Every time I do a new shoot, I think to myself "THIS is one of my favorites by far!" But seriously, THIS is one of my favorites by far, haha! I love to create looks that are over-the-top, but not so much where you can't wear the look out. Tatev has the perfect face for this look; her big green eyes, the blonde hair and the facial structure fitted the image perfectly (and of course she was able to pull it off so well!) Lara C Kay did an AMAZING job on both her hair and Nare's as well and exactly how we imagined it to be. Thank you Lara! I wanted to list the products I used for any of you who want to re-create the look. If I am missing anything, feel free to ask away! (I blank out sometimes :/ ) So, for her face, of course I used my favorite foundation ERA Classified in both Y3 and Y5 and the Laura Mercier concealer in SC-2 for her under eyes. I have set in her make up with MakeUpForever HD loose powder. Her eyebrows are filled in with a Blonde pencil by LeFemme and filled in with Cork by MAC. The fun part, EYES!: The base eyeshadow I used is YDK from Urban Decay and Carbon and Wedge in the crease by MAC. I have used a goldish glitter by MakeUpForever on top of the base color. Unfortunately, they do not label their products with names and in this case, nor a number. But all their glitters are beautiful! Just make sure you use a seal. Bobbi Brown black gel liner was used to line the upper lashline and to smudge out the corners. Her top lashes are #48 (Beauty Mark, Glendale) and the bottom lashes are from Naimie's...unfortunately, I do not know the number, but they have only one of this kind if you skim through their lashes. I added crystal studs to the end of the bottom lashes to add flare to the "circus" theme. Her inner bottom line is penciled in with a white eyeliner from MakeUpForerver. As for her cheeks, I have contoured it with the Smashbox Contour palette and Illamasqua blushes in both Kiss and Sin. I have lined her lips with Vino by Mac and used 2 different shades of lipsticks to give it some dimension. The outter corners are Gareth Pugh and Russian Red on the inside, both by MAC. I THINK that's about it...what a long list! lol. Let me know what your thoughts are on the look. Hope you enjoyed it <3
