Bombshell Beauty

Bombshell_01

We had the privilege of working with some incredible artists on this shoot – not only Maggie herself, a talented and beautiful actress, but also Justin Woods, our hairstylist, and Ashlee Glazer, our makeup artist. They were kind enough to share their techniques so that you and I can get this bombshell beauty look…

How to get that “mack on me” makeup…

Ashlee took two eyeliners – MAC Teddy and MAC Coffee – and rubbed them all around the inner upper and lower water line and on the lid in a cat eye shape.

Ashlee blended the pencils together, creating a smooth, sexy shape that follows natural bone structure. Next, she used the Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage palette, brushing the dark brown on first and closest to the lash line. She buffed up with the medium brown all the way into the crease, fanning out by the brow bone.

Taking the bronze color from the same palette and using the NARS #14 brush – “it’s like a pencil smudge brush” – Ashlee rubbed underneath the eye along the lower lash line, following the shape of the eye and eventually angling upward to meet the “V” of the cats-eye.

Beauty shoot with MAKE cosmetics, We See Beauty (2)

I love models. I love the way their bone structure causes light to fall differently on their face. I love they have to learn to communicate so much through their eyes, to tell the story you are trying to tell. I love how they can take on different looks and moods with just a change of styling. I love how they are aware photographically what to do with their bodies down to their toes. A model, to me, is a human canvas where we paint our stories. These are some photographs we made for MAKE cosmetics, I just love looking at her face.

MAKE cosmetics, We See Beauty

Every time I’m out and about in the city these days I’m looking for colors of spring, anything to erase the grey memories of winter. My beautiful friend Chelsa (who was also running in the marathon in Boston that day and was receiving her medal when the bombs went off) came by the studio to be my springtime muse. A palette of pinks, something soft and pretty, a reminder of how delicate we are like the flowers that bloom.

Here’s a step by step tutorial using MAKE cosmetics to get the look!

Step 1: Sweep Santa Fe all the way over the eyelid, but not quite to the brow.

We See Beauty

photo studio beauty shoot (2)

For the past year, we have had the honor of working with an amazing new cosmetics company that just launched called MAKE. MAKE has saturation in its product like NARS, the range of color like MAC and the professional tools like MakeupProfessional, but is different from a humanitarian perspective. Every time you buy a MAKE product, you help fund the We See Beauty Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting and strengthening communities and local economy, especially for women-led small businesses.

MAKE finds beauty in encouraging self-expression through color by fostering contemporary collaborations between makeup artists and creatives worldwide. MAKE is the first for-benefit beauty brand on We See Beauty and is made in New York. When you go to their website, it feels more like an art gallery experience than a commerce site. Having worked closely with their founder to help fulfill her vision, I can tell you MAKE is about the celebration of women and however they choose to define themselves.

Here are some behind the scenes snapshots on set at Jack Studios with MAKE and our team, showing palettes of colors, stylist’s wardrobe, props, makeup artist’s sketches and major gear!
