In today’s makeover column in the Province newspaper, I feature 42 year-old, Ilona Kuligowska; a stay at home mom, who likes short hair but feels like she needs a little refresh to make her look a little more hip and stylish.
Cleanse hair with KMS “Silk Sheen Shampoo and Conditioner “ ($16 and $17). Spray KMS “Silk Sheen Leave-In Conditioner”, for instant detangling and manageability ($19) and blow dry hair using your fingers to create texture. Finished the style with KMS “Hair Play Molding Paste” ($18) for pliable texture and definition.
llona never wears makeup. After moisturizing her rather dry skin, I applied a lightweidht foundation, followed by concealer and bronzer. I used shades of taupe brown, slate silver and champagne around her eye. I curled her eye lashes and coated them with black mascara and added a nude-warm blush to her cheeks and lips, and finished with a highlight shimmer on the bridge of her nose and cheek bones.
