Challenge 19 - Rachel McAdams at the Hollywood Film Festival Awards Gala 2009
I was Challenged to do this look (Rachel McAdams at the Hollywood Film Festival Gala in 2009). The challenge was by
I wanted to do this Challenge on a blonde, so I asked Nic to be my model.
Nic is wearing Smashbox, Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light followed by a mixture of Smashbox, High Definition Healthy FX Foundation in L3 and I used the Make Up For Ever, HD Foundation in 155 Medium Beige to create a perfect foundation colour for Nicole. I applied this with the Make Up For Ever Finishing Brush 20N. With the same brush I tapped some Smashbox, Photo Op Under Eye Brightener under her eyes and on the top of her nose. Nic doesn't need more concealer so the lucky girl's almost done. I just added some Make Up For Ever, Super Matte Loose Powder in 012 Translucent Neutral on her face but not under her eyes. I added some bright pink blush on the apples of her cheeks for an innocent flush.
I mixed the White, the Red and the Blue from the Make Up For Ever, Flash Colour Case to create a light purple colour base that I applied on her eyelids with a Sephora - Professionnel All Over Shadow Brush - Small #22. Remember when using cream colour bases that a thin layer works as a base and a thick layer creases like mad. Over this I used GOSH, Effect Powder in Butterfly on her lid and to add a warm crease I blended GOSH, Effect Powder in Rose Gold in the crease blending it up. Under her eyebrows I used some Sephora - Colorful Mat Mono Eyeshadow - Mat No. 06 (matte white) Item # 936310 with my "new" Illamasqua - Blending Brush 1 adding a slight highlight here. Even though Rachel isn't wearing any eyeliner, on Nic's eyes I felt like adding this and I also felt like adding some lashes. I got the gold H&M lashes to place on the eyeline I drew ( Stila - Smudge Pot in Jet Black and my Smashbox - Arced Liner Brush no. 21 I drew the line on the inside of her eyes a little thicker, to make her eyes look closer together). The lashglue that comes with the lashes is HORRIBLE! The lashes came off in 5 minutes . Nic is wearing Rimmel Sexy Curves in Intense Black 003 again.
