Signature Makeup Looks

ARTISTRY™ SIGNATURE MAKEUP LOOKS

Step-by-step guides to creating a look you can quickly master—then transform as desired.

To help any woman achieve a look that is effortlessly pulled together, Artistry Global Makeup Artist Rick DiCecca worked with Artistry® color to develop a makeup look that follows EVEN, DEFINE, and COLOR.

It’s called Artistry® Signature Makeup Everyday Natural Look. A chic, modern look that is simply natural, mistake-proof, and perfect for every day.

The look: Even skin. Defined eyes. Touch of color for lips and cheeks.

The feeling: Perfected, polished, confident, and beautiful.

You create the Everyday Natural Look by combining a few techniques—each are easy to do and guaranteed to give you the same, perfect result every time.

START HERE… THEN BUILD

You will also consider it your “base look,” the starting point for all your other makeup looks. It offers unlimited flexibility to building upon it, so by adding additional products from EVEN, DEFINE, and COLOR you can create any look you desire, including your own Signature Look.

"Simply follow the steps for a natural, mistake-proof look"

Step 1 EVEN 

Product: Concealer

• Dot a small amount of concealer onto the dark areas under the eyes and onto any discoloration. Using your finger, gently pat concealer into skin to blend.

Reminder: Your Artistry® Signature Makeup Everyday Natural Look is not complete without a multi-tasking primer and your perfect shade match of foundation, too.

Step 2 DEFINE

Product: Artistry Signature Color® Eye Shadow Quad (two shades), Artistry Signature Eyes® Automatic Liquid Liner, Artistry Signature Eyes Length & Definition Mascara®

• Sweep the lighter eye color shade over entire lid—start at lash line and blend up to midway or natural crease. Brush darker shade along crease: start at outer eye and blend inward toward nose, no more than two-thirds of the way across. Tip: Start with a light layer, gradually add more to build the depth of color you want.

• Starting one-fourth of the way across the lid from the nose, apply the tip of the eyeliner brush to the base of the lashes and draw it out toward the outer corner of the eye.

• Place the mascara wand at base of lashes; wiggle it in place to deposit product—this creates the most volume there—then sweep wand up through lash tips.

Step 3 COLOR

Product: Artistry Signature Color® Sheer Lipstick

• Apply lipstick in a single motion, starting from center of lip to sides on both top and bottom, then squeeze lips together.

The Fresh, Barely-There Look That Subtly Enhances And Perfects Skin, Eyes and Lips.

Step 1 EVEN 

• Apply Artistry Ideal Radiance® Illuminating CC Cream. Start applying to the center of your face, working outward one area at a time.

• If you need more coverage apply your perfect shade of Artistry Exact Fit® Powder Foundation using a large powder brush. Apply to the face in a circular motion; start on and around the nose, then move to the other areas of the face one at a time. Finish by lightly dusting your eyelids.

Step 2 DEFINE

Product: Use the skin tone enhancing natural brown tones of Artistry Signature Color® Eye Shadow Quad in Natural Glow to define your eyes without showing too much.

• Apply shade #3 into the crease and along lower lashes.

• Apply shade #1 to the center of the eyelids; start along base of lashes and blend up. • For a brighter look, apply shade #1 under brow arch. Buff the shadow to erase any distinct line so that the color fades at the edges.

• Apply Artistry Signature Color® Longwearing Eye Pencil in Black along upper lash line. Use the sponge end to smudge the liner into the roots of lashes.

• Apply one coat of Artistry Signature Eyes Volume Mascara® to the top and bottom lashes.

• Apply Artistry® Automatic EyeBrow Pencil in short strokes to fill in brows where needed.

Step 3 COLOR

• Sweep blush brush over Artistry Signature Color® Blush in Peachy Pink. Apply by placing brush on cheek near hairline by middle of the ear, then sweep forward toward corner of mouth.

• Apply Artistry Signature Color® Sheer Lipstick in Natural Pink #56 to lips.

NOW, GET CREATIVE

"Each woman is an individual like no other. A self-made work of art."- Edith Rehnborg

"Lower levels of lighting call for higher amounts of contrast in your makeup. So focus on highlighting bone structure and defining features."

Step 1 EVEN

• Add shimmer powder or an illuminating formula of multi-tasker along cheekbones, across the forehead, and above your upper lip.

• Sculpt and contour: Use a darker shade of loose or pressed powder. Blend this contouring shade flawlessly by starting at the middle of your ear and blending toward the tip of your nose. Add a little more on the “apple” of your cheek for subtle definition.

Step 2 DEFINE

• Enhance eyes: Refresh the eye area by patting your favorite eye cream around your eye; gently pat remaining excess on fingertips onto eyelids, then buff a shade from an Artistry Signature Color® Eye Shadow Quad over the lid to smooth this makeup. Blend a shimmering neutral shade from lash line to crease. Finish eyes by smudging Artistry Signature Color® Longwearing Eye Pencil along upper and lower lashes. The less perfect, the better.

Step 3 COLOR

• Lastly, choose a brighter shade of lipstick for an evening look.

During the DEFINE step, creating a creamy base allows eye shadow to give a smoky, lasting look.

• Using the back of your hand as a palette, blend a coin-size amount of Artistry Signature Color® Longwearing Eye Pencil with Artistry® Concealer until it creates a creamy base.

• Using a brush or your ring finger, smudge a small amount of this creamy base over one eyelid. Start from the base of the lashes and blend up to the crease. Add more as needed, but work quickly.

• Before the creamy base sets, apply a shade from an Artistry Signature Color® Longwearing Eye Shadow Quad over it; choose a medium or deep shade for a soft, smoky finish.

• Choose a medium shade if it is a daytime smoky eye look.
     - For an evening smoky look, choose a darker, more dramatic shade.

• Start with Artistry Signature Eyes Length & Definition Mascara®. Starting at the base of the lashes then sweeping under and out.

• Follow with one coat of Artistry Signature Eyes Volume Mascara® in the same manner except wiggle the wand at the lash root to create more definition.

• To finish, smudge same Artistry Signature Color® Longwearing Eye Pencil along lower lash line.

• Lastly, apply Artistry Signature Eyes Length & Definition Mascara® over lower lashes.
