Want to know what happens during a Makeup Application Session?? This is something I've wondered ever since seeing it pop up in various salon treatment lists and it never really crossed my mind to give it a shot. I do my makeup a lot and recently I've been loving the more natural look where I don't even apply makeup.
This I suppose wouldn't make me want to spend to have my makeup professionally done and even for special occasions I would do it myself; HOWEVER, since having the experience to go through a full makeover with Lime Salon based in Inverkeithing - I was pleasantly surprised at how well done my makeup was!! The eye makeup was stunning and much different to how I would normally apply it at home.
My eyeshadow was applied beautifully and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome and even got to try some new brands I haven't yet had the chance to get a hold of - such as the Fenty Beauty Range and Morphe Jaclyn Hill Palette. I've been longing to try these brands but just haven't had the opportunity to delve into buying them with being so busy and having other things to buy first!! I'm actually in the middle of prepping for Florida next month and buying bits here and there for our time away and super excited for when the times comes!...
The rest of my makeup was applied to give off a more natural finish! It wasn't too unnatural looking and we decided to build upon coverage and go in with a hint of contour and then a strong highlight as I love a beaming highlight! The eyes were definitely the main focal point with pops of orange tones mixed with an inner corner shimmer to open the eyes up alongside long, thick false lashes.
Lips were kept natural with a nude beige tone using a mixture of colours from the Anastasia Beverly Hills lip paletteto create a unique colour that really compliments the overall look but subtle enough to let the eyes and highlight pop whilst still keeping the natural tone to the overall look.

Lime Salon do have there own makeup room in Inverkeithing but we decided to do everything upstairs straight after having my hair cut and coloured to save moving around. You can see the makeup room in the images above and below and they even have professional lighting (ring light(s)) if you fancy before and after photos of the session. The Makeup room is dreamy with false lashes on display and a huge professional makeup mirror which is goals for any makeup enthusiasts dressing table... [/pipdig_padded_text]
