A New, Simpler—and Quicker—Routine
"Shauntavia can do her makeup much more quickly and still get a dramatic, sexy look," said Mally. After moisturizer, Mally patted a little concealer under Shauntavia's eyes. Then she applied a light veil of powder foundation ("Shauntavia's mix of two foundations worked well, but it's easier to find one that's a close match, and a powder is better if your skin is a little oily like hers"). She used a peachy-gold blush right on the apples of Shauntavia's cheeks to give her a glowy, angelic look—a nice counterpoint to her smoky eyes. On her lips, Mally applied a soft caramel lipcolor, shiny and sheer. "Play up your eyes or your lips, but not both," said Mally. (Get Mally's step-by-step directions to create smoky eyes.)
On Shauntavia's damp hair, Patrick used a volumizing spray, working it through from roots to ends; then, because her hair is very fine, he added a bit of styling product to thicken it. After sectioning it, he blew it dry to seal in the product.
