summer is here! it’s time for those “waterproof” makeup to take the limelight πŸ˜‰

sharing my favorite products that i usually take with me and wear when i go to the beach. NOT all at the same time ok? haha

20120314-185948.jpgi’ve put in foundation, tinted moisturizer, cheek tintssssss, eyebrow liner, eye liners and lipstains πŸ™‚


20120314-190004.jpg

for eyebrows, i like to use my K-palette real lasting eyebrow liner because it really lasts a long time and usually doesnt budge! i usually don’t wear eyeliner if i know im hitting the water, but for lounging and what not, i sometimes do. i prefer the MUFE aqua eyes (in dark purple) because it looks less over the top (what? you’re wearing make up to the beach?) and really highlights my brown eyes. but if im going clubbing and i know ill be sweating in the humid beach weather, i like to wear my k-palette real lasting eyeliner πŸ™‚

for cheeks – as you know i loveeee me my blushes πŸ™‚ there are times where i skip all makeup and just wear blush to the beach. here are my favorites bench’s pretty when pinched cheek & lip tint (cheap and very effective), benetint’s benefit (the MOST coveted lip & cheek tint), tarte lip & cheek stains – i like this because they are easy to carry around. you dont have to worry about breaking the glass (unlike bench and benetint). and it’s sooo easy to use. you just need to swipe and blend blend blend!, theblam stainiac – perfect for carrying around because of the size! very travel friendly. although i find this harder to work with compared to the others.

im obsessed with lipstains at the moment! i’ve tried the one from covergirl, but i must say that these are so much better! it doesn’t taste like ink (like covergirl) plus it comes with a lip balm. the problem i had with covergirl was it look a bit patchy sometimes and it can be too drying. these lip stains from revlon are awesome!!!!! πŸ™‚ very pigment, build-able and definitely lasts a long time.

i usually skip foundation / tinted moisturizer but sometimes, SOMETIMES, my vanity gets the best of me πŸ™‚ my choice of products are the laura mercier tinted moisturizer and MUFE mat velvet+ (which says it’s water resistant). both products are oil free. let’s face it… lounging around under the sun will make you oily so you DONT need extra oil πŸ˜‰

well that’s basically it! πŸ™‚ oh i make it a point to wear lots of sunscreen.

hope you girls find this post useful. my nxt post will be a FOTD using these products.

oh and wish me luck… going for our teambuilding tom… paintballing! im scared!!!

where to get the products:

pretty when pinched – all bench outlets

benefit benetint – greenbelt 5

mufe – boni high street or shangri-la plaza

laura mercier – essences

thebalm stainiac and k-palette – beauty bar

tarte (available abroad)

revlon just bitten – department stores or drug stores

ive been wanting Β 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, Β i still nearly fainted when i saw the quotation! =p since i really wanted a haircut and color done – i took the plunge! πŸ˜€

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??? πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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

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.Β  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! πŸ˜€

BTW the dress, i got from mango :p

hope you guys liked this look!
