Longtime client and friend, Sadie from simplysadiejane (she blogs about fitness, and other useful things) was asking me about how she should be doing her makeup since she drastically changed her hair color (she used to be very dark. See other post here.) We had a little fun. One of my favorite things about this look was her lip color. I first moisturized her lips with my favorite lip product Bite and then blotted it down. I then softly outlined her lips in what I’d call a lip contour color, I used MAC Stone lip pencil. Then I used one of my new favorite lipsticks Tom Ford Luca (it’s often sold out but I found it in stock here, woohoo!) Then added a little Bobbi Brown Crystal gloss.Complexion: For her foundation, bronzer and contour I used Temptu Airbrush, but my recent favorite non-airbrush foundation is Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation (for those of us who do not have the time to airbrush ourselves every day, including myself!) Cle de Peau Concealer in Ocher, Tarte Cheek Stain in Fearless, and Guerlain Loose Powder Mattifying Veil in medium.
Eyes: Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer, MAC Eyeshadows in Bamboo, Saddle, and Embark. Mac Creme liner on top in black (dark brown would have also looked great,) and Lancome Khol eyeliner in Blanc on lower inner rim. Too Faced mascara and Kiss Individual lashes in short, medium and long. In her brows I used Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe and Anastasia Brow Pen in universal-light. And on her body I used Gleam in Rose Gold mixed with a little Gleam Bronze Gold. I’ve been talking about body glow products a lot lately because I love them. *Some things to be aware of when using Gleam: you’ll want to wait a couple minutes for it to dry and be careful when you’re getting in or out of your clothes. Other than that I haven’t had problems with it getting on my clothes. It’s easy to wash off or wash out, so that’s good.
Thank you to Jessica Janae for the photos. Isn’t Sadie adorable? I’ve recently started doing yoga again, to help with the neck and back issues I have from work. It’s starting to help but sometimes I want to switch it up a little. What are some of your favorite workouts to do?
