Natural Make Up Look

Jazymn Washington helps with the everyday natural look that all women like to wear. first she starts off with applying foundation and concealar to the face to hide an dark spots. Then she fills in the eyebrows with a lighter shade so the eyebrows wont look so dark. Once the eyebrows are nice and filled in she applies eyeliner using a soft black creme eyeshadow instead of liquid eyeline. liquid should be used for a nightime look. Next she applies blush starting at the side hairline and going down ward to the cheeks this makes the face appear slimmer. Finally she finishes up by adding a little bit of lip gloss.

I had to join the action and get a shirt for myself. The old college tshirts studentes switched in will be donated to charities.
