Make Up For Ever @ Dolores Cortes

Make Up For Ever Alliance artist, Lottie, served as the key make up artist for the Dolores Cortés swim show on Friday, July 16th. Lottie created a beautiful safari-chic make up look inspired by bohemian references of the 50’s Parisian woman, combined with acid and exotic colors from Bells Beach in Australia. The end result was a palette of shimmering greens and golds.

Complexion & Cheeks: The skin was glowing and fresh faced. Lottie first applied Make Up For Ever Sculpting Blush #22 to lightly highlight the cheeks.

Eyes: The eyes were the focal point of the look. Lottie first applied Make Up For Ever Diamond Shadow #302 in teal to the lid, and then applied Make Up For Ever Diamond Shadow #310 in a shimmering emerald green starting one quarter of the way in from the outer corner of the eye to the outer eye lid and then into the crease and lower brow bone. Next Lottie applied Make Up For EverAqua Cream #11 in gold to the inner corner of the eye lid for a metallic pop. The eyes were lined with Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes #0L in black and the lashes were coated with Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Lash.

Lips: Depending on each model’s preference for a matte or glossy nude lip, Lottie applied either Make Up For Ever Lipstick #502 or Make Up For Ever Glossy Full Couleur #10 to complete the look.

To celebrate, Make Up For Ever and Temptalia are giving away:

  • Make Up For Ever Diamond Shadow #310
  • Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream #11
  • Make Up For Ever Glossy Full Couleur #10
