Metallic Eye Makeup for Dinner

Monday, December 7, 2009

Few weeks ago, a friend of mine asked me to do the makeup for her for a wedding she would be attending. I was really excited and was asked to do her makeup. I called it Metallic eye makeup because I used MAC pigment just to add the shimmer to her eyes. Since she has acne skin, so what I did was I tried to cover it up with the three acne hiding weapons, namely, concealer, foundation and finishing powder with a brush. I tried not to apply too much of foundation, this is to avoid having a caked look to her makeup. I also use tissue paper to even and smooth out the skin to get a better coverage. She looks great in the end.

Here's some shots I took:

Here's What I Used:

MAC Strobe Cream (moisturizer)

Looks gorgeous and a little too heavy to me...depends on the party you are attending to...the sheen otherwise looks very good.
