Fresh Glow

Rock Steady Baby!

        Inspiration- Gwen Stefani 

 The Look

Gwen Stefani realness served into today's post!! I remember the first time I heard Tragic Kingdom, I thought it was the radest piece of music I have ever heard. Gwen has always been my inspiration when it came to fashion or makeup. She turned me on to the red lipstick and I never looked back! Ha! Her personality was also what had me so infatuated with her. She wasn't quite girly, she had her own rad style, the music she listen too was not of the top 100 charts and her hair and makeup choices where always eccentric. She was the prime example of what it is to be divergent of the feminine.


Who is your fashion/makeup icon?

Truth: I do not have freckles. Tricked you haha!
I was practicing a new technique on how to apply bronzer and I have become obsessed with the outcome. If you see in the pictures above I have bronzed the area of my face that would natural get bronzed with the sun ( top surface areas on the face). Meaning the forehead, top of nose and cheeks, brow bone and chin. Another way to give the illusion that you have been out in the sun  is to add freckles to your look. Freckles are also a great way to make you and your skin appear youthful.
For the freckles I used Mac Up For Ever 5 Camouflage Creme Palette in No.4, this palette is great for any skin tones to create any shade for the freckles. And all I did was grab two different sized liner brushes and placed the dots on my face ( make sure the placement is not perfect, for the point is to make them look natural) and I pushed it into my skin with my ring finger to blend it into my skin. 

Let me know what you guys think of this trick!

The Golden Series (Portfolio Work)

                 Ladies this month is the Golden Month.  I love the beautiful colors for Christmas and mostly the metallic colors!! With my models I created both a golden eye look with a winged liner. With the models I stuck with the same golden palette but changed the cat eye shape to create a simple and dramatic eye. The way you shape you eyes with eyeliner can determine the shape you want your eye to reflect (ex. almond, round, to elongate the eye). When using liner I prefer to use gel liner (Ex. Mac Liner in 'Blacktrack') because it create's precision when it comes to your lines. I would love to see you ladies re-create this look for any holiday events or just because you can!!
