I recently did hair and makeup for a beauty trend shoot for a local South African retail client. One of the looks was a natural flawless face and a bold red lip and for the hair a simple top knot. Here is how I created the look.

Face: I applied Estee Lauder Day Wear Cream all over the face and then buffed in Benefit Oxygen Wow Oh So Flawless Foundation and for concealer the Bobbi Brown creamy concealer under the eyes and around the nose.  I highlighted using a cream highlighter (no longer on the maket so try one of Topshop’s cream highlighter’s) on the top of the cheek bone up to the temple, on the bridge of the nose and on the cupid’s bow. For contouring I buffed in Benefit Hoola under the cheek bone, along the jaw line and on the temple.

Eyes/Brows: I applied Benefit cream shadow in birthday suit on the lid with a Mac 239 brush, I blended Mac Scuplt in the crease of the eye with a Mac 219 blending brush and then for extra intensity I applied Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in sable in the outer corner of the eye. I applied Inglot AMC Pure Powder pigment in no 14 on the lid and in the inner corner of the eyes. I brushed the brows upwards filled the brows using Benefit Browzing in light with a Mac 266 angle brush. I applied 2 coats of Maybelline Falsies Express Mascara.

Cheeks: I lightly dusted Mac blush in Peaches.

Lips: Applied lip balm, then traced the outline of the lips using Mac lip liner pencil in Brick and then applied with a lip brush Mac lipstick in Ruby Woo.

Hair: I spritzed the hair with Osis hairspray and then brushed the hair upwards into a high ponytail. I secured the hair and teased and then twisted the hair into a bun and pinned.

Nails: I applied Ciate Nail polish in Sand Dune.
