FOTD: Head Shot Makeover - Natural for Women of Color

Hi Bellas,

I wanted to share a makeover I did a few weeks ago.  I had a new client that wanted some professional pictures for job/interview prospects.  I decided to give her a fresh, makeup look that would give her the polished look that would get her the job.  Check it out!

The first thing I focused on was skin - she had some uneveness that I corrected using the Makeup Forever Orange Corrector.  To achieve the correct skin tone, I used multiple shades of Graftobian Glamourcreme Foundation.  I added warmth into her skin using bronzers from Cargo and Covergirl Queen Collection.
On her eyes I went for a bronzey vibe that would appear natural on camera.  I used MAC all that glitters and bronze on the lid, saddle in the crease and a bit of sketch in the outer v to contour.

I really wanted her to feel fresh so I went for an orange color tone on her cheeks (graftobian red blush) and lips (viseart lipstick palette).  I know oftentimes flash photography can pale you out so I wanted to give her a good enough amount of color on her complexion to brighten her up.

Hope you all enjoyed!  Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
