'How To' by Marlien Echelpoels

For this story the key element is glowy and healthy skin. As the main accents of the makeup were going to be colourful and bold details I wanted the skin to be clean and luminous, a little glossy even. Fresh blush and colours that pop.

Prep

I prepared the model's skin, by cleansing it with a facial toner from Likami (a belgian, organic and natural skincare brand). Hydrated with Likami Facial Intensive Hydrating Cream with fingertips to moisturize the skin. Added a few drops of Likami Facial Essential Serum mixed with Cover FX Illuminating Primer for extra dimension. As a foundation I used a thin layer of Make Up Designory Cream Foundation and concealed where necessary with a mix of YSL Touche Éclat and Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer. Eyebrows were shaped lightly with Make Up Forever Aqua Brow. A fresh blush i created with Make up Designory cream blush. I slightly bronzed and highlighted the whole face using Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit - Volume 3.

Look 1

On the first look the detail was made on the eyes. I used MAC Paint Pot in Constructivist, blended it lightly on the eye lids and under the eyes. Mascara by Make Up Designory. Brows brushed up by Make up Designory Brow gel. Blushed up the lips by using a mix of Likami Lip Balm and Pink lipstick by Make Up Designory ‘Mudslide’. I made the hair wet with oil and water.

Look 2

The second look features the same technique on the lips, only on the eyes I added a blended eyeliner with eye shadow, Taupe By Make Up Designory.

Look 3

Look three features a mix of green and blue eye shadow colors on the eyelids from NYX and Make up Designory. On the cheeks is still blush colours of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit pallet volume 3, on lips extra lip balm from Likami skincare. The hair is now in a messy low ponytail with naked ears

Look 4

On the fourth look I created a thick line under the eye with MAC Loose pigments in Rich Purple mixed with water. The lashes are now more clumpy. I created two braids on top of the model’s head and put the rest of the hair in a sleek ponytail.

Look 5

Look five was also with focus on the eyes. I created a painting on the eyelids with different lipsticks. Bordeaux, pink and red tones, all from MAC and MUD. On top i used MAC Clear Lip Glass. On the lips I put extra highlighter from Hourglass Ambient lighting powder.
