Summer Makeup

Thursday, April 11, 2013

As promised to myself, I opened some of my "summery" makeup na to create a different "FOTD" for this hot season - meaning, more gold tones, browns, corals, etcetera. I hate opening too-much beauty products, and then not really using everything up. Sayang din naman if I don't use them and just give them away (although bet na bet ng mga friends ko yan! Haha). :p So anyway, I played with a new eyeliner and eye shadow for my Nautical Number look last week.

Here are the makeup I used for this look:

1-2) Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Fire Glow + I used the 3rd dark brown shade from Laura Mercier's Colour-to-Go Portable Palette to create depth by applying and blending sa from outer part of my eyes.

3-4) Instead of my usual black eyeliner, I experimented with Laura Mercier's Eyeliner Creme in Espresso -- a dark chocolate shade from their Summer 2013 Collection. Lined the lower part of my eyes with Kohl Eye Pencil in Stormy Grey, again making sure to make the outer half darker.

5) Still used The Face Shop Face It Designing Cake Eyebrow for my kilay.

6) Instead of the regular cheek tint, I applied the BYS Bronzing Powder for a more summer-shimmer.

7) Since I am not into foundation and powder lately, so I just used the Laura Mercier Secret Finish Mattifying to go for a shine-free and natural look

8) I still prefer a natural lip color, so again I used my BYS Lip Gloss and Lipstick Duo in Kiss Me Coral.

Selfie time in Pax' car! :p Hehe!

I am not sure if the changes are obvious, dahil sabi nga ng harsh sister kong bunso (na walang ka-hilig hilig sa makeup) "Parang wala din namang nagbago!" from my everyday look. Even sa normal kong face! Araykulol. Anyway, it's fun to learn, and I enjoy experimenting din naman with the different colors and the makeup (sabi ko nga, late bloomer ako when it comes to these pagpapaganda, haha!). More practice and Youtube vids nalang siguro!

A closer look of my eyes--I love Laura Mercier's Fire Glow!
