                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      I created this Rita Hayworth inspired look for hannah using gold cream shadow and deep plum lips. These two shades work well together because they are part of a triadic color combination…they tend to be quite vibrant even if you use pale or unsaturated versions of your hues.

This look can be achieved with gold cream eyeshadow, deep plum lipstick and gloss.
Apply gold shadow with your ring finger patting in the center of the eye to outward crease then use a pencil brush to smudge under the eyes….it doesn't need to be perfect! Cream shadows are very forgiving so you don't have to be a pro…smudging creates a diffused effortless look.
Line the waterline with black or golden brown liner for more drama.

Plum lips look good on any complexion! Choose a vibrant shade with a blue undertone….this will make the gold shadow stand out. Apply lipstick then smudge with your finger until the color is blended well and layer with gloss. You want it to look more like a lip stain.

I prepped Hannahs skin with Radiance primer by Laura Mercier…this lightweight creamy gel is a universal pearl tint that creates a soft focus effect to minimize imperfections. I then applied concealer under her eyes, down the center of her nose and areas of redness then finished with a loose powder.
I used bronzer to sculpt out her cheeks and added a neutral blush. I love the Hi light powder by Becca in opal…Its a must have for everyone! Place hi light above blush down center of the nose, cupids bow, chin and center of forehead for a moonlit glow! You can never get enough  GLOW!
