One of my good friends, Marie, asked me if I could do her makeup on her recital. And of course, I said yes! So I'd just like to share with you her before and after pic.

As you will notice, she's not wearing any lipstick or lipgloss, because she's a bassoon player and lip products just get in the way. Likewise, I don't use any lip products also while playing (except maybe for a lip and cheek tint).

So here it is! I'll try to remember all the stuff I used on her. Pardon some discrepancies on the before and after pic. The before pic was only taken by a camera phone, while the after pic was taken on a DSLR.

crissy, the orange concealer is from a graftobian concealer wheel. during my time in basement academy, they were selling it. i'm not sure if they still have now though.
