Simply Sadie Holiday Step by Step

Working with Sadie is always a joy. You may remember her from a previous post when I did a more natural look on her, so it was fun to vamp it up a bit for her holiday shoot!sadie_before_after Keala Jarvis was a sweetheart and took some progressive photos for me because I think it’s helpful to see the how the makeup looks at different points of the process. sadie_holiday So I started with basic complexion, did her eyeshadows and added a pop of gold, then finished the look with brows, blush, lips, and lashes. Here’s what used:

Complexion: Temptu s/b foundation in 005Laura Mercier Secret Concealer #3, Makeup Designory shadow foundation to contour, Tarte Cheek Stain in Tipsy, Bobbi Brown Bronzer in Elvis Duran (or Natural.)

Eyes: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer, Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette, add a touch of Urban Decay Bondage on the lid and then immediately add glitter over the top. Urban Decay All Nighter on lower inner rim, Lancome Artliner in Noir on top, Lancome Hypnose mascara, Ardell Wispies lashes. Her brows are Lancome’s powder pencil in Sable applied with a damp angled brush. 

Lips: Urban Decay lipliner in 69, Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Pomegranate, and some gloss.

    Vivian! Love all your post. Thanks for sharing. My mom and I loved having you teach us how to do our makeup back in July. We have been practicing what you taught us (but I am no where close to doing it as good as you. You are SO talented). If you ever need a face for one of your post I seriously would be THRILLED to have you do my make up again. Hope you have had a great holiday season. Keep the post coming.
