ANALOGOUS COLORS // EXCUSE ME?
Click image for full story and products
Analogous colors are groups of colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel…in this case Red, undertones of Yellow, and Orange. It’s always fun to look at a color wheel to see random color schemes that you may not think would go well together, and play with them!
On Alex I used :
1 Soleil Tan De Chanel all over her face for a sheer wash of shimmer instead of a foundation
2 Then applied an orange shimmer eyeshadow from Makeup Forever all over her eye lid in a oval shape including the bottom lash line, using a rounded brush helps give the edges of the shape a softness
3 A thick coat of Nars Semi Matte Lipstick in Heat Wave ( the perfect matte orange lipstick !!) was applied with a sharp flat tipped brush to give the shape precision, and then another coat was added for even more opacity
4 Three layers of Votre Vu Mascara was applied to give a the lashes solid definition without using an eyeliner
This look was shot by Samantha West in my home studio located in SIlverlake on a lovely Saturday afternoon!
