more warm & cozy fun

after my date with mathieu, i fell in LOVE with the warm & cozy shadestick, an amazing glittery copper.

my best friend geoff is getting married in october, and i’ll be doing the makeup for his beautiful bride, jessica. jessica is all about rich purples and fall themes involving pumpkins, so i immediately thought of warm & cozy!

the happy couple!

for a quick trial, i used warm & cozy as a base and blended the outer corner and into the crease with a shadow from MAC’s permanent line, antiqued. to combat all the shimmer on the base of her lid, i used MAC blanc type, a very light matte beige as a highlight. for a soft but precise line, i used MAC kohl power in teddy.

i am in LOVE with teddy! its a beautiful chocolate with just a hint of bronze and because its a kohl, it smudges softly and just leaves a beautiful smoky look.

jessica has uneven skin with some redness, so i spot concealed with CG smoothers concealer in fair. this is a *fantastic* concealer! i followed up by applying urban decay cream to powder foundation in illusion with my MAC 187 brush. this foundation is hands down the best i have ever used! you can layer it for heavy coverage, or just use it in spots – it gives the full coverage of a foundation but dries to a beautiful matte powder. as my mentor, kelsey deenihan told me, it dries like velvet and she uses it for almost all of her red-carpet beauties!

i finished up by giving jessica a light glow with MAC by candlelight mineralize skinfinish and a swipe of chanel rouge allure in pretty (DCed, alas) followed by stila lip glaze in kitten.
