Amway Artistry Pro Tips

ARTISTRY Global Makeup Artist Rick DiCecca comments:  “The ARTISTRY Little Black Dress Color Collection is so easy to use. Play your look up or down, mix and match. You really can’t make a mistake.  Little Black Dress’ is the perfect handbag companion to transform your day look to a stunning night look in three simple steps:

1.    Add ‘pearl’ to the inner corner of your eyes and below your brow bone to make your eyes pop

2.    Apply the eye liner end of your brush along your waterline and above your top lashes for definition with a darker shade 

3.    Blend your darker shades in the crease of your eye to add depth and in your outer corner for a cat eye look

Little Black Dress’ is available now and is exclusively available from Amway Ireland. It is priced at €57.70.

My Reviews …

The Little Black Dress Eye Palette is a great palette to have in your collection. The colours are ideal for your everyday ‘day time’ look and versatile enough to use it for your ‘night time’ look. I did find the shades a little too subtle for me at times and to overcome this I just wet the top part of my hand with a few drops of water, wet my eyeshadow brush with it and then brushed my eyeshadow on to it and applied it to my lids … it intensified the colour for me. I love the eyeliner end of the brush, it’s so precise. I use it as mentioned above to help my eyes pop by adding the pearl to the inner corner of my eyes. I also use it to create brow definition by either using the pearl colour alone or mixing the pearl with the sequin colour to add a little brow bone definition and sparkle.

The Signature Colour Sheer Lipstick from the Indigo Skies Collection in Pink Quartz has been my go to colour when I want a break from the nude lipstick that I wear every day. The Lipstick itself is a really complimentary shade of pink, not gaudy, not barbie-sque or burlesque for that matter. It’s creamy in texture and lasts. The packaging is really stylish but very sturdy so although you want to look after it, you don’t need to pamper it and it can be thrown into your bag without the worry that it will open or get ruined.

Both products are a hit with me and I’ll be getting my wear from them this Spring / Summer and after … they’re keepers and this is a recommendation. Artistry is available from Amway Ireland and you can purchase both these products and lots more from their website here www.amway.ie
