Right after the Teen Choice Awards, Lucy and I flew to New York City to celebrate with mark. cosmetics, who were having their 10th birthday party at the Trump Soho. There were 100+ people in attendance to help celebrate! We wanted a really festive party look so we went with red lips and black liquid liner with a kitten flick, the perfect recipe for party makeup. It looked adorable with her messy ponytail and cute frock.....
I went through all of my usual steps.... prepping the skin, evening out the skin tone with foundation and concealer, grooming the brows etc. I set the skin with a dusting of loose powder and applied a peachy blush to the apples of Lucy's cheeks. For her eyes, I wanted there to be definition, but I also wanted to keep the focus on her red lips so I used a very very light dusting of a matte brown from the lash line up to the crease, making sure that it was more concentrated at the lash line. Next I used a shimmery taupe shadow from the lash line up just past the crease, blending it into the skin so there's no line of demarkation. I lined the inside of Lucy's eyes with a black long wearing liner, top and bottom, and then used a liquid liner along the top lashes. I used mascara on the top and bottom, but only a light coat on the lower lashes as I wanted to accentuate the flirty cat eye.
For the lips I used a red lip crayon. I wanted it to be a bit more on the matte side so I took a fluffy eyeshadow brush and gently patted some translucent loose powder on the lips. I always feel more confident sending a client down the red carpet with a matte bold color on the lips.... that last thing you want is a red lip mishap, which is much more likely to happen with a more emollient formula. Plus I just think matte looks young and cool.
