The excitement has been building since it was announced in 2011, that respected, acclaimed celebrity makeup artist Sam Fine was taking over as Creative Makeup Director for Fashion Fair Cosmetics. Ever since then makeup lovers have been wondering – when will there be a Sam Fine Fashion Fair collection? What would a Sam Fine Fashion Fair collection look like? And finally, our questions have been answered. The Sam Fine collection is OFFICIALLY at Fashion Fair counters!
And after writing that post, I was able to get on over to Macy’s on State Street to check out the collection myself! Beloved Chicago makeup artist Viola Nicholson was on hand to share it with me, and to try out a few items on me for an upcoming photo shoot I did yesterday.
Here I’m wearing a mix of lip colors – primarily Cognac, African Violet, Pink Parfait and we finished with a little Canary Diamond gloss.
On my eyes, Viola used the Tunisian Nights eyeshadow quad, applying the black shadow while wet, and patting on the navy shadow with her fingers.
I really love African Violet – it’s a truly unexpected kind of purple. Deep, dark and sexy, like the skin of an eggplant. Pink Parfait isn’t soft and tame as the name might indicate – this is a powerful POW of pink, perfect for deeper skin tones. The Tunisian Nights shadows lasted all day – can’t wait to show you the shoot I wore this for!
For now all I have are these images and the official info via Fashion Fair. Follow them on Facebook for more images and info. And of course, follow @SamFineBeauty on Twitter for the inside scoop from the man himself. CONGRATS, Sam! We are so proud of you and excited about this!
