Get the Look: Natural Beauty! (Giveaway & Review!)

The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards had a number of memorable beauty looks! “Modern Family” actress Sarah Hyland sported thick bold brows complemented with creamy berry stained lips while “Mad Men” star January Jones rocked ruby lips and silver smoky eyes. The brilliant 14-year-old “Mad Men” star Kiernan Shipka exhibited a youthful, natural glow.

If you've been following my Mary Kay makeup looks you know I love a bold eye. So I thought it would be fun to recreate Kiernan's natural makeup look.

I also created a sort of creepy animated picture so you could see how it really looks! (See below)

Please forgive my messy hair, I usually do my makeup first!
So I started this look the way I normally do, with a clean, moisturized face and some Mary Kay cc cream across my eyelids and under eye area. I then brushed the lightest color of Mary Kay's Baked Eye Trio in Earth Bound across my eye lids. I love this color because its shimmery but still a nice neutral. I just used an eye makeup applicator to apply the color, and then used the opposite side of the applicator to dip in the brown and green. (I used more brown then green) and applied this combination to my upper eye lids, in the crease and across the top. I used my fingers to smudge it a little and even out the coverage. This whole look is pretty low key so I kept the application process that way too. I then lined my eyes with a light coat of Mary Kay eyeliner in deep brown. Though I am a black eyeliner gal, I really liked the brown eyeliner in this look, it defined my eye but in a much more subtle way. I then applied two coats of black mascara.

 After my eyes were done, I used a brush to apply translucent powder across my face.  I used a blush brush to apply Mary Kay Mineral Cheek color in Shy Blush to the apples of my cheeks (you want to smile and then apply it upwards). I finished the look with Mary Kay at Play Jelly Lip Gloss in Poppy. This color looks orange, but when over your natural lip color actually comes out to a nice pinky red.

Verdict: I really like this look - at first I thought the eye color would go on to dark for a natural look, but when it was all done I thought it came out pretty great! This is a look that I'll add to my makeup rotation for sure!
