Do I look like Angelina Jolie?!?

I'm totally kidding!  Don't answer that question.

Last weekend I had a couple of Sephora gift cards burning a hole in my wallet so I went in for a Special Occasion make-over.  I didn't really have a special occasion, but make-overs are just plain fun, so why not?

I asked for a clean, fresh, spring look that was natural looking, with an Angelina Jolie cat eye.  These were some of the inspiration photos I took with me:

It was really all about the skin more than anything else.

Here's how I looked when I walked in the store:

One of my eyes was a little swollen which is why
I look a little lopsided and wonky~
And now, be gentle with me because I'm really putting myself out here for's how I looked with all of my make-up removed:
Have you ever tried taking a photo of yourself
in a public place with no make-up on??? 
It's a little awkward~
Here are some of the magic tools we pulled out:

I really love Two Faced make-up and this
Natural Face kit is super gorgeous and versatile.

And here's how I looked when I walked out:

Not exactly the life altering transformation that we all hope for when we get a make-over but I love the make up and used up all of my gift cards.

I ended up purchasing the Two Faced Palette you see above, along with some Dior Mascara primer, and an amazing HourGlass lipstick in the colour Fable. The lipstick is a crazy expensive but the cool thing is that you can get refill cartridges for half the price. Next time I go in I also want to grab the Laura Mercier Tinter Illuminizer.

I think these photos are much better:

I always look better when I'm hanging out
with two of my most favourite people in the world!
If Angelina Jolie would ALWAYS walk around in a parka, sunglasses, and undone hair, maybe...just maybe, I could pass for her~

You absolutely look great. Your eyes really pop in the after makeover photos, but really you look awesome all of the time. Even with no makeup. If I looked that good without makeup,.....okay, I sound like one of those old geezers so I'm gonna shut up now. :)
