Laced Up


There was no special occasion, but I played around with  my makeup, particularly with my new Sedona Lace 88 Warm Palette.  It was a beautiful sunny day, and the sunlight coming in from my window was promising for perfect portraits.  Besides the beautiful ambient lighting, the 88 Warm palette makes it so simple to do a look because every color compliments another within the collection.

I mixed 4 shades, a light melon gold for the lower lid, a deep mauve and an eggplant purple for the crease, and black for the outer V as well as blended out to give a smokey look.



For the blackest liner to line your false lashes, use a liquid liner. It's much easier than you would imagine.  Using a felt tip liner is best. I prefer L'oreal Lineur Intense felt tip liner in black.





One final photo, taken using flash.


What I used:

CoverGirl TruBlend mousse foundation - #460 Classic Tan

  6. Love the intensity of this look! I gotta try that L'Oreal eyeliner, it looks dark and pigmented. My trusty Revlon colourstay hasn't been living up to its name the last couple of times I've used it for some reason. Maybe its time to switch...hmmm.

  16. Thank you all for your comments and opinions!

    Anonymous - I shoot my photos on Manual using my Nikon D90. I adjust the ISO, shutter speed, and aperature according to the lighting I am in, or how I want the photo to look.The camera shoots photos in a larger file and I save them to be 1000px for wide photos and 550px for long photos so it doesnt take up too much memory on my computer.

  17. I do not use a tripod, I hold the camera in my hand, or I have Jerrid take the photos of me. No matter what, lighting is key. It allows enough light into the lens to make a crisp and clear photo.
