Girlfriends: The Friends and Looks You Need This Holiday Season

This Thanksgiving break is all about ‘Netflix and Chill’. One show we’ve been binging at Mented Cosmetics is Girlfriends. Girlfriends focuses on all things sisterhood: serving looks, spilling tea, and supporting one another no matter what. While we love all the girlfriends, we each have our favorite for a specific reason whether it’s Joan’s dreams, Maya’s attitude, Lynn’s free spirit, or Toni’s style. Whichever girlfriend you connect with the most, feel free to channel your fave through their signature makeup look. 


Joan Clayton


The fashion savvy attorney, Joan loved a naturally radiant look focusing on her lips and lashes. Want to conquer the Joan Clayton look in your beauty routine, let Mented help you out.

  • Radiance starts with a flawless base. Following proper prep and prime, apply Skin by Mented foundation on areas that need the most coverage. Blend foundation with the Mented foundation brush for a seamless, streakless finish. 
  • Joan kept her makeup extremely skin like so lightly set your face, with the Skin Silk Setting Powder, but only in the areas that tend to become oily. Allow your natural radiance to shine through. 
  • Lightly fill in your brows, only in the sparse areas, with the High Precision Brow Pencil in Brow Down making sure not to create an eyebrow that is too harsh.
  • Add a natural flush to the cheeks with Peach for the Stars, a gorgeous peach blush with a hint of shimmer, adding to the natural radiance of the Joan Clayton look. 
  • To add some brightness to the inner corner of the eye, grab Chicago, a champagne shimmer shade from the Everynight Eyeshadow Palette, and pop that into the inner corner of the eye.
  • Focusing on the lips and lashes, go H.A.M on the mascara and prep your lips with Balms Away Coconut Lip Treatment. Once your lips are moisturized, give them a juicy dose of color with the semi-matte lipstick in Foxy Brown


To complete your Joan Clayton look, tackle every endeavor with confidence and class. 


Toni Childs

Toni Childs of Toni Child’s Realty is an extroverted social butterfly who loves a fun look. Is your inner Toni Childs about to come out? Let Mented set the stage. 

  • Base is where a gorgeous face starts. Following moisturizer and primer use the Skin by Mented Foundation stick to give yourself flawless skin. Apply this foundation with the Mented foundation brush for a flawless finish. 
  • For a little under eye highlight grab a Skin by Mented Foundation stick about two to three shades lighter than your foundation shade and place the highlight shade in the under eye area, around the base of the nose, chin, and center of the forehead. All of the areas where light will hit. 
  • Blend the highlight out and set with Skin Silk Setting Powder in your proper highlight shade. 
  • Now set the rest of the face with the Skin Silk Setting Powder in your correct overall shade. 
  • Add dimension to the face and highlight those gorgeous “Toni Childs” cheekbones with the Sunkissed bronzer in Out of Office.
    • With a large fluffy brush swirl the bronzer on your forehead, cheeks and jawline.
  • Place the perfect flush to the apples of the cheeks with Berried Away blush, bringing out those gorgeous cheekbones. 
  • Fill in your brows with the High Precision Brow Pencil in Brow or Later to frame your eyes.
  • For the perfect Toni Childs eye look, start with Harlem, a matte chocolate brown from the Everynight Eyeshadow Palette, and place that shade in the crease of the eye as the base for the look.
  • Dip your brush in Atlanta, matte purple brown, and place it close to the upper lash line winging out toward the outer corner of the eye.
  • Take a pencil brush and smoke out the outer corner of the eye on the lower lash line with a mixture of Atlanta and Harlem connecting with the winged out shade in the corner of the eye.
  • With a clean brush take Chicago from the center of the eye to the inner corner along the lower lash line brightening up that area of the eye.
  • Apply mascara focusing on the outer lashes creating a winged effect, giving the face a visual lift. 
  • Line your lips with Mented Liner in Night, fill in the color with our semi-matte lipstick in Pretty in Pink topping off with the Mented gloss in Mauve Over.


To complete your Toni Childs look, know your worth and always add tax honey. 


Lynn Searcy 

As the free spirited, uninhibited girlfriend of the group, Lynn’s look is simple and clean, constantly giving Bohemian vibes. As a vegan brand not tested on animals, Mented Cosmetics is the perfect fit for Lynn Searcy. 

  • Lynn’s makeup look is all about quick application and clean skin with a focus placed on the eyes, so start off with a natural base with the Skin by Mented Foundation and set with Skin Silk Loose Setting Powder
  • Fill in your brows lightly, keeping it as natural as possible with the High Brow Precision Pencil in Brow Down. 
  • Skip blush and go straight to bronzer, applying Vacay Sunkissed Bronzer with a light hand.
  • The star of Lynn’s look is always her smudged free-spirited eye look. Take Houston, a matte warm beige from the Everynight Eyeshadow Palette, and place that all over the lid. 
  • Grab Philly, matte warm tan, and place that shade in the outer crease applying it with a circular motion. 
  • Take Brooklyn, matte black, and stamp that shade on the upper lash line as your eye liner. 
  • For the grunge, bohemian vibes that scream Lynn Searcy, take Harlem and Brooklyn, matte chocolate brown and matte black and smudge this shade mixture on the upper and lower lashline. Smoke this out until you have a flawless grunge look on the eyes. 
  • Add mascara and finish the lips with Mented semi-matte in Brown Bare 


To complete the Lynn Searcy look, follow your heart and always put yourself first.
