Ok, first things first, my girl Marall is gorgeous as is (and has some of the most beautiful curls ever!!!! whole another topic:) So this is not a make over of any sort as she simply does not need one but we were just being girls and I wanted to do her make up which she was kind enough to let me! Lol I can do anything on my face but I don’t do other people’s make up and it’s nerve wrecking so we went with something simple and natural and I really love how it turned out so we will definitely be doing it again, something more bold next time!
Marall and I have been friends since we were 15!!! She is one of the first friends I made when I moved to Canada. I used to do my friends’ make up when we were younger and used to go clubbing but that was centuries ago! lol
For the first time doing her make up, I wanted to do a very natural look with plenty of nude and warm tones. I wanted to keep it simple and light and just accentuate her natural beauty.
L’Oreal true match foundation on her face followed by the Maybelline Dream Lumi Highlighting Concelear and Maybelline Dream Wonder Powder to contour.
I added only a touch of MAC’s Warm Soul to her cheek bones and completed the face by applying the Maybelline Face Studio Master Hi-Light lightly all over to give it a natural subtle glow.
On her eyes, I used a nude toned shadow from the NYX Dream Cather’s palette and on the outer corners blended the dark brown shadow from the Physician’s Forumal shimmering strips palette.
I did not eyeliner her eyes as I wanted to give a smudgy smokey look so I outlined her upper and lower lash line with a black shadow.
And of course, layers of mascara to make it pop!
On her lips, I used MAC’s Japanese Maple nude and NYX xtreme lip creame in Natural.
I can’t wait to do more looks and thank you Marall for lending me your face ahaha!!!
