So once again I was asked to do said combination and I had a pretty young model to work on. So instead of a full blown glamorous red lip/liner combo, I chose to tweak the liner into a different shape and keep the skin looking ethereally sheeny. It's very hard to explain this but my main concern was how it would look on the final pictures. I hope my behind-the-scene photos will do it justice. Anyway here's Alex without makeup.
Face Prep: Alpha-H Age Delay Cleansing Oil, Decléor Aroma Cleanse Cleansing Water, Decléor Life Radiance Double Radiance Cream, Shu Uemura Brightening UV Under Base Mousse, Decléor Nourishing Lip Balm.
As you can see Alex is young and has beautifully clear skin with a bit of darkness under the eye. I didn't want to wing the liner out like how you'd naturally do on a glamorous look. Instead I wanted to do a dip downwards or an inverted liner focusing on the lower eye instead. Hopefully the following pictures will help explain it better.
Here's Alex after makeup.
Foundation: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, Givenchy Mr Light, YoungBlood Natural Mineral Foundation.
Eyes: YSL Dare To Glow in No 1, YSL Waterproof Eye Pencil in Black Ink, MAC Fluidline in Black Track, YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking Mascara in Deep Black, Magnifibres, Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara in Black.
Eyebrows: Shu Uemura Hard Formula Brow Pencil in Seal Brown, Gold Mascara.
Cheeks: MAC Taupe Blush, Burberry Fresh Glow, YSL Dare To Glow in No 1.
Lips: MAC Lipmix in Crimson.
Powder: Jurlique Rose Silk Finishing Powder.
Here's a closeup of the look.
And one of Alex dressed in character and looking down.
What do you think? Enough of a twist on this classic look to make it look fresh and modern?
