Alexis Vogel Inspired Makeup Look

This is a requested look from someone on Facebook. She sent me some looks created by a makeup artist I really like named Alexis Vogel. Alexis is responsible for giving Pam Anderson her signature look. This is my take on that look, and how I created it.  You can use any products that work for you. I've only included the type of product I used so you can choose a brand that works with your budget.

What I used:
  • Full coverage foundation
  • Under eye concealer 1 shade lighter than your foundation
  • Pressed powder
  • Gray eyeshadow
  • Two pigments: nude & pink shimmer powder
  • Gray shadow pencil
  • Shimmery eyeshadow primer
  • Light pink lip stain
  • Nude lip pencil
  • Light pink shimmery gloss
  • Black Mascara
  • Black cake eyeliner
  • Peach shimmer blush 
  • Matte Bronzer 
  • Universal brow pencil
  • Brow sculpting gel

How I created the Look:
    •      Apply foundation, concealer & pressed powder as usual
    •      Define brows with brow pencil & set with brow gel
    •      Prime eyelids (top and bottom) with eye primer
    •      Take the gray eyeshadow pencil and trace along your lower lash line. Smudge with a smudger brush or qtip
    •      Trace along the line you just created with some gray eyeshadow 
    •       Take a folded tissue and hold against the side of your eye touching your outer brow and bottom corner of eye. This will be the guide for your cat eye.  Apply a gray eyeshadow (I used Urban Decay Mushroom) of your choice pushing the shadow down into the lash line.  Take the shadow into your crease, and the outer corner of your eye. The tissue will prevent you from going too far with the shadow
    •         Moisten a qtip and clean up any edges
    •         Take a wet slanted eyeshadow brush and apply the cake eyeliner going in toward the lash line.  Stroke the color down into your natural lash line
    •  Use a blending brush to soften any harsh edges and blend the shadow to desired softness
    • Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler
    • Apply 2 coats of mascara to top and bottom lashes
    • To polish off the eye look, apply a tiny bit of pink shimmer pigment just under the brow bone and to the very center of lid if desired 
    • Apply blush to the apples of cheeks
    • Apply bronzer to temples, cheeks and under the jaw if desired
    • Apply lip stain to lips
    • Outline lips, slightly over drawing the lip line with nude liner
    • Top with gloss
    • Apply a tiny bit of nude pigment to center of lips to make lips look fuller

       This is a dramatic eye with a pale lip. The look is very sexy, and fun and super feminine. I hope you enjoyed this post, and if you have any other looks you'd like to see or any questions, please post in the comment box below.
