I feel like I say this on the cusp of every single season but right now I truly believe that fall is my VERY favorite.
Maybe it’s because I can’t wait to meet this little bundle or that it’s averaging 100 degrees a day or that makeup is just so much more fun in the fall. All I’m saying is that I’m ready.
Which is why I was itching to give Danielle a really dramatic fall style makeover.
She is incredibly beautiful naturally and is used to rocking a really light “beach babe” look which is perfection on her.
We wanted to have a little fun though, and do something she’d never seen in the mirror before…
After we took the photos I could tell the dark lip and dark eye was a little overwhelming to a beauty that’s used to going pretty much bare faced so I thought it would be fun to wipe that off and show her the look with something a little softer on the lips and a little more color in the cheeks. I LOVE the more wearable version of this as well:
What I used:
Argan Milk (For some moisture to start)
Hourglass Viel Mineral Primer
Maskcara IID Foundation (2nd generation)
Maskcara Blush in Ruby
I’m REALLY loving these Gel shadows lately, I’ve been using them on everyone. They have incredible pigment and are so user friendly when blending!
Milani Gel shadow in Bella Espresso on her crease and under her eye and Bella Caffe in the center of her lid.
I also used a strip of lashes on her bottoms (her top lashes were already huge!) MAC 32 Lash
YSL Mascara in Shocking (trying every mascara known to man!)
In her tearline all the way around I used IT Cosmetics Black Gel Liner
For the top lip I used Nars Lip Color in Train Bleu (and dabbed a bit of the Bella Caffe Gel shadow in the center of her lip)
For the bottom I used my usual Lip Liner ( NYX Taupe) and YSL #1 Nude Beige and bronzed her up a bit with Too Faced Milk Chocolate
