Simple and Fresh Wedding Make up

Hi Lovelies!

I haven’t blogged in a very long time but this time i will show you a very wearable look for wedding or any occasion or maybe everyday look for some of you. Enough of rambling, lets proceed to step by step procedure to achieve this look! πŸ™‚

PS: Pardon me, I forgot to take pictures of step by step 😦

1. MOISTURIZER and PRIMER. Since this look is all about fresh faced andΒ longevity of make up, we need to moisturize and prime our skin very well to provide a very good base for foundation. I used Myra E moisturizer.

2. WATER- BASED FOUNDATION. If you live in a humid country like Philippines and you tend to be oily, water based foundation with matte finish can be your best friend. Of course you don’t want to be greasy on you’re special day, don’t you?? I use Maybeline gel foundation in Natural Beige.

Image

3. CONCEALER. We’re not perfect! I know! Thats why we need concealer to look flawless on a very special day! πŸ™‚ Put concealer under your eyes and on spots that needs concealing. For brighter looking face, you can try this pattern of putting concealer.

Image

4. BROWS. Everybody knows it frames our face so it is indeed important to make the most natural looking brows if we are going for a fresh look. I love to use ELF brow kit’s wax to stencil the brow then fill them in with the powder. You can also add concealer to make the brows looking clean.

Image

5. EYESHADOW. After applying primer in your eyes, put a pearl colored eyeshadow all over the lid concentrating in the inner lid. Apply this color in the lower lash line as well. Define your crease by applying matte brown shadow and blending it with pearl shadow. Emphasize outer V by brushing a dark brown shadow and blending it with the rest of the colors. You can stop here but I opted to add more depth by putting black in the outer V as well for more definition. Brush dark brown eyeshadow to lower lash line.

6. EYELINER. FALSE LASHES. Put on your favorite liquid or gel liner and slightly wing the outer part. Apply mascara and apply natural false lashes if you need moreΒ lengthΒ and volume. Dont forget to join the two together!

7. CONTOUR. Since flash photography may flatten your face on the pictures, we need to bring back those details by contouring. Use matte bronzer and apply it on the hollows of your cheek, jawline and temples for instant definition.

Image

8. BLUSH. Apply light pink blush on the apples of your cheek for the fresh look!

9. LIPSTICK. You can choose the color you want but I opted for a light peach pink lipstick to get along the natural look.

[Make up Look of the Day] Simple Everyday Make up + Brief Product Reviews

Recently, I’m not into drastically lined eyeliner and heavy coverage foundation, I don’t even wear eyeshadow. I am more inclined in super simple make up with pinky-corally-summery listick/tint. Since its getting hotter than usual here in the Philippines where I live, having make up that will lasts all day is a must facing the humidity and excessive oiliness of the skin.

Products I used:

1. Maybelline Aqua Gel Foundation- maybe the word foundation freaks you out a little bit but girl I can assure you that this product is so lightweight with amazing (light Β to medium) coverage. I love how it controls the excessive sebum in my face since I have really (like seriously) oily- combination skin. It contains no oil, easy to blend and affordable! πŸ™‚

Image

2. E.L.F. Eyebrow Kit – I love this, easy to apply, long lasting! That’s it πŸ™‚

Image

3. Maybelline The Falsies Flared Mascara- Well, one of the best mascara ever! Give great volume and length. Holds curl amazingly, last a lifetime (just kidding!), really long lasting πŸ™‚

Image

4. Avon Simply Pretty Lip and Cheek Tint- Lip and Cheek Tint in summer is a must! It give really natural blushing color to cheeks and last up to 12hours!

Image

5. My Lip Combo – Glamworks lip and cheek cream in Peach Pink, Natasha Beauty Pure Color Lipstick in Passion, and Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Balm in Cherry. A coral lipstick, baby pink Tint and sheer red lip balm. Love it! πŸ™‚

LOVE: Its Complicated

Barefoot_couple____by_sergey1984

When to love? How to love? Who to love?

Love is a broad issue with different meaning. Your definition of love may not be in line with mine. Others may have their own too.

But where do love meet between the realm of heart and mind? Where does mutuality lies? Where do beating become one?

From one state of thinking, you may thought ive never been to this since these questions arise. I dont know. Maybe there are different approaches in different ppl we love. Like what i said, we have our own unique definition of what love is. One approach may not be applicable to another. While it effectively make its worth into one. ITS COMPLICATED. Maybe thats where it lies. When definition and emotion collides.

Im pretty sure once in our life we have been a victim of love’s tricks. Somehow it confused us, left us bothered or bring us sleepless nights brought by love’s diverse meaning. But isnt it wonderful how love meet at the center of everything despite the complications and diversity of what it meant? How about the miracle of two ppl from different parts of the world become one in love?

Know why?

Because ever since the creation of the world, God demonstrated LOVE for us…

and it will be until the world perished…

 

Happy February Lovies πŸ™‚

 

Enjoy! God bless

Even when this seems paradoxical on the surface, – how could you ever possibly want anything but happiness, – on a deeper level, there is something in you that is making it so. To transform your life you first must understand what is keeping it the way it is.

[Review] Glamworks Lip and Cheek Tint in Peach Pink

Hi Friends! This will be my first beauty post for this blog and I’m so excited to do this because I will be reviewing a product I just bumped into.

Anyway, moving on, I was checking out some products on Watsons SM Harrison last Sunday when I stumble on this product. Well, to tell a fact about me, I really fancy those products with multiple function like lip and cheek tint, I have tried quite few brands from liquid consistency, cream, gel, etc.

Comes in a handy...:)

Super affordable at P75.00! πŸ™‚

It was with a reddish berry colored tint too. But I got the baby pink one since it makes me more youthful! heheh! I am really stunned by its color, of like baby pink peachy color. I am seriously in search of a baby pink sheer color recently. I know there are lots in the market, but most of the formula is not suited for me (some are too matte, sticky or too opaque).

see how wonderful the color is! Im inlove! ❀

Yes, its really pigmented for its price tag! It has sheer semi-matte finish and really creamy but it tends to dries up after few hours, so if you have a dry lips like mine, you can topped it with your favorite lipgloss or have a lipbalm applied under it. It last quite good too, specially in cheeks.

and OH! its smells really good like a cherry-flavored lollipop! πŸ™‚

Here are the pictures when applied to cheek and lips! πŸ™‚ It comes out really natural for my skintone.

Comes out semi-matte like that of NYX matte lip creme

Excuse my chubby cheeks :D

Excuse my chubby cheeks πŸ˜€

Enjoy! God bless!
