My favorite makeup look for fall and winter
The makeup look in this picture is stunning. It's such a warm, glowy, ethereal look. It sort of reminds me of the Dynasty, Charlies Angels, Falcon Crest era of makeup. Ever notice when you watch those shows the woman seem to glow with warmth off the screen. That is actually what motivated me to get into makeup. I was 8 yrs old sitting on the corner of my mother's bed watching Charlies Angels. I would sit there in awe of there beauty. I said to myself that day forward that I will learn to look like that. So there became my obsession with makeup. My mother would take me into Bloomingdales and let me get my makeup done for free. Those were the good old days. I would stay in there for hours mesmerized by all the dancing colors shining off the glass counters. Even as I got older and was having a bad day, there was nothing a walk through the Bloomingdales beauty dept couldn't fix. Well, back to this lovely woman's makeup, this look reminded me of what makeup is suppose to be. It's to give you a lit from within look. Not to get all Ghandi on you, but makeup should bring out your inner spiritual glow. I truly believe when a woman looks her best, she feels her best and she glows from within. I love the warm brown on her eyes and the hightlight on her cheeks. I also love the soft full lips that bring the look together. It's not overstated, it's actually understated to perfection. I will be recreating this look and will post the pictures. What do you think about this makeup look? What is your favorite memory with makeup? I would love to hear from you. Remeber girls, keep your glow on.
