Own make-up application preference...

 As much as I wanted to be expert or
 become good when putting make-up on, I juts can't because I don't have the patience that requires to learn step by step. I hate reading tutorials and following instructions is the last thing I would do. I dislike the process, just like going to the Saloon and having my hair or nails done. It's not an everyday use so i thought there is no need for me to learn the proper way. Until lately when someone asked me to be their make-up artist in their upcoming big day? Until now, I still can't believe why? So strange to just ask someone you don't even know, only because my sister is a good friend to her and also because I offer to be my sister very own make-up artist in her upcoming big day. It's just that there is no point of hiring someone if I can do it for her, right? Helping her saving a bit from the costly wedding is like a great gifts already. Apparently, (back to her friend) after looking at my Facebook pictures she decided she like the way I put make-up on. Oh no, this is just a made-up and my own preference when applying make-up. I know basic but not really sure if you call it basic when all you apply are foundation, Bronzer, slight blush-on and most of the time just lip gloss or nude lipsticks and a splash of eyes shadows but often not because an eye liner will just be as great for me. I rarely use red lipstick either, I don't know why but I like it as natural looking as it can be. It's the reason why you rarely see me in red lipstick unless I'm in the mood for it. I also don't think I look good in red lipstick though. Nah, I have always prefer nude or pale ever since.

So, lately I am trying to watch make-up video tutorial at You Tube because of this upcoming special events that I'm going to attend and guess what? Not only I am the make-up artist I am also their photographer. Oh my, I think I put myself too far from this, haha. Pressure is on, the moment I offered my service but I guess she is a dearest sister of mine. I'll do hers but not to her friend. NO! I think it's too much responsibility already if I'll say yes to her friends as well. So, her big day is okay because I know she won't complain or give me hard time if things goes wrong, haha. And, surely whatever make-up I put on her, she'll be happy with it. But of course, I'll make sure she'll be the prettiest woman alive, haha. Ooooooh! Assuming I can do it that great, lol. Anyway, with her face profile I think she'll look lovely with red lipstick and a slightly smokey eyes. This is going to be a day time event so all she need is a light make-up to simply enhance her already pretty face. Yes, she's pretty even without make-up on but of course she would not believe that, as we (women) often not see ourselves pretty unless we have make-up on, right?

                                             
         Smokey eyes with false lashes? Or not? 
Again, I don't use false lashes because it's not very comfortable. But I guess my sister would love to use one. We will decide for it later on.
What do you think about this smokey eye make-up? Would this count as day make-up? Glitters? Not quite sure if it goes with her dress. I think I'll be force to buy a magazine to get more ideas with before that event. I have only 5 weeks to go until that special day.
If things goes wrong then rest-assured the photos will not come up as expected as well. Oh my, this is the pressure I am in at the moment. So, basically I can't sleep thinking about it, haha. Because I want her day to be as special as everyone believe it to be. Not a grand event venues wise but it is special enough to give her that million dollars look. With the hair, I'm thinking the classic up do. Or just let her hair down? Well, I'm sure I'll find better ideas soon. Yes,  I am that excited that's because I know exactly how important it is for a woman to look at their best in their special day. A great make-up contribute so much to the entire look besides the gown and accessories. Yes, I want perfection! Any suggestions?



A very light eye make-up. Simply as it can be:)

You need very little make-up because you are already beautiful. I for one don't want to wear make-up all the time.. when the occasion requires make-up, then so be it. I would say it depends on the time of the event. If it is on the afternoon and heading towards the evening, a light smoky eyes would do and then retouch it when night comes and have it more darker. I have learned you can wear smoky eyes appropriate for day time, something lighter and not too smokey. I don't wear false eyelashes either and never have, but for me when it comes to special event like wedding a false eyelashes would be good, but not way overboard. Watch Michelle Phan on youtube if you haven't already because she makes great make-up tutorials and beauty tips. :)

If I may suggest, I think it's best to do a trial make up before the big day. Document the trial make up so that you will know which specific colors you used. On the big day, you won't have a hard time doing the final make up. =)
