valentines makeup from day to night
Recently, we had the chance to collaborate with Kiara, fashion blogger extraordinaire of Tobruck Ave, and what fun it was. Jackie got to work creating 2 Valentines Day worthy makeup looks that would transition her from day to night.
Here's what she did: To get this look, start with clean and fresh skin! I recommend an exfoliating mask the night before and a super hydrating yet lightweight moisturizer like Linacare ( total sidebar, a local Vancouver skincare company).
For Kiara's skin, I lightly brushed on Ellis Faas Skin Veil foundation, and buffed it in with a clean brush for that "looks like real skin" finish. To take her complexion to the next level all it took was rms beauty living luminizer on the high points of the face (ie: cheekbones, bridge of nose, cupids bow) and rms beauty lip2cheek in demure right on the apples of the cheeks.
Her soft smokey eye was created with two simple steps - Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes in E106 blended on her lid and lightly along the lower lashline and healthy dose of Artists's Touch mascara to both the upper and lower lashes.
Last but not least Blossom Lady from Ilia Beauty on the lips for super hydration, and a little pop of colour!
To take her look up a notch for a romantic evening date - or night out on the town with the ladies - I added just 3 key products.
Vincent Longo's ultra long wearing lipstick in "london" - that perfect true red; Vincent Longo eyeshadow trio in "Timeless" for a dramatic smokey look; and Femme Fatale lashes to take it all to the next level! For a list all products used head over here.
Till next time, Kisses. Jackie & Heather
