Tutorial: Easy Casual Makeup

I was fiddling with my makeup today and thought I should share my casual makeup look. This is good for an everyday one, or step it up a notch. Add some glam for a party look.

I’ll only show you how to do the eyes. For the rest of my face I applied foundation then set it with loose powder. Filled in my eyebrows. Did some contouring on the hollow of my cheeks, jawline and temple. Applied highlight on my brow bone, the bridge of my nose, above my cheekbones and on my cupid’s bow. A little bit of blush on my cheeks. You know, basic stuff.

As for the eyes, I started off with applying this beige shimmery eyeshadow on my lid. Not going past my crease. (I’m using L.A Colors Eyshadow by the way. Here’s my review on that.)

 

After that, I apply a slightly dark brown eyeshadow on the outer corner of my eye. Shaping it pointedly so it looks like cat eyes. I drag a little bit of it under my lower lash line but not all the way, stopping before my pupil. If that makes any sense.




Then I pick up some of this brown shimmery eyeshadow that’s close to the shade I applied on the outer corner of my eyes.


I use it to blend the two colors together. Like so.

After that, I put a little of this white shimmery eyeshadow on the inner corner of my eyes.


Applied some brown eyeliner on my waterline. Then eyeliner on my upper lash line, not too thick. It’s your choice to wing it or not, but I decided not to

Curled my lashes, and applied some mascara on both my upper lash and lower lash.



For the last finishing touch, I apply this lipstick from L.A. COLORS. Shade Pouty. (I did not a good job on my eyeliner oTL)


All done~!

I tried to use some fake lashes, but it didn’t go so well. What do you guys think? Yay or nay?

Japan Home Centre & Saizen Haul + Artist Studio Brush~! ( ^ω^ )

Hello again ChibiNyan-tachi~

I did this sort of haul, and I’d like to share it with you lovely people~!

Okay, so the only reason why I went to Japan Home Centre is because I wanted to buy some tiny jars. For when I make some cosmetics and whatnot. I didn’t expect that I would find some immediately.

For P88 ($2) you get three tiny jars. Look at it! It’s so adorable~ And it’s black too.

And then I picked up a basket, for organizing my makeup. Because my tiny makeup bag can’t fit them all now (´;ω;`)

The last thing I got from Japan Home Centre is this vanity mirror. This was the only one left, and I thought it was perfect for my table.

I was searching for Daiso in Trinoma, but the salesperson from JHC said they didn’t have Daiso there, only Saizen (oops, my bad). Anyway, I quickly made a beeline to the cosmetics section~!

Currently, they have this promo when you buy 4 cosmetic products, you get 1 free! But sadly, this doesn’t include fake lashes (⊙︿⊙✿) The promo is until March 31st, so quickly go visit one of Daiso’s branches (。•̀ᴗ-)✧

I got me some highlighting powder, cheek blush, eyeshadow quad, and a nude lipstick. Also some fake lashes and of course, eyelash glue. As for the free item, I chose to get the automatic eyebrow pencil and it came with a brush.

I love the nude lipstick! It’s creamy, but it cracks with dry lips. You ought to prime it with some good ‘ol chapsticks (*´・v・) It’s a matte finish, but it looks fabulous with a clear lipgloss on top of it.

It’s nice that the eyelash glue is black, so there’s no need to go over the fake lashes with eyeliner.

So I got everything I needed, but then I got curious. See, there’s this stall in Landmark that sells cheap brushes. It’s called Artist Studio. Their brushes are cheap and amazing, I have one of their blending brush.

My friend told me that the last time they went to Landmark, the stall was no longer there. Their brushes were out of stock and wasn’t sure when it will be in stock again. That was way back in December.

Just to be sure, I visited the department store. Lo and behold, the stall was there!! Only, a lot of their brushes were out of stock (´;Д;`) The salesperson told me that they recently just restocked and their blending brushes, angled powder brushes, and angled flat top brushes quickly got sold out.

I wanted an angled brush for contouring.. Boohoo (´;ω;`) But anyway, I got this brush instead! It’s good for liquid foundation and concealer.

It costed me P79.95 ($2), and for that price, it’s crazy good! The bristles are nice and soft, but it’s also stiff so it’s good for applying my liquid foundation.

That’s it for my haul, I’ll probably post a look I’ll make with these goodies soon~!
