Airbrush Makeup and Half Updo for Katrina

  It's been quite a while since I last posted an entry here and for the most part I have been very busy with work.  Aside from that I have been getting more freelance hair and makeup jobs during the weekends.  So, yay! =)

  Earlier this year I have given my niece a makeover and if you want to see how it went please continue reading.  =)

Before the makeover

  To start off, I used Celeteque Acne Solutions Oil Control Toner on her combination oily skin.  Prior to this she washed off her makeup using Belo Pore Refining Facial Wash.  I then proceeded with Mary Kay Timewise Moisturizer for oily skin and let this sit for a while.  Then I used a mattifying primer (Suesh) over her T-zone.  Next I corrected her under eye area using Graftobian orange corrector.  Next I applied a thin layer of RCMA foundation all over.  I also used RCMA to highlight and contour.  Then I topped with Glambox airbrush foundation for a flawless finish and set everything with Cinema Secrets transparent and custard loose powder.

  Her eyebrows were shaved to almost nothing back then so I had to map out the shape using Mary Kay eyebrow pencil in Blonde.  Then used NYX eyebrow gel to further define her brows.  I chose to use a shimmery champagne eyeshadow on the lid.  Then blended a matte peach and matte brown on her crease.  These are all from Inglot but I can't remember the shade numbers. =P  I used Espresso from my Lorac Pro Palette to define the outer corners of her eyes.  Then lined the upper lash line with Maybelline black gel liner.  I blended a brown eyeliner pencil (Urban Decay) with a matte brown eyeshadow on her lower lashline.  Applied false lashes that are longer on the outer edges.

  To keep things natural looking, I used a mixture of Graftobian cream blushes for a peachy pink glow.  And also mixed Graftobian lipsticks to match the cheeks.  Unfortunately, the blush and lipstick colors are not so apparent due to the warm bulbs I was using back then.  To complete the look, I curled her hair in sections using a 1 inch curling iron (Conair) and slightly teased the crown.  Some of her hair were pinned back but I didn't get a picture of this.  Lastly, I blow dried her fringe using a roller brush.  And voila!  =)
