Nascar Camping World Truck Series driver Jennifer Jo Cobb is the only full time female driver in any Nascar series.
She is gorgeous, she is fearless, she is fast and she has made history this week by bringing a beauty sponsor to Nascar!
Each week 75 million people tune in to watch Nascar, and 40 % of them (around 30 million) are women. Funnily enough the only companies talking to us from the sides of the race cars are the likes of Tide, who want to help us do our laundry.
Which is very nice of them, but we’re girls. We want makeup and skin care! We want to hear from beauty companies who can give us guidance (and love!) with hair products (hello L’Oreal???), body products, nails and makeup. Finally, finally someone heard us and signed up with the lovely Jennifer Jo Cobb. After all, who better to bring the message to female race fans??
I am thrilled to introduce you to LillysCosmetics.com
In honor of Lillys Cosmetics sponsoring Jennifer, we have put together a little series of makeup tutorials to show you how to get the looks I use on Jen, with products from Lillys Cosmetics. Each day this week, leading into the last race of the season in Homestead Miami I will be posting a new look for you.
I’m posting the actual face charts that I use, with my notes in the margins.
To get this project up and running, we started at the Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics (SWINA) where Jen and I had fabulous Hylunia facials to get our skin ready.
Before we apply makeup, and every night when taking off our makeup, both Jen and I use our Clarisonics to get a super deep cleanse and to keep the surface of the skin smooth and glowing. When traveling we each take our Clarisonic Mia with us.
So here is our first look. It is the Jennifer Jo Cobb Signature look, which is the makeup you’ve seen her wear most often. We all have our own signature look.
This is a simple but lovely look the is based around beautiful hues of soft browns and golds.
I start with Amber Blaze Mineral Eye Color, applied with an Oval Shadow brush from the lashline up to the crease. Make sure you apply liberally then buff through it.
Next I take a Chisel Fluff brush and either Honey Spice Mineral Eye Color or Moonstone Mineral Eye Color and sweep it up to the brow, making sure to blend it into the Amber Blaze so that the flow of color is seamless.
I use an Angle Blender brush and some Hazelnut Mineral Eye Color to create depth in the crease and outer corners of the eyes.
Smudge some Deep Brown Eyeliner into the upper lash line, then use a taklon liner brush with Hazelnut Mineral Eye Color to smudge and buff through the eyeliner pencil. This creates a softer look to the eye, while maintaining a well defined eye. I use the same shadow and brush to gently and faintly smudge some shadow under the lower lash line.
Jen loves mascara so we apply several coats of Ultimate Mascara in black.
When you are wearing browns and golds on your eyes its important to lift up the cheeks with something a little more lively. Try Gold Canyon Duet Cheek color applied with an Angle Blush brush.
Jen loves bronzer, so I always add bronzer to her upper cheek bones, the bridge of her nose, her forehead and her chin to warm her up. From LillysCosmetics.com try Desert Sun Shimmer Mineral Bronzing Powder.
Finish the look with a full, glossy, berry toned lip. Define the lip with a liner such as the Plum liner (deep blue undertones make your teeth look whiter!). Fill in the outer corners of the lip with the liner, then go over the entire lip with a beautiful berry toned lipgloss, like Berry Sparkle Nouri Shine Lip Gloss. If you can see the liner through the gloss use a Lip Brush to blend the two together.
And there you have it! The Jennifer Jo Cobb Signature Look.
