E! Scouted – Hallie’s Makeover
Hallie’s beauty is what the camera loves! With her fair skin, dark hair and strong eyebrows she screams strength and personality. Her face, coloring and vibe remind me of modern beauties such as Anne Hathaway or Jennifer Connelly.
The eyebrows are a big part of what makes this look special. They need to be left strong but in my opinion not overpowering. In the show it sounded like Hallie said the eyebrows were off limit but in fact I did groom them mainly to give her a little more space between the eyes. Left untouched, they made her eyes look small, so by opening them up by the bridge of the nose, the eyes look bigger.
I didn’t have to do much for Hallie’s “no-makeup” look, pictured above. Her dark eyelashes already look made up, her skin needed just a hint of blush and I put a touch of tinted lip balm on her lips. She’s the kind of girl that can make a makeup artist look good if you just know not to destroy her beauty.
How would you do that? By adding heavy makeup on the skin and loud colors like green and blue on the eyes.
The second look is more radical. I played up the contrast between her ivory skin and black hair by giving her a bright red lip. To keep the look minimal, I just emphasized the upper and lower lash line with a dark brown eyeliner pencil and some black mascara. What makes this look extra chic is that hair stylist Charles slicked her hair back which gave her a sophisticated allure.
If you have this coloring combination (very light skin and very dark to black hair) you’re a lucky person. Since you have ivory skin, watch out for foundations that are too yellow. It would take your radiance away and make you look sallow.
Stay away from garish eye colors and warm-toned lipsticks. Cool pinks and cool tones are more flattering for your skin tone. If you want to wear red, stay with a true red or a raspberry rather than a brick.
