I started experimenting with make-up in high school as well. I didn't wear much of it to school because it apparently wasn't appropriate. I've always been fascinated with make-up and how it can transform a natural beauty into someone GORGEOUS and GLAMEROUS.
What I have decided to do is start a little "log" on "creations" I come up with and some make up looks that inspire me to do it either on myself or others.
I started out using my friend Courtney (@courtneydion on twitter).
This is her BEFORE
It may seem as if I used a ton of different products on her face but I didn't. For her face, I used
MAC Studio Moisture Tint SPF15 Deep Dark to cover her entire face. (It's translucent so it made applying the rest of the make up easy). Under her eyes used Bobby Brown creamy concealer in "Honey". I also used MAC Mineralize Skin Finish:Medium Deep for a tint of bronze. I cleaned up under her brows with the stainless steel razor then used a fine tooth comb with gel to style them with out chopping them all up.
For her eyes, I applied MAC NC35 concealer to her eye lids and applied the listed eye shadows: MAC Satin Taupe, MAC Sketch Velvet and Cover Girl Pearl. To her natural eye lashes I applied Dior Show Mascara 090 and Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Black to the bottom lashes. Then I applied false lashes to the top lid.
For her lips, I used Chanel Lip gloss no.65, MAC Lip gloss' Chi and Underage
HERE IS THE FINISHED PRODUCT. *please excuse my horrible camera as this will get better*lol
I also styled her natural hair and took these photos in natural light.
