Posts Tagged ‘HD foundation

ive been wanting  my hair styled and colored for a while, i have been feeling restless lately and i just wanted a change – i was just too lazy to get my sorry ass to the salon. but yesterday i finally dragged myself to give oliver, of vivere salon megamall, a visit. sadly, he wasn’t around 😦

walked around megamall while waiting for hubby and i happened to chance upon tony&guy and decided to give it a try! i’ve heard of tony&guy before and i know it was going to be more expensive than vivere salon, nevertheless,  i still nearly fainted when i saw the quotation! =p since i really wanted a haircut and color done – i took the plunge! 😀

this was me, before the haircut

this is me today! :p

sorry a bit blurry…

trying on different lipcolor. see what difference a lipstick can make??? 🙂 which one do you prefer on me?

oh! and i wanted to show this very cute earrings i got from ALDO last Sunday. it’s a huge tear drop shaped earrings with lots of bling 🙂

do you like my new hairstyle? i am a bit torn… honestly, i wanted to cry yesterday because of the length and i felt like it uber emphasized my super round face. :p but i do like the color!

however, my hubby seems to love it. so i guess, i should be happy 🙂

products used:

MUFE HD foundation in 123

MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW25 (undereyes)

MAC Espresso on brows set with MAC Brow Gel

MAC All That Glitters, Sketch and Carbon on eyes (sketch and carbon used VERY lightly and blended out)

MAC Blacktrack fluidline

NARS Laguna to contour

Body Shop Baked Blush in Coral

MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural to set makeup

1st lip color: Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Plum with Viva Glam VI lipgloss

2nd lip color: Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart

this week, i wanted to try something different. usually i try to play up my eyes… but this week, i wanted my lips to be the highlight of my look, so i tried to tone down my eyeshadow by using white eyeshadow with a very light brown for contouring, black eyeliner and a plum-ish red blush to go with the lipstick. here’s the result:

 

using laura mercier lipstain in mulberry

using revlon’s colorburst lipgloss in bordeaux

i posted a pic in my personal account in FB yesterday and i can’t believe the amount of likes it got! 😀

here’s the picture: (i forgot to bring my camera so i had to use my BB! sowee)

products used:

Face: TheBalm Face Primer, Makeup Forever HD foundation, MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural (to set foundation), TheBalm TimeBalm in medium, MAC brow pencil in Brunette, Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Java (used as eyebrow shader), NARS Laguna bronzer (contour), Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Natural Beauty, TheBalm Mary-lou Manizer

Eyes: MAC eyeshadows in Patina, Rice Paper and Golden Gaze (semi-precious collection), Nars Cordura, Bobbi Brown Caviar ink gel eyeliner, Maybelline Falsies Mascara

Lips: MAC Cosmo lipstick and clear lipglass

How to:

1. Apply foundation all over face, concentrating on areas which need more coverage. (i used beauty blender to apply MUFE HD foundation)

2. Apply timebalm concealer to lighten dark circles and to cover blemishes.

3. Set with MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural.

4. Apply Patina all over the lids.

5. Apply Rice Paper at the inner corners of your eye.

6. Apply the darker shade of Cordura on the crease and a little bit over the crease (to emphasize the color). Blend well.

7.  Apply Golden Gaze to the outer corners of the eyes. Tip: Draw an inverted V or > at the corner of the eyes then blend blend blend! :) Also, apply to the outer half of your lower lashes (to emphasize the shape of your eyes)

8. Apply eyeliner on your top lashes, wing out a bit for more drama.

9. Waterline your eyes (top and bottom).

10. Fix your eyebrows, i emphasized the arch of my brows to (hopefully) make my face look leaner.

11. Curl your lashes and apply mascara! :)

12. Contour your face by applying bronzer to the hollows of your cheeks. Tip: do the fish face and look for the part of your face that is sucked in. that’s the hollow of your cheeks!

13. Apply blush to the apples of your cheek. Since i am going for the smokey eye effect, i applied a very natural looking blush to balance out the look.

14. Optional: Lightly apply powder to blend the bronzer and blush and to set your makeup. If you want a dewy look, you can skip this step.

15. Apply lipstick of your choice. Again, I opted for a natural looking lip color, you want to highlight only one area of your face and not all :)

16. Apply lipgloss in the middle of your bottom lips and smack your lips together. This will give you the illusion of fuller lips!

i really like this kind of look although it does take a lot of work, especially the eye makeup! 😀

BTW the dress, i got from mango :p

hope you guys liked this look!
