~ Smokey Look ~
January 27, 2010
Shannon is a stunning blonde and bride-to-be with amazing features but didn’t seem to be aware of just how lovely she was. When she gave me free reign to design her look for her photo shoot I was excited and there was only one look I could think of…the smokey eye.
Shannon has fair skin, amazing blue eyes and beautifully shaped lips. For her focus, I felt the contrast of dark colors around the eyes would bring a depth to the look while still maintaining a classic elegance.
Here is Shannon with her completed look and beautiful veil accessory.
For Shannons look, I started with a medium coverage foundation and set with powder. Then I filled in her natural brow shape using a medium brown shadow. Next, I primed her eyes and gave her a smokey look using dark browns and golds and topped it off with a pair of Andrea false lashes in #53 on the outer corners. Finally, a hint of blush and a neutral lip color completed the look.
Her final look is sultry and sensual and still exudes a certain softness.
…and to Shannon for being such a wonderful woman to work with and allowing me to be a part of her special day!
