Professional Grade: Twice as Nice

You guys remember the twins…

I did their makeup last Halloween… 
Well, another year has gone by for them, and they wanted me to do their makeup for their birthday. So they popped over the house and told me what they wanted for the big night. Because of our scheduling conflicts, their makeup had to last for 16+ hours. So I used products that I knew would last on them.
Nina wanted bronzed skin, an extreme smokey eye and nude lips.

Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Zero (waterline)
Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara
LIPS
Urban Decay 24/7 Lip Pencil in Heavy

Shalya wanted a soft smoky eye (it was my idea to incorporate navy blue), and a statement pink lip.

I was on standby in case the girls needed touchups. By 9pm they’d had the makeup on about 8 hours, and they said it was still holding with no problem. I sent them with the lip products to make sure they stayed looking fresh.

    wow, it was nice of you to give them the lip products! nice makeup! 🙂

  2. Thanks Issa. Typically, if I know a makeup needs to last for hours and hours, and I can't be there to touch it up, I will send a client with a lip product (and blotting tissues, if necessary) to keep their makeup looking fresh.
