HELLO TO THE WORLD! I just got over a week of a pretty crappy cold for me and crusha and billy (ear infection for Billy included) and then at the end of the week when the light was finally showing at the end of the tunnel I got the STOMACH FLU! Not my finest hour. But I’m feeling back to myself now:) Everytime I come down with something I can’t help but think about all of the people who suffer from chronic illness and pain. I don’t know how they do it. It makes me feel so much compassion and amazement for them for what they accomplish. To anyone who does suffer that is reading this right now my heart goes out to you! I hope you know how amazing you are to keep pushing through it.
On to the makeover, which is ya know, Monday’s post. Just not this week:)
I hesitated to post this because we weren’t able to get a “professional” before because Jessica had to run a quick errand so I had to improvise with an iphone pic which is obviously not apples to apples so keep that in mind! I just couldn’t resist posting it because it’s of my gorgeous niece before Senior Prom and she is just glowing and glamorous and it would be a shame if y’all didn’t get to see it!
What I used:
I started with Tomas (which I actually did before I took the before) I used it because she’d been out in the sun all day and her face had gotten a lot less sun than her body (I think she was being smart and wearing a hat/ sunscreen) so I wanted to even her out so she matched:)
Next I used Laura Mercier Tinted moisture because she was fairly dry and also it helps neutralize things when I’ve just gone a little tan crazy.
Next I got to work on her eyes! I started with primer on the whole lid, then I used a pretty pewter shimmer color on her lid from crease down. I did black liner all the way around her eye then softened and set it with some black eyeshadow. And finally glued on some nice full lashes.
Using Brun I filled her brows into a nice pretty arch (adding a few hairs strokes with the Kat Von D pen as well)
Next I took to the contouring! I Used IIID Foundation in Stone (and shadow on her nose) then highlighted with Sunit. Dabbed some pink grapefruit in the apples of her cheeks and pearl on the tops of her cheekbones and on the bow of her lip)
Isn’t she just RADIANT!?
