One of my favorite make-up looks for Spring '09. For this shoot on Jenna, I used a rosy pink lip color, a mosaic of petal pink on her cheeks and varied her eye color, using a base of light gold then switching it up between aubergine and aquamarine.
I used Hourglass Veil Fluid Oil-Free Foundation in Sand, a really luminous formula that fights the signs of aging. http://www.beautycloset.com/
All over the eye lid and in the crease, I applied NARS Single Eye Shadow Duo in Isolde, applying the darker gold first then sweeping the lighter gold on top. http://www.narscosmetics.com/
Next I applied Estee Lauder Pure Color in Berry Ice from the lash line to half the width of the eye lid as well as along the entire bottom lash line with a thin eyeliner brush. It is a high-density pigment so I only had to apply one coat. http://www.esteelauder.com/
For a couple of the shots, I swept Mark Mini Mark-It Stick for the Eyes in Marina as a thick eyeliner along the upper lash line. I love all four of the colors for Spring because they're very playful yet wearable. http://www.meetmark.com/
For a Spring lightly-bronzed look, I applied Elizabeth Arden Sun Goddess Bronzing Powder in Medium in the hollow of her cheeks, across the top of her forehead, down the bridge of her nose and under her jawline. I love this bronzer because when you swirl your bronzing or powder brush in it, it grabs mostly the bronze color but the perfect amount of the pink highlight. http://www.elizabetharden.com/
Next I used one of my favorite blush trios of all time, Scott Barnes Blush in Posh. With the darkest of the pinks, I swept it under her cheekbones. The medium pink was applied on the apples of her cheeks and the lightest pink above her cheekbones as a highlight. Scott's products are currently hard to find because he is in between backers so whenever one is listed on eBay, grab it! Or check with The Beauty Closet and see if they have any more in stock. http://www.thebeautycloset.com/
I applied a single coat of Shu Uemura gloss in PK382S, a must-have for Spring!
Here are three more of my favorite shots from the shoot:
