This is the first of what I’m hoping is going to be a regular series from now on. Every week or so, I’ll find a willing
victi … er … volunteer, and invite them to the Get Lippie HQ, for a beauty consultation and make over. As the sessions won’t be beginning for a few days, I hope you’ll forgive me for using an oldie – but a goodie – to start.
On the day, Seona wanted a natural, but visible make up. Eschewing the traditional “bridal pastels” so many brides are forced to think are obligatory on their big day, we decided to go with a lightly smokey eye, and a glossy subtly red lip.
Seona has amazing eyes, they’re blue, but with beautiful yellow speckles in them, and I wanted to make these her main feature. So, after sorting out her base (Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturising Balm in Light), then powdering it down, I concentrated on using golds, browns and bronzes to make the most of her beautiful eyes:
So there you go, my handiwork in action. Further makeovers will have slightly more focus on how I go about creating the look itself (and fewer shots of the back of my head), but this was one of the most enjoyable days of my career so far, and I wanted to share it with everyone.
