|Leigh doing some major Consulting A La Hair...|
|And it's hilarious!|
Sephora was out of Kate's colour in Makeup Forever's HD Invisible Cover Foundation (harumph). But instead of giving up, we hit up MAC to see if they would have a good match for her skin, and turns out the Studio Fix Fluid foundation was the winner!! She also bought the best makeup brush ever for fluid foundation application, and some delicious new concealer from MUFE's HD line as well.
Then I made her wash her face and we started from scratch... First step, The Youth by Bliss moisturizer mixed in with a couple drops of Jojoba Oil; that Calgary weather has sucked the moisture out of her skin! And then the Double Layer Magic began!
Oh man I love makeovers so so much!!!! Perhaps on Day 2 of her visit I will force her to buy a horse and carriage because that seems like it would be stinky fun - Horse poops are gross.
|Necessary, Delicious Purchases|
After getting home, the makeover REALLY began!!! I gave her the full Kayo By Théa Full Monty treatment, as well as a makeup lesson, and DAMN did she look Gorgeous!! Some step-by-step pics and the transformation follow...
