“Independent country music recording artist Stephanie Quayle (http://www.stephaniequayle.com) had a summer concert at the Abbott Kinney Music Festival in Venice, California, so we wanted to go with a bronzy, dewy look. I was excited to do this look as it’s my favorite and can be worn year round. Who wouldn’t want that sought after California Summer Glow? Remember there are no rules! If you are hooked on a certain product that works for you, then by all means, use it. But I dare you to try something new,” Malouf said.
For the look, Malouf says, “I started with the Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint (also spotlighted this month as a ‘Best Bet’) which is available in four shades. I used Pearl. This Moisture Tint is SPF 20, is oil free, hypo-allergenic, water-resistant and has Gingko Biloba which offers calming and soothing properties. I lightly tapped the Jouer Brightening Stick under hers. I love this product because it has Light Diffusing Multi Mineral Pigments in it that deflect light. I then swept Sunshine bronzer on Stephanie’s cheeks and lightly dusted the color on her forehead and where the sun would naturally hit her skin. I highlighted the eyes and accentuated the cheek bones with Tiare all over color. Jouer makes my favorite eye liners. They are formulated with Vitamin A & Vitamin E which prevents the color from creasing and fading. I framed her eye with Chocolate eyeliner and I used the Noir Mascara. I ended with Veronica Hydrating Lipstick, which has the powerful moisturizing properties of Brazils Cupuac’u Butter.”
You can get this look seamlessly by using these seven products by Jouer (http://www.jouercosmetics.com) all year round!
To take the artist’s look from on stage to after party was simple. Malouf said, “After the concert, we flirted with the idea of a sultry sexy eye. All I did was add Charcoal Eye Shadow by Jouer, lined her eyes with Noir Liner and did a full row of individual eye lashes. She looked amazing and was ready for the evening to come,” Malouf said.
“Kerry’s Best Kept Secret for September is Clarins Instant Sun Light Summer Glow Palette SPF 15 and Shimmer Palette for Eyes Cheeks Decollete. These two products are colorful and radiant and a must have in your makeup bag.”
