AMW Makeover: Trial Makeup

Happy Choose-day! :)  Everyday is a Choose-day for me as we have a choice...a choice to be happy!  I always proclaim each day as a happy day and most of the time, it worked!  

I will be sharing to you my first few makeovers for the year!  Let's start with a Trial Makeup!  Anne, my dear client, disclosed to me how much she likes to have a very simple and natural-looking makeup for her special day!  I agree, I myself went for that look on my wedding day year 2007.

Once I saw Anne, I told myself it won't be hard to prettify such beautiful face with such beautiful smile! 

Anne's Skin Condition ---
Very Oily
A bit of redness on some areas


To start off, I was glad to know Anne applied moisturizer prior to me going to her place.  I spritz a bit of water to freshen up her face and found Anne to have oily skin (Super Oily on the T-Zone).

I primed her face with Laura Mercier's Foundation primer, pat it gently until it gets absorbed into the skin and proceeded by looking for the right foundation shade.

As I was waiting for the primer to set in, I spot corrected her redness with various correctors.  Spot correcting on redness on the sides of her nose, her under eye circles and freckles.

I went ahead to mix cream foundation as I do not seem to have the exact shade for her and applied it all over the face adding up as necessary but making sure not to pile on too much to make the bride-to-be feel uncomfortable.

Making sure areas that need to be covered are completely covered "up close", I went ahead and set the foundation and went straight to the brows.

The shape of Anne's brows are perfect, I just filled some of the gaps and lightened up her brows a bit as her hair color is medium brown!  Anne requested for a not so heavy eye makeup and I just enhanced it with a bit of eyeshadow and eyeliner.  No falsies yet (as she's not going anywhere after this trial makeup) but I will definitely use one on her wedding day!

Anne loved the first look...

but her mom wanted the same look
using red lippie

Can you help Anne and her mom decide?  
Natural lip color or the red lippie?
My answer would be natural lippie in the morning and red lippie for reception!
(But that's just me) :D

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

    1. Let's see na lang their final decision! I do like having both looks para may difference on Church and Reception, but again, it all boils down to her final decision. Whatever makes her happy no? :D Ikaw? You'd do the same?

    1. Would you go for red lips too? :D thanks for the reco!

  10. I agree with you entirely! :) Red lips would be perfect for the reception :D Btw, what blush did you use on her? It may be just me, but I think just a little bit more color on her cheeks would help the look too :D

    Oh and I agree with Sweet, ang you're a correcting and concealing wizard!! hehe

  11. Thanks Denise for the feedback :) In person, there's a tint underneath plus powder blush so it's quite obvious in person! The bride-to-be likes the blush to be like a flush lang! :)

    :D Thanks dear ! If I choose, I'll go for deeper blush, coz..I love blushes! hahahhaa
