Starlets On the Move -"Arreyon Collins"

In this photo Arreyon's wearing a heavy lined eye, chocolate lip gloss and a beautiful bronzer. The look resembles a "Sexy Secretary." Conservative yet Alluring. To get her look, these are the the steps and products I used:

1.)Foundation Cream Base; take a dime size amount, warm on the back of hand and apply with fingers, foundation brush or latex sponge. Be sure to apply the product evenly.2.) Powder; set base with with translucent powder. Complete the finish with a Bronzer.3.) Eyes; brown matte, rust & cream shimmer shadows. Using a shadow brush, color the entire lid to the crease with the rust tone. With an angle brush, place brown in the crease and highlight the brow bone with cream tone.4.) Liner black cream; using a liner brush, starting from inner corner draw a thin line and gradually make it thicker as you come to the corner and wing it out slightly. With an angel brush, set the liner with a matte black shadow.5.) Brows; brown & black powder shadows. Using a brow brush, fill and shape the brows. Use the brown as the base color and slight bit of black for drama.Tip: Eyebrow sealer really does the trick.6.) Theatrical eyelashes; use lashes of your choice by placing glue on lash allow to dry for a few seconds (blow on 'em a bit) apply as close to the base line as possible. Use liner to mask any gaps.7.) Mascara; coat top lashes 2-3 times and once on the bottom.Tip: Blend natural lashes and fakes by using your baby finger to blend the lashes together and coat.8.) Blush; pull in cheeks and place blush from along side the jaw bone to the temple.9.) Lips; using the wand from the gloss tube or a lip brush paint a nice amount of gloss for "super sexy" lips.
