Combining the warmth of a bronzer with the glow of a highlighter for gorgeous definition & shine

Makeup Revolution

Looking for that glow? Makeup Revolution USA’s Vivid Shimmer Brick in Radiant ($7)provides this instant natural radiance to any complexion by combining the warmth of a bronzer with the glow of a highlighter. This compact will define and add shine to the skin with brilliant bronze, rose, gold and copper tones. Imagine your skin just kissed by the sun or filled with the warm shimmer of candlelight; it is as easy to achieve in just one sweep.

The Vivid Shimmer Brick creates all of these variations while allowing you to customize your ideal look. You can blend all of the colors together for a multidimensional sparkle or select from one shade at a time to contour select areas.  The options are endless as you can highlight, accent or opt for an overall sun kissed shimmer.



For glowing, radiant skin:

  • Select a powder blush that contains a slight shimmer.
  • Start by applying the blush to the apples of your cheeks. Then slightly extend under the cheek bones.
  • Lightly dust Makeup Revolution USA’s Vivid Shimmer Brick in Radiant on the top of your cheekbones; the light will naturally reflect off of it.
  • You can opt to mix all of the tones together for a multidimensional glow or you can pick and choose one by one for the desired effect.
  • Besides the cheekbones, you can add shimmer down the nose, between your eyebrows, or on your temples and chin.
  • For the eyes, sweep product on the lids and around the corners. For an enhanced eye, add the lighter tones under the brow bone.

CHRISTIAN SIRIANO Is Officially Launching A Bridal Line with Kleinfeld

Scan 258

Christian Siriano has officially launched a bridal collection for Kleinfeld, and it is absolutely stunning. He displayed all 27 pieces of the collection during his bridal runway show, and they were all gorgeous.


“I took inspiration from true romanticism for this bridal collection this season. I was inspired by the impressionist paintings of Monet and Degas, vintage French art nouveau tapestries, and interiors in the south of France. I wanted the collection to feel light, ethereal, and romantic, but powerful and sexy.
My sister was a ballet dancer growing up, and I was always captivated by the movement and fluidity of dance. This inspired some of the silhouettes in the collection. The Christian Siriano bride is classic but playful, and loves to lose herself in a dream fantasy world. This informs her choice of dress for her very special day.”


“For our first [bridal collection], I felt like there should be something for every bride because we have every bride. We have 20-year-olds, we have 60-year-olds, we have petite, plus size, we have every woman. So I was trying to give her elements from everything. I thought that was really important.” Gowns range from $3,500 to $10,000, and will be available in petite and plus sizes as well.


 Siriano’s new collection will be available next spring at the Kleinfeld Bridal boutique.
