    MxChinca :  Lol following your list would make me want to just throw myself out of the window!  I did do my own makeup and here’s my list:

    powder foundation

    lip gloss (a red shade that is very close to my real lips)

    eye shadow (3 shades, came in a container that told me what to do)

    black mascara

    no blush – my face is naturally ruddy

    ETA – nails were orange, color change to brown if cold (only b/c that was the only orange available where I was taken… first mani/pedi ever).  Downside, it was cold! haha

    umm yeah, done!  And all my pics look absolutely fine – there’s too much fuss and pointlessness in makeup land, IMO.

    Pressed powder


    Matte lipstick

    Lip gloss

    Eye shadow


    That’s it!

    MxChinca :  I think I’ve got the look pretty well down, but thanks! I don’t use liners in my water line, and I’ve already got glitter glue-but I ,too,have  heard that the elf and NYX ones are great!

    I did my own makeup even though I’m not very good at it! It turned out totally fine, and I like the way I look in our non-pro photos. I used the following products:

    Laura Mercier — Oil-free primer (already owned)

    Make Forever HD Liquid Foundation

    Marcelle (drugstore brand) concealer (already owned)

    Kat Von D translucent setting powder

    Becca – highlighter in moonstone

    Josie Maran Watercolour Blush in Poppy (already owned)

    Marcelle (drugstore) Bronzer/contouring powder quad (already owned)

    Urban Decay All-nighter make-up spray

    YSL lip tint & gloss

    Partial synthetic eyelash set

    Synthetic eyelash black mascara (already owned)

    Clinique Pretty Easy liquid eyeliner (already owned)

    impulsive dash of urban decay moondust eyeshadow (already owned)

    Other than the impulsive dash of eyeshadow and eyeliner that was a bit thicker than I had wanted, it was all good! I spent around ~200 CAD which is a lot less than local MUAs charge for trials + day of makeup. Plus I didn’t have to tip which can be a big expense, and I didn’t have to worry about not liking it. I’m happy that I have added a few new makeup products to my routine too! I say go for it!

     Oh, I also got a gel manicure in ‘my vampire is buff’ (OPI) which I absolutely love. 🙂
