Summer is here which means it’s time for new graduate to start their career! Besides an intensive phone pre-screening questions, the next part is the in-person meeting. Of course, getting the personal meeting is a major step so don’t stree yourself out. Have a good night’s sleep and takes lots of deep breathe. How you present yourself is crucial. Wearing a neat and clean blouse (best if it’s a simple color top) with a pair of business slacks or nicely trimmed A-lin skirt and a fitting blazer will help with the first impression. Now we got the outfit down to the T. What about your makeup?
The main point we want to strive for is to have a clean, neat and professional appearance. For complexion, I used Charlotte Tilbury Foundation (#4)
The foundation has a sheer to medium coverage. Since we are going for a light and natural look, heavy concealer is unnecessary unless you just underwent a serious zip-popping session the night before (LOL).
Then choose a loose powder for setting your foundation. Preferably, a loose powder with some level of coverage (medium to high) and finalize with a pearly loose powder to create a sheen and light shimmer on the complexion. So you are “glowing”.
For blush, I used JS #04
Just lightly brush on the apples of your cheeks and you’re done.
Then I used Visee for eye shadow makeup. Mainly nude colors with a dark brown liner on the lash line.
Finish with mascara then we are done!
Clean, simple and you are ready to go!
Best of luck!
A traditional bridal case over the weekend ~ :3 didn’t take too many photos because myself and another assistant were trying to do 5 makeups in 2.5 hours. The theme was dramatic. The girls wanted a vintage and dramatic look. I did smokey eyes on all of them with fancy eye lashes. I used Silver and Grey for her smokey eye so that it’s still shimmering but not overly dark for a day-look.
The dress is pastel pink so I don’t want to go too dark. Then I used YSL Glossy Satin #13 for her lips and create a pout-y Angelina Jolie sexy lips (muah).
The color is very wearable and it suits almost any skin tones. I used the same color for the mom and she loved it. The bride had a nude smokey eye while each of the bridesmaid has the same smokey style but just in a different color.
Congrats to the adorable couple and I wish them forever happiness!

I thought about doing a “Red – pinkish“ eye shadow just for the special occasion. At first, the plan was to make it look extremely red or a neon pink- but that would be a challenge to even step out the door.
Because I am going out later so I decided to tone it down so it’s wearable for a day-out, date night or just a girls’ date together. The nice subtle pink hue is sure to catch everyone’s attention.
I was glad to be the Makeup Artist for the Access TV Show on Sunday.
I find that after I have made my own website, I have been more diligent and more active in my daily makeup routine (so I have more to share with you!)
Are your lashes ready for the beach and the hot summer?
