Today, I did makeup for a client who was participating in a dance/cheerleading event. The team's theme colors were blue and white and so I thought it would be fun to incorporate those colors into her look. I usually work with more neutral colors, so getting to throw some color in there was really exciting for me!
To ensure the longevity of her makeup while she danced, I made sure to use products with primers, setting powders and water-proof formulas.
To create perfect, yet natural and glowing skin, I contoured and highlighted her face using liquid and cream products. Since I wanted the focus to be on the eyes, I used a lip-color that matched the natural pinky-mauve shade of her lips and mixed two blushes in order to achieve a similar flattering color.
