My good friend Janna shot with a wonderfully talented photographer last month. She’s not used to wearing colorful makeup, so I took her out of her comfort zone with bright blues.
Face: DHC Velvet Skin Coat (primer), Nix’ie Cream Foundations Ivory 1 & Ivory 2 (blended together), Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Powder Foundation SPF 20 in Light/Med (all over face).
Eyes: UD Original PP (primer), NYX Baby Blue e/s (inner 1/3 of lid), MAC Clarity (middle), MAC Deep Truth (outer v), Wet n Wild Brule on the browbone, inner corner of eye and blended around the edges of color just below the browbone to soften the line. I gently blended the lines between the three blue shades to make them less obvious. A brown liner was applied to her lower lashline (MAC Teddy).
Eyebrows and Eyelashes: NYX Taupe to fill in her brows, and her own mascara she purchased in Mexico. I added NYX Strip Lashes for extra drama.
Cheeks: NYC Color Mosaic Wheel in Pink Glow and Nix’ie Powder blush in Sensuous.
Lips: Stila Lip Glaze in Starfruit.
