The MA provided me many useful makeup tips which I would like to share with you.
- She told me that since I have brown eyes, I should use brown mascara and brown liner, which she used in the above eye makeup. According to her, brown will emphasize and enlarge my brown eyes more than black. This surprised me and also the SAs. I've always been told I should use black everything since it's darker and will draw more attention to the eyes! I guess the SAs have been using themselves as the basis for recommendation and didn't notice my eye or skin colours at all.
- The MA said to I should use a lipliner because my lips are thin and very pale. It would help to bring more emphasis to my lips. So those of you with pale and thin lips, would find this a useful tip. I didn't buy the Coffret Dor liner, it's too expensive, perhaps I'll find a cheaper substitute from Fasio or Majolica.
- I was also told to use eyebrow powder at the start of the brow and only use a pencil to lengthen the end of the brow. This was because the MA felt I have strong upper features and the lighter touch of eyebrow powder is better. I think when she said strong, she probably meant prominent? I don't know.
Additional story, she kept saying I look like Narumi Yasuda, who is "a beautiful star" ... Erm??!!!??? Hahaha everyone there (ie. the SAs and me) didn't know who was Narumi Yasuda. I was in particular extremely incredulous and laughing so hard because I really doubted I looked like a beautiful actress. I think the MA felt she must convince me, so she wrote a note and told me to check it. Here's her note, she's so cute! Her handwriting is so cute too. Anyway I checked, there are very few photos of Narumi Yasuda online but from what I saw, Narumi Yasuda is muuuuch prettier than I can possibly be!! I am nowhere close to her! I don't have a narrow face like her nor is my nose as small and sharp. Maybe the MA thought my eyes were similar? But in any case I felt the MA's advice were all very useful and I took note of all of it. I hope you find these tips of some use, especially if you have brown eyes and "strong" cheeks/eyes/brows. I certainly felt I learnt something, especially how the MA madeup my eyes, even my son felt I looked really nice that day. Keke. © Copyright. All rights reserved.
