Hey guys! Long time no post here. How is everyone doing?
I haven’t been buying makeup lately, which is good for my pocket, as you can tell by the lack of posts. LOL. Lately, I’ve been strolling at the makeup section in the department store. And now I’m lemming for some makeup.
#1: IN2IT Lip Tint
These look so pretty. Have you guys tried this? I am still trying to decide what shade to get.
#2: Ever Bilena Eyebrow pencil
I already have a lot of eyebrow products, but mostly powders. I also love my Etud House drawing pencil, but I want to try a local brand of eyebrow pencil. The local brands here for eybrow powder are disappointing because they’re too reddish for my taste. Hence I settle with Wet N Wild eyebrow kit and NYX eyebrow cake. They are good, trust me! I’ve hit pan with my Wet N Wild one, but still yet to hit pan with my NYX one.
#3: Lip Pencils
As promised, here are more pictures from our photoshoot earlier this month. This is a 3-man shoot wherein we are the models and at the same time work behind the camera. I am the makeup artist and the look we’re wearing in this shoot is somewhat similar to the Cute Fairy Photoshoot that I did a while back, except that we wore a white eyeliner, instead of black. I used a lighter shade of brow set since we have light-colored hair and a different shade of pink lipstick.
Now onto the picspam!
One of the photographer, Shad, is fond of “fierce” theme and I think my eyes added to that effect. I have a lot of photos with that theme, but this is my favorite among them.
As for the Smiling Senyth, which is rare in this shoot by the way, this is my favorite. It’s obvious, right? That is if you’ve noticed my new website header.
This is Tiff, the chic, female photographer. She’s doing Shad’s fierce forte. It suits her, though.
I haven’t updated my blog in such a long time and I miss doing colorful makeup looks. It’s been so long I can’t even remember how I take my pictures. LOL.
Anyways, I tried doing a blue eye makeup look. In my book, it looks okay, but still has room for improvement.
How I did it:
- Prime your eyelids.
- Apply a base so the colors will pop.
- Using a flat shader brush, pat on a medium aqua eyeshadow on the inner third and outer third of the eye, leaving the center bare.
- With a smaller brush, pat on a baby blue color on the center.
- Using a crease brush, appply a darker blue eyeshadow on the hollows of the eye to create an illusion of depth.
- Blend the shadows with a blending brush to soften the edges.
- With an even smaller brush, swipe a black shadow on the outer V to intensify the color.
- With a blending brush, swipe a light brown color just above the crease area as a transition color. This also helps to soften the edges.
- Highlight your brow bone and tear ducts with a cream-colored shadow.
I have always wanted to dress up during Halloween. Even as a kid, I’ve always used my mom’s red lisptick and slather it all over my lips down to my neck, as if I just devoured someone for dinner. Then I’ll wear a white dress and scare my younger brothers.
I got this inspiration from Bloody Mary. As per Wikipedia’s definition, Bloody Mary is a legendary ghost or spirit conjured to reveal the future. She is said to appear in a mirror when her name is called multiple times.
Scared yet? This is seriously a no-brainer look, but truly scary.
Try to stare with your eyes enlarged for added effect.
How I did it:
- Apply foundation to even out your skin tone and any redness on your face.
- With an eyeshadow brush, take a red eyeshadow, mix it with a black eyeshadow and apply it to your upper and lower lids to create the bruise, sunken, bloodshot eyes effect. Deepen the color when you get to the inner corner of your eye and almost to the sides of the nose.
I have this habit of dressing up when it’s Halloween. I like to primp and prettify myself, but I like to make myself look scary when the occasion calls for it.
Wanna see the pictures? Brace yourselves.
Pretty creepy, eh? It’s my first fiddling with this one and I can say I’m quite good at makeup for scary looks. LOL.
I achieved this using an eyeliner pencil on my lids, and waterline. I also used matte black eyeshadow of Ever Bilena. As for the face, I just used a white face powder. I wasn’t able to find a white cream/paint. It was cheap though. I bought it at a local store for P42 which is about a dollar.
I used the same method only that I used a matte black, red, and purple eyeshadow to give it a “dead” look. Why matte? You don’t want to appear like a sparkling Edward Cullen right? It just sounds so wrong! Hehe. I used a black eyeshadow for contouring my cheeks to make it appear sunken in.
I honestly don’t know what I’m trying to achieve here. I think it looks scary though.
