Basic makeup turned fab.

By September 8, 2015January 12th, 201740 Comments

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.

Basic Look





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.







I must say I felt like a beeyuteeful bride.
