Makeover 1923: Stella (with Zaron & Wet n' Wild)

3 Dec 2012

I was in the office over night!
In the advertising industry this is not unheard of and is sometimes a rather frequent occurrence.

That aside, my sister was going out that morning and had earlier requested that I do her makeup. I had no choice but to get out my kit as soon as I stepped into the house at 6am on saturday morning.
October is breast cancer awareness month but I didn't get to do anything pink on the blog. Perhaps, that was why I reached for the vibrant pink colour in the Zaron Showstopper palette.

Black Opal Stick foundation in Beautiful Bronze
Sleek powders in Tan, Brown Velvet and Tropical Bronze
BM Pro red eyeshadow (as blush)
Bobbi Brown bronzing powder in Deep 4 (for contouring)
Bobbi Brown shimmer brick in Apricot
Zaron eyebrow powder
Zaron Showstopper palette - pink & bronze
Wet n Wild Confort Zone palette
Tara Orekelewa eye pencil & liquid liner
Her lips were a mixture of Mary Kay Hibiscus l/s on the outer perimeter, a Lancome pale pink l/s and a Jordana pale pink l/g
