Jim DeMarco has teamed up with Three Custom Color Specialists to create The Daytime Drama Collection: the perfect go-to palette for the look of a star!
Here are Jim's tips on how to get the look:
STEP 1 - Create a flawless complexion with Three Custom Color Specialists Crème Concealer/Foundation using your fingers (my favorite tool!), a sponge or foundation brush.
STEP 2 - Apply Siren (a bronze crème) directly under the cheekbones and blend back to the ear to contour and define the cheek. Then, apply Siren on the eyelid as a base for other shadows or wear it alone as a quick pick-me-up to brighten the eyes!
STEP 3 – For a natural flush, blend Red Carpet Lip & Cheek Stain onto the apple of the cheeks. Make sure to blend back to where you contoured under the cheek! Then apply Red Carpet onto the lips for a longwearing reddish-mauve tint.
STEP 4 – Apply Back Lit Crème high on the cheekbones to highlight (pro makeup artist trick!) Also, apply it on the brow bone, inner corner of the eye, and slightly under the eye to brighten.
STEP 5 - Line the eyes with Close Up Crème Eye Definer, working along the lash line from the outer corner to the inner eye. Next, try winging out the line for some Old Hollywood Glamour. Or, for a modern, smokey effect, smudge the top and lower lash lines with Three Custom Color Specialists Contour Eye Shadow Brush.
STEP 6 - Complete your look with a swipe of Camera Ready Lip Gloss. Wear over Red Carpet Lip & Cheek Stain for added drama or alone for a perfect pout.
To finish the look, apply Three Custom Color Specialists Translucent Face Powder and define the brows with Three Custom Color Specialists Brow Powder and Clear Brow Gel.
