The Gregory Arlt Education
Gregory Arlt is a rockstar MA. I religiously follow his twitter. He shares a great love for the Feline eyeliner. This makes him a kindred spirit. I heart him.
Mr Arlt is the man responsible for the English rose look for the lovely Carey Mulligan.
His goal was to keep the "skin luminous and cool with a sweet pink cheek, the eyes soft yet defined with gray metallic shadows, and the lips a ‘just bitten’ berry stain."
The soft and pretty look was achieved with MAC Cosmetics. His lippie cocktail was very interesting. It really makes me want to visit a Pro store. It will be my first stop the next time I visit NYC.

Gregory created a custom lip balm/stain for Carey. He mixed ½ a drop of rose and mint oils into Lip Conditioner with a drop of PRO Lipmix in Crimson, PRO Lipmix in Burgundy and a ¼ drop of PRO Lipmix in Black to create the perfect berry stain. To get the look at home you can use Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF 15 in Plum Perfect.
