Makeover for Alyssa

 I know I'm lacking up on posts but I hope to make it up to all of you with this wonderful makeover. ;)

Two Fridays ago, my niece Alyssa once again asked for my help to give her a makeover as she was joining a pageant for school. This girl's ultra talented in dancing and bagged the Best in Talent award.
I'm such a proud Tita! When I last glammed her up months ago for their grad ball, she was named "Star of the Night"(blog here) Certified award-winning beauty and talent! Hihi!
Read more and check out her photos and some of the products I used on her...

It used to be that Alyssa was too shy about her hair as she was teased by her peers because it's this frizzy. But I remember always telling her that this will be her trademark and she should be proud and just rock it. I've seen this kind of hair in hundreds of Beyonce's videos, may it be on her or on her dancers. It's just too hot to not notice! ;)
As she later embraced her lovely locks, it indeed became her trademark and added more impact to her dancing skills, I dare say. hihi! :D
We did a couple of hairstyles and I taught her a few ones that time as I could not join her during the pageant. I knew she'd do well and she really did. ;)

Her skin I believe because of all the stress you get in college has a few breakouts. To spot conceal those dark spots and also lighten and brighten up her under eyes, I used my ever trusted Encara BB Cream. I then custom-mixed a few foundations to add dimension to her face . Contoured and set her face with Fanny Serrano 2-way powder in Chino, Organza and Rajah.
Smokey brown shadows for her eyes' crease, smoked out black liner at the roots of her lashes,  highlighted inner eye corners and beautifully groomed brows. This gives an instant pop of sexiness that's not too over-powering. I used UD eyeshadow primer potion, 26 colors BH palette for the browns, Tropez highlighting color, Nichido black kohl pencil for her eyes. For her brows, I used my currently trusted combo: AVON Ultra luxury brow definer in Dark Brown and In2it brow powder trio and finished it off with Etude House Color my brows in #2.
TO complete this sophisticated look, I finished it up by lining her lips using AVON Ultra Luxury lip liner in Wild Berry and filled them in with Jordana lipstick in Radiant Red.

And here are some photos from the event...
