glamOh session: Esther MU+H

August 17, 2009
Makeup consultation/tutorial + hairstyling: Esther

Esther and I originally met for a makeup session + tutorial. The majority of makeup we used was her own so she could learn how to utilize them on a daily basis.

Esther’s daily makeup regimen usually includes light foundation/powder, eyebrow pencil, blush, lip gloss, and eyeliner.

We added in eye shadows and lip color, while taking everything else up a few notches.

We used a combination of products to make her skin even toned with a balance of matte/sheen for a healthy glow. The multi-tasking hero of this look was Benefit’s High Beam illuminator.

Contour/Highlight – We worked on contouring and highlighting areas like the cheeks, nose, and lips.

Eyes – We worked on a smokey eye technique with every day neutral-toned colors and then incorporated grey/black tones from a Chanel quad to add a dramatic effect.

Instead of using a thick black liquid eyeliner to define the eyes, we used dark powders and pencil eyeliners for a softer effect.

Hair – After the makeup was finished, we decided that she HAD to have styled hair to match her glam look. I transformed her usually long, straight hair into a mane of volume and sexy waves.

Esther has great face structure and we merely brought them out with the right colors. She left the session feeling like a high fashion model.
