They never believe she has a 22 year old daughter

Mother's make-up for a wedding we attended, I feel mature women should have cleaner clearer skin with only one focal point; as I do with my make-up looks:
Clarins Perfecting touch
this was used as a base to smooth out large pores and fine lines, this makes the face younger and more lively
Hanskin BB Cream
only a light amount was applied through rubbing between the hands and patting on the face, too much would make the face caked up, using a patting motion helps blend in the product for a more natural finish.
Secondly, applying a small blog to the back of the hand to warm up the product and using a concealer brush more was applied under the eyes and around the nose area for extra coverage where needed and blended out
E.L.F Complexion perfection
Dusted all over the face to set foundation so it holds in place
Sleek Contour Kit
Applied just under the cheekbones as with age, cheeks may droop slightly the slight contouring brings some shape back into the face
Apply also to the bridge of the nose to shape it to be higher, and slimmer, this will make the nose more of a focal point at the centre of the face
applied just across the cheekbones to add a little colour, buffed out with a kabuki
Spray of water
Using dry powders and matt complexions can bring out fine lines, pores and wrinkles in the skin, by a spritz of water/make-up fixer onto a brush and dabbing it onto the face finishes off the face with a slight dewy and moisturised effect not only making the skin appear healthier and supple but it also makes the make-up look more natural - this is also a good tip for those with dry/flaky patches on their skin
E.L.F. Highlighter
Along the bridge of the nose, just above the apples and alone the top of the cheekbones to bring more light into the face

UD Primer Potion
As we were attending a wedding it was best to prime the lids for lasting durability
UD Naked
Applied all over the lid so that any redness / colouration was eliminated - mainly for photo purposes as they may sine through, applying a nude / colourless powder before shadow also helps with blending should you need to
UD Sin
Lightly dusted on the eyelid for a touch of colour
UD Buck & Darhorse
for the crease & outer v for defining
M.A.C Blacktrack
Thin Lining
HK Falsies
Elongates and thickens her lashes as they're thinner and less prominent when you get older
Eyelash Glue
Nothing fancy here, just to even out her slightly mono lid, this was simply done by adding a blob to where her crease should have been, when the glue is tacky gently push in with a small stick to create the fold and let it dry

E.L.F. Lip Liner
Insures colour durability
Rimmel Nude Delight
Slightly nude colour but natural enough to not be a zombie
Adding some colour to the lips in the centre
MAC See Through
Finishing Gloss

...let alone a 26 year old son
