Théa-Fyed - Before and after

 Today I was inspired by the receptionist Cindy at Just Wax It who has done the same makeup since she was sixteen (she has adult children people...  Time for a Théa-fication!!!)  She is the sweetest woman, so full of life and love, and her makeup just didn't reflect that, so I sat her perky butt in my chair and got started!  It was so much fun, and so awesome to see the transformation.  Cindy has incredible blue eyes, and skin that makes me jealous, and I wanted to show her, and all you other pretty peeper-ed ladies out there, that the right products can really help to bring all this beauty out...  A common mistake amongst women is to skip out on contouring (i.e. the use of bronzer and highlighting) which can give you a one-dimensional look..  3D is the way to be!!  It can bring out your best features, and minimize any insecurities you may have...  Without further adieux let the transformation begin and show you how we went from Here:

Cindy Before Théa-fication
To Here:
Cindy After Théa-fication
First we took all of Cindy's makeup off, and started with a fresh face.  I will post pictures of all the products we used at the end of this blog, and just list them in the transformation photos:

After moisturizing, we added a base of MAC Face & Body Foundation
& Makeup Forever Concealer Cream Palette No 2 N12
I did a light dusting of MAC Studio Fix to set everything,
and give an extra layer of translucent coverage
Contouring time!  I added MAC Matte Bronzer,
MAC Blush in Peachykeen,
and some MAC Studio Finish Powder in Gold as a highlighter. 
For the eyes I blended MAC eyeshadow in Saddle in the crease and along the lower lash line,
I then blended MAC eyeshadow in Ricepaper in the inner corner of the eyelids, and along the upper lash line.
I Lined the upper lash line with MAC eyeliner in Teddy, and blended the line with MAC eyeshadow in Brown Down.  I also brought some of this Brown Down into the crease to deepen the eyes.
I shaped the brows with MAC eyeshadow in Charcoal Brown + an angled brush
Finish with 2 coats of L'Oréal's Voluminous Mascara in Blackest Black. 
A close-up of the eye...  Natural and blended
Finish off the look with a swipe of lip gloss.  I used NARS Turkish Delight as Cindy already has a lovely natural lip colour shade.
Another angle...  So gorgeous!!!
This was so much fun, and always so rewarding for me to show women how truly beautiful they are!  And for you product junkies, this is what I used in pictures:

  3. This is my favorite "transformation" yet!! She looks STUNNING!!!
    Her features really "pop" in the second photo. She looks so youthful.
    Best part....I HAVE all these products. Mwah-ah-ah! I will try this on myself.
    PS: still a bit sowee about not being able to see the video with the purple & bronze eye makeup.
