The Candy Girl's Guide to Debuts: Makeup
Celebrating your 18th birthday requires a lot of serious planning. From your dress to the motif and the venue to the souvenirs your guests will be bringing home, there are all these tiny details you need to take care of to make sure your debut will be memorable not just to you but also your family and friends.
Once you've chosen your motif and picked out a dress you'll be twirling around all night in, what comes next? Makeup, of course! Now, it's perfectly fine if you don't want to put any on, but if you're a fan of all things beauty, then we've got the list of makeup trends from MAC's Spring/Summer 2017 presentation to help you figure out your beauty look of the night.
Think natural, barely-there, unfiltered. It's quite different from a no-makeup makeup look because this trend actually uses little to no makeup at all. If you're the lip-and-cheek tint kind of girl, you might want to look into this trend of undone makeup.
Dynamic, vibrant, energetic, happy—just some of the keywords to this look. Think pops of color and graphic lines. If you've got a bubbly personality that you want to express in your makeup, try this trend!
Glow up for real. Think light, gloss, shine, water. For this trend, great skin and impeccable highlight is key. And don't worry about looking like you're ~perspiring~ more than glowing. With just the right amount of gloss, you'll be exuding inner radiance more than I-just-did-a-round-of-spinning sweat.
For the more bohemian, hippie, romantic girls, this trend is right up your alley. It's feminine, sunny, and inspired by the summer season. Like all the trends we've already mentioned, skin plays an important role in this look. Less is truly more.
Which trend are you going to follow when you get your makeup done for your debut? Snap lots of photos and tag us so we can see!

Outdoors Danielle Flestado @artdkf | May 1, 2020 "I miss the outside world. The last time I went outside of our house was on my birthday. We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
