Makeover: Sam

By Get Lippie

Two weeks ago, when I did my makeover on Rebecca from le Salon de Beaute, she brought along her friend Sam for a makeover too.  It was lovely to meet them both, and I was really happy to get the opportunity to makeover two such lovely women.
Meet Sam:
1 Sam
Sam  has amazing bone structure, and beautiful glowing skin.  She spends a lot of time outdoors, and wanted a clean and simple look that complemented her colouring. 
As always, we started with the base, and this time we used Benefit Playstick foundation in Jax:

For a lovely, sophisticated, but not too intimidating look, I always like to dig out my Bobbi Brown Chocolate palette, I thought the differing shades of chocolate brown, and champagne would be a good match for the kind of look Sam was going for.  Initially I covered the eyelid in a shimmering apricot shade, then added a darker colour in the crease:

I then went on to add a slight bit of definition with the expresso shade in the palette, and added some mascara:

I added a gentle flush of colour on the cheeks with Cargo’s Illuminator in Wind, and added a little slick of Bare Escentuals lipgloss in Caramel:
