I will be attending a debut this coming weekend, so I wanted to practice the makeup look that I would have. Then, surprisingly, I arrived at a conclusion…–
First of all, you’re welcome.
— that eyeliner can save you in almost all situations! Thus, this is the trick that beginners had to learn. (Click to watch the video.)
Without further ado, let’s head in and get started!
After moisturizing my skin, I applied Maybelline’s Baby Skin (Php299) Face Primer. As you know, putting a face primer helps hold the makeup together and especially for this primer, it erased the obvious open pores you have. this is gold!
Then, I applied Revlon Photoready Foundation on the shade of Golden Beige. I cannot find a good picture of the Golden Beige so I just used this photo, but once again the shade that I used was Golden Beige. Regarding its price, this was only given to me by my sister so I don’t have any idea how much this costs. Besides, I think it’s phase out already and it was the Photoready Airbrush Effect that replaced it. But once again, that was only my hunch. *winks*
For concealing unwanted blemishes, impurities, and uneven skin tone. I used this BYS Concealer in Light, which is 2 shades lighter than my skin tone. Fyi, that’s how you choose your concealer okay? Hahaha.
And then, I set the foundation and concealer using this Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder.
And then, I filled in my eyebrows with this #02 Etude Drawing Pencil. If you would ask me, I would really recommend this product because aside from it does its work well, it is already angled so it’s easier to use.
(Based on the picture, let’s just number them 1-5. 1 is the white, and then 5 is the Violet-y/Chocolate-y color)
For the Eyes, I used this Glitter Eyeshadow Ellefar Color Makeup Series that I got from Daiso months ago. As I’ve said in the video, this is a complete game changer! These glittery eye shadows or eye colors are not trendy at the moment because it’s the neutral colors that are. But as I’ve said, this is a GAME CHANGER. So I used this product.
I placed #5 Violet/Chocolate color on my outer v and extended it to my crease. Then I placed #4 Gold color on the middle part of my lid. Then, I combined #2, a peach/orange color, and #3, a pink color, and placed them on the inner corner. Then, I placed #1 White to highlight my brow bone.
Don’t forget to blend them so that it won’t be too glittery!
And then, the trick that will save you from all situations: *drumrolls* The eyeliner!
I decided to make a winged eyeliner, and one thing that I learned is that if you’re not good with eyeliners, try to manipulate it with the brush you’re going to put it on with.
So what I did was, I used the BYS Smudge-free eyeliner on the winged part of my eyeliner, BUT! I didn’t use the brush that it has, and instead, I used the one from my finished tube of Maybelline Eyeliner because it has a thinner brush. Good thing, I wasn’t able to dispose of it yet that’s why I interchanged the brushes for both eyeliners. And fortunately, it really worked on giving that defined line that I wanted. (Although, if you’re planning to buy a liquid eyeliner, I would really recommend Maybelline instead.)
And then above my upper lash line, I used the Miniso Gel Eyeliner because it’s gel and it’s controllable. I also didn’t use the brush that it goes along with, and instead I used the brush that is– according to a lot of Google pages– a line brush.
And then, I curled my eyelashes and glued falsies on my upper lash line making sure it’s closest to the real lashes. And then, I applied this Miniso Mascara on the lower lash line so that it will look thicker and it will not make my upper lashes look ((too fake)).
And then, I contoured and highlighted some of the areas of my face with my Happy Skin Contour Kit.
Then, I brushed some Blushing Pink Nichido Blush on my cheeks.
For my lips, I used Michelle Phan’s Em Creamy Color Classic lipstick on the shade of Daredevil. And can I just say that I really like the coverage of this lipstick?? It’s pigmented and the color is just so beautiful! It’s like a violet-y chocolate-y (my favorite word for this blog post lol) color, and it really made my teeth look whiter. Lol. When Colgate fails you, Em is here for you.
And for the “gradient” effect, I used Colourpop on the shade of Midi and applied it on the middle part of my lips. This shade is something that I believe I cannot really wear on its own, it’s too pinkish and not suitable for my skin. But since it’s another “donation” from my sister, who I am to leave it behind right?
So, one thing about lipsticks if you cannot wear it by itself, mix it with another color. It will not only save you from buying another lipstick, but it will nurture the creativity in you and it will help you have your “own lipstick color.”
Don’t forget to spray some finishing spray that will extra-hold your makeup!
There you have it, folks! Thank you for watching my tutorial and reading this blog!
Have a nice weekend everyone! Stay organized and be kind!
