3 Fall looks on Blair of Atlantic Pacific
This Fall reach for colors that are unexpected! We are breaking many rules this year, which is so exciting. Blair is wearing 3 vibrant pieces:a yellow sweater, pink pants, and a blue top...I did not want to overwhelm this look with too much color for her makeup. If you love color in your wardrobe try avoiding too much color in the cheeks. I used Soft Lights -Prism, by Smashbox, a great pressed powder highlighter to give the skin a dewy appearance. The focus for her makeup is a Glitter Girl favorite-bright fuchsia lips!
Let's recreate the 70's but keep it up to date and classy! While color up to the brows is trendy for the runways, I kept Blair's shadow from the eyelid to the eye crease to make it more realway. I was inspired by YSL's Ombre Solo, Lasting Radiance Eyeshadow, in 005 Slate Green. Start with a creamy base, press/pat on the color, and softly blend it out on the creases with a clean pony tail brush. False Lashes are my go to accessory for Fall. It adds texture to your look, just like adding a fur vest to your outfit adds a contrast of materials. Try the Bianca's by Faux Lash. The combination of the black and brown hairs complete the idea of depth and volume!
"A woman should never look like she is trying too hard...always appear effortless, even if its not" -George Sharp, creative director at St. John. The rocker look is not for everyone, so don't feel the pressure to do something so forced, that you are not comfortable-you should always feel comfortable. A winged liner paired with a deep lip is mysterious...I LOVE Media by MAC...it's pigment was intense and completes a leather pant and sequin hat outfit! *Love this look but not sure it's you? Try Black Honey Almost Lipstick by Clinic for just a stain.
