Some of you asked how do i do my makeup? Well here it is! I wouldn't call this a tutorial or any kind of professional guide cos i'm definitely not a make-up guru. What i'm doing is just plain sharing my personal make-up routine. I don't know if you can tell i was pretty uncomfortable with a camera taking pics of me dolling up...so i tried not to look at the camera...and as you can see my hair in the process was kinda a mess.
I'm going to show a full make-up routine that i do when i go to the town shopping with my friends or on a date with my boyfriend. For most casual times, i would actually skip some of the steps and go simple and easy on myself.
Some basic products that i normally use, although i have a habit of changing between brands particularly on loose powder, foundation and eye shadows.
After applying my skincare, lip balm and sunblock, i used this bb cream as a base/foundation. Sometimes i use my everyday mineral powder foundation for a change.
Just a slightly bigger than red bean size of the bb cream for a natural coverage.
Dab the bb cream onto forehead, cheeks and chin areas.
Using fingertips, i applied the cream to the whole face evenly.
This is the concealer powder from everyday minerals.
As you can see i have freckles on my cheeks and they were there ever since i was a little girl. I don't hate them so i won't deliberately hide them. I use concealer mainly for my dark circles and acne scars.
I would use a brush to conceal my dark circles and a cotton bud on small tiny scars and marks. I don't advice heavy concealing because it would just make your face looks cakey especially on the undereye areas. Over-doing it will just make your flaws even more obvious.
Everyday minerals finishing powder. Sometimes i would do this the very last step after blusher.
Yep i used the same brush ( i used a tissue to remove the left-over concealer powder from the brush before this step )
Bronzer from Paul & Joe!
This is to contour my face on the sides to create a slimmer looking face.
Eyebrow powder from Everyday minerals.
Fasio eyeshadow that i never get bored of using. The colors are just must haves!
Close-up on the eye, applied white color on the inner corner of the eye lids, follow by champagne in the middle then lastly applied the brown color shadow towards the end of the lids. And i used a cotton bud to draw the brown color shadow on my lower eyelids too.
Light pink blush from Everyday Minerals. Okay this step should be after my eyeliner.
Normally i would apply my eyeliner first and while waiting for it to dry i blush my cheeks. Then i go back to the eyes for the mascara which is the last step.
K- palette eyeliner i have been using for the past 3-4 years? Since it first came out in Singapore.
I drew a line across the upper lid on the lash line , try to draw it as close to your lashes. You can smudge the line with a cotton bud to create a softer look.
I'm also a fan of this mascara from Majolica Majolica. This one gives volume. Sometimes i would use a bit of mascara on my lower eyelashes.
And i'm done! I didn't put on any lipstick this time, just lip balm! :) I don't use false eyelashes on regular basis, i only put them on for special occasions...or particular times when i wanna try on a new look or something.
I hope this is some helpful information for you guys. And this is pretty much the way i do it :)
