This season of Lifetime’s Project Runway shines with the introduction of a new beauty sponsor, Mary Kay®.  Led by Global Makeup Artist, Luis Casco, innovative looks are created off-stage in the Mary Kay Color Design Studio.  A recent stand-out was the “Emerald Smoke” look.  According to Casco, “Green is one of the hottest shades for fall and I love how it brightens any color eyes!”  Afraid to try?  So were we — until we used the following cheat-sheet and watched the brand’s how-to video (here).

Eyes:  For high-impact, wearable color, Casco first layered three shades of green  Eye Color (Meadow Grass, Emerald and Lime) over a cream eye color base.  Lips:  To balance bright green smoky eyes with well-defined dark lips, Casco used Mary Kay® Lip Liner in Cappuccino before applying Mary Kay® True Dimensions Lipstick in Mystic Plum.  Face:  When sporting bold eyes and lips, Casco kept the simple, blending  Mary Kay® Cream Blush in Cranberry with a clean Mary Kay® Liquid Foundation Brush.

Mary Kay is offering thirty Beauty Undercover Subscribers an opportunity to win its Emerald Smoke Look, featuring Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color in Emerald, Mary Kay® True Dimensions Lipstick in Mystic Plum, and Mary Kay® Cream Blush in Cranberry (retail $39), simply by liking them on Facebook and entering here.  This SWAG Alert is open to Subscribers 18 years or older with a valid US mailing address only.  Delivery is anticipated within 3-4 weeks.

HALLE BERRY SHINES AT THE EMMYS!

PAIRING SMOKE WITH BLUSH!

REVLON Global Brand Ambassador, Halle Berry, was spotted at the Emmy Awards last night, pairing a smokey eye with a subtle blushed lip. Inspired by the soft dusty rose tone of her Elie Saab gown, Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist, Kara Yoshimoto Bua, created a warm bronzed smokey eye.  “To create a softer and sexier smokey eye, stay way from dark greys and blacks and use warm browns and burgundys with red undertones that compliment all skintones,” she warns.

To achieve the smokey look, Bua chose REVLON ColorStay 16H Eye Shadow Quad in Adventurous and PhotoReady Primer, Shadow + Sparkle in Metropolitan for the lids with CHANEL Crayon Sourcils Sculpting Eye Brow Pencil in Blond for the brows.  And to accentuate Berry’s luscious lips, Bua applied REVLON’s new ColorBurst Lacquer Balm in Ingenue, topped with CHANEL Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in Sweet Beige.

KHLOÉ RETURNS TO THE DARK SIDE!

We love Khloé Kardashian’s recent transformation! Now a raven-beauty, the reality star debuted her darker ‘do on Instagram.  Coveted colorist, Tracey Cunningham, of the uber-hip Mèche Salon, was responsible for Khloé’s return to the dark side.  Ironically, it has been the brunette-to-blonde metamorphosis that has been trending in Hollywood.  With celebrities such as Lena Dunham, Azealia Banks, Maggie Gyllenhaal, lightening their locks, Kloé’s new look (also adopted by Margot Robbie and Chloe Moretz) is quite refreshing!

For a complete recap of colorful transformations, please check out a roundup in the Telegraph.
