FOTD: The Wedding, Smokey Browns

So the past weekend I went to a wedding and I did my cousin's makeup because she was one of the bridesmaid. Originally, I was asked by the bride if I could do the makeup of the bride and the bridemaids but it would be like my first big gig and although I have like every single color in the rainbrow for eyeshadows the only foundation I have is one to match my own skin. I really didn't want to screw up her day either so I actually recommended her some MUA from Mac that I know does a good job. So my cousin who I've done makeup for before asked me to do hers so I did!

***The scenery pictures above was taken at the reception. It was at a hotel and on the luau grounds. Beyond the palm trees was the Pacific Ocean, it was a really beautiful HOT day:)

Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 in NC 43 (#190)
Studio Fix in NC43 (#150)
Espresso, brows (Smashbox #12)
Refined Bronze (#129)
MSF, New Vegas (#187)

UDPP, all over lid (clean ring finger)
Soft Ochre paint pot, lid (#242)
Next to Nothing, inner half of lid (#242)
Satin Taupe, Outer half of lid (#242)
Showstopper, Crease (#217)
Ricepaper, Highlighter (#213)
Smoking, Liner for upper and lower lashes (#219)
Vanilla, Tearduct (#219)
False Eyelashes

Fleshpot l/s
Saplicious l/g

**I used an equal amount of moisturizer to tone down the foundation and make it a bit more sheer. My cousin is noticeably a lot paler than me...I would guess her to be a NC35 and I'm an NC 43. Her face had a healthy glow like she just came from the beach especially since I had use New Vegas on her. Majority of the eyeshadows that I used on her is from the Smoking Eyes Quad that was released from Smoke Signals. I heart that quad:)***

So her makeup did last ..645am till 11pm with no creasing! She had take off her false eyelashes because it was annoying her.

omg girl. i feel the EXACT same way about doing a wedding gig. i seriously have all the eyeshadows i will ever need plus everything else EXCEPT i only have my shades of foundation. and i don't think i'm quite good at matching people's foundation yet. but once i do, i'm all set for gigs. lol.
