The Makeup Newbie #2


Kung naalala niyo this post from super looong looong time ago, mesa-makeup late bloomer ako. Nung college lang ata ako nag suklay (lol), at natuto mag mukap! Ang laman ng makeup kit ko noon simple lang: lip-and-cheek tint ng Avon (o kung may budgey, The Body Shop), pulbo (yung Johnsons o Clean and Clear--pwede nadin yung blue oil film ng C&C!), and Chapstick. Ngayon lang talaga ako nagttry ng mga concealer at pang-kilay, play play ng iba-ibang brushes, saka lipchook. Anyway, here's a round 2 of my The Makeup Newbie Chronicles (nuks), bilang I got this comment in my Cruisin' blog outfitey post weeks ago:


Thank you Romila! :) (Naks feeling magazine, hehehe). So uunahan ko na kayo with a before and after photo:


Panalo yung twalya look noh? Haha! Sabi nga ni Youtube makeup guru (my idol) Xteener, I am not afraid to show my "no makeup look" dahil alam naman natin na ang real beauty ay within (u-huh). And yan ang natural beauty ko, so tanggap nyo pa din ba ako? ;D Haha!

Anyway! here are the mukap na I used for this look, aka my everyday makeup (or every time lumalabas ako).



So ang first step ko is walang kamatayang cleanse-tone-moisturize.

1) My facial wash ngayon is still the bar of soap na ginagamit ko way back before blogging / brand gifts, which is Dr. Kaufman (white)--dahil nabasa ko sa forums na effective anti-acne sha. (not in photo)

2) After that, I use the Kojie-San Pureganics with Calamansi Extract Cleanser and Toner,

3) The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser as my primer,

4) and Myra Daily Sun Protect Facial Moisturizer para iwas harmful UV rays narin--lalo na't summer at matindi ang sikat ng araw ganap.


For my eyes...
1) I super love this Laura Mercier Colour-to-Go Portable Palette. Meron shang up-and-down ganap, sa baba may 2 blush-on shades, and may tinted lipgloss din na kasama--although naubos ko na so not in photo, hehe. I use the light brown shade (2nd) for my whole talukap, and then the third shade which is medyo dark brown for the outer sides of my eyes. Blend-blend-blend is key!

2) And then for eyeliner, I use yung Maybelline EyeStudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in black (comes with a brush) dahil smooth pag-glide nya, and easy to "manipulate" yung thickness.

3) I use a different eyeliner for yung lower part of my eyes--which is the BYS Kohl Eyeliner Pencil in Deep Grey. I trace the whole "waterline", and then mas makapal lang sa half of outer eye.

4) Same padin ang pang kilay ko, which is The Face Shop Face It Designing Cake Eyebrow. Mas mahusay lang ako mag apply na ngayon (lol)--filling the gaps, and then taking note of lengthening my short kilay with the dark brown. And yung light brown naman para more more natural effect. (Watch Ms. Divine Lee's kilay tutorial HERE. Favorite ko to, very educational! Hehe).


Lip and cheek tints, para hindi maputla!
1) As always, The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain for my blush. Long lasting, and natural ang color niya for me.

2) Still getting used to applying lipchook, so sobrang life changing nung nadiscover ko BYS Lip Gloss and Lipstick Duo in Kiss Me Coral. Natural everyday look lang sha, and hindi sobrang pansinin.


The "finished product"; hehe:

Licensed to "Selfie"! :P Hahaha, pagbigyan! Di ko to aaraw-arawin! Hehehe.



My alternative makeup naman, which includes:

Mascara:
 Hindi na ako nakapag-mascara for my "LOTD" above (hehe) kasi, honestly, medyo nabibigatan na ako sa mata ko with all the makeup and prescription contact lenses going ons--so minsan di na ako nag aapply pa sa pilik mata. But if ever man, I use Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express or Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara -- both preferred for more Isabel Granada effect (in short, ang ikli ng eyelashes ko). :p


Concealer, Moisturizer, Primer, Etc.
Bihira narin ako mag concealer and powder, unlike before, although kailangan parin with my imperfect skin. Pero, like for my eyes, medyo minsan ang heavy na niya and ang init na talaga sa labas, so I prefer na wala nalang, or sa mall o ganap na mag puslit ng powder.
BYS Concealer (Light),  Laura Mercier Face Powder (Nude), Laura Mercier Secret Finish Mattifying, Neutrogena Hydro Boost Essence (my nighttime moisturizer), Priori Coffeeberry Natureceuticals Perfecting Foundation (still my favorite!).


Pag medyo brave na ako, I'd like to try din yung makeup techniques na highlight and contour.
Laura Mercier Highlight - 02 and BYS Bronzing Powder


For the eyes...  More summery tone eye makeup from Laura Mercier--I'd like to play with these this summer, para beach babe drama!
Illuminating Eye Colour in Fire Glow
Eyeliner Creme in Espresso
Kohl Eye Pencil in Stormy Grey
Caviar Stick Eye Color in Sugar Frost
(Everything Laura Mercier)


More lip colors...
Pag events, or minsan kung babagayan ng outfitey, I love these lipchuk shades din:
RED - BYS Matte Lipstick in Tango
NUDE - Laura Mercier in Nude
PINK - Laura Mercier in Fresh Raspberry
DARK - The Body Shop Dolipscious Sheer Lip Colour #8


For pag apply, dahil kailangan ko pa ng more lakas ng loob mag vlog, you can watch this vid na nadiscover ko sa FB.
Panalo lang kasi ibang iba ang ichura niya--all thanks to right makeup!

  6. Hi fellow Tomasino :) I'm not into makeup too pero parang need na matuto 'cos of work. Syempre dapat always presentable, less haggard look. Hee Nakakaencourage itong post mo. And I will try to experiment with my makeup thingies... Hee Di kasi ko sanay na may makeup everyday... And my skin's not that great, sensitive kaya most of the time I have breakouts... :(
