Napoleon Perdis is one of my favourite makeup ranges. Spearheaded by the wonderfully named Australian Napoleon:
Napoleon Perdis picked up his first brush at the age of 13 to help his glamorous mother primp for a soiree. Since then the self-taught makeup artist has long dreamed of spreading his glamour gospel. A native of Sydney, Australia, and now based in Los Angeles, Perdis has always sought to democratize the art of makeup, transforming runway and red carpet trends to reality and colour-matching for women of all ages and skin tones.
Till the end of June 2010, Farmers is doing a deal whereby you get the new Napoleon makeup book “Forever Flawless” about looking good at any age for $49.90 AND get a free one hour makeover.
This weekend the deal is even sweeter as there is 15% of all Napoleon makeup at Farmers (as well as some products at even more reduced prices) – and that includes the book.
I popped in today for a lunch hour makeover and was pleased with the results. The consultant explained each step of the process well and there’s definitely elements to pick up and run with. I’ve learned how to apply mascara to get more volume (flick your brush out to the sides), some new contouring tips, and how to do a smoky bronze eye.
Pack includes: Chandelier Shine Lipgloss and matching Nail Polish.
#Available while stocks last. Pack shades may vary between stores. Napoleon Perdis available at selected Farmers stores.
Here, the Queen of Blending makes beautifully lined eyes with a white eyeliner that she makes herself. She uses a MAC liquid medium, but I’ve made my own liquid colour using a Napolean Perdis primer. So you could experiment with also sorts of mediums and colours.
My local Farmer’s had a clearance cosmetic rack, and I found a fabulous Napoleon Perdis eyeshadow in ‘Indian Rose’ for only 10 bucks! (down from $34.)
I’ve been wanting a bright pink eye shadow for a while and spring is a great time to start experimenting with colour.
Here I packed the pink shadow onto my upper lid, blended some purple into the crease of my eye, and light pink on the brow bone below my brows. Then applied the pink to lower lash line with a fine tipped brush.
I also put some white pencil liner on my lower water-line so that the pink didn’t make my eyes look tired and red. (The one I have is Maybelline and I recommend it for your lower water-line to brighten your eyes.)
