2nd Before/After

This one's pretty dramatic huh? Boy my skin's gotten pretty out of control lately. I have incredibly sensitive skin and it usually results in some blotchiness and hives, as you see here above my lip and under it, and the ruddiness of my cheeks. Also my eyebrows are tragic as ever, but as I've stated in my eyebrow tutorial video, the best base I can pluck my brows into to get the type of brows I desire. After all, I can't make my brow hairs grow into what you see in the After. If I left them unplucked they would just be a spotty dense patch. Other then that, I look like a normal girl. Hooded eyes, genetic puffiness under them, nose on the bulbous side, olive complexion, not so noticeable lips.

So how did I jazz my complexion, lips, brows and eyes up? I used a shimmery white-gold shadow on my inner tear ducts, and only two shadows on my lids and lower lash line: a dark smokey purple-brown and a black to intensify the outer edges. I kept it soft with no eyeliner, something highly unusual for me. The lashes I use are Ardell 105s, very prettily separated and long. I fill my brows in as usual with my Maybelline Define-A-Brow and for my complexion, I even it out with Graftobian's Cream HD foundation, set with powder, bronze with Benefit Hoola Bronzer, and warm up with NARS' Orgasm Blush. Finally, I go to my favorite lip combo of MAC Whirl lipliner and MAC Cherish lipstick.

  1. You did your makeup so beautifully! It looks so lovely! For your skin, I recommend trying to wash it with oatmeal. It is good for sensitive skin, and really helped me out! Check youtube for a video on it! xx
