INSPIRATIONS

This bold winged eyeliner created on supermodel Joan Smalls by Sir John (Beyonce's Makeup Artist) is striking and the burgundy colour smoked underneath the bottom lashes adds dimension and softness. The rest of the makeup is in nude tones so that the focus is all on the eyes.

Makeup Artist Hung Vanngo has created a lovely metallic, bronze smokey eye with a soft, natural lip and cheek on Julianne Moore for a red carpet event. Her hairstylist Marcus Francis has pulled back the hair to show off her fabulous bone structure. A really beautiful and classic hair and makeup.
