Meet Caity!  Pregnancy really agrees with her!  She is due next month with baby number 2!  Today she decided to treat herself to a pregnancy makeover with me. This is her “After” picture. My goal was that she would learn a few tips to make her beauty routine streamlined while she is pregnant. I wanted her to feel rejuvenated, refreshed and beautiful when she left!

Here is Caity’s “Before” picture you can see how pretty she is with no makeup at all. She showed up in comfy clothes, with the plan that we would demo an easy way to dress up her every-day look.  I wanted to give Caity a fresh-faced look that made her feel pretty but not too made up.

I have a degree in fashion and was a fashion stylist for years. There are simple ways to put together outfits that are both comfortable and cute! You can see that Caity’s outfit is super comfy and stylish.

I used natural, earthy colors on her eyes, emphasizing liner on the top lid so that she looks more awake and vibrant. Having a slight curl in her hair makes her look just a bit more dressy, but it didn’t take much time at all. I finished her hair with a light coat of hairspray. The humidity in can be pretty intense this time of year.

Here in Sterling, outside Washington, DC, life moves quickly. It is hard to set aside time for yourself. Caity brought a few outfit ideas that would work for a night out with girlfriends, or a date night with her hubby. We chose this one because it is something she would wear even if she weren’t pregnant.

I am so proud of her for setting time aside for herself! Consider giving yourself or someone you know a pregnancy makeover as a gift!
