Hello beauty lovers!
I wanted to catch you all up on some of the makeup I’ve done lately. The first one was for a mother of two and nurse, Melissa A. She and her husband were celebrating their 28th birthdays with a joint “white” party in Silverlake, and she wanted a sexy smoky eye with a bright lip. After reviewing some choice photos on Pinterest, we decided on this combo:
Check her out at the white party! #smokin. Dress by Stephanie Arango.
Eyes: Urban Decay Naked Palette 1, Dark Horse eyeshadow all over the lid with MAC’s Reflects Antiqued Gold glitter. MAC Bamboo and Soft Brown in the crease with Crave from the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. Brows done with MAC Lingering brow pencil and Faint from the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette.
Lips: MAC Prolong Wear lip pencil in Anticipation with Viva Glam Nicki 1 lipstick and peach lip gloss from Youngblood Cosmetics.
Face: I used Dinair’s Airbrush makeup for a natural finish with staying power.
Since it’s Friday and some of you are probably planning a fabulous night out, I thought I’d bring you a “going out” makeup look. This makeup is super -wearable but still has nighttime elements like glitter and smoke. Ooh-la-la!
This is a great makeup look to try if you have a ton of bold, bright eyeshadow colors and have no idea how to use them. Don’t be afraid of color! Instead of smearing it all over, line your lower lid with it. You will get a pop of color without feeling like you went overboard. Balance everything out with a light lip and natural skin. I skipped lashes for this look, but if you’re feeling a little vixen, go for it. Lashes have a way of finishing the look, kind of like the frame around a masterpiece- it’s also the reason celebrities always look so put together on the red carpet.
