Makeover on my Mom!

Happy Easter weekend!
My family came over for Easter this weekend, so I thought it was a great opportunity to do a makeover on my mom!  Her name is Riki, short for Maryke ;)
My mom never wears makeup and if she did, it would be a swipe of blue eyeshadow over the lid, that's all.
As you can tell by the before photo she has beautiful skin!
Maybe that's where I get my good skin genes :)

Before I started, I asked her what she wanted and most importantly, what she didn't want!
She said she sees women wear makeup and it doesn't match their neck, so...I only put foundation where she really needed it, the centre of the face.
Because she doesn't wear makeup at all, I kept it soft and simple. I used grey eyeshadows on the lids.
She has the perfect eye shape for winged liner, I was tempted, but I didn't want to scare her on her first makeover ;)  Next time!!
I love how her eyebrows turned out.
She didn't want bright lipstick either, so I kept that neutral.  Although she could totally pull off a bright peachy lip!

window photo to show her face is the same as her neck ;)
