Hozell Helping Haiti

Help Hozell Help Haiti…and get a rad shirt too.

picture-1

From Hozell:
If you’re like us, you wish you could donate endlessly… but don’t have the spare cash to throw down. We’re creating this t-shirt, with proceeds going to The Red Cross and other relief efforts to help the people of Haiti, so you can help the cause and get a great looking tee out of the deal. 

If you can… get one for yourself, one for a friend, one for your mailman, your gardener, the guy at the gas station, and so on. 

[though this item isn't being custom constructed at 100% of our standard hozell retail quality (to keep the cost down and raise more money), these shirts are still soft as hell and super comfortable]

Get the Hozell for Haiti Tee HERE.

Although we fully believe that beauty is on the inside, it never hurts to add a little illuminating powder to bring it out from time to time! Our makeup artist Rene was nice enough to share some of her insider secrets on how to get a flawless natural look. Get ready for a pretty good sized list…apparently even Swell models need a little liner-love to be camera ready!

The full deal:

1. Start with a light moisturizer- Garnier Skin Renew Moisturizer

2. Add a solid foundation: Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer

3. Conceal: Apply Smashbox High Def Concealer under eyes

4. Color: Add Shiseido Gold Lights Eyeshadow to lids, followed by Mac Paradisco and a light shade like Smashbox Flirt at inner corners to widen the eyes.

5. Define: Line top and bottom with a dark copper liner, like CK Ultimate Edge in Cocoa Sheer. Add a coat of black mascara, Rene uses L’Oreal Voluminous mascara, for some added drama.

7. Illuminate: Light up your look with a highlighting liquid- Giorgio Armani Radiant Pigments.

8. Lips: Brush on a natural lip color and a little gloss.

9. Bronze: Add a final touch of color with a little bronzer- Laura Mercier Bronzer.

Don’t have time for full shebang?

We asked Rene to pick out one essential shouldn’t be left behind….a good foundation.

10. Smile!
