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 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
