It was green at first

As a bridal makeup artist, I am often called upon to create some very interesting and unusual looks for my clients. I basically have seen it all, when it comes to reference pictures that clients want me to base their makeup style on. However, I recall this one time that a client came to me with what at first seemed like a normal request. She wanted me to use her own makeup products that she had personally created in her home.

I began with the usual application of a base foundation to create a clean slate on the client’s face. From here the real appearance of the makeup can begin to form. However, her homemade makeup seemed to be reacting strangely, as at first it turned green and rapidly turned to match her skin tone. I’ve never seen anything like it. She later revealed it contained sea algae and spinach extracts.
