Cincinnati makeup artist/Makeup Bag Monday; Reagan

Reagan kindly sent over her goods for my appraisal. I have had the pleasure of doing Reagan's face twice now, for a family shoot and for a Valentine's date with her hubby.

While Reagan has a nice basic set here (AND an eyelash curler-!), she is definitely playing it safe. I would love to see her incorporate some plums to spice up those blah, basic browns, to give her eye color more contrast.

I would also like to see her add a little luminizer to the mix-pop that baby on the tops of the cheekbones, the browbones, the inner corner of the eye-you get a foxy glow that can transform even a busy and sleep deprived mom.

And while a liquid liner is always a classic, why not try a soft smudgy liner pencil once in a while for a very quick (and not messy) route to a smoky eye? I love Pixi from Target-very easy to manipulate in the first few seconds, but once it sets up, it is bulletproof.

I added in a nice basic brush set; Reagan will see a huge difference in her eye makeup when she has great tools.

Lastly, she needs color on her lips! A lipstain will give her a pop of color and last all day.

Wouldn't this make a nice Mother's day gift, hint hint?
