Last Saturday I started the day with a make-up consultation at the salon with a blog reader / Instagram follower from Luleå! Always so honoring with long-distance customers ♥
She wanted to see an everyday make-up that lifts and brightens tired eyes as well as a natural base that covers redness without looking too made-up.
Here is the result:
Nice, is not it! :)
We started with a smoothing and moisturizing face primer as she has dry skin with a few lines, and then a semi-opaque gel foundation that sinks into the skin and becomes very natural and fine. Under the eyes and on small dots we have a thin concealer, and on the nose we also have a yellow powder that neutralizes redness (perfect even when she wants to be unmade up but just remove most of the redness).
With contouring and blush on it, her facial features were highlighted incredibly beautifully! We put the contour in the deep parts of the face (hairline, temples, under the cheekbones, under the jawbones) and on the sides of the nose and chin. We put highlighter under the eyebrows, in the middle of the face (middle of the forehead, bridge of the nose, cupid's bow and chin), and on the cheekbones.
We filled in the eyebrows with a very mild shade, and did not put a lot of make-up on the inner edges but made an even base on the underside of the eyebrows and above all filled in a lot at the highest point. It really gave a lift and made the whole brow more shapely. Finished with a brow gel as she had very long straws that wanted to live her own life and brushed them quite a bit upwards towards the highest point as well. A little "comb over-hairstyle" stuck on the eyebrows;)
For a make-up that lifts the gaze, I usually light up the underside, and put all the focus on the top of the eyes. We put a golden brown eyeshadow on the entire eyelid and over the globe line (so that it can be seen clearly and lift the eye even when she looks straight ahead), and then light in the corner of the eye and in the middle of the eyelid to liven up a little extra. Finished with lashliner (fringe marking) and mascara.
A natural lip color that fits well and does not need to be improved on the often, perfect everyday shade!

Hope you all got off to a good start to the new week, I really did! I had a really lazy day yesterday, lay in bed (which we moved into the living room in front of the wood stove haha) in soft pants and chilled basically all day. In addition to the hour I was in the bathtub with hair wrap and enzyme peeling;)
And today we have made important decisions before the new launch and the new website, and that is really the final sprint of it now, waaah! How fun!
Hugs are! ♥
