How To Take Your Makeup From Day to Night With Cynthia Rowley Beauty 

We’re pretty darn thrilled that mega fashion designer Cynthia Rowley has expanded her stylish empire to include a line of beauty products—and we’re even more excited that Cynthia Rowley Beauty is sold exclusively in the Birchbox Shop. For a limited-time, you can score the trendsetter’s Exclusive Launch Collection for $42a $57 value! The set includes the Gilded Canvas Bag, the Liquid Liner in Black Ink, and the Eye Shadow Palette - No.1. 

To give you a better sense of just how magical these new launches are, we tapped celeb makeup artist Daniel Martin (who works with stars like Dianna Agron and our wanna-be BFF Jennifer Lawrence) to use them in a day to night video tutorial. Watch as he transitions our staffer Deepica’s beauty look using the palette and the liner—these products aren’t just beautiful, they really perform!
