Faces by the Honey B: Stephanie and Layla

I had the pleasure of doing makeup for the beautiful Stephanie, who was on her way to her husband's baseball game. Stephanie has warm skin with a hint of yellow so I used Benefit's You Rebel tinted moisturizer for sheer and even coverage and used concealer around her nose, under her eyes and around the sides of her mouth. I stuck to neutrals and browns for her eyeshadow starting with MAC's Smut on her lid and going for a golden Honey Lust on her crease. I finished off with my Anastasia brow kit to fill in her natural brow line, then highlighted the brow bone with Blanc Type. I lined her top lid with MAC's fluidline in Blacktrack and since Stephanie is not used to wearing liner on her lower lashline because as the mommy of a 2 year old (and with one more on the way) running around all day can cause her liner to smudge. I opted for brushing on Urban Decay's Oil Slick with a MAC 266 angle brush. The powder is less dramatic but still defines the eye and won't smudge.

We finished the look with MAC bronzer in Golden Brown and Rock and Repbulic's Call me blush, which was stunning on her skin (this blush is universally flattering, in my opinion). To plump up her lips, I lined them with NARS lipliner in Bonero and filled in her lips with Viva Glam V lipstick and Nymphette lipgloss.

Layla is wearing a light dusting of Rock and Republic Bedroom on her cheeks (courtesy of her Auntie). No eyelash extensions were applied, those are her real (and really long) eyelashes :) !
