Last weekend I had a couple of Sephora gift cards burning a hole in my wallet so I went in for a Special Occasion make-over. I didn't really have a special occasion, but make-overs are just plain fun, so why not?
I asked for a clean, fresh, spring look that was natural looking, with an Angelina Jolie cat eye. These were some of the inspiration photos I took with me:
It was really all about the skin more than anything else.
Here's how I looked when I walked in the store:
|One of my eyes was a little swollen which is why|
I look a little lopsided and wonky~
And now, be gentle with me because I'm really putting myself out here for you....here's how I looked with all of my make-up removed:
|Have you ever tried taking a photo of yourself|
in a public place with no make-up on???
It's a little awkward~
Here are some of the magic tools we pulled out:
|I really love Two Faced make-up and this|
Natural Face kit is super gorgeous and versatile.
And here's how I looked when I walked out:
Not exactly the life altering transformation that we all hope for when we get a make-over but I love the make up and used up all of my gift cards.
I ended up purchasing the Two Faced Palette you see above, along with some Dior Mascara primer, and an amazing HourGlass lipstick in the colour Fable. The lipstick is a crazy expensive but the cool thing is that you can get refill cartridges for half the price. Next time I go in I also want to grab the Laura Mercier Tinter Illuminizer.
I think these photos are much better:
|I always look better when I'm hanging out|
with two of my most favourite people in the world!
