Glittery Teal Eyes, Light Pink-Silver Lips

My third bright & colorful makeup tutorial for the Summer. The next look I'll do will be a little more subtle but will still have punches of color. ;)

Today's Client: Sarah, Farewell Party Look

Sarah wanted me to do her makeup again for her farewell party (she's moving back home! :( ) and so we did something a little more dramatic and fun. I did a neutral eye with a bit of gold  to highlight and dramatic lashes, shimmery warm bronzed cheeks, and a Barbie-pink lip (her request). The face products were pretty much the same, not as heavily contoured or highlighted but I did spray a bit of M.A.C Fix + afterward to give it a more dewy finish.

Today's Client: Sarah, TV News Reporter Look

So a friend is working on her resume to become a TV news reporter and asked me to do her makeup. She's making videos to send out to various news stations of her reporting the news, so I did her makeup that would show up well for TV. I've never really done makeup for TV but there are some key factors to keep in mind, such as: lighting (indoor studio or outdoor daylight), high definition TV, etc.

Since it's the news that's important and not really on how she looks, I wanted to keep the color palette pretty neutral but with definition and not be distracting. I used browns on the eyes, some bronzer and warm peach-bronze on the cheeks to warm her skin, and a neutral medium-pinky color on the lips. Her complexion was really nice and so I didn't need to use much foundation, concealer or powder but I did subtly contour and highlight the face. I also used a bit of shimmer just on the highlight points (brow-bone/inner corner) and even used false lashes to define her eyes.

Overall, I'm really happy with the look and more importantly she was too! :)
