For our first shoot which was an outdoor shoot in our assistant Rosannas pool, we took on new boundries in a full waterproof look.  We started Ally off with the basics, I used "Get a Tint" tinted moisurizer by Mark. That gave her some nice hydration and just a sheer wash of neutral color (For more info, check out my Mark. boutique ). Following that, one of my favorites were brought out! Make Up For Ever Face and Body foundation in Honey Beige #34. If you have never used this foundation before, make it a point that you do! It's an extremely light weight gel formulation that's waterproof (and sweatproof  on those humid days). The formula also photographs wonderful :) A sheer application of MUFE's "HD Microfinish Blush" in "First Kiss" was added and Ally's complexion was complete.
Our next task were those eyes! Having never done a water shoot before I had to tackle a dramatic eye without it running in the least bit. As always, they started with Urban Decay's Primer Potion. As for our first sweep of color on the lids, I had used Ben Nye's powder eye shadow in Azalea mixed with Nurturing Force's "Seal the Deal". I was very impressed how this held up, hence the "Seal the Deal" being one of the products I can no longet live without!! Her definition was done again with more MUFE aqua cream shadows in the shade Anthracite. The cream blended beautifully. Finished off with a basic shimmery highlighter and of course, Stila's smudge Pot in Black and woolah! We had a look that came out exactly as planned.

Lastly, Ally's lips. We just threw on some gloss for a simple sheen. I still feel you could never go wrong with Tarte's double ended glosses!.
