Hello dears, how have you all been?
This week’s post on #beautyfriday is both a post and a rant. Lol.
So, my friend got married recently, and I gave in to pressure and allowed my face to be beat professionally. Here are a few things I observed and few tips I have to give;
1. If you are the bride (or the celebrant); have a makeup trial prior to your big day so you agree a look with the mua and ensure he/she sticks to it.
Agree brands and products, read product labels, ensure you are comfortable with what will be used on your face.
2. Never let the MUA touch your face with dirty hands or dirty instruments.
This might sound like a given, but you will be amazed how a lot of things slip through the cracks in the rush against time. Ensure all hands, brushes and applicators are clean and if something accidentally drops in the floor; please ensure it’s cleaned before it comes in contact with your face (And the hand that picks it as well).
3. Work with a makeup artist who respects time; not one who will spend all day making you up and leaving you rushing to catch-up.
4. Now this is for the mua: dear Mua, unless it’s a makeover don’t change the client’s look. You are meant to accent and highlight not change. Don’t have your client looking so different from herself such that she is unrecognizable. Lol!
People said I looked years older!
You be the judge.
And who says I have to have pro-makeup? Why can’t I just #diy?
