The makeup that I see done by local makeup artists is so terrible. When I got my makeup done, they didn’t shape my eyebrows, my liner was not smoothly applied or even on both sides, and the way they applied their makeup under my baggy eyes made that part stand out more! It cost around 75$!
Recently, my little sister got her makeup done for her grad. It cost about 50$. She came home with the eyebrow pencil lines on her brows clearly visible. The colour was a bit too dark as well. Her lips were a shiny bright fuchsia colour. Not a nice shiny, like old lady who can’t let go of the 80’s kind of shiny. Her face had no bronzer or blush. No touch of warmth added by the makeup artist. Her eyeliner was uneven and poorly applied. When she came home, I had a lot of work to do! I blended the pencil on her brows and used my powder kit to shape them better. I brushed her pale face ever so lightly with bronzer and blush. I gave her face very light contouring with the bronzer and I changed her lip colour to a nude/light pink matte lipstick which I then layered with light pink sparkly gloss by Lise Watier. (Throwing in a nice brand name there). She has naturally full lips and her pucker looked phenomenal! I evened out her eye liner and winged it a bit more, because she likes that look.
I’m not huge into makeup for myself, but I am actually really good at applying it to others. I don’t even wear makeup everyday. I’m not bragging. (How is that even brag worthy?) I just don’t love makeup too much. I don’t even wing my own liner perfectly haha.
