Makeover: Neutral Smokey Eye

March 29, 2010

I did a makeover yesterday, which included eyebrow grooming, full face (some contouring), and lash application.  She had a lot of redness on her face that I corrected and concealed.  I think it was due to a mask she did prior to visiting me.  Please, if you know you’re getting your makeup done, do your facials at least a week prior to just in case you have a reaction to the products used during your facial.  She also had dark under eye circles, that I concealed.
