Makeup Breakdowns: Smokey Brown Eyes on Hendrika Neely

Hendrika tested with us a couple of months ago. She’s with the Reinhard Agency in Philadelphia.

Face: Primer was first applied and smoothed over the entire face. Concealer was dabbed on blemishes and smoothed out with my finger, then a mix of Revlon Golden Caramel and Nix’ie Beige 3 was applied all over the face using a foundation brush. I blended with my fingers, then dusted Ben Nye Neutral Setting Powder over her face to set the makeup.

Eyes: After using UD Original to prime her lids, I applied E.L.F Cream Liner in Coffee all over her lid as a base, then patted MAC Bronze and the Brown Shade from NYX Honeycomb Trio on top. Dark brown shadows from the Coastal Scents 88 Warm palette and NYX Dark Brown were blended into the crease and outer v. The inner corners were brightened using UD Baked. Her waterline was lined with UD 24/7 Glide-On Liner in El Dorado. Her lower lashline was lined with Sephora Flashy WP in Black, and MAC Blacktrack fluidline was used on the upper lashline. Black mascara (Almay Lengthening) was used on her top lashes. NYX Sahara was dabbed on her browbone and blended.

Cheeks: A deep peach shade was blended along her cheekbones.

Lips: After lining them with Revlon Colorstay Lipliner in Raisin, I mixed together Revlon Raisin Rage and Blackberry and used that to fill in her lips.
