i recently has the opportunity to interview Max Factor makeup artist Jake Bailey, and pick his brain about his favorite trends, how we ladies can update our makeup look for the season, common makeup mistakes, and more!
Jake was kind enough to not only give his advice, but also recommends the (inexpensive) Max Factor products he would use to create certain looks!
there is a lot of info, so this will be a mini-series-- keep visiting BGM for more with Jake!
my first question question was what is your favorite makeup trend for this season?
JB: "i love a metallic eye paired with a nude lip. it is a great night-time look for winter".
ahh, a man after my own heart--hubby, if you read this, you know what i mean!-- i love metalics, and i always focus on my eyes when it comes to makeup looks.
here’s Jake's advice on how to get this sparkling winter look:
max factor by beauty girl
*play up eyes using the MAX Factor Vivid Impact Eye Shadows in Two Cents. apply the dark bronze end of the duo all over the eye lid, up to the crease. follow by lining the eye lid with the gold end of the duo and then blending the two shades together for a multidimensional sheen.
*to finish the eye look apply 3-4 coats of a dark black mascara to the upper and lower lashes for a look, like MAX Factor Volume Couture Mascara.
*to compliment the eye, use a nude gloss such as MAX Factor MAXalicious Glaze Lip Gloss in Weekend Getaway or Champagne Bath for super shine with a hint of shimmer.
*for a twist on the nude lip try one of the subtle pink/red-based glosses. the color will still look very neutral which complements the metallic eye, but adds just a bit of extra drama to the look!
next time, Jake will give some simple tips on how to update your makeup for winter! stay tuned...
