Before and after make-up…

Before and after make-up…

Project Description

Sue came to see me as she felt she was stuck in a make-up rut.  She had been using the same make-up since the 80’s and was just feeling like the products and shades weren’t working for her anymore, so doing nothing for her face.

I first concentrated on making sure Sue uses the right products to prep with, so this means using a really good cleanser and moisturiser to suit her skin.

Next came foundation.  Sue was concerned about her under eye darkness and really wanted to learn how to counteract that.  I showed her what to apply and how to apply it, making it as easy and as quick as possible for her.  I then corrected under her eyes and concealed too, powdering only where needed.

Brows where next – Sue had had her brows tattooed on, and unfortunately it had left an orange tinge to the area.  I had to cancel this out first and then I applied a soft shade to enhance her brows, thickening them slightly for a more youthful appearance.

Eyes were next, I used textures and products to define and enhance Sue’s beautiful eyes.  Sue did love her trusty blue eyeliner, and I didn’t want to say she had to stop using it.  So we opted for a Blue cobalt shade but kept it only on the upper lash line.  I also showed her how to apply some false eyelashes, so she could use them for an evening out or special occasion.

I used bronzer to create a lovely warmth to the skin and then on the apples of the cheeks a pop of blush and highlighter.

We finished with a gorgeous pop of colour on the lips, layering to ensure it stayed on.

Sue felt amazing when she left as she is a real glamour puss and loves looking and feeling her best…exactly what the right make-up should do for you!
