As a professional makeup artist, I have a number of Mally’s “Bullet Proof” products in my professional makeup case, and in this article I’m going to introduce you to two new products from Mally’s Pro-Tricks Collection that I’m crazy about, and know you’ll feel like a “Pro” when you start using these products yourself!
The two Mally products I’m going to share with you are:
• Mally Pro-Tricks Correcting Palette &
• Mally Pro-Tricks Eye Palette
You’ll be able to multi-task with the Pro-Tricks products and get an exceptional variety of looks! We’ll take a look at the Correcting Palette first, and then the Eye Palette!
This is a great correcting and concealing palette! There are two palette shades available. Either Lighter or Deeper! There are three colors in each palette ! A light tone, a medium tone and a deeper tone. You’ll be able to see the colors in both palettes when you go to the website link that I’ll provide later in the article, and should have no problem determining which set will be appropriate for your complexion shade.
Quoting Mally, here’s her “Secret-How to” for using the multi purpose Correct and Conceal Palette:
“To highlight and contour your fave features, use a sponge, a brush, or your fingers to apply the lightest shade everywhere you want to make something stand out— whether it’s your cheekbones, the center of your nose, on either sides of your nose, on your brow bones, on either side of your mouth, or in the center of your chin.Use the middle shade for your concealer underneath your eyes and on any blemishes. Finish by applying your foundation on top as you normally would, taking care to blend any remaining lines.”
With the new Pro Tricks Correct and Conceal Palette you have everything you need to do the contouring Mally calls “war paint to highlight and contour as you battle against shadows, unevenness, redness, and any other fierce enemies.”
It’s that simple….
Don’t be afraid to experiment and have fun! This is makeup and you can always remove it and reapply! It’s a process that you pick up very quickly, especially with a great palette like Mally’s! You have three tones to work with, and by experimenting with blending the shades, in no time, you’ll be hiding the dark shadows under your eyes, contouring & lifting your cheek bones, and sculpting your face just like a “PRO”. Keep in mind that a soft touch when applying the correct/conceal creams, and seamless blending will bring you the best results!
Mally’s Pro-Tricks Eye Palette is next!
This is a unique palette of colors to create your look for every mood, occasion, or new change in fashion trends!! From a natural, high fashion or trendy look, this handy Pro-Trick Eye Palette has it all…..and MORE! Take a look at the picture of the Eye Palette! There are 12 great shadows in a variety of colors including neutrals, bold, and always “in” shades for you to choose from.
Now here’s the “Magic” of Mally’s Eye palette! The last three shades in the palette are called “Modifiers”! The top (first) color is your shadow base. You’ll want to apply this first over your upper eye area. It totally evens out the eye area, and as Mally always says, “it will allow any color you use to be completely bullet proof!” Once you’ve applied your color the second color will allow you to lighten it, and the third shade will let you deepen your shadows.
I’ve never had so much fun with eyeshadows! Using any color, you’ll be able to create the ever popular “smokey” eye look by targeting the crease of your eye and just a bit above, and then smudge a bit of shadow under the eye! You can then literally “lighten” or “deepen” with these modifiers right on top of the shadows to get the shape and depth perfect! You can also take a shadow up to your eye brow, then “lighten” right under the brow, and “deepen” in the outer corner for an amazing monochromatic shaded eye! Finish with a touch of the “pink” color in the outer corner of your eye for a modern uplifting look!
Here is a before picture of me without makeup. As you can see, my skin is pale, translucent, and has a lot of pink undertones.
Here is my finished look after applying Mally’s New Pro Tricks Correct and Conceal Palette, and Pro Tricks Eye Palette.
These are the steps I used to complete my finished look – With Pro-Tricks Correct and Conceal:
1. Using the light Corrector & Concealer Palette with a blend of the light and medium corrector, I was able to match my skin tone, and eliminate any darkness under my eyes. I then added an additional dot of the light concealer and blended it at the inner corner of my eye to make my eyes appear a bit wider apart.
2. With the same “Blend” used above, I applied it around my nose to mouth area on each side, then lifted up just a bit at the corner of my mouth with the light concealer.
3. I then used the medium Corrector & Concealer with just a “touch” of the light around my forehead, cheeks and chin. I carefully blended these areas to even my skin tone. As it turned out, I liked the look and didn’t need to apply any additional makeup. The deeper color is terrific. I used it to contour my cheeks and give a “kiss” of color around my forehead, hairline, and chin while always blending to achieve that “seamless” look. Adding brow color, a pop of blush, and lip color I accomplished a nice finished look. Spraying a mist of a hydration to my face for a fresh look, I then moved along to the Pro-Tricks Eye Palette!
Here are the steps I used with Pro-Tricks Eye Palette:
1.I covered my upper eye area with the top modifier to open my eye and create more space to play with some color.
2.Using the Monochromatic technique I mentioned earlier, I took the 3rd color in the first row of the palette, and brush blended it up an out to the corner of my eyebrow in a diagonal lift.
3.I then used the 2nd modifier and blended the color to lighten from the inner corner of my eye to midway under my eyebrow to achieve a lifted look and still keep a subtle shaping at the outer corner.
4. Going back to the top modifier with a smaller flat top brush, I highlighted under the arch of my brow.
5.Taking a “hint” of the first color in the 2nd row on the tip of my finger, I lightly touched the outer corner of my eye to get a subtle “Pop” of color.
6.I smudged a line around my eye with the 3rd color in the second row, then used the deepest modifier, lightly brushed over the liner, and smudged slightly upward in the outer corners of my eyes.
7.A bit of mascara finished my look.
I can easily say that with Mally’s Pro-Tricks Correct & Conceal Palette ($40) and Pro-Tricks Eye Palette ($50), your possibilities are unlimited!
