So yesterday I was checking my FB and I was talking to my new found friends [Amay & Metchelle] and I decided to make a blog about my make ups. I am not a make up artist [expensive] basically I am just a Mass Comm student and since it is required to look good in front of the camera.
Here are my make ups I accumulated ever since :-D
Legend: [♥] my favorites…
Our skin type varies from one person to another that’s why what I put on my face would not be applicable to someone else. The general rule we should all follow is to keep our face clean and moisturized. But the climate here in the Philippines is very humid we find it hard to choose the right products for us. If your skin is oily stay away from liquid/mousse/cream type of product it will make your face more oily. Instead use powder based foundation, it can mattify the whole face. Of course do not forget to moisturize first so it won’t appear cakey. Sunscreen even if there’s no sun, UVB is still present even if the sun is hiding behind the clouds. Make up base, this is optional if you want your foundation to stay longer.
For my face I use : Celeteque Mosturizer / Avon Refined White Make up Base in Mint / Revlon Photoready Liquid Foundation [♥] / San-San pot concealer in Olive / In2it dual foundation [♥] CLEANSE : Glycolic Products I got from my Derma :-p my skin is semi oily/dry / Sunblock of course SPF 30 / Maybelline Make up remover
Of course I don’t use this all together. It depends on the coverage that I want.
Never be lazy in cleaning your face, don’t sleep without removing what you put. You’ve been out all day Foundation + Pollution? Gross! haha
CONCEALER TIP: Wand concealer is best to use for under eye circles, Pot Concealers are for obvious blemish. It should be one shade darker than your skin tone.
This is what I bought using my credit card online. I love this matte 78 vanity palette from Doll Face. I am not using this everyday because it takes me years before finishing the look that I want. I am not encouraging you guys to purchase this. I usually use this if I am doing friend’s make up. [♥]
EYESHADOW TIP: The lightest shade is use for highlight and the darker shade for contour. You can always mix and match it depends on your mood.
I have : Doll Face 78 Vanity Palette / Avon Eyeshadow Quad in Sandy Corals [♥] and Fresh Cut greens / ELF Eyeshadow quad in Poison Ivy / Allue Eyeshadow Quad / Shawill 12 Shimmer Eyeshadow [♥] LINERS/BROW PENCILS: Cover girl perfect blend brow pencil / Revlon Color Stay brow enhancer / ELF under eye concealer and highlighter [♥] / ELF Eye Primer / ELF eyeliner in Pearly white / Nichido Kohl Mineral Eye liner / ELF Waterproof eye liner pen / ELF glimmersticks / Maybelline hyper diamonds metallic liquid liner / EB Cream pot eye liner MASCARAS : ELF Defining & Lengthening Mascara / Revlon Lash Fantasy Mascara / Revlon Double Twist Mascara
I love playing with my eyes a lot because it can portray different looks.
If you accentuated your eyes make your lips and cheeks bland, it is like Smokey eyes: nude lips / Red lips : simple eye make up. Conceal your dark circles to make your eye make up vibrant.
I am not a blush fan cause I am having break outs if I use a dirty brush or whatever. I can go out without wearing blush. :-)
I have : Allue gel blush [♥] / ELF Face Whip / San San cheek color / Avon Simply Pretty blush / kabuki brush from Hong Kong
Oooh I just love lip color I spend most of money buying different colors, I already threw some of them.
Above is my latest collection, I am loving matte lipstick now though my lips are often dry I still love the dewy effect on my lips. :-)
LIPSTICK: EB Matte in Skin / EB Matte in Storm [♥] / Sophie J’adore lipstick in Cotton Peach [♥] / Revlon Colorstay Lipstick in Lilac [♥] / EB Extreme Lip Color in 704 / EB Matte in Off beat pink [♥] GLOSS & LINER : Nichido Lip Liner in Rosette / Avon Trendline Lip liner in Brownie / Nivea Pinkish Boost / Maybelline Lip Balm / Nivea Lip Care / Avon Glazewear Liquid lip color / Loreal 6H Glamshine in Sweet Forever [♥] / Mary Kay Signature Nourishine in Cream & Sugar / In2it liquid lip color in vertigo [♥]
Keep your lips hydrated by drinking plenty of liquids. Licking your lips would make it dry faster. Ex foliate using honey and sugar or using an old kiddie toothbrush.
I am targeting to have a HOT PINK lipstick, I saw one from Etude House but it is so expensive. haha
To perfect application you need tools to apply. Though you can use your fingers also basic set of brushes will help your make up application better.
Recently I bought this Charm Travel Set Pro. I love this because of its packaging (the crocodile skin pouch) plus the brushes you need are here. Stippling Brush / Powder Brush / Blush Brush / Concealer Brush / Soft Dome Brush / Crease Brush / Contour Brush / Pencil Brush / Angled Brush / Liner Brush / Brow Brush / Retractable Liner
I don’t use this if I am doing a friend’s face. That’s a rule NEVER share your sponges and brushes even though she’s your best friend, her microbes are not your microbes it may lead to break outs.
Wash your brushes once a week. Germs can easily grow whenever, wherever!
The set back of this Charm Brushes is that the Eyeshadow brush sucks, I have to buy a ‘C’ brush from ELF [♥] Other brusher were purchase individually.
For additional appeal I have my false eyelashes and brow stencil.
You can have as much make up as you want, just don’t splurge on Mascara and Lip Gloss because it expires immediately. Instead invest on Foundation and Concealer a flawless face is enough for your everyday routine, a picture ready face. Use make up to accentuate your features, LESS is MORE. As long as you feel good about yourself that inner glow of beauty will sure come out. EAT RIGHT – SLEEP WELL – EXERCISE avoid STRESS.
♥♥We are all beautiful♥♥
