Oh, Make Me Over!

Lately, I haven’t had the chance to look and feel glamorous; between running, writing, guesting on ShopTV and teaching exercise classes, I simply have been too lazy and tired to get all dolled up. So when Vince and Kring scheduled a fun shoot, I decided to join in the fun.

Miserable with No Makeup

Not my best look.

Enter Jaclyn Go. Trained at Maquillage Professionel (Make-Up For Ever), Jac arrived armed with a caseful of makeup and an assistant who quickly went to work on my hair. Jac took a moment to assess what to do about my haggard face, then quickly laid out her brushes.

Jac vs. my sleepy face

I’ve noticed that people trained under Maquillage usually spend a lot of time on eye makeup, and Jac was no different. I really appreciated how the blend of colors she used on my lids made me look vibrant and alive.

Of course, all that attention to my face meant Jac and I were in close quarters. It gave me a chance to notice her long beautiful eyelashes!

When I grow up, I want lashes like hers.

Aside from being a professional makeup artist, Jac runs an eyelash extension salon called i-Lash. I’ve had experience using false eyelashes for a dramatic effect, but they were always obviously false. These eyelash extensions, in contrast, look very natural. (Maybe I’ll get my eyelashes done in time for my sister’s wedding in April…)

By the time Jac was done with me, I was a changed woman. I felt energized, awake, beautiful, and powerful. (Hrhrhr.) The makeup lasted through hours of posing and some costume changes, and I was even able to go to a high school friend’s baby shower looking none the worse for wear. Thanks, Jac!
