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!)
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!
For the Skin: I used very limited concealer for this image, as instructed by the book, it says not to use much foundation if its not needed. I simply used my Mac Concealer Palette in Light
