Before & Afters HAC Makeup

makeover monday – Kisten

Today’s makeover is of my good friend Kisten. She is such a fun and energetic woman! We used to waitress together and she could always work circles around me:) She’s a blast and conversation is always flowing when she’s around! Plus she’s a total babe!

The first thing I did with Kisten was some exfoliation and moisture! We live in a desert climate and SOOO many of the faces I work on are dehydrated. When skin is dry and flaky 9 times out of 10 foundation is only going to draw attention to that so its not a fix for makeup to tackle. I used my favorite exfoliator (Cure – post about it here) to banish any of the dead skin for the flakiness and also so the moisture could penetrate. Then I massaged in the IT Cosmetics Confidence Cream. I love how soft and silky it makes the skin. Just doing that alone made her look so refreshed and vibrant!

Next I shaped her brows.  I wanted to lift her arch up so she’d have a little more space on the lid to show of her gorgeous eyes and it would also brighten her expression. I filled them with the Colour Pop brow pencil in bangin’ brunette. It’s tiny enough I can create little teeny hair strokes which makes them look more natural.

I also chose a bright copper/gold eyeshadow to bring out her green eyes, using a black liquid liner on the lip lash line to make them pop.

On her lips I lines them softly with NYX Taupe and then filled them with a flush pink gloss.

For her foundation/contouring I used Maskcara IIID in stone (contour) + sunlit (highlight) + dahlia (blush) + pearl (illuminator) 

Hope you love it!

    she looks great, a natural beauty! I would love to know more about the products you like for a dry climate. I live in southwest Colorado and its soooooo dang dry here! I feel like I have to put 10 layers of moisturizer on my face every morning. And for my body? NOTHING WORKS! I’m always so dry!!! Please share!

    I don’t get why you make eyebrows look so harsh, unnatural, and drawn CLOSE together all the time. Eyebrow defining and shaping is great to do, but…

      I agree, they look very artificial and way too close. Good to give her a little arch, but now brows look too dark, hard and fake. Like a tattoo.

    Love the gloss and the cheek color (and of course, her hair is amazing!), but I feel like the makeover looks a little harsh and actually ages her. I actually prefer the before.

    She’s beautiful. And, if the makeover is not to your liking, why comment? Go read someone else that does things how you like it! Sorry Cara, I know you know how to ignore things, or at least I hope you do.

    Can we talk about how she looks like a brunette Jennifer Aniston in the After photo?! Just beautiful. I’m always curious how your models feel about the After looks. Did she like her look? She looks fresh-faced and the eye shape is so flattering.
