NUNU the model!!!
This is a beauty look that I did for a new model friend of mine Miss Nunu. I really just want to share with all of you my process. First of all we started with a model that has the most amazing skin. Perfect skin is something that money cannot buy honey. On second thought if you don’t mind spending some money you can perfect the skin that you have. So we began with a little moisture to get the skin conditioned for the makeup application. There are many moisturizers on the market and they all do different things. Use the product of your choice the one that works best for you. Once the skin is ready I start my process working with the eyes first. Beginning with the eyes first makes for easier clean up of unwanted eyeshadow from the skin. With Nunu I begin the eye by perfecting the brow. I used spiked brow pencil by MAC and a bit of a reddish brown eye shadow and a angle brush to perfect the brow. When filling in the brows you don’t want to go too dark. Dark brows draw too much attention to the brow and looks animated. Once the brows are complete you can then apply a thing layer of eye primer to the lid. In this case I used MAC eye paint in bamboom with the 252 brush. I then go back in with a really light concealer and highlight under the brow bringing it downward towards the crease. Blend Blend Blend.. Use a 224 brush to blend the base with concealer. Now you can apply the lid color with a 234 brush I used MAC Woodwinked shadow on the lid. Pack the lid color on heavy and blend it up into the crease with a 224 brush. In the crease I used MAC Browndown shadow with a 224. On the corner I used MAC Embark and Carbon with a 219 brush blended with the 224. Line the upper and lower lid with Blacktrack fluidline. With the skin I did a lot of contouring and highlighting. To highlight I went the MAC Stick Foundation in NC 35 under the eyes in the forehead and the bridge of the nose. In the cheeks and around the hairline I contoured with the stick in NW 55. I used the stick in Nunu’s skin one on the remainder of the face. BLEND BLEND BLEND with a 109 brush. Apply bronzer in Refined Deeper Bronze. Blush in Raizin and Ambering Rose, which are amazing for darker skin tones. Highlight a little more with a bronzy pigment and a fan brush. I went with a nude lip using MAC BBQ liner and a little lip conditioner. Complete the look with corner lashes, which are my favorite!!! There you have it a natural beauty look for a dark skin girl… If you have any other questions feel free… BE BEAUTIFUL!!!
