Personal Makeup Shopper For A Day

My friends always ask for makeup tips from me ever since I expressed my interest in that area. For some reason, I find it fulfilling whenever I see someone like the product I recommended and rave about it endlessly. With all the makeup tips I've learned from blogs, books, makeup artists and YouTube gurus, I now know a variety of products that may be suited for different skin types and skin tones.

A close friend of mine who's back into performing asked for my help on makeup shopping. This is not a first time for me to do this. I've done it with other friends but this is the first time that I'll be blogging about it.

The reason why I love personal makeup shopping is the challenge of buying ALL the things the person needs given the limited budget. Well, you're lucky enough if your friend/client has no budget limit. :))

Chrissie needs the following things:
1. Concealer
2. Black Eye Pencil
3. Face Brush
4. Blending Brush
5. Eye Primer
6. Black Mascara
7. Makeup Remover
8. Lipstick

Chrissie has combination-oily skin with a yellow undertone. Basically, the things she needs to buy will be used in her upcoming concerts. I decided that we do the makeup shopping in SM Megamall and Shangri-la Mall to have access to both department store and high-end brands. Since we only have 1-2 hours for this activity, I already asked for the shopping list before hand and thought of brands that we can visit. After a fun 1.5 hours of shopping, here's our haul:

EOTD: Sunshine Through My Window

So how did you spend the past 2 long weekends? That basically explains why I was MIA these past few days. I spent most of the time relaxing and catching up with family and friends. Anyway, this will just be a quick post on a look I tried on our concert in Ptuj, Slovenia.

Product Review: ELF Beauty Book Smokey Eye Palette

Here comes another product review to read! You have seen how I used ELF Smokey Eye Palette in my recent tutorial. Now it's time to give my full review of this palette.

I got this palette as gift from ELF Cosmetics Philippines. I've never actually owned any ELF palette before that's why I was very excited to try out this product.

Quick Updates + Recent Makeup Haul

How's everyone? I hope you and your families are safe. It's just really heartbreaking to see the damage of the recent monsoon rains. :( Yesterday, I'm lucky to be in a safe and dry place but I also feel helpless. I wanna go out and help pack relief goods in Ateneo but I don't know how to get there. :( I hope the sun will appear soon and the floods will subside immediately.

In other news, I'm also here to blog about my recent makeup haul. I'm trying to avoid makeup shopping cause of my huge haul from my recent trip, as well as to save for better things (i.e makeup school, client makeup and tools). I have to say, I've been a good girl for the past months cause I didn't splurge that much. If there's one splurge I did, it's a good investment. Anyway, here are the things I acquired recently.

EOTD: A Teal Experiment

Just a really quick post! Two Saturdays ago, I experimented on different eye makeup looks. I tried to practice some crease cutting and this is what I came up with. Water was actually my inspiration for this look so I used a lot of teals and aqua blues. What do you think?

I'm trying to look for more inspirations for my next tutorlias and EOTDs. Feel free to suggest ideas and let me do my own interpretation of it. ;)

Told ya that's quick! ;)

Product Review: MAC Impassioned Lipstick (Pink-Coral Crush)

Hooray for the 1st day of August, my birth month! Well I'm not really trying to tell you that my birthday is soon. :)) Anyhoo, this is another product review for all the lipstick lovers out there. Like other girls, I'm crazy for MAC lipsticks. I don't have as much but I can safely say that it's my favorite of all brands.
