Photo Shoot Series: No Makeup Look

As a makeup artist, I sometimes get lost in all the wonderful colors and textures in my kit. It's evident in most of the work included in my portfolio - the models either have a bold lip or a sparkly or dramatic eye.

A photographer/stylist friend of mine brought forth the idea of creating a "no makeup" look because a common friend (also a photographer) needed it for his portfolio. I jumped at the opportunity and the photo above was the final product.

I just wanted to quickly share with you the products I used to achieve this look. Here goes:

  • NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream
  • Clinique All About Eyes Rich
  • Make Up For Ever High Definition Primer

  • NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation - 01 Nude
  • Cinema Secrets Concealer - Kit #2
  • Shu Uemura Face Powder Matte Colorless
  • Make Up For Ever Shine On Powder
  • Smashbox Contour Palette
  • NARS Blush - Outlaw (just the tiniest bit)

  • Viseart Natural Eyeshadow Palette (as eyeshadow & brow color)
  • TonyMoly Cats Wink Mascara
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil - Corrupt
  • Make Up For Ever Lip Liner Concealer (yes, on the eye)

  • Edward Bess Ultra Slick Lipstick - Night Romance
  • Edward Bess Deep Shine Lip Gloss - Sweet Dream

  • Benefit Bathina
  • Smashbox Contour Palette

I haven't used my Edward Bess lipsticks in a while but decided to whip these out and bring them to the shoot, without a plan. These were so easy to apply and photographed beautifully that I used them two weeks later during a bridal trial.

Anyway, I hope you found this post enjoyable or at the very least helpful. I plan on including more of my work and how I created the look, apart from the usual review.

Til next time ;)
