Makeup Breakdowns: Jessica Ostrow

Jessica worked with GAZE Ezine over the summer at a fashion shoot.  We decided to focus on the eyes with a slightly smokey brown eyeshadow gradation and winged black liner. Lips and cheeks were kept simple and pretty with rose blush and soft pink creme lipstick.

Cheeks: Ni’xie Delicate and Sensuous blushes, mixed and blended along the cheekbones and apples of her cheeks.
