This was my first time for many things: using bold bright colors, working with different textures on eyes and more
exiting - working with a more darker skin that I usually do.
My model Courtney is such a beauty! She has wonderful eyes shape and full lips and I was very inspired to do
on her. She only begins her professional career as a model but I’m sure she will be very successful.
We did two looks, as usual ;) For the first look we decided to do bold bright lips and subtle eyes. When I say
“subtle” I mean simple eye contouring with gold shimmer eyeshadows on the upper lid and violet smokey color in the
crease. These colors are very flattering to my model and emphasize her green eye color. I mixed white and red colors
OCC lip tar to achieve this bright pink color that applies
really smoothly on skin. To
finish this look I added a row of individual false eyelashes.
For the second look we changed background to yellow and did bold eye color that compliments with everything. I used
Teal” that has several shades in it from green to blue that look wonderful with either flash or real
life photography. By the way this cream eyeshadows are rather cheap and very pigmented so it’s easy t work with them
and I bought several of them to mix, try it yourself!
