A while ago, I bought a Groupon deal on a makeup-class. It was a two-hour class for 10USD, so it was super cheap. I didn’t realise until I was there, that it was a beginner class. We were 6 people in the class, and we had to bring our own makeup to do a natural daily makeup.
The teacher was the owner. I was very excited to get some tips from a Hong Kong makeup artist as I usually only watch western makeup artists on youtube. I got to try out a few things that I haven’t tried before.
We practically went through the standard process: foundation, loose powder, natural eye shadow and blending, eyeliner, mascara, false lashes, blush and lips. But there were a few things that I haven’t tried before.
The first thing was to only apply foundation on the center-part of the face. It requires that the foundation is an exact match though. But the point is to achieve a lighter feeling on the face as you’re wearing less foundation. It’s actually a good idea, but I still think it feels a little weird as I’m not used to it.
And then we also learned to apply false lashes (only a small piece) under the eye lashes. I haven’t tried it before and thought it sounded quite scary, but gave it a try anyway. I applied it and it went on ok, but I found myself scratching my eyes as they were a little irritated, and the lashes fell off later on the day. Maybe I just need a little getting use to and some practise. The immediate result, though, was really nice and natural.
I forgot to take pictures from that day, so I’ve recreated the look with the tips. Today, I forgot to only apply foundation on the center of the face though.
I’m sorry for the bad photo quality(hence the angry face haha). The battery of my camera went flat, so tried with both back and front camera on my phone.
The finished look:
Close up on the eyeliner and eyelashes I did. We were told to line the upper waterline(something I’m not incredibly fond of doing) and add false lashes under the eye lashes – to achieve a natural look.
Were you familiar with adding false lashe under the eyelashes???
