My first gig being a "mua"

So it was really crazy, as you can imagine.
I did the make up for the models in a promotional event a few weeks ago. I've been meaning to post about it, but so much has happened in the last few weeks.
the location was really nice, the people were cool, music was pumping, etc....
But before all of that, it was a fiasco getting things together. 

Of course, it was a great learning experience for me and I am now prepared to handle things better the next chance I get! 

The product were were promoting, if you cannot tell are these slippers full of bubbles that are all the rage in Korea and other parts of Asia. And now it has come to Japan!! lol

Yea, at first I thought the bubbles were a bit O.D.... but they have indeed grown on me now. So anyway, I was told to do a "bubble inspired look", to make it dramatic, and colorful....
So here were the looks that I had practiced/played around with a few weeks before the event.
They were "rough drafts" so please don't mind the eyelash that's falling off etc lol!!!

Unfortunately, somehow as with all events, the schedules got a bit mixed up and crazy and I was given about an hour to do a dozen girls' make up!! Luckily the girls were all so helpful and helped out =)

It was fun and I'm definitely thinking about doing this more often!

Here are some pictures from the night!

....setting up.....

these are the slippers!

everyone's having a good time!
