The Pink Panther for Institute Magazine

"Pink Panther" has been released today inside Institute Magazine.
Here's a look at some work behind the scenes:

Pele and I instantly connected when we first spoke about the makeup for this editorial; we wanted to highlight Rose's features and go a bit extreme with the color. I always wanted to try a neon pink makeup look, so I was really excited to express myself and try something new.

The pinks were a combination of MAC's "Full Fuchsia" and "Pinch O Peach" 
to exaggerate the contours in her face. I blended and blended and blended for almost 2 hours so the colors seeped seamlessly into her skin with a fluffy brush like the MAC 168 Contour Brush.

Her base foundation is Face Atelier "Ultra Pro Foundation" in Shade #2

Of course, I used my magical Inglot highlighter to create that beautiful glow for the beauty shots.

Her lips were MAC's "Magenta" lip liner and 3-4 different lip glosses on top.

Rose's hair is naturally curly, so I added more curls and more volume so it looked like a lion's mane when she walked down the streets of Chicago.

Here is the rest of the editorial from Institute Magazine.

  1. Very enjoyable read, Andrea! I love what you did with her hair, and the make up is perfect for the "Pink Panther" effect. Her overall look fits well with Chicago in the background. Great job all around! -Tailor Linn
