Editor’s Note: This is a look done for Carnival, which is why it is so fun and out there!

Eyes | I used cream concealer (NW40) with a dusting of Medium dark powder as the base.  I applied Parrot over it (using 239 brush) and blended it up into the crease ( with 217 brush). I used LA Splash pigment in french vanilla mixed with a light gold eyeshadow to highlight the brow.  I used a matte brown shadow to fill in her brows.  Red Cherry brand lashes in #28.  Clinique creamliner in True Black to finish.

Face | I mixed together chanel and MAC to create a custom foundation color and applied it sparingly with the 187 brush.  Then lightly dusted on MAC medium dark loose powder. I’m a real fan of ‘skin’ showing through makeup if possible.  I used chanel bronzer in sahara to contour and Elizabeth Arden Topaz blush on the apples of her cheeks.

Lips | A lightly pigmented nude gloss (sacha cosmetics gloss in Skin) completed the look.

Kris tells us… “I like to mix foundations a ton especially since I deal with a lot of tanned skin being in the caribbean and most people’s faces especially with brown skin tends to be a couple different colors and to bring it all to one shade I need to work with a couple different shades in different places to there are no ashy tones or overly dark spots. ”
