Newest Makeup Work: Old-Hollywood Glamour
The makeup was about achieving an ethereal glow to the skin, doing dramatic eyes, and keeping the look clean and polished. Amanda is an overworked young woman: She holds a day job, goes to school, yet always shows up to modeling assignments professional and upbeat. I mixed a little vitamin E oil with my favorite moisturizer, CeraVe. Then I went to work on creating a polished, glowing canvas, using a BB cream with a bronzing effect and highlighter around her eyes, tops of the cheekbones, and bridge of the nose. I contoured lightly using my Cielmiera contour stick, emphasizing her cheekbones and working around the sides of her nose. Kiss brand (my current favorite) false lashes were applied to emphasize her gorgeous, translucent green eyes.
