Makeup inspired by love

Photography by Joel Benjamin

Love is in the air and we want that dewy and flushed with love look. 

Dani Wagener from dwBeauty in Fort Point –  offers some tricks of the trade to get that effortlessly fresh look. 

On all of the girls, I did fresh looks that are easy for anyone to accomplish…For their skin, I mixed various shades of highlight with ELLIS FAAS Foundation, applied with a sponge, lightly blended into the skin for a smooth, but still dewy look.

On Abby
I gave her an “easy” smokey eye…. A sweep of pewter/charcoal shadow on top of steel cream shadow into the top & bottom lash line with a wet brush, soft nude lip, pink cheek.

BOBBI BROWN Eyeshadow in Stone
NARS Miss Liberty
NARS Lip Chelsea Girls

On Allie
I focused on a beautiful sheer red lip, clean bright skin. Sweep of champagne shadow on the lid, black liner into top lash line, few coats of mascara.
The result is a fresh look that can be achieved in less than 10 minutes.

On Naomi

I gave her a little more drama, with a bronze smokey eye. A rich bronze shade was blended into the lash line, a lighter gold worked into the crease and softly blended to brow bone. Black cream liner was used to “double line” the eyes…and then blended with a bronze cream for a smudged look.
A few individual lashes added for volume, and a light sweep of mascara.
A bright peach blush was used on the apple of the cheek, and a honey colored bronzer added for contour.  Lastly, a soft peach lipgloss.
