Cranberry Velvet


Velvet. The inspiration behind this look. It has got to be one of the most beautiful fabrics! My model here requested for me to play with cranberry, autumn like shades and this is what we came up with.

Products Used

  • MAC Strobe Cream: applied all over the face for hydration and glow. The Strobe cream contains iridescent flecks which gives the skin a luminous look.
  • YSL Touche Eclat Foundation: started by applying the foundation in the centre of the face and blending it out all over the face.
  • Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer: applied under the eyes and in the centre of the forehead.
  • MAC P+P Pen in Medium: applied under the eye and around the nose to add additional light to the skin.
  • NARS Laguna Liquid Bronzer: applied to the edges of the forehead and cheekbones for a natural tan and definition.
  • Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder in Medium: applied to the edges of the forehead and cheekbones for a sculpted look.
  • MAC New Romance Blush: applied to the apples of the cheeks. I love this blush, it gives the skin such a beautiful and youthful flush!

  • MAC P+P 24H Extended Eye Base: applied a small amount all over the eye, to hold the eye products together.
  • Inglot Pigment #86: applied on the first half of the eyelid. I used a flat synthetic brush to press the pigment because this way of applying pigment will give the best quality of pigmentation and colour.

  • Makeup Geek Steampunk Duochrome Eyeshadow: applied to the second half of the eyelid.
  • Makeup Geek Bitten Eyeshadow: applied to the outer corner of the eye to give this makeup a smokey effect. Bitten was also smudged in the lower lash line.
