Makeover Monday: Bohemian Beauty

Happy Makeover Monday to you all! This last Friday some of our friends from Portland came and stayed with us for a night here in Austin, TX. While they were here, I roped my friend Ashley (her husband said no…darn) into being my next Makeover Monday victim. She said yes….and so,  here we are.

Since my friend has naturally wavy hair that could easily frizz up if straightened and then subjected to humidity, we decided to vamp up  her natural hair and go for a bohemian, makeup and hair vibe. For this look I wanted her to have fresh glowing skin with natural pink lips and gold and bronze, smoky eyes. This look is not dramatic, but it sure does stand out.  Does anyone else think she has a Jessica Biel look going on?
