Application Techniques By Lisa Her / Photography by Thay Yang
Every master was once a disaster. This explains how I was exactly 11 years ago before the start of my professional makeup artist career. At that time, my skin was still youthful, nonetheless, I was a new Mom and rarely wore makeup just because I didn't have the time and could care less about how I looked in front of my newborn. Besides, a "no makeup" face was so much more convenient since I was a 24 hour nursing machine and didn't want to contaminate any of my precious baby's milk.
Eventually, after a 6 month "stay-at-home-cation," I had to go back to work so sharpening up on my makeup application was very helpful so I can look somewhat "fresh" when I have a face to face conversation with my clients. So, for you Mom's that are looking for some simple tips on how to "doll up" your eyes, or if you are a newbie at doing your own makeup, or if you just want to learn an easier way to create a classic glamour look, then read on. I think you will enjoy the techniques and the step-by-step pictures in this tutorial. You can definitely make the look more intense with liquid or gel liner, however, I wanted to show how you can achieve the same look in a softer version and with the use of an "easier to use" product. Have fun learning something new and enjoy!
