Tennis Lessons

If you saw yesterday’s post you would know about my new current obsession with Hourglass Cosmetics.  I’ve acquired a few of their products over the past few weeks and I have been dying to use them on any face that gets near me.  Luckily, I had a beauty named Dallas yesterday that got Hourglass’d!  I was able to collaborate with the great Carlos Nunez behind the lens, accompanied by the amazing Tiffany Horn for wardrobe.  It was a dream team!  We wanted to throw Dallas on the tennis courts and see what she could do… so the look had to be fresh, glowing, and a bit sporty.  The perfect storm consisted of dewey skin, an aqua cateye, coral cheeks, and a burnt orange bitten lip.  How did I achieve the look?

 I started by priming her skin with No 28 Priming Serum from Hourglass.  It is lightweight, super moisturizing, and gives the skin a flawless base to add complexion on top.  Next up- my favorite skin product- Illusion Tinted Moisturizer.  It gave a perfect luminous finish, evened out her complexion, and protected her skin with an SPF of 15.  I finished her glow on the face with a little Aquaphor to really give it an almost wet looking appearance.  Her cheeks were a combination of the Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim from Hourglass, and the Convertible Cheek in Lillium from Stila Cosmetics.  Her eyeliner was a waterproof Diorshow Liner in Turquoise,  The lip color is unknown- just a color in one of my pallets!  I think Dallas passed the tennis lesson, with flying colors!  Xx

    Nikki, I wanted to ask you if you could tell us more about how to use Aquaphor on the face. Because after I read your post about highlighters I bought the product right away when it came out here in Germany last month. I love it but I only use it as a moisturizer because of it’s rich texture. Now I saw that you used it for this (really beautiful) makeup. Would you recommend using the product as a highlighter for an everyday look? If yes, how do you use it? Thanks for your answer :)
