Makeup for Gem

One of the challenges of doing makeup for someone who doesn't wear makeup at all is to balance the client's desire for a "natural look" while ensuring her features are highlighted in a natural way for photography.

Gem is your typical au naturele gal who leaves the house everyday comfortable in her own skin.  This young mother definitely was not use to wearing a full face of makeup - including false lashes (for the first time!).  Luckily, I was able to play up features that were already pretty to begin with with an amount of makeup she was comfortable with.
