The last step of our makeover!

Our auction winner came in the other night for her makeup makeover!  Tracilee Messina, owner of Basic Beauty, arrived looking beautiful (but not intimidating) with a case of  magic stuff and a large tray of more magic!

Our lady perched on a stool surrounded by lights and mirrors and Traci started on a clean canvas! She dabbed and blended concealer, highlighters, powders, blushers and bronzers—all with a deft and delicate hand.  The result was a reshaped and enhanced face—more bone structure, brighter skin!  On to eyes–she defined her eyebrows and with a few sweeps of color, a little liner above and below and mascara–her eyes were awesome…a nude lipstick and gloss completed the picture!

Our lady looked beautiful.  The changes were subtle but perfect.  She looked younger, fresher and more current!  She was thrilled!

All the while, Traci was explaining what she was doing and why, and showed us how to duplicate her work.  She gave the winner a list of the products she used and where they were available—great info and so helpful!

We fluffed her new hairdo (it’s so flattering), put on a couple of new outfits and took pictures.  (I’ll share them with you as soon as we’re ready.)

We all had a great time—and the recipient of our makeover was delighted!  Her recent email said all her friends and family thought she looked “awesome”!  And she did!  We all had a fabulous time…what could be more fun than clothes, hair and makeup?

Maybe we have to think about a makeover party…?  Love, Bren
