As you know, I usually tend to stay as natural and uncomplicated as possible. It’s easy to maintain especially if you are a working mother. But, as all women do, I do have a wilder, sexier side that I let out to play every once in a while…
Smokey eyes are a great way to unify both of my sides: the eyes represent my strong and sensual side, teasing with shadows and dark colours whereas my lips and cheeks stay clean, pure and understated. After years of modelling I was a bit sick of the typical black smoky-eyes look that clients seem to love. Layers of layers of eye shadow, fake lashes and eyeliner that took a half hour to scrub off. So over time I created my own look that is light and inviting and not as if I tripped and fell into my makeup case. Using dark brown tones creates a softer touch without losing intensity. Some dabs of bronze highlight the unique features of your eyes with a bit of shine.
This look was done by a good friend of mine, who also works at MAC cosmetics, and you can tell she knows her colours. She does my make up for events and shootings, and I love how she translates my ideas so wonderfully onto my face. To be honest, I am quite in love with this look and can’t wait to apply it one evening, hopefully soon.
Before you do your make up, make sure your face is clean, dry and not oily to prevent blotching. Also: by doing the eye makeup first and then applying your foundation, you can prevent eye-shadow-crumbling’s to ruin your look.
