|Well my work was approved and the rest is history.
I headed to Albuquerque for the People magazine shoot
with Zoe Saldana.
Most of the makeup I used to create her look was
by Dior. I started with the
Backstage Face & Body foundation
in two different shades so I can not only even out her skin
tone, but also contour, to keep it looking very natural.
I mixed the foundation with the Make Up For Ever
Ultra HD concealer to brighten areas like under the eyes.
I worked with colors from the Dior Backstage Eye Palette
in Amber Neutrals and Warm Neutrals to give her eye shape
and definition. I love that there is an eyeshadow primer
so you can have everything you need. I even used
one of the shadows for her eyebrows.
Next I grabbed the black Charlotte Tilbury Rock N' Kohl eyeliner, and applied
a thin line at the base of her lashes with a little flick then a quick smudge.
Lashes were natural looking by Nars and I topped them with the black Dior mascara.
Lips started with skin care products for your lips by Sknfix then topped with
a deep burgundy lipcolor from the Dior Backstage Lip Palette 001, then blotted
most of the color off so she was left with a soft stain on the mouth.
For the final touch highlighter was placed on various parts of Zoe's face for a soft
inner glow look using the Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette.
This is a look anyone can do, so if you try it be sure to share it with me and
tag me using my Instagram handle @candacecoreyma.
First I was in denial. My immediate reaction was to say "Zoe Saldana the actress?"
(stupid question wasn't it?....What other Zoe Saldana is there?)
The minute he said "Yes!" I blurted out "Yes I'm available!!!" I didn't even
check my calendar but if something was in the way I was going to move it!
I really wanted to do this shoot with Zoe!
Even though I agreed to do the makeup, I still had to wait to be approved.
The production manager had to give the go ahead, which isn't unusual,
but they also needed to make sure Zoe looked at my work
to approve of me doing the makeup. You see why I was freaking out now?
But all of that flew out the window this time.
I loved being a makeup artist thoroughly for
selfish reasons. I was going to get a chance to work
with the one and only Zoe Saldana!
That's a GREAT reason. Right?!
(no matter what your thinking...the correct answer is
"YES Candace thats the PERFECT reason!")
I'm a fan of science fiction and Zoe stars in some of my
favorite movies. Avatar, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Star Trek
the Avengers Infinite Wars , and of course Avengers End Game.
I don't normally get stressed or star struck, but when my agent
contacted me about doing her makeup for the pages of People
magazine, I almost freaked out.

|Have I ever told you why I became a makeup artist? I was never the girl who dreamed
of putting makeup on people since age 3. Nor did I sneak into my mother's purse to swipe
a lipstick due to my makeup obsession... I actually owned more makeup then she did.
No. None of that.
It was totally by accident. But to make a long (boring) story short, I became
a makeup artist because I loved making people feel good about themselves.
I know I know! "beauty is only skin deep" but there's
power in knowing you look good and having confidence from it.
That's what I loved creating for people when they looked
in the mirror after I finished their makeup.
So the moment I found out that I could do that, I was hooked.
I became a makeup artist for the love of people!
|PRODUCTS TO TRY!
I'm trying to pamper myself more often these days,
so small things like using a Luin hair towel can make
bath time more like spa time.
It's made of fine cotton from Turkey
with clips to keep it secure. It's a great way
to get your hair out of the way when you need to
do your facial masks.
I gave one away last month on my blog
so I could share the love. So luxurious!
|Even though it's not Summer you still need sunscreen but you
don't always remember to bring it. Hint has a little stick
sunscreen you can keep in your purse. It came really handy
when I was traveling with my family. These pocket sized
wonders are made with hydrating ingredience like vitamin E.
aloe, jojoba oil and grapeseed oil with water resistant
protections that isn't sticky.
