Make-up Tips:

For the shorter look we went for light coverage. Allison's cheekbones were sharply defined while her eyes were deeply to complement her look. When she got the extensions we decided to soften the eye-shadows with very minimal contouring of the eyes. The upper eyeliner was heavily applied and voluminous mascara was used to enhance the bottom and top lash-line. To finish the look Allison's cheek bones were softly enhanced with Eve Pearl Classic Bronzing Trio. Products used to achieve both looks Eve Pearl Cosmetics available at Racquel J. Makeup Studio.
