So Amy we're gonna do a natural makeover on you. I think you got a great foundation for being a natural beauty and I'm sure like you said you don't really wear makeup so much.

I don't.

So I'm just gonna do a few quick little things that's just gonna give you a oomph. I know that's easy to do yourself on any situation. I think we'll start with skin. We'll just pull your hair back and get that out of the way, and what we're gonna do is use a foundation lightly over your face after you've moisturized is best, but if you're in the summer you don't need to put the moisturizer on. Perhaps use an SPF. I'm using a foundation brush and the color that's not too white. Even though you have a pale complexion, I'm quickly just blending in to even out your skin tone, taking out some of the red on your chin and trying to lightly cover a few of these little blemishes that you have here. Do you want to fix this one?

And my freckles.

Freckles too. This is a little bit more intense than say a tinted moisturizer but it's not heavy like your old grandmother's foundation. This is gonna totally look to your boyfriend like you have no foundation on, but to you your freckles are gonna be a little less and basically all I've done is on the middle of your face with a light dusting you can also your fingertips or a sponge if you wanted to. You're good to go in any direction from this point now. You could do a full face and makeup and look really glamorous for evening or you can just totally be natural. So Amy, we're gonna do a really simple eyelook. You have beautiful green eyes, and I think that's a great thing in summertime or just any time just to really quickly brighten them. Use a color that basically has green wash to it and simply just brush it across without being too particular, blend it--

I never knew if it was okay to wear green shadow on green eyes.

I think it's beautiful because actually in your eye, just look at me, you have sort of an amber center. What the green will do will just make the other color pop. And so it's just enough trying to do it for yourself especially on a day to day. Girls get kind of bored of the same color, blues and blacks and grays and this color you'll see is gonna actually just read really simply and naturally and it won't even really look like you have green shadow on your eye. It has a little hint of gold in it too, which is just really nice for summer. And if you look up, and with this look, it's really simple. You just put the eyeshadow simply around it. As you see I'm not being too particular, and then from this point here, this is just a quick simple application and some mascara. I mean each girl is different. You have lovely lashes, they're long, so you don't need anything that's necessarily sort of lengthening. You might not like something that's maybe more thickening perhaps, but do you feel good?


I'm just doing it quickly so that we can get you ready for the office in 5 minutes or something. There we go. Amy, so to complete your look and to just blend it all together and make it a pretty and amazing makeover, we'll just gonna blend in some peach really softly and apples and around your cheekbone in a soft plumy pink and also it's sort of warming color. Nothing too bright because I know you don't want a full makeup. And then with your lips, what I'm gonna do is just dab, would you pass me this-- fabulous. With your index finger or whatever finger makes you comfortable, I'm just gonna dab. This is one of the hardest looks in Europe. It's just a lip tint basically of your favorite lipstick, and you just dab it on. It just gives you a quick bit of color. You can totally do whatever it is, office, hanging out at home with your friends, you look great but you're not fully made up. And I'm just using my fingers to excess takeoff the extra lip color and blend in with the one that actually has the lip color, so I'm sort of going back and forth and then boom. Amy, well completely your look is totally natural. Your eyes are popped. I've used a color around your lash area in a very smooth, soft way and it made you stand out I think. And then also with your skin tone, I've just evened out, taking out a little bit of red, put in a light little bit of blush just to give you some color and lightly stain your beautiful mouth with a lip tint basically, because you've got really full lip, and the total look is pretty natural. I know it's sort of another step for you but I think people are gonna look at you and you look I think you look radiant and fresh.
