'How To' by Ben Mayer

The skin got prepared with the Chanel Hydra Beauty Cream and the Blue Lagoon Lip Balm. I used the Chanel CC Cream to make the skin perfect where needed. Contour  and highlight done with Creme Colour Bases from MAC in Dusk, Pearl and Luna. For some extra glow, I used Lucas’ Papaw Ointment on cheekbones and on the bridge of the nose. To bring the eyebrows in shape I use MAC Clear Brow Gel.

Photo 1 the two shades of beige by MAC The Dame Pro Eye Palette is all I used on Urdur’s eyes. The natural juicy colour on her lips is Hug Me by MAC

Photo 2 I applied Kryolan’s Polyester Glimmer in Copper with my fingers on the eyelid. To prevent glitter fallout, I use scotch tape. I finished off this look with a rosey nude lipstick by MAC in the shade HoneyLove.

Photo 3 Illamasqua Liquid Metal Palette gives her a metallic silvery shine on her eyelids. On her lips I applied Horst Kirchberger’s Dark Ultra Gloss in 25

Photo 4 A bit of clear gloss and Cream Colour Base in Luna for the eyes. The dark red on her lips is Rouge Audace from Chanel with a hint of Illamasqua Liquid Metal Palette’s Silver in the middle of her upper lip.

Photo 5 I used MAC Cream Eyeshadow in Ochre and Dijonnaise to make her blue eyes pop! and I used Fleshpot lipstick by MAC on her lips
