How did Patricia create this look?

For photos 1,2 and 3 I wanted to focus the strength of the makeup on the outlined graphic, simple and precise for what I used Benefit Push-up Liner. Its bevelled applicator makes the stroke much easier.

 For the polka dot blush I have used Graftobian propaint "Wild Violet" and "Shocking Pink" colors and I have applied them with a natural feather that I bought from a fine art shop. For the final lip finish I have used MAC Lip Gloss and have redesigned the eyebrows with the Graftobian HD Brow Correctors. The manicure is done with Pro Color Graftobian Nail Polish.

 In photos 4 and 5 I used lightening powder after foundation to give the skin a velvety and transparent appearance.I have made intense color stains with Mac acrylic colors freehand brushing, the eye-liner is Graftobian and the lip gloss is NARS Larger Than Life, color "Paris Fillies"
