I’ve decided to incorporate some guest faces into the Daily Face routine. Here is my first, my best friend from age 14, lover of pizza, founder of the hit website The Information Super Highway, Amandalyn Ferri. I started our makeup session by asking Amanda what she wanted to look like, to which she responded, “A clown,” to which I responded, “No.” Then she suggested “The lesbian from Nightmare On Elm Street Three,” which I also vetoed. Finally after I told her to “Get serious,” she said, “Ok, I want to look BAD.” Which I interpreted as “good.” And so it began…
First I evened Amanda’s skin tone with a light tinted moisturizer and concealer under her eyes. Amanda has nice skin so it didn’t take take much product to even everything out.
Next I applied MAC Blacktrack to the inner rims of her eyelids. I also applied liner onto the lid smudging into the lash line.
Then I applied black shadow from the lash line to the crease. The shadow is most concentrated by the lash line and blends upward so the shadow in the crease is light and diffused. I also lightly blended the black shadow into the lower lash line.
Next I blended the dark brown shade in the NARS Cordura Duo into and slightly above the crease of the eye. I don’t like bringing shadow all the way to the brow, but I did blend the shadow over the eye socket bone so it’s visible when Amanda has her eyes open. I also blended this color around the eye and below the lash line.
The goal for the shadow is to have the darkest colors closest to the eyeball and then for the color to get lighter as it moves away from the eye.
I applied a small about of blush as a contour underneath her cheekbones and filled in her brows with an Ebony drawing pencil. Ebony drawing pencils create a good shadow underneath the brows and work on almost any hair color.
I finished the look with mascara.
I think Amanda looks pretty bad, as in super good.
