Tonight I did Kristen's makeup for the Grammys. Kristen is wearing a long, black dress with a cut out design along the bustline. The dress is by Etro. I wanted to make her eyes the focus on her face. Here's what I used:
For her face, I used Mark Calm & Composed moisturizer all over. Then, I applied Mark Face Xpert liquid foundation in Buff using the foundation brush. Also, I used Mark Good Riddance in Fair/Light wherever there was any redness. I applied Mark Get Bright in Light underneath her eyes as a highlighting concealer using the concealer brush. Then, to set her foundation, I brushed on Mark Matte-nificent Powder in Nude Ivory using the powder brush. Once her face set, I brushed Mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush in Sandy to the apple of her cheeks using the blush/bronzer brush. For her eyes, I started by smudging Mark Eyemarker Pencil in Jet along the top of her lashline using the eyeliner brush. I extended the liner so that it looked like a smudged cat eye. Then I mixed I-Mark eyeshadows in Tiki and Magic and placed it on her eyelids using the eye shadow brush. I took the angled contour eye shadow brush and used it to soften the edge on her lid by blending it back and forth. Then I mixed both I-Mark shadows and smudged it along her lower lashes using the eyeliner brush. I finished the eyes with two coats of Mark Lash Splash Mascara in Black, using it on both her upper and lower lashes. For her lips, I applied Glow Baby Glow in M.Powerment Peach.

Tonight I did Kristen's makeup for her premiere of "When in Rome". Kristen was wearing a chocolate brown, full length, long sleeve dress. I wanted to keep her face fresh and bright. Here's what I used: I started with Mark Calm & Composed Moisturizer. Then I applied Mark Face Xpert in Buff using the foundation brush. I used Mark Good Riddance in Fair/Light around her nose and around her mouth. I applied Mark Get Bright in Light under her eyes and down the bridge of her nose. Then I used Mark Just Pinched in Peachy on the apples of her cheeks using the concealer brush. I set her face with Mark Matte-nificent Powder in Nude Ivory using the powder brush. On her eyes, I started with I-Mark eyeshadow in Biscotti putting it on her lid using the all over eyeshadow brush. In the crease of her eyes, I mixed I-Mark eyeshadows in Latte and Minx, using the angled contour eyeshadow brush. I rimmed her eyes with Mark Longwear Eye Pencil in Solid Gold-it's a bronzey gold color. Then I smudged Mark Eyemarker Pencil in Java along the top of her lashline and underneath her bottom lashes using the eyeliner brush. I finished her eyes with Mark Lash Splash Mascara in Black. Also, I added Mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush in Hush Baby to her cheeks, using the blush/bronzer brush-just to make them pop. For her lips, she's wearing Mark Pro Gloss in Swell.
