Makeover: Going to Hollywood

Bethany is an aspiring actress who is moving from the Boston area to California to pursue her dreams of becoming an actress.

How I took her from her makeup-free look to her "after" look: I applied a moisturizing and plumping serum to prep her skin and let it set. I hid darkness around her eyes with a peach-toned concealer. A hydrating foundation was applied all over. Contouring powder was applied under her cheekbones, along the sides of her nose, and underneath the tip. A highlighter was applied above the cheekbones. Her eyes, which are close-set, were widened by applying liner with an emphasis on the outer area. Her eyes were emphasized with a neutral base, then I applied a pink-toned, shimmery shadow to the inner corners. Her lashes were played up with a lengthening mascara and falsies applied at the outer edges.
