Happy Friday fabu folks! I caught Premios Juventud last night and couldn’t get over how gorgeous Alejandra Espinoza looked—- she went for a sensual look with this very sexy dress. She definitely took the “plunge” with that neckline and showed off those fit legs with the side slits. When you’re making such a statement with your outfit, it’s always best if your makeup is understated. I love the softness of her beauty look, which is perfect for summer. I got the scoop from her makeup artist Franz Munoz about the inspiration behind this look and the products he used to create it. It was all about achieving a natural, yet polished looks so he opted from warm colors, including plum liner, coral cheeks for a flushed look and soft rosy lips. Here’s the step by step:
STEP 1: Create a perfect canvas using L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector Pore Vanisher ($24.99) as a skin primer to give a nice dewy, radiant complexion
STEP 2: Gently dab the L’Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup in Golden Beige($10.95) to contour. Blend in with the L’Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup in Caramel Beige ($10.95) to create a sun-kissed caramel glow. No powder needed to keep the look fresh and dewy.
STEP 3: For the eyes, apply the darkest shade from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Absolute Taupe ($9.99) over your entire eyelid and the medium-colored one in the crease. Use the lightest shade from L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Perpetual Nude ($9.99) along your brow bone. *Secret tip: Franz added a bit of Urban Decay Heavy Metal Loose Glitter in Goldmine ($12) to make the makeup more llamativo
STEP 4: To highlight the eyes, first add a winged line above the upper lash line with a fun summer green shade from L’Oréal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in True Teal ($8.99). Beneath the lower lash line use the L’Oreal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in Pure Purple ($8.99) as it’s a perfect color for daytime that plays well with tan to darker skin tones.
STEP 5: Apply two coats of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara in Black ($7.99) to the upper lashes
STEP 4: On the apple of your cheeks, lightly dab the blush from Urban Decay’sNAKED FLUSHED in Native ($30) for a natural flush and highlight the cheek bones and nose with its built-in highlighter.
STEP 5: Create a polished glossy lip using L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipcolour in Rose Melody ($9.99), one of my favorite colors from the line!
