Mama's makeup

My mama wanted me to do a smokey look on her. It was my first time to do her full makeup, usually I would just retouch what she had on. I didn't want the look to be too harsh so I used dark browns and not black. I wanted the smokiness to compliment and not over power her natural beauty & I wanted the look to suit her age. My mom is in her 40's and she has wrinkles, so I used mostly matte makeup since glitter or shimmer will only emphasize the lines. I only applied a bit of shimmer to the brow bone and in the inner corners of her eyes.
