I was so excited to meet Yama. She is smart, funny and (as you can easily see) beautiful.
She is headed back to her Sophomore year of college next month so we thought it would be fun to get together before then and teach her some fun ways to spice up her look.
(side by side view)
She wanted so badly to get a “nude lip” and I tried probably 10 different lipsticks and glosses and none of them were the nude we were hoping for so I am still on the hunt!
but in the meantime this pinky nude (which actually photographed less pink than it was in person) looks gorgeous.
What I did:
First, her eyes. I used Lorac Pro Palette focusing around her peepers with Deep Purple and Garnet (which is a dark copper) on her lid above her pupil to the inner corner of her eyes. I love how the garnet made her eyes look so bright and sparkly! Next I lined her water line with Urban Decay 24/7 in Perversion and a added heavy coat of Benefit They’re Real mascara.
I filled her brows with Espresso, also from the Lorac Palette.
Tapped some Tarte Cheek stain in Tickled right in her apples.
I wanted to highlight to be very warm and only a couple shades lighter than her natural skin tone. If the highlight is too light or not warm enough it can tend to be ashy. I used Revlon Nearly Naked foundation in Cappuccino on her forhead, down the center of her nose, on her cheeks and under her eyes. Then contoured her nose and her cheek bones with Sable (again, from the Lorac Palette..) and added a little shimmer by way of my Illuminating mix.
Finished her look with a mix of nude, pink and brown lip colors that I can’t even begin to remember, sorry…stay tuned on that:)
Hope you all had a lovely weekend and that you love this makeover as much as I do:)
