“Ethereal Moonlight” – Before And After Of My Recent Work

While my MUA website is under construction, I decided to share some of my recent hair and makeup work. You can click on the images to enlarge them.

In June, I had the pleasure of working with Amna, who is truly a natural beauty! But she wanted to really glam it up for her prom.

We decided to go with a shimmery, silver smokey eye, which I refer to as “Ethereal Moonlight” to compliment her dress and her skin tone and to accentuate her naturally gorgeous features like her lips and eyes. The makeup really stood out in photography and was just as stunning in person.

This is also a glamorous look for brides!


The key to good makeup application is that it should look as good in person as it does in all types of photography and lighting. Too little and it will be washed out with flash photography and too much… and it will look overly stark on your face.


Very few people are blessed with naturally symmetrical brows. But if you are not one of those people then I say fake it till you make it!

Whether you have thick brows like Amna’s or especially if you have thinner brows, fill them in for symmetry and to make sure they do not get washed out in photography.

For hair, we decided to go for a simple yet elegant updo which brings attention to and highlights Amna’s stunning long neck, face shape and the deep cut back of the dress.

Hope you guys enjoy the pictures! I will be posting a few more looks by yours truly in the up coming weeks πŸ™‚ .

    • Hi Amber!
      I used Wet n Wild’ “24 Carrot Gold.” It is probably the most drying lipstick colour from their matte line but use some lip butter or balm before applying the lipstick and it should be fine πŸ™‚
      thanks so much for visiting πŸ˜€ and following. I appreciate the support!
