This morning brought a delightful experience – doing the makeup for Anja Winnick, an editor at The Knot and TheKnot.com. Not only is she already pretty and nice (a natural combo that equals beauty), but she loves color and wears it well. Anja had several on-camera interviews which will be airing on TheKnot.com, and wanted a polished, perfect look.
We started with lots of prepping and priming: cleansing cloths, Embryollise, MAC Prep + Prime, MAC Fast Response eye cream. Then we moved on to makeup, starting with MAC Face and Body, topped with MUD corrector/concealers and highlight/contouring. The real treat was Makeup Forever’s Aqua Cream in Pink Beige – yummy, and a perfect accent to her bright green/hazel eyes! I added some contouring on the eyes, false lashes, brows, and MAC Fluidline in Rich Ground. Then I did a special blend for cheeks and lips (I can’t give away all of my secrets!), finished with Makeup Forever HD Powder, a few spritzes of MAC Fix+, twirled her hair in a curling iron, and off she went!
Anja, and her colleague Heather Levine, are terrific, friendly, collaborative women who I hope to work with again in the near future. Very exciting morning for me, and I will post Anja’s video soon.
