The ‘no makeup’ makeupSaturday, April 9th, 2011 at 8:22 pm
The idea of the no makeup makeup is something that as an artist I’ve really tried to explore and develop throughout my career. It’s often easier to beautify a face with the use of many products but the real art of makeup for me is being able to enhance a persons beauty using very little.
I wanted to explore this idea on a recent test with my good friend and model Kirstie Bennett who has recently signed with FM models. Kirstie has incredible skin and stunning bone structure which I wanted to bring out.
We played with illuminating products and very little concealer where needed to perfect the skin and give it a translucency. I wanted her face to have one strong feature and with my love for the fuller brow I decided that this element would give an edge to the natural pared down face.
To get the look I used the following products -
MAC Strobe liquid on the face and body.
Laura Mercier brow pencil in Dark blonde.
I like to use this concealer when I want a very natural finish. It comes in very pale tones too which I like to mix and the creamy texture blends well into the skin.
Makeup forever High definition powder.
Vaseline on the lids and cheekbones.
