“I started out prepping her face with Lina Hanson Global Face Serum. This serum gives your skin an amazing glow and it makes foundation easier to blend. I applied Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation in OC 2 using my finger tips, and then I applied Jane Iredale Active Light undereye concealer underneath her eyes.”

“For her eyes, I started applying Josie Maran Cosmetics eyeshadow in Magic to her eyelids and blended the shadow up to her crease. Then I smudged the same shadow in the lower lash line. Next, I dipped a wet thin brush in black eyeshadow and lined the eye as close to the upper lash line as possible, and then I used a black eye pencil Cargo Cosmetics Eyeliner in black and lined the inside rim of her eyes. Then I curled her lashes and applied several coats of Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay Mascara to both her upper and lower lashes, and added a few individual lashes to the outer corners of her eye.”

“For her cheekbones and inside the corner of the eye I applied a liquid illuminator which I made myself specifically for Morena. This accentuate her cheekbones and makes the skin look glowy and fresh. For her cheeks, I used Vapour Organic Beauty Aura Multi-Use in Torch and applied it to the apples of her cheeks using my fingertips.”

“For her lips, I blended a couple different lipstick shades from Gabriel Cosmetics- Zuzu Luxe Lipstick (Gluten Free) to get the right shade. I mixed the shades, Beso Beso and Vino de Amor. I finished the look by sweeping some Jane iredale Pure Matte Finish Powder over her face to make the makeup stay longer.”
