My Jennifer Bradley Makeover Experience

10 comments

I'm an aspiring Makeup Artist and Have done quite a few makeovers on my family and friends. What I know is basically self taught and my go to YouTube channels.
So when I decided to purchase a makeover experience for myself, I was estatic. I'm kinda of picky of how others do my makeup sometimes they are on point and at other times I looked too made up which makes me feel weird.

So when I saw that a makeup session was being offered for a low price on living social I decided to buy it for my B-day in December.
I finally redeemed the voucher on Jan. 31 and my makeup Artist was Tamika. She was beautiful, sweet and very detailed on each step she did on my face.

At first she discussed the whole Jennifer Bradley line and who Jennifer was. By the way Jennifer is a renowned makeup artist that has a celebrity a list like Eva Longoria, Shannon Osborne, Pam Anderson among others. I was just excited to be a part of the whole experience.

I did not come to buy anything I just wanted to be made over and get tips.
I did learn a few tips which made the experience worth it. 
I told Tamika give me the works Fake lashes and all! 

I can put lashes on others but struggle with putting them on myself.
Tamika helped me and instructed me on how to place them, it worked but my glue was already tacky and sticky so she ended up applying them.

My eyes were the best feature that were played up. The eyeshadow technique I learned was so cool! All she used was 3 colors but applied my shadow on an angle instead of patting the lids.
Then she filled in my brows naturally with a pencil.

The foundation I found was a bit too much but for pictures it looked good.
She went all out with the bronzer something I normally wouldn't do to myself.
She used a cream cheek color that was beautiful and served as a dual purpose for my lips as well.
And used a highlighter for my cheek bones.

She tightlined my eyes and skipped the top liner which I thought I needed but in reality the Betty Boop half lashes like I call them were totally enough to bring out my eyes.
I was very pleased with this experience and I did learn from it.

With the package I recieved for free the Betty Boop lashes lol and the Jennifer Bradley monster lash 3D mascara which is fabulous. That mascara alone is 28 bucks. 
In total the whole package worth 100 dollars was 17 dollars with a special coupon from living social. 
But now I see it's on sale for 24 bucks. 

This 90 Minute Makeup session has many locations, so if you are interested search Jennifer Bradley on www.livingsocial.com for 24 bucks or visit www.jenniferbradley.com

Oh, here is the before and after at their studio which unfortunaly had bad lighting.
Before and after pics were included so Tamika took them and emailed them to me. 
Unfortunately, she took the pics so close I kind of flinched and look scared in the before one lol
But oh well the finished product made me happy!


Then I decided to take selfies at home under better lighting! 



And made this one my FB profile pic in black and white. Lol


Here's the beautiful Tamika:)
