Last week, I had the pleasure of working with Annie & Anne, a dynamic mother/daughter duo. I must admit they definitely kept me on my toes as we worked to create their signature looks.
Annie is a seventeen-year-old high school student. Already a beauty, she was looking for a refresh and wanted to learn some beauty tips. I was eager to create a soft, natural but confident, age appropriate look for her - one that she could wear everyday.
Recap: I first applied moisturizer, then blended an oil-free, dual-finish foundation. I selected dual-finish, which is a combination of powder and foundation, because it perfectly balances skin tones. I chose a soft and flattering color that blended perfectly. Eyebrows are so important, and so often neglected. I brushed her brows and added some definition to them to frame her face. We chose a thick, creamy bronze glow lip gloss, NOT a shiny, greasy gloss. Soft pinks for blush- dusting from cheekbones to hairline - neutral shadows on her eyes and several coats of mascara.

Anne wanted to wake up her make up. She was ready for a refresh, a restyle, a reboot. I wanted to create a soft signature look that she could enjoy.
Recap: After moisturizing, I applied a dual-finish foundation to diminish the redness in her skin - which gave me a neutral canvas to work off of and created harmony and balance. I next groomed her brows and gave her some depth by defining them - with beautiful lips and cheeks my job was easy. I used neutrals on her eyes and added a soft brown mascara.
What a beauty!
