Beauty Basics Before & Afters Makeup

Makeover Monday – Lori

This beautiful woman just became a grandmother for the first time! I am so excited for her and knowing what a kind and generous woman she is, that little sweetheart is pretty darn lucky to have her. I am sure you can see it just by looking in this photo because her goodness shows through her beautiful eyes.

I really wanted to bring out those beautiful blue eyes and one of my very favorite ways to do that is by using a raspberry colored blush. (IIID Blush in Ruby)
And a pink toned shadow (Sunset) on her lids (I didn’t use this under her eyes because it might have made her look like she was crying. The I did a coat of mascara focusing on the root on her top lashes to give the definition of liner without the added heaviness.
I filled her brows with Charcoal Brown Shadow (which goes considerably warmer when used on warm skin tones, magic!)
For her skin I started with Argon Milk to give her skin some glowing moisture. Next I used IIID Foundation in Sunlit and Stone as her HAC and coverage. ( Recommend NYX Taupe blush and Mary Kay Concealer  as a sub)
For her lips I used Dior Addict Lip Glow to give her that natural looking pink and topped it with a little bit of gloss in Oh La La.

Happy Monday!

      2 months (fingers crossed!) We revamped the whole line and packaging and everything so while I am so excited about it, I’m also extremely stressed making everyone wait! AHHHH!

    Adoooore this makeover! Beautiful before and after, and I love how blended and soft everything looks. Also, interesting about Sunset and why not to use it under the eyes- I’ll have to remember that! I often use my Naked3 palette for smokey day looks and Liar/Nooner are really pink and might not be the best for putting on the lower lash line after all.

      THANK YOU! and hey, I’ve used pink on the bottom before and it looked fine, but I also lined the bottom with black or dark brown, without liner it’s a little teary:)

    I am wondering if I could use dark foundation since you used medium on her? I get fairly dark in the summer time. How dark of skin tone have you used the dark on?

    My first thought when I saw the before picture was, “Hmmm, I can’t picture her with dark shadow under the lower eye lashes. I wonder how this one will look.” Knowing how you often use eye shadow under the lower lashes, this was the very very first time I questioned that technique and wondered how “your style” would look on her. Well, dang, girl! You knew just what to do! (Not that I ever doubted it!!!) As so many say, “She just looks like an even lovelier version of herself!” Cheers to her for obviously taking good care of herself and her skin and cheers to you for another wonderful MM that inspires us all!

    She looks awesome. The Argon Milk really makes her skin look younger and dewy.

    Are you *sure* you didn’t use eyeliner too? 🙂 Wow!!! I agree with PennyP above. When I saw her before picture I wasn’t sure how “your look” was going to work on her. She looks fabulous! Did you spray tan her? Even her neck and chest looks much darker in after pic.

    Are Lori’s features too light for false eye lashes or would it simply not be the right combination for a natural look?
