Makeup tutorial: Party Look

As promised.. Here is another makeup tutorial. I think i would call this one the “party look”. I also did this makeup when i attended FSUU’s Fuzzion event. I just had to redo the whole look so i can do a makeup tutorial for you guys. =) 

My last makeup tutorial was last year i think and i pretty much use the same stuff until now. =)

image

Get this look!

Start scrolling down.. =)

I’m using Mac 187 stippling brush to apply my foundation. Here I’m using Benefit’s Hello Flawless foundation in Ivory. To set my foundation i’m using Mac’s select sheer pressed powder in NC20.

About the foundation: I was never impressed, period. Or maybe the foundation wasn’t just for my skin type. I tried to give it a chance and used it again, twice! Still didn’t work for me. It didn’t have that much coverage as i wanted. I still go back to my Revlon Colorstay. =)

image

Apply blush!

Here i’m using Bobbi Brown in Pale Pink. Applied it using an angled blush brush from Mac in 168.

image

Apply eye primer.

I’m using Urban Decay’s Primer Potion. Let it set, then apply the base colour for the eyeshadow. Here i used Mac in shroom

image

I added more shimmer into my eyeshadow to make it look more dramatic. Using my finger, i applied Stila eyeshadow in Moonlight.

image

Add some colour into your pretty peepers!

I’m still using my Urban Decay Naked Palette just like my last makeup tutorial. 

Using Mac’s 217 brush, my favorite brush by the way. Hehe! Take the colour Smog and apply all over the lid except for the brow bone area.

image

Using a crease brush, this one i got from a random store in Bangkok. The brand is Magique in M011. Apply the colour Darkhorse on the outer corners of your eye and on the inner half as well. 

Blend it well! 

image

Using the same brush. I apply a bit of the colour, Creep on the outer corner. Remember, just the outer corner. I do this to create a darker shadow effect on the corners of my eyes which will also create an illusion of having bigger eyes. =)

image

Next up, use a smudger brush. I’m usuing Smashbox’s 20 smudger brush. Take the colour, Smog and apply it on your lower lash line starting from the outer corner to the center of your lower lashline. 

You can apply a darker shade if you want to. =)

image

Now for the eyeliner. My fave! Majolica Majorca’s liquid liner

A little trick i do to have perfectly drawn eyeliner:

Line… wing it… connect and fill it in. =D

image

Time to apply some mascara!

For this look, i used Dior’s Diorshow waterproof mascara for more thick-looking lashes.

And oh, don’t forget to curl them first. =)

image

Add more drama into your look and put on some lashes!

I like to cut my falsies into half. I think they’re much easier to apply when they’re cut into halves.

image

Using another angled brush, this one is from Charm Pro. I got them from Zalora.ph. Its just a simple angled brush i use to apply bronzer. 

Excuse the icky Nars packaging. Don’t you just hate Nars’ product packaging. It tends to get all sticky and icky. Ugh! Haha! Let me know if this happens to your Nars packaging as well. =)

Anyway, for my bronzer, i use Nars bronzer in Sertao. Apply it on the lower half of your cheeks just halfway thru the hollows of your cheeks and up to your temples.

You can also apply some highlighters if you want to. =)

image

Last but not the least.. Lippies! =)

Here i used Miners lipstick in Icon (i think..). Topped it off with Nyx soft matte lip cream in Antwerp

And i’m done! =)

I really hope you guys love this look i’ve created!

Till my next tutorial!

xoxo,
Stephanie

Look what got into my mail today!

Model Own nailpolish in Beth’s Blue & Jade stone

(@ php350 each)

Nyx soft matte lip cream in Antwerp & Nyx matte lipstick in Angel

(Both lippies are just php290 each!!!)

Latest buys from Digital Traincase!  I got so hooked with these matte lipsticks from NYX that i had to buy another one just to satisfy my itch for more NYX lippies. haha! Anyway, haven’t tried the lip cream yet but ive heard a lot of good reviews about this. But you’ll never know till you try it. hehe! So, i had to get one for myself.

Model’s Own. My new found love when it comes to nailpolish. It gives your nails that clean look with its pastel colors. Almost like milk, yogurt or ice cream.. Whatever.. Looks good enough to drink. Lol! joke! Basta, they look super cute on your nails! Perfect for formal occasions especially on weddings. hehe!

Till next post guys! mwah! ❤

Kaartehan

Based on this blog post title itself, yes, its all about the “kaartehan”. And I have a few goodies that i definitely recommend you guys. I got them from an online store called Digital Traincase. Almost everything was on sale and i couldn’t let that pass. =p

Nail goodies! =)

OPI in Rainbow Connection & China glaze in Love Marilyn

Seche Vite Nail polish thinner & Seche Vite Topcoat.

Haven’t tried out the Nail polish thinner yet but for the topcoat, all i can say.. If you want your nail polish to last you up to weeks and still maintains that shiny coat.. You should definitely get this. It’s a bit pricey though, these were actually on sale and bought it for Php380 per bottle. Regular price for this at around Php420 per bottle. So far, i thought the OPI topcoat was the best of all topcoats, but i was wrong. hehe! These were waaay better. So, i don’t really mind the price ‘cuz these topcoats are worth every dime. hehe!

NYX Matte Lipsticks in audrey & Sweet Pink

Aaand.. These! Im definitely getting more of these lippies. These are worthy of comparison against the ever popular makeup brand, MAC. These matte lipstick are my new favorite lipsticks.. Long-wearing and does not leave your lips that dry and chapped feeling. These are matte but i never expected them to be so moisturizing. =)
