Sunday, I did a sweet sixteen makeup party. It was a really fun experience. It’s good to see young girls interested in makeup, and just being interested in beauty period.
There were about 6-7 people including the birthday girl. I did a full-face on the birthday gil, and she was used as my demo for the rest of the girls at the party. She wanted to learn how to do a neutral, everyday look, a smokey eye, a cat eye, and a fun, colorful, dramatic look.
I first taught them about basic makeup application. Then I went on to teach them a neutral look, that they can easily transform into an evening smokey eye. The last look was the colorful dramatic look. I took the birthday girl’s a step further by adding a cut crease. The rest were too intimidated to try it out, but they did get the hang of the other stuff. They also learned how to apply a strip lash, which, surprisingly, they got.
Overall, it was a great experience. I am definitely open to doing it again but for a smaller group unless I have an assistant. After running around, helping everyone; doing corrections, answering individual questions, and explaining other things, I was exhausted! But, I had fun! That’s what counts.
