In Living Color Makeup Artist {Elizabeth Etefia}

Although my birthday outfit was pretty simple, I wanted my hair and makeup to make a statement. So, I decided to have my makeup professionally done by In Living Color Makeup Artistry by Elizabeth Etefia. I went to high school with Elizabeth and although I haven't seen her in years, we've stayed connected through social media and I love all of the photos she posts of her makeup jobs.

 I typically wear eyeshadow and lipstick when I go out…and that's it. So getting my makeup seriously done was a leap of faith and really exciting!

Elizabeth came over to my place and did my makeup for me after I got dressed for my birthday dinner. She came on time, was really prepared and we discussed what she would do before she got started. I've always wanted a smokey eye look, so I requested that!

First, she did my eyebrows, hehe!

I appreciated Elizabeth explaining her tools, brands, and method while she was doing my makeup. She made me feel really comfortable with the entire process.

It took her about an hour to complete my look and apply the lashes!

I loved the finished product.

And loved the photo shoot that followed.

My friends loved my look and so did strangers! I'm really happy I chose to get my makeup done for my birthday, and even happier that I chose Elizabeth to do it.

If you live in the Atlanta area and you want your makeup done for a special event or for photos, I definitely suggest Elizabeth. I can't wait to get my makeup done by her again!

See more faces she's done here.
