FOTD 10/29/11

Hey guys!  I thought I would share a face of the day with you.  I was in the mood to get slightly glammed up, but nothing over the top.  Most week days I'm up really early and don't really have much time to wear anything but tinted moisturizer or BB cream, concealer, mascara, and bronzer.  So on this Saturday I was really missing time with my brushes and all my different fun eyeshadows and colors!  Here are some pics and a list of everything I used:

Mix of Neutrogena Healthy Skin foundation in Nude and Loreal True Match in N3
Maybelline Dream Mousse concealer under the eyes
Maybelline Superstay concealer in Light on redness and blemishes
Maybelline Fit Me pressed powder
NYC Bronzer in Sunny
ELF Studio blush in Pink Passion (LOVE)

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Tarte Amazonian Clay Cream Eyeshadow in Shimmering Taupe
Mac Sketch eyeshadow
NYX Glitter Cream Palette in Sweet Chocolate Browns (Pink glitter on the end)
Maybelline Chai Latte quad (light brown)
Highlight color from WnW Vanity palette (matte cream color)
WnW creme eyeliner in Black
Tarte Lights Camera Lashes mascara
Revlon Beyond Natural Defining lashes

Jordana Baby Berry lipliner
Rimmel Airy Fairy lipstick

Sunday Evening Freelancing!

Today was awesome!  I had the opportunity to attend a photoshoot and work with an awesome photographer and a really sweet model named Lara, who let me do her makeup.  In this post I will provide a list of products I used on her for both of the looks we did, and also a few pictures of the finished product!  First of all, let me just say that it was a really fun day....I love doing makeup, and it was so cool to see how that translated into professional pictures!

So for the first look, we went for a soft golden brown smokey eye with neutral light pink lips.  Even though Lara has some of the longest eyelashes ever, I thought it would add a lot to the look if we went for some thick and wispy falsies.  Overall I thought she looked beautiful!  I really can't take much credit for that though, since she her skin is naturally flawless! :)

Products Used for look #1:
mix of Loreal True Match foundations in Classic Tan and Natural Buff
Maybelline Superstay concealer in Light (she really didn't even need it!)
ELF Studio Mattifying powder
NYC Bronzer in Sunny
ELF Studio blush in Pink Passion

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Naked palette shadows: Half Baked, Darkhorse, Virgin, Naked, Buck
Loreal HIP Black gel eyeliner, winged out on upper lashline
UD 24/7 black liner pencil in Zero on lower waterline
Maybelline Full N Soft mascara
Salon Perfect lashes Demi Wispies
Maybelline Define a Brow in Dark Blonde

NYX lipliner in Sand Pink
Rimmel lipstick in Airy Fairy

For the 2nd look, Lara wanted more drama and some bright red lips!  Basically I just added onto what she already had on her face, and removed the pink lipstick.  I added some Creep from the Naked palette (which is just a black eyeshadow) to the outer corners of her eyes.  I also changed her blush from a bright pink to more of a peachy tone.  For that I used NARS blush in Torrid.  And she wanted bright red lips, so I lined her lips with NYX lipliner in Plush Red and she used her own red lipstick.

I think both looks turned out really well, and I'm convinced that she is one of the lucky ones who can totally pull off any makeup look!  Thanks so much, Lara and Guy, I had so much fun and I really hope you like the looks as well! :)
