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! =)
