Been trying to get back in blogging. I have such a loooooong list of things to blog about, especially the ones about makeup makeovers. So for now, let me share this one that I did recently.
I always feel honored when people I don't personally know, contact me for bookings. Last March 26, Ginelle, a 4th year high-school graduate from Cavite, asked me to do her hair and makeup for her Graduation Ball.
Ginelle requested for a simple look. Her skin type is combination to dry. I prepped her face with a water-based moisturizer and applied L'oreal base magique primer. I used Encara BB Cream as her makeup base/foundation, mixed it with some concealer for her undereyes and on some red spots. I used neutral shades on her eyes with a hint of purple that was used on the corner of her eyes to give more depth. I applied a thicker than usual black liquid liner to make her eyes more round, plus a natural pair of false lashes after 2 coats of mascara.
I asked her if I could groom and shape her brows but she said that their school, being very conservative, prohibits the girls to pluck their brows. What I did instead was to use a brow powder with an angled brush and filled in and shaped it for a more defined but natural look. On her cheeks, I used a peachy pink blush. Then, I liner her lips and applied a rose pink lip color. =)
To give her a youthful and classy look I curled the ends of her hair and styled it on a side-swept. I also did a little teasing at the crown area of her hair to add a little volume.
Once we were done, a family friend/photographer came by to take her photos. Her parents wanted to keepsake a souvenir photo from their daughter's special moment. I love love love her dress and shoes! =)
Ginelle's lovely parents. =) They were both present to personally bring her to school. Her dad even filed a leave from work. What a sweet family!
