Red lips and black precision eyeliner (TIGI Cosmetics)… Need I say more?
Cosmetic breakdown: TIGI Cream Foundation in Fair
                                   TIGI Blond Brow Defining Pencil 
                                            pencil in your shape by lining against the hair grow (to color hairs) then use 
                                            the tool at the end of your TIGI pencil to groom and soften the line.
                                   TIGI Vanilla High Density Single Eyeshadow 
                                            sweep the whole eye
                                   TIGI High Density split 
                                            sweep the crease (gold) 
                                            and dab the tear duck area (mix gold and silver) 
                                   Two sets of dimi lashes and a mascara application …top lashes only
                                   TIGI Black Patent Liquid Liner 
I like to use the lashes as my guide.  Lay the applicator on the lashes, slide the length of the brush next to the skin, and glide along the lash line. Start in the middle of the lid (where you want the most concentration of color) and glide to the outside edge of the eye. Don't reload your wand with product. Use the wand that has slightly less product to apply liner to the inside corner of the eye in the same manner as before.  Don't forget to lift the brow while you apply product. This will insure that you get the color close to the lashes. 

                                   TIGI Glow Blush in Brilliance
                                   TIGI Decadent Lipstick in Luxury 
                                   Red lips need to be applied with precision so use a lip brush

These next photos were taken by me.
Same beautiful technique, just on a different beautiful face. This model has some slight color changes however the application in the same. Use a foundation the leaves the model/client flawless ( if her skin is already flawless don't over use foundation, less is always more when it comes to foundation and/or powder, especially when she will be photographed). This model has a slight line on the lower lid from the outside corner and faded to the center of the eye. She is also only wearing one set of lashes. Only TIGI Cosmetics were used.

The hair was prepped with TIGI Strong Mouse and Ego Boost (split end mender). Then the hair was blow dried with a round brush, smoothed with a flat iron and roller set. Ever section through the top was rolled back except the 2 front rolls, which were rolled forward. The back and side sections were all rolled down. Each roller was placed right on the section base and the base should be the size of the roller. After removing the rollers the hair was shaken and finger combed into place. You should shake the hair by sliding your hands under the hair and placing your finger at the scalp, then gently shake the tresses till the curl break up in a way that is pleasing to you. Then lightly finger comb the hair into place.
