Jemma new exactly the style and look she was after, and had brought a couple of pictures to her trial. She chose a strong bold eye with a flawless dewy skin and natural pink lips and cheeks.
Jemma has beautiful big brown eyes, which lent themselves well to a heavier style of eye makeup. Due to using darker eyeshadows and some with a little fall out I started with Jemma’s eye makeup first before applying her foundation. I do this often as it allows for fallout, which can be easily cleaned prior to foundation.
I began by using the Evolve taupe from the brow palette all over the mobile lid and blended it up and into the crease, this formed my neutral base for the darker shades. I then used Urban Decay in Hustle all over the mobile lid and lightly blended it into the inner corner and crease. I used Urban Decay “ Sin“ near the inner corner and onto the outer edge of the crease, just onto the brow bone. I used Urban Decay “sidecar’ in the inner corner and just under the outer corner of the brow to help highlight the brow bone.
Jemma has lovely brows, which I accentuated by using the Youngblood Mineral Brow Palette “dark” – defining her arch and opening up her eyes. ( I used the palette gel to keep the brows in place)
In order to further enhance Jemma’s eyes I used Youngblood Mineral Gel Liner “Eclipse” placing it into her water line and also on the top of her lash line. I winged the eyeliner slightly to achieve a more almond shape to her eyes.
On her lashes I used the Ardell individual clusters, placing them on the outer corner of her eyes – stepping them down 2x long, 2xmedium and 2xshort. I love using the individual lashes even though they are a little bit finicky at the time, they appear very natural and don’t feel like you’re wearing them at all.
On Jemma’s face I used the Youngblood Mineral Primer all over her face and eyes. In order to achieve Jemma’s flawless look I used Element 2 Canvas Blend Airbrush foundation #4. I also used the Element 2 Bronzer to contour her cheekbones and temples. I used the Youngblood Mineral Radience in Sundance to further enhance the cheekbones, by using both the contour and highlighter.
On the cheeks to give a dewy finish I applied the Youngblood Crème Blush in “tropical” and then used the Evolve Blush in “Heaven Scent” to just dust over the top, adding depth and longevity to the blush.
