Makeup Celebrity Style :: Smokey Eyes Gone Wildly Bright

Posted Mar 14 2009 12:00am
It's not often I get the opportunity to work with such a sweet and down to earth celebrity, but I did have the pleasure of working with Playboy Playmate of the Year 2005, Miss Georgia 2001, and wife of of Joe Don Rooney of the hit country trio Rascal Flatts, Tiffany Fallon Rooney.
It was effortless working with someone so naturally gorgeous who didn't require much makeup to accentuate her wonderful assets (lips, eyes, nose, YES - she was perfect). AND, Tiffany was willing to let me try some different approaches to her makeup look and work it at that same time!! Thanks Tiffany - you are truly a beautiful star.

During our session I created two separate looks for TF and this more edgy and colorful look ended up being one of my favorites. I love stepping outside of the makeup box and creating a look that is slightly unexpected, but at the same time keeping it very pretty.

So if you're wondering how to get this fun and flirty look, here's how to try it out - It's more exciting than your typical "brown/black smokey eye" that's been done before:

1. Eyes. Too Faced Shadow Insurance ($17), all over your eyelid to secure your shadow colors and for longevity. Use an ivory shadow all over the eyebed, then use Bobbi Browns Brights Eye Palette ($70) for the next coloring.

From the top lash line to the crease I used the color "Blue Denim," then in the crease Bobbi Brown's "Slate" shadow was used (not from the Bright's Palette) to tone down the brightness of the blue a bit. I lined the top of the lash line with Revlon's ColorStay Eyeliner in navy blue ($8), and then shadowed over it in the same "Blue Denim" color to brighten it up and set the liner.

On the bottom lash line, I lined the inner eyelid with the same navy liner, and then underneath the lash line I smudged the color "Mulberry" from the brights palette. I loved the contrast of the upper blue lid to the bottom purple lid...very unexpected. Then add tons of black mascara to upper and lower lashes!

2. Cheeks. Use Nars cheek color in Orgasm ($25) my absolute favorite peachy pink color of all time - Mata Hari is another good color too if you want more pink;-)

3. Skin. L'Oreal Paris True Match Foundation plus JK Jemma Kidd's Mannequin Skin ($24). I love mixing in Mannequin Skin with my fave foundation for a beautiful mixture to apply to the skin- it makes it glow!

4. Lips. I wanted to keep the emphasis on her eyes, so for the lips I kept it simple with a highly pigmented gloss by Victoria's Secret, Beauty Rush Lip gloss in "Let's Jam" ($7). No lip liner necessary if you've got great lips.

I will be back with more details on how to create the other glamorous looks like the ones I performed on Tiffany and my edgy reverse smokey eye look on my choreographer friend, Jamie.
