Makeup/ Pretty Doll Look

•August 27, 2012 • Leave a Comment

This look is a common request.
Makeup that makes you look like a B.J.D.(also known as a Japanese Anime Doll), without stepping into evening-wear style.
This look is very soft, with dramatic results.
Have fun!


1)    Apply moisturizer(oil free is best).  Let it set in.
2)    Apply moisturizer a second time.  Let it set in.
3)    Apply moisturizer a third time.
Let it set, make sure your skin is nice and smooth and dry.

4)    Take a concealer (a shade or two lighter than your skin tone) and
apply under eyes,  on your eye lids,  and then your “T-Zone”,  and
then blend.
Repeat this a second time.

5)    Apply powder (Neutral/Matte  Shade, that suits your skin tone)
in a soft, dabbing motion, in order to blend a soft look,
and set the concealer.  Constant blending is the magic!

6)    Apply a soft pink tone on your cheeks.  Make sure you
sweep up to your hair line.

7)    EYE shadows;
Apply a soft pink eye shadow over the whole lid of your eye
(be careful not to touch your brow though)
Apply a redish brown color of eye shadow to the outer
corner of your eyes.
Apply a red/brown colored lip liner as an eyeliner.
Though whole top and half of your bottom eye lid
(outer corner to about the center of your eye/waterline).
Blend. (you may have to apply twice- your preference)
Take the same lip liner(that you have been using as eye liner)
and draw along your crease line, and blend as well.
(The more/darker you apply the more dramatic
the eye depth appearance will be)

8)    Apply mascara to upper and lower lashes,
then apply false eyelashes.

9)    Now for bronzer (Matte. Shiny is not a good idea),
but not for tanning,  to create warm shadows.
Apply on the sides of your nose(to get a slimmer nose like a doll)
with your fingers, then apply with a powder brush lightly
to the sides of your face and cheeks.

10)    Apply a brown lip liner and blend in. Stroke a red/pink lip liner
within your lines and blend entirely again.
(You should not be able to see a strong line when done blending)
Apply a lip gloss (pink or soft red is best).

Want to look cute, tidy, and/or pretty, in a simple way?
Pony’s and braid designs are in this year, and a
simple was to feel good in school.
This selection are designs commonly asked for and adored by my
clients,their classmates, co-workers,
family, and friends.
Though these are quick, effortless, and fun,
the first time you try will have bloopers and frustrations I am sure…
so take time to practice a little on days that you are more carefree.
*Special thanks to all those who sent some of these images in and made accessible upon the internet, much appreciated, I was proud to add them amongst my own.*
Have a great back to school!
Study hard and have fun!

Hair | How to.  I know it is in Russian but the drawings are pretty clear.

A special request was made for a “how to” post on
the classic “Mermaid braid”.
It was then I discovered a brilliant visual example upon the internet.
I thank the person who designed this. Though it is originally in Russian, the visual is nice and clear.
