Pin-up Inspired Makeup for Mom

Happy Sunday beautiful people!
As I have mentioned in my previous post, I've been doing lots of makeup makeovers recently, that today I'm sharing with you my client for yesterday. And she's no other than my beautiful mom, Whelma! =)
Mom attended a friend's 25th wedding anniversary at Manila Hotel last night and as usual, I did her hair and makeup. I always here the phrase "proud mom" but hey, this time I'm the proud daughter. Mom looks super gorgeous, I betcha! You need to read more and see the photos for yourself! ;)
This is how my makeup station looked like yesterday. I actually posted this photo on my FB page coz I wanted to immediately share to my siblings (who are not living with us anymore), who just got off my beauty chair. Hihi!
She just had her nails painted red, her purse is red and I believe her shoes was actually red. She just was not able to wear 'em yet when I took the outfit pictures. :D
So, Mom specifically requested for red lips. And being a good daughter, I exclaimed a loud "Sure!" hehe! Since I was imagining a bold red lip for her, I thought of downplaying the emphasis on her eyes. After defining her brows, I applied primer on her lids and just pat a matte light powder foundation on them. I used a medium matte brown shadow and lightly blended it on to her crease to give a subtle contour and slightly lift her hooded eyes. I used black gel liner to achieve an almost pin-up inspired eye look, except the winged lines. I brushed a few coats of my current favorite mascara, the Deer Eyes Volume Mascara. Though mom requested for falsies so I cut a false lash into two and glued them on her outer lashes lines.
Oh and before that, I used my all-time favorite face combo on her... that's Celeteque hydration moisturizer and Encara BB Cream. I mixed a good few foundation to build a little more coverage and then set it with powder. I contoured her face to give it a look with dimension and flushed pink cheeks. And for that eye-catching puckers, I used NYX slim lip liner in Orange and topped it off with Wet 'n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Stoplight Red. That was it and voila! Ultra sexy makeup that I really think, Mom rocked! Don't you agree? :D
Oh and after all that, I sprayed a few sprits of my new love Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting spray. :)
 Mom's outfit for the event. Can you peek a slit? Yes? Yesss....
Doesn't she look gorgeous!? Ohmy! I wish I look this beautiful when I'm her age! Hihihi!
 I actually planned to immediately blog about her makeover right after she left but I thought I'd just wait for the pictures from the event. She and her friends did a dance number during the reception. She said they danced to J.Lo's On the Floor. That's just so cool! :D

Lovely! =)

Mom came home super happy! She look just like when she left, makeup still intact and her lipstick was still full on. I asked her if she did retouch. She said she just blotted her nose and forehead as that's where she usually gets oily a lot. And she loved the lipstick! She said it was still intact even after they ate dinner. Yay! She just very lightly reapplied coz she wanted it brighter. Hehe!

And that's it for today's makeup makeover! What can you say about mom's pin-up inspired makeup? I'd love to know! Mom reads my blog too when she has time. Hehe!
Thank you all for reading! I still got lots of makeovers lined up to post so be sure to visit me again!
