A few days ago I was doing make-up & hair on a beauty photoshoot. The brief was to create a healthy & beautiful look focusing on creating perfect glowing skin using earthy, coppery & rusty warm tones. Our model Alice had wonderful skin with lots of freckles and I absolutely love these little speckles of colour. For this this look I decided to use NYX Tinted moisturiser (Tan) to enhance the freckles without the cover of a foundation. Under the eyes, on the slightly redder area around the nose and above the top lip I used the light part of NYX Wonder Stick and the darker contouring shade on the edges and under the cheek bones here. I used NYX Wonder pencil to correct minor flaws, here. With my NYX A Push-up Bra for your eyebrows I filled in the brows. I used the light highlighting shade of NYX Sunkissed Radiant Finishing Powder under the eyebrows & at the top of the cheek bones, then brushed the peach & pink tones in the middle of the cheeks and mid-brown shades on the edge and under the cheeks bones. On the eyelids I applied and blended the plum and golden shades from the Smokey Shadow Palette, here. I lined then blended a small amount of Jumbo Eye Pencil on the eyelid’s waterline ( top and bottom – shade French Fries ), here. After using curling Alice’s eyelashes I carefully applied NYX Doll Eye Mascara on the top and bottom lashes, here. For the lips I used NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colour ( shade Thalia ). To finish the look I applied a little highlighter from the Sunkissed Finishing Powder on the bridge of the nose, and a tiny amount just above the lips.
For the hair I used Bumble & Bumble Styling Creme, here on damp hair, dried the hair upside down, backcombed it a little and then gently gathered it back, tied it with a hairband and twisted it into a soft bun. I picked a few stands, and used a little water to create gentle curls. I love the simplicity of this look, it is very flattering with defined brows, eyes and cheekbones,
