Here is our before and after "I'm not wearing any makeup" makeup look (products used below photo). As usual with all my before and after shots, there has been NO retouching to any photos, no filters, nothing but a lot of natural and artificial lighting. She already looks perfect before, but we just enhanced things a bit to make her feel more put together and refined. See how much more awake and alert she looks? Eyes are brighter, skin is glowing and face is instantly slimmer!
Primer | Foundation (color "Ivory") | Concealer/Highlighter (color "Ivory") | Concealer (color "NW20") Contour (color "N7") | Blush (color "Orgasm") | Powder | Brows (color "brunette") | Eyelid (color "Riviera Rose") | Eye crease (color "Trax") | Eyeliner (color "Graphite") | Mascara (color "Black") | Lip liner (color "Innocent") | Lip cream (color "Natural")
To take this look from day to night, all I did was deepen her contouring underneath her cheekbones (using the same contouring product as her day look) and along her temples, and added a powder highlighter right above her cheekbones. Then I added another coat of mascara and deepened her crease color with a deeper shade, then dragged a pretty copper along her upper and lower lash lines. Then I lined her lips (color "Couture") and added a very deep berry shade of matte lipstick. Literally 5 steps and she went from.....
Beauty Blender sponge (well, that and good genes).
Steph had her lash extensions done recently and it just made me want to get mine done even more! If you are in Washington and around the South Sound area, check out her lash guru HERE. Steph just raves about her and I can attest first hand that they were done flawlessly.
I had such a blast doing this makeover and will try to do more of them so I can post them here for y'all to see! It's much nicer for my readers to get to look at faces other than my boring old mug every once in a while, amIrightoramIright?? Just for funsies, here is a before and after shot with her makeup-less face next to her dramatic look so you can really see the transformation:
