NYC Rose Gold Makeover for Amanda: BH Cosmetics & Tarte!
After living in New York City for nearly two years finally FINALLY my amazing friend Amanda and former LA roommate has joined me! You read about her adventuring with me in my Benefit Primp My Brows article. She is starting a new chapter of her life in the big city and fitting in like she was born for it. Basically she is the most beautiful human on earth without makeup, hello, look at those features. Obviously I had to do her makeup. Usually she goes for big lashes (as if she could avoid them) nude lip and nude eye. She’s a little timid with color so I wanted to show her easy ways to use vibrant colors without looking overdone. This year is all about taking chances, being a boss and making changes for Amanda-Let’s start with the makeup, that’s an easy one. I settled on a rose gold lip and eye, because it uses a bump of color but doesn’t overshadow her bright shining natural fabulousness
Her beautiful Snow White princess skin is still adapting to the NYC weather so to smooth her out I primed with Puremedy Argan Oil Seabuckthorn Face Cream for Normal to Dry Skin, Porefessional by Benefit, e.l.f. Studio Mineral Infused Face Primer, Tone Adjusting Green and Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
Contour: Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
Blush: Nars Orgasm
Look at those cheekbones! Amanda’s skin scares me a bit because she is so fair and has such amazing features that you can play up her features and then accidentally go from glam to drag queen in SECONDS. Ahhh! But really, with the help of blending, blending, blending I got the perfect creamy contour for her. Of course my secret was the beauty blender!
Primer color from Revlon Photoready Primer Plus Shadow, Bohemian
Mercury + Asteroid + Saturn from the BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Baked Eyeshadow Palette
Tarte Smoldereyes Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner Rose Gold for the crease
Top Liner: smolderEYES skinny eyeliner in jade

How fierce and beautiful is she? I’m dying. Her top is more than a little perfect, the SHADE. She looks totally ready for her first summer in NYC!
