Basement Academy Beauty Makeup Course Day 8: Graduation Day

Then our graduation day, the time to “bring it on” came…

We were asked to do anything we want to put on our portfolio. I contemplated on whether to do an avant garde or bridal makeup. In the end, I chose to do the latter because that’s what I wanted to do initially as a makeup artist.

Remember my Jessica Simpson look-a-like model for the Smokey eyes topic? She's the same model assigned to me for our finals. Love her! She seemed like a pro to me. I didn't have a hard time doing makeup on her and she's not afraid to pose! :)

L-R (Jeaves Gabiana, me and Cheryl Cabanos). I am happy that I can now call myself a makeup artist.


With my classmates (Nikki, Shen, Stef), Jeave and teach. Miss you all!

This is definitely not my last post about the school because I’m going back for more practice. Yup! You’ve read it right. At Basement Academy, graduation is not the end =). You can still go back and sit in their classes if you want to refresh your knowledge or if you want to practice more for free. You just have to pay the model they’re going to get for you.

That's all! Ciao

wow. i am speechless. i could imagine myself wearing that look on my wedding day (charing like i am 10 thousand years away from that)

but seriously, it's very simple, elegant and the look itself is not heavy to wear (like it doesn't have to match a certain skin tone)
