Summer Bridal Makeup Looks by Rick DiCecca

Estée Lauder has created a look for every bride. Whether your outdoor wedding calls for a natural look, or your nighttime celebration insists on dramatic eyes and bold lips, you can achieve your perfect bridal makeup using one of Rick’s four Bridal Styles: Natural, Classic, Dramatic, or Romantic.

To begin each look, prep your skin with your favorite Estée Lauder skincare products. Use a foundation brush to apply your shade of Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10 or Nutritious Vita-Mineral SPF 15 Makeup to even out skin tone for a flawless base. No matter what look you choose, be sure to apply Double Wear Eyeshadow Base from your lashline to the brow to ensure that your eyes stay fresh and glowing throughout the celebration.

Then try one of the four looks Rick DiCecca created! Continue reading →

8 Must-Have MAC Neutral Eyeshadows

About the Temptalia Must-Haves Series

A series of posts showcasing must-have products from MAC Cosmetics’ permanent line of products. Selections are based on quality, universality, uniqueness amongst the line, and the like. Limited edition shades are deliberately excluded to make buying easier. Readers’ comments act as a supplement to these lists of their favorites and must-haves. You can find the entire series here.

Shroom eyeshadow is a soft, lightly shimmered beige color. It is great for an all-over wash on the lid for the ultra neutral look, but it also makes for an excellent brow bone highlighter for just about any look. It is an essential for any one looking for neutral shadows.

Ricepaper eyeshadow is a smooth, shimmery peachy beige that can instantly brighten your look. It’s great to highlight the brow bone or the inner tear duct, and of course, it makes an awesome lid color, too.

Wedge eyeshadow is a matte, muted taupe. Mattes make for excellent neutral colors, because they can be used in so many ways. They’re perfect for giving any look more depth when used in the crease, and the contrast between finishes is often one way to add complexity to your look, too.

Bronze eyeshadow is a rich, deep chocolate-bronze shade with lots of shimmer. It’s gotta be one of my favorite shades of all-time, and I am constantly using it. It works well with other browns and neutrals, but it is easily paired with golds and greens, too. It’s a versatile shade with so much color pigmentation — I can’t imagine anyone not loving it.

Temptalia Asks You

What’s your favorite eyeshadow ever? Why?

Temptalia's Answer.

Rye is probably my favorite–if I had to just pick one! It’s a stunning antique gold shade with just a little bit of shimmer but plenty of color pay off. I have three, LOL!
