Askmewhats Report: Basement Academy Day 5 Fantasy Look

Hello everyone!
Happy Friday! :)

Wow, time flies super fast when you're busy and having a great time.
Last Sunday, we moved our class on that day because the teacher wants us to graduate a day earlier to the hair cutting class, because we have one classmate, Stephanie, who's studying both make-up and hair cutting class so she can't do her finals on the same day!

So anyways, me waking up on a Sunday is not a good idea, but I really don't mind waking up early if we're talking about make-up right?

We were asked to do a research on Fantasy make-up and do a look on it! I've done researches and when you talk about "Fantasy", Fairy make-up always comes to my mind. I wanted something different. And one make-up that I searched caught my eye!

I just saw the photo on Google images and I've researched on who's done this look to thank her for such wonderful inspiration.

This look is done by

Ms. Anabel Vargas

Very pretty, I got inspired
by this look and do some changes
on the eye makeup

Here's my version

I want to thank my model BLUE lol yes her name is Blue and she's color Blue!

Products used ---

For the Face
  • Thevi Foundation mixed with CG Light
  • MAC Shadester to contour
  • P&J Protective Dual Powder Foundation
  • Dollface Concealer
  • PAC blue e/s all over the forehead, side of cheeks, and neck
For the Eyes

Close up I've changed the eye makeup

The Queen of the Sea
My hubby calls her "Mystic"
from X-men lol

After taking a look at some shots
Teacher asked me to continue
the blue down the neck
You can see I am having fun

Now Mystic ain't happyhahaha

I really enjoyed this!
Everyone knows I'm always on the safe, neutral side
Now I am starting to love colors! :)

Have a wonderful day!

Keep smilin'

Stay Happy!

    LipStick Staiin, funny, the model has been called so many names due to her makeup, and mermaid is one of them! :)

    PB,hahahah I felt bad for putting the colors on her neck, imagine if I put it all over the face? lol we won't be friends after... I think lol :) but you're right, it'll be cool to have it all over the face!

  26. Citrine, hmm..shu uemura cleansing oil, then facial wash, then use cotton buds and cotton to remove those eye makeup, approximately 30 min?
