Smoked out eyes in these shades of taupe and neutral violets are amazing on her dark warm eyes. This look is balanced by the nuded out Myth lipstick by MAC topped with a pastel pink gloss.

I wanted to share a few highlights from this year's homecoming bound young ladies. I used to struggle with knowing the "appropriate" amount of makeup for a young lady, but now I put most of the control into their hands. With Pinterest, Instagram, tumblr, and the always-picture-perfect Kardashians - Beauty and Makeup and Trends are less of a mystery for younger girls. Each young belle that I worked with this fall had such a defined sense of style and what look they wanted to create for their special night. I loved being a part of their day and helping them express their individuality. Above all, seeing them all feel as beautiful as they truly are - that's such a gift. Sometimes I think I feel even better than my made up gals when I'm done. :)
