Makeup Monday continues! In this series I have chosen some interesting people to sit in my makeup chair and fulfilled my vision for their makeup. Here is the third beauty I had the pleasure to work with: Iines.
Makeup Monday: Iines
Iines is another one of those people I like to think of as super women. She is a professional blogger (actually, she was among the first to create a popular blog in Finland!), she works with social media and she is a toddler mom. It was so nice to meet her and talk about blogging and life. Another fun fact about Iines is that she is also very into DIY-projects and work. I have actually bought a hand-knit top from her, which I showed you in this post.
For her makeup, I had a vision of a soft smokey eye paired with fresh skin and lips. I think a dramatic eye works so well with her freckles and warm tones. Iines has big beautiful blue eyes, which I emphasized with warm browns.
I couldn’t help, but use the same *Madara City CC Cream, that I have now used on every makeup I’ve done so far. It just goes to show how great that product is and how it suits so many skin types. I mixed some bounce foundation into that though, to make the color match to Iines’ tan. I set the face lightly with my favorite powder, added a bronzer, a peachy blush and a golden highlight.
As for the soft smokey eye, I used a palette I had kind of forgotten about. It’s *Morphe’s 3205 palette, which has a nice selection of warm neutrals. The pigment is good and it’s an easy palette to work with. The nude lipstick is one of my go-to nude colors, *IsaDora Twist-Up Gloss Stick in Boho Beige.
Don’t forget to check out Iines’ blog and her Instagram, where she by the way shares some amazing travel photos.
