~ Everyday Makeup, Mature ~

June 26, 2009

This look was done today for a 56 year young model who complained of oily skin, redness, some deep lines and large pores. We began with some talk about basic skin care and then prepped the face with Nuetrogena oil-free moisturizer  and prepped the lips with Everyday Minerals lip balm in lavender. We waited about 10 minutes before applying anything else to give the products a chance to really set in.

Since the model does not usually wear makeup , we used this time to talk about everything from how to choose foundation and the different types (gel, cream, powder, liquid) as well as the purpose of primers, how to choose the best colors and choosing a feature to focus the look around. In this case, we chose the eyes and opted for a balanced everyday look.

The final result was an even skin tone, and a very safe everyday look for someone not used to wearing makeup and something she could easily do herself.
