Every year we see a series of beauty trends. Whether it’s a bold statement lip or dewy skin, we see the trend repeated on the runways, magazines or on the street. I’ve put together a series of hair and makeup looks from this year and my take on them. Below is a “how to” executed by my incredible hair and makeup team. Revlon Makeup Director Melanie Burnicle and Matrix ambassador Lores Giglio. The photography was taken by the insanely talented Carlo Fernandes.

The Sultry Sex Bomb

Wet look with black smoky eye


How to :

Eyes: Use the Revlon Shadow link in Onyx and work into the socket line and under the lower lash line. Dampen a sponge applicator or brush and place in the black shade of the Revlon PhotoReady Primer, Shadow + Sparkle palette in Eclectic. Press into the lid from the lash-line to the socket-line, then work under the lower lash-line. Revlon PhotoReady Primer, Shadow + Sparkle palette in eclectic is the hero for this look. Define the upper and lower lash-line with Revlon ColorStay Creme Gel Liner in black. Line the inner rim / waterline with Revlon ColorStay Creme Gel in black top and bottom. This can be tricky, practice makes perfect. This really gives great intensity to the eye. No visible skin on the inner rim anywhere. Apply Revlon Ultra volume mascara to top and bottom lashes. Apply Revlon volumize lasher in V04.

Brows: Revlon Brow Fantasy in Brunette

Cheeks: Use Revlon PhotoReady Insta-fix Makeup, use a shade 3 times darker than the natural skin tone, and create a cram contour under the cheekbone only coming down about half way along the cheekbone. Use Revlon Skinlights in Barelights and pat in with your finger on the high side of the cheekbone.

Lips: Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Ingenue

How to:

Step 1 – Wash hair with Matrix Rock it Texture shampoo/conditioner to help with the textured mid-lengths to ends.

Step 2 – Scrunch blast dry working with the natural hair texture. Spray a generous amount of Matrix Turbo Dryer on the roots/mid-lengths. Part the hair with a wide tooth comb, and direct the hair up and back off the face tucking behind the ears.

Session Tip – Spray Matrix Turbo Dryer on neck and shoulders for the extra high shine. Think outside the SQUARE.
