Lacey Schwimmer inspired

Hi ladies,

When I was browsing online for dancer’s pictures, I came by this Lacey Schwimmer picture which I loved instantly. I used this picture for inspiration to create a similar look on my own eyes.

I used the Smashbox, Photo Finish Primer Light tester again to start the look. This really is a product that grows on you… As a foundation I used the Too Faced, Magic Wand Illuminating foundation in no. 2 New York Light, the brush at the end of this foundation was something I loved at first, but honestly, now it’s starting to annoy me because I want to apply my foundation with my own brush and cleaning it means I wash away a lot of foundation that’s stuck at the bottom of the brush. Still I want to use as little brushes as possible today because I want to prove to myself that I don’t need every brush on the planet.

Eye base
The concealer I’m using under my eyes is Smashbox, Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer I used no. 2 . Over this I added a little Smashbox, Photo Op Under Eye Brightener, remember to patt this into the skin. Under my eyebrows I still use Benefit, High Brow and on my eyelids I use Urban Decay, Eyeshadow Primer Potion for a base. Because her eyes seem to radiate light I added Yves Saint Laurent, Touche Eclat in no. 2 all around my eyes. I always set my face and under my eyes with Make Up For Ever – HD Powder now using my “new” Dior, Backstage Makeup Powder Brush.

My addiction to brushes is huge, but there was a time when I didn’t have a brush for everything and I wanted to prove to myself that I don’t need more brushes. So I only used my Smashbox, no. 26 Shadow brush and the Sephora, no 12 eyeliner brush I own.
As a base colour I used Smashbox, Eyeshadow in Vanilla and on my eyelids I use the pink from a mini Smashbox trio Martini sent to me once, the trio is called Headshot (and is now only available in the Smashbox, Award Winners Kit). Over the pink I applied the bronze colour from the Smashbox Eye Shadow Quad in Supernatural. This colour is only available in the Smashbox, Glambox Volume 2 – The Supernaturals. As a liner I used the Stila, Smudge Pot in Black again. You can cheat the line by placing small dots as a guideline before drawing the actual line.

For the lashes I used a Shu Uemura lashcurler I have and as a mascara I used Diorshow, Iconic in 090 Black.

To complete the look, I straightened my hair.
