I know it’s been like forever since I wrote a post! The life of a Makeup Artist… on set doing makeup for beauty campaigns, fashion lookbooks, commercials, private makeup lessons, makeup for weddings, etc. You get the idea… ♥
By now I’m sure you have seen some social media buzz from a recent beach shoot I worked on. I thought I’d share with you how I created this beautiful bronzed beauty makeup look for gorgeous model Fallon Baker!
I started creating this makeup look by prepping the eyes with a shadow base. You can use your foundation or an eye primer like Backstage Eye Prime by Dior. I always recommend using a base because this will help your eyeshadow stay put all day.
For this look I placed a light layer of Brilliant Shimmer Cream by Sigma Beauty on Fallon’s eye lids. Then I pressed Healthy eyeshadow from the Brilliant & Spellbinding palette onto the lid and carved the shade Balmy into the crease for added definition. I used darker shades Languid and Fey on the corner of the eye, and blended inward for a smokey effect. The key with any smokey eye is to blend! (Tip: to get a more intense glow on the lid, spray your makeup brush with a setting spray first, and then dip your brush into the product.) I used a jet black gel liner and applied lashes. The Napoleon Perdis Chrysanthemum Faux Lashes are perfect for this look!
I applied foundation next. You can use either a makeup brush or a Beauty Blender to achieve flawless skin; sometimes I end up using both! Then I filled in Fallon’s brows with MAC’s Lingering eye brow pencil. I also like to use Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Genius Clear Waterproofing Gel to set the brows in place.
For this look, I wanted Fallon’s skin to be dewy, so I only powdered the T Zone area of her face to decrease unwanted shine. I combined several peachy blushes together to get the desired shade. By using a contour powder, I slightly defined Fallon’s cheekbones to enhance the depth. Try adding in a cream bronzer to this look… like Chanel’s Soleil Tan De Chanel to get that gorgeous bronzed glow!
To complete the look, I smoked out the under eye area with a combination of eyeshadow and pencil. I outlined the lips with Go Dutch Lip Base by Sigma Beauty, applied Hue lipstick by MAC, and dabbed Sigma Beauty’s Slip Lip Vex to the middle of the lips to get that pretty pout.
Try out this look and let me know what you think!
