Client Makeup Breakdown
For her eyes I kept it super simple, the first product I used was the P.Louise Eye Base, I have been loving this base underneath eyeshadow at the moment, it creates a blank canvas to apply shadow on, super bendable and doesn't crease or go oily. Its similar to the Urban Decay Primer Potion which has been a long time favourite but I kinda prefer this primer as it matches the skin tone on the eyelids perfectly.
For eyeshadow I am using the new Too faced Just peachy Mattes Eyeshadow Palette, in the crease as her transition colour I used "Peach Tea", on her lids I used "Peaches and Cream" and on her outer corner to smoke out the eyes I used "Peach Tart".
Then I lined her top lids using the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Pot Liner and with a small dense brush and MAC Carbon, I smoke out her liner, I wanted the look to be softer, no sharp winged liners or anything.
She had lash extensions on so I applied a thin layer of ModelCo Fat Lash Volumising Mascara and a few pieces of long individual lashes just to add a bit of fullness in any parts her lashes that were gappy.
To hydrate her skin I applied on a generous amount of Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream, this product is super creamy and delivers instant hydration to dull and parched skin. It has absolutely no added scents and packed with a blend of 6 African oils to really just help restore, plump and hydrate the skin. After the cream is absorbed I apply 3-4 drops of the Uma Oils Absolute Anti Aging oil, this oil really helps the skin appear more firmer and fuller, it is super lightweight and doesn't leave any oily residue so its great underneath your makeup.
As for lip balm I always prep the lips using the Aquaphor Healing Ointment.
The foundation I am using today is the NARS Sheer glow Foundation in the Shade Santa Fe. I used about 2 pumps of this foundation on her entire face and neck area, she had great skin so she didn't really need much foundation.
For her concealer, I mixed two, I used the NARS Creamy Concealer in Chantilly (lighter one) with the Mecca Max Life Proof Concealer in Sand (darker tone). For contouring I love using the concealer palette by Kroylan called Beauty Tech, its a versatile concealer palette, super creamy and bendable but not oily, it is such a great product to keep in your kit.
After the concealer was blended in I baked her under eye area using the Ben Nye Cameo Translucent powder, and powdered the rest of her skin using the MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Natural in the shade Medium.
CHEEKS AND LIPS
To bronze up her skin I used the Milani Baked Bronzer in Soleil, I applied this in a "3" motion on each sides of the face so forehead, temples, cheeks and jawline. I always use bronzer to warm up the skin first and then apply contour powder only where the I want to deepen the hollows of the cheeks and jawline.
To add colour to the cheeks I used Toofaced Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush in Pinch My Peach. For highlighter I have been loving this duo, it's the OFRA Cosmetics Highlighter in Glazed Donut and Wet n Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder Precious Petals. The Glazed Donut is quiet white and the Precious Petals is like a muted gold, alone they are not that great but together they make the most perfect shade of highlighter for any skin tone.
