I could not wait to try a Jamie Genevieve look! She is an amazing make up artist and her vlogs are addictive to watch! New to recreating her looks I chose one of her easier ones to start with and thankfully it didn’t require false lashes. At the time of this post I haven’t made it to get new eyelashes after the KISS lash fiasco in the last two posts. So what are we waiting for…LETS GO!!!…
My skin is still pretty dry today so after cleansing my skin I applied NIP+FAB plumping serum all over then Dr. brandt no more baggage around my eyes. Once those were absorbed I applied L’Oréal cell renewal to my complete face. To prime I chose MAC strobe cream. With all that complete and absorbed it was time to create an even canvas. First step was to apply the Urban Decay primer potion to my lids next came the NARS foundation and finally the Tarte shape tape in the usual spots.
Contour/highlight and blush were three easy steps. First Contour using Benefits Hoola bronzer. This shade has really worked best for contouring this week. I slacked on the self tanning sessions. SHAME ON ME! I did blend it in really well from my cheek hollows up to the cheek bones. Next on the top of my cheeks I brushed on the Makeup Revolution strobe highlighter. I also applied it along my forehead, above my brows and along the top of my nose. Using the Benefit gold rush blush I blended it in with the contour and highlighter along the apples of my cheeks and blending upwards towards my temples.
On my eyes I started with Tarte Amazonian clay blush in feisty to apply in the crease and brush outward. For my lids I used the Lorac propalette champagne and blended upwards to the Tarte blush shade. The clay blush is a matte tone giving depth to the shimmery champagne and allowing it to pop!
To add more depth I turned to the generic Walmart palette for the floral rain. I lightly dabbed a bit of floral rain on the outer corner of my lid. It is very pigmented so a light touch was needed. With that buffed in I went back to the Lorac propalette for the shade garnet. Again this color is very pigmented but so beautiful. I applied the garnet beginning on the outer corner to blend with the floral rain and brushed it along the crease and only slightly touching the lids.
To add more glitz to my eyes I used my finger and tapped on some Makeup Revolution strobe highlighter on the middle to the inner corner of my lid and a little tap on the corner to give that glowy punch! The final step for shadow was using the Lorac propalette shade sable from the outer corner buffed into the floral rain and garnet. Then used along the water line rather heavy to give a deep smoky look.
No falsies today! Only mascara. To make sure you get that full look without fake lashes be sure to curl your lashes first. Then I applied a few coats of the Maybelline pumped up mascara to the upper lashes and lightly brushed my lower lashes, making sure there are no clumps. Since today is an everyday look I didn’t want very bold brows. Using the Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow and an angled brush I followed the natural lines on my brows and lightly filled them in. Easy-Peasy!
For my lips I lightly lined with my absolute favorite liner , Rimmel 1000 kisses in wild clover. Then I applied the NYX lingerie matte liquid lipstick completely over my lips and with my fingers I blended it in to the liner. And with that the look is complete!
Jamie Genevieve is very inspiring. Her spirit and her talent are what influenced me to start my blogs. If I’m feeling at a loss of motivation I watch a video or 2 of Jamie and they often include her fiancée Jack and their beautiful pup Drogba. Their enthusiasm is infectious and motivational. I hope you enjoyed this look as much as I enjoyed recreating it. Please check out her YouTube channel, you will not be disappointed! Until tomorrow wonderful people remember to have fun and be creative!
