BEAUTY IS STRENGTH

The leopard print dress Emma is wearing is also from [Be] Social. It’s long and flowy without a slit. Sometimes the outfit conceals. Emma is an athlete. Her legs are adorned with the battle scars of multiple surgeries from injuries she endured playing soccer. With each injury comes the struggle and challenge of rehab and a chance to get back on the field. Emma was thrilled to play her favorite sport, soccer, her senior year! She is skipping basketball this year but considering track again. Her mom told me a story of how Emma was learning to high jump with a knee brace on! MAKEUP ARTIST NOTE: When wearing leopard print attire, I always tend to do a neutral smokey eye. I chose creamy tones for the inner to middle of her eyelid. I then went in with a brown and taupe eyeshadow to the outer v crease area and blended to extend the natural shape of her eye. I put on thick, full Ardell lashes and lined her top lash line with a black kohl eyeliner and blended it out to enhance that smokey effect. Since Emma has porcelain skin, I wanted to put some blush on without making her look overdone. And we opted against the red lips that tend to be a common choice when doing a smokey eye. I chose to keep it more subdued and used a color that was closer to her natural lip color.
