WHAT IS THE BEAUTY THEME FOR THE SHOW:

This had to be a gang of pop-ghetto girls with a grunge twist.Tough girls who love glitter and don’t care what you think about it.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT THIS LOOK:

It was a make-up artist’s dream! I absolutely love the black graphic liner that appears on every girl to enforce their “gang” vibe. I then love that each girl had their own twist with individually designed brown and lip colours!

WHAT ARE THE #HEROPRODUCTS USED:

MAC Black Track Fluid Line that we used with a MAX #266 Angle Brush to create the clean graphic shape of the eyeliner with perfect corners. MAC PRO glitters in an array of fun colours! We adhered them to foil rectangles with eyelash adhesive and then applied them to the face. Face and Body Foundation was used to even out skin tone lightly with a fresh finish that still remained youthful.

ANY TIPS OR TRICKS:

Anytime you want to use glitter in your eye make-up, apply that part first! So easy to clean up any mess with a make-up wipe and then apply the foundation around it. IF you need to remove any glitter afterwards (as we did) sticky tape will pick it up. When trying to get the shape of your graphic eyeliner right, always map it out lightly with a product first with your eyes open – then you will be able to make sure the shapes are symmetrical before you go full speed and coat with black.
