Smokey Eyes with Maquillage Professionnel

07 May 2013

Previously in Krissy's Quest for Personal Development, we learned how to do evening make-up. Last Saturday, well, let's just say we turned it up a notch. For our second session sitting in to Maquillage Professionnel's Personal Make-up Module, we learned how to do smokey eyes!

Just some of the products we used
I've learned that using the right brushes is VERY important in creating the perfect look. Sometimes good techniques rely not only in your skills but also in using the proper tools. That being said, I need a pro make-up brush set in my life.
What follows is a series of selfies ha ha. Don't worry, this is just to show you what I learned from the class and applied to myself and I made sure I used the least number of photos needed ;)

We started with the base, and with that I meant applying primer and foundation (and if needed, concealer) with medium to full coverage. As what any make-up tutorial will tell you, when going with smokey eyes, make sure to keep the rest of your face looking simple - thus the light blush and coral lipstick. By the way, I really, really, really love the MakeUp ForEver lipstick I am wearing here. Another color to find a dupe for because we don't have MUFE here anymore!

Now comes the eyes. I'm really glad I learned a super easy, fool-proof way for smokey eyes because it is something I've always wanted to learn and attempted to do but I always end up looking like someone punched me in the eyes! I wish I can teach you how to do it but if you really want to learn, you'd have to enroll in Maquillage Professionnel and take up the Personal Make-Up Module as well. ;)

You can choose any color you want for your eyeshadow so long as it's a dark color. I chose green. Aaand here's the result:

Our instructor Miss Mikee to me:
"Hay naku, kung ganyan ang lashes ko, wala na akong ka-proble-problema sa buhay."
Putting falsies on is optional. I did not put them on anymore because I was wearing my glasses and neglected to bring my contacts since I was in a rush that morning.

And this, my friends, is why I am on full make-up when I went to line up for more than six hours for Manix Abrera's autograph. ^_^

For next Saturday's session we will learn about Professional Photography Make-up! I don't know if I'll have another lifestyle shoot done soon but I'm looking forward to learning how to do this! How about you, if you will enroll in a make-up class, what specific technique would you like to learn? ♥
