Beauty Before & After...

I've been gone way too long! When I thought things wouldn't get busier it did... Between photoshoots, consultations, and events, time just flew past me. I have to admit I'm still catching up from the inauguration. :/

Nevertheless, because of some recent request of before and afters, I wanted to share one I did for the BET Honors a few weeks ago.

I can't say how much I enjoyed doing her face, because as a makeup artist we love the perfect symmetry of a face. Especially for contouring, and highlighting.

For her face I used alot of some of my newest addictions I have shared with you before... like My MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powders.. I used 4 different kinds on her to highlight in the areas I wanted to stand out, and the darker powders for the contouring, and a color close to her complexion, buffed in to perfection to give her a healthy glow.Add Image

For her eyes, I kept it neutral, and added 2 sets of Ardell Lashes. I used a pair of full lashes that was close to the length of her natural lashes, and then I used a pair of flaired side lashes to elongate her eyes...
To highlight her eyes and brow bone, I used YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch Highlighter, my new fav.

Even though it took me like an hour to do her face, it was so well worth it!
