Makeup for my sister's senior portraits

My sister Mariessa graduates from high school AND with her AA from community college this June! She's my mom's youngest, so of course she went all out and did her senior portraits :) I did her makeup using the Urban Decay Naked Palette. Mariessa is 19 but she looks like she's about 14 in real life, so I wanted to make sure I didn't take her too far out of her comfort zone. Plus, she doesn't wear makeup on a daily basis so keeping her very neutral and enhancing her features were paramount in this look. I used Virgin under her brow to highlight, Buck in her crease, Smog on her lid and Darkhorse in the outer "V". I used her own foundation which was Studio Fix Fluid in NW50 but normally I would NOT recommend it because it can make the face look lighter than the body in photos. But I didn't have time to take her in to get matched with a more preferable foundation. I used Flirt 'n Tease blush by MAC and a little Pearl Cream Color Base to highlight the tops of her cheekbones. I think she ate off all her lipstick by the time the photos were taken :) but I used Polished Up lipstick by M.A.C. and Blacktrack Fluidline in her waterline. I think she looks gorgeous and I'm so proud of her accomplishments!! Her photographer, Colleen Pfeilschiefter did an awesome job, like her FB page to see even more great images!
