I knew the look I wanted to do for Ruth the second I heard her traumatic makeup story :) Apparently, she had gone to get her makeup done at a salon prior to a wedding where they "made her look old." As she was describing her experience, I knew just the perfect title to give her look: the "Please don't make me look old" look!
While Ruth normally does not wear any makeup, I still wanted to give her a good experience with the products and final outcome, where she'd feel comfortable and beautiful in her own skin.

Before and After #1
Before and After #2
To accomplish this look, several steps I focused on were to even out her skin tone, add more definition to her brows, and give her healthy, rosey looking cheeks. For Ruth's hair, I asked Margaret to make a deeper side part with a front sweep of her bangs and give her some framing volume around her face. It turned out great!
I hope you enjoyed this experience Ruth! You look fresh and YOUNG! :)
Stay tuned tomorrow for our next model: Bo (Glamour Rock!)
