No messing about with an elastic band ruining my blow-dry, or masks messing up my make-up. Essentially, the mask WAS the make-up and the make-up WAS the mask! This isn't something I would even dream of attempting on my own so I decided to enlist the services of Zaynab Mirza, founder and creator of Provoke Cosmetics. With eighteen years in the business, there's really not much about make-up that Zaynab doesn't know.
What I CAN tell you, though, is that I learnt I'm really not using enough concealer (I did my own base before she arrived). She's not the first person to tell me this.... hmmm, maybe I need to be a bit heavier handed with the cover-up! She also sculpted my cheekbones to perfection, slimming down my face in an instant, with just a few flicks of her hand and the sculpting brush; a definite must-learn for me.
So, as I can't tell you all the "how-to", I'll just have to be content with showing you lots of pictures so that you can see her amazing creation for yourself in all its glory. No need to add I was the only one in the room to be wearing a painted on mask :)
Have you ever been "painted"? I'd love to hear!!!
