Askmewhats Report: Basement Academy Day 2

Good day everyone! How's your weekend? Mine is super busy I can hardly breathe! LOL
Another school report to share! :)

Day 2 is another exciting school day because I learned more on...

  • forehead
  • face
  • jaws
  • chin
  • lips
  • nose
Blending is very important as well so whatever is highlighted and contoured won't come out too obvious!

What's more exciting? Eye makeup! We were taught to do 3 colors to enhance the eyes.

1st color (applied all over lids) : beige,gold,vanilla,off white,peach, etc...
2nd color (to be deposited outer corner of the eyes): brown, maroon, blue, green, gray etc..
3rd color (to be deposited on the outer v to deepen the crease) : black, etc...

Here's my model
(My model have virgin eyebrows,
never been touched and shaved all her life,
since she is still 16yrs young,
I just shaved a bit to have a clean look)

We were asked to do
our version of evening look

Smokey look done is a subtle

Doesn't she look prettier
when she smiles?
Love her dimples

Note: did not change her skin tone
the one was taken in yellow light no flash
and the after shot is with flash :)

I will walk you through day 3 soon :)
It gets more and more exciting each day!
Thanks for being part of my adventure!

Have a wonderful day!
Keep smilin'
Stay Happy!

  16. Awe! You always doing pretty works! Love it!

  17. She looks great :D Nice job! It must be so exciting! xD

  18. Wow, you are learning a lot! I'm so uncomfortable with the "outer V". I don't think it works for me because my crease is very shallow like many east Asians.

    Your model is so cute! I think your look makes her look beautiful without overpowering her natural youthfullness! (is that a word...? you know what I mean, right????)

  19. LipStick Staiin, wow, it'll be my pleasure to give you a makeover though you don't even need it!

    Crystal Gale, Yes, it's great to be a student again! but I don't miss the tiredness it goes along ! hhaha

    Anastacia, thank you! Thank you for your appreciation!

  20. Khymm, thanks sis!

    e.motion in motion, thanks, I wish I took clearer pictures though, but it's better than none :)

    K, I know what you mean about the outer v, it is quite difficult to pull off for smaller eyes like most asians have! Yes, Youthfulness is the right word :)


  21. Very natural look! Can't wait to see you wear it!

  22. I love her smile too. She looks so pretty, you did a great job!

  23. Wow, neat, the eyeshadow seemed to have made her eyes more almond-shaped! Good work, Nikki, looking forward to more beauty-school stuff you're willing to share :D
