A Sultry Soft Smokey Eye – Lisa Storey

kora-lisa-storey-a-smokey-eye-blog

Working with Miranda on many shoots, sometimes back-to-back days and occasionally two shoots in one day, I can see how her approach to health with organic choices really take effect. Her diet and using KORA Organics products keeps her skin healthy and balanced, and her energy consistent. I’m often curious of what food she brings to work, it’s always delicious, healthy on the go nutrition… that makes the long hours and need to remain energized much easier.

The make up looks can go in any direction… a sultry soft smokey eye like the one we created for the Swarovski campaign still looks fresh and bold even at the end of the day with Miranda’s eyes naturally sparkling through.

For this look I applied a peach gold (Tom Ford Cream and Powder Eye Color) on the lid and inner lower edge of the eye then a bronze to the outer eye, shaping and contouring to lift the eyes up. Next with a powder shadow (Tom Ford eyeshadow quad in Cognac Sable) I blended outwards to create the soft smoky effect. Chanel precision eyeliner in Amber on the inner lid and lashing of mascara completed the look.

I use my hands as a palette and am constantly cleaning them off so I always have KORA Organics Daily Hand Cream with me to nourish and replenish them after continual cleaning. At times I can get eczema (a type of dry skin) on my palms from using artificial hand soaps and detergents (when out and about) but I use the healing and protective KORA Organics Daily Hand Cream as my go-to treatment, knowing I can touch faces, prepare food etc. without the worry of having anything other than organic on my skin.

A Simple Fresh Faced Beauty Look by Lisa Storey

I have worked with Miranda on many different types of shoots and commercials and every time I am reminded of her approach to beauty, from not only what you put on your skin, but what you put in your body and how you feel contributes to how your skin looks. Eating organic and using organic products that nourish the skin (and body) when possible I think really makes a difference. As a make up artist its always amazing to create looks and watch Miranda bring her magic to them. Well moisturized skin is key for any look. I like to use KORA Organics Hydrating Day and Night Cream, sometimes mixing in a drop of KORA Organics Luxurious Rosehip Oil for extra richness. My favorite looks on Miranda always start with natural radiant dewy skin . The next step is applying the KORA Organics Tinted Day Cream followed by and rose tinted cream blush (La Praire Cellular Radiance Cream Blush) A little concealer where needed (Cle De Peau) and a soft pink tone added to lips and we have a simple fresh faced beauty look.

A Calming Energy On Set – Lisa Storey

kora-lisa-storey-a-calming-energy-on-set-blog

A favorite discovery of mine while working with Miranda was the KORA Organics Heart Chakra Essence. For a start I love the packaging, elegant narrow dark glass tube. The ball application that delivers just enough oil on your skin. I apply it to my wrists before starting make up. My hands are always close to the faces I’m working on and mine too… together we become surrounded with a calming aroma. I do believe, it has an effect…it reminds me to take some sweet deep breathes especially when in a challenging situation, like having to hurry up and get on set! I have experienced while working with Miranda how her approach to life resonates and inspires others, you see the curiosity that gets ignited about choosing a healthy and organic (when possible) lifestyle. I think kindness starts with taking good care of yourself, this, Miranda exudes…then you can spread that kindness everywhere and experience some genuine feel good moments! Another favorite thing to use is the KORA Organics Calming Lavender Mist and the KORA Organics Energising Citrus Mist. Gently spraying it in to the air around the face livens up make up and helps you feel refreshed …I also just offer a spray to anyone in the room…. its rarely declined!
