Sketching on Others - Filipina Beauty

Mary Jane is my Filipino friend in Church.  She is one of my friends who is actually not afraid of wearing bright and pretty make up, and always dresses up prettily when we meet.  Many times she performs amazingly and every time she is confident.

Loser Jacq.  Apology: I didn't take many good photographs this time, despite this is the 1st time me creating a look on a non-Chinese model.  The lighting was not good as the Sun was setting, and my lamps aren't forgiving.  Her eyes are quite sensitive, so after applying make up to her (with aircon blowing quite directly to our faces), her eyes were red and watering.  Hence not much good pictures.

Thank you Mary Jane, for sending me some pictures which she took with her own cameras - those look more natural.  Nonetheless, I think this is a remarkable event as I do have the opportunity to practise on different skin tones.  Very good experience!                                                                                 

Cornflower shimmer.  I didn't know what look to go for, and Mary Jane said she wanted to try blue/purple eyes.  So I went ahead and did something that kind of matched her shirt.  I don't have much right products to work on the skin, so I went natural and light.  I paled down the lips with some nude pinkish balm.  *later on, Mary Jane touched up with a brighter pink, which is also very nice in my opinion*
