Spring has almost sprung and that means one thing the fabulous Mr Jay Manuel is back in the UK and ready to showcase his Spring 2017 makeup looks and launches whether your style is #JMBClassic, #JMBIconic or #JMBAvantGarde and get one step ahead of this seasons must have essentials, exclusively on QVCUK on the 5th March at 12pm & 8pm and 5pm on the 6th March.
I have been a massive fan of Jay Manuel’s for over ten years ever since I seen his fantastic creative skills on the photo shoots for Americas Next Top Model. He always came up with most innovative concepts and always looked handsome and well groomed. I’m so excited to be an exclusive representative for his range in the UK, as when I was growing up he was one of the few figures on TV that made me feel that it was alright for guys to wear makeup.
In September I previously posted about the UK launch of the Jay Manuel Beauty Filter Finish Collection and received so many wonderful comments, that I know you will be excited to learn more about these new launches.
- Eye Shadow Quad £26.50 – For Spring their are two new quads in TEMP & BEGUILE, both come in luxurious satin black packaging, which gives these palettes a high end look, which i’m proud to display in my makeup artistry kit. These ultra fine, velvety powder shadows are intensely pigmented and enhanced with silicone to allow effortless glide over the lid, giving a smooth crease-less finish, in a combination of matte, satin-shimmer or high-pearl finishes. Tempt – is full of shimmering earthy tones, perfect to create a modern smokey eye look whilst adding an element of excitement and intrigue. Beguile – Is your pop of colour to brighten up the eyes and make a statement, plum and coral tones mixed with illuminating neutral tones allow you to go from day to even in one stroke.
- The Ultimate Pencil £21.50 – These pencils come with no limitations, whether you use them to line the eyes or lips it’s entirely up to you, have a play and decide for yourself. I couldn’t believe how soft and smooth these felt when applying, I usually find pencils tend to drag or scratch but these are super smooth and creamy with intense pigments that stay in place all day. You have a choice of Envy, which is a stunning metallic green shade that shimmers and sparkles as it catches the light or you have Trick, which is a very wearable tone of blue, which continues to be a massive trend shade around the eyes.
- Ultimate Lipstick £26.00 – This is a “one swipe” paraben free formula, enriched with Vitamin E and antioxidant rich fruit and plant extracts to nourish the lips whilst saturating with long lasting colour and shine. The clever pigments add depth and light to create a lip volumising effect. For Spring there are six new shades including the stunning Midnight Kiss Ltd Edition shade, which is unlike any shade I’ve seen before, with a deep black base mixed with multidimensional aurora borealis sparkle effect. If you adore pink but want a modern take on this classic shade then reach for Spank, this cheeky shade looks gorgeous and flirty on the lips, perfect to add a pop of colour. However if you prefer more neutral nude tones then you have a choice of Virgin, which is perfect neutral nude toned lipstick that will go with any outfit and is always appropriate, if your tastes are a little bolder then go for Coax for added depth and warmth from this natural toned shade. Which leads me onto the final two which are Whisper, which is an antique rose / mauve shade that I can see being a big on trend colour for coming season and finally Aura which I’d place in the nude category but has been blended with peachy tones to brighten the lips. At the moment Midnight Kiss, Whisper and Aura aren’t available in the UK but I’m sure you will adore Coak, Virgin and Spank which are like a lipstick wardrobe a shade to suit all occasions and moods. These will be available in duo’s from the QVCUK website with coordinating shades.
If you are looking for a professional finish to update your look, whether you prefer a classic, iconic or avante-garde inspired look, with products that are paraben free and containing beneficial skincare ingredients. I would highly reccomend you give the Jay Manuel Beauty #NoFilter range a try, as these products enhance your beauty without the need for filters and fill me with confidence. Also if you’re a makeup junkie this is first time these will be available in the UK so grab them while you can.
I hope you can tune in to watch the fabulous Jay Manuel on QVCUK on the 5th and 6th of March to find out lots more useful tips and tricks, plus he is very easy on the eye.
