GQ look on Jessie James Decker

eric-decker-jessie-james So a lot of you have asked me what products I used on Jessie in this GQ shoot.. Well lucky for you one of my resolutions is to blog more and post links of the products I use, so I thought why not start with the one person ya'll ask the most about!! My best friend Jessie James Decker. 

I have known her for almost 8 yrs and been doing her makeup most of the time. We always stay true to her beauty icons of Sophia Loren and Raquel Welch. For this issue of GQ we wanted glam but not super overdone. Here are the products I used on her skin to get a flawless, bronzed glow. 

For her flawless skin I always use Make Up For Ever HD Foundation in shade #153  This foundation is perfect for photo ready makeup. It gives a flawless finish and great coverage, however it still looks like your own natural skin. For concealer on shoots and in this one I used my fav product ever Kevin Aucoin skin enhancer in #8 and #10 . The tricky part about this concealer is that it is thick and needs to be used very, very sparingly. Also, with this one you must blend and warm up on your hand to help it melt better into your skin. Next apply under your eyes and bring up to your hairline to help highlight and contour your face.. I set her makeup with Make Up For Ever multi-use powder foundation. Most people love a translucent powder, however I love one with a little color a shade lighter than your natural skin tone. 

For her bronzy glow I use Tom Ford shade and illuminate in intensity one.  .If you are not comfortable with cream DO NOT use this product. It is very expensive and you need to be 100% sure you can work with it..I only use this for photo shoots only not meant in my opinion for a day to day basis..  If you are not comfortable with a cream and want something for more everyday use go for a more price appropriate option like Bobbi Brown in Bali which is what I went over the Tom Ford with in this shoot.. Also it is a fav of Jessie's and she uses it everyday almost as do it! To get a glow I lightly dust Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone on her cheekbones, above her lips and on the tip of her nose. This is the exact product I use to get my glow too.. Its my can't live without product!!!

Finally for her cheeks I actually use a lipstick in a very sheer peachy/nude color and I also use the same on her lips.. I use Hourglass "the nudes" lipstick in #2  and dab it along the apples of her cheeks for a very subtle wash of color. I then take the Bobbi Brown lip liner in Beige and slightly over line her lips.

I know it seems like alot of steps but keep in mind this is what I used in this shoot not for everyday makeup.. Studio makeup needs to be a little more in depth and this is what I used to create Jessie's skin in this shoot and how I do it for most of her shoots.. Hope you guys enjoy!!!
