Makeup Application

I am not great at applying makeup. I love researching the best makeup, the key ingredients, the most efficient products...but, when it comes to applying it, I am too lazy to apply myself. That's why I love learning new tricks. A couple of months ago, I went to Sephora on a Saturday to pick up mascara (putting down Twilight book four "Breaking Dawn" for the trip) An employee there ended up playing with my makeup for about an hour. So fun.

Here are the results (I am just now uploading pictures from the last two months!) of her work. She used Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes palette, which I already have. She used DiorSkin Airflash foundation, and expertly used bronzer to slim my wide face.

I look so awkward in these, but didn't want to forget how she had applied everything. She even had me practice so that I could use the techniques.

I love the look of your makeup. It's so natural, yet it stands out. You have beautiful eyes, by the way. :}

Thanks SO much. I cannot seem to recreate it myself, but refer back to the picture all the time to try!
