Date and Location: last week – New York City

“Kate’s skin was polished; eyes were defined with smudged black liner and framed by strong brows. Her lips took center stage with a bold red lip.”


How to do it…

I prepped Kate’s skin with a rich moisturizer to create an all-over glow. I tapped a bit of Hydrating Eye Cream underneath the eye area and massaged Hydrating Face Cream onto the face and neck. I then applied Lip Balm onto her lips to make sure they were hydrated and smooth.


I applied Skin Foundation SPF 15 in Warm Beige all over Kate’s face, using a sponge for a light finish. I also used a little bit of Creamy Concealer in Warm Beige under her eyes to erase any under-eye darkness. Then, I paid special attention to the area around Kate’s mouth, ensuring that skin looked flawless. I do this whenever I apply a bolder lip color. For a pretty hint of colour, I applied Blush in Blushed on the apples of her cheeks. To ensure that her makeup lasted all night, I lightly dusted Sheer Finish Loose Powder in Pale Yellow onto her skin.

I wanted to her eyes to have a cool and imperfect look. To achieve this, I applied a lot ofSmokey Eye Kajal Liner in Noir into her water line and into the roots of the top and bottom lashes. I asked Kate to squeeze her eyes closed, and I then blended out any leftover color with the Smokey Eyeliner Brush. After curling her lashes, I applied a few coats of the Smokey Eye Mascara in Black on the top and bottom lashes to complete the dramatic look. Last but not least, to help frame and intensify the eyes, I exaggerated the brows by filling them in with the Brow Kit in Cement/Birch. Finally, I set them with the Natural Brow Shaper in Mahogany.

Using a tissue, I blotted any excess Lip Balm off of Kate’s lips. Then, I used the Retractable Lip Brush and carefully painted on a perfect dark red pout in Crimson Lip Color. I blotted her lips and then layered on a final coat of lip color for a seamless application. I softened any hard lines with a cotton swab to create a soft edge.
