Makeup Bag Monday; Jen D

Today’s MBM comes from the owner of Your Wedding by Jen.

Jen has a great assortment here and I love that she lets herself play and have fun with her makeup. She even mixes up her own foundation recipe out of MAC strobe lotion (a luminizer)MAC foundation, and a tinted moisturizer… this gives her a glow and a fairly sheer coverage. She is also using a primer underneath and sets it all with a powder.
She has the fabulous Urban Decay eye shadow primer.
She has been using light purples and turquoise. I recommend trying some of the coppery shades from this kit to pop her green eyes. I recommend she play with a fun cream shadow to experiment with the intensity it can give; a smudge pot can be used on the enteire lid, or just as a liner. Burgundies also can be very striking as well. I also love a shimmery pewter; predominantly gunmetal with an undertone of green.
She favors liquid liners, which I love; she has a black and a purple. She leans toward lining her inner bottom rim with her black pencil. She may want to mix that up and bit and try lightening up that waterline instead to make her eyes look larger-a white or flesh tone on that inner rim gives a bright eyed look for a nice change of pace.
I would love to see her add in a blush; L’ancome “Pret a Plum” is a great shade for her and is really silky and easy to blend.
I also added a luminizing powder to highlight her cheekbones and give her a little warmth.
Thanks Jen for sharing your stash with us; have fun with that amazing palette!!
