Face Makeover (2)Previous Page
Many women make the mistake of thinking eyeliner and mascara colors have to be black, when a softer, brown shade will give the eyes the definition they crave and provide a very natural look. While most nighttime looks need darker eyeliner and mascara colors, using these same colors for a daytime look leave you looking overly made-up. Consider keeping two sets of mascara and eyeliner, one for day, and one for night.
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.
