Day 24: Foxy Advent Calendar Tip Of The Day

slide_24_2092059aJenny Frankel is a beauty legend creator and you have probably worn at least one of the products that this chemical engineer helped to create at some point in your life (Lipglass anyone?). Her business acumen, her know how around a chemistry lab and love affair with the beauty industry helped birth a new product line that is genius in it’s simplicity. If you read the Day 20 post, you have already met her daughters and muses, Ally and Taylor. Their approach to makeup was fresh and natural, and together with their mom they made a user friendly line that is beautiful for all ages called NUDESTIX. Heck, I am almost (gulp) 40 and find this line enchanting because of it’s effortless application and natural, yet finished look. Here is the Day 24 tip from Jenny:

“For an instant lift that takes seconds – use your pencil as a highlighter. I like to apply NUDESTIX Magnetic Eye Color in Angel under and above my brow bone, on my cheek bones, down the centre of my nose, bow of my lips and centre of my bottom lip. Just draw and smudge and I look immediately fresh and brighter.”

In the darkest days on winter I will definitely try anything to look fresher and brighter. Thanks for the easy tip Jenny!

So Foxes, do you use a highlighter? Where do you like to apply it? Do share, and stay tuned for the last tip tomorrow along with a giveaway!

Day 20: Foxy Advent Calendar Tip Of The Day

Well my Foxy Friends, we are only five days away from the big day! I trust that you have most of your shopping done… yeah I know, neither do I! Well maybe today’s tip will help you decide on a stocking stuffer for one of your Foxy Friends.

Ally and Taylor Frankel are sisters and the inspiration/ founders behind NUDESTIX. This brand is a simple collection of easy-to-use makeup crayons that cover all the bases and give you a fresh-faced, nude look that works for all faces, that you can apply in all places. Enriched with skin-saving vitamins, antioxidants and moisturizers, each multipurpose NUDESTIX is loaded with just enough colour to go nude, but better. Here is a tip from Ally and Taylor:

_ADL8598-R2-F“Smokey eye does not have to mean shades of black. Smokey neutrals are the new black for the eye. Neutrals make a great smokey look for both day and night! Smokey, luminous, sheer washes of neutral gold’s, plums, taupe’s, browns, greys and even smudgy black where you can see your skin is on trend.

We like to use a black, bronze and gold eye cream based eye color that’s super blend able, fast and easy to apply a no-makeup makeup eye that looks just slept in. We like to use concealer first all over the eye as a base; then use your highlighting pencil all over lid, use black on the water line and take your finger to smudge it slightly outside of the waterline and beneath the eye for #iwokeuplikethis look! Try the Nudestix #GILTYLOVE holiday eye kit featuring the Magnetic Eye Colour in Night, Twilght and Gilt.”

 

Well said ladies! It is refreshing to see a neutral smokey eye and I think we are all a little tired of trying to perfect the smokey eye of the past with the shades of black as you mentioned.

How about you Foxes, do you or will you be trying a neutral smokey eye for yourself? I can’t wait to try this look!
