This series of photographs also shows how quickly the use of iridescence and vivid color adds drama and intensity to the make-up. In this photograph, copper yellow fantasy color has been added to the eyelid.
The same copper yellow is added to the lip color in order to add depth and drama to the lips.
Golden bronze fantasy color is lightly brushed over the cheeks to produce halation.
White-pearl fantasy color is applied under the eyebrow arch. The same brush is then cleaned with a tissue and used to blend and soften the initial application.
The lip line is further accentuated with darker lip color using a very fine-edged lip brush.
The shading under the cheeks is accentuated with a wide flat brush.
The same shading accent is applied under the jaw line. Once all of the re-accentuation and re-definition has been accomplished with irridescence and shadeing, the make-up takes on a much more dramatic appeal.
