Makeup Class 101 on V DAY!!!

Hello Divas,

I am back after being quite for quite some times… Today, I am sharing with you a few pics that were taken during a makeup class that I organized on Valentine’s day at my house.

The goal of this makeup class was to teach some of my makeup techniques and give a few tips to women of color when it comes to makeup application. The session took place in the afternoon because I wanted to take full advantage of the beautiful sun of Dakar…

My first model below was my dear friend Shoon, she has medium to light complexion with a beautiful bone structure. I first did a very natural day look and then showed how this day look could be transformed in more sophisticated night look by adding just one or 2 colors.

 

ALL MAC unless specified

SHOON’s Day Look:

FACE

Purple eyes…using pigments

I got a new hair cut last week and felt like adorning my eyes done with bright colors…I used a pigment that I bought during my trip to NY last month…Some of you asked me how they could use pigments, so this is right on time!

makeup3108.jpg

Pigments are a loose form of high pigmented eyeshadows. They can be very messy if you do not know how to use them but here are a few hints:

  • Use a flat brush like MAC # 242
  • Appy a base first on the lid(otherwise it will not stay on). My favorite are the cream color base or the MAC eye paint.
  • Put a little bit of powder on the lid of the jar and work from there.
  • Apply the powder using your 242 brush by dabbing and gently putting pressure on your lid to make sure that the color pops out. Add more color if you feel like it is not bright enough. Remember that the eye color base you use can significantly enhance the final color, so the brighter the eye color base, the brighter the pigment color.

I am using on this picture:

FACE

Foundation: Mineralize Satin Finish liquid NW 45

Powder: Mineralize skinfinish natural Deep Dark

Blush: Slave to love and Raizin

EYES

Eyebrows: my usual spiked mixed with some show-off brow set

Eye base: Cream color base Full Fuchsia

Eyelid: Pigment Cool Pink

Crease: Trax and Nocturnelle

Crease outer corner: Beauty Marked

Highlighter: Concealer NW 35 and a touch of Vanilla Pigment eyeshadow

Eyeliner: Blacktrack and Smolder

Lashes: Mac # 7 (my lashes look dusty because I “smartly” decided to apply more of the pigment eyeshadow after putting them on…never do this as all the pigment will fall on your lashes…always use your mascara when you are sure that you are done with your eyeshadow)

LIPS

Velvettela lipliner with Florabundance lipgloss (make sure you blend the liner with the lipgloss to avoid that horrible dark line around your lips…)
