The usual steps will be,
Primer – Foundation – whatever you want to do your face
Then, eye brow pencil, eye shadow,eyelash curler, mascara, eyeliner…
If I’m going to put on make up, the first thing I do after eyebrow pencil is… put on the mascara. Then baru curl. Sigh sigh sigh. No thanks to my heavily Chinese Foochow sepet eyes with dwarf-like eyelash length, I have to do things differently.
If I would want to curl my eyelash first, it will result in me… kiap-ing my heavy eyelids. I have lost count how many times I ter-kiap my eye lids with the eyelash curler so now I am using the cheap Watson heated one. I must elongate my eyelash first, baru can curl. Else, curl what curl?
Reason why I do my eyes first before my face (super tabalik from most people) is because, I have damn clumsy hands and always end up dirtying my face, with bits and pieces of eye shadow powder, or eyeliner bits falling on my face. So, no point lah, if I put on powder on my face first.. in the end also have to remove and reapply.
Super envy experts (in my eyes) like Maurina, and even Atul is catching up on me I think. Remember that time when I travelled with Mau, she only needs like 5 minutes to get it done! Gorgeous sparkling eyes~!
Once Sol and I decided to have a make up slumber party (ya, just the two of us, a bit lame I know. But who cares? As long as we had fun!) we put make up on each other and when it’s Soly’s turn, she was stuck and went.. “I DUNNO HOW TO DO YOUR EYES! IT’S SO DIFFERENT FROM MINE!”
I always thought it’s a lot easier to put make up on big double-eyelid eyes because they already have super good condition to start with. And my eyes, macam A4 paper, so blank and flat!
I know, everyone says smokey eyes will look good on me, but… tak kan I everyday smokey. Day time also smokey later my students think I kana tumbuk ah. Hahahhaha.
