Hi-Definition Makeup by Donna Santos
Thanks to my very first client and her family who gave their trust in me. I now have my very own makeup station and director’s chair.
I am very new in this business and I have a long way to go to prove myself. I’m just one lucky girl to find someone who trusted me immediately after showing her some of my work. I gave her a trial makeup and as I waited for her reaction while she closely checked on it at the mirror I prayed that I wouldn’t get any bad comments from her. She looked at me and smiled and she uttered the words “you’re hired”. That made my day!
This was my very first serious makeup project. I’m excited, nervous and mixed emotions transpired that day. I was praying that I’ll be able to pull it through. I’m lucky that my model was really nice and we get along immediately after we got introduced.
I used Graftobian HD Glamour Creme Foundation and concealer for her skin coverage because it’s easy to blend and it evened out her skin tone, hide blemishes with light application. I used the Graftobian Tester Box with 48 shades creme & powder eyeshadow which I love since it’s pigmented and lasting for my Avant-Garde look and the Graftobian Bridal Palette Eyeshadow for the bridal makeup. I also mixed green and yellow eyeshadow to a OCC clear lip tar to achieve the color I want for my model’s lip shade which is golden-yellow. NYX jet black gel liner for my avant-garde eyebrow and Ben Nye dark brown cream eyeliner for her upper and lower outer lash line and lower water line.

I I really had fun doing this amazing look. It was my very first avant-garde creation. I just can’t explain how happy I am being able to make my version of a tribal warrior. I requested my hairstylist to make the hair look it’s on fire and when I attached the feather eyelashes which was the last touch to complete the look, I’m surprised with the outcome. The amazon in me suddenly came to life… that’s exactly how I pictured it.
This was the first makeup look I did on Marian. I tried convincing her that we should use a lighter shade of lipstick and. explained that it will suit her age but she insisted it red.
One makeup look but different hairstyle and wardrobe. Done on the same day.
This is Lyn. She wanted a transformation and be totally a different person for her wedding day. She got a lot of pimples on her face and a little discoloration on her skin specially on the side of the lips, nose and under her eyes. I used Graftobian for the foundation and of course the most important thing, I used the corrector and color wheel to hide the redness on her face.
Here is the outcome of her makeover. I asked her to pose for me. As the makeup artist I’m pleased with the foundation coverage. I can see that she’s flawless and really glowing.
I’m an aspiring makeup artist exploring the world of beauty and fashion. I recently got hooked with makeup and beauty. I noticed that at my age I can call myself a late bloomer since I never really got interested with cosmetics and never ever wear makeup even at work. I should have learned the art a long time ago. I decided to enroll myself in a Beauty and Fashion Makeup Academy and discovered that it’s exciting if you paint your masterpiece on a real canvas. Seeing my ideas come to life and transforming an individual from one personality to another is a complete fulfillment. Although it’s not easy I will do my best and master the craft of making people look beautiful. We all love to look pretty. Expressing ourselves through beauty gives us the sense of happiness, self-confidence and freedom. I just want to showcase some of my works.
Feel free to comment.
This was my very first makeup look done in school which is daytime makeup.
As you can see there’s an obvious difference on her eyes, her skin texture and aura.
We were asked in school to do two looks and we get the chance to try it on our models for that day. First look will be Bridal and second look we get to choose from Avant-garde, Glamour or Fashion. This was my Avant-garde trial makeup. I really enjoyed doing this look. I was able to explore more of what makeup can do not only by totally changing the appearance but also on how it increase one’s self-confidence. . What I love doing is covering all the flaws on her face including acne and blemishes by just applying a thin layer of HD Graftobian Foundation (my new best friend).
