DAY 2: Evening Makeup

Hello everyone! Today is one very tiring day. Makeup class at HD Makeup Studio and Academy started early at 11 AM and ended at 5 PM. On my way home I was met with heavy traffic and more traffic still because I had to go to the airport in the evening. And at this moment, I'm too wasted to even finish my sandwich for dinner. But, hey, my fingers must have a brain and body of their own, that they just continue typing and typing. =)

Anyway, I learned a lot today in school. That includes concealing and correcting and my most loved part - eye makeup! Applying eyeshadow on a model is again, not easy and blending the right colors is really key. Plus you have to learn the different types of eyes - droopy, wide-set, protruding, etc. and you have to know the proper application techniques to make the eyes appear really amazing and beautiful with makeup - no matter what type.

We were told to do an evening makeup look. I gave it a good thought first. How do I want to look on a lovely evening? Well, almost always, I want my evenings to be laid back, relaxed and romantic. I'm no party type so I definitely won't go for heavy or smoky eyes. One of the things I learned in makeup school is of course The Golden Rule. When you put makeup on a client or a model, ask yourself how you'd feel if the same makeup is put on you. If the makeup that you did on a client is one that you personally don't find beautiful or satisfying or you generally don't feel happy about it, most definitely, your client feels the same. So that's why I was thinking about a romantic dinner and wine and how I'd put on my makeup when I heard "evening makeup". =)

Before Makeup

She's my model for today. Unfortunately, I forgot her name. All I remember was she's 15 years old and is a fourth year high school student. We chatted a bit about school and her friends and she's really very nice to talk to. She has medium complexion, with some discolorations on her forehead. Her problem areas are just the dark areas under the eyes, dry chapped lips, and some adolescent breakouts that aren't really noticeable. Over-all her skin condition is good.

This is what I did on her.

I know my makeup application skills are very far from pro, but at least I tried. And I tried very hard today. And ultimately, that's how I know I want to put my evening makeup on. =)
