Making Over Mel

Hey Beautiful! As you have probably all gathered by now, I have a passion for beauty products and although I like to put makeup on my own face, I prefer to apply it on other people. Since I was a teenager, I’ve always done people’s makeup. I think it all started when I bribed my young Cousins so that I could give them a “makeover”. I look back and think “oh my God” because I would apply light sapphire eyeshadows and bright pink lips. Fortunately, my taste for makeup has evolved since then. Anyway, my friend Mel here in Oz recently asked me if I would do my makeup before an engagement party that we both attended. Of course I said yes and I wanted to share some photos with you so that you can see my skills.

I realize that I am not a makeup artist, but I still think that I did a fairly demanding job for an Amateur. Speaking of makeup artists, I’m really starting to think that this is the career I should be reading about. Even though I like journalism, I don’t think I would appreciate it if I wasn’t a beauty journalist. I can’t help but think that this is unlikely due to the high competition, so I think my next Option might be a makeup artist? After all, I have a lot of fun applying makeup (hence the Blog) and I imagine that I would really like to work with it every day.

As you can see in the photos above, I put a selection of makeup and brushes on my dad’s kitchen table and started to make Mel glamorous. To be honest, she looks good without makeup anyway, so I just improved her natural features. I know you will read these messages, so please let me take pictures of your naked face to squirt on the Internet. As you can see, I opted for a smoky/golden brown eye, peach cheeks and a shiny coral lip. Mel was wearing a coral top for the party, so she wanted something to congratulate him on. I think the light brown/peach look really worked well with her outfit and the gold eyeshadow really highlighted her light green eyes well.

I also applied some eyelashes to really “pop” your eyes (what a terrible word!). Mel was like an excited little girl while I was doing her makeup and she couldn’t wait to see the finished results. When she finally looked in the mirror, she absolutely loved him and it was such a feeling to know that I had done good to someone. She couldn’t stop looking at herself in the mirror and it was very flattering that she loved him so much. At the party, she received endless compliments on her makeup and I was over the moon. She even got a really paid makeup job because one of her friends liked it so much that she wants her to do it. How exciting is that? I really enjoyed putting on makeup, seeing the difference before and after and making someone feel really great. In my opinion, An obvious success.
