I wanted to share some pics with you of the sweet 16 makeover I did recently. First off, our birthday girl was having pictures taken for her invitations.
She had this picture as her makeup inspiration:
We discussed this picture and toned it down a bit to make it more age appropriate. In the end we went for a smokey cat eye minus the harsh lines and lashes on the bottom. We focused on making her skin smooth since like many teenagers she was facing breakout issues. After which, we added a nude lip and voila, her Kim K inspired look!
I'm really liking this picture of Kim K, would you guys be interested in seeing a tutorial?
For our birthday girl, I used:
EYES-blacktrack fluidline-carbon e/s-vanilla e/s-smolder eye kohl
-lashes-MAC splashproof mascara
-Cinema Secrets foundation
-MUFE camouflage palette
-definitive sculpting powder
-NARS albatross highlighter
LIPS-stripdown lip liner
This was the "clubbing look". Ahhh to be young again :)
She was going for a flapper's look here...her party theme was Casino Royale reminiscent of the Al Capone days.
And here is the flyer for her bday party.
I remember my sweet sixteen. My two friends and I split a party and it was so pitiful, lol. My mom wouldn't let me wear anything "sexy" like I wanted...we rented a huge hall that stayed nearly emply, lol. Oh I wish I had a makeup artist for my big day!
I was also hired to do her makeup for the big party. I showed up and the place was decorated really cute! They had poker tables and real poker dealers everywhere...they had lights and a videographer...casino decor everywhere. For her entertainment, she had a male dance team perform and the rapper "Shawy Lo". I didn't stay for that part.
She wanted the same look, smokey eyes and nude lips. She didn't want it as bold as the pictures so I toned it down and added some MAC reflects pearl glitter to make it more fun.
Till next time, Ciao bellas!
