Artistic Makeup 3rd Class: Prime/No Makeup Look

Hey everyone! Valentines is just around the corner! I see everyone doing valentines looks and I unfortunately cant do one, because my face is freaking swelled up like a chipmunk! How very timely eh? hahaha Went to the dentist a few days ago and he told me I needed a root canal (yeek!) I didnt want my face to swell so I had it done and surprise surprise I look like Manny Pacquiao LOL ugh I hate it.

Im posting about last weeks class since classes this week are cancelled AGAIN. We were supposed to have 3 classes this week to make way for our OJT for U.P's Live Aids 2010: CIRCUSMARYOSEP! on the 19th, 20th and the 21st. But LCI cancelled our classes every night for each of the day (I wish they just cancelled the whole week's scheduled classes and told us about it earlier) because of some aircon maintenance issue. blahh.

But anyway, last week we had a class and our very first evaluation! We needed to do the prepping, the base and the eyebrows. We had 2 weeks to practice since the week before our class, LCI cancelled the scheduled class. I said I would, but I procrastinated and then forgot haha. I wanted a challenge, so I brought in my friend Betty La Fea to model....

Kidding! haha This is my friend Michie, she dressed up as Betty La Fea for Halloween. She doesnt have crazy bushy eyebrows, the opposite actually. She has fine eyebrow hair and it isnt groomed. So I thought it would be nice to practice on someone who didnt have nice eyebrows. And boy was I right, it was a challenge! haha

Forgot to take a before picture so I stole a picture of her on her facebook profile LOL with very little makeup on. Michie is naturally pretty and wears very little makeup so I thought it would be fun to put makeup on her and fix her brows. Our topic for the day (Prime/No Makeup Look) was perfect for her too since I cant imagine her going through all the trouble of having any more than 2 colors of eyeshadows to blend herself haha.

With foundation and concealer on

After grooming her eyebrows and tweaking it for a couple of times I finally got
it to look more even and to frame her face better =)
Dont mind the white spots
on her cheeks I was concealing some blemishes and was too
excited to take a picture haha

In class we are taught step by step. Here she is with just half of the face done.
We were given 15 minutes to do the other side of the face and then we
were evaluated again (yes, 2 evaluations in one meeting!)

All done! I love how the prime look turned out on her, very simple, pretty and polished.

After evaluation we were asked to choose accessories from the Fashion Accessory making
class to have our models wear. They were going to be photographed
by students from the Photography class.

Posing. Yee! Model! haha =)

The Final look! =)
Seriously happy with how it turned out. She looks so fresh and pretty
I had to crop myself out of this picture because I wasnt LOL

What I used on Michie:
- Mix of RCMA Shinto III and VOV #3 for foundation
- M.A.C Charcoal Brown for her eyebrows
- Cinema Secrets kit #2 concealer
- RCMA Invisible Setting Powder
- Fanny Serrano Powder in Chino
- Coastal Scents Blush Palette (Middle pure pink color)
- Stila Kajal eyeliner in onyx for the upper lashline (not a good idea to use on someone with small eyes - kept smudging on the lower waterline and undereye area)
- M.A.C. Fibrerich Mascara
- M.A.C. Femme Fi (Lid), M.A.C. Cork (Crease), M.A.C. Vanilla (Highlight)
- Fanny Serrano Lipstick in Coco Copper

Happy Valentines Everyone!
