I love this look of Virginia Mayo. It’s all perfect. Love the hair, lipstick, and the tweed suit. I wish I could look this fabulous all of the time. It’s a bold lip that isn’t too bold. I think it is all very professional and beautiful. It also works for many complexions. Here’s what I did to recreate this look:
FACE: To even out complexion, I applied Shiseido Stick Foundation in o20 directly on my face. I blended with my Elizabeth Arden Foundation Brush. Under the eyes, I applied e.l.f. All Over Cover Stick in Apricot Beige. I blended with my Bobbi Brown Concealer Brush. With my mark Powder Brush, I set foundation with Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Transparent. I applied L’Oreal True Match Blush in Innocent Flush, a light matte peach, with my Revlon Blush Brush to the apples of my cheeks while smiling.
EYES: Virginia’s brows are perfection! These are brows that motivate me. I filled in my brows with Lancôme Le Crayon Poudre Brow Pencil in Natural Blonde, after brushing them in place with a spoolie. For the eye makeup, I’m using NYX Trio Eyeshadow in TS03 or Nude/Taupe/Dark Brown. With a fluffy, large shadow brush I applied Nude, a light matte beige from lash line to brows. In the crease with a slanted crease brush, I blended a mix of Dark Brown, a neutral matte brown, and Taupe, a medium matte taupe. With the sponge tip applicator included, I lined the bottom lash line with Taupe. I closely lined the top lash line with a matte gray eyeliner pencil, NARS Eyliner Pencil in London. I curled lashes and applied a coat of Lancôme Définicils in Deep Black. I then applied Ardell Duralashes.
LIPS: I lined my natural lip line with NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Natural. Directly from the tube, I applied one of my favorite “everyday” lipsticks and recent obsession, Clinique Different Lipstick in Spiced Apple, a neutral rusty cinnamon red. It is the perfect lipstick for this Virginia look.
This look makes me want to wear Chanel Cuir de Russie. Ahh, Cuir de Russie…
This week has been very exhausting for me. Husband’s truck broke, Frink had to have an unexpected surgery, and I had too many things to do at work that I should of said “no” to but didn’t. I feel like I could sleep all weekend. And then when I wake up, I’ll spend hours trying to keep Frink’s Elizabethan collar on. What about you? Any weekend plans?
