I got to work with an amazing group of ladies to conjure up another beautiful and flattering makeup to exhibit a collection (whose details I cannot give.)

So lets see how to get Tia's natural makeup look (products mentioned within the look).......

  • I cleansed the skin with Neutrogena Extra Gentle cleanser and dabbed some Estee Lauder Nutritious Hydarting cream on Tia's naturally radiant and good looking skin.
  • I used Smashbox Photofinish Light Primer to keep the foundation gliding better and paid an extra attention to the shine prone areas with a layer of Clarins Instant Smooth Perfect Touch.
  • Then I applied Shiseido Dual Balancing foundation on entire face and smoothened it with a buffing brush. I mixed O40 and O60 shades to get the perfect shade to match her yellow undertones.
  • I applied Kryolan  Supra foundation in the under eye area and areas where she needed some coverage to look photo-perfect.
  • I applied a very thin layer of Kryolan Transparent powder in TL 4 to keep the shine at bay and set the makeup. For dispersing powder I used a fluffy Lancome powder dome brush.
  • I added subtle contours on the eye crease, sides of the nose, under the cheek bone and the jaw line with BH cosmetics 28 neutral eyeshadow palette.
  • For the eyes, I prepped the lids with NARS Pro Prime Smudgeproof eyeshadow base. I used the lovely colors from Lancome eyeshadow quad in Chic to add accents and contours to her eyes.
  • I used the soft brown shade for contouring while the darkest warm cocoa brown went on the lids. I used the soft beige eyeshadow for highlighting hither thither. Curled her lashes and applied several coats of L'Oreal Volume million lashes mascara.
  • I filled her brows with MAC Dark Edge eyeshadow (my favorite till it gets over LE)
  • On the cheeks I used Max Factor Blush in English Rose and highlighted with Estee Lauder's Platinum Highlighting powder.
  • For her lips I dabbed on Estee Lauder Signature Lipstick in Mocha and gave a touch of darkness with a chocolate colored glossy lipstick from Oriflame Very me collection  with a touch of Lancome Juicy Tubes in Pamplemousse.
Please remember, since the photograph is in SEPIA tones you might not be able to appreciate the colors the way they have been applied. Please bear that in mind.

Hope you liked the look.
