3/6/18 - First Blog
*awkward intro* Hello! I've decided to start blogging my shoots/events. Just the experience of it all, favorite products that I used, etc. I don't get to put all the photos I want to on my website/instagram and I also don't put all the products I use, so I'm hoping to do that more here! If you have any suggestions on how to make it better, let me know because I'm just winging it. Lol. Thanks for reading!
So last weekend was the Oscars which means awards season is finally over! I loved getting to do more red carpet opportunities on my own this year [I've only assisted in the past] but it was definitely tiring. Luckily, I got to end the season on the beautiful Rouge Apker. Rouge is an amazing model and has been my friend for a couple of years now, so I was thrilled that I got to mix work and friends!
She was attending the legendary Vanity Fair after party so we knew that we had to do a gorgeous look! She wanted something smokey/sexy but not the same black smokey eye we've done in the past. I feel like that's the only downside of doing someone's makeup a lot. You get stuck in the same looks because you know they will look good and it starts to get easy. She sent me some inspo pics and we ended up choosing this smokey look with a strong black liner on the lower lash line, smudged out winged liner, and a glittery lid. We also wanted to keep her skin bronzy/glowy because that always suits her super well.
Hope you guys like the look, here's what I used:
SKIN PREP // Inglot AMC Illuminator in 61 + Benefit Porefessional
BASE // Makeup Forever HD Foundation + Colourpop No Filter Concealer + Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Powder
BRONZE & GLOW // MAC Bronzer in "Give Me Sun" + Youngblood Creme Blush in "Tropical Glow" + Anastasia Beverly Hills Highlight in "Sun Dipped" + Colourpop Super Shock Cheek in "Wisp"
BROWS // Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in "Ebony" + Benefit Gimme Brow
EYES // Viseart Neutral Mattes Eyeshadow Palette [black and medium brown shades] + Charlotte Tilbury Eyeliner [smudged out on the lower lash line & in a wing on the upper lash] + Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in "Nillionaire" [on the lid] + MAC Pigment in "English Gilt" [on the inner corners]
LASHES // Morphe Lashes in "Malibu"
LIPS // MAC Lip Liner in "Boldly Bare" + Loreal Lipstick in "Fairest Nude"
Thank you to anyone that cares. See you soon? [If I don't get lazy and give up on this.]
