It was early this week when one of our young ladies in church sent an SMS about not being ready for prom. Rachel dear is practically left to fend for herself and without resources to rent a gown or a decent cocktail dress, let alone have her makeup done in a salon, she was basically cramming for the upcoming once in a lifetime party most students in middle school look forward to. I told her to meet me a couple of hours before her prom in church. I was able to rummage and find some nice dresses she could pick out from. I also told her I can do her makeup. The bubbly Rachel came to church ready to be fixed up. Here are her before and after pictures.
Now I don’t exactly do makeup services professionally. But I’m actually pleased on how Rachel looked after I was done with her makeup. Here are the products that I used:
Foundation: Dr. Jart Blemish Base Water Fuse, MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NC25
Eye Primer: e.l.f.
Concealer: Palladio Herbal Concealer Medium
Waterproof Eyeliner: e.l.f.
Waterproof Mascara: e.l.f.
Lip Stain and Gloss: e.l.f.
Yes, e.l.f. is my favorite drugstore brand. When I was doing Rachel’s makeup, Tintin (one of my girls in church) asked if my makeup kit is sponsored by e.l.f. Here’s much I can say, if you are going for e.l.f., there’s hardly any need for sponsoring. They practically have the most affordable makeup that are, for the most part, of the quality kind.

I was happily surprised that my little black dress fits Rachel perfectly. I almost cannot believe that dress fit me last year! Although I forgot the cocktail ring that looks like one of those fab scott kay engagement rings to set the look, she was fine and actually loves her simple but elegant look.
