Next, I applied eyeshadow. Jenn's eyes are prominent and protrude slightly with a
heavy upper lid. By using the three neutral shades of eye color, I created an artificial
contour to the upper lid. This was accomplished by applying the dark shade of eye color
to the crease of the eye, extending it out slightly at the outer corners of the eyes.
Medium eye color was applied to the lids themselves and to the inner corners of the eye,
while the lightest shade of eye color was applied along the underside of the brows and
in a small circular area on the lid. The eye colors I used were "creamy" colors, which
give a smooth, soft finish for a natural look.
Another "creamy" color choice was in cheek color. I chose a soft, neutral "pinkish"
blush with a lighter, complimentary shade. Most manufacturers offer two-tone sets for
cheek color, which are great choices for highlighting and contouring the cheekbones of
the face. By applying the lighter shade across the cheekbones themselves and the
darker pink color just below the cheekbone, I created an enhancement to the natural contour of Jenn's face.
To finish the look, I added a soft pink lip color. The product was similar in texture
to a tinted lip balm, very creamy, and Jenn really liked it. It is designed to even out
the color of the lips, to moisturize and adds its own SPF protection from harmful UV rays of the sun.
The finished look was one that is soft and natural, exactly what Jenn wanted. It was
also a pleasant experience for Jenn herself, who now intends to include make-up in her daily regimen.
