Edge Of Never Shoot: Rose Gold Eyes

This shoot has taken forever for me to post, but better late than never! 
I loved being a part of this inspirational mock shoot with my talented friends Perrywinkle Photography and Camilla Photography. Perrywinkle came up with this inspiration from a previous book that she read called “Edge Of Never”. It is about two people in love on a runaway road trip. Teale was our beautiful model portraying “Camryn” and Ghent was our lovely “Andrew”. I went for a very romantic braided ponytail and smokey rose gold eyes. This shoot was meant to be very passionate to show the love between the two, and Teale and Ghent were perfect! Learn how to get this gorgeous look below!

1. With the Stila Ethereal trio, apply the lightest “champagne” color to the inner tear ducts of the eyes. Apply the “gold” color to the entire lid. Apply the middle “Deep brown” color to the outer corners in an angled/sharp shape. Blend with BB Blending Brush.
2. Apply MAC Cranberry to the center of the lid with the BB eye smudged. Go back and reapply a small amount of the “Champagne” Stila color over the Cranberry shadow. This will give a glowing “rose-gold” effect.
3. Time for eyeliner! Apply a thin to thick line starting at the inner corner and working your way outward using Guerlain liquid. Make sure you thicken and wing it upward at the end.
4. Apply your Ardell Wispy lashes with some lash glue, preferably DUO Clear glue.
5. Apply your desired amount of Trish McEvoy mascara to the falsies.

Shine On

One of the most requested looks that I get from clients daily for their makeup is a “glowing complexion”. A dewy face paired with natural eyes is a perfect look for any bride, the reason being, a highlighted face looks as if it has perfect lighting on it no matter what angle. Makeup trend setters, JLo and Kim Kardashian are known for their sun kissed faces, but how do they get that youthful shine every day. Light colors draw areas forward, while dark colors push them back, employing these techniques together let you manipulate light and shadow on your face to create a slimming illusion. Below you will learn simple tips to my routine to achieve that desired every day glow!
How do I get this glowing skin without making my face super sparkly?
Its all about where you apply it. You dont want to just put you highlighter all over your face, there are certain areas where it goes to make those features pop and stand out. If applied all over face it will look to shiny and almost appear like you are sweating. {See below where to apply}
Stay away from highlighting pimples, puffy skin, dark circles or anywhere you have fine lines. doing this will draw attention to those areas because highlight catches light and accentuates the areas where applied. So stick to the main areas.
Highlighting for all Shades
Light Skin Tones: Lighter skin tones (particularly porcelain & fair skin) are best flattered with pink, cream, off white shades but anything with a golden base will just result in an orange looking finish.

Medium Skin Tones: Medium skin tones are best suited with shades which are a little in between such as soft 
golden colours and rose gold colours but you’ll want to avoid anything dark or light or you’ll risk looking too pink or too orange.

Dark Skin Tones: Darker skin tones are best suited with golds and bronze shades but anything to pink or too light will look very unflattering on the skin.

Very Dark Skin Tones: Skin tones which are very dark (almost/does look black) is better off sticking to warmer and darker shades such as burgundy’s, dark chocolates, coppers and any dark bronzey shades.

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 
Spray your Dior Flash (4) onto your stippling brush (1).
Lightly buff the Dior air foundation into the skin with your brush until completely blended evenly.
I know the Dior flash is used as a spray on foundation, which you can do as well, but for this look I like to buff it in the skin a little bit so it has a thinner application and can be more controlled.
Apply your NARS highlighter with the same stippling brush buffed along the cheek bones, on the forehead, and sides of nose. My favorite colors from NARS are Copacabana and Laguna. Blend these two colors together to get the ultimate bronzed glow.
These Illuminators can be worn over, under or mixed with foundation.
Apply your loose setting powder (2) lightly dusted all over the face.
 Use this sparingly to achieve that dewy look. I only apply it on my chin, jawline and forehead and leave the cheeks & nose powder free.
With a small shadow brush dust MAC’s Nylon (7) down the bridge of the nose and on the cupids-bow. This is my favorite product for highlighting. Yes is it an eyeshadow but I love the color and it gives a pearlescent shine to the skin.
Use the same eyeshadow (7) to highlight the brow bone and the inner tear ducts.
Apply MAC’s Cork (8) to the corners of the eyes very lightly because you want this color to barely show.
Glue on your natural lashes (6) and set them with Clear mascara.
Apply your lashes very close to your natural lash line. Since no eyeliner is used in this look, the closer you get to your lashes the more natural they will look. 
*Why use clear mascara instead of black? 
This gives a very natural look with the lashes instead of making them really dramatic, as well as blending them with the natural lash without adding an extra coat of color. 
Complete your look with Dior’s “Pink Sponge” lipstick
This long-lasting, and nourishing lip sheen is a perfect hue for any event, day or night. I wore this pinky-peach color on my wedding day and absolutely loved it.
