10MGMT Chicago Model Miriam Coix: Beauty Breakdown


I had a lovely time working with Miriam Coix. A beautiful person inside and out. Also, a dream to work with as she knew every since facial expression to give me when I was applying her makeup. Heres what I used:

Foundation: I used Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, M.A.C. Studio Fix Fluid, Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer under the eyes and Tom Ford Traceless Stick Foundation to go over her contour so make it look more natural. I then set her face with Chanel Universel Loose Setting Powder with a folded powder puff.

Eyes: For a base I used M.A.C. Painterly Paint Pot all over the lid, I then went in with Viseart‘s Theory Palette using the matte cream shade also as a base as well as the shimmer light shade. For the crease I used Urban Decay Smog and highlight I used Urban Decay Virgin (my absolute favorite). I used Kat Von D Liquid Liner, Kevyn Aucoin Eye Pencil in Primatif, KoKo Lashes in Misha and Guerlain Maxi Lash Mascara.

Contour/Highlight: I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit in Light using the middle brown shade and then went over it with my absolute favorite cream contour product, Tom Ford’s Shade & Light Intensity One. I set that with M.A.C. Mineral Skin Finish in Deepest Dark. For highlight I used Tom Ford Shade & Light Intensity One and Becca Moonstone.

Blush: A mix of M.A.C. Blushbaby and Hourglass Cosmetics Mood Exposure

Lips: I used Kevyn Aucoin Flesh tone lip pencil in Medium, M.A.C. Peachstock lipstick and Tom Ford Nude Vanille

Brows: Kevyn Aucoin Brow Pencil in Brunette topped off with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder in Brunette.

Hair: Curled using GHD 1 1/2 Curler, teased with Bumble & Bumble Dryspun Hairspray and set with Oribe Ultra Fine Mist Hairspray.
