DIY: Concealer~ (^∇^)

Hello ChibiNyan-tachi!! I’ll call you guys that from now on, ‘kay? Ohoho~

So, moving on~

I’m a bit tight on budget right now, and couldn’t afford to buy myself some concealer. And so, I had this crazy idea of making one on my own!

I did some research, and there were loads of guides on how to do it yourself. Thank you Google and YouTube~

The things I needed were: moisturizer, a powder that matches my skin color (or a little lighter), some scraping and mixing tool of some sort (in my case, toothpick), and a tiny jar.

I wasn’t so sure if Garnier Multi-Action Whitening Cream was a moisturizer.. But I use it as a moisturizer anyway.

I’ve had this tiny jar for about 3 years, it used to contain black loose glitter eyeshadow that I never bothered to use. Surprisingly, it was easy to clean.

Now on to the process of making my concealer~

First, I pour the moisturizer. Just a tiny bit.

Then scraped some of the powder into the jar.
 
And then mix it altogether. It’s as simple as that. There’s really no need for measurements here, coz ain’t nobody got time fo that!
 
It’s just a matter of mixing and finding the right shade and consistency. When I was happy with what I made, I put it inside the fridge for an hour to firm up.
 
And here is the finished product. I didn’t expect for it to turn out well. I’m feeling proud of myself. Ohoho~

Here’s what it looks like when I applied it on the back of my hand, partially blended and completely blended onto my skin. 

It smells nice too~ This was very fun to do! If you don’t have any concealer, I suggest you give this a try~!

Product Review: Nichido True Colors Liquid Foundation (True Natural)

Hello my lovelies~

It’s been weeks since I last posted that beauty-related product review, and now I’m back for another one. I’m sincerely hoping I could do more of these, since I’ve been doing a lot of studying and researching about skincare, makeup and whatnot.

Nichido True Colors with Sunscreen in True Natural (packaging) I picked up myself a liquid foundation from Nichido. This is my very first because to be honest, I don’t bother with using foundation. I only use this two-way cake foundation from Nichido, and I use it dry because I despise heavy makeup.

And recently I came to a conclusion that I really should try out using foundations, concealers and other fancy makeupy things. Although I don’t have my own concealer yet.

For P268 (roughly around $6) you get a 30ml bottle with a pump dispenser.

Nichido True Colors with Sunscreen in True Natural

So apparently, this liquid foundation should give me full coverage and has sunscreen. It’s very light on my skin, which I’m surprised. I used to apply BB Cream on my face, and those are so sticky and greasy and I hate it. This one is water based, and the texture of it is liquidy and not creamy. And it has sunscreen.

This doesn’t sit well with the dry skin on my nose and between my brows, I have horrible dry skin and I have to properly moisturize it with Nivea Cream before applying my foundation.

Despite being told that this should be a full coverage foundation, it didn’t cover my imperfections properly. Although it did blur out the redness of my face, it did not make it disappear. In my case, the only thing that could get rid of the red patches on my face is a color correcting concealer.

It tends to look cakey so be sure to blend it out well. Then set it with powder to give it a matte finish. I think this is a light to medium coverage, and it won’t really last the whole day.

It works great with Nichido’s Final Powder. I don’t know how I would rate this product, because I haven’t used any other liquid foundation aside from this one.
