FALLEN; A BOLD BEAUTY STORY

Shot 1. I used Armani’s Eye Pallet 1 out of their 2012 Bronze collection. Iblended the blue-green of the colours and the turquoise together over the eye lid to get this beautiful Mediterranean  colour. I used the shimmering white to highlight the inner corner of her eye and a little on the temple. I chose a soft coral lip colour to add a bit of warmth to the face. MAC lipstick in Real Sexy  was my choice here. Tip, for lips that are naturally darker blot them out using a little of your foundation. To finish I’ve swept Becca Cosmetic’s mineral blush Flowerchild  under Ollie’s cheeck bones to give her face a little contouring and warmth to her porcelain complexion.

Shot 2. (gif) This is one of my favourite looks of this story. I love the contrast between the metallic silver and grey on the eye and the intense red on the lips. There’s a really 80’s drama. I used Nars Duo Eye Shadow in Paris . I applied the silver pigment over the entire eye lid first and then lightly contoured eye with the grey. This will give the eye a little depth and shape. To give the eye some drama smudge some of the grey into the top and bottom lash line before pumping up those lashes with YSL Mascara,Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking . Don’t Forget to curl those lashes before.

I’m obsessed with Tom Fords lip stick’s ATM, their pigments are so powerful and unique. They stay true to colour when shooting them and give good wear. Let’s be honest though, with packaging like that who’s not going to want to re-apply. I used Carnal Red in this shot and paired it up with one of his nail colours Cherry Lush.

Shot 3. Continuing the metallic eye theme and poppy lip I used Becca Cosmetics Jewel Dust in mint green on the eye. It’s basically a loose powder eye shadow you can apply on its own or over other shadows to intensify or add a sheen too. Continuing my Tom Ford lipstick addiction I’ve used his Cherry Lush lipstick on the lips. Instead of adding a blush to contour the face I added a little colour by using Nars Casino Bronzing Powder which I have applied on the temple area and under the cheek bones to give warmth and shape. It’s a warm golden brown bronzer with a gold shimmer through it that works perfectly as a all over bronzer, contouring and blush. Tip, add lightly to your eye socket for a summer non makeup look!

Shot 4. (last image) In true 80’s glam I just couldn’t go past YSL’s Lilac Sky Ombres 5 Lumieres Pallet. There’s 5 purple tone colours to layer with and the pigments are intense. Maybelline have a new range of Super Stay lipsticks. I’m not convinced on the whole long wearing thing as it all tends to be dry and cakey but these lippys are pretty soft and yummy. I used Eternal Rose here on Ollies lips. Last but not least I used L’Oreals Lash Architect 4D on her lashes which I applied twice top and bottom. Just to give volume and thickness.

Hair Notes I used L’Oreal Professional range on Ollies hair. I blow dried using Tecni Art Volume Lift. It’s a good hold mousse that has a spray nozzle. So much more convenient to use. You can spray straight onto the roots and mid lengths as you blow dry. I tonged Ollies hair using L’Oreal Proffessionals Volume PLI  just to protect her hair and add a little extra hold. I used Elnett Satin Hold & Shine spray by L’Oreal to set the hair once I had styled and through out the day. It gives great hold, a natural shine and it can be brushed out and reset all day long!!
