Hello lovelies! My adventure with makeup continues on from the land of false lashes to reshaped lips. But let’s talk about my short stint as a face model for the talented Ephraim Hunt. So I first saw the ad for face models on their facebook page and didn’t at all expect for me to get chosen. Yippie! Basically it’s really easy; you just have to sit there and they make you pretty, well the makeup students in his class that is.
This week one of his topics was on lips and shaping so I got called in for him to work his magic on my thin lips. Faints! I was so distracted by him working on me that I didn’t get all the steps involved but these are what I remember he did.
- Prep lips with vitamin e lip balm, loads of it to soften the lips
- Highlight around lips
- Line lips with lip liner, blend colour inwards
- Fill in lips with lip colour using a lip brush
- Highlight again
I’m sure I missed some crucial steps but anyway here is how they looked before and after. The only problem with my lips is that I have a prominent V in my cupid’s bow so trying to reshape outside of my natural lip line looks rather obvious. In my case, all I can do is bring the line as close to the edge of my lip shape.
Would you believe I was nervous? I guess having a pro work on me can cause such an effect! But he was so kind and professional and he was a great teacher to his students, guiding them when they were doing their makeovers. After his class room session, they all have to do a complete makeover on the face models! This was my finished look, which was just a simple day time look.
Can you see my reshaped brows? They are still not perfect but way better than what they were before! In case you wondering, his studio is in Diego Martin, so that was like a 2 hour drive for me but totally worth it! Do you want to be a face model too? Well what are you waiting on!

Happy Face Modelling!
