7. Smudge some black eye shadow along the upper lash line.
8. Use a small angled brush to apply dark brown eye shadow to eye brows.
9. Add a small amount of black to further define eye brows.

14. Apply a light concealer with a fluffy brush under the eyes in a triangle, down the nose, in the middle of the forehead, on the chin, on the cupids bow and under the cheek bone. Blend all this out.
15. Apply some loose translucent powder under the eyes with a fluffy brush to bake the makeup.
16. Apply mascara to the top lash line.

25. Apply some black lip mix all over the lips with a small angled brush.
26.Part the hair in the middle and french plait both sides.
27. Pin the plaits up with hair grips to flatten them to the head.
28. Ask the model to hold the front of the wig and pull it backwards to secure it properly.
29. Brush the wig out and place the fringe how you want.
30. Place the bow on the left side of her head, on a slight angle, and secure it with hair grips.

I was a lot happier with how this makeup turned out this time compared to last time. I applied the wig and bow this time and I think the makeup looks less overdone when it’s balanced out with very dark hair. I made the eye brows look a lot softer this time. I used a brown eye shadow to fill them in and then went over with a bit of black to darken them slightly. I thought that the blush looked slightly blotchy last time, so this time I used a lighter blush first to determine where I wanted the blush and to act as a transition colour; this made the blush look more seamless. I did the foundation and concealer after I did the eyes, which I didn’t do last time, to make sure that the foundation was as flawless as possible. I used a dark brown colour in the crease to act as a transition colour for the black; I found that this made the eye shadows easier to blend together. I didn’t use the contact lenses in this look because they hadn’t arrived yet, but I will add the contacts in in my assessment.
