This season its all about masculine suits for women with a touch of a feminine touch thrown in. If you are embracing the masculine trend then its important to add the makeup to have a little contrast with the clothes. In this Elle magazine fashion editorial I did the makeup but had both girls but giving them both a different look that should inspire you on how to wear your makeup id you decide to embrace this trend.

The first girl we chose a berry lip using one of my favourite lip shades from Mac Hang Up as its a perfect shade of a deep berry that looks amazing on. I kept her eyes fresh using the shade Hey from the Mac warm neutrals pallette and then added a white shimmer shadow from urban decay on the centre of the lids and through the crease of the eye I used a taupe shade to create definition. For the highlighting and contouring I used the Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette and applied the blush from the palette on the cheeks as well. For her foundation I used the Mac Face and Body to keep her skin looking really dewy.

For her foundation I used the Bobbi Brown stick foundation and contoured using the Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette.
