This weeks look from the amazing Kevin Aucoin Book Making Faces is called The Exotique its the one he did on Cher! Super Glossy!
This look is all about wet looking dewy shiny skin, I loved this look so much,I just wish it left my eyelids less sticky.
I was easily able to wear this out on the street, ran my errands and didn’t get any strange looks, actually I got a free coffee! So if you like free coffee, I say give this look a try!
Face: I used Makeup Forever Uplight Luminizer Gel in 12 Dewy Warm Glow along with Makeup Forever HD Blush in 225 Peachy Pink
Eyes: For the lid I actually used Mac Lip Palette in Modern Browns because I did not have any brown cream shadows and it worked out really nicely, easy smooth coverage. It recommended Petroleum Jelly for the high shine on the lids, but I used the Mac Studio Eye Gloss. I brushed my brows up and lined them with Mac Eyebrows in Linger, and Urban Decay Mascara in Perversion (my favorite, all my friends are using it too!)
Week 3 is titled The Starlet I have to say I was not going to actually bleach out my brows for fear of looking like a crazy alien. Its definably a fun look, but for normal wear I think I will be keeping my actual eyebrows 🙂
So far I have really been enjoying this project, although its been really strange trying to photograph myself, The first 2 sets of photos I was setting the timer and running in front hoping to catch a decent image, After doing a little research I can now click the picture from my phone, which makes it much easier but a lot less funny to watch, ask Claire from bohemian-belle She can give you a first hand account of the hilarity that ensues!
