I started this blog to showcase my love for beauty and my love of inspiring stories. Today’s post is a bit of inspiration and a bit of beauty. I had the honor of doing makeup for my beautiful co-worker Shirley for a special event. She is a leader in her community and at our job. She consistently goes above and beyond to make things better and easier for the people that she is connected to and she does all of this while being a single parent. Just recently she was elected to a leadership position in the community where she leads over 9,000 people. On this day Shirley was getting ready to attend an induction ceremony because she was elected president of her graduate school alumni association.
Shirley had try hard to make her before photo look plain. She has great skin so it was easy to make her look beautiful. She wanted a natural look (which I love) so we used
Face: L’Oreal True Match Foundation, MAC Loose Powder,
Eyes: NYC eyeshadow base, MAC all that glitters, and carbon in the crease, Revlon Lash Potion Mascara, and Sephora black lace Liner
Lips: Subculture Lip liner, NYX clear gloss, Wet and Wild Smokin Hot Pink
Her Brows were perfect so I just touched them with a tiny bit of eyeshadow with a my angled brush to fill them in.
