Every year around this time I am up to my roots in lashes + concealer and clean out of free time. Weddings, proms, graduations, photo shoots, bridal and fashion shows, you name it… it’s being done in mass numbers during the Spring and Summer months. Because these are some of the most photographed events of people’s lives they of course want to look their best and aren’t willing to take the chance or deal with the DIY stress.
Which is where I come in. And where our post for today begins. My weekend was hectic…so hectic that I ashamed to say I barely took any photos of any of my clients (as if pushing the pic button would’ve made my day so much longer). Anyway, the beauty of doing what you love and loving what you do is that the love is blended with skills and delivers a flawless and happy client.Why is a flawlessly happy client an MUA’s remedy for forgetting or refusing to stop to take pictures? 1 word-SELFIES
That’s right! Client selfies are just as good as testimonials and twice as good with a love not attached.
So, before we see the selfie(s) in question…..Let’s meet our Prom doll!
Noe R. 2k16 Senior in Va Beach, VA.
Noe was a beautiful young lady that who had been looking forward to her prom day since she booked with me. She went with “The Celebrity Doll” service from TiffanyDolls.com new Service Catalog. The great thing about the service catalog is that you can choose any service and customize it to your personal preference. While the Celebrity Doll service featured stacked Strip lashes and an ombre lips Noe wanted a deep contour, a smokey eye, and an otherwise neutral face.
Here’s What we came up with:
*Insert Heart Eyes Emoji*
Before we get to the dets (and they’re coming). Let’s do a quick side by side of the 1st photo and the after photo….
Because Noe wanted a heavy contour and because I didn’t want her to look like she had played in mud with her fair skin. I decided to use a few shades to contour starting with the lighter (red brown) shade and blending in a darker brown. I absolutely loveeeee a matte lip (in case you didn’t know) so I opted for a nude matte lip that would last longer while she danced the night away.
Applied Graftobian HD Glamour Creme Foundation All over face (including eyelids and neck).
Used MAC pro longwear concealer in NC 25 (Highlight) and NW45(Contour) which was set with NYX Translucent powder. Applied Mineralize Skinfinish in Sunpower (bronzer).BH Cosmetics Contour Palette. A blush from BH Cosmetics followed by Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade(Highlight).
AND of course Holy Water…MAC’s Fix Plus Prep & Prime Fluid
NYX lip pencil in Natural (Fill entire lip over exaggerated cupids bow a tad). Filled with a lippie cocktail of NYX Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm & London
Lids: BH Cosmetics 5th Edition Palette & MAC loose pigment in Vanilla in the inner corners
Brows: BH Cosmetics Brow Pro Brow Palette (Black and Brown)
Lashes: Ardell Long Individual Lashes
I was so lucky to have a selfie sufficient client like Noe on such a crazy Saturday!
This…..This is why I do it. I do it for the slayy lol AND for text message from my clients at 8am the next morning… like this one
