my second client was Jessica, a 14 year old girl who's gonna celebrate her 'quinceanera' on April 9th... we did her trial makeup for the event last Saturday.... 

Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel
MUFE HD primer - #6
Maybelline Fit Me foundation - 220
Revlon PhotoReady foundation - 008 Golden Beige
Bobbi Brown corrector - Light Bisque
MAC Studio Sculpt concealer - NC30
Maybelline Fit Me powder - 220
NARS blush - Desire
NYC bronzer - Sunny
Urban Decay setting spray - All Nighter
Urban Decay primer potion
88 eyeshadow palette - Matte (pinks & brown)
88 eyeshadow palette - Shimmer (pinks & black)
Rimmel London soft kohl eyeliner pencil - Jet Black
MAC fluidline - Blacktrack
CoverGirl LashBlast mascara - Very Black
Wet n Wild ultimate brow kit - Ash Brown
Carmex lip balm
MAC lipstick - Angel
MAC lipgloss - Babied

Jessica wanted her eyes fierce.... she said she loves thick eyeliners & stuff like that....  

I decided to use pinks (even though it might look too matchy matchy with her dress) because I don't wanna take away that innocent, playful look of her age... I don't want her to mature instantly because of her makeup.... 

additional info on the client:
- Jessica is the typical 14 year old who's so shy & sweet... I love how she represents that stage of  being cute & innocent....  
- she loves makeup
- she wants to be a photographer
- she's a typical teenager who's really conscious about her looks... didn't like her freckles, her dimples(why??? I would love to have dimples! I think they're adorable!) just because she gets teased about them, but what I loved about her was that despite all those things she didn't like about her face, atleast she knows one feature she really loves - her lips!! I think that is awesome!! 
- & most importantly, she likes watching Jersey Shore like me!!! yay!! she loves Snookie... =) **fist pumps*** LOL

in action.... 

looking crappy right next to Jessica... dooood!! I double booked on my first day... two gigs on the same day?!!? who wouldn't look like doodoo??? 

one reason why I'm enjoying this whole experience is because I meet people & get to know them in different levels... I think doing what I love to do is now just a plus, I realized that the thing I enjoy mostly is the people I meet.... I know it might be too soon to say coz this is just my second client & all but I am just lovin it!!! =)
