THE LOOK EVERY GIRL WANTS // IN STEPS

I like to call this look the “Modern 60’s Cool Girl”…She is edgy but still sweet with her cat eye tipped bronze lids, subtle peach lip, and strong brow. Her skin is dewy and flawless and her confidence is alluring and playful.
This is the look I get asked the most often to recreate weather it be from friends wanting to try something new on themselves, an magazine editor wanting the model to look sexy but not overly done up, or a celebrity who wants their eyes to stand out but still look like themselves…We all want to look effortlessly awesome, and this is a look that can help you achieve it. Alex Noiret, one of my most favorite muses and Samantha West, one of my most favorite photographers, helped me create this look.
On Alex I used :
Weleda Rose lotion for a gentle and nourishing softness
Chanel liquid bronzer Soleil Tan was then applied for sheer highlight to the entire face, instead of foundation
Chanel eyebrow pencil to taylor the edges of the brow to give a full appearance, then I combed them into the desired shape
( I love to give a heavy brow with a cat eye sometimes, as I feel the tapered brow shape mimics the tapered edge of the cat eye, playing nicely together for a bold yet natural look )
Votre Vu eyeliner in Chocolate was then used over the entire lid, creating a red brown creamy base for the eyeshadow, as well as allowing you to get precision in the shape you want to create
(With a round edged brush you then can buff out the edges slightly as to make it a more defused and softer shape )
I then applied Pixie bronze shadow over the entire shape that we just created with the pencil and in the center of the lid I added a lighter golden hue to give a more ombre gradation to the colors
A thick layer of Mascara was applied to the top lash and a lighter amount was applied to the bottom lashes, allowing the bottom lash line to be a bit less heavy and more open
Dior Addict lipstick was applied to the lips as the final step
Samantha then took Alex outside for some final shots in the beautiful California Sun!
