DIVA DOES… Electrified

DIVA DOES… Electrified

For the ELECTRIC PICKS shoot, the beauty looks were pretty simple…

My love Christopher obviously needed a LOT of work… he’s real hard on the eyes ;) 

For him, I smoothed on some Embyrolisse Lait-Creme Concentre to prime the skin and then added a sheer wash of MAC Face & Body foundation, popped by MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Naturals in two shades for subtle contour. Lips were a simple swipe of Shiseido Benefiance Lip Treatment. Done and dusted.

For Kacie, I also started with Embyrolisse followed by MAC Face & Body. We wanted flawlesss, luminous skin so I added Victoria’s Secret Beauty Pro Radiant FX Face Illuminator to the bridge of the nose, the cheeks and the cupid’s bow of the lip. I dusted on MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Naturals in one shade deeper than Kacie’s natural tone for a soft, light contour. 

For that sexy next-to-nude pout, I prepped lips with Peter Thomas Roth Lips to Die For Pink Bombshell Lip Balm. I pressed a Shiseido Pureness Blotting Paper over them to remove any excess product. Then I mixed MAC High Tea and Myth lipsticks to create the perfect shade to complement the eye, which anchored the look.

For the eyes, I started with MAC Studio Finish concealer as a base. I swept MAC Brule mixed with Blanc Type  on the full lid. From lashline to crease and extended out for the cat-eye, I layered MAC pigments in Most Darling. I also ran this shade below the lower lashline. I then added depth and dimension by patting on NARS Night Breed closer to the lashline on top and bottom. I rimmed the eye with L’Oreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner in Carbon Black – from inner to outer corner on top and from outer corner stopping midway on bottom. I smudged the liner into the shadows for a partied-all-night effect. I finished with coats and coats of Lorac Multiplex 3D Lashes Mascara.  Badass beauty at its best.
