Who doesn’t love a makeover?

1 Sep

THE MISSION: Out with the old and in with the new! But on a budget please!

That’s exactly what I did with Shauna, owner of Mackenzie Image Consulting. Oh the fun we had! Here was the plan:

1. Makeup Bag Makeover

2. Makeup Shopping on a Budget

3. Consultation and Makeovers!

I love rummaging through makeup bags…I get this excited rush as I dig through the colors. Its the same excitement I’d get when I was young tearing open a present. I start sifting, frantically looking for inspiration. My gut tells me what to toss and what is absolutely magnificent, we must keep! I find a dark chocolatey-taupe that would make Shauna’s beautiful gold/green eyes pop! That goes in one pile…we’ll call that “the pile of wonderfulness”. Then…there’s the other pile. “Toss it, toss it all” Shauna exclaims! She was the absolute perfect candidate. Totally open for something new, and excited for the fun to come!

After the purge, we went makeup shopping! We got three eye shadow looks, two blushes, a concealer, mascara, eyeliner and eyelash curler inserts…all for around $60. We can thank Revlon, L’oreal, CoverGirl and Wet n Wild for some fantastic colors at very reasonable prices.

After using a mineral powder that Shauna already owned, along with some concealer we purchased, we tried out these looks!

Look #1: Eggplant purples on the eyes with a plum cheek and a gorgeous mauve gloss that Shauna already owned.

Look #2: I was just dying to enhance Shauna’s eyes, so we grabbed some olive green and a deep yellow gold to go with a peach on her cheeks and a very pretty transparent orange/peach gloss that she also already owned.

Look#3: Lastly we used that lovely chocolatey/taupe color that we kept, mixed with some neutral peach shadows that we purchased for her eyes. Paired with the orange/peach gloss and peach cheek, she was a put-together stunning beauty. See the before and afters below!

Check out some more pics and two great posts from Shauna’s perspective:
