Here’s a beautiful fashion story for July’s Jezebel Magazine’s cover issue of 90210’s AnnaLynne McCord that I worked on a couple of months ago and have been DYING for it to come out!! Because the clothes were so luxurious and chic, I created a makeup look that was polished and sophisticated.
Here’s exactly what I did:
I applied Giorgio Armani Designer Foundation in #7 then powdered all over with Giorgio Armani Loose Powder in #1.
I contoured under her cheekbones for extra drama with Mark Cosmetics Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder in Pro Glow, then dusted directly on her cheekbones with Mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush in Sandy. Make sure to sweep both all the way up to your temples, into your hairline.
I used a combination of the lighter gold shades in Dior’s Sunset Cafe 5-Colour Palette along her entire eyelid, blending up and into the crease.
I used Dolce & Gabbana Crayon Intense Eyeliner in Stromboli along the entire lower lash line, drawing the line thicker than expected, almost using it more as a shadow for drama instead of a liner for definition.
Followed by two coats of DiorShow Iconic Mascara in Nior, then I applied individual lashes along the upper lash line.
I wanted AnnaLynne’s gorgeous mouth to be highlighted, but not compete with her eyes and the dresses, so I applied Dior Addict High Shine Lipstick in Champagne Blush, an elegantly sheer golden pink.
Here are some more shots from the story, shot by John Russo in his studio in Los Angeles. I am obsessed with the long white dress by Issa London!
