As many of you know, Im a big fan of Josie Maran Cosmetics. A few days ago, while in LA I went over to glam Josie up for the Global Green USA Pre Oscar Party. I did her makeup using only Josie Maran products and we even filmed the whole makeup application for you! 😉 Stay tuned for the makeup video/tutorial! Xo Mario
Josie Maran recently sent me some goodies from her environmentally freindly makeup line and and I’m LOVING it! I first heard of Josie’s makeup when I was in Miami and searching for new and different makeup remover wipes. At Sephora, one of the girls recommended the Bear Naked Wipes by Josie Maran. They smell really nice, are made with healty and natural ingredients and your skin feels fresh and clean after wiping with them. Oh, and a portion of every package goes to protecting polar bears! 😉
You may recognize Josie Maran from her successful career as a top model. She was the face of Maybelline for nearly a decade, featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for three years in a row and she was also a GUESS girl! Needless to say, top models like herself know their stuff when it comes to makeup because of all the years working with and learning from amazing makeup artists, day in and day out. Trust me, they’ve got some tricks up their sleeves, LOL.
The bronzy packaging for Josie Maran Cosmetics is one the nicest that I’ve seen out there – sleek, simple and lightweight. I’m going to share some of my favorite products from the line and help spread Josie’s philosophy – “luxury with a conscience.”
Finger Paints in Sweet – You can use your fingers to appy these shimmery colors to eyes, lips and cheeks! Apply the lightest shade under your brow bone and to the center of your lip to highlight.
Eye Shadow in Beach – This eye shadow may be my new favorite color right now. It’s a shimmery champagne or pale sand shade. Looks gorgeous on the eyelids and you can apply it wet or dry. Texture is velvety. Love it.
Cream Blush in Sunset – This is a coral shade cream blush that glides on sheer and looks natural. I love it on the apples of cheeks. For a super natural look, dab some on your lips and blend.
Argan Oil – This is a light-weight oil grown organically in Morocco packed with tons of Vitamin E and fatty acids. For a dewy look, apply to the apples of your cheeks and/or cheekbones. Soften and heal your cuticles with it, or put it on split ends!
I hope you get a chance to try Josie Maran’s products and if you do, please let me know what you think!
