Makeover: Sarah C

Sunday, 25 October 2009

Something a little different this week.  Meet Sarah:



Today we're replicating a makeup we designed for Sarah a couple of months ago for a fancy dress party, and my inspiration for the look was Theda Bara. As always, we start with the base:


We've used a mixture of foundations to match Sarah's skin tone, then powdered it down with a smattering of Benefit Bluffdust.  Then it was onto the eyes, and we decided to use MAC Paint in Artifact, which is a lovely burgundy shade:


I applied this in an almond shape on the eyelid, then drew out the outer edges into a pointed shape.  After that, I added lashings of MAC Feline eyeliner to make it even darker:


 

After that, of course, time for mascara:




And then lips, we needed something dark, but still flattering, so we chose Gash by Urban Decay, as it's a really good dark red.  Sarah has lovely shaped lips for the bee-stung look, so I just exaggerated her cupid's bow a little, and drew the colour slightly inside her natural lipshape. There was no need for blush with this look:



And here's how the whole thing looked when we put it together:


I love how this looks, dramatic, different, yet still wearable for a night-time special event.

Here's the before'n'after:

  1. Another super makeover... love the shade of red on those lips, she's lucky that hers are full enough to carry a dark red off so well!
