The beauty industry has experienced a radical shift in the past five years, and I have been covering it all in my Evolution of the Beauty Industry Series. I think we can all agree that celebrity influence has fallen to the wayside with the rise […]

Say "I Do" with Motives I Do Palette

Say "I Do" with Motives I Do Palette

It’s finally starting to get nice out here in the Northern Midwest, so that means bridal season is starting up!  This also means that I am gearing up for all of my wedding parties in the next few months.

So, it was great timing when I was in Miami for Motives Cosmetics Spring/Summer 2016 Collection Launch, and they introduced a couple of new products perfect for brides and their attendants.  I chose to feature two products, but hope to review the other new releases at a later date.

Motives Maven and Make up artist Jackie Gomez collaborated with Motives to create this amazing palette.  If you aren’t already following her on Instagram, make sure you start @jgmaki do paletteeupxoxo
Motives® I Do Palette Ido

Understated and delicate, I Do Palette is filled with hues of shimmering pink and neutral mattes, paired with warm cheek shades to accentuate your beauty on the most important day.

With her celebrity brides in mind, @jgmakeupxoxo designed I Do Palette to exude romance for a classic look that complements your eternal love.

Includes five eye shadows (Rings, Cake, Dance, Cake, Kiss), one blush-Love, one bronzer-Toast, one highlighter-Vows and one mini eye pencil-Brown.  I love the names!!

Motives® Gem Sparkles
Were created in a collaboration with Motives Maven Aurora Gonzalez Bravo.  You should definitely follow her on Instagram @auroramakeup She won’t disappoint 🙂

gem sparkles
It is a micro-glitter that is highly-reflective, this gemstone inspired collection was hand-picked by @auroramakeup for its refined, sophisticated texture and superior luster. In lush shades of pink, gold and silver, the ultra-fine particles are easily applied wet or dry for extreme brilliance.

The Gem Sparkles come in 3 colors.  Citrine, Zarconia, & Morganite

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on these new products created by the two beautiful Motives Mavens.  We decided to use them for one of our collaboration blog posts.

You can read the full blog post to see what the other Pro MUAs did, but I wanted to show you mine here on my own blog too 🙂
Here’s my beautiful model Allie.  I wanted to get some pictures outside, but believe it or not, it was snowing!

So here’s a step by step tutorial that I did for Ali’s look:

Skin Prep

1. Skintelligence PH Normalizer
2. Skintelligence Daily Moisture Enhancer
3. Motives Invisiline-Under the eye area using Motives Concealer Brush

Eyes

1. Applied Motives Eye Base to the entire eye lid using Motives Concealer Brush
2. Eyebrows filled in with Motives Eye Brow Pencil-Light Brown
3. Motives Crease Brush used to apply “Dance” from the I Do Palette and made a “V” on the outer corner of the eye
4. Applied “Cake” to the center of the mobile lid using the Motives Large Eye Shadow Brush
5. Applied “Rings”  to the inner corner of the eye with the Motives Blender Brush and blended it in to the other colors on the lid including into the crease of the eye.
6. Used “Lace”  to highlight the brow bone with the Motives Eye Shadow Brush
7. Lined upper lid and the bottom corner with “Brown” eyeliner included in the I Do Palette
8. Smudged the brown liner with the Motives Angled Liner Brush that was dipped in the “Kiss” eye shadow
9. Sprayed the Motives Crease Brush with 10 Years Younger Setting Spray and dipped it into Gem Sparkles-Zirconia. Then used a patting motion to apply it to the inner corner, and swept it onto the rest of the mobile lid.
10. Motives La La Mineral Volumizing & Lengthening Mascara in Black on her eyelashes

Face

1. Applied Motives Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation in shade Linen with Motives Foundation Brush
2. Contoured underneath her cheek bone with “Toast” using the Motives Contour Brush
3. Applied “Love” to her cheeks using the Motives Blush Brush
4. Highlighted her cheek bones with “Vows”
5. Completed her look by spritzing her entire face with Motives 10 Years Younger Setting Spray to ensure that her makeup will last 16 hours

Lips

Applied All Day Liquid Stick in Seduction and blended in Motives La La Mineral Lipshine in Celeb using the Motives Lip Brush
I was honestly so impressed by the quality of the “I Do Palette”.

The eye shadows are so pigmented.  Even the light colors show up so well.  They are very smooth and velvety too.  The blush is the perfect pink, and the highlighter adds just enough without overdoing it.  The Gem Sparkles are easy to work with and are a lot finer than regular cosmetic glitter.

I have been using these products so much since I wrote this because they look good on more than just brides! 😉  For any brides out there, these make wonderful gifts for your wedding party, or even your hired makeup artist!

Have you tried some of these new releases?  If not, you will want to.  I know I’m in love!!
