When I met Maria I was blown away at how beautiful she was.
gorgeous skin, eyes, bone structure…
Plus I noticed she kind of looked like Eva Mendez
After a fair amount of hinting around she agreed to let me play dress up with my makeups (Christian is in a phase of adding an S to everything. i.e yesterday when he dropped some eyeshadow on the carpet he went and grabbed his golf clubs and said “Mommy, can I golf your makeups?)
I had a lot of fun and she is a new mom so I got to see her little munchkin. Which didn’t make me baby hungry at all, not even a little. I mean he has the chubbiest little cheeks, and that baby powder smell, and how comfortably he fits in that little nook on my elbow…OK, a little baby hungry.
I really wanted to add a little bit more of a striking arch to her brow and draw a lot off attention her beautiful brown eyes. I used mostly nude colors on her lids ( Lorac Palettle Lt. Bronze & Nude) then lined with black liquid liner (all around her eye even in her lower tearline…sounds crazy but if you are careful it can be a good way to get dark black in there quickly) Followed by some light contouring on the chest, nose and cheeks with Bahama Mama Bronzer. Then I did some glowy highlighting by adding my illuminator to my concealer and placing that in two triangles under her eyes in her nose and chin.
Then some Covergirl Mink eyeliner to line her lips and NYX nude lipstick (Love this color!)
I think when a baby comes and your days and nights seem blend together into one big half-awake blur. Sometimes you just need a little something more than your hurried shower routine to remind yourself that yes, you’re a mom, but you’re still a smokin’ hot babe too.
PS I took the weekend off so I am getting to all the comments and answers etc. as soon as I get the little one down tonight!
