Makeover! Melodie

Melodie has beautiful skin.  Honestly, I had a hard time getting started with her makeup, because I was nervous about covering up her *radiant* skin, and therefore covering up her natural beauty, rather than enhancing it.

I used tiny, tiny, tiny  amounts of product on her skin. 

Aside from that, I totally called her coloring incorrectly.  Looking at the photo, I would say cool.  Seeing her in person, I thought warm.  She was a doll and blamed the lighting. ;-)  She is cool toned, by the way. 

Melodie wanted to make her eyes look bigger.  She has had issues lining her waterline, in that every product she has tried has made her eyes water to the point of washing away her eye makeup.  You all know I am the biggest fangirl for Mosha Katani's eye pigment, and I hoped that it would be the answer to Melodie's eye's sensitivity.


Side by side:
Look at these gorgeous peepers! 
We applied Mosha Katani's Eye Pigment in Black Sea to one lower waterline first, and waited a few minutes.  Then, we did the upper waterline of the same eye, and waited a few minutes.  When it passed the point that Melodie knew her eye would have rejected the product, we did the other eye!

As always, here is a complete list of what we used!

Blush: Tarte Cheek Stain in Full Blossom (I think this color has been discontinued.  Get it while you can!!!)

Powder: Stila In the Know ("earth") This is technically an eyeshadow, however, ANY powder that is the right color can be used on the eyebrows.

All-over: Wet n Wild  Silk Finish in 521A (Fuchsia with Blue Pearl), Lansinoh Lanolin

Lids: Stila In the Know("Clay" below browbone and before crease)
Lids: Urban Decay palette Naked 2  ("bootycall" on browbone, "verve" inner half of lid, "snakebite" outer half of lid, "snakebite" over lower lid) 

Sonia Kashuk Smokey Eye Brush Set, and other Sonia Kashuk eyeshadow brushes
Angled brush for eyebrow
