Dramatic and sultry: special occasion makeup
Ginger McClellan has a fearless, practical approach to makeup. She stumbled into the world of liner, highlighter and eye shadow by accident and hasn’t looked back. What started with simply helping her daughter get ready to compete in beauty pageants turned into a career as other moms began requesting her help with their own daughters’ pageant makeup. From there, Ginger, whose background is in nursing, began working on industry photo shoots and gained traction for her expertise. She has been named among the top 10 makeup artists by The Pageant Planet, and she continues to hone her skills through her freelance work and aesthetician studies at Skintrenzixs SkinSchool. Ginger is passionate about bringing practical tips to women of all ages, and about helping her clients to feel their most beautiful.
Simple steps for strobing
With spring just around the corner, there is no better time to add a fresh, dewy glow to your makeup routine. Ginger recommends liquid highlighter for ladies with dry skin and a powder highlighter for those with oilier skin. Dab a bit of highlighter on the high points of your face to bring those features forward and give yourself that lit-from-within glow.
Get the perfect cat eye
Do you long to create that perfect sultry cat eye, but struggle with using liquid liner? Ginger recommends using a piece of Scotch tape for creating the perfect liquid line with ease.
Don’t be intimidated by falsies! False lashes instantly elevate any look and are a breeze to apply with these tips from Ginger.
Apply liner to your water line for maximum impact
One of Ginger’s go-to tricks for finishing a look is applying liner to the lower water line. Darker liner creates a dramatic look perfect for a sexy, smoky eye, while white liner in the water line opens up the eye and makes eyes appear bigger and more awake.
