Halloween Hair & Makeup Gig: KC Tan & Arvin Tan

Last October 29, 2011 I made up siblings KC Tan & Arvin Tan for their Halloween party. KC, whom I fondly call “Achi KC” was a Princess Leia/Jedi character. She was already in her outfit when I arrived and we started with the makeover.


Starting off with the makeup:

  1. I primed her face using the Base Magique Primer from L’Oreal—I made sure I didn’t skip this part because I knew they will be partying all night long and I didn’t want her makeup to fade away in a few hours.
  2. I concealed necessary areas using The LuLu Makeup concealer.
  3. Moving on to foundation, I used the Revlon PhotoReady Makeup in 006 Medium Beige which was perfect for her skin color. I knew they would be taking a lot of photos, and the photochromatic pigments in the foundation would be a great help.
  4. I set her makeup with the cake powder from Maybelline for an even finish.
  5. I contoured her cheekbones using Fanny Serrano’s Two-Way Cake in Rajah.
  6. For her blush, I used The Body Shop’s Roseflower blush.
  7. I did her brows using the Easy Brow Pencil from Etude House. Her brows barely needed any shaping because they were actually the most perfect brows I have ever worked on!
  8. Moving on to the eyes, I gave her a sultry, smoky look. I used a light brown on the inner thirds of the lids and MAC’s Beauty Marked on the outer V.
  9. I highlighted the inner corners of her eyes with a shimmering gold eyeshadow to make her look more awake.
  10. I proceeded with lining her eyes using Fanny Serrano’s gel liner.
  11. She didn’t need any faux lashes because she had adorable lash extensions on.
  12. I contoured her nose bridge just a bit for a polished look
  13. I highlighted the high points of her face using Etude House’s Secret Beam Highlighter.
  14. Lastly, I used Maybelline’s Angel Rose lip color on her lips and topped it off with a clear gloss from ELF.

Prior to clipping on her Princess Leia ears (?) I colored her hair using this adorable colored hairspray from Orly (Achi KC bought it especially for that night’s event). I totally loved the outcome. It looked very beautiful! After coloring, we put on the Princess Leia ears (?) and we were done.



Next is [Ahia] Arvin Tan, Achi KC’s brother who dressed up as an Xmen/Star Wars Inspired character . I actually used his makeup! We worked using the gorgeous concealer from Kryolan (which blew me away, really) The coverage was perfect! Although, his face didn’t need much concealing, anyway. After that, I finished off with the loose powder which is also from Kryolan. I cotoured his face a bit for a polished finish.



Here are some photos from their event; all credits go to Achi KC who gave me permission to post these photos:


More shots using my iPhone 4 because I forgot to bring my camera’s battery!


A huge thanks to the Tan family for being so welcoming!

Stay tuned for a more in-depth and non-beauty related post about this day on my personal blog! Coming right up.
