Another Wedding?

Hi everyone, I was looking through my friend's facebook and I saw some photos from her wedding in 2008. She had asked me if I could do their makeup but I really wasn't confident at that time so I said ' Thank You but No Thanks'. I did do my cousin's makeup she was a bridesmaid because I was comfortable with her face since I've done her makeup before. It's horrifying doing an stranger's makeup. There's a certain limit of time to do their makeup and it needs to be flawless. You would need to figure out their skin type, foundation, concealer, eyeshadow placement, and eyebrows! Eyebrows are a biggie for me so I took my time on it.

I can honestly say that doing an official gig this summer really made myself confident in my makeup skills. I'm not perfect but I do see some improvement.

So I took some pictures from my friend's facebook and here I am sharing it with you folks. My cousin is the girl using the tiffany blue gown. I forgot what colors I had used on her since it has been a long time.

Hey! I am a new follower:) I know how you feel about doing makeup on someone- it's not as easy as they think! Especially if they are relying on you to make them look beautiful on the most important day of their life!

I totally feel the same thing as you about doing other people's stuff! A few weeks ago my friend saw pics that I took for my blogs etc and she wanted those pics done but I wasn't sure if I can do it since I've never shot other people before, I told her that I will but I'm currently really busy lol we'll see how long that holds up :S
