Before & After: MAC Smokey Eyes and Nude Lips

Hi Bellas,

Happy Friday!  I wanted to share a look with you I did a few weeks ago in Charlotte.  I made over one of my new good friends Suzanna from Sedona Lace.  If you're into a good smokey eye and nude lip, this one is for you!  Check it out!
I was in Charlotte for a Sedona Lace Photoshoot.  I did a smokey look on the model that Suzanna loved so I decided to recreate it on her.  It's essentially nude on the lid and the liner is smudged to give a smokey look.  I used my Neutrals palette which is made up of mainly MAC shadows in a custom z-palette.  We also went with a nude lip.  I used a MAC Pro lipstick called Fleshpot which looked great on both her and my model.

For skin I went with my trusty Graftobian Warm Super Cream Palette.  Suzanna is out in the sun a lot but wisely shields her face from the harmful rays.  As a result, I wanted to bring back some more color and warmth to her face to match her body.  This palette allowed me to perfectly mix and match shades.
I also made sure to use an anti-shine as Suzanna by admission is pretty oily.  She had never used an anti-shine before and was amazed at how it mattified her t-zone.  I recommend the Face to Face Matte Anti-shine which is part of the Alcone at Home Program and available in my webstore.  It's small enough to throw in your purse or pocket for touch-ups.  Allure magazine event mentioned it as part of their Ultimate Oscar Beauty Kit.
And the final look!  Smokey but not too dark with glowing, bronzed skin and nude lips.


Hope you enjoyed.  Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
