Making Faces Week 7

This weeks look is called The Sophisticate , its a thirties inspired  Film Noir look. I know another no eyebrow look. I have been skipping around a little. I didn’t want all 3 of the no eyebrow looks together. So, my friends and family would know that I did not shave off my eyebrows. I repeat I DID NOT SHAVE OFF MY EYEBROWS, mom! 🙂  ( don’t be scared Lori)

Either way its so strange to see myself without them.  I never think that they are dark until I try to hide them. I did exactly the steps in the book, get the book for full details. No matter what I do I can still see them. I asked a few of my Drag Queen friends….there response….”there is an APP for that.” So again photo shop wins out. For those of you who don’t photo shop there is an I-phone app that is called Tune your Face, Thanks AGGY

This one I have included a black and white, and a color photo. Why a black and white beauty image you ask, well that’s what it is in the book 🙂 I have also included color for those of you who want to see it.

Thanks

Jen

blackandwhite colorFace: 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 Chanel 20 Claire Loose Powder

Eyes: I lined the bottom water line with Kryolan Faceliner in 60. I then used my Kryolan Eye Shadow Palette in V3 to shade the lids from the outside corner of the lid to the inside crease, a tiny bit is then dusted under the eye at the lash line.I smudged black from the same shadow palette into my upper lash line and applied Ardell individual lashes with Duo Dark Glue. Finishing off lashes with Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

Lips: Mac Lipstick in Hang up

Making Faces Project Week 4

This weeks look inspired by the Kevin Aucoin makeup book making faces is called  The Flapper so  of course I felt obligated to do a little pin curl on my hair, using the Aquage Defining Gel.

The eyes for the flapper are very smoldry with a dark red lip, I could see myself wearing this look on a night out sometime, it was a little funny to walk home in my extra bundled up winter gear though. Enjoy!
