SOOoooooooooo... this morning... my brother and I went to the mall and while he went shoe & jean shopping.. I headed over to MAC.. where.. I got my makeup did!!!
They said I had to make a $50.00 purchase to get the makeover so I did =). I spent quiet a bit more than that. LOl. Anyway.. It was funny cause when I asked.. it looked as if the artists were debating amongst themselves who was going to do my makeover.. apparently not many of them have worked with Asians that have monolids.. lol the outcome.. They handed me over to a filipino artist =) who I absolutely had a blast with! I sat down.. pretending I didn't know didly squat about makeup.. and I went in barefaced... so loll it was fun! She guided me through the WHOLEEEEEEEEEEEE process.. and of course.. I asked MANY MANY questions. The total time it took for her to do my makeup: 1 hour 15 minutes. WHOAAAAAAA LOL! That's how much I stopped her. HAhAHahhaa.
Ok so anyway..
Here's the look she did on me~

Besides my look.. after I came home.. I decided that well.. it could use a little bit of work.. The look itself is beautiful.. but I thought it would look better if I just added some more of MEEEEEEEEEEEE to it =) So...
WHAT I DID:
-added more contrast to the outer corners to make a more windshield wiper shape (this creates the illusion that I have a wider eye)
-added more texture to balance the contrast
-put on my usual eyeliner (jane creme liner to top followed by my liquid liner)
-anddddddd added some Ardelle lashes
I absolutely loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee it!! What do you guys think?
Some new tips I learned:
-Add some neutral browns slightly above your crease when doing a smokey look.. this helps to create a more subtle.. more beautifully natural blend
-Use a variety of different eyeshadow textures to create more definition and shape. ex) mix a frosty color with a matte color and even a glittery color rather than doing all glitter or all frost or all shimmery
-For a more natural contour use a darker shade powder!
-When you fill in your brows go a few shades lighter
mMmmmmmmmmmmmm I think that's it =)
