I had to show this picture as I loved the colours. Have to thank Make-up Forever on this one. Sona was kind enough to share her before and after picture.
I believe in achieving a great canvas with correct concealing, foundation and contouring. Colours doesn't nessasari mean it's "prettier" if the foundation base or skin isn't at its best. I always try to get my clients to have great looking skin, because in the end, you see more of the skin then anything else. This example has colour but, I bet with just eyeliner and lipgloss I think Sona would still have looked great. That's why it's very mportant for skin care and right choice of foundation.
This is what I used:
Primer: Smashbox Photofinsih Duo ( artificial light and photo finish duo)
Foundation: MAC Studio Fluid n NC 35
Under eyes: Prescriptives Camouflage Concealer
Powder: Sephora, same shade and 2 shades darker for contour and shading, POP Beauty Highlight pallet ( yellow packaging ) on her forehead, bridge of nose, chin and under eyes
Brow: MAC Cork Powder
Eyes: All Make-up Forever Bottom (159 matte blue and 92 matte purple ) Top Outer corner (92 matte bright pink) Lid ( 0 matte white ) Inner bottom and lower a shimmery white highlighter from POP Beauty Highlighter pallet
Rimmed bottom liner with Cargo black liner and lined the top with Smashbox Gel Liner and added falsies
Cheeks: Cargo Blue Ray blush
Lips: MAC Brave with MAC clear gloss

Wow great transformation! :]

you did an amazing job, especially with concealing her undereye circles. Did you use any eye cream to help or was it all done with the concealer?
