Baubles, Beads and Beautiful Things

What goes better with fabulous, handmade, unique jewelry? The perfect makeup look, of course!
Mussels and Makeup had the pleasure of working with Chesley, owner and designer of Chesley Mae Designs, on her latest look book. Laura of Laura Morsman Photography captured Chesley’s trendy jewelry designs at this beautiful park in Austin, Texas. Isn’t model Jennifer Johnston absolutely stunning?! I could not have asked for a more perfect team to work with! I loved every minute of this shoot.

How to get the look:
I exclusively used the Arbonne cosmetic line for this shoot. I started with the Makeup Primer to even out the skin and get it ready for foundation application. Priming is always a necessary step, but it was extra important in this situation since we were shooting outdoors. Next I used the liquid foundation in Honey Beige. This foundation feels so light weight on the skin, but has a clean, airbrushed look to it, plus it has SPF 15. Bronzer was my best friend for this shoot. The look we were going for was very sun-kissed, so dusting all over with bronzer gives that warm, glowing appearance. Dusting over the whole face with Setting Pretty Translucent Loose Powder sets the make up and gives the face a finished look. As for the eyes, I used Linen, Smoke and Java Eye Shadows. And of course no look would be complete without It’s A Long Story Mascara!

Now for the LIPS… fabulous aren’t they? I fully lined her lips with Berry Lip Liner, then applied Iris Smoothed Over Lipstick and topped it off with some gold flaked Glossed Over Lip Gloss in Mallow.

Here are a few of the many amazing photos from the shoot. Enjoy!
