INSPIRATION:  “Girl with the Pearl Earring.”Tom Pecheux

FACE: The skin was replenished and perfected to appear lighter with transparency. EXTRA DIMENSION STROBE BLUSH in INTO THE PINK (AVAILABLE SPRING/SUMMER2017) blended over the top of the cheekbone for a multi-dimensional flush to skin.

EYES: EXTRA DIMENSION STROBE BLUSH in INTO THE PINK (AVAILABLE SPRING/SUMMER2017) blended through the crease of the eye to lightly accentuate.

LIPS: The natural colour of the lips were toned down with a bit of concealer and swept with EXTRA DIMENSION STROBE BLUSH in INTO THE PINK (AVAILABLE SPRING/SUMMER 2017) using the 217 BLENDING or 224 TAPERED BLENDING BRUSH for a barely there look to finish.

INSPIRATION:  “Inspired by the climate of what is happening right now: Empowered and Strong women who do it all on their own.”Diane Kendal

FACE: NEXT TO NOTHING FACE COLOUR (AVAILABLE SPRING/SUMMER 2017) buffed onto the face using the 190SH FOUNDATION BRUSH for a minimalist perfection to skin. NEXT TO NOTHING PRESSED POWDER (AVAILABLE SPRING/SUMMER 2017) applied sparingly to create a soft velvet matte skin.
POWDER BLUSH in FLEUR POWER swept over the apples of cheeks for a flush.

EYE: An electric, architectural, floating liner was drawn through the contour of the eye using CHROMACAKE applied with MIXING MEDIUM in EYELINER in the following shades: CYAN, GENUINE ORANGE, LANDSCAPE GREEN, MARINE ULTRA and TRUE CHARTREUSE. HAUTE & NAUGHTY LASH in HAUTE & NAUGHTY BLACK applied only to the roots of the upper lash line to amplify and define lashes. The brows were brushed up and filled as needed to naturally groom.

LIPS: LIP SCRUBTIOUS was used to exfoliate the lip and elevate its natural color. LIP CONDITIONER (TUBE) applied to condition and lightly moisturize lips to finish.

INSPIRATION: “Inspired by PJ Harvey, minus the colorful eyeshadow: She’s a little abstract, a conceptual, with a slightly tragic feel.”Aaron de Mey

FACE: M·A·C MATTE blended over the face to provide a matte finish to skin. PREP + PRIME SKIN REFINED ZONE strategically applied to refine, smooth and mattify skin. M·A·C STUDIO FINISH SPF 35 CONCEALER applied as needed to perfect, keeping the skin looking clean and matte.

EYES: BROW SET in CLEAR brushed up through the brows to naturally groom and set. The lashes were curled and then crowned with an application of the 2 LASH, followed with the 21 LASH for added volume, length and wispiness to the lash line. IN EXTREME DIMENSION LASH generously applied through the upper lashes to amplify and finish.

LIPS: LIP CONDITIONER (TUBE) applied to hydrate, soften and condition the lips.
