Basic makeup turned fab.

I mentioned in my post that went up yesterday, that I have developed a little interest in makeup. Just the basics though. Learning how to fix my eyebrows, what color of foundation and powder fits me…

Proper makeup application and how to blend properly. Maybe when I’m satisfied with my progress, I will consider learning highlighting and contouring.

To this effect, my childhood bff who is also a MUA (Make up artist) is my teacher. She taught me She tried to teach me the basic stuff but I got so lazy on this day and asked her to do it all while I watched. Tsk Tsk Tsk for myself.

I can’t get over this particular lip stain.

Things got pretty interesting as we decided to switch up the look to what she calls ‘an engagement look’. She whipped out her makeup sorcery tools and got to work. With highlights here and contouring there, blush, primers and the works we ended up with a different look which I Loooooooove. To complete the whole look, she even dressed me up in a traditional attire.

  1. The make up is so luvly suits u real good. Especially the dark lips on both pics it’s luvly but not sure it would suit me not gotten dat bold yet to try.

  2. Hi Grace,

    You look even more gorgeous, it’s a pretty sight when make up is used artfully. The MUA did a great job, I love the natural looking eyebrows and the nicely blended eyeshadow. Sleek lipstick in blackcurrant is now on my wish list ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. The basic look is my WoW look- you can tell that I don’t really do the makeup thing. You looked fabulous in every picture, your friend is really good. The engagement look was Super.
