The best eyebrows ever! Also, I was reading the makeup tips for this spring and her lips say it all. Nude color lips and lots of focus on the eyes. I like the color of her lips - no gloss is something I will have to get used to, but LET'S GET READY FOR SPRING!!

Ahh. . . Whitters. She is beautiful. As you can see Whit has a very symmetrical face. Which, I learned, it has been proven the more symmetrical your features are the prettier you are. Just take a look at Cindy Crawford - lots of symmetry there! Anyway, Whit has great eyes - seems like eyes are always my focus - but I think eyes should be your main focus. Whit - I can't remember if we put fake eyelashes on you or not - can you? She looked so pretty! More pics soon!
Here is an interesting link to read about symmetry!

See the side bar for info on these babies! Love them, love them, love them! Maybelline.com to find the perfect colors for you!
The lip pencil at the top is beyond awesome. It is from Merle Norman - one side is the liner and the other is the lipstick - but it is not heavy like an actual lipstick - LOVE IT! The eyeshadow is also Merle Norman - pretty much anything you get there will be worth the money. The foundation is Bare Minerals - love the stuff. You get no DREADFULLY UGLY color lines on your jaw - it blends into your skin. There is nothing worse than a foundation that doesn't match your face. If you don't need foundation - don't wear it! Wear cover-up and blush. Sounds scary if you have used foundation for a long time, but just try it. If you don't like that look, try the Bare Minerals - I promise it has just as much cover as a liquid, but blends so much better and is good for you skin. TRY NOT to buy your foundation at a supermarket or drug store. I buy most of my supplies from wally's - but NEVER foundation. Go to the mall and have a professional match your skin. Make sure it looks natural - thick foundation is so 80's! Okay . . . moving on! I love juicy tubes from lancome - but you can get just as good gloss at wally's - it is
CoverGirl WetSlicks and my favorite color is FIG - can't go wrong. Last, but not least is the best mascara on plant earth - VOLUMINOUS! LOVE IT!

Just perfect . . .
Thanks for the comment Roxann! Fake eyelashes come in so many varieties. They make really cheap ones and really expensive ones. In fact, you can even get eyelash extensions! An estitition carefully glues them separately on your lid and they look awesome. Chris's cousin has them and look really natural. So, when it comes to wearing them, my opinion is to try them out! They are GREAT for pictures - even if you already have long or thick eyelashes - they add to the depth of your eye and open them up for the camera. Honestly, I have used almost all of them - even the expensive ones and I like the cheap ones the best. I get mine at good ol' wally's! They are really easy to apply and the package comes with everything you need. Of course, you can be excessive (i.e. the ones you see at Halloween) but if you go with the normal ones, they do wonders! If you are wanting to look HOT, try 'em - I think you will like them!

I wish I could make this picture bigger. More of Em! I put fake eyelashes on her for her engagement pictures - I love them! We back combed her hair and used lots of pomade!

I loved to do Mad's makeup. You can see my cute little makeup assistant sitting on her lap! Mad has really beautiful eyes so that was my focus. I love her dark hair and the way it makes her eyes "pop". I did a plum color on her eyes and followed her around and glossed her lips all night! What beautiful girls!

There are 3 sections to your eye. I like this picture because it shows the 3 different sections. A lot of time you see just a big swipe of one color, which is fine - but for dressing up it is fun to play around!

Em has really great eyes and really great cheek bones. Her hair was fun to do! I just followed her around all day re-applying lip gloss. You can see her eyebrows are darker than her hair. That is a best kept secret! Use a shade lighter than your hair and fill your eyebrows in. It completely changes the look of your eyes and adds to your face!

I have to say - I have been so lucky to be able to work on such beautiful girls! Look how pretty she looks. We did her hair - she has a lot of it! We flat ironed it and there was a lot of back combing (she had to drive all the way back to Logan!) Kelsie's best feature is her eyes. They are shaped perfect and they are deep brown. You usually see girls with her color of eyes have brown hair - so the contrast of her natural coloring is awesome. I totally focused on her eyes and stuck with neutral colors - but darkened the outer corner. I used some plums, browns and deep green. I rarely use lipstick, so she is all gloss on her lips!
