Gosh! I did miss blogging! Because of all the busy mommy duties, I haven’t got time to blog these days but, here,ย I’m back! This time, I will talk talk about one of my obsessions… MAKEUP!!!

Most of us love makeup. Some are even willing to spend thousands of Pesos just to get the best brands of makeup. But, admit it, putting makeup everyday can bring stress to our skin especially with the heat and pollution here in the Philippines.

We don’t need to wear heavy makeup everyday.

If you want to feel natural and feel fresh, why not try a makeup that looks like #nomakeup?

This is my face without makeup. At home, it’s okay to look like this but it’s a no-no if you’ll go to work especially if your job is to face people; just like my line of work, teaching. I need to look presentable.

Liquid foundation is too thick for me. My face also sweats easily and it sweats a loooot. Therefore, I go for BB cream. Since I am a full-time mom right now, my priority is to spend money for my baby and less for myself… less for makeup. I needed to find a cheap brand but safe to use. I discovered this:

CARELINE’s BB CREAM WHITENING | Shade = NUDE

Just put a thin drop on each part of the face (on the forehead, cheeks, nose, chin, lower nose) and blend it. Don’t forget to apply on your neck. This will be the result:

I only applied the BB cream thinly. But if you’ll compare this from a while ago, there’s a change:

My skin became less oily and some of the dark spots were concealed.

The next thing you must do is to lighten those eye bags. I also use Careline to do this.

CARELINE’s Concealer

After applying the concealer, it’ll look like this…

See the difference? It lightened my eye bags. However, apply thinly so that it will look natural.

After the BB cream and concealer, finish up with…

Use a face or blush brush so that you can control the amount of powder you’re applying. Careline’s HONEY-shade pressed powder will make your face too white if you put it thickly. Again, apply a thin amount only. Maybelline’s pressed powder is a good brand too! It’s just that I consumed mine already and could not afford to purchase it again so, I tried Careline.

Next, your eyebrows. I use Fashion 21…

CARELINE’s BB CREAM WHITENING | Shade = NUDE

Compare my #noeyebrowliner photo to the #witheyebrowliner photo. It looks better, yet natural:

DO NOT USE A BLACK-COLORED EYEBROW PENCIL.

A black eyebrow pencil will make your brows look unnatural… it’ll look FAKE! It’s like you just placed on an eyebrow sticker on your face. Also, after applying the eyebrow product, use an eyebrow brush to blend it.

After your eyebrows, next will be your eyelids… EYE SHADOWย it is! For you to avoid scattered eye shadow, use an adhesive tape and put it on each side of your eyes just like this:

13939953_10154423225518094_1855778376_o

ย This will help you apply the eyeshadow and eyeliner easily.

13951047_10154423225503094_2139161525_o

I only used Shade B and C for my eyes. | Shade B is the lower left shade and shade C is the upper right shade.

After applying the eye shadow, it’s EYELINER time!

NICHIDO’s LIQUID PEN LINER

Stroke your eye with NICHIDO’s PEN LINER | No label again because I’ve been using this product for more than a year now.

This liquid liner is a little bit costly but worth it. It is easy to apply and it lasts for hours. It does not dry up easily as well. The liner’s pen tip is thin which will make it easy for you to do different strokes. *look at the stroke of the eyeliner and the application of the eye shadow, it is not scattered. That’s because of the adhesive tape placed on the side of my eye.*

Next, your lashes… After curling it up, it needs some mascara…

13950994_10154423225318094_1099025164_o
MAYBELLINE’s HYPERCURL MASCARA

ย This will give your lashes a curl and it will give more volume.

I think this mascara is SALE this August. You can get this for only Php150!

Compare my lashes with and without the mascara:

With Hypercurl, my lashes are more vivid.

Before the lips, put some blush on your cheeks.

ETUDE HOUSE’s GRAPEFRUIT JELLY BLUSH | #6

The color is kind of orangy *I forgot to take a picture of the blush itself*. Perfect for a natural look. Again, apply a thin amount only.

NO BLUSH vs WITH BLUSH

Lastly, the lips…

ETUDE HOUSE’s DEAR MY WISH | BE101

Just apply the lipstick and…

after that, TADAAAAAH!

13932185_10154423225003094_543962847_o

A very LIGHT and NATURAL look with #NOFILTER! Your face wouldn’t be so stressed because you only applied less! Of course, style up your hair to add to your natural-looking make-up! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you for reading this blog post! Remember:

Women who wear makeup doesn’t mean they’re not naturally beautiful. It’s just a matter of making ourselves feel MORE beautiful. Make-up or no make-up, BE CONFIDENT!

BEFORE MAKEUP vs AFTER THE NATURAL-LOOKING MAKE-UP

***Some of the products here are given by friends and family so I really spent less. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But for makeup brands that’s great yet you won’t spend more, go for CARELINE, MAYBELLINE, FASHION21, and matte lipstick of EVER BILENA (which is not featured here).

*Disclaimer: I am not a professional makeup artist. I only used my own techniques in applying the products.
