FR: What are some great DIY tips you can give consumers who want to make their own products at home to prep their skin before they apply makeup?

JG: A great DIY is to take one spoon of natural honey and one spoon of avocado. Mix them together and apply to the face and neck for 10 minutes. This will rejuvenate the skin and hydrate it, making your skin perfect for makeup.

FR: What are some products you like to use when creating cat eyes?

JG: I love using Make Up For Ever aqua liner. It lasts and it waterproof, my favorite.

JG: The fun thing about makeup is to play with colors. These runways looks are simple because they add color to the eyes. I recommend concentrating on one feature whether it’s the eyes or lips. Have fun and play it up. For the fall, keep dark plum shades in mind for the lips and a simple neutral eye. This could be a great night look but for the day do a color liner. Try a more natural approach like a bronze or a grey and definitely keep the lips soft and pink.

FR: How do we complete our smoky cat eye look?

JG: Add a coral blush. I love Cargo cosmetics. Try beach blush, it’s the perfect coral with a mix of bronzer. Finish with a beautiful lip color like Nars cosmetics in Biscayne Park satin lip pencil.

You can find these all these beauty items and more at your local beauty supplier or local drug store. Will you be rocking some fierce eyes this fall?
