indoors, no flash
I chose a nude lipstick to match with the heavy eye makeup, but later on, she decided she wanted to try a bolder lip color, which she settled for...
Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel
MUFE HD primer - #6
Revlon ColorStay foundation - Rich Tan
Mary K corrector (this was the client's so I don't know what shade it was... she had asked me to try it on her so she knows how to use it)
Benefit bronzer - Hoola
NARS blush - Orgasm
Maybelline NY Dream Matte powder - Medium 3-4 / Honey
Urban Decay setting spray - All Nighter
Urban Decay primer potion
NYX jumbo eye pencil - Milk
88 eyeshadow shimmer palette
88 eyeshadow matte palette (used different shades of lilacs & purples)
MAC fluidline - Blacktrack
CoverGirl LashBlast mascara - Very Black
Wet n Wild ultimate brow kit - Ash Brown
Carmex lip balm
NYX round lipstick - Thalia
MAC lipglass - Viva Glam V
MAC lipstick - Petals & Peacocks
additional notes on the client:
- Michelle has really smooth skin with a few redness & very little blemishes.. the foundation application was really easy...
- I was gonna put falsies on her but didn't need to, as she has thick & long lashes after applying the mascara
- she has nice full lips, it was cool putting lipstick on her.. dang! I wish my lips are full like hers... =(
- Michelle was color matched as a NC42 shade at MAC but said she looks orange with the foundation she has.... I used Revlon ColorStay foundation (for Oily/Combination skin) in Rich Tan on her... I was so scared the foundations I have with me won't match her but luckily, the Rich tan did... the client called a couple of days later asking what foundation I used on her... she thinks it matched her skin perfectly... yay!!!! that made me so happy!! =)
