My first attempt at doing someone's makeup

Nathalie asked me to do a little work on her with some makeup and I GLADLY jumped at the opportunity!! I've only done eye shadow and blush for other people, never attempted a full face!
Check out what I used:

So, since I really suck at writing, I prefer for the pictures to do all the talking for me. 
I really hope she liked it and that she'll let me try again, and again! Now before I start getting "mean" comments, I do admit I'm not very good, I know the e/s is uneven, I didn't set the concealer right and I wished I could do foundation (didn't have her shade), BUT, I do not claim to be a pro or anything of the sort. 

Sorry for being MIA guys, to be honest, work has never been so busy for me (in my life). 
I swear I have a million gazillion pics and reviews to post, but the time just doesn't permit! Enough with complaints, I just wanted to apologize to my lovely and gorgeous readers! 

BTW - We're supposed to get another mini blizzard, 16-40 inches of snow is forecasted, it starts Friday and ends Saturday night, hopefully the hubby will let me get on my mac to write more posts! I don't mind the snow so much, we had 6 inches a couple days ago, 8-12 inches this past Saturday and the Dec 19th storm was crazy, I was in my house I think for 3 or 4 days straight! I say bring it on, we haven't had a winter like this in forever!

YOU DID A FABULOUS JOB, GIRLIE! Seriously! I've only applied make-up to someone once, and that was to my little sister back in the 90s. I am so impressed! The colors you picked look fantastic on her!

I missed chatting with ya today! I was trying to clean up a bit and get ready for the weekend! How was your day? (I should probably just e-mail you. LOL!)

Gorgeous Make up

Miss P said...

Mean comments? What the heck are you talking about?! You did a great job!! Give yourself some credit! I haven't really done anyone else's makeup either besides my little sister. She's going to be in a pageant next week and she's trusting me to do her makeup...wish me luck!

And I've been slacking on my blog too because of the time I get home, I'm exhausted.

You did a great job!!
She is so pretty

Lorien BeautyLove said...

love it! you did a really good job! I suck at doing other peoples makeup, especially foundation! I can never colour match! I only know whats good for me, and sometimes I even get that wrong lol

Top job :) x

sugarmizbunni said...

niki said...

You did a great job!

ellinelle said... have done very good job ..Your friend looks so gorgeous ..I love how the eyes look so much - fab .. have a nice day darlin : )))

Maria said...

I think you did a great job!! The foundation does look a little lighter than she is in the before picture but you can't help that - why would you have foundations in shades other than your own if you're not a pro? But her skin looks a lot more even and I love the eyes and lips.

booboo said...

wow! i think you did an amazing job! she looks so pretty :)

Rai said...

You did a great job!

Nattie Linda said...

Aww my bestie did a great job on my face! Thanks for the makeover! It was fun...damn I'm kinda embarrassed about the before picture though lol I look tired and a hot mess. My mom loved the makeover too haha she didn't want me to take it off but I had to before going to bed :( Let me know if you ever want to do it again! Your the best!
xoxo .::Nattie Linda::.

You know what, don't even worry about mean comments. This make-up stuff is all for fun and to be perfectly honest, the look is fabulous...what is the name of the purple e/s?

Kittynail said...

J-Ezzy said...

OOO EMMMEEE GEEEEE - You ladies are too generous towards me!! I don't deserve such wonderful followers *tear* THANK YOU ALL!!!!

@ Sharlene Kay - Thanks for noticing!
@ MZ.CYN.DEZ - I will keep practicing as long as people let me!
@ Kate Gene - THANKS! ROFL!!! (LMBBO!!!) You did, chica! Oh yeah, I didn't count my sis, my POOR POOR sister, I can't believe she entrusted me to use liquid eyeliner on her waterline, BAD BAD move, lol. I used to many colors, I picked most of them, Nat picked the rest! I'll get to your email in a few ;-) I've been cleaning like a mad lady prepping for the Super Bowl. You da bomb!
@ PiinkCupcakes - Thanks!
@ The Beauty In Me - Thanks!!
@ Miss P - Ahhh, Good luck, hun! I hope you take pics!!! And thank you, I was never the stylish one, so I'm used to the criticism (no joke, lol) I was the one who NEVER learned to match b/c my mom refused to teach me since she didn't want me to become infatuated with looks and fashion (she's a cosmetologist), sorry mom, I fell in love with it all!
I've only posted b/c I've been home from work (I took half a day off on Monday and let our early Fri then the snow didn't let me go anywhere) I hope to see more posts from you :D
@ D's Beauty Corner - She IS pretty!! Thanks!
@ Lorien BeautyLove - Color match is HARD, I know what color she is though, I picked her foundation about a year ago and she is still using it! I just didn't have her color in my collection :( I had to use Laura Geller's Universal "Balance N Brighten". Thanks, hun!
@ sugarmizbunni - Thanks!!!! Oh yes, it feels really great, I just want people to feel really good about it when I'm done (and during the application).
@ niki - Thanks!
@ ellinelle - Thanks!!!! You too, hun!
@ Maria - Thanks!!! The closeup eyeshadow pic shows her actual color, the flash made her "white". The lipstick was hard to pic for her, it's amazing how different lip colors can look on other skin tones!
@ booboo - Thanks, sweetie!!!
@ Rai - Thanks, babe!!!!
@ Nattie Linda - THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LETTING ME DO YOUR MAKEUP!!!! I am willing to do it WHENEVER! We need to go to Nordies MAC counter to get your skin tone and get you some MAC foundation :) (or Revlon CS or PR). <3 <3 <3
@ blkprinces87 - Thank you, hun!!!
@ Tammy - Thanks, babe!!! I will DEF tell her for you :) She's been giving her hair a break recently (no heat) and she said her hair feels soooo much better now!
@ Danielle - Thank you, D!!!
@ JxExSxSxIxCxA - THANK YOU!!!! It IS all for fun! The purple e/s is NYX Deep Purple and the Dark grey with glitter is NYX Gunmetal :) All part of a haul that I haven't posted yet...
@ Kittynail - Thanks, hun!!!
@ CosmoFreakaLeak - THANK YOU!!!!!
@ Mary007 - You too are willing to let me?!?!! There are too many crazies out there! I kid, I kid!! Any day!!! Thanks!

Again, all of you are awesome and I couldn't ask for better followers!!
