Mini Makeover

A mini-makeover that I gave a friend whilst we drenched her in a water fight! Why I call it mini is because I had to do it very quickly, so I wasn't so precise and all and could have done a much better job.

She is a lovely to work with as she has amazing skin and she looks so pretty naturally too, so I did not have to do much. She wanted something easy to pull off hence the not-in-your face make up.


and the after...

Products used:

- Maybelline 24 hour Superstay foundation
- MAC Moisture Cover Concealer in NC30
- Kryolan Eye Pencil in Brown used to fill in the brows
- MAC Blusher in Eversun on the cheeks
- Miners Tin o'Tint in Cherry on the lips
- ELF Mineral Eye Primer on the lids
- MAC All that glitters Eyeshadow all over the lids
- MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack to line the upper and lower lash line

I styled the hair using Clound 9 hair straighteners.

The foundation was hers which was a little light for her and we would have been better using a slightly darker one. However I loved the Maybelline 24 hour foundation, it was matte and gave a beautiful flawless finish!

I should do more of these in the future, its so much fun.
