I just repurchased a book that I absolutely love by Kevin Aucoin , its called “Making Faces” for those of you not familiar with the book its basically a inspirational and instructional book on all types of makeup.
I do hair and makeup all the time from brides to commercial clients, but I feel like there is always something extra to discover. I decided to start a project where I would use myself as the model and practice the looks in the book. Of course at first I was like I should do a different look everyday, then I thought about it. I think that one look a week is totally doable.
Here is the look that I came up with after being inspired by Kevin Aucoins look ” The Innocent” I tried to follow the steps and not copy the photos.
I have to say this may not look very extreme to some of you but I definatly felt out of my comfort zone. I highly recommend trying some looks you are not comfortable with just to push your self a little further. I don’t think this will be my everyday look, my lids were super shimmery, but to me it was sticky. I also never wear pink on my cheeks…but maybe that will be my first change.
I created a very glossy clean skin tone with Mac Studio Finish Concealer NW 20, and Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation 1.0 I mixed in a little Temptu S/B highlighter in Champagne Shimmer 053 on the cheek bones and a little Mac Trend Palette Spring 2015 Spring Session on the apples of the cheeks.
For the Eyes I used Mac Studio Eye Gloss in Pearl Varnish and on the lid Mac Trend Creme Palette 2012 in Smoked Paprika I also used Urban Decay Super Curl Mascara.
For the lips I used Mac Trend Palette Spring 2015 in Go Guava with a light coat of Mac Dazzelglass Girls Delight
