more prom makeup

Say hello to Felicia, who so kindly let me take pictures when I did her makeup for prom.

I evened out her skin tone using Mineral Photo Touch Foundation without completely covering her freckles. When you have freckles why try to hide them? Own them, it's who you are.

I thickened up her somewhat over-plucked brows with a SuperWear Brow Definer Pen.  Your brows are like a picture frame for your eyes so don't underestimate what great brows can do for you. :)

Botanical Shadow Primer was used as a base for her eye makeup to ensure her "look" would stay put for the entire evening. Two shades of Shadow were used along with Creme Liner and three coats of SuperWear Mascara to make her crazy naturally long lashes look even longer and thicker.

These two photos are courtesy of her wonderful mom, Lena.

Hair was done by the talented Bambi Wagers.

Felicia, you look beautiful and once again I had a wonderful time working with you!


Amber's prom makeup

Say hello to Amber, whose makeup I did for prom a few weeks ago.

She wore a beautiful green dress, fabulous earrings, and her hair was amazing (done by Sandra at Sheer Professionals in Wooster, OH), all of which I wanted to compliment with her makeup.

I gave her bold brows using Brush on Brow in Blonde to balance her "sculpted" hairstyle. On her eyes I used a light neutral shadow, a bronze shadow and added a splash of green in her inner corner to compliment the color in her dress. Creme Liner in Mahogany blended into her shadow and a few coats of Superwear Mascara finished her look.

When adding the same color of shadow that you are wearing doing it in smaller areas only will keep it from looking to "matchy-matchy" and like it's Amber's "green day".

Amber, thank you for allowing me the privilege of doing your makeup and sharing your pictures. You are beautiful!


prom makeup 2012

A few pictures of prom makeup I did last week.

Say hello to Tammy and her gorgeous eyes! Tammy wanted her eyes to be the focal point of her "look", trust me she doesn't need makeup to make that happen.

I wanted to compliment her dress and hair (which was done by Anita at Dexterity Salon).

I used two very light, neutral shadows with lots of Creme Liner in Mahogany and 3 coats of Superwear Mascara.

 I used Mineral Photo Touch Foundation to give her skin a flawless finish, Mineral Blush in Pink Quartz to give her a rosy glow and Luxury Gloss in Pale Petal to compliment the color and sequins in her dress.

Tammy, thank you for letting me share your pictures. You are beautiful!
