AMW Makeover: Engagement Party + Post Christmas Gift

Last weekend was a busy weekend for me. It was my first gig for the year 2009!

Pam, a friend of mine and colleague, wanted me to do her make-up for her Engagement Party. I felt so touched as she trusted me to be her and her mom's make-up artist for the event! I do have to apologize as I didn't get the chance to take the before shot of her mom....that will follow! This shot was "unprofessionally" taken by me, as the photographer had to be at work, so please bear with my amateur shots!

Here's Pam's Before Look
Her hair already done by a hairstylist

Skin: Combination (She has a great skin to start with) Concern: Oiliness Target: A very simple yet glowy look

After Shot
(sorry, it's my bad for the bad lighting)
