Narges is a Vancouver based executive speech coach who works one-on-one with executives and entrepreneurs to help them improve their public speaking and presentation skills.  She is a wife and mother of a toddler, who has very little time for herself, and was desperately seeking my assistance to refresh her look…and boy did she need some serious help!  Granted, I imagine that being a new mother and running a successful business is no easy task.  She often puts her energy in nurturing and helping others, while putting herself last.

I have to say, I quite like Narges with dark hair; it’s very rich and luxurious looking (…so Selma Hayek!).  To put luster back into her locks, I started with her re-growth (…bye-bye grey hair!).  I followed by applying a semi-permenent gloss for color balancing and added shine.  She has SUPER thick and naturally wavy hair and decided to re-shape and de-bulk it for better manageability.

To brighten and warm her complexion I used an peachy/orange based primer (Make Up For Ever HD Primer #4), followed by a sheer foundation and concealer.  I finished her look with mascara, blush and lipgloss – simple as that!  I’d say she looks 10 years younger…

Here’s how Freida Pinto and Selma Hayek sported a similar look on the red carpet…

Here’s to you Narges, and every other working mother reading this!  Remember to take some time to treat yourself today!:)
