Make Up School Exercise #2 - The Prime Look (pic heavy)

It was a long and very fun day spent at school. We spent the first hour putting the base of the makeup up to the eye shadow, from what we learned in the last exercise. Everyone was on their toes since it was our first evaluation. It was soooo fun, after that we proceeded to our next exercise which is the Prime Look.

The prime look is the most basic of all basics when it comes to full makeup application. This is also called the 'No makeup look,' 'Natural Look' or 'Bridal'. This look uses the most simplest of products, with just using 2 shades of Natural eye shadow, 1 highlighter, 1 blush, 1 lipstick, eye liner and mascara. Of course all this on top of the base you created.

Here's a photo walk through of what happened. :)

Kathy's Before Photo

Kathy after the first evaluation (Base up to Eyebrows) Still need to do a little work on eye brows though. Practice Practice Practice!!

Me and Kathy while waiting for others' evaluations to finish

Then we did a half of the face in a step-by step lecture with RB, here's how mine looks on Kathy

On the right side is the finished product :)

Once we completed one side of the face, the task now was to be able to repeat the whole process on the other side of the face, but we were timed, we had to accomplish this in 15 minutes! The more pressure part is, that right after this came our 2nd evaluation! Yes that's right 2 evaluations in 1 Day!!

Here's the final look :)

By this time amidst all the pressure in the time limit and making sure both eyes and both sides of the face was even, I was a happy happy girl. :) When RB came over to evaluate my work, she took a 2 seconder look at Kathy then said EXCELLENT and gave me all 5's. I was shocked and I wanted to cry!! I swear it felt so good all the hard work reaps its rewards. I thanked RB so much and then we proceeded to the photo shoot area where some Photography students were having an exercise. They took pictures of our models with some accessories they brought along. I guess some exercise for their class. :)

Here's some of Kathy's behind the scenes images from that:
