The Working Face: Nora

Posted on September 6, 2012

Nora came to me through a long time client, Kate to do the Working Face (far and way my most popular makeup service).  She just went back to work after having a second little one and was looking to *finally* learn some basic makeup tricks.  By her own admission, her makeup routine was a small amount of shadow (whichever color she reached for), mascara on the tips (we would need to change that.  Roots, baby, roots!) and some concealer (she had the right product, but the wrong shade).  We met at the mecca Barney’s, which is my makeup home away from makeup home, and chose a few products that would bring out her gorgeous green eyes and natural rosy cheeks.  But the trick is with a full time job and two little ones this routine had to be under five minutes.  She was terrified of the lash curler, positive she wouldn’t be able to use liner and overall convinced this was going to be too hard.  WRONG NORA!  She was a champ and picked it up like an ol’ pro.  (Psst, if your finance job doesn’t work out ya wanna help me with some weddings?)

The stars of this show were, among other things, Lovejoy blush, Midnight Sun shadow, and this STUNNING new little tidbit from Kevyn Aucoin.

Doing models is fun.  Doing shoots is exciting.  But helping real, everyday women look and feel their best is the most rewarding.

So, come on and book your appointment today ladies!
