101 in 1001 Win: Take a Make Up Class

As a part of my 101 in 1001 bucket list, I went to a make-up artistry class at the Bello Salon in my hometown. The class was really fun and the lady helping us with our make-up was named Christy. She was really nice and helpful. The class was small with only 4 people (there was two of us at first). One girl got an age appropriate make-up and I got the smoky eye. I had to get used to the look, but I felt I looked like a clown at first, but it grew on me and I'm going to try to mimic the look with different colors.

(Ignorance note: Our make-up artist even does hair, Black hair. I know this sounds a little stupid of me, but I didn't think White hair artists did Black hair. In my hometown, they did, but they did a horrible job because it would be frizzy and never hold up. However, it looks like this lady knows what she's doing. I'm hoping to go there for touch ups in between my original hairdresser(I like her because she does good work and I get a discount). I'm definitely going to go to her to get my hair dyed (if it's allowed where I work).) 

Now to commence to camwhoring!

I really like this eye makeup, it makes me look like I'm 17, instead of 14 (even though I'll be 22 in October).  To get this look(results may vary because I'm no expert and I couldn't really see what she was doing):
  1. Using a dark eyeliner, cover 1/4 of the eyelid.
  2. Take the colors you want to add and put them in from dark to light. (she used black, plum, and white on me). 
  3. Next, you start with the dark color, tap off then press the powder onto your eyelid, then sweep and blend.  
  4. Use the second lightest color (this would be the plum for me) and press it on to your brow bone, then sweep and blend. If you mess up, just layer the darkest color and blend. 
  5. Use the lightest color and press the white against the under side of your eye brow and blend.
I'm probably going to make time to do this style more often once I get some contacts and the right supplies.

Do you have any make-up tips that you want to divulge? Share them in the comments.
