Mary Kay Makeover Day 2014 ~ Highlighting Delicate Details! {Review & Giveaway}

4:24 PM

I am not a HUGE makeup wearer. Ever since I became a stay at home mom and ditched my career as an Administrative Assistant, makeup has become something that I wear for special occasions...weddings, dates with hubby and other events. I won't say that I look frumpy all day long but I may start wearing a little makeup to make myself look a bit more presentable. With Spring right around the corner (I believe that if I keep saying that, Spring will show up eventually!) it is time to set some new goals and one of those goals is to try to look pretty and put-together on a semi-daily basis. Spring is the time for new beginnings and getting a makeover is definitely a way to jump start the spring season.
Mary Kay had their Makeover Day on Saturday and judging by their Facebook page, there were loads of ladies enjoying makeovers! My weekend exploded and with the time change, my entire family was in overdrive so I didn't get to do much that day...but that doesn't mean I can't do something on another day, right?

Delicate Details was a theme that was featured this year and once again, Mary Kay's Celebrity Makeup Artist Virginia Linzee had some great tips and tricks to get women looking their best! Here are her suggestions, complete with a photo to give you an idea of what she means...

  • Apply Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color in Hazelnut to the creases and on the eyelids. Layer on Moonstone, taking it up to the brows. Apply Sparkling White as a pop of color in the middle of the eyelids.
  • Line upper and lower lash lines with Mary Kay® Deep Brown Eyeliner.
  • Apply Mary Kay® Lash Love® Lengthening™ Mascara in I ♥ black.
  • Define brows with Mary Kay® Brow Definer Pencil in Brunette or Mineral Eye Color in Espresso.
  • Brush on Mary Kay®  Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush.
  • Apply Mary Kay® Creme Lipstick in Red. Blot, then reapply at the center of the lips.
I was sent some products that would be used in the 2014 Mary Kay Makeover Day and wanted to share them with you quickly...they are all so lovely!!
The products you see pictured above are:
Translucent Loose Powder
Foundation Primer
Makeup Finishing Spray
Deep Brown Eyeliner
Lash Love Mascara
Facial Highlighting Pen
Brunette Brow Definer Pencil
Compact Mini
Red Rouge Creme Lipstick
Shy Blush Mineral Cheek Color
Light-Medium and Dark-Medium Bronzing Powder
Moonstone, Hazelnut and Sparkling White Mineral Eye Color
I'll start off first with the Finishing Spray and Foundation Primer. These two products are a favorite of mine and when I wear makeup, I do use them! The Foundation Primer basically sets the stage for the rest of your makeup. It is silky and glides on smooth and gives your foundation a smooth surface to adhere to. The Finishing Spray is designed for when you are all done with your makeup and it just "seals" everything in place...which is nice.
The Translucent Loose Powder is designed to eliminate shade matching and also, to control shine. Personally, I have oily skin that gets shiny so this is definitely a great powder for me! It is soft and silky, perfect for any skin type!
I have always loved using Mary Kay's eye makeup products. Each one wears beautifully and although I am not a fan of eye liners and pencils, Mary Kay's are super easy to use and look great once applied. I LOVE the Lash Love Mascara too...it doesn't clump, isn't thick and goopey and stays put for as long as you need it to. I don't buy any other brands of Mascara because this does everything I need it to do!
The Mineral Cheek color is always beautiful. I prefer lighter shades and was running out of my current blush so this was wonderful to get. I honestly don't love the Bronzing Powder as my skin is so incredibly light but it is so shimmery and adds a nice touch to my look. I also like that it comes in different shades.
When I wrote about the eye products previously, I almost forgot to mention the lovely Mineral Eye Colors! These blend so nicely together and really do complement one another. Anytime I use this eye color, I love the end result. It looks great and truly enhances my eyes perfectly.
Now, the Facial Highlighting Pen is something I have never used before and was very interested in because it is designed to hide imperfections and add brightness to shadowy areas on your face such as under the eyes. I love that it is oil-free as well...I don't need any additional oil on my skin!
Last but certainly not least, I am just in love with the Creme Lipstick! Honestly, I am not crazy about the dark red color but on the right person, it looks simply stunning! Whenever I use this lipstick it wears for a long time and you really don't need to do many touch-ups. I also love that it doesn't dry my lips out. In the winter months and early spring months, dry skin and lips seem to be prevalent with me so it is nice to have a good lipstick that doesn't contribute to the drying, but rather moisturizes and nourishes.

So, it seems that having a Mary Kay Makeover is a good idea to help welcome Spring. My skin is a wreck right now (thank you, pregnancy hormones!!!) so once it clears up a bit more, I cannot wait to give myself a full-blown makeover!
Do you want to try and achieve a great makeover look too? Mary Kay has offered to giveaway a Makeover Day Prize Pack to one of you which will contain all the products I received for this review! Here are your entry options...
