So like I said, I really just wanted to enhance what was already there. Focusing on evening out the skin tone, brightening up her eyes and adding just a hint of color to her lips.
I have to apologize for the lighting in the after photos, because we got a little carried away chatting and stuff and it wound up being dark out by the time I finished. Whoops!
For the skin I mixed my trusty Bobbi Brown stick foundations in “Warm Ivory” and “Sand” with my Stila “One Step Correct” and buffed it into the skin with my Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush. Lately I have been using this mix on everyone, and it gives a beautiful finish on every skin tone and type. It looks so natural I have even used it on dudes.
Under the eyes I used Bobbi Brown Corrector in “Light Peach” and I spot concealed the rest of her face with Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in “Sand”. I like to use a light-medium coverage foundation and then go in and spot conceal because I find that it allows for a really perfected look without causing cake-face…nobody likes cake face.
On her eyes I went over her lids with Make Up Forever Aqua Cream in #17, a warm plum color with a hint of shimmer.
Then I lined the inside of her eyes with Urban Decay 24/7 Liner Pencil in Corrupt which is a rich dark brown with a slight shimmer. This is also a repeat offender on this blog, I seriously use that pencil constantly. I also smudged that pencil onto the outer 1/3 of her upper and lower lash line and blended it into the plum color to add some depth and definition to her eye shape.
For her inner corner I used TheBalm eyeshadow in “Jet Setting Jenny” from the original Shady Lady Palette. It is an amazing sheer golden color that gives a really warm, candle-lit glow which compliments the burgundy beautifully and really makes her blue eyes pop right out at ya.
For her lips I used a really simple sheer pink gloss.
Her hair was already blown out and styled so I just freshened it up a big by combing the ends and running a little bit of my Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment to add some shine and softness.
And that’s it, just enough to make her best features pop a little extra! Here is a side by side…
So there you have it! Thanks Jackie for letting me borrow your face for a little while <3
And for being a cutie patootie!
