I did Qiang’s makeup for her graduation.
The makeup for graduation should look natural no matter in person or in a photo.
The ceremony was in the afternoon.
I needed to finish Qiang and her mum’s makeup in the morning.
Therefore, I also prepared some refreshments because the time we need for makeup might delay lunch.
Below are details of Qiang’s makeup:
Since makeup for graduation should look really nature, the base needed to be light and flawless.
The night before her graduation, I asked Qiang and her mum to apply masks to help skin hold sufficient water.
Their skin condition was really good on that day-neither dry skin nor spots.
The good skin condition resulted from the masks and their born beauty: )
Because their good skin condition, I did not apply too much moisturizer.
I applied primer directly after toner.
(Korean and Japanese girls always have flawless base because primer is very important process in their makeup)
To achieve a light and flawless base, I applied really little amount of foundation.
To make the little amount of foundation evenly on your face, you must use foundation brush and sponge.
UK’s weather is not hot and humid, so makeup in UK can last longer than in tropical countries.
After little amount of powder, the base was finished: )
///Eyebrows & Eyes
The shape and current of Qiang’s eyebrows are naturally really beautiful.
I just needed to shave extra hair and apply eyebrow powder along with the shape.
The last step of brushing away extra powder was also very important for perfect eyebrows.
Qiang already had double-fold eyelids, but I still applied tapes on her eyelids to make the folds more obvious.
This way can make her eyes look bigger and more charming.
For eye shadows, I chose light brown and used light pink as base.
There are very often “colours that seem so difficult to apply” in eye shadow boxes such as light pink and light blue. Those rare and low-saturation colours are very often base colour for eye shadows. With those base colours, colours you apply afterwards will be more vivid.
Although the result I wanted to achieve was a natural look, eyes still need false lashes to become more fascinating.
I chose one pair with hair overlapping and longer ends because Qiang’s eye widths were slightly narrow.
This type of false lashes can help the eyes look wider and bigger.
Lots of brides who prefer “a natural look” would avoid wearing false lashes. On the contrary, to choose false lashes with adequate length and density of hair will make your eyes look fascinating and natural.
After applying eyeliner and filling out water lines, I also highlight “silkworm area” underneath eyes.
Here came the finished eyes : )
Cannot tell the difference between puffiness or silkworm area of eyes? If you want to find the right place of “silkworm area”, just smile in front of a mirror, the rising area is the place you want to highlight.
I highlighted the C area beneath eyes and the T area across forehead and nose.
The distance between Qiang’s two eyes was a bit wide.
In order to shorten the distance, I highlighted the upper part of her nose and created shadows next to her nose.
Eyebrow powder and shadowing power both can be used for shadowing. However, touch of your brush should be gentle and light, or your will accidently create “a masked palm civet.”
With a gentle touch of blusher, the contour was done.
I first applied concealer on Qiang’s lips, and I chose a colour very close to fuchsia for a young and lovely look.
Her lip peak was highlighted with glittering beige eye colour.
Lovely lips were finished: )
Glittering beige or white colour in eye shadow box is very good tool to make your lips’ shape more perfect.
Qiang’s total look was done!
