Askmewhats Report: Basement Academy Day 4 (Part 2)

Note from Author: School is an intensive 2 weeks program. It's not only 4 days, I've only reported 4 days because it takes time for me to crop the shots and type in a report about that! Though I've graduated last night, I will still continue the report for my school adventure, because you haven't seen everything yet :D

Wow..school is over! I've graduated!!! Weeeeee!!!!!

Anyways, before I talk more on the graduation, let me continue with my class report :)

This is part 2 of my Day 4 class at the Academy. Since we are on a topic of darker foundation, healthy tan look! Bronzy look is part of the class curriculum! I am glad!!! When do I have the chance to put on a super healthy tan on someone?

Bronzy look is fun to do because it gives out a really healthy skin to your model! You can go crazy with shimmers and it's acceptable even in photographs!

What makes a Bronzy Look?

  • Dark Foundation
  • Conceal using a shade lighter than the dark foundation on T-zone and undereye
  • Application of 2way dark foundation
  • Intense contouring focusing on the hollow of the cheeks
  • Eyebrow shaping
  • Shimmery and glittery eyes
  • Strong eyelining
  • Bronzers and highlighters
  • Shimmery lips
Thanks to my dear hubby
for the photos!




Blue, thanks so much for being
such a wonderful model!




Applied aqua colored shimmery e/s
combined with golds



Here's a before and after shot
of pretty Blue




Even at 11:30pm,
we still have time to camwhore

see our tired faces?




If you have the time and energy
I strongly suggest to try the bronzy look!

It makes such huge difference!
I wonder how I'll look wearing darker foundation!
Tanned Chinese? hahahhaa


Keep smilin'

Stay happy!

  36. Teeyah, hotcakes! thank you :)

    Gio, thanks! I enjoyed this look because the model just knows how to pose! LOL

    iambeautiful20 , it is something to try ! You're right. About darker shade, whatever shade you are using at the moment, go 2-3 shades darker than your original shade! If you are tan to start with, you can use some Dark Cocoa foundation! :)

  37. B, jen, thank you!

    Fuz, So true, I get a bit lazy on the neck part as it's quite low and you have to make sure to blend everything!

    ShopnChomp and Nicnic, thanks for the well wishes! :)

    Rasilla, thanks to my hubby for taking great shots :)

    Connie, thank you sis!

    ReplyDelete
  38. omg i wonder if that'll work on me. i can't imagine myself tan!

    ReplyDelete
  39. i'm too afraid to wear darker foundation. i just like to bronze in certain areas of my face. but all over? i might look like a oompa loompa. great job.
