This look begins with plump, hydrated skin. We used Agent Nateur Holi(oil) for a radiant glow. Immediately after, we applied Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation. Using a facial oil with this cream foundation is the secret to creating a fresh, dewy, skin-like appearance. This medium coverage foundation evens out skin tone while creating a beautiful satin finish. Using a flat foundation brush like the Kjaer Weis Blush/Foundation Brush, begin by applying the cream foundation in the center of the face and blend outwards. This will give an even, seamless blend.
Next, dot the Fitglow Conceal+ applicator under eyes, around nose and on any blemishes or areas you want to brighten or conceal. Using a flat foundation brush or your fingertips, we recommend blending upward towards the temple to create a natural lifted look.
Using the Jane Iredale Blending/Contouring Brush, apply Vapour Bronzing Powder in Eclipse to warm up the face and create a soft contour. A pro tip is to apply bronzer on all the points your face would naturally see the sun; across the forehead, down the temples, along cheekbones, the sides of the nose and finally down along the jawline.
To bring back color to the cheeks, we applied Jane Iredale PurePressed Blush in Mocha, a gorgeous rose bronze, to the apples of the cheeks. Using a light sweeping, upward motion toward the temples will provide a seamless blend of the contour and blush for a beautiful glowy complexion.
Next, using the Jane Iredale Dome Brush, set your complexion by applying a light layer of RMS “Un” Powder over your face, focusing on your T-zone to control shine and under the eyes to minimize creasing and give skin a soft focus, flawless finish.
A pro tip: Rather than buffing the product over skin and removing any foundation, dip brush into powder, tap off excess, and apply in a gentle rolling motion across the skin.
Next, using the Kosas Brow Pop Dual-Action Pencil, start by combing brows into place with the spoolie. Then, following the natural hair pattern, fill in any sparse areas with the pencil to add definition. For extra hold and a full, feathered effect, follow with Fitglow Protein Brow Gel
Onto the eyes! To give the eyes a beautiful metallic base, we used the RMS Eyelights Cream Eyeshadow in Flare on the lid. Using your finger or RMS Eye Polish brush, place product in the center of the lid and blend outward softening into the crease. These long wearing, crease proof shadows are perfect for adding a beautiful metallic finish to the eye and act as a beautiful base for other shadows. Next, using ILIA Necessary Eyeshadow Palette in Warm Nude, start with the Kjaer Weis Crease Brush to apply the warm medium brown shade in small circular motions through the socket to define the crease. To finish, blend the darkest brown shade into the outer corners and along lash line to create more dimension.
Next step, mascara and lashes! We used Jane Iredale Beyond Lash Mascara, known for creating major volume without any clumping or flaking. We recommend starting at the base of your lash and wiggling the wand in a side to side motion to really coat the lash. We finished off the look by applying Battington Lashes in Hepburn. These lashes are 100% silk and have a slight flare at the end, creating a sexy doe eye.
Onto the star of the show, the lips! Begin by lining lips with the Fitglow Vegan Lip Liner in Red to define and help the color stay. Finish by applying the Kjaer Weis Matte, Naturally Liquid Lip in the iconic shade KW Red. When applying a bold lip, a pro tip to keep lines crisp and prevent color bleeding, is to use a flat concealer brush or Kjaer Weis Angle Brush with a touch of foundation to draw along the lip line for a crisp, clean look.
