Hello! Hello! Hello!

I’m so excited to share this makeover with you! Recently I worked with the beautiful Krista. Not only is she a brilliant graphic designer and photographer (pssst!!! check her out), she’s a momma to be! For this makeover we aimed for a glowing complexion and overall gorgeousness.

Krista’s skin is already good to begin with and did not need much work. Her main skin concern is dryness and sensitivity. I used a primer to seal in any moisturizer and to protect her skin from the outside world. I then used a yellow-based moisturizing concealer stick on her forehead, nose, under eyes, cheeks and chin.  The yellow tones create a brightening effect and work to conceal any redness. I then used a CC cream in a shade slightly darker than Krista’s skin on the perimeter of her face. I blended everything together with a small dual fibre stippling brush to create an airbrush finish. I used a bright coral blush on the tops of the apples of her cheeks and blended the blush up her cheekbones and towards her temples. A touch of highlighter completed the skin. Krista already has amazing lips so enhancing them was simple. A touch of lipliner and a pink lipstick blended over was all I needed.

Krista usually uses purple and brown shades to bring out her green eyes. This time we used pink and brown to enhance her eyes and create a romantic look. For this look I started with an eyeshadow primer. I used a matte bronzer/contour blended into her crease to start. I then patted a matte pink shadow across the entire lid. I used a matte brown shade to softly shade in the outer 1/3 of Krista’s eyelid and to line her lower lash line. I then blended these two matte shadows together. I used a shimmery pink shadow overtop of the matte pink shade, focusing on the inner 1/2 of Krista’s eyelid. Lastly I lined her eyes with a black gel liner and blended it out with a brush. Two to three coats of black mascara finished the look.

Here’s one more picture of the finished look.
