Photoshoot - Polished to Perfection

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another Before & After!  My client was actually taking some graduation pics to celebrate her Master's Degree.  The key was to do natural makeup but with a little flair.  Here's a tip, it's all about lashes!
 
My client wanted to look like herself ... but still feel special. One of the easiest ways to do this is to use lashes.  For those who don't wear a lot of makeup, it does take a bit of convincing to make them understand that lashes can still look natural.  The key is to place the lash on the client letting is barely stick using the adhesive on the lash band so they can see what it looks like. This gives them a rough idea of how it looks.  If they like it glue it on, if they don't, stick with mascara. 



Here's What I Used:

FACE
Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer n Dark

Graftobian Warm #2 Palette

Love it! I feel that subtlety is one of the hardest looks to pull off because its so easy to get carried away with craycray colors. Great job Ren and your client is beautiful.
