A Makeup shoot!!

Recently I had a chance to work with talented photographer Adrian Gomes and a super-famous model Jaslene Gonzalez. It was a concept shoot where is Adrian wanted to create the looks of a woman who goes through different phases of life and potrait her surreal persona. It was quite a creative shoot and the model was very pretty and cooperative. Know more about Jaslene here.

Lets see how to do this happy makeup look..........

Adrian wanted a clean and bright makeup look that went par with the happy emotions of the model for the first part of the story. This is what I did -

  • I cleansed Jaslene's face with Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser and then applied L'Occitane's Angelica Hydration Cream for a supple and radiant glow.
  • I applied Clarins Instant Smooth Perfect Touch to mattify the shine prone areas of the face like T-zone and sides of the nose. For best results apply the primer in a circular motion.
  • For a flawless base I used Stila One Step foundation in Tan which has the results of a primer, foundation, concealer and powder in one product. For spot concealing and bit in the under eye area, I used Benefit's Boing Industrial Strength concealer with MAC 217 brush.
  • I did not use powder to set because of the property of the foundation and we wanted a semi matte dewy glow.
  • Although Jaslene had strong bone structure I accentuated the contours of her face with Shiseido Multi shade enhancer in Terracotta glow. The terracotta colored tan complimented her honey colored tan very well.
  • Then I traced the upper lash line and inner rims of the lower lids with Bourjois Khol and Contour 16 hr pencil in Brun Design. I smoked the liner with a pencil brush to smudge and soften any harsh lines.
  • I adore this amazing rosy plum shimmery eyeshadow from Inglot called AMC 48 and used it on the entire lid to create an amazing happy eye makeup look. The eyeshadow color reminds me of Cherry Blossoms and is perfect. I highlighted the brow bone and inner corners of eyes with MAC eyeshadow in Sunday Best. I used MAC Dark Edge to contour the crease and also used it for brow color.
  • Since Jaslene had beautiful lashes I enhanced them with L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes mascara in Black.
  • For a flushed effect I used my uber-favorite blush from Max Factor called English Rose. A soft pinky rose shade that accentuates and brightens any complexion or color.
  • Jaslene's lips were conditioned with Vaslene and then I applied Estee Lauder Signature Lipstick in Mocha to add a subtle wash of color to Jaslene's lips. Then topped it with Bourjois 3D lipgloss in Beige Elastic to add shiny accents.
There are some more looks to come and I am sure you'll love them too. Btw Jaslene was also featured in June's Elle Magazine and also in Grazia magazine.

Hope you liked the look.
