Who thinks playing with makeup is fun? I do! :) And if you read this blog, chances are that you agree. I personally spent quite a bit of time at my mom’s vanity when I was a child. Smearing red lipstick and blue eyeshadow all over my face was one of my favourite pre-bedtime activities (right after staying up to watch old black and white movies on TNT).
Even now that I’m older, makeup is pretty much synonymous with fun. Of course my product placement and colour-selection have improved by leaps and bounds, but it is still such a joy to experiment with countless the looks I can create. Sure makeup can be that thing that helps you look presentable for school or work, but it can also be that transformative medium that can make you look (and feel) like a completely different person. And we’re not even talking about stage makeup or Halloween makeup yet! I think that even makeup artistry at its highest (i.e. most creative) level begins with play.
Not everyone needs to reach a crazy-technical level of makeup artistry in our everyday lives, but it’s nice to remember the fun side of makeup, which is why I was so excited to see Mary Kay‘s new colour line: Mary Kay At Play! The line is all about fun, vibrant makeup that totally screams “teenager” (in a good way), mostly because of the packaging, but it really is perfect for girls of any age who like fun makeup. :)
The line will be available beginning November 16 through Mary Kay beauty consultants, so I thought I’d give you a preview of the Baked Eyes Trios* today. They are gorgeous. I mean, just look at that…… puhrettyful. See more after the jump!
