You know when you look at old photographs of yourself that were taken in that moment, just before dusk, when the sun casts a tawny glow and makes everybody’s skin look exceptionally good? That’s the inspiration behind my Desert Twilight Collection—those sun-swept shades of nudes and pinks that remind me of late summer days and that late-afternoon glow.
Fab fact: The gorgeous necklace on our model is from Lulu Frost (our very own artists did the makeup for the NYC-based jewelry’s line’s Fall 2012 campaign). I love how founder-designer, Lisa Salzer, describes her inspiration behind the piece: “Grace Kelly goes West”. With its Navajo-meets-cocktail-party feel, it captures the mood of Desert Twilight completely.
To really play up the desert-like feel we came up with the perfect shade of turquoise blue to add to your look like a beautiful piece of Southwestern jewelry. Plus we’ve got two cool nail polish colors too—my favorite summer accessory for fingers and toes.
Here’s how to get Bobbi’s Desert Twilight Look:
Cheeks: For that soft, just-before-sunset flush of color, apply Pink Truffle Creamy Color for Lips and Cheeks on the apples of cheeks and blend.
Lips: Using the same Pink Truffle Creamy Color for Lips and Cheeks, take your finger or a Lip Brush and apply the shade all over lips—that’s why this multitasking product is so cool! Next, swipe Bronzed Heather High Shimmer Lip Gloss over lips for a top layer of gorgeous, eye-catching dimension.
Eyes: The beauty of the Desert Twilight Eye Palette is it features everything you need to create standout eyes—simply begin with the Navajo shade as your base shadow and mix-and-layer the Metallic and Sparkle shadows from there.
Next, give your eyes more intense definition with Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Twilight Night Shimmer Ink.
Finally, brush on Extreme Party Mascara from the base of lashes to the tips for a lush, full-volume look.
