I gave my mum a makeover...

I have always been close with my mum, and grew up playing around with her hair and doing her makeup. Today, she asked me to do her makeup and I this is what I came up with. I tried to stick to a 'natural' theme. *Claps* for my mum for allowing me to post her 'Before' picture with NO makeup. My mum looks young anyway, but I really feel the makeup I did, just made her look even younger.



To a moisturised face I applied...
  • Bourjois 10hr sleep effect foundation, YSL Touche Eclat concealer under the eyes and to highlight the face, and I dusted Mac's sheer mystery powder to set. (Image 1. shows what her face looked like at this stage.)
I then applied....
  • The taupe e/s from Nars 'Madrague duo' to her crease, and the vanilla e/s to the entire lid from the same duo. I used Eyeko's line & shine, black glitter pencil to tightline and also applied to the waterline.
  • Benefit's Eyebright to the inner corners of the eye. Max factor lash extension mascara and I groomed her brows with Mac's clear brow gel, and filled in any sparse areas.
  • For her cheeks I used Nars 'Orgasm' as blush, Too faced bronzer from the 'Starlette' palette and MeMeMe gold cream to highlight her cheekbones.
  • On her lips I used the nude/peach shade also from the 'Starlette' palette from Too faced, and I applied the silverish colour on the middle parts of her lips to help them look fuller. I also used a lipliner by Prestige called 'Silk' to neatly line her lips. (Image 2. shows what her face looked like after this stage.)



My mum is a very cheerful person, and can see the funny side of EVERYTHING.



My mum felt the need to apply a bright lipstick, but I stopped her, I was like 'no, this is a natural look' but, then she asked to have winged eyeliner... I couldn't refuse. Here's what it looked like.



I asked my mum what her secret to looking so young was, and this is what she said:

"I regularly do facial yoga/exercises, I really believe it's helped to lift my eyes. I do it every morning for different parts of my face and highly recommend it. I only wear foundation on very special occasions. Cleanse, tone and moisturise, wear SPF. Stay positive, and don't stress!!"

Well, lets hope I look like that at 44, *praying it's genetics* :)

What anti aging tips do you have?

What a fun post - your mom looks gorgeous - you can see where you got your looks from! In the photos with winged eyeliner, her eyes really resemble yours.

The facial yoga is really interesting - I do facial exercises as prevention - and I do think there is a lot behind this. It helps you keep your looks without fillers or surgery :-)
