The secret is first of all “a really soft kohl,” Wendy instructed me. “You’ll just dot it around the lash line and smudge it in with your finger.” On Hannah she demonstrated the usage of Nars Zardoz, which she to start with carried out with a broom sooner than mixing along with her fingertip. Next, she took a “mauve-y, brown-y purple,” and smoothed it throughout the remainder of the eyelid, mixing all of it in conjunction with the kohl “so it looks quite soft. It’s more youthful—the skin has this veil of color.” Unlike a extra usual smoky eye which, she says, “can make people’s eyes look quite sunken,” the mixed tactic “keeps most of the color close to the lash line, making the pigment over the eyelid quite sheer. It’s a smoky eye, but it’s not solid.”
On Hannah’s pores and skin Wendy sculpted with the Burberry Contour Pen and Burberry Fresh Glow Nude Radiance “to pick up her skin slightly. It’s highlighting without highlighter.” She used Glossier Skin Tint as a base, however with a rather darker basis at the hollows of the cheeks for a herbal having a look contour. Then, for extra modernity, Wendy blended Glossier Cloud paint in Haze with slightly of Vaseline and “rubbed it down the cheek, the entire strategy to the jawline “fairly than at the apple and up, to offer a extra worn-in flush.” She completed with Burberry First Kiss in Sweet Plum on Hannah’s lips. No mascara. “I bleached her brows as neatly since the darkish subsequent to the white is hanging, and it is helping so the attention doesn’t glance too gothic. It’s slightly extra trendy, brisker.”
The closing step is straightforward: “The makeup will move, and it will look more and more realistic as you wear it,” Wendy says. Let it.
