I have had way too much fun creating makeup looks on my model Ally. She’s already beautiful, so my work is easy. That said, I created this navy smoky eye for a night out. This isn’t your great-grandma’s robin-egg-blue shadow of the 50s, this is a grown-up, sultry look that when paired with a sleek outfit for a night on the town, is eye-catching, not overwhelming.
My lovely model Ally does not usually wear much makeup— a tinted moisturizer & blush is all. Her skin is dry & sensitive, and told me she has not been able to find a makeup routine that works. She wanted me to teach her how to look like the flawless, dewy-skinned version of herself. She also bravely allowed me to take a before and after shot in natural light and with a flash, to show how the makeup looks at different times of day. My aim was to give her a polished look that’s pretty and feminine, that does not distract from her natural beauty.
