Prom Hair and Makeup: Jenna

Hi Dolls!
I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend. I had the pleasure of glamming up a gorgeous girl for her prom yesterday. I offer reasonable rates and travel around the Inland Empire and LA if you ever need some glam in your life ;).

My First Music Video Makeup Job!

Oh my gosh, dolls, I am so sorry for neglecting this blog. It’s been a crazy busy month for me and I haven’t had time to breathe! I got to do makeup for a music video a few weeks ago and had to share! Our day started at 7 am and the shoot wrapped around 9 pm; it was absolutely exhausting, but I loved every minute of it. I was too busy to take great pictures, but here are some shots from the set:

Photobucket The eye makeup I did for one of the dancers, it was fantasy inspired as well. I didn’t get a shot of her whole face when it was done, we were hurrying them out of makeup.

PhotobucketMakeup madness!

I’ll post the music video and information once it’s released so you can all take a look :). How have you all been?

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2011 Makeup

Hello Beauties!
Happy Monday :). The weekends have been flying by too fast, I think it’s because xmas is coming up and I haven’t done any of my shopping yet. Ah, well, I’ll make it happen ;). As you all know, last week the Victoria’s Secret fashion show aired so I decided to recreate the makeup for all of you. Although the show itself is very glam and over the top, the makeup was pretty subdued and low maintenance.

A few behind the scenes pics from the show. These women are some kind of obnoxiously attractive species of female, it’s really not fair :P.

The look was based around flawless skin, rosy cheeks, strategic highlighting, and lightly defined eyes. Sorry for the pic quality, it was one of those days!
Photobucket The eyes were lined in black with a slight wing on the outer corners, followed up with lots of mascara and groomed brows.

The foundation was buffed in really well and blush was applied right on the apples of cheeks, carried a little higher into the hairline. Lips were a soft, glossy pink.

::Products and application::
Face:
-MUFE HD primer buffed in with a flat top foundation buffer.
-MUFE Matt Velvet + foundation buffed in really well with a flat top foundation buffer. Applied two very thin coats for best coverage.
-MUFE Full Cover concealer on blemishes and under eyes.
-Tarte Smooth Operator translucent powder buffed over foundation.
-MAC Well Dressed and Stunner blushes blended together starting on the apples of the cheeks, carrying the leftover color up along cheekbones to the hairline.
-Cargo bronzer (the lightest shade) blended along hairline, along hollows of cheekbones, and jawline.
-Laura Mercier highlighting powder in Starlight blended on top of cheekbones going up and around brows.

Eyes:
-Revlon Colorstay liquid liner.
-Covergirl Lashblast mascara.

Lips:
-Rimmel 1000 kisses lip liner in Natural.
-MAC Creme Cup lipstick.
-Smashbox Pixel gloss.

What did you think of the show? Let me know if you recreate the look, I’d love to see!

Happy Thursday Lovelies :),
Can you believe December is already here? This year has flown by! I’ve only got three makeup class sessions to go and I’ll be a certified MUA! I’ve loved every minute of this course and I’m super bummed that it’s almost over. I was blessed to get an amazing instructor and a great group of girls to have as classmates. Seriously, I should have done this years ago. As part of the course, we have a final project on the last class day. My instructor has informed us that we’ll be creating an anime/Japanese animation/Harajuku inspired look. Last night, we got to play with paints as a way of getting familiar with the colors and textures. I didn’t quite get to finish my look, but it’s more of a rough draft. I just thought it was cool to share with you guys and dolls :). Pardon the crappy picture quality, all I had was my Blackberry and it is no good for detailed shots.



Thanks for being my model, Geneva! 🙂

What do you think?

Ruby Woo FOTD

Photobucket

Happy Sunday Beauties!
I hope you’re all having a great weekend :). I’m staying in today, trying to rest up before another busy week. Seriously, cannot wait for this semester to be over so I can sleep more than 5 hours a night. The wedding I did makeup for went beautifully and I cant wait to post pics when the photographer gets them back to the bride :). Makeup school is moving along fantastically and I’m a little sad that I only have a month left to go. I’ve been learning so much, and making awesome friends in class–taking the course has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I’ve got business cards printed and now I’m going to start working my butt off to build up a clientele and get my name in the industry. If you’re in Southern California and would like to get glammed up, send me and email and we’ll set something up :). Here’s a 50’s inspired FOTD from yesterday:

Before lipstick. Just did some neutral contouring around the eyes along with some dramatic winged liner and lots of mascara:
