Last night, I was playing with my makeup stash and an idea came to me: "Why don't I do a makeup trial on myself?" The thing is, I have a wedding to attend at the end of the month. Before, I just winged it as I went and sometimes it worked. Since this is an important wedding with the bride being my cousin and all, I don't want to embarrass her and myself by wearing some really interesting makeup to her wedding. Let's put it this way: lately, my taste in makeup has changed and I don't wear demure makeup anymore. Everything has to be ostentatious and RuPaul-esque. For a wedding, that would not fly. I need to tone down.
After half an hour of meticulous makeup-ing, I came up with this:
|It was supposed to be a look inspired by Angelina Jolie in the 2012 Golden Globe|
Instead, I looked like my aunt!
Or a successful business woman
Lord have mercy on my makeup!
|This is a slightly better picture but still, I don't like the look|
However, my face looks so slim, though. Which means Hip Hop Abs work, y'all!
|This one probably looks like me the most but look at the shine around my nose.|
This foundation is a no-go for me!
|This silly picture tuned out to be the best :)|
It has that MAC-esque factor similar to that Barbie Loves MAC promo
Again, notice the shine
Secondly, this pair of lashes has to go, too. It is too long and unnatural-looking. I may keep the red lips for fun but we'll see.
From this trial, I am back to square one when it comes to powder and foundation. Since I'm bound to buy a new foundation anyways, this would not be a problem, although my wallet is screaming profanities at me right now :( I have 10 days to come up with a new look and I want to look poise and lady-like this time around.
That's all for now. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. I highly appreciate your inputs.
