Makeup Session: Brandace

I look at makeup artistry like a form of art.  And with any type of art, one needs to continually work with their medium (or mediums) to get better, and to grow. Thats what these "makeup session" posts will be all about - good ol practice ... with a side of fun! Thank goodness for awesome girlfriends who are always game to let me try anything!

For this makeup session I didn't set any rules, so my friend Brandace was free to ask me for whatever she wanted.  She showed me pictures of makeup that she liked - to let me know the colors she wanted to try - then before I knew it, we were off! I started with a daytime version of the makeup (top left and close up to the right), then moved it to nighttime (all other images) - with a darker smokey eye.  She liked it so much that she headed out for a night on the town!

Gorgeous face, Brandace! Thanks for letting me work with you - this session was so much fun!
