Suelyn Medeiros.... "Beauty Close Up"

I have had several people hit me up about this look I did on Suelyn in the winter issue of J'Adore Magazine. So I will go step by step on how to get this look yourself!

I sprayed her face down with MAC Fix+ Spray as I posted in an earlier blog entry. I used Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer mixed with MAC Strobe Cream, to prep the skin. I concealed her eye area with Physician's Formula Light Concealer (Yes, I said Physician's Formula)..lol. I LOVE that as a highlight and base!! I used Nude eyeshadow from Smashbox to warm her eye are back up. A hint of MAC Bisque on her lid to make it pop just a little. MAC Smolder Eye Kohl in her water line, and lots of mascara from Lancome.
They wanted the girls to look clean, and simple...but we all know the "no make up" look takes more make up than normal for some reason:) I used concealer all over her entire face blended into the skin with a blush brush. High Def Liquid Concealer by Smashbox in Med/Dark. Set it all with a translucent powder, and contoured her face with a bronzer from NARS called Silvana (which they don't seem to have anymore:( A touch of Desire Blush from NARS on her apples. Her lip was just a mix of the same concealer and a lip gloss called Pixel by Smashbox.

Suelyn was a definite pleasure to work with! I will post her next shoot with me very soon!

Grammy Time Again...

It's that wonderful time of year when all of the fabulous people in the music industry celebrate their craft, and party like the rock stars they are! I had the pleasure of doing make up again this year for one of those rock stars...Michelle Williams.

Michelle's skin was so radiant, and her new hair cut rocked....styled by LA's own China Upshaw! I like the "less is more" look with make up on Michelle. She has a great face already, so I didn't want to hide that with lots of elements...so we just worked with a hot lip this time. She was glowing on that red carpet!

Here she is at Maxwell's Grammy party..we did the smokey eye for this event with white eyeliner in the water line.
