Makeover: Michelle (part 2)


I love playing around with makeup on myself but also on other! I enjoy just hanging out with friends and doing their makeup. Especially the ones that don't really wear a lot of makeup because the the transformation is a lot more noticeable. But most of all, I love making them feel beautiful (not that they aren't without makeup!).

Last week, I did another makeover on my friend Michelle. I did one last year which you can check out here.

Here is the before picture (and thank you Michelle for letting me post this ;) )

And here she is again, with makeup this time:

One more for fun :) :

Both pictures together:

What did I use?

- Revlon Colorstay for normal/dry skin in 180 Sand Beige
- MAC Select Cover-up in NW20
- MAC Blot Powder Pressed in Medium
- MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Medium Dark
- MAC Dame blush
- ELF Shimmering Facial Whip in Golden Peach

- NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in 141 Silver Plum

For the eyes, I recreated the look on myself so I could take a close-up picture (click picture for a larger view!):

I used:

- Urban Decay Primer Potion Original: applied on the lid all the way up to the brow with my finger
- MAC Brun: to fill in my brows, with an angled bush (MAC 268). (I mixed Wedge with a little bit of Groundcover for Michelle's brows, I need to buy Omega for blondes!)
- MAC Vanilla: as a browbone highlight, applied with a flat shader brush (MAC 239)
- MAC Vintage Selection paintpot (LE: Cham-Pale collection): applied on the lid and inner corner with a flat shader brush (MAC 239)
- MAC Quarry and Shale: mixed both and applied in the crease with a blending brush (MAC 217)
- MAC Sketch: smudged along the upper lashline and the outer 1/4th of the lower lashline with a pencil brush (MAC 219)
- L'Oreal Lineur Intense: made a winged liner on the upper lashline
Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara: few coats on the top lashes, one coat on bottom lashes.

We had fun and she liked the look so everyone was happy :).

Thanks for reading and until next time!

Up next: some glitter nail art!



  1. Total transformation, still just as beautiful. Her skin looks beautiful, well done!

  2. Wow, lovely makeover! Her skin looks so flawless! Really - great done!

    Your makeup is also perfect, I really love your brows! Perfectly shaped <3

  3. Thank you! Well her skin is pretty flawless, so I didn't have to do much :) And I'm lucky with my brows, they're pretty easy to work with.
