Get Your Face On Party...

I thought this would be a fun one. Beth is hosting a before and after makeover party. I think makeovers are so fun that I decided to link up :)

Before: {my three year old took this candid photo}
Sometimes I even scare myself...

After (sorry I don't have a clearer picture):

Muuuch better!

And a happier but more grainy, me:

Cleanser and Moisturizer: Cetaphil

Foundation: Mary Kay Cream foundation (heavy coverage for the pictures)

Eyeliner: Mary Kay Black Eyeliner Crayon (winged out on the upper and smudged, smudged, smudged! I also lined my water line.)

Eyeshadow: Ulta Holiday Blockbuster kit-- skin tone color all over, silver in the crease, black in the outer "v" and along the lower lashes

Mascara: Maybelline Stilleto lots and lots of mascara

Eyelashes curled

Cheeks: Loreal HIP creme blush rubbed onto the apples of my cheeks

Contour: {for photos} a brown eyeshadow brushed lightly in the area below the cheekbone to create definition

Lips: Dollar Tree cheapo nude liner over entire lip, clear loreal gloss on top

This is more makeup than I normally wear but I was preparing for a photoshoot wear my husband wanted a dark {I call it my "drugged out look} theme. If you'd like to see the short video that my husband was using this picture for, click on the photo below. Be sure to turn up your speakers!

Hi all, thanks for the comments. Makeup sure helps a lot doesn't it! That first picture makes me laugh :) I was on skype with my mom the other day and I had just woken up. My mom said, "No one would ever believe the girl that I'm looking at is the same girl in the modeling pictures." Leave it to my mom to put it succinctly!
