I'm really excited about this post. I did someone else's makeup for the first time. I asked my best friend Monica or Mon as I call her, if I could do her makeup and she was brave enough to say yes lol. She's my first guinea pig. so before makeup I tell you what I did, here is a little background about her. She's been my friend for 6 years now. We met during freshman year in college. In general, she doesn't really wear makeup. The only makeup you will see her wear is a black eye liner on her upper and lower lash line, a cherry chapstick on her lips and thats it! She has beautiful skin so she doesn't even need makeup.

I created a smoky black eye makeup. I've always wanted to try this on her because I know it would compliment her pretty eyes. It made her eyes look sultry and sexy! For her cheeks, I used my NARS blush in Orgams because it goes great with anything! It's a pretty peachy pink shade with gold specs. I used a very light hand to apply this color because it's so pigmented. And for her lips, I used Mac lip stick in Velvet Teddy which is a natural matte nude shade. The eyes were dramatic so going nude for the lips was the safest way to go.

The finished look after it was blended with a fluffy blending brush. It looks so much better right?
The most difficult thing I had to do was curl her lashes. It took me awhile to curl them because she kept laughing lol. I even pinched her lid by accident lol. Sorry Mon ;P
Thank you so much for stopping by!
