Joanna contacted me not long ago, and asked if I could do a special event makeup for her. She is attending her niece’s christening. It has been a while since I have seen her. One of the most thing I love about her is her positive bubbly attitude. It’s so infectious.
Joanna is one of the students that I had the pleasure of teaching the Certificate II in Makeup at one of the school in Hurstville. So this is such a treat for me seeing her again and doing her makeup.
For this special event makeup, she wanted her eyes to be the main feature. We decided to do a soft bronze smokey eye makeup look as it is during the day time. In additional it also goes well with her beautiful champagne coloured dress. For the lashes we opted for a natural wispy looking lashes. The DW lashes from Modelrock is one of my favourite and the best natural looking wispy lashes. It suits pretty much every type of eye shape. For her lips, we decided to avoid the nude colours and went for something fresh to add a little bit of colour. MAC Lustering was the perfect candidate. It also have the semi-matt finish which add a more polish look.
I also suggested to tweaked her brows a little bit. The spacing between the brows are quite narrow based on her eye shape and spacing. By adjusting the space between the brows, it gave her an instant highlight around her eyes area and brightened up her face and eliminate bad shadows which are quite unflattering.
Here are some of the images of Joanna’s special event makeup. She looked amazing! I just loved her reaction when she finally saw the end result. Later on that day, I received a thank you message and saying that she have never felt so beautiful.
From one makeup artist to another , Thank you Joanna for allowing and trusting me in creating this look. 🙂
