Make up Post for Pam :)

21 May

Hey everyone,

I know I already dedicated a site for all my makeup posts but sad to say I still haven’t up the site. Crying (this post will also be published in my BlogSpot and dishysammy)

Oh well my best friend ask me to brainstorm possible makeup look she can wear to a wedding she’ll attend in June. I am killing time yesterday and here’s what I came up with.

IMG_2057a Apologies. I am still on my sleepwear and bed hair. Wink

Here’s the step by step.

  1. Start with a clean face.
  2. Apply Moisturizer.
  3. Apply Makeup Base. I used Avon Solutions Refined White Makeup Base in Green. I like putting makeup base so that my foundation will last the whole day.
  4. Apply Foundation. I used Lola Masquerade Foundation Act II. I used a stippling brush to apply it.
  5. Apply concealer under your eyes, sides of your nose and mouth. I used Revlon Age Defying Spa Concealer in Light Medium.
  6. Apply eyelid primer. I used Elf Eye shadow Primer.
  7. Set everything with powder. I used Revlon Photoready Powder in Natural. You can use any loose powder you have.
  8. Let’s go the the eyes.

IMG_2055a

Apologies for the ugly eyebrows. Embarrassed I used a stencil and turned out to be a disaster. haha

I used the following on my eyes.

  • Revlon Custom Eyes 030
  • Dollface 48 Shimmer Palette
  • Dollface 72 Vanity Palette
  • Revlon Brow Fantasy
  • Revlon Growluscious Mascara
  • Revlon Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
  • Avon Retractable Eyeliner
  • Demi Lashes from Saizen
  1. I applied a matte baby pink from my Dollface 72 Vanity Palette first as base followed by the pink shimmer shade in my Revlon Custom Eyes 030 on my entire lid.
  2. I applied the purple from Revlon Custom Eyes 030 on my outer V bringing the color to my crease.
  3. Blend. Blend. Blend.
  4. I applied the same purple shadow on my lower lash line, only halfway.
  5. I used a matte white shadow to highlight my brow bone while cleaning harsh line from the purple.
  6. I applied a shimmer pink from my Dollface 48 Shimmer Palette to center of my lid, inner corners of my eyes, and to the other half of my lower lash line.
  7. I lined my upper lash line using a liquid eyeliner and lower water line with a brown eyeliner.
  8. I curled my lashes and put my demi lashes.
  9. I defined my brow.

Going back to the face.

  1. Contour  – cheekbone, jaw line, temples, and nose using a matte bronzer. I used Bodyshop Matte Bronzer. Doing a fish face is best to contour your face correctly.
  2. Apply blush on the apples of your cheek. SMILE. I used Nichido Powder Blush in Tomato.
  3. Highlight. I used Elf Bronzer – Innocence.
  4. Apply Lipstick. I used SanSan Shimmer Lipstick 01 for the carnation pink color.

I changed my lip color into fuchsia for variation. I used Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop.

Until my next dolled up session,

Sammy’s purse

14 Apr

My good friend Ferry 《check out Ferry’s blog》 recently posted what’s inside her purse and challenged me to make a similar post.

So tadaaaaa!

image

Here’s the purse I bring with me everyday. I got this one for my last birthday. It’s from Naraya, i like the brand because of the bows. All of their bags have bows, and this is my second bad from the store. The only downfall is that it doesn’t have outside pockets, but overall it can fit my closet.

So let’s dig what’s inside.

image

Looks like a garage bag isn’t it? LOL

image

I have my eyeglasses, my grade is 75/25, I’ve been expose in front of my monitor eight hours a day so I have poor eyesight now. I also have my sunglasses cause I do not go out without wearing one. I got this pair last Christmas, our events coordinator gave to me, it’s from fossil. I love it very much.

Next, we have my…

image

wet tissue, tissue, and feminine wipes. I do not now if I am OC or something but I do use them a lot.

Then my toiletries…

image

this is where I put them, my StarWorld pouch that I got from Fox last March.

image

Here I have my toothbrush, toothpaste (of course), dental floss, all around deodorizer (i don’t use stinky toilets), deodorant, oil blotters, panty liners, extra undies, fem wash, facial wash (in case I am going to sleep somewhere, I have to be prepared), bug spray, and toilet seat spray (which is not in the photo i think)

I am getting embarass now. LOL

Next, my patent purple makeup kit…

image

inside you will see…

image

COUNTER CLOCKWISE in groups
for the lips: avon dewy lip balm, vaseline petroleum tube, watsons mint lip balm, elf lipstick in gypsy, and mac dual ended maximum pro lipstick and lip gloss (again a gift, i love the shade super)
For the eyes: eyelash curler, elf eyeshadow primer, revlon brow fantasy, nichido clear mascara, revlon growlucious mascara, nichido mineral black eyeliner pencil, shawill 12 frosted eyeshadow
For the face: elf corrective concealer, sophie magic blush (this is amazing, it’s just a white cream and when you put on your cheeks it turns pink, amazing), nichido powder blush in tomato, avon 3 in 1 stick in maple syrup

So you will notice I have a lot, most of the time I do not wear them especially if I am running late. But for emergency meetings I got what I need to look, at least, presentable.

Let’s move on to this…

image

My not so organized bag organizer, I have all the essentials here.

You will find my flash drives (i have 10 drives mind you, I carry only 4 with me), ipod shuffle connector, chacha’s usb connector, punch’s headset, and chacha’s headset 【chacha is my smartphone from HTC and punch is my company phone from samsung, they have pet names harhar】

image

next is my hair ties, comb, my cologne, my business card holder, notepad, and my mirror.

Let’s take a look at my cologne and business card closer.

image

my friend from JackTV gave this cologne to me during our fellowship night, it’s from zen zest.

And my business cards, my manager told me to bring this with me all the time.

Next is my wallets (yes wallets) why?

image

I have three kinds. My real wallet is the black one all my identifications are there, i got that from girbaud. Then the purple wallet (gift again from davao), it’s where I put my money of the day, bus tickets, and food receipts. Then lastly, my coin purse that I got from saizen for only 85 pesos. I do not like pulling out my wallet in public utility vehicles, for safety purposes.

image

Look at my graduation photo. Haha I am so skinny!

And membership/discount cards that I got. Hahaha

image

I didn’t know that I have my passport here as well as a ten Hong Kong dollar (I forgot to clean it when I came back perhaps) and discount coupons from Jollibee.

Phew!

I bring my umbrella too, weather is unpredictable.

And lastly

image

my Belle de Jour planner. (I have my pens too)

I also bring a small bag with me where I put my water and packed lunch. Hihi

So that’s it! Consider me a girl scout with the things I carry around with me.

But when I don’t go to work, for example, I will just have my nails done or groceries, I just bring 1/4 of this purse.

I hope you guys enjoyed reading this long post. Let me know what you think of my purse and post below the link if you have posted your purse too. I wanna read it. :)

Until my next time,
Sammy

Makeup Post #3

17 Jan

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…

FACE

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.

EYES

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.

CHEEKS

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

LIPS

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

TOOLS

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♥♥
