Pale face with Eye Lashes: The models face was first prepped and primed. I then applied Temptu Aqua Foundation in shade 101 all over the face, neck and ears to pale out the skin. After this foundation set, I applied a very light application of Temtpu SB Foundation in shade 001. By layering the two foundations, I got the coverage with the Aqua Formula and the sheen with the SB Formula. I applied a powder blush in shade Dandelion from Benefit Cosmetics to the apple of the cheeks and into the hairline. I wanted to match the brows to her hair color and I did this with the Temptu Airbrow Kit. I mixed SB colors Rich Brown and Hi-Def Red and stenciled the brows with La Dolce Vita stencil. To further elongate and shape the brows, I hand applied my brow mixture with a fine angled brow brush. I applied some feathery false lashes and lined the eyes in a black Kohl Eye Pencil. Lips were painted in a mixture of a soft matte pink lipstick and Temptu SB Foundation in shade 001.
Clean Beauty Shot: First I applied Embryolisse 24 Hour Miracle Cream to prep the face. Then I applied Temptu SB Primer with a flat foundation brush. I then airbrushed the models face with Temptu SB Foundation in shades in 004 and 003 to highlight. I added a couple drops of the SB Blush in shade “Blush” and lightly rouged the apple of the cheeks. I let the foundation and blush set then misted the face with a glycerin spray and patted lightly with a clean powder puff for an extra dewy finish.
