Rooney Mara W Magazine 4 Decades of Fashion Collaboration

fab fourHello Guys & Dolls!

As I type this I’m frantically running around like a crazy person trying to last minute pack for my trip to IMATS LA!!! I’ve never flown so I just want to be sure that everything fits & is TSA approved yadda yadda… I’m nervous about flying in general but when I think about them confiscating my beauty products…goosebumps!

Today I’m sharing with you a collaboration series with 3 fabulous makeup artists, my friends Heather, Dawn and Angie. In the November Issue of W Val Garland celebrated 4 decades of makeup on 4 of the moment actresses. We’ve teamed up to recreate the 4 looks featured. I hope you enjoy these editorial looks, and will check out the other 3 looks!

We are going to be a foursome at this year’s IMATS LA so watch out for us if you’ll be there.

    You’re so talented and gorgeous, Cora!
    Your lip tars mix looked pretty like the newest OCCs one, Black Dahlia. Were you inspired by this one?
    Kisses from a Brazilian fan! ^-^

    I love this look. Minus the severe contouring (I’m not that brave) it’s actually very wearable. Excellent job! Hope you had fun at IMATS.

    Is Angie goldiestarling?

    I was intrigued by the eye palette, so I checked it out on Sephora. The Lorac palette doesn’t look like that. It appears you used the Sonia Kashuk Instructional eye palette.
