Primary Colors

Tonight’s makeup look was inspired by the primary colors. As a makeup artist or anyone in the beauty, fashion, and art profession knows that the primary colors are the start to making other colors. I decided to try something new, I have never mismatched my eye colors before so this was definitely fun. I’m also trying out a new foundation, contour, and highlight routine as well. I don’t know how to feel about this yet, but anything to save time and cut my full Glam face to 45 minutes per person.
