On Monday, I shared the stunning shoot I did in Texas a little while back and today, thanks to so many inquiring about how to recreate the hair and makeup that my ridiculously talented makeup artist managed to whip up on me. I loved how she played up my hazel eyes with the vibrant purple hued shadows and created lush beach waves interwoven in with a loose french braid wrapped just right. I know what you’re thinking if we all just had makeup artists and hair stylists for sisters we’d be golded. I swear she whipped this look up in about 10 minutes. I can tell you that this will be seen hitting the streets this fall with my chunky fall grandpa sweaters and leather skinnies.
- Use the Smashbox 24 hr eyeshadow primer to ensure long lasting eye makeup & vibrant pigmentation
- With a fluffy brush (my favorite is MAC 224) buff Cocoa Bear in the crease
- Using a flat brush (suggested MAC 239) pack Bitter all over the lid just to the crease. Then with your fluffy brush take a little more Cocoa Bear to blend
- Rim the inner waterline with the pencil then blink so the product is deposited on the upper waterline as well.
- Line the lash line with a black long lasting gel eyeliner to intensify the coloration
- Add a couple coats of mascara plus some dense and dark lashes
- Finish by sweeping the Bite Beauty lip lacquer along the lip area
- To complete the eyes, fill in your brows using this genius brow kit
- The basics? This sheer glow foundation is my jam.
- Start by spritzing a sea salt or texturizing spray all throughout the hair then brush it out & scrunch
- Section hair and use the NuMe curling wand to create semi tight curls all throughout the hair
- Leave the curls to set, and once they are cooled, run your fingers through to create more volume & to break up the ringlets
- Lift hair near the root, in no particular fashion, and spray a boosting spray. This will create lasting volume, texture, and hold without the need to tease
- French braid a one inch piece back on both sides to secure in the back with a bobby pin
- Use bobby pins to secure the hair & create a decorate shape (we used a triangle)
