I'm used to my daily basic no makeup look which I'm fine with really. I think it's because I feel if I wore makeup daily, then my face would depend on it to look presentable and I wouldn't be able to create a dramatic look that makes me feel all glammed up for special occasions. More then all else, I much prefer a low maintenance morning routine. However, when a formal event comes up... it gives me the opportunity to put on makeup and have a total different look.
For the Hollywood after Oscar show, I branched out of my comfort zone by experimenting with some foundation, face powder, mascara, eye shadow, lip liner and blush... I opted not to apply the liquid eyeliner I bought, for I don't have a steady hand to apply it and I did not want to poke my eye out and look like a one eyed pirate. Especially, after staying up 24 hours for the show.
I need lessons on how to do the professional look on my own. Although the ladies at the MAC store once showed me, I still couldn't do it. Oh well, I just have to make time to watch some Youtube videos as has been suggested to me by a couple of friends.
Anyhow, this is the look I ended up with. How is my amateur makeup application? What do you think? Any tips? It's okay, I won't be hurt. Just be nice. ;)
