Askmewhats Makeover: Attending a Debut Birthday Party Look

Grace, my dear sister-in-law, got her own make-up artist! MOI! lol
She's 18, she's young, she's got a lot of parties going around her! This time, she will be attending her friend's 18th birthday party and she wanted me to do her make-up.

I wanted something simple and natural because it isn't her debut party! LOL Simplicity is the key on this makeover and of course, clear healthy skin!

Here's Grace's before photo
Yes, I asked her to smile this time! :P

Here's Grace After!

I didn't touch her brows because she's not used to plucking or shaving, I left it that way and just created a bit of arch and filled in the rest!

Products Used ---

  • Paul & Joe Cream Foundation
  • Paul & Joe Powder Foundation No. 3
  • Revlon Powder Blush in Wine with Everything
  • UDPP
  • Paul & Joe eyebrow pencil no. 2
  • MAC Coquette - to fill in the brows
  • 78pcs e/s palette in Silver
  • MAC Carbon

  • Paul & Joe Curly Mascara in Black
  • Kate Gradical Eyes - white sparkles

I've done her make-up too during her College Acquaintance party and a lot of you would like to see her outfit. I've finally got her photo! LOL Sorry It wasn't clear as she's using a camera phone. She won an award that night and I can't help it but be proud of her!
