“Think gorgeous and elegant, yet still modern,” Says her makeup artist, Heather Currie. “Julie has amazing bone structure and looks stunning with a smokey eye. When I saw her dress, I was reminded of a John Singer Sargent painting. I wanted to create a metallic eye that was in the same tone as her dress, which was a taupe-y gray with a hint of silver.”
Here’s how Heather created Julie’s look:
complexion: “Julie has glowing skin; I only wanted to enhance her flawless complexion.”
Prepped her skin with tarte’s clean slate natural primer
Applied tarte’s ReCreate™ anti-aging foundation with Wrinkle Rewind™ technology with SPF 15 in cool bisque #04
Applied tarte’s dark circle defense natural under eye corrector in light-to-medium
Dabbed tarte’s new smooth operator™ illuminating serum on cheekbones
cheeks: “Keeping her look soft, I used a light peach with a touch of flush on her cheeks.”
Swirl of tarte’s NEW Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in blissful on the apple of her cheeks with a touch of the tarte’s new Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in flush
eyes: “We really wanted Julie’s look to focus on her gorgeous eyes. I created a metallic smokey eye based on her textured, taupe-y gray gown. I love layering shadows and using my fingers to smudge and blend the colors.”
Prepped eyes with tarte’s smooth operator™ Amazonian clay eyebase
Used a combination of shadows from tarte’s NEW neutralEYES eye shadow palette and tarte’s femme naturale eye shadow palette, as well as tarte’s emphaseyes™ aqua-gel eyeliner in charcoal and brown
I love to layer eyeshadow with liner; I first used the darker brown shadows and smoked them at the line.
I then applied the shimmery gray-silver on her lids (her dress had a hint of silver)
I used the medium brown on the outer corner and upwards at the crease.
I then re-lined the outer areas of her eyes.
