Tove's Inspiration and the How to:

For this photo we wanted to create a look which captured that contrast of a braided updo which gets messy and comes to life. As if she has been out in the woods all day, or perhaps spent the whole day in bed. For the makeup we wanted to keep it very fresh and natural but with a lot of glow. For the base I used MAC face & body and Bobbi Brown concealer. For the rosey cheeks I used MAC blend cream blush in so sweet, so easy mixed with NYX rose petal pop. I applied it on a bigger area and a bit further down than you normally would and then added a bit on the lips too. To highlight her cheeks I used living luminizer from RMS. By using the Tom Ford contour kit I created a shadow under her cheekbones. I did not want draw to much attention to the eyes so just to add some dimension I used Mac groundwork and highlighted with MAC pearl.  To finish up and create that extra sweaty shine I dabbed some Vaseline on the high points of her face.
