I just wanted to share with you my excitement and nervousness about my coming performance for my dance school. My performance is tomorrow and I have butterflies in my stomach right now. I hope I'll be able to get a good nights rest and tomorrow, not make a fool of myself.
I always fret about my makeup. I'm quite fastidious. I can't seem to get the right groove to apply makeup when there isn't a proper makeup area and lighting. I also wanted to try out some things I am planning to use and see how I would go about applying them in case I make a mess of myself on the actual day itself.
I definitely want to use the Make Up For Ever Holodiam powders. I decided to use the Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in matte black as a base. I do find it difficult to blend because they dry fast so I gave up. Instead I used Laura Mercier's Metallic Creme Eye shadow in Gold to blend. I applied Holodiam Power in No. 304 on top of the Aqua Cream. Then finished off by lining my eyes heavily with a black liner.
This was also the perfect opportunity to play with the glittery gold lashes by Make Up For Ever.
These lashes are very comfortable but I find that it looks odd on me. I can't get used to having it stand out so.
No performance can do without my favourite Aqua Rouge. I used No. 8, a hot spicy red.
These are the makeup items I used.

This is my costume. I hate hunting for costumes, I am very indecisive. After quite a few trial and errors, I finally settled on this sequin top. Sequin tops are meant for skinny gals. I tell you, it emphasizes every bulge.
Thanks for looking.
