    Imogen and I wanted her character to be multi faceted, not dull and one dimensional. She is a professional woman, but young, artistic and a bit quirky. We wanted her makeup to go along with her wardrobe, which consisted of some really fun vintage pieces, to belie this. So, we went simple but strong, starting with a very light foundation just to even out, bold black eyeliner, not sixties cat eye perfect, but a bit more rock and roll smudgy, which we achieved by blending with a sparkly black shadow over a gel liner. Then black mascara and a bit of pink blush, and a light sparkly lip gloss. Our final bit of whimsy was to do her nails, which were short and natural, in a multi colored glitter, and let them chip a bit.
