Glad Lash is spreading the Valentine's Day 'Lash Love' with this natural beauty! Deborah was such a treat to paint. To get this easy to duplicate sexy but oh so natural look for the Valentine's Day, remember....muted or matte shades are work best.
As I wanted this sultry look to be a bit dewy, to prep the skin I used a delicate moisturizer and added a liquid golden illuminizer to her cheekbones, the bridge of her nose and on her Cupid's bow (the curve in the middle of her upper lip).
Eyes...Deborah's eye shape is naturally exquisite so to play up her natural cat eye shape, I used matte colors on her eyes for a classic makeup application. Pink on her eyelids and browns in her crease. I also used a brown eyeliner on the upper inside water line to elongate her top lash line and used a highlight pencil on the lower water line to accent the whites of her eyes. To extend her cat eye shape, I used Maybelline's Graphic black eyeliner marker. This made the look more dramatic and seductive. A cat eye and strip lashes are always suggestive. Perfect for the 50 shades of whatever weekend you have ahead...wink wink!!
Lashes...I used Glad Lash's Accent strip lashes on the outer corners and added a few black individuals or clusters onto the middle of her lash line to give a bit more volume. I also used Glad Lash's black strip lash adhesive for the strips. The effect is ooooh la la! A natural but sexy way to achieve that 'come hither' look! Of course I curled her lashes first, applied black mascara and also added mascara after the lash application.
Foundation...I used HD Makeup Forever liquid foundation, a Charlotte Tilbury concealer liquid stick under her eyes, contoured her cheeks, nose and forehead and lightly powdered her T-Zone area. I wanted her to be slightly dewy so didn't want to over do it with setting her foundation.
Cheeks...Added a matte mauve color to her apples and more bronzer to add to the contour, then blended.
Lips...I mixed two Too Faced Melted colors for her muted lips.
Eyebrows...Groomed and filled in a bit.
A romantic, sophisticated and simply gorgeous 'Get the Look' to celebrate this special occasion. Glad Lash wishes you all a heartfelt Valentine's day with Lashes full of Love.
