Lets get down to the serious business of make up now be warned I can talk for ours on this subject I am a make up geek! The over all look of the shoot is super glam we want the models to be glamazons. As I mentioned earlier I will be tanning them so they are bronzed beauties. Skin wise bronzed, dewy and highlighted to achieve this look I will be using Chanel Pro Luminere as a base well blended with a soft brush. I like to use a soft brush as I can really buff the product into the skin for a super airbrushed finish. To conceal and highlight I will be using Kevyn Aucoin skin sensual enhancer which I have to say is amazing I am completely in love with this product. It cost me a fortune to import it as you can only get it in America but I have to say it’s well worth it. My good friend and mentor James Molloy put me on to this product so big thanks there!!
I won’t go on too much if you have any questions about products and how to use them please feel free to leave a comment and I will be more than happy to help!
Colour wise I want to keep it bronzy and peachy with a purple lid. I like to use creams Mac cream colour bases are amazing products and leave a beautiful shiny finish that works so well on camera, for this shoot I will be using dark brown and sepia. First I will contour the eye with the browns so into the socket line and underneath eye to open it up, to increase the intensity of colour I follow with a dark brown eye shadow also by Mac. On the lid I use a purple cream eyes shadow by Illamasqua followed by a Purple Mac eye shadow. I fill the water lines of the eye top and bottom with a bronze brown pencil, Teddy by Mac one of my favourite colours. Underneath the eye I add a Chanel bronze eye shadow for extra intensity. I fill in the brows but softly as this look is about the eye and finish by curling the eyelashes and coating them with two coats of Maybelline extreme lash mascara.
Cheeks I use a mac mineralize bronzer which gives great colour and shine the concealer has put in some highlight but I add to this with Macs cream colour base in Luna, I touch and press this into the skin… I then use a dark brown cream by make up forever to contour I do this to bring out the cheek bones and slim down the nose.
I add a highlight to the cupids bow on the lips using a beige pencil then mix a beige and peach lipstick gorgeous! When the shoot is published I will post the results!
