Prom Makeup

A few days ago, I woke up to a ringing phone. Big Shock, since I usually dont hear my phone ringing when i'm asleep or wake up because my phone is ringing or the alarm is ringing (even if you call me 15 times - I usually wont hear it LOL) Yes, yes, I sleep like a log.

But anyway, I got a phone call from a friend who was at work, her sister was going to the prom on that day and she didnt want to have her sisters makeup done at a salon or a parlor without her so she asked if I could do it. Theres no denying how much I love makeup and how much more I love doing makeup on others (i've been getting bored with my own face recently haha) so I said yes.



Here is Riz before the whole process. Yes, process. It took me more
than an hour because I wanted to make sure I got everything right. You wouldnt
want to mess someones make up for something as monumental as Prom, you know!



I wish I knew how to put makeup on myself when we went to Prom. We were lucky enough to get a Makeup Artist to do our Makeup for Prom. But I do remember wearing a black and pink gown and the Makeup Artist had applied a blue eyeshadow on me. When I asked why he didnt use a color that was closer to my gown's color, his reply was something along the line that translates to youre not paying me enough for that! ugh. I dont know where in this world, or his world is blue anywhere near complimentary to black or pink. But anyway....


Riz didnt have her dress with her, but I asked what the color was and what it looked like. She said it was black and it was a knee legnth tube top dress. I think Prom Makeup should be fresh looking and light, so instead of going for smokey eyes, I decided to do a sort of pink smokey eyes. Which I will try on myself one of these days haha.



BEFORE and AFTER
(Prom Makeup)


I had fun doing makeup for Riz! We talked about a lot of things related to highschool, which made me wish I was back in Highschool as well! haha =) I also try to learn new things whenever I do makeup. What I learned from this one is how important a primer is when youre doing makeup for someone who has dry skin. A primer would help the foundation stick better to drier skin types.

It was nice to see pictures of her at her prom. She and her sister also said that they did love the Makeup ( I do hope you really did LOL), which was a relief! haha Im more nervous doing makeup on people I know than on strangers. A big thank you to Aki and Riz for trusting me to do the makeup hehe =)
