Another Before and After

Hi Bellas,


Happy Friday! Whew it's been a long, cold, tiring week. I'm excited to sleep in tomorrow. Last night I went to an Orchestra concert at my old university. It was so beautiful! I need to get out an enrich my mind with events like that more often. No thoughts of makeup the whole time, just enjoying beautiful music.

Anywho, a few weekends ago I did a makeover on a friend of a previous client. Adrienne was having a big birthday party thrown for her, and her friend gave her a makeover as a present.

Her makeup was pretty easy to do. We wanted to do something fun and sparkly. On her eyes I used a mixture of purples. We put Stars N Rockets eyeshadow from MAC on her inner lid and Adrienne loved it so much she asked me to pack on some more. Moving forward, I'll get more closed eye shots so that you can see the lid colors better.


As you can see in the picture, I did a little bit of contouring with the eyes. With the help of eyeshadow and liner, I gave the illusion of lifting up Adrienne's eyes on the outer corner. All with the power of makeup!


Unfortunately I don't remember all of the products I used, but I thought I'd post the picture anyways. Don't you love her hair too? Short and sassy!






Any big plans this weekend?

Also, my girl Ann at www.cosmeticjunkielover.com is having $1.99 on all US Shipping orders, get your discounted NYX products!

Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

Great job Ren

She looks fabulous!!!. I'm loving the purple which has fast become my top fav eye color. Over the weekend I went to Sephora and spent my $15 gift card. Only got two things BUT I got to try so many things I had favored.

One was the Makeup Forever loose eyeshadow #954 which is the prettiest purple i've ever seen. The sales lady gave me a samp to take home and I've been sporting it all this weekend. :O)

Iyah said...

oh ate ren! you're making me want the nars holiday eyeshadow! :) I must put it on my wishlist! :D

C said...

Hey RenRen,
I was wondering if you could do a tutorial on how to contour eyes the way you did with the birthday girl? Thanks so much!
