Before and After Glamour

This weekend my beautiful brave girlfriend let me do a before and after shot of her. I wanted to try something light and fresh on her as I had already done quite a dark look on her for a photoshoot in the past .I did this black and white shoot while I was in school and she did an awesome job posing and working the makeup and hair I did.



Anyways so this time I did the total opposite and went super light and pretty. This is what I came up with, a light lid with a medium toned brown crease. I personally love how big her eyes look there is just something stunning about them.

I added a mid tone brown gel liner and lots of mascara to finish off the look.



I used my 28 color neutral palette from CoastalScents.com along with a white Sephora brand shadow I got recently and Face Atelier foundation & lip glaze.



What do you guys think?
I was really pleased with how it came out but it was made easy by the beautiful canvas I had to work with!

Wow, looks great. I love the 28 neutral palette. It is worth it even if you just use it for peoples eyebrows, there is something for everyone in it

Awesome job Far!!! I like that you posted the black and white photos along with the new look - it shows just how makeup can totally change a person's image! The new look is beautiful - I like that you used brown liner, it really softens the eyes :)
