Makeover! Sarah

Onward with makeovers!  I really L-O-V-E doing these!  I hope ya'll are enjoying them, too.

I've been so fortunate that many ladies have been volunteering to model for me, so I am getting lots of practice applying makeup to others.  It is so different to put makeup on someone else, and I have found that I am really, really, really, REALLY slow at it.  I am getting a bit faster, and hopefully I'll be able to improve with my speed with more practice.

So, next up is Sarah!  Sarah is a very busy mom of 4 beautiful children, and she wanted an easy, everyday look... but, as we started talking, I realized that she wanted to try some bolder looks for special occasions, but she didn't know what to try, and didn't really have time to play around to figure out what would look good.  And let's face it, who has time to play with makeup with 4 children to care for?  So, I derailed the plan, and tossed her in to the deep end to pull her out of her comfort zone and into some glam-time!

Here she is before we started.  She has beautiful porcelain skin, adorable freckles, and those sparkling blue-green eyes!

And here she is, after!  We gave her a deep gunmetal eye, highlighted with an amber sparkling shimmer, and a soft smudge of smoke.


This next picture is my favorite!
