I had a wonderful opportunity to be part of the Conde Nast Influencer program in which I have received box full of Mary Kay products, that would help me re-create on of their three Holiday makeup looks.
I am very excited to show you my version of Mary Kay Silver-Screen Siren look, which focuses on plum lips and subtle cheek color, and tell you which products I've enjoyed using the most.
How to create Silver-Screen Siren look:
First I applied Mary Kay Eye Primer and then using Cream Eye/Concealer Brush I patted Cream Eye Color in Apricot Twist (pretty gold shade) to the entire lid. Next using a Blending Blush I applied the purple shade from Mary Kay At Play in On The Horizon eyeshadow trio on my crease and then I darkened it up with the chocolate-brown shade as well. Last I used the lightest shade concentrating it on the inner corner and middle section of my eyelid. I applied Lash Primer and Lash Love Mascara.
First I applied light layer of transparent Lip Primer, then outlined my lips with Lipliner in Plum and last but not least applied True Dimensions Lipstick in Mystic Plum.
I used Mary Kay Highlighting Pen under my eyes and around my nose and a little bit on my chin. Next I applied Mineral Cheek Color in Sparkling Cider and Shy Blush. I finish the look using Translucent Loose Powder to set my face makeup.
While trying out all of the products over the weekend, I found 6 that became my favorite right away. I will start with the Mary Kay compact that contains two blushes: Sparkling Cider and Shy Blush. Both blushes are just gorgeous. Sparkling Cider is peachy-brown shade with subtle shimmer. It gives my skin beautiful glow and works great as a blush and bronzer. Shy Girl is a close dupe to Nars Orgasm with beautiful satin, glowy finish. I adore both not only because of their lovely shades but also because they have a great pigmentation, soft texture and they blend effortlessly.

True Dimensions Lipstick in Mystic Plum is a gorgeous berry-plum shade that has a very creamy texture and almost glossy finish. It glides on the lips like a lip butter but at the same time it has amazing pigmentation. I've worn this lipstick few times already and what really made me fall in love with this product is that it doesn't feel drying on the lips at all. Like never. Also Mystic Plum has such a rich, beautiful shade and the subtle glossy finish makes this lipstick a must have!
