Give me Glam

20130929-195913.jpg

Life is always a little better with a bit of sparkle and a lot of Glam.

I had the pleasure of working with this beautiful client on a look that she loves, GLAMOUR. She has great, clear skin to begin with, so there wasn’t much concealing that needed to be done. Her skin was so soft, almost like a new born baby! She wanted a glam look for a night out with friends. I’m all about the glam, so needless to say, I was excited to transform her!

  1. This is nice. I am starting out with makeup and don’t really understand what colors work and how to do my eyeshadow. I tried that lipstick but it was dry. I think I got the matte one. Any recommendations of getting it to not look so dry? Thanks. Love your blog.

    1. Hi Penny,

      Thank you. Eye shadows can be tricky. I would suggest starting off with a soft color that you like, and learning how to blend that correctly. Once you get that, you can add more than one color. They key is really blending which can be challenging. It certainly was for me when I first started.
      As for the lipstick being dry, you can either moisturize your lips with a nice lip balm before applying the lipstick, or add a little gloss to your lips after you apply the lipstick. Either way should do the trick 🙂

      1. I like gold and pink so I will try with those colors. Thanks. And I will try the lip balm before or gloss. Duh I should have known that.

  2. Also I don’t know how to use a liquid liner. I like the way it looks better than the pencil ones and the pencils smudge. Any tips?

    1. A lot of people struggle with liquid. The key is practice, practice, practice. It really is about having a steady hand, and knowing how to manipulate the tip of the liner. Practice every day, and also there are thousands of youtube videos out there teaching you step by step methods. They are worth watching. Good luck.

      1. my hand is shaky and when i mess up the line and try to fix it I look like a raccoon. it is hard to fix a mistake with liquid liner. I will watch the videos too. thanks!

        1. Yes, that will happen for sure. It’s liquid, and if it’s not dry, it will mess up your face! Haha. An easy solution is, when you are applying the liquid liner, have makeup remover and a qtip (or 2 or 3) handy. If you mess up, put a little makeup remover on the qtip and wipe away your mistake. Works for me every time. I make mistakes too.
