Last week I was a guest artist at BUFF Makeup Beauty Evening in Hession Hairdressing in Clontarf. I created two look on the night. One was a super simple look with very subtle makeup and a strong red lip and the other was a more dramatic look, perfect for the party season.
This look is the subltle look, I used BUFF’s HD foundation for this look, I really wanted the skin to be matte and flawless. I applied the foundation with my fingers and used a small syntechic brush to apply it as a concealer, that is one of the best things about this foundation, it is bulidable. On Fiona’s eyes I used two of BUFF’s perfectly nude eyeshadows Urban and Carbon. I used Carbon on the lash line top and bottom to add a little defination, then I used Urban on the whole lid to add warmth. After I had added lashings of mascara I added a touch of clear lipgloss to the whole lid to create a glossy lid. For the lips I used BUFF’s Russian lipstick. This is the perfect blue-red lipstick and it gave this really subtile look the perfect amount of glamour.
For the second look I used a mixture of Sheer Glow in Movie Star and Flawless Finish Liquid foundation. This gave the skin the most wonderful glow. I used one of the Loose Powder Pots to set the foundation and I applied a little more on the T-Zone to make sure that Alison did not look too glossy! For the dramatic eyes I first curled the lashes and applied a black eye liner to the inner rim of the eye, top and bottom. I ten used a gel lined on the top outter lash line and blended it in so it looked super sexy. I then used Rebel eyeshadow and blended it on top of the gel liner and blended up towards the brow bone. On the inner corner of the eye I used Clubbing eyeshadow to really add a hint of glamour. I applied about three ayers of mascara. For the red lips I used a mixture of Play Me from BUFF’s Xtreme Lipstick range and a clear gloss. When I had finished the look I realised that I wanted the contours of the face to be more defined so I used the smallest amount of Urban eyeshadow on a large slanted brush under Alison’s cheekbones to really bring out her amazing bone structure.
