For those who don't frequent makeup message boards and blogs, that's "Face of the Day."
If you wear makeup, enjoy makeup, want to know more about how to do makeup, or just want to try a new look for an event, you are missing out if you live in my area and aren't going to see Chris at the Macy's MAC counter. Aside from being super talented as a makeup artist, Chris kind of does everything, from styling to sewing to cooking. I'm convinced one day I'll he'll be contouring my cheekbones and say, "Well, back when I was in the space program..." He's pretty much delightful.
Anyhow, I have him do my makeup fairly often, which is often a challenge for him since he tries to use products I don't have, and I have a lot of MAC stuff. Last night he did my makeup and it was great, but I think he was even more excited than I was about how it turned out. He really outdid himself:
For those who care about such things, the eyes are:
Paint in Chiaroscuro as a base
Shadows in Filament (highlight, inner corners), Vex (middle lid and crease), Freshwater (crease, lower lashline) and Carbon (outer V, deep crease and upper lash line). Lower lashline also lined with Technakohl Liner in Smoothblue. Full false lashes (#32, I think) on upper lashes with Zoom Lash mascara.
Lips are lined in Oak lip pencil, filled in with Viva Glam II lipstick with Viva Glam VI Special Edition gloss on top. I am pretty sure he used Select SPF 15 foundation (NW20), though I'm not sure of the powder or blush he used. My bad.
