Makeover Extravaganza


Attention readers!!
We have fulfilled another makeover fantasy.
This one stars Auburn, the lucky winner of our fab giveaway!

She was such a peach to work with, we all hit it off immediately! Practically bff.

To start with, Auburn was super stylish and sassy and she really wanted a hairstyle to match.She came in with a blunt one length cut, and color on the brink of fade-central. She wanted to take her hair to a dreamy dark level with some coppery dimension-savvy highlights. Ala Leighton Meester (love her). Blair, what would we do without your inspriation? We gave her some long layers seeing as how she wanted to keep the length. This only further showcased her multi-dimensional 'do.

Next was the makeup. We looked through Auburn's collection of her daily-use cosmetics to help her understand what does and doesn't work for her particular features. After the makeup overhaul, Auburn requested natural and golden makeup for her busy day to day routine. After evening out her skin tone with a tinted moisturizer, sweeping on some peachy-coral blush, we put our focus on Auburn's gorgeous blue-green eyes. We used a shimmery peach on her lid, highlighted with a vanilla shade, and used a orange-based brown for her crease and liner to bring out the flecks of turquoise in her eyes. To put the finishing touch, we added two coats of thickening mascara and false lashes to the ends of her lash line. We topped it all off with a touch of peach gloss.
We also rewarded Auburn's blog dedication with a MAC goodie bag!!





Are you in suspense yet?





Voila!!!

Gorgeous!!! She is a very pretty girl naturally. If she's not wearing makeup in that before picture than she is lucky to have that skin! Looks flawless. You did a great job with her hair and makeup to bring out her gorgeous features.

Both of you two look so pretty in that last picture too. The outside lighting is so charming. It looks so warm down there!
