Hi, Natalie. Welcome to (Kamara?) Honor of Make-up and Skin Care Studio. We're going to make over your make-up bag today. Yes, I'm very excited. I brought it with me. Yes. Let's see what we have here. So tell me Natalie, is this something that you used just for touch-ups? This is my like Monday thru Friday what I'm wearing to work everyday I think. So I start out with foundation and then I put on blush, usually some eye shadow, I love things that are like to have gold flex in them so I usually wear some kind of gold eye shadow and then black eye liner and then black mascara. Well let's see what we can do to enhance this selection of goodies and maybe update some of the things that you're doing. So Natalie we have in-front of us here your make-up collection and I have to say you've got really great basics. What we can improve on is your eye make-up, some contour for the cheek area and update your lipstick. Let's start with your eye make-up. We're gonna start out with the primer, and either with a sponge or your finger we're going to apply this all over the lid to the brow. This gonna keep your shadow looking very smooth and even on the eye area. After the primer is on from lid all the way to the brow, we're going to set it with the mutual base shadow and an eye shadow of shading brush. We can then add a little bit of your shimmer and contour for the eye. I love the gold that you have here. We can take the gold back to the lid. Now to add a little more contour, this were gonna take using your very sheer silvery black. We're going to go back and forth, almost like you're thickening where your liner would be. And then pushing that right into the (crease?), following the shape and contour of your eye. What I like to do with liquid liner, to make it look a little smoother and to take an eye liner brush and then go back to your shimmery black eye shadow powder and go right on top of the liquid with the eye shadow powder. Let's see on first contour, the cheek area with a very sheer bronzer and a fan brush. So right from the middle of the ear going towards the nose so we can even sweep that right around the side of the nose and what's left on the brush follow right along the hair line and jaw line. I would never thought of using like something like that, if I saw it on the store just 'cause I'm fair so it's really helpful. Well this is a very sheer, very light bronzer. With your blush you wanna now go a little bit higher than you were going. So we're going to go right with, right on top of the cheek bone. Never enough mascara right? Right. So are you a lip liner person? I'm not, I've never used it before. The lip liner is going to bring out the shape of the mouth as well as how to keep your lipstick staying on longer. So now that we've done the lip liner, let's give you a more neutral option that you can wear. I have a very pretty brown base with a touch of pink that just works with everything, and it won't fight with the strong eye. You look really great, how do you feel? I feel beautiful. Thank you so much.
