My Mum's Makeup Before And After

Friday, December 12, 2008

Last week, my mum asked me to do the makeup for her for a wedding she would be attending. I was really excited! It's always been like this every time if there's a dinner function, I was asked to do her makeup. Even my sisters, relatives and sometimes friends, they would call me up to do the makeup for them. Well, for you information, I'm not a professional makeup artist by any means. And, I never worked for a cosmetics counter or makeup artistry school. I'm just a makeup-loving junkie who enjoyed and addicted to makeup. I went through a number of stages as I learn and develop. And, I realized that I'm still in the learning stage and need more and more improvements and practices... :-)

I used whatever makeup cosmetics I had in hand. My mum wanted the smokey green eyes look which went nicely with the dress she was wearing that night. So, I decided to keep her face glow just to make sure the skin is hydrated. My mum has a square face shape. I tried to contour her face and change her face shape just to give the illusion of a perfect, symmetrical face. I contoured her sides of jaw and temples, highlighted her centre of nose, centre of cheeks and chin, and blushed on the sides of her cheekbones. In the end, I think she looked so beautiful!
