Don’t you just love winter makeup??
I love that makeup becomes a power play when the skies get dull. It’s time to winterize your look and put away your tan-toned foundations. Step (far!) away from bronzer – it looks orange-y and out of place in the winter, and instead fire up some dramatic, exciting, winter eyes.
Here is my new beauty editorial for Luca Magazine. I love my Luca editorials because I am not just the hired makeup artist, I am also the magazine’s Beauty Director. I think up the shoot, cast my models, hire my crew, creative direct, produce and direct the shoots, as well as being the makeup artist. It’s a lot of hats to wear, but each of them is fabulous!
Along with some heavy duty lower lashes this look was created using Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner in Ody(sea) 62, which is a vibrant teal, paired with the gold shadow in the Glambition Eye Shadow Palette and a little black in the crease. To offset the huge lower lashes and pump up the volume on the upper lash line I used Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara.
I love red eye shadow! This look was super easy. I used Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner in Fine Wine. This is a gel crayon that is maneuverable and can do some multipurpose tricks. I applied the crayon to the eyelid and then buffed it out with a fluffy brush. Once I had the color and softness I wanted I went back in and created a giant winged liner, making it big and bold. I finished the look with giant false lower lashes and layers of Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara on the top lashes.

To achieve this look I used products from Marc Jacobs Beauty. On the eyes I used Twinkle Pop Stick in Frannie 408, an iridescent, snowy shade that I then layered with the white shadow in the Marc Jacobs Smartorial 760 Eye shadow palette.
Rolled, puffed out gold, this eye was created using Marc Jacobs Beauty Twinkle Pop in 3 Shakes 404, which I then layered with the gold shadow in the Marc Jacobs Beauty Glambition Eye shadow Palette. A little smudged black liner and a coat of mascara rounded the look out.
