Meet Julie. She's naturally stunning, so I felt she didn't need much makeup.

Makeup Before and After

To create this look, I used: 

1) Smashbox Photofinish Primer

Primer helps makeup stay through out the day, and preps the skin for makeup- making it more smooth! I find most primers very similar- a drugstore primer will likely do just a well as a more expensive brand like Smashbox! 

2) Mac Paint Pot in Painterly all over the eyes, followed by Mac All That Glitters. 

Paint pots primer the eye so shadow colors really pop. Paint pots lock shadow on so they last SO LONG! I like Painterly and Soft Ochre. 

3) Ardelle Individual Lashes in Short Black

Individual lashes are so easy to apply yourself, and give a more natural, volumous look than strip lashes. You can buy these at Rexall and Wal-Mart (not Shopper's). 

5) Mac Studio Fix Fluid in NC20

I use Mac Studio Fix Fluid on most of my clients because it's full coverage and looks great in photos. It's not moisturizing, or excessively long lasting (a more dry formula like Mac Pro Long Wear). If you buy this for yourself, remember you only need a tiny drop. Use a damp beauty blender for most natural results, like Julie's! 

6) Mac Faux on the lips, topped with Mac Ample Pink

Okay, Mac Faux... beautiful and easy to wear. A must.
