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 ---
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
