We saw plenty of the smoky eye (and oodles of eye candy) last night at AUDREY’S NIGHT OUT! We’ll be sharing the eye candy and all the red carpet celebs with you soon, so keep checking back. Meanwhile, we’ll help you achieve the oh-so coveted smoky eye look in our TGIFree Friday giveaway. Read on …
In our Fall 2010 issue, we highlighted Susie Wang, the creator of the all-natural, fruit pigmented cosmetics and skincare line, 100% Pure. Her line is the first to use only patented fruit and vegetable pigment in all their products, which means you’re directly applying antioxidants and minerals to your face every time you wear her makeup. In fact, the entire line is 100% vegetarian, natural, gluten-free and biodegradable — no chemicals, no toxins, not even fur for their makeup brushes. Even their labels are printed with non-toxic soy ink and all packaging is either post-recycled, recyclable or pre-cycled (“we pick up from our neighbors packing materials such as popcorn and packing boxes to re-use them,” says 100% Pure’s website).
As you can tell, Wang is a hard-core believer in preserving the earth, but she’s also quite passionate about helping animals as well. The company has made donations to various causes helping animals — including no kill shelters and private individuals with animals who need surgery. They’ve even rescued and placed dogs into loving homes themselves.
With all that passion, you know the line’s got to have a high standard of integrity. So this week, we’re giving away three sets of the 100% Pure Creamstick Eye Liner in Black Pearl and Black Tea Pigmented Long Wear Gel Eye Liner in Silver Star to our readers.
It’s actually a really good combo for our Asian faces. You can apply the Gel Eye Liner with a small, hard-tip brush for a nice, silvery-charcoal lining effect, or you can smudge it directly on with your finger for the perfect smoky eye. And the Creamstick Eye Liner is perfectly shimmery without any nasty glitter to stab the eye. That also works as a smudgy eyeliner or as an overall eyeshadow. (Check out our Beauty Trend page in our Fall issue to mimic the look on model Charlene Almarvez.)
So tell me what your fall makeup look is gonna be. You just may win a set of the 100% Pure makeup! You have till September 29, 11:59 pm. You must have a U.S. address to win. Good luck!
