Makeup Transformation | Before & After

I love wearing makeup and playing with new looks and new products. One of my favorite things to do is give people makeovers. I wanted to share with you guys a makeover I did recently on my good friend Tess.

We were just playing around with makeup and seeing what the outcome would be. While I applied her makeup I was giving her tips and tricks for applying makeup that will make it super easy and a fun experience to do whenever she wants to.

A lot of people are sort of afraid of putting makeup on, and never really give it a chance. Makeup is supposed to enhance and beautify the features you already have, and it can also be used to hide or change features that you don't particularly like too much. The great thing about makeup is that it washed right off. I love doing all kinds of crazy makeup because I know that when I take it off, I will be able to do something completely different next time.

Don't be afraid of playing with makeup. The more you practice and use different products the better you will get. Just remember to have fun. It's not about anyone else. It's about doing what you want to do and being happy while doing it. If someone has a problem with that, then they can keep it to themselves.
Just be happy in the skin you're in, and worry about making yourself happy.

Here is the before and after shot of Tess. I loved the way it turned out. I decided to go with a flawless face. We covered up her redness and a few spots. I also did some light contouring and highlighting with creams and powders, but it doesn't look too overdone and out of this world.

For the eyes, I wanted to go a little dark and sexy. So I gave her a brown smoky eye and a wing liner, I also applied some false lashes and finished the look with pretty peach cheeks and a nude pink lip color.

I had so much fun with this makeover, I will be doing more of these soon. I will also try to film these sort of videos and post it on my channel:
