Call Me Picasso

My baby doll at age six can walk up to an easel and with the stroke of brush create a masterpiece using the talent and knowledge she has amassed in her two years of private art classes.  I, on the other hand, can only paint a wall or a door, but nothing that can be hung for show. Till now.

Thanks to the Hourglass Eyeshadow Palette I have learned to paint – my eyes!

Hourglass Cosmetics, one of the newest beauty spots at Nordstrom and Sephora, has carved a niche for itself as an innovative premiere beauty brand.  Their luxury products are infused with the most groundbreaking active ingredients available to create unbelievably surreal skin and more like amazing eyes!

My choice introduction product for my “canvas” was the Modernist Eyeshadow Palette (see pic) which is an actual artist-inspired eye shadow palette with seamless color transitions offering effortless blending in a single compact.  These palettes flaunt five complementary shades of soft and airy, finely-milled formulas in a fabulous array of shades, finish, and texture. And! Each palette features a selection of finishes from matte to shimmer for any number of looks with depth and dimension. My palette purchase was “Infinity” and as you can see in the picture below, it offers an array of beautiful colors.  Depending on where I am going I can apply the shadows light and dry and then transition to the darker colors.  Or, wet my brush to intensify the colors for a dramatic look for evening.  Since these colors are ‘painted on’ they last all day, too!  No primer needed.

Hourglass offers the best selection of shadows I’ve ever used. The colors are gorgeous and go on smoothly and best of all – there is no fallout!! Use them as individual colors or take on the role of ‘artist’ and mix two or three for a new color choice for the day.

No, we can’t all be a Picasso, Monet, or even a  da Vinci, but we can create some beautiful eyes – our eyes – on our own ‘canvas’.

The best makeup is your smile.  There is nothing like the one that comes from inside of you. – Unknown
