Today I did makeup for one of my titas (aunt) and my mom’s longtime friend, Tita Marnie. She’s known me since I was in my terrible twos. (I used to blame my mom’s friends for pushing me even though I just tripped on my own! So when I say terrible, I mean terrible!)
Tita Marnie’s makeup is limited to concealer and her tools to an eyelash curler so I got excited when she said she wanted a real dramatic look. I kept her foundation light as she had very clear skin and we both aren’t fans of the caked up face.
Although I bet she thought I was pulling her leg, her eyes are every makeup artist’s dream canvas. There was plenty of eyelid space to paint shadow on and her eyes were extremely deep set! Perfect for dramatic eyes!
I gave her smokey gray eyes using Urban Decay’s Creep and Gunmetal both from the Naked Palette and Uzi (a shimmery silver) from the Book of Shadows III (UD <3 NYC) to brighten the inner corners of her eyes. On her cheeks, I used MAC’s Well Dressed, a nice light pink and YSL Rouge Volupte in Beige Charnel (1) on her lips.
See what I said about her eyes?? They’re the perfect shape!
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take a photo of her whole look, complete with the dress and all! Let me update that later when she posts photos!
Tita Marnie, you should start learning to put on makeup already! Sayang your Shu Uemura brushes and your made-for-makeup eyes!
