My Aunty Monica is in town from Calgary and I always love doing her makeup when she’s in town. We go to Hawaii often together where I do her makeup most nights, so it’s always like a bit of a throw back when I make her over.
Tonight she’s headed to a concert with my my mom, so I did her makeup. It’s fun and a bit challenging doing makeup on lots of different types of people with different skin tones, ages, features, and tastes and totally what I thrive on. Since i know she doesn’t like anything too overboard (and neither do I), I simply perfected her skin and then although you can’t tell from this pic, added a subtle, shimmery green liner to her top lash line before adding a few coats of mascara. It’s important to avoid any shimmery shades of shadows as they can sink in and enhance fine lines.
Especially against brown eyes, I thought the unexpected shade of green was a really pretty touch and something she probably wouldn’t do herself.
1) Before. Bare face.
2.) Still not finished, but skin prepped:
-Foundation (two colours mixed to achieve her perfect shade)
-A setting powder
-Blush & Contour
-Highlight on cheekbones (My obsession: M.A.C. Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle!)
3.) Ta-da! All ready.
Still quite natural looking, but such a difference!
