FOTD: Makeup Artist Gig Makeup Look

Hi Bellas,

As many of you know, I'm a freelance makeup artist.  Sometimes I'll do a super early morning wedding and I've got to make sure i'm put together.  I've got a pretty standard look I wear which is polished but super simple.  I'll wear it to gigs where I don't have a lot of time to get ready but I want to still be a walking advertisement of my work.  Check it out!
This look is all about clean features.  I spent most of my time on glowy, contoured skin and gave emphasis to my brows and lashes.
This is a great everyday look for those of you who are also more subtle.  Skipping intricate eyeshadow definitely cuts down on getting ready time.  Instead, I choose to highlight the tear duct and browbone and use liner and lashes for emphasis
Go for a low-maintenance cheek and lip that will last through hours of makeup application.  I've found that wearing high maintenance lip colors like hot pinks or red are difficult to maintain during gigs when I have no time for personal touch-up.  In case you're wondering, I took these shots in the parking lot of the garage of the hotel where I was doing the bride's makeup lol.  Got to get it in wherever you can!
This look is actually very similar to the one I did in my Summer Glowy Makeup Tutorial.  Hope you all enjoyed.  I've also got some shots of the bridal makeup I did for this wedding coming soon!
