Happy 4th of July!

My shoots with Mel are always so much fun. You’ll be seeing a lot of her in upcoming posts. I like to refer to her as ‘the face of all my success”, because she is always modeling for me (my Instagram page is proof of that LOL). This past Monday, we had a blast shooting at A.C.’s Icees in Coconut Grove. It was about 95 degrees out, so she didn’t mind sippin’ on an Icee while she modeled! The makeup palette I chose for this look is very natural and does not take much effort or time to achieve.

 Eyes: MAC Eyeshadown in ‘Cork’ (personal favorite!) & Ardell Natural ‘Wispies’. Lips: Covergirl’s ‘Honeyed’ lipstick (personal favorite!). Contour & Highlight: Too Faced Matte bronzers in ‘Chocolate Soleil’ & ‘Milk Chocolate Soleil’ & Benefit’s ‘Watts Up’ above the cheeks and below the cheekbones.

Hair: Using my CHI Flat Iron, I created a soft, waved look. I’ll be posting a tutorial on this style very soon!

Styling: Crop Top & Skirt- LF, Flannel Shirt- Abercrombie, Sunglasses- Nordstrom

TIP: To enhance the size of your eyes, avoid applying liner inside the waterline. Apply a white or nude liner and dust a dark shadow underneath the bottom lash line to create depth!

Hope everyone has a blessed weekend. Stay Safe!
