An Extra Makeup Look

Makeup is magical. Seriously though, you can make your face shine with a rainbow highlighter, turn your eyelids glittery, and even have blue lips. There really is no limit to what you can do with an eyeshadow palette and some brushes, never mind an entire makeup case full of products. Makeup is an art and makeup artist are exactly that - artists.

Last month while I was in Calgary my cousin, Madison (the one with the ambitious idea to wake up before the crack of dawn and go to Moraine Lake) gave me an extra makeover. Madison of @MadsPrettyMakeup on Instagram is a self-taught makeup artist. She loves glitter, glow and lashes!

The look she came up with on me is very extra. It's definitely something I'm not accustom to wearing, but never the less I completely loved it. From the gorgeous eye to the eyebrow gems I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it all turned out. I like to describe this look as modern Egyptian. Think Cleopatra 2017, a bold wing, cut crease, and lashes. I mean for real... look at that cut crease though!
