Hi. I'm Terri Apanasewicz and today, on Remodeled, I'm gong to be recreating a beauty look I did on supermodel Cindy Crawford. This look is from when Cindy was on the red carpet for the launch of Michigan Avenue Magazine.
When you're doing a mineral powdered foundation and you started with your concealer, you want to set the concealer with a translucent powder.
Moving to your mineral powdered foundation, I always use two colors 'cause I think it just gives a lot more dimension to the skin. And a good trick, use a tissue on your contour and dab the brush. This way, it'll distribute the powder more evenly in the brush, so when you go to put it on your face, you won't have something,
you have to worry about smoothing it out. That's my lighter color. And like I said, I always like to take a little bit darker color just to add a little bit more dimension around the outside of the face.
Moving on to cheeks, I'm gonna keep the cheek on a lighter tone 'cause we're gonna go with the strong eye. And if you want a little extra drama, especially in the summertime, you can add a little extra bronzer. When you're using a bronzer, I still always use a cheek color. Again, I like more dimension in my face.
Moving on to eyebrows, I'm gonna use a pencil. But if you choose to use a powder at home, that's fine. Just whatever your choice of product for brow is make sure you brush and groom the brow first so that you see the shape of the brow and where you really need to enhance it. A brow needs to be enhanced where it's weak, not all over. And then, after you finish applying your color, brush through it again. I'm sticking to the upper side of her eyebrow. This is gonna give her more of an arch effect.
We're gonna do a smoky eye but I'm gonna keep it more in violet tones. Okay. So I'm gonna work with a, a purple-based color. It's got a little shine and sparkle into it. I'm gonna show you a trick to make it and your eyelid look a little bit bigger. After you put it on from the inner corner to the outer corner, from the lash line to the crease, dip your brush in the same color, go right above that crease. With the same color, just extend your lid. And when you get to the upper line, you want to soften it with either a clean brush or a q-tip. So you can just dust your brush off or choose a new one and then go over the top line. So that gives the illusion that she's got a bigger lid and it's more open.
I'm gonna take a dark charcoal pencil and I'm gonna do the inside of her bottom lash. So what this is gonna do is add a little bit more drama without adding too much makeup. And then, what we're gonna do is take our same deep violet color with a smaller brush, tapping off the excess and going underneath her bottom lash, extending the color that we just put on the inside with the powder on the outside. This will add intensity and it'll also help keep the pencil from running.
So I'm gonna take a little highlighter and I'm gonna show you how to add a little under the brow for just a little extra puff. One thing you want to do with a product like this, it's a loose powder, it's got a lot of shine to it, is you don't want to just take a bunch and put it on. You really just want to move it around your brush and then apply what's left. And this will also give an extra definition and lift to the brow.
Before we add mascara, curling our lashes is one more way that we can make our eyelashes look longer because we're lifting them there, it's gonna be more to show once we get our mascara on. We want to start at the base as close as you can to your lid without pinching yourself. And once you get it settled, squeeze down and then slightly open the curler and slide it away from the base to the middle or end of the lash, depending on how long your lashes are, and then do another squeeze. What this will do is it'll give you more gradual curl to your lash. Perfect. I'm gonna do the bottom, mascara first. So with pretty much a clean mascara wand, just a little bit of color left, you're just gonna go along the bottom. Put our wand back in, load it up and go to our top lash starting at the base and rolling it up.
Let's finish it off with a lip pencil. I'm just going to be using Chelsea's natural lip shape. If you do want to enhance the size of your lip, I recommend using a color of a lip pencil that's close to your natural lip color and just, just going on just the top upper side of the lip line. Don't try to overextend it too much. And then we're gonna finish it off with a little gloss.
Here is Cindy's red carpet look. We did a clean foundation with mineral powder. We did a nice, even glowy cheek. I groomed her brows. We used a dark violet eye shadow on the lid and then had her look forward and extended it up, used a little bit of sheen under the brow and then finish it off with a nude lip liner with a beige gloss. And that's the look. What do you think?
My favorite look yet. (LAUGH)
It is. (LAUGH)
