~ The BOLD and the Beautiful, Playing with Blues! ~
January 12, 2010
Stephanie isn’t a big fan of makeup and well, who can blame her? With a full time job and a heavy college schedule, this lady is lucky she has time to sleep! Well, as luck would have it, she had ONE night to relax and take a break from all the demands and I was invited to come join in on the break….and decided to bring my kit along just for kicks;)
Well, Stephanie was a good sport and a great model. She and I did a casual style makeup session/mini-lesson. Old school – relaxing on the floor, telling stories and talking makeup. For a girl who doesn’t wear makeup often, she was very bold when picking colors and chose some killer colors from my BEN NYE Collection…
Between, makeup, stories, snacks, more makeup, more stories, and then a yummy pasta dinner…we came up with something bold, BLUE and beautiful! The whole experience was just pressure-free and relaxing fun. So relaxed that I was completely not focused on technique and even forgot to put mascara on my model of the night;( While I know I owe Stephanie a better effort next time, I was still so happy to see the results in a few photos ERIC FADDEN took of the final result.
The majority of this look was completed with BEN NYE products. Please see the REVIEWS section in the menu on the right of this page for more info on some BEN NYE products In my kit;)
And thanks Stephanie for being such a fearless and beautiful model and great company to boot. Sometimes, just a night of doing makeup for the sheer fun and experimentation of it is the break we all need;)
