Thinking of warm weather during this cold spell?  It can make one  feel warmer!   Janell Geason of Aveda always comes up with interesting usually very wearable makeup ideas during New York Fashion Weeks. Here is her summer sunset ombré eye with pinks and oranges on the brown bone, inspired by the colors in Leann Marshall’s Spring 2018 Show (stay tuned.) Colors used were Aveda’s Petal Essence Lip Liners Dragon Fruit and Barberry Bloom, fading to a yellow pigment (not Aveda.)
