I did one post about books and you all got so bored! My stats speaks for itself 😀 Well, don’t worry your girl is back with another makeup post. This post is not entirely about makeup but also some tips that can be helpful while doing your client’s makeup. If you are just starting out like me, then I understand how nerve wrecking it can be while trusting yourself to do someone else’s makeup. Trust me I have been there. Fortunately, this year I was lucky enough to get all those opportunities to test out my skill on someone else. I did makeup on so many people and overall, most of my clients were satisfied with the result. This is the sort of tips I have learned overtime as well through Youtube. First, it is very important for you to communicate with your client about their skin types so that you can choose product as per their skin. It is also necessary for you to connect with them allowing them to put their trust on you. Cause trust me gurlfriend, if you beat that face wrong for some important events, they ain’t forgetting you :D. Also, do not forget to ask your client if they like the process, how makeup is looking in between sessions or if they wanted to do it in different way. Just because they want you to do their makeup doesn’t mean they have no idea what makeup is. They might be pretty skilled and judging your every move (better be careful).
Second and most important one is, I think makeup looks good when it expresses your personality well. You should be very concerned about your client’s personality and try to exhibit it through makeup (remember makeup is an art itself). Keeping that in mind, when I did my client’s makeup today I tried my best to bring her bubbly personality out on her eyes by giving her complete blown out mauve smokey look. But, keeping her feminine side intact and to balance all the boldness I did add some nude lips and called it a day.
Moving on with makeup, her base was done flawlessly and was complete full coverage cause she was getting ready for the party. I used Naked Skin Foundation by Urban Decay in the shade 7. This foundation is very light weight as the name suggests cause I didn’t want her to have that heavy foundation feeling. But I did go ahead with second layer to give her that full coverage look. I went with Maybelline Anti Age Rewind Concealer in the shade medium and baked her under eye using some loose mineral powder. I then went with Tarte Cosmetics Tarteist PRO Amazonian clay Palette and used the colours “innocent“(light brown) and “whimsy” (burnt orange) in the crease as transition shade. Then, I went ahead and took mixture of “mod“(dark pink), “no filter” (purple pink) and “edgy” (dark brown) in the crease and intensified the crease area. I then went with the colour “drama” (burgundy) in the outer V to make it more intense. And, to create that slight half cut crease look I went ahead and took a synthetic brush with some concealer and slightly cut inner half of her eye lid and topped it off with some warm gold/champagne shimmery colour from Chi Chi cosmetics Warm Vibes Palette. I used the same crease colour in her lower lash line and lined her lower water line with some black eyeliner. She didn’t want too much drama so we settled for a small winged eyeliner and good old coat of mascara to call it a day.
Coming back to face, I did her brows as natural as possible cause she is not a big fan of bold brows. I used Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Brow Pencil in the shade 4. Then, I completely got to beat her base makeup to perfection cause we went for that heavily chiselled contoured face and a bit dark plum blush. I used Autralis AC ON TOUR Powder Contour in the shade medium. For blush I used Savvy blush in the shade plum. Now onto my favourite part, HIGHLIGHTER! For that luminous glow we went for Australis Cosmetics Illuminating Drops in the shade “rose” and topped it off with a highlighter from Bh cosmetics x Carli Bybel palette. Last, but not least (tiring I know ), she wanted to go for that blown out nude lips, so we went with Nyx Cosmetics Suede Liquid Lipstick in the shade sandstorm. Overall, I had fun beating her face to perfection and I am glad that she was happy with the results.
Thank you for your time guys! Sorry for bad quality photos, didn’t get enough time cause she was in rush!
