I used MAC's smolder, a black eyeliner around the lipline and filled it in with MAC nightmoth lip liner. I then used lip conditioner to soften and add a little shine.
To create the nude eye, I used two very pale skin colored eyeshadows, bliss and linen by smashbox. Add a frosty shadow on inner corners of the eye, and volia! I used flirt by smashbox, but copacabana by Nars is a great highlighter as well.
Matthew Green straightened the ends with at flat iron on Victoria's natural wavy hair and created waves on Alexandra's hair using Schwarzkopf Hair Products: [ "Grip It" mouse / "Dust It" powder / "Elastic" hair spray ]

We had beautiful girls, an amazing team and perfect lighting ~ so I guess the fact that I captured these on my Canon G9 on auto setting, wasn't all luck.
Kelly and I, kept playing around with the ideas of friends dressing alike, which is 'big' right now, but for me, brought back a time when my best friends were everything in this world. We shared closets and secrets and skipped school and yes, were all-round crazy bad girls. Everyone must explore their dark side in their youth, and while we touched on this theme for spring, you'll see the full scope of the idea in my FW13 collection for primary.

With your one wild and precious life?"
