TBD OBSESSION: JEWELMINT

As a makeup artist designing looks for my clients, I always get my inspiration from what they’re going to wear (like we all do!). Sometimes I do the classic pairing (red dress with a red lip) and other times I like to rebel a little against the obvious (red dress with a pink/orange lip). Really it’s all about our moods that day… and the same goes with jewelry. Accessories are the perfect way to further your form of expression and can really make an outfit come alive. And jewelry is another amazing source of inspiration for your makeup and can be tied together the same way you’d match a red shoe with a red bag or clash a lace top with spiked earrings. Here are our latest four obsessions from Kate Bosworth + Cher Coulter’s Jewelmint line and how you can make a statement together with your makeup:

BRIGHT STATEMENT EARRINGS (MATCH IT): This is an occasion where you’ll want to match it with your lip color. It doesn’t have to be the same color, it just also has to be bright. Try these fun Thunderbird Earrings paired with a bright matte hot pink lipstick, then balance the lip with a soft gold shadow.

BOHEMIAN RING (CLASH IT): Yes the colors are bright but the feel is hippie and boho, so don’t match the colors but clash it instead by understating your makeup. Keep everything light + airy by swapping foundation with a tinted moisturizer and add a sweep of bronzer for a “I’ve been hanging at SXSW all day” kind of look, perfect for this Dahlia Blossom Ring.

ART DECO NECKLACE (MATCH IT): Here’s another case where I’d match the retro necklace with retro makeup for a chic + timeless look. So wing that liner and really fill in your brows for a strong look perfect with this Shanghai Eclipse Necklace.

MIXED METALS RINGS (CLASH IT): The obvious choice would be to pull the gold + silver from the Yves Rings and match it with your eyeshadow. But something about that feels a little too contrived… so leave the lids bare and highlight your lashes instead by using a natural-bristled mascara wand for a full and soft look. Then add a peachy glow directly along your cheekbones to keep everything earthy yet ethereal.

RED CARPET BREAKDOWN

Last year I had the pleasure of heading up the make-up department for my client Krysten Ritter’s film Life Happens, that also stars Kate Bosworth and Rachel Bilson (and our very own Lauren has a cameo in it!).  So as you can guess it was a dream job for me to do their make-up every day for it!  It just premiered this month at the L.A. Film Festival (can’t wait for all of you to see it!) and Kate represented in style in a hot pink Richard Nicholl slip dress with nude Chloe heels and the Windsor bracelet from her Jewelmint line. Here’s how you can re-create this simple look I did for her.

To begin, Kate and I quickly decided we wanted the make-up to feel soft and light and not compete with the dress.  Remember to let your fashions make the statement while your make-up merely defines and accentuates your own natural beauty… and just because you wear a hot pink dress doesn’t mean you should be matchy-matchy and wear hot pink lipstick!  I opted for a sheer raspberry-tinted lip balm for a hint of pink that instantly yet effortlessly is feminine and sweet.  I paired it with a dusty-rose cream blush as a warm complement to the cool tone of the lip (heat it up between your fingers before swirling on the apples of your cheeks then blend the edges with a sponge).  I chose an eyeshadow that was almost the same color as her skin with a little shimmer in it, skipped eye liner then spent time and effort coating and separating each of her top lashes by wiggling and pulling the wand in upward strokes (then skipped mascara on the bottom lashes).  Lastly I filled in her brows one shade darker to anchor everything.

Super easy and breezy, ladies!  So all you’ll need to replicate Kate’s pretty-in-pink look this summer is these five items: raspberry lip balm, dusty-rose cream blush, skin-tone color eyeshadow, brow liner and mascara.  Oh and her super delicate and vintage-inspired Windsor bracelet!  Love!
