Brilliant Brows.

Be sure to twease any strays. 

Fill in to create the perfect brow shape.

I like to use an angled brush and a matching dark brown eye shadow. 

Excellent Eyes.

Using a waterproof gel pencil, line close to the lash line on the top and bottom.

For a luxurious look and natural feel, I recommend individual lashes. 

Work from one side to the other to create a symmetric look. 

Carefully attach with a small drop of glue.


Luscious Lips.

Begin first by exfoliating and moisturizing lips.

Pay special attention to lining lips to create the perfect shape.

Add gloss for shine.

Creative Curls.

Apply a bodifying mousse and blow dry. 

Spray each section with a heat protecting spray before wrapping on a 1” texture wand.

Spray Shine.

Once on set it is always a good idea to mist with a working spray. 

This will add touchable body and texture.
