My attempt of being a MUA

I played makeup artist last December for my two aunts..My sister was showing her ELLANA MMU stash to our aunts (selling actually hehe) and when they want some demo on how to apply the powders, they asked me to teach them since they know I love MMU..so here's me playing make up artist using Ellana Minerals products :)

Here's my Tita Armi..She loves glowing makeup but still full in coverage so I layered the premium foundie then applied glows on top of her blush..since it's getting dark already, I applied a black eyeliner and red lips :)
- Ellana Premium foundation in Hazelnut Latte
- Ellana White Chocolate Sheer Velvet finishing powder
- Ellana Blush in Heaven
- Dayna's Glow in Violet Vesper
- Ellana lip color in Sensual
- Ellana MPM in Ethereal as liner

Here's my Ninang Mayet..she loves fresh natural look..so I just applied 2 layers of premium foundie to give her a flawless base then applied matte blush..I skipped the glows coz she doesn't like shimmer very much..and a reddish lip to complete the look :)

- Ellana Premium foundation in Hazelnut Latte
- Ellana White Chocolate Sheer Velvet finishing powder
- Ellana Blush in Bliss
- Ellana lip color in Sensual


I used the new HD finishing powder of Ellana to both my aunts so that I can test its photogenic effect..and my experiment is a success..it does give a beautiful finish :)

Here's an FOTD from me..I used the following to achieve this look :)

FACE:
- Meow Flawless Feline foundie mix
- Dayna's Mineral Foundie in G2
- Ellana Sheer Velvet FP (sandwich method)
- Meow Cat Got Your Tongue blush
- Dayna's Minerals Violet Vesper Glow

EYES:
- MAC paintpot in painterly
- Lumiere e/s in Turquoise (base)
- Clinique e/s in Beach Plum (on crease)
- MUFE star powder in 902 (all over)
- MAC e/s in Unorthodoz (highlight)
- Ellana e/s in Ethereal (upper lashline)
- Clarins purple eyeliner (lower lashline)

LIPS:
- Venus&Mars emu oil lip balm
- Ellana lip color in Sensual

What do you think about my work? Is it okay? What can I still do to improve the looks I did? thanx!! Ciao!

^ thanx nikki! I want to ask, how do you keep your liner from smudging on the undereyes? that's why I don't put dark colored liners on the lower lashline coz they make me like a racoon hehe :)
