    10,000x prettier after you got done with her. She can wear all that sparkle because she's 18. Great choices.

    Especially loved the blue in the inner corners of her eyes.

    I love what you did--especially with the cheeks and the eyes.

    If I could have you do my makeup I would wear some everyday.

    I consider you to have more makeup knowledge than I, so I'm wondering why you used shimmer makeup on her nose and forehead?

    Personally I would have only done the cheeks.

    I'm not trying to be critical. Its very pretty, just an observation.

    I can't offer any helpful criticism, because I struggle just to figure out my own face. I think the make-up looks great.
    Mostly I just wanted to say her skin is amazing. She's very pretty.

    On the tip of her nose? I think that is oil peaking through. I think I mightve dusted a lil shimmer on the bridge of her nose. Maybe I accidentally got some elsewhere too.

    Ya, I thought it' was shimmer powder that was looking oily. Maybe its, just shine and the camera picked it up.

    Looks nice. I don't like skin looking too matte either.

    She is very pretty! I can hardly tell that she is wearing so much makeup. It looks like you applied it with a very light hand. But I guess that's the ideal look, right? ;-)

    You did an amazing job.

    I also love her eyes.

    How do you like ELF primer?
    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

    For the price, it's not bad at all! Shadows seem to blend well over ELF primer and I haven't noticed excessive creasing. But I wouldn't use it on a hot/humid summer day with my oily skin.

    TNB, what did you do to her eyebrows? They look amazing--such an improvement! She's gorgeous with or without makeup, but I love what you've done with her. It's somehow dramatic but natural at the same time.
    In search of a lost signature...

    Thank you! I applied brown and black e/s (Coastal Scents) with a moistened angled brush. After it dried, I brushed the color through. Voila!
