Well, Aren't You A Sexy Devil

Thanks so much for the request Megan!
I'm so glad that I got to do this look! It turned out so beautiful, I hated that I had business stuff to take care of & had to wash it off afterwards.

Edwardian Society Lady

I love doing historical looks like this. You can tone up the theatricals & stylizing of this look by doing slightly deeper colors with slightly more pronounced highlights.
Finish off this look with a beautiful rose scented perfume to keep with the era.

Titanic & My Fair Lady are great movies to watch for more stylized ideas.

Products Used:
Foundation- Revlon Colorstay or Makeup Forever Mat Velvet +
Mixing Founation (to make your foundation easier to blend)- Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse (Porcelain Ivory adds a great pink tone & creamy texture for fair to light medium skin) or Makeup Forever HD Foundation (adds a nice luminosity)
Palladio Rice Powder in Translucent
Real Techniques Blush Brush
Maybelline Expert Wear brow pencil in Blonde
Milani Bow Fix Kit in Light
High Definition Dual Brush
Ulta Professional Eye Primer
Studio Tools Medium Shadow Brush
ELF 100 Palette #41
ELF Professional Eye Shadow Brush
ELF 100 Palette #40 & #28
Studio Tools Crease Brush
ELF 100 Palette #29
ELF 100 Palette #59
ELF 100 Palette #51
ELF 100 Palette #89
ELF Small Angled Brush
Physicians Formula Eyebrightener in Natural Eyelight
Too Faced Lash Injection
Generic Lash Spoolie
NYC Cheek Glow in Cherry Blossom
Gotta B' Urban Powder Brush
Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls in Translucent Pearl
Lipsticks- Revlon Just Bitten in Crave, Maybelline Colorsensational in Bitten Berry, CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Eternal,, or Revlon Matte in Really Red (I don't suggest this one, even though it's the one that I used, I always forget that this color comes out much more orange then it looks in the tube)
Generic Lip Brush

If you find that blending in the lipcolor gave you a smudgy lip line, run a brush with a bit of concealer around the edge of your lip. This will give you a nice crisp edge.
