Oh, Jane Fonda, one of my favorite blondes. This is a simple look really. Just remember it is all about the eyes.This is a look that works well with most pale/light to medium complexions with the products mentioned below:

FACE: Apply concealer where needed. For me, this is applied under the eyes and I like Prescriptives Site Unseen Brightening Concealer. Apply a matte foundation like Estee Lauder Fresh Air Makeup Up Base if you like liquid or Maybelline Pure Stay Powder Foundation (not pictured) if you prefer a powder. Cheeks are super sheer with the faintest hint of a flush. Use a tiny bit of Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in Pink Frosting. I love this color and formula for a faintly flushed look.

EYES: Fill in brows with an easy-blending powder and brush into place with a wax. Urban Decay Brow Box is a great product for this. The colors in Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Eyeshadow Quad in Sueded Browns are nice for this eye. Take the lightest shade, a pale beige, and apply all over the eye lid from lash line to brow. Take the medium brown shade and apply from lash  line to crease. In the crease, apply the darkest espresso brown shade and blend with a nice blending brush. Take this same dark shade and apply it to the bottom lash line with a fine brush. Apply more of this shade to the crease and go as dramatic as you feel comfortable with. Next apply a liquid liner such as MAC Liquid Liner in Boot Black. Apply a thick line and wing out slightly. Curl lashes and apply mascara but to get the real deal look, apply a strip of false lashes like Ardell. Coat bottom lashes with mascara.

LIPS: The lips are super nude and almost look like concealer applied over the lips with a balm added. You could use a color like NYX Round Lipstick in Iced Honey or Chambord for a beige-ish nude color or B-52 if you want a little more pink, OK much more pink but still have that 60’s nude lip. Sorry, I have no pic of these but they are in my own collection and I love them for these kind of looks.

I really think that this looks needs a fresh, green, citrus scent such as Prescriptives Calyx. I really need to pick up a new one of these, almost out.

Prescriptives Well Suited fall collection reminds me of Dior’s fall collection last year and a slew of others. The inspiration is menswear and fabric. Once again, masculine chic is in this fall: vests, fedoras, button ups. It’s a bit dandy, Garbo, and 70’s Charlie Girl all in one. I’m not complaining, I love this look for fall fashions. Well Suited collection has those perfect shades for fall and since it is Prescriptives there is a compact/color for all complexions, eye colors, hair colors. The focus for this collection is on the eyes. All limited edition items come in a tweed like packaging. All items are available at Prescriptives.

EYES: There are 3 Eye Compacts that retail for $40. Each compact contains 5 eyeshadows. The Warm compact contains shades of warm beige, warm medium brown, soft olive drab, warm dark brown, and a calm ocean teal. I really think that this compact would be very flattering on blue eyes since the warm shades will provide a nice contrast. The Cool compact contains light pink shimmer, dirty mauve, dusty grey, soft burgundy plum, and a rich eggplant. I think this compact would look amazing on hazel and green eyes. Those cool plum shades will make the green stand out. The Neutral compact contains a light beige, cool light brown, deeper brown shimmer, lead pencil grey, and a matte black. This compact should go with all eye colors. There are 4 shades of the new Long Wearing Kohl Liners. It is like a kohl but with a retractable tip. It retails for $17.50 and comes in Black, Slate, Brown, and Blue. Evidently this liner is supposed to wear nicely on the inner rim of eyes because it is waterproof and smooth. (I never do this, my eyes are too small as is). Lash Envy Mascara has been relaunched for the collection.

LIPS: There are 4 shades (3 LE) of Colorscope Lipcolor for $17.50. There is Posh Honey (creamy latte cream), Posh Ginger (warm copper shimmer), Posh Nude ( a super soft mauve cream), and Posh Pink (creamy light plum berry). Obviously, the lips are sheer/nude for this collection. My favorites are Posh Honey because it is a great lipcolor that goes with a smoky eye and Posh Nude because it is so “everyday”.

FACE: There is a Finishing Powder in Translucent for $28. It is a sheer shimmer pressed powder complexion perfector.

I love Dolly Parton, even made up and fake Dolly Parton. She’s a beautiful gal. I’m really loving her look on her “Hello, I’m Dolly” album cover. It’s a “natural” Dolly, not really how most of her think of her. This is a great look. I love a peachy lip.

FACE: Apply a foundation like Prescriptives Virtual Skin Super Natural Foundation in your shade. Apply concealer if needed to even out the complexion. I like Dior Diorskin Sculpt Concealer for the under eye area. Dust with powder if needed with something like Almay Pure Blends Loose Finishing Powder. Cheeks are peachy perfect. I love Shu Uemura Glow On Blush in Peach 44. It is the perfect matte, peach blush.

EYES: Sculpt brows into place with a clear brow gel. Boots No7 Lash & Brow Perfector is a nice bargain. Apply a nude shadow from lash line to brow. For Dolly’s complexion this would be something like Revlon Matte Eyeshadow in Vintage Lace. Take a medium taupe shade like Covergirl Eye Enhancers in Tapestry Taupe, and blend from lash line to right above the crease. It helps to do this with your eyes open-ish looking ahead. Apply a thin line of brown eyeliner like Estee Lauder Automatic Eye Pencil in Walnut Brown, closely to the top lash line. Apply a few coats of a lengthening mascara to top and bottom lashes. I would use a Dark Brown or a Black/Brown such as Almay One Coat Nourishing Lengthening Mascara.

LIPS: Lips are peach, pearly, and nude. For a look like Dolly’s try Lancome Le Rouge Absolu Lipstick in Nectariche, one of my favorite shades ever. If you are a bit deeper or tan, try Covergirl Continuous Color Lipstick in Bronzed Peach Shimmer.

I feel I can safely say that pink is the hot color for spring 2009. And if it isn’t pink then it is coral. Prescriptives managed to use both of these hot shades for their spring look thinking about the cool and warm undertones of their customers. Just like the name says, In Bloom, this collection is inspired by pretty blooming flowers. The collection isn’t very “exciting” or original as far as inspiration goes because we all think of flowers when we think of spring. But, they are nice and it is nice to have a little bit of color after months of gloom.

EYES: There are 4 new Eye Color Duos. They come in a pretty pink and coral package. All are inspired by bold blooms. There is Sunflower for the Y/O gals ( I believe the most common undertone). It is a flattering shimmery beige and bronze that will really make blue eyes pop. There is Marigold for R/O. It is a warm, coraly pink duo shimmer. There is Petunia for R. It has a soft pink and reddish, coppery hard to explain shade. And there is Lily for the B/R group. It is a pretty soft pink and lavender shimmer. I think it is what the model above is wearing. I bet it would look awesome on hazel or green eyes. All of the duos retail for $24. Two Perfect Every Line Gel Eyeliner has been relaunched in Cocoa and Eggplant. These retail for $17.50 and are a really nice product. Two Softlining Eye Pencils have been relaunched in Jet (black) and Cocoa. These retail for $17.50.

LIPS: There are 4 new Lipshine glossy lipsticks. There is Zinnia for Y/O. It is a sheer and shiny coral. There is Posy for R/0 and it is a sheer warm hot pink. There is Tulip for R and it is a sheer blue raspberry. There is Tuberose for B/R and it is a sheer and lovely soft rose. These retail for $17.50 and create a perfect and effortless, one step pout.

FACE: There are 2 Cheek Color Duos. They are powders with two shades and they come in the same compact as the eyeshadows but they have a pretty flower imprint. There is one for warm skins with two shimmery shades or coral and one for cool skins with two pretty pink shimmer shades. These retail for $24.

Overall the collection is “fresh” and I do really like the Lipshines because they are so easy to wear. They are very “work” and “weekend” friendly. The eyeshadows blushes are OK but they don’t blow my mind. I do like numerous options becaues right now my hair is dyed red and these pinks aren’t always so friendly. At least I have a coral option.

Seriously, I am. It gives me an instant “lift”, if only they made bras… Anyways, I am a sucker for “brightening” products. My skin can never look too glowy in my opinion. So that was my initial attraction to this product. I usually don’t like concealers with brushes. They tend to get goopy and I don’t use the brush tip anyways. I didn’t let this keep me from this product. I still twist it up and put it on the back of my hand and use my fingers. I like how the heat from my fingers “melts” the product into my skin. This stuff looks so seamless on me. No creepy lines, no dark circles. It is amazing. And like most Prescriptives products it comes in a lot of colors. I love this stuff because it makes my eye area feel “tight”. I know that sounds uncomfortable but it isn’t. I feel awake and like I just used a caffeine gel under my eyes. This stuff claims to firm skin and minimize the appearance of lines. I really do believe that it has. It is like an eye cream and a concealer in one. It is said that 84% of women noticed an improvement with it. Count me as one too. I get less sleep but look more awake. I have no complaints with this product. It is long wearing, water-resistant ( a big plus when in the rainy Seattle weather), it covers nicely and never is drying. I can deal with the brush when a product is this fab. Plus, level 2 warm matches my skin perfectly. I love this stuff. It retails for $22 and is available at most department stores and nordstrom.com.
