makeup meltdown is not an option, give it the staying power to last up to 16 hours.
  • As a final step, helps makeup look freshly applied for hours.
  • Also works as a refresher any time of the day.
  • Dries quickly and washes off easily.
  • For any skin type, even oily.
$18.00 and totally worth it!

Mary Kay® Lash Love® Mascara

Love your lashes with the mascara that defines, defends and delivers four times the volume while looking naturally flawless, soft and healthy. The flexible, sculpted brush separates and coats lashes.
  • Flake-, Smudge- and clump-resistant.
  • Mary Kay® Panthenol-Pro Complex™ helps condition lashes and helps defend against breakage.
  • Fragrance-free.
  • Ophthalmologist-tested and suitable for contact lens wearers.
  • Water-resistant formula.
$15.00 and a best seller and award winner!

Thank you Mary Kay for the samples and I'm looking forward to a Fall full of smokey blue eye makeup!
