10,000x prettier after you got done with her. She can wear all that sparkle because she's 18. Great choices.

Especially loved the blue in the inner corners of her eyes.

I love what you did--especially with the cheeks and the eyes.

If I could have you do my makeup I would wear some everyday.

I consider you to have more makeup knowledge than I, so I'm wondering why you used shimmer makeup on her nose and forehead?

Personally I would have only done the cheeks.

I'm not trying to be critical. Its very pretty, just an observation.

I can't offer any helpful criticism, because I struggle just to figure out my own face. I think the make-up looks great.
Mostly I just wanted to say her skin is amazing. She's very pretty.

On the tip of her nose? I think that is oil peaking through. I think I mightve dusted a lil shimmer on the bridge of her nose. Maybe I accidentally got some elsewhere too.

Ya, I thought it' was shimmer powder that was looking oily. Maybe its, just shine and the camera picked it up.

Looks nice. I don't like skin looking too matte either.

She is very pretty! I can hardly tell that she is wearing so much makeup. It looks like you applied it with a very light hand. But I guess that's the ideal look, right?

You did an amazing job.

For the price, it's not bad at all! Shadows seem to blend well over ELF primer and I haven't noticed excessive creasing. But I wouldn't use it on a hot/humid summer day with my oily skin.

TNB, what did you do to her eyebrows? They look amazing--such an improvement! She's gorgeous with or without makeup, but I love what you've done with her. It's somehow dramatic but natural at the same time.

Thank you! I applied brown and black e/s (Coastal Scents) with a moistened angled brush. After it dried, I brushed the color through. Voila!
