Making Faces Week 9

I am out in LA this week, and I have a new look to post for you. Its from the Kevin Aucoin Book Making Faces. I am really enjoying doing this project, its really helping me figure out angles for taking beauty images.

The girl in the book, has the most amazingly dark skin, I on the other hand, have the complete opposite. Thankfully its easy to follow the steps and make the adjustments.

Yay for bight colors!

Making Faces Week 8

This weeks look is called “the anarchist” This look was very clean, with a graphic eye color and line.

The amazing Kevin Aucoin book Making Faces is again where I am drawing from inspiration. I did make a personal discovery this week noticing how little Mr. Aucoin uses foundation. He instruct to use concealer where necessary and less is more which I love, and always want to do but, don’t always.

Over all this look is extremely light makeup with a clean finish and just a pop of creative drama. I used the same graphic shape that was used on the model in the book, but you can do any shapes you like.

jenanarchistSkin : Prepped with moisturizer no foundation or concealer needed.

Eyes : Graphic liner applied with small angle brush Mac Fall 2013 Eye Palette in Blazer, Fall 2014 Eye Palette in Azure Haze, Storm Cloud, and Organic.

Lips: Mac Cremesheen Glass in On the Scene

 

Making Faces Project Week 5

This weeks look is called the ” The Temptress” from the Kevin Aucoin book Making Faces.

I used a fake bang to imitate the feeling of the photo. I actually really love this look.

I think the simple eye with the heavy lash and liner wing slightly out has been my favorite look thus far and possible the one I would be most comfortable wearing out. The bangs were pretty funny since they are no where near the color of my hair, but it was fun!

TemptressThe Look

Face: For the skin I prepped with Mac Natural Radiance Primer in Yellow to Shop and limited concealer from the Mac Light Palette I then used my Mac Pro Palette Shaping Powder in Soft Focus for the cheek.

Eyes: I then lined the water line with Mac Pro Long wear liner in Definedlty Black I then took an angle brush and softly lined the top of the lash line with Mac Carbon and winged it out. Lid was lightly swept Mac Cinderella Collection in Vapour and Phloof. with a light white I used my Urban Decay Perversion Mascara. Brows were filled in lightly with Mac Brow Liner in Spiked.

Lips: I used my Mac Viva Glam I Lipstick with Mac Pro Long wear liner in Kiss me Quick

Making Faces Project Week 2

This week my look from the Kevin Aucoin book Making Faces is The Vamp, the original look in the book was done on Demi Moore, as you can see from my pictures we have completely different coloring. Again I try to follow Mr. Aucoin’s steps rather than copy the photo look.  http://www.kevynaucoin.com/

I found that this vamp look is way different from my average makeup day! I loved the eyes but the instructions say to line the inside of the lips for that Clara Bow look. My top lip is smaller than my bottom, so for me it felt really strange to emphasis that, but the project dictates it. I’m trying to, “get comfortable with being uncomfortable.” ( thanks navy seals)

jenvamp2The Directions stated to use hardly any foundation only concealer is necessary so I went sans anything for the face other than my Dior Hydra Life Moisturizer http://www.dior.com

Eyes : I used my Urban Decay Palette using the grey tones. www.urbandecay.com for the liner I used Mac Pro Long wear Black Ice http://www.maccosmetics.com
and Urban Decay Mascara in Perversion www.urbandecay.com

For the Lips: I lined them with Mac Pro Long wear in Kiss me Quick and  Used my Mac Editorial Red Lip Palette to mix the lip color. http://www.maccosmetics.com
