Before & Afters Hair Makeup

Warm it up with some RED!

I used to work with Lindsey and one day I had this epiphany that she should be a redhead. I knew it would work wonders to brighten up those green eyes of hers! It was so nice to finally realize that dream last week. She is a knockout!


What I did:
Obviously we dyed her hair a cinnamon red first of all. Then…
Filled in those eyebrows for a nice striking arch. Notice how bringing them closer together balances out the face and brings the focus to the eyes.
Added some lashes. She has big eyes and I really wanted to give her that come hither stare. No better way to do that than with some falsies.
Little contouring on the cheekbones and the jaw topped with some Tarte Flush blush.
Lined her lips with the Cover Girl Mink Perfect blend liner, then filled them in with some sheer red gloss.
So, do you love it?

    These pictures don’t even truly do justice as she looked even better in real life.

    This is absolutely stunning! Truly. What do you use for contouring and can you do a video about that–what products, how to do it, etc? I’d be very interested. Wish you lived near me–I would love to look this gorgeous with a little make-up!

    Thanks again Cara! Your work is amazing. I now have incentive to go to bed early enough, to get up early enough to do my hair and make up 😛

    What I like most about this look is how it looks as if there’s no make-up at all on her. I do believe that her previous hair color washed her out she had no color to her face and her eyes were lost. She truly looks fabulous and like she had natural beauty

    What face shape is she? I have her same shape/hairline and I’m hoping you can help me out. Oval? Heart? Round? #spotmyshape
