I am out in LA this week, and I have a new look to post for you. Its from the Kevin Aucoin Book Making Faces. I am really enjoying doing this project, its really helping me figure out angles for taking beauty images.
The girl in the book, has the most amazingly dark skin, I on the other hand, have the complete opposite. Thankfully its easy to follow the steps and make the adjustments.
This weeks look is called “the anarchist” This look was very clean, with a graphic eye color and line.
The amazing Kevin Aucoin book Making Faces is again where I am drawing from inspiration. I did make a personal discovery this week noticing how little Mr. Aucoin uses foundation. He instruct to use concealer where necessary and less is more which I love, and always want to do but, don’t always.
Over all this look is extremely light makeup with a clean finish and just a pop of creative drama. I used the same graphic shape that was used on the model in the book, but you can do any shapes you like.
Skin : Prepped with moisturizer no foundation or concealer needed.
Eyes : Graphic liner applied with small angle brush Mac Fall 2013 Eye Palette in Blazer, Fall 2014 Eye Palette in Azure Haze, Storm Cloud, and Organic.
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 is called the ” The Temptress” from the Kevin Aucoin book Making Faces.
I used a fake bang to imitate the feeling of the photo. I actually really love this look.
I think the simple eye with the heavy lash and liner wing slightly out has been my favorite look thus far and possible the one I would be most comfortable wearing out. The bangs were pretty funny since they are no where near the color of my hair, but it was fun!
Face: 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 Mac Pro Palette Shaping Powder in Soft Focus for the cheek.
Eyes: I then lined the water line with Mac Pro Long wear liner in Definedlty Black I then took an angle brush and softly lined the top of the lash line with Mac Carbon and winged it out. Lid was lightly swept Mac Cinderella Collection in Vapour and Phloof. with a light white I used my Urban Decay Perversion Mascara. Brows were filled in lightly with Mac Brow Liner in Spiked.
Lips: I used my Mac Viva Glam I Lipstick with Mac Pro Long wear liner in Kiss me Quick
