One thing I love about LA is I get to collaborate with my West Coast friends. I did key makeup for my friend Maria’s mermaid-inspired jewelry collection, and our the model was… the inimitable Traci Hines! (Google her! I’m serious!)
My favorite part about doing makeup was working with Traci herself. She is pretty, petite, and incredibly sweet. I wanted the look to be playful yet romantic with peachy skin, jewel-toned eyes and flirty lashes. Tracy asked me to keep her signature beauty mark, so we did. :)
Cosmopop + a touch of Traci’s own MAC gloss on top = WIN!
I’m very happy with way eye makeup came out, especially the blue/pink/purple gradient. I used: Troubadour, Cupcake Thief (best-seller at IMATS!), Empress, & Mischief Managed on the eyes, and Centrifuchsia on the lips.
