Makeup Monday: Veera

Makeup Monday take 5! In this series I have chosen some interesting people to sit in my makeup chair and fulfilled my vision for their makeup. Today’s model is someone very special to me. She’s the little sister I never had: Veera.

Makeup Monday: Veera

Veera is Risto’s niece, so practically a part of my family. I have had the honor of watching Veera grow up to become a young teen. We became good friends as soon as I met her. Veera is funny, kind and always full of energy. She’s a very good photographer and she has taken my outfit pictures more than once.

Veera is a young teen who’s just getting interested in makeup.  She was excited about me doing her makeup (as was I!). I think the key things in starting up in makeup is to keep it simple and fresh. A young girl doesn’t need heavy makeup – then again, no one does.  Teens tend to get pimples and some imperfections on the skin. If they are a bother, it’s okay to cover them up. Makeup also protects the skin and helps to keep it balanced. Mineral makeup is an awesome option for a teen. It’s easy to use, it treats the blemishes and it looks very natural. For Veera I also used a light pink blush on the cheeks.

I wanted to emphasize Veera’s beautiful blue eyes, so I applied some light shimmer all over the lid. Who doesn’t like to sparkle a little, right? I also applied a light coat of *Tony Moly’s Panda’s Dream 02 mascara. That’s a great option as a teen’s first mascara, because it’s easy to remove with just warm water.

As for the eyebrows, I only brushed them through with a brow gel. For the lips I chose *Clarins Instant Light Lip Gloss, which has a sweet toffee scent to it. I’ve been using those lip glosses a lot lately and I love them.

Thank you so much Veera for being my model!

What do you think of this fresh look? It’s actually something I wear a lot, especially if I’m in a hurry. Just one color on the lid, a coat of mascara, some light base and a lip gloss. A little makeup goes a long way.

Makeup Monday continues! In this series I have chosen some interesting people to sit in my makeup chair and fulfilled my vision for their makeup. Here is the fourth makeup transformation, featuring a dear friend of mine: Pinja.

Makeup Monday: Pinja

If you’ve read my blog before, you might recognize Pinja. She has starred in my blog before. We met at beauty school and Pinja actually sometimes acts as my personal beauty therapist. She is also a model, a blogger and an eager instagrammer. Her blog focuses on her trips and she started it when she lived in Australia for two years. Pinja is kind, loving and funny. She’s also very hard-working, so it was nice to see her after we both being busy with work and life.

Pinja has such beautiful features and I love to do her makeup. I planned this look around that gorgeous lip color. I used was *YSL Tatouage Couture Matte Stain in the shade 21. It’s the perfect Fall lip shade, a beautiful deep red. I paired the lip color with a simple eye makeup except that burgundy red liner. See how that makes her green eyes pop? If you have green eyes, here’s a full-proof way to accentuate them: put on some red there. That *NYX Faux Black Oxblood Liner is very long lasting.

Pinja has great brows already, but I made them even more perfect by adding some brow strokes using a new product I received from GOSH. That brow product has found its way into my makeup bag, it’s so good. I also tried a new blush  by Clarins.

And hey – make sure to follow Pinja on her Instagram!
