Formal makeup Inspiration

Formal_Makeup_8I collaborated with a photographer to organise a photo shoot with this young, beautiful lady. We all met online and we both wanted to work together to get some great makeup shots for our portfolios. A real model that has talent is hard to find.

We shot in a park in Thirroul, NSW and I did the makeup at my studio. We were wanting to achieve a “Formal makeup” look with the formal dress and shoes. I will post a close of the makeup below.

There really is no such a thing as a “Formal makeup” look. You can do whatever you wish for your makeup. Think about what lip colours will suit the dress? What skin tone do you have? Eye colour? There is no right or wrong and you will want to look your best. Work with your features and try to enhance them. A purple dress doesn’t necessarily mean purple lips or eyes. Keep it simple.

I did use Arbonne makeup for the base, such as the foundation, powder and the compact bronzer (my fav) I used Napoleon Perdis loose dust eye shadows. The base of the eyes were a lilac/soft pink tone. I did put on some luscious lashes to make the eyes pop. A simple light pink lip lacquer on the lips to give some shine. It all came together really well. Check out a close up picture below.

The shoot was perfect and the photos can only speak for themselves.

Happy Formals. 😉
