Valentine's Day Looks - Part 2
Brooke is wearing makeup by L'Oreal: True Match liquid foundation in Nude Beige, Hip Studio Secrets professional shadow in Electrified 510, and a new product, Bare Naturale Gentle Lip Conditioner in Soft Spice. Thank you to L'Oreal for generously donating their new items to make this Valentine's look.
The True Match foundations are consistently rated very highly by beauty magazines and makeup artists, both for color shade range and for finish quality. If you are looking for a more affordable foundation option than the department store brands, this is a good product to look into. The Hip Studio Secrets line is also highly rated for its strong pigmentation. If you want a lot of bang for your buck, this product delivers: you will not need to keep reapplying to get a rich color effect.
Brooke is also wearing NARS powder blush in Sin. For a little extra illumination, I added a drop of Smashbox illuminator to her foundation. To prep her skin, I used Make Up For Ever primer, and for her eyes I used Urban Decay eye shadow primer.
Please see www.facebook.com/makeupbyELM for more images. I originally wanted to go very dramatic for the second look, but because Brooke's natural coloring is so fair and she's so young (20), that makeup look was overpowering on her.
