Look: Honey Loooooove!

By looking at reviews and swatches from the Naked Honey collection, I had decided that I only wanted two lipglasses and two eyeshadows. I went to my favorite counter (the one I freelanced for), and my MUA James convinced me that I was very wrong! That Africanimal scent is really mesmerizing!  I still passed on the peach colored e/s, but when the F&F sale came around I caved.

This is the look that James did on me was nothing short of A-MAZ-ING! I’m not kidding, and it takes a lot to impress me with my own makeup! And you know, I’ve gotten my makeup done numerous times by different makeup artists. Not since highschool (with the exception of my wedding) have I really been impressed with a makeup job, until James! Wow is he talented! My skin glowed like you wouldn’t believe. I couldn’t pass a mirror without staring into it…wow. The eyes were sharp! And the lips…gosh I love coral lips! So you know what I did?! I called my husband, and convinced him to pick me up and we went to the Melting Pot for a really nice dinner date with a bottle of good wine and incredible food! I felt like a princess :-)

Now I’m really inspired…I have to try to recreate this look on my own and make it look as good!!

Here are some new things I learned:

  • To get the sharp line on the waterline: he put down Smolder Kohl, patted Carbon on top of it, then another layer of Smolder. It was wicked sharp!
  • Line the lips after putting on the lipstick, then apply gloss. The line won’t look harsh that way
  • Do the eyes first, then the rest of the face…that’ll take some serious re-learning for me if I do that…
  • Put the dark colors on the eye first, then blend the inner lighter shade into the darker shade (actually I already do this most of the time, so that’s good)
  • Layer the blush/highlighter/bronzer and do more than just your cheeks: nose, jaw, above brows
  • Be generous with the lustre drops in your foundation if you really want to glow! :-)
  • The 187 brush makes for flawless foundation

    These colors fit you well. The warm colors bring out the green in your eyes. Very pretty.

    This is pretty, the only thing I don’t like is the eyebrow color. I like the darker color you normally use better.

    I love the way your skin looks! What foundation and which Lustredrops did he use?

    I’m with Rachael on the eyebrow color!

    I’m pretty sure he used the liquid mineral makeup foundation and the darker lustredrops…Bronze Golden or something like that, but it’s the darker one. :-) Ok, I’m going back to the darker brows then hehe!
