Beauty is something you have to define for yourself. I see beautiful faces in front of me every day and what I always do is let their beauty inspire me. I get to see these beautiful women without makeup. I get a sense of who they are. If I put too much makeup on them, it takes away their personality.I had the pleasure of working with Francesca Eastwood for a stylish red carpet, pre Oscars event. She wanted a soft smokey eyes that will accentuate her deep-blue eyes so we went for a haze of dark plum mixed with a touch of rose gold. The result was beautiful so I decided to pair it up with a French Fishtail Up-do to create a soft bohemian look she desired. We kept the lips nude and creamy and her skin flawless. Here’s what I used to accomplish her look:
* CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre – Emerveille – pat the rose-gold all over the lid
*CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre – Ebloui – take the color into the socket line and the outer corner of the eyes blending and diffusing the color. Build up the intensity as desired.
* GUERLAIN Terracotta Khol Kajal – dott the pen along the lash line, both upper and lower, pushing the color into the lashes then with a small pencil brush smoke in the line breaking down that pencil.
*ARDELL individual lashes complete the look! And don’t forget to add two coats of your favorite mascara!
*Her skin was perfected with Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation , Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Fair and set with Hourglass Powders in Diffused Light – center of the face, and Dim Light – around the face/contour.
* Lips were topped with Too Faced creme lipstick in Nude Beach.
And of course I reached out for my most coveted products when it comes to prepping her skin: Jurlique Moisture Replenishing Cream, Herbal Recovery Eye Cream and probably one of my most favorite mists: Rosewater Balancing Mist.
