Gretta's Got It: Make Up
Hey, girls, we update our wardrobe year after year, but to really be on trend, you need a change in your makeup bag as well. Seven's style expert Gretta Monahan is going to tell you what's hot for this year in tonight's Gretta's Got It.
WSVN -- Gretta Monahan: "You may be all stocked up on your style in your closet, but one big mistake is forgetting to update the face. If you do that, you risk being a fashion faux pas. We are not going to let that happen."
Gretta Monahan: "So I want to introduce you to my girl Jenna. She is the go-to girl for runway makeup, and she's going to show us the latest and greatest right here and how to get it. All right, Jenna, so show me. This is beautiful. I mean is this now for spring? I mean, what is the look?"
Jenna: "The neon colors are the trend for the season. If you don't want to use it on the eye or the lip, you can do it on high cheek bone with a pop of color, lip with a bright color or even a bright color on the eye."
Gretta Monahan: "So how do you get a little bit of this version and bring it into your reality everyday?"
Jenna: "You can take the green and just use it as a liner, but it still is giving you a pop of that neon to enhance your look."
Gretta Monahan: "So, tell me, what neon is right for what coloring?"
Jenna: "For blondes, the greens work great, and, for someone like you, purples and blues."
Gretta Monahan: "You know what? Colored shadows can be scary, so if you're nervous, don't worry. Pick up a little pencil in color, even a few. They're inexpensive and easy to use."
Gretta Monahan: "See, I told you so. She's wearing the purple and lilac family and you can see this is perfectly work appropriate, fine for day. But, now, Jenna's going to kick it up and use that brighter purple to show you how not to be afraid and evolve your look."
Gretta Monahan: "Wow, OK, that definitely upped the volume, so what did you do?"
Jenna: "I just highlighted the crease, and I just made it a little bit darker using the same colors, just applying a little more of it just along the crease."
Gretta Monahan: "So, this is the contour look, and we saw a lot of this on runway and, basically, you want to create a triangular shape right under the cheekbone, and that's going to give you a very structured face."
Gretta Monahan: "Look, I know these colors are shocking, so, if you're still afraid, don't worry about it. Go right into any local makeup counter because they will help you, and try it before you buy it. I'm Gretta for Gretta's Got It."
