As the weather gets colder and the leaves turn from green to orange, more of us are retiring our beloved matte foundations and lip stains for the season and searching for more hydrating options to keep our skin looking flawless. I gave Madeline, 18, a comfortable dewy look using five cold-weather makeup bag staples.
First, I used the almighty Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer in Sx01. In case you’re wondering, it lives up to its reputation! To get this look, I applied a dab of product using the Kevyn Aucoin concealer brush for imperfections and applied a thicker layer as a highlighter on the cheekbones, between the nose and eyes, the bridge of the nose, and the chin.
Next, I applied Becca’s Lowlight Sculpting Perfector using a thick, angled brush. I used a technique I like to call V-sculpting. If you look at Madeline’s profile picture you can see how her contour has a v-shape to it. I like this technique because a contour is more masculine than a blush, but more romantic than a hard, straight contour.
To enhance the look, I applied a small amount of Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara to the top and bottom lashes. Than, I applied a small amount of Chanel’s Illusion D’Ombre Velvet Long Wear Luminous Matte eyeshadow in 98 Melody. It’s a very natural pink, which compliments most skin tones. To complete the look, I dabbed a generous amount of Bite Beauty’s Agave Lip Mask in the clear shade simply using my finger. Try a messy application for plumper-looking lips!
