Runway looks are a little out of my norm, so it's even more of an excuse to give it a go and have some fun!
Getting out of my comfort zone is an excellent opportunity to flex underused muscles! I hope you like it!
After I completed my foundation and brows:
♥ Nyx Jumpo Pencil in Pacific to stencil out lid shape.
♥ Velocity shadow from my Sugarpill Heartbreaker Palette applied to lid :-)
♥ Then I added some mascara, delicate lashes (Ardell 120's), and black liquid eyeliner.
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk to waterline, and then dusted on Sugarpill Tako shadow to set it.
♥ Then added a tiny circle under my iris in Velocity. Voila!
The rest of the look just called for contouring of the cheekbones, and barely if any lip product. I just used E.L.F lip stain in Nude Nectar.
I wanted super sleek hair to match the runway look as best as I could. Living in Arizona in the middle of monsoon season, that is absolutely impossible!! My frizz cannot be tamed! However, I was recently sent the most amazing hair straightener from SFRBeauty.com, I couldn't wait to use it for this!
SFRbeauty.com is an online beauty company based out of San Francisco, California. They offer a wide range of beauty products ranging from skincare, cosmetics, body and haircare to customers worldwide. They have an extensive site that is very user friendly :-)
Check out this straightener!
This particular model is the Cortex Platinum Black series. It features tourmaline, ceramic, ionic plates, adjustable heat, on/off switch, and the outer texture is a powdery soft feel so it glides easily through your hair without getting caught. I've used this to create curls, waves, and flips- and it's effortless. The results are amazing. This is my new favorite styling tool.
Thank you again for visiting my blog :-) This week's look is a bit outside of the box for me, but I love how it turned out. Hope you like it, too. Don't be afraid to take risks with your makeup. Sometimes we can create amazing things when we least expect it!
