This is my Cheryl Ladd playing the role of Malibu Barbie look. It is sun-kissed and carefree, easy to wear and perfect for summer.

Face: First even out the complexion. Apply a tinted moisturizer such as Benefit You Rebel in your shade (only 2 to choose from). If you want a bit more of a bronze look, mix a little or lot (depending on your desired level of bronze) of Benefit Talk To The Tan. Apply concealer to areas of need. L’Oreal Visible Lift Concealer is nice for dark circles. If you have a tendency to get oily, apply a loose powder such as Neutrogena Healthy Skin Loose Powder. If your skin is normal to dry, you can live without powder, this look needs to look “healthy” and not cakey. Try a blotting sheet throughout the day instead such as Neutrogena Shine Control Blotting Sheets. Apply a coral-ish bronze blush to cheeks such as Revlon Beyond Natural Blush in Peach.

EYES: Brows are simple. Just brush into place with a brow gel like Amazing Cosmetics Brow Gel. For the eyes use L’Oreal Eye Shadow Quad in Milla’s Blues. Apply the lightest shade, a pale beige, from lashline to brows. Use the warm medium brown (#2) from lashline to crease. In the crease, blend the next darkest brown (#3). In the outermost “crease” area in a “V” shade, blend the darkest shade in the quad. Blend until it looks seamless. Take the darkest shade and dip a fine, angled lining brush into it. Line the bottom lash line. If you feel more “depth” is needed. Line top lashes, very closely to the lashline, with L’Oreal Le Kohl Pencil Smooth Defining Eyeliner in Cafe. Curl lashes and apply a few coats of mascara to top and bottom lashes. You may want to use a volumizing formula such as L’Oreal Voluminous.

Lips: Lips are sheer with just a kiss of orange/coral. Apply Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencils in Genre, a super sheer shade with a wow! hint of orange.

The skin is bronzed. You can kind of cheat a tan with Sue Devitt Tinted Body Bronzer. It has a very pretty scent of frangipani. A nice “matching” summer scent is Lucy B. Pink Frangipani Fragrance,  available in a travel friendly roll-on.

Who doesn’t want a completely made up look every know and then? I love Tanya’s look here. This angel is all made up and it is all about product. Every feature features color. I love it.

FACE: Even out skintone with a foundation such as NARS Balanced Foundation in your shade. Apply concealer where needed. I like the creaminess of Prescriptives Flawless Skin Total Protection Concealer. I like to apply it with fingertips since the warmth of your body helps it to melt and look natural.  Apply a light dusting of Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear Loose Powder in your shade. This helps with shine and wear. Don’t be scared of the blush. You want a flush and the only way you can get it is with a bold blush. Try NARS Blush in Desire, a matte hot pink. This is one of my favorite shades ever. Take a large fluffy brush and swipe up the cheekbones. Layer as much as you need depending on your skintone.

EYES: Apply a brow powder such as Bare Escentuals Brow Color in your shade. For the eyes, use Estee Lauder Signature Eyeshadow Quad in Blue Smoke. Apply the lightest gray, blue shade from lashline to just above the crease. Apply the slightly deeper shade, the one next to the lightest in the compact from lashline to crease. Apply the carkest shade in the crease, blend well. Take the darkest shade and it apply it along the bottom lashline for a slightly smoky look. Line eyes (top and bottom) with Avon Glimmersticks Waterproof Eyeliner in Midnight Blue. Coat lashes with a mascara with extra volume. Something like Avon Supershock Mascara in Black. Apply a few coats to bottom and top lashes.

LIPS: Line lips with a pink lipliner such as L’Oreal Infalliable Never Fail Lipliner Pencil in Pink. Apply a blue based pink lipstick to lips, try a moisturizing formula such as Covergirl Continuous Color Lipstick in Pink Chic Shimmer. Apply a hot pink lip gloss over the lipstick. Try Lancome Color Fever Lip Gloss in Volcanic Pink.

This cool toned look works best with blue, green, and brown eyes (any eye color really). Those with “cooler” undertones, blondes, brunettes, and gray hair.

Sometimes you just want a “natural” makeup look. It is more of a “neutral” look because you wear cosmetics but nothing “screams” out. I really love this look, sometimes. I usually will do one bold thing so it is nice to have a 70’s laid-back but polished look. Pair this with a big floppy hat and you’re ready for summer. I’m using Revlon cosmetics to create this look. They’ve recently came out with a “Beyond Natural” line that really reminds me of some 70’s cosmetic’s trends.

First even out the complexion with a light foundation or powder depending on your skin type. The Beyond Natural Skin Matching Makeup is nice for normal to dry skins and the Mineral Foundation is nice for normal or oily skins. Apply concealer where needed, try Beyond Natural. It also has a nice highlighting cream which is a great addition for this look. Jaclyn’s skin is “glossy” above the cheekbones and down the nose. Normal to dry skins should blend this on the cheek bones and down the nose. Cheeks are warm. Apply Beyond Natural Blush Bronzer in Nude. There are also darker shades for darker skintones, try Plumberry.

Brows are natural and shouldn’t be filled in. Apply a brow gel if you have super unruley brows. Otherwise, leave them be. Eyes are simple. Take a large fluffy brush and apply Matte Eyeshadow in Vintage Lace, soft beige, from lashline to brows. Using a light hand, blend Matte Eyeshadow in Rich Sable, chocolate brown, into the crease. If you are super pale, you could leave the Rich Sable step out. To give the illusion of thicker lashes, line the top lashline with a soft black liner pencil such as Matte Luxurious Color Kohl Eyeliner in Black Truffle. Apply the line thinly and use a soft hand. Apply mascara, a bunch of layers to top lashes and one to the bottom. Try a product like Beyond Natural Defining Mascara in Black.

Take a bit of the highlighting cream included with the concealer and dab it over the top lip and blend upward.This will give a “pouty” look and keep color from running. Apply Beyond Natural Cream Lipgloss in Spice or Deep Spice for deeper skintones (both are warm nudes). It is shiny and provides medium coverage. (If you must have a lip liner try, Colorstay Liner for Lips in Nude.)

It sounds like a lot but it isn’t. A look like this should take less than 10 minutes, especially if you leave out lip liner and brows.

Don't use my credit card at Sephora!

I read that Too Faced was thinking about making a Smurf makeup collection not too long ago. I was really hoping they wouldn’t go there. I’m not much of one for these cross-over product gimmicks. I mean the Smurfs have always kind of creeped me out. There’s like one girl in the entire village and she comes across as a slut. Plus, I didn’t really understand it watching it as a child and I felt bad for the kitty cat. I didn’t know why they were so mean to that ruff looking kitty. And there was that one mentally retarded smurf that everyone was mean too, and they had an odd language/idiolect. However, they live in mushrooms. Being a mushroom hunter I do think that is pretty cool. But, I know that they only lived in mushrooms because only drug heads and little hippie children watched the show.

This Smurfette Signature Collection contains the following products:

FACE: There is a So Smurfy Illumination Face Powder which is a blend of complexion enhancing color-correcting shades in a smurf paper compact. I have to admit that this is kind of cute. I am a sucker for powders as art. I mainly purchase them and look at them and well, never use them.

EYES: There are two new shades of Smurfy-Eyed Liquid Eyeliner in Feel’n Smurfy which is a multi-colored glitter and Smurf You which is a bright blue which I love. The top has Miss Smurfette on top, looking bashful as always. There is a So Smurfy Eye Shadow Quad. It has two beautiful taupey brown shimmers, shimmery pink, and a shimmery blue. It is also in that smurf packaging.

LIPS: There is a Mood Swing Emotionally Activated Lip Gloss in a Smurf packaging. This is supposed to work with your “body” heat and swing from a blue shimmer to a pink. I never try these because I am scared that it will “swing” too much and if I was mad at somebody they would know because my lips would turn cobalt blue or something. Silly, I know. I am sure this stuff just turns pink on everybody.

I don’t think I am going to “go there” and purchase any of these items. There aren’t many cartoons I would endorse on cosmetics, just Jem, really. I am a fan of Smurf blue and if there was a liquid liner truly in that shade I would “go” for it.

I’m a mega Wonder Woman fan: from comic books to the hokey TV show. Lynda Carter is one beautiful gal and she totally rocked the Wonder Woman look. It’s a really “fresh” late 70’s look. I’m sure you’re bound to get a little flushed when kicking so much ass. You know fighting for our rights, in your satin tights.

To get this wonderful look, apply a tinted moisturizer. I like Lancome Bienfait Multi-Vital Teint Tinted Moisturizer. Dab concealer where necessary, I like Dior Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen for under eye circles. Dust a loose powder over face to keep shine under control. Fighting villains, now don’t look too glossy! I really like Guerlain Les Violettes Matte Touch Powder, yes souly for the scent. Wonder Woman’s brows are killer and stenciled. Fill in brows with a pencil such as Dior Powder Brow Pencil in Black, use a stencil if you must. I love harsh brows… Dust a nude eyeshadow from lashline to brows. Use something like Lancome Color Design Eye Shadow Single in Filigree which is a sheer shimmering warm nude. Now blend something like Lancome Color Design Eye Shadow Single in Ciel du Soir , a matte pebble gray, from lashline to crease. Line eyes with a liquid liner such as Lancome Art Liner in Noir, creating a “cat eye” effect. Apply false lashes and/or tons of black mascara. Dust cheeks with a sheer peachy blush such as NARS Powder Blush in Amour. It adds just enough flush. I love Wonder Woman’s flushed lips. Use the new Lipstick Queen Medieval Lipstick which adds a stained reddish flush to lips. So lovely! As far as scent goes, I have no idea what Wonder Woman would wear, I would think of something femme but fresh and perhaps unisex, something strong and full bodied. I was thinking of something like Guerlain Vol de Nuit. It’s really hard to decide, please comment, would she wear something leathery? Something vetivery? Anyways, at least I have her makeup down.
