Lauren came to me so excited to be engaged. Smiling and glowing with a beautiful new diamond ring on her finger. I was happy to do her makeup for her because she was so sweet! She wanted something that defined her eyes but still looked fairly natural. She naturally has dark full lashes and gorgeous full eyebrows. She didn't need much help in the eyebrow department but to fill them in slightly I used dark brown shadow from the CHANEL Dunes quad. She has the most amazing bone structure and was so naturally pretty that we didn't need to do much contouring. For her blush I used CHANEL Jous Contrast in Rose Petal and kept her lips natural with Rouge Coco Shine in the color Boy. For her eye makeup I rimmed them with a black khol Pencil and smoked it out just a little with a dark brown eyeshadow.
I finished off the eyes with a touch of a shimmery champagne color on the inner corners of the eyes and CHANEL Le Volume Mascara. The foundation I used on her is my FAVORITE which is CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua. It's a light water based makeup that looks soft and natural and photographs beautifully. I set her foundation with a translucent loose powder just down the center of the face to prevent any oiliness from shining through, as I knew it was going to be an outdoor shoot. Over all I think Lauren looks soft and natural with slightly more defined eyes. She was beautiful to start with so that made my job pretty easy! I've had the pleasure of working with Lauren on a couple more shoots since this one and can't wait to share the pictures!
