Once again, Makeup artist Pat Mc Grath creates a flawless glamorous face with the perfect balance of reserved, sophisticated makeup that anyone can wear to feel like a million bucks.
To achieve the skin, I recommend mixing a luminous fluid like Lorac (click here)with your liquid foundation to create that intense glowing skin.
Dust a light brown shimmer shadow sweeping out of the lids, apply a ton of mascara, and use an orange red lipstick on the lips. If you would like the lips glossy, add a clear gloss only to the center of the bottom lip.
The 20's and 30's were the obvious inspiration here. The color story for eyes was gold and amethyst shadows on the eyes, concealed eyebrows with a pencil creating a thin line, and burgundy lips with a center bottom lip of gloss. My suggestions to achieve this look are below:
First line the entire eye with a black eyeliner, the inside rim, the top rim and on top of the lash line.
For the eyes I am going to suggest this eye palette as they have all the colors (and more) needed to achieve this look. The Dior artist palette (click here).
Use the perfect shade of a pinkish beige on the lid, in corner of eyes, and just slightly under the corner of the eye with a small angled brush. Use the mauve color on crease of eye and smudged outward and under the remaining part under the eye and outward to connect with the outward sweep of the top.
Again since we are dealing with the 20's and 30's we would like a thing eyebrow so either bleach yours, or conceal them and create a thin shape with a pencil.
you need a burgundy lip color suitable to your skin type, but definitely a darker shade for everyone than usual. Try to point the top of your lip a little for the look. That was the look back then. Top off with a clear gloss just on the center of the bottom lip for that extra added shine!
This look was Inspired by models from the '70s with makeup done by Francois Nars. The look was dark wet eyes, bleached eyebrows (to really make the eyes stand out) and matte lipstick. Suggestions by me to achieve this look are below.
Try colors like hunter green, dark grey, navy blue all over the lid and smudged under the eye. Then take a completely clear lip gloss or Vaseline and dab on the lid to create that wet look. I definitely do not recommend this look for just any occasion, this is definitely a special occasion night time look.
This is a diverse space which will include my own personal inspiration when it comes to makeup, beauty, and useful information on makeup application. Please keep in mind, I am not claiming to say I did the makeup in all of these photographs, but they definitely inspire me one way or another. The ones that I do makeup on I will credit myself.
I definitely do not want this blog to be repetitive or bore you on the same subjects most other makeup blogs cover (trendy celebrity topics) or constant reviewing on every single product that comes to market. I want to help sustain ways to work with what you have, in ways that you may never have thought of before.
I will publish monthly columns which include tips and advice from actual makeup consultations I conduct with clients. All information will be anonymous, of course.
Thanks so much for viewing, and I hope you enjoy!
