Dewy Skin, Hot Pink Lips, Glossy Eyes and The Blue Liner

Being a makeup artist means I get to play with amazing products, work with some gorgeous models and work the trends. For this shoot we wanted it to be young and fun but I also wanted to bring in elements of the beauty trends that I love.

The first look was all about the hot pink lips and the glossy eye of which both are big trends. Skin of course had to be flawless for the rest of the makeup to work (remember skincare is key here). Morgan has pretty great skin but I combined Benefit Oxygen Wow Oh So Flawless Foundation with Revlon Photoready Skinlights in Barelight to get that unbelieveable skin. Contouring is also so important here as it shapes her face. Remember contour under the cheek bones, on the forehead and along the jaw line. I used the Chanel Healthy Glow Powder here for that beautiful natural look.


For the eyes I went for the gloss look but instead of using lip gloss I went for the Elizabeth Arden 8hr cream as it has ther same effect, its not as messy and is great for your skin. The lips completes the look and I absolutely love this shade its one of my all time pic favs the Mac Candy Yum Yum.

The next look I just had to incorporate the blue its a massive trend and its a massive favourite of mine. There is something so cool about blue makeup whether its a liner or a smokey eye I can’t get enough of blue.I kept the rest of the look the same and then added the Lancome Artliner 24HR in Sapphire. Love this colour its like a colbalt blue and makes the whole look come alive.Having the right brushes is essential to get the skin right here, a great foundation buffing brush and a blending brush to seamlessly blend concealer is really important. You also need as great contouring brush to apply your bronzer or contour shade and remember less is more start with less and then build up.

Happy experimenting.
