KEEP IT BARE
Start with a clean, bare face.
Apply foundation a slight shade lighter than the model’s skin tone for areas that want to be highlighted and darker around areas that need to be shadowed i.e. under the cheekbones, sides of the face, under the jaw line. This is very soft contour without using contrasting highlights and shadow cream makeup.
Olive tan and golden spice were the most versatile color for a variety of skin tones.
DEFINED BROW & DARK EYES
Fill in the eyebrows with a shade of brown that matches your own eyebrows. Then apply a smokey eye effect.
Begin to pattern the face at the top middle section of your face.
Concentrate on making big swirls, making some lines thicker and thinner. Be careful to wait until the drawings are dry as you work your way down because I have, on many occasions, been frustrated by accidental smudging of my palm on her forehead.
I used this fine liquid eyeliner to draw the lines.
EXTEND PATTERN DRAWINGS
Keep continuing the swirls down the side of her neck and over one shoulder until you get the desired effect.
That’s all! This is the final result:
