For our second look, we wanted a little edgy but not over the top since she was wearing bridal fashions from Priscilla of Boston. I knew that the gowns would begin to look costume-y and become overshadowed if the look was too strong.
Hair stylist Erin Ferris (Tonto Salon) and I were inspired by the peacock feathers she used in her hair so we created a look inspired by them.
Here are a few things I used to get her look.
I placed a coat of L’Oreal Studio Secrets Secret Magic Perfecting Base ($13) under her eyes, but I didn’t rub it all the way in. I wanted a layer of something invisible to grab onto the dusting of turquoise shadow I dropped along her skin.
I used my fingers to dab turquoise hued MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream ($22) on her lid into her eye’e crease so there was a base of color on her lid to echo the color below.
I used a small, loose brush to gather a lot of MAKE UP FOR EVER Turquoise Shimmer 83 shadow, then I lightly tapped it over her primer-coated skin under her eyes. It’s a fun look that’s easy to do as long as you prime well and lay the head back so the color goes where you want it instead of all over her face.
I had a hard time deciding which lashes I’d use since I knew they’d be important to the look, but I knew I wanted to stay with the theme and use feathers. I ended up going with NYX EL 174 ($10), a black feather lash with white tips. I liked the way the white mirrored her gown and brought interest to her eyes. Curl and add mascara to the lashes before applying them because you can’t once they’re on.
I gave her lips a light coat of Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Lip & Tuck ($35) in French Kiss. It’s a plumping lip treatment disguised as a subtly shiny gloss with just enough color to give some pop.
I’m in love with these images, she pulled off the look really well. Part 3 (and maybe 4) of the shoot coming soon!
