MAKEUP: Behind The Scenes at FILA
This past shoot I worked with models Julie “JAWS” Nelson and Lauren Berlingeri. Both incredible, smart, strong and, of course, extremely fit and stunning women.
For both Lauren and Julie I used AJ Crimson’s Foundation and applied it with a Beauty Blender. These two products together really give a stunning flawless affect. Generally on my fitness shoots, I use cream blushes. It gives a perfect sheen without being too shiny and lays beautifully on a cream foundation.
On Julie’s eyes I used MAC’s Mac EyeshadowX9 Amber times 9 and Mac EyeshadowX9 Burgundy times 9. The burgundy colors really made her blue eyes pop, but weren’t so intense that it looked too heavy for a workout. I also used Kiss EZ lashes Trio. These have become my go-to lash. They are bundles of individual lashes that comes together perfectly. Sometimes strip lashes are just too much and the strip just doesn’t work on everyone’s lash line, so, I find that these lashes are perfect. They fit beautifully between the last and the lid and look absolutely flawless.
For Lauren, I used Charlotte Tilbury’s Eyes To Mesmerise in Jean and then contoured her crease with a taupe. I lined only her top lash line – it is a fitness shoot – with the YSL Effet Faux Cils Felt-Tip liner which it such a favorite and then added the same type of lashes as Julie.
I used MAC’s powder blush in Pinch O’ Peach.
I used, only, Rosebud Salve on Julie’s lips, while for Lauren I used IT Cosmetics CC+ Lip Serum in Laugh.
So there you have it, a quick BTS of beauty on one of my FILA shoots. There will definitely be more to come, so enjoy…
