The Makeup Newbie


Hello guys!

I just want to share my current mukap regimen.
I am not your go-to makeup blogger, but I think that's the point. Hindi ako magaling sa makeup!
But I came up with my own version of an "everyday look" :



Nahihiya pa ako to post my vids or "before pictures" ala my makeup idols in Youtube Xteener and Michelle Phan..
But anyway, hindi ganyan ka flawless my skin (check out this photo, hoho.)
But thanks to good makeup and tools, kayang maka peke. Haha!


Makeup Primers
To prepare my face for makeup, here are the products I apply first:
1) iSkin Ultimate Sunshield with SPF 40
2) iSkin RADIANCE
or 3) The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser


Concealers and Foundation
1) ELF Tone Correcting Concealer (MY ULTIMATE FAVORITE) - blends well with any skin tone, evens out the color so wala kaagad yung redness and blemishes.
2) After applying ELF, I blend and set the concealer using PRIORI concealer (powder) para it will last throughout the day.
3) I also use PRIORI foundation, this time, all over my face. The best thing about Priori mineral makeup - they contain healing ingredients like CoffeeBerry na anti-aging nadin. Plus may SPF na sha. That's good makeup for you!


For the Eyes and Kilay
1) Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner in Black - for me, the easiest iapply, parang nagpapaint lang hehe. Also, hindi nagrurun kahit whole day ang ganap--and that came from my makeup lover friend Sarah!
2) The Face Shop Face It Designing Cake Eyebrow - another favorite! Got so obsessed with kilay lately, I studied how to make them thicker like these artistas:


3) PENSHOPPE Mirage Aqualiner in White - A new discovery! I love the difference a little bit of silver white sparkle in the corner of the eyes does in ones look!


More for the Eyes
1) Eyelash Curlers - The Body Shop, and a cheaper and still good alternative from Fanny Serrano (also recommended by Sarah)
2) Maybelline long extreme double stretch mascara - I seldom use mascara, but if I do eto gamit ko kasi nakakahaba ng eyelashes hehe. I haven't found what will work best for me (extensions? permed lashes?), so will try to discover pa more products for my lashes. Any suggestions? :)
3) EO Prescription Contact Lenses in Charcoal and Cinnamon (2.25 grade since forever! haha)


Lip and Cheek
1) The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain
2) Benetint Posie Pink lip and cheek stain (Benefit Cosmetics are available in Stuff in Style)
3) Cherry ChapStick - anti dry lips, lalo na naka braces me! ;p


Anyway, that's it! Don't forget to clean your makeup brushes! Para iwas breakouts, and for hygiene nadin. Michelle Phan recommends daily washing of brushes, but dahil hindi naman ako extremely OC, ok na yung once a week. Check out her tips here, na I follow din:


Next time, aside from lashes, I want to learn contouring and highlighting naman! :)
Grabe so much to learn, ang saya maging girl! Lol.
