Our fabulous beauty editor, Annelis, is back again with a Natalie Wood inspired photo shoot and makeup tutorial!. Also, thanks to the great Courtney Fries. Your photography is amazing!
I recently had the opportunity to be the makeup artist for an on-location shoot by the AMAZING photographer Courtney Fries of Colorado. Courtney had chosen to shoot in Historic Ybor City to showcase its alleys, brick streets and the stunning Don Vicente Historic Inn. My wonderful friend Carly agreed to be the model for the shoot and I could not have chosen a better beauty for this! I wanted to give Carly a timeless makeup look with a subtle eye and classic red lip. My vision for Carly’s makeup look was to channel the timeless and effortless beauty of Natalie Wood in the 1960s. This is a look that anyone can do. Just follow the step-by-step instructions below.
To achieve Carly’s look:
1) Begin with an undereye concealer and blend gently with your ring finger. Follow with a liquid foundation (use a foundation brush to ensure that it’s blended evenly). Lightly dust loose powder to set.
2) Apply a light beige powder eye shadow all over the lid, and blend a shimmery peach color into the crease.
3) Line the top lid with a deep brown liner all the way across to the inner corner of the eye. (Rather than lining the bottom with eyeliner, I wanted a softer look so I went for a powder shadow applied with an angled brush for the lower lid).
4) Apply 2 coats of mascara wiggling the brush slowly through lashes.
5) For a glow, apply bronzer with a large brush to cheeks, forehead, and neck. It is essential to blend the bronzer so that it looks natural!
6) For the cheeks, use a coral shade of powder blush applied to the apple of the cheeks with a blush brush (blend well towards the ear).
7) The final step of the look is the ever-so-lovely red lipstick. Use a lip brush for this step rather than applying it straight from the tube, you’ll get a more precise application. I decided to go sans gloss because I LOVE the matte look.
Most importantly, have fun with it!
