Makeover Monday With Maria



Hello, All! It’s MAKEOVER MONDAY!!! Woot, woot!  This week’s makeover is with Maria!




Maria is a busy wife, mother and Graphic Designer who enjoys makeup, but would like to know more about how to use it.  Her go to is usually mascara, earth toned shadows with a dark mahogany lip, but I wanted to take her slightly away from the usual.  I gave this busy lady a glamorous look by playing up her beautiful dark, Greek eyes and I introduced her to one of my favorite nude lipstick colors for her lips.  Maria’s skin has a cool, olive undertone and I neutralized that coolness by using a warm foundation base.


 I did her makeup for her wedding and had to follow HER rules, but THIS time I got my way!! FINALLY!!! YESSSSSSSSS!

I played up the dark features of her eyes, neutralized her cool skin tone, slightly contoured her cheeks with a bronzer, highlighted with a cool champagne color, slathered on that sexy nude for her lips and applied some lashes.  She was born with the most AMAZING curls and all I did was fluff it a tad.  That’s it! All products used will be listed below!

Maria is a freelance Graphic Designer and you can check out her website here.
