DRY SKIN RESCUE TREATMENT
A homemade facial mask that enriches skin with a healthy dose of all natural moisture.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon jojoba oil
  • 1 teaspoon rose hydrosol
  • 1 teaspoon whipping cream

Directions
Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a bowl, and once the mixture has a creamy consistency, apply a layer over entire face. As it is a mask, allow the mixture to rest on your face for 15 minutes. Wash mask off with warm water, pat dry (never rub) with a clean towel. Moisturize if needed!

She describes the look…

It begins with Jordana’s ‘Parisian Plum’ Eyeliner (A dark, dulled purple)across the lid and extended into a tail. (I have small-ish eyes with a slight slant….I feel like this makes them look exotic and POP! I always use tails!) next is a Loreal paris HIP Bright shadow duo #538 ‘Flamboyant’. Its a combination of matte purple and shiny shimmery gold! The gold has great color intensity, but I did have to go heavier on the purple for what I wanted. I brushed the gold across the lid into the crease, and all along the bottom lash. Blended the purple into and slightly above the crease, extending out slightly to meet the tail. The look is finished with IsaDora’s #05 ‘Royal Blue’ mascara, which I feel just explodes against the gold! (oh, the lips are Clinique Color Surge #21 ‘Precious Pink’ Lipstick!)

I used Gold Stroke pigment all over lid, Trophy Pink eyeshadow on inner lid, Queen’s Jewel eyeshadow on middle of lid, Silverwear eyeshadow on middle of lid, Modern Heir eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease and on brow, and Feline kohl power on lower lash line. I wore Don’t Be Shy blush on cheeks with Sculpt sculpting powder to contour and Micro Pink beauty powder to highlight. I had Snob Appeal lipstick with Contessa lipglass on my lips.
