|Napoleon Perdis, celebrity makeup artist and creator of Napoleon Perdis Cosmetics, shows you how to keep your look fresh and simple this spring.|
|Inspired by the upcoming Summer Olympics and an East meets West theme, Napoleon
shows you step by step how to get complexion perfection!
|1. Not to Prime is a CRIME!
Apply primer as a pre-makeup base to help makeup look better and stay on longer.
Try: Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Primer
It smoothes the skin, readies it for makeup application, and helps produce a flawless finish. It’s made with calming botanicals such as chamomile, which softens redness, and yarrow extract, which reactivates the beneficial ingredients in your skincare and foundation. Pure Vitamin E smoothes skin texture and adds hydration, keeping skin looking fresh and flawless!
|2. Apply Mascara First!
ALWAYS apply mascara at the beginning of your makeup routine. This gives direction to the rest of your look and adds shape and definition to the eye.
Try: Napoleon Perdis Long Black Mascara.
This innovative formula includes a double shot of black pigment to set the stage for intense dramatic eyes, as well as natural beeswax and pure allantoin to fortify every hair. The bent wand applicator acts as a built-in lash curler for ultimate lash control. Now you're ready for your close-up!
|3. Create A Flawless Finish
Banish unwanted blemishes and give your skin a perfectly porcelain look with foundation.
Try: Napoleon Perdis China Doll Foundation
This lightweight, long wearing luxe liquid formula combines the benefits of a self-setting foundation and powder in one. It’s a liquid to matte finish. An alternative to this is Napoleon Perdis Conceal It Patrol, which allows you to still achieve the matte, flawless look if less coverage is desired.
|4. Go For a Hint of Tint
Instantly transform your skin this spring with a translucent touch of color. Napoleon recommends a matte cream blush to leave skin looking radiant all day.
Try: Napoleon Perdis China Doll Color Veil.
It can also be used on lips and lids.
|5. Use a Dual Lipstick and Gloss
The combination of a lipstick and gloss leaves lips looking truly beautiful.
Try: Napoleon Chandelier Shine Gloss and Polish Pack in High Society
It will leave you with a super smooth — never sticky — long-lasting shine.
