Coverjan08For those of you who were ‘wowed’ by PLUS cover model Whitney Cunningham’s look, we turned to MUA for the shoot, Tara Taylor! Here is what she had to say…

To enhance Whitney’s already flawless skin, I used Iman Cosmetics Stick Foundation. It’s oil-free and contains antioxidants, so it won’t clog the pores and it will help protect the skin from free radicals.

For Whitney’s soft smoky plum eyes we used MAC Paint in “Deep Shadow” blended up from the lash line just past the crease. This creates a base to hold the shadow and provides for a richer and more intense color. Blended on top of the eye base, as well as along the lower lash line, I applied NARS shadow in “Night Fever.” Tara then highlighted Whitney’s brow with Anastasia Eyelights in “Matte Camille.”

A light dusting of Makeup Designory’s “Garnet” cheek color brings youth and softness to the face.

Whitney’s lips are lined with MAC “Chestnut” liner, filled in lightly with NARS lipstick in “Afghan Red” and topped with a sheer shimmery gloss.
