I met Izzy during freshman orientation at UC Berkeley a few years ago. Although we didn’t have a single class together in college, we stayed good friends ever since! She was heading to Las Vegas for the weekend to attend her friend’s wedding, and she asked me if I could show her some makeup looks. Since we didn’t have a lot of time, this 3-in-1 makeover was an efficient way to go over three different makeup looks in a short amount of time!
Ivelina has been one of my avid readers and has contributed some great posts to this site. She contacted me to let me know that she’s visiting here in California now and is hoping to eventually move here from Pennsylvania. We hung out, and I also gave her makeover. For her makeover, I focused on things that she said she didn’t think she could pull off — bright colors, dramatic eyeliner, and vivid lipstick!
Anne Marie grew up in San Diego, where she enjoyed sunshine and warmth all year long. She has been in the Bay Area now for almost 10 years. Anne Marie wanted a celebrity look, so I picked Marilyn Monroe as my makeup inspiration.
Melanie was born in Philadelphia but was mostly raised in Vallejo, CA. She was already wearing her favorite foundation when she came, so her makeover mainly involved her eyes, cheeks, and lips.
Janin graduated from the University of San Francisco with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. She wanted her makeover to look similar to a picture she saw of Leona Lewis. The eye shadow is a smokey mossy green.
