as per request by a good friend, here’s my way of doing the what everyone calls a “smokey eye”.
i’m not good at it. this is actually the first time i’m gonna try doing it.
so please, bear with me. :)
let’s do this! :))
haha. what a face?!! … as always, start with a clean face then apply whatever you usually apply on your face. in this look, i chose to use bb cream, concealer and powder.
fill in your brows. apply a white eyeshadow right at your brow bone to add definition.
i don’t have an eye primer so i used my cream vanilla eyeshadow instead. i applied it all over my lid. but if you a primer, it’s better.
to set the cream shadow, apply a white matte eyeshadow unto your lid.
using a pale gray eyeshadow, cover the white shadow on your lid. notice how the two colors blends just right. :)
line your eyes. slightly wing it out. i’m using a felt tip eyeliner from nichido. this eyeliner is best for first timers.
using a black eyeshadow and a pencil brush, (i don’t have a pencil brush so i used my small flat one) draw a line connecting the two ends of the line on your eyes. (as shown in the photo) i know it looks ridiculuos, but wait til i blend this sucker out.
apply a black eyeshadow at the outer V. and blend using a blending brush. remember to use a very light hand and don’t over blend. (or else, you’ll look like an adorable panda) if you don’t have a blending brush, you may use you your middle finger. besides, fingers are the BEST make up tool. with a cream eyeliner pencil, line your lower lash line and bring it up to your water line. clean the smudge using a Q-tip. curl your lashes and apply mascara.
apply a peach blush at the apples of your cheeks.
and a nudy peach color on you lips. remember the number one rule on make up world that i shared with you on my previous entry? “when you go dark with you eyes, go light with your lips; and vice versa.”
and we’re done! :))
pretty fine for a first timer, right? :)
thank you for your time. have fun and good luck! :))
hello. :) it’s been a while i know.
in this entry i’ll feature a look i wore during summer time … way back college. :)) let’s start!
as always, start with a clean face. did you know that sleeping with make up on makes your face age days? so, never try to do that. unless you want to age fast. ^_*
apply a medium coverage foundation, be sure to use the oil control one and with a powder finish, so it won’t smudge. then cover up your dark circles and imperfections with concealer. (mary kay foundation, careline liquid concealer)
let’s move on to the eyes. using a taupe eye shadow, color the outer V of your eyes. be sure to leave the inner part clean. (clinique eye shadow duo)
now, to the center of your eyelid, apply a white eye shadow to brighten those eyes. bring it up to the brow bone to add definition. (clinique eye shadow compact)
then, fill in you brows. i’m bad at it, i know. (benefit eye brow color)
now for the pop of color. using an angled brush or any small brush, line your eyes with a turquoise or any bright color. bring the color down to your lower lash line. for more intensity bring it up to your water line. (elf eye shadow pallet)
line your eyes with your favorite eye liner. i want it as thin as possible so, it won’t over power the bright color i just applied. (nichido liquid eye liner)
curl your lashes and apply mascara. (nichido double up mascara)
apply pink blush to the apples of you cheek bone. (elf blush compact)
for the lips, a neutral pink color. (exel paris lip tint)
and you’re done! i look like a fortune teller, i know. :))))))
yea, the photos aren’t good. boo! -_-
have fun and good luck! :) (please forgive my photos, didn’t took as much since my son’s bothering me asking for milk and please, don’t mind my fat face.=))
HELLO! after over months of neglecting this blog, I’M BACK! hihi ;)) been very busy with work, my son, my husband and … ??
and so for this entry, i’ll feature 007 SKY FALL BOND GIRL LOOK. :)
it should look like this. :D let’s start.
starT with clean face. then apply your concealer foundation primer and whatever that you normally put on your face prior to applying make up.
well, to me it’s bb cream, concealer and powder.
using a dark grey eye shadow, fill in your brows.
i have this ugly and messed up brows and i actually don’t know how to fill it in. hihi ;))
well i guess this time i made a pretty good job. didn’t i? :D
with the same color that you used with your brows, color your lids. gradually build up the color until your happy with the intensity.
now, using your pencil eyeliner line you eyes and water line.
it’s time to curl your lashes and …
apply a generous coat of mascara.
contour your face.
apply a vampy colored lipstick. since i don’t have one i customized. after applying my super red lipstick, i used the same eye shadow color that i used on my eyes. i applied it in the middle of my lower lip and just like magic it turned into a plumy dark red color. :))
see?? magic! haha :))
and you’re done. :*
have fun and good luck! :)
the original plan was not to attend work today because it’ll goin’ to be that same old-same old :: no patients, no laboratory work up, no paper works, no nothing. ever since i was relocated to my institution’s medical and diagnostics area, my everyday work life has been like … NGA-NGA! and so to cut boredom, me and my colleague played with her lapey. i’m glad she brought it with her — REALLY! I’M SO GLAD. LIKE GLADIOLOUS GLAD (is there even a word/phrase like that? :D)
if our big bosses get the chance to see this … WE’RE DEAD! but, wtHORSE?! we had fun … at least. :))
i’ll start my entry with this photo :: RAWR! =))
i witnessed a very intimate wedding today and their vows made me remember my very own wedding, in which i was the happiest woman on earth. :)) so, what’s with the photo? haha. i was preparing for the said wedding (my colleague’s) and i’m planning to have another make-up ek-ek, that’s the first shot i got. camera/tripod wasn’t cooperating so my make-up ek-ek failed. :/
and so … i’ve decided to feature what i wore instead. oh! my camera, still isn’t cooperating. pshh. :/
paint me gray and draw me stripes :) maybe now you understand why i chose that title. :P
dress from unknown; bag from BKK (my in-law’s junk :D); earrings/ring connector from krstnpnrdnd08; cocktail ring from car gonzales; bangles borrowed; shoes from melissa. woot. :))
seriously, that camera and tripod! :/
very elementary. haha :))
” strong women wear their pain like their favorite heels. no matter how it hurts, all you see is it’s beauty. ” :)
here are some of those shots from the said event. i only have the photos taken by the photographer which we hired since the bride hasn’t uploaded anything yet. so please bear with me. :P
congratulations and best wishes Mr. and Mrs. Wilberforce. :))
their princess … so beautiful. :*
You came into my life completely by surprise and you’ve managed to make me the happiest woman in the world. You are the most sincere, caring and loving man, and I wouldn’t trade you for the world. You’re always there for me, a shoulder to lean on, someone to listen to my fears, someone I can share my dreams with, and for that I’ll always be grateful. I love you more than words can say, Thanks for being there when I needed a shoulder to lean on, for patiently listening to my personal problems. I just want you to know how happy am I to have you in my life and I thank God for that. Thank you for the love and the joy you bring. You’ve changed my life.
You’re the only one who gives my heart some excitement and thrills. When I’m with you I feel like I’m out of control. You taught me how to handle life seriously, you taught me how to solve my problems and to face it without any fear… when I’m with you, I feel no fear, not even a single one.
There are no words to express how I feel about you. I constantly search for the words, and they all seem less than I truly feel. You are my life, my heart, and my soul. You are my best friend. You are my one true love.
You are the very air that i breathe, the very love that i need. my heart, my soul, my everything. The sweetest of my memories come when i think of you. I remember the first day that i saw you, i could not believe that i was looking at a human being (kala ko aso e. :P) i pinched myself the hardest one could ever do so as to wake myself up from the drunken stupor i was in. for a moment i believed i was in heaven, when i danced to the music the angels were singing. upon opening my eyes i realized i was not in heaven but that an angel had come down to earth just for me. I can say that you are the sole comforter to me. The only one who took the pain to understand me. You dry every tear that falls down my cheeks. loving you is the best thing that had ever happened to me.
Every night i think of heaven and i’d gotten used to the idea that they are looking for an angel, the one that went missing the day you stepped into my life, the day when all my sorrows were washed away and i took a step into the impossible, crossing the margin from natural to super natural. You are my angel and forever you will be.
I’ve told you so many times, and i still want to tell you again, i really thank god for you in my life. Though at times you did not tell me verbally you care, your actions speaks it all. those little things that you did for me will always be kept in my heart (where you too will always be). I know at times i’m getting out of hand and hard to handle, your patience is always the alternative for us; as a result we don’t quarrel often.
In the past i had always yearned for a relationship that is genuine and lasting; as for all these i found them in you. I’ll make sure that the hand i’m holding will forever be yours wether we are living in fairytale or a non-fairytale world, i still believe that there is such thing as “live happily ever after” and even if you don’t believe it, let’s make it happen.
Ever since you came into my life with this heavenly gift called love i have noticed so many changes in my left alone world. You made me believe that love comes to those who knows how to listen to the music of love. You touched my life in so many ways, like being there for me when all hopes was lost. When i was deserted and thought that the world has come to an end You stood by me all through the rough and though times you made me understand that life is all about appreciation and understanding.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, words cannot express how you make me feel. I make this promise to you my man, to love you the way that you love me. I now look to the future and forget the past, your life is mine and we will make it last. I love you more today than I did yesterday, and I’ll love you more tomorrow than I do today. With all my heart I am forever yours faithfully.
We have been together for years, and I have cherished every moment since the day we met. I love you more and more everyday. Thinking about our future fills me with anticipation and excitement. We will make the great husband and wife team, we are going to have an amazing life together raising a family. All of our dreams are coming true, my man!
Don’t worry about the times that we will be tight on money, I know that we can make it through and get to that place where we’ll have all we ever wanted. Look how much we have already. We have so much to be thankful for. We will just continue to lean on each other, loving and supporting one another with all of the love we have, and we will be just fine.
I’ve never been so certain of anything in my life like I am of us. You have totally changed my outlook in life and I thank you for that. I never thought that someone could love me like you do, guess what? I love you that much too.
Our life together is already amazing, and together it will only get better and better. I will forever be grateful that you came into my life and made all my dreams come true. I will enjoy spending the rest of my life with you.
I love you and for you and pogi, I would do anything. I love you both so much. I would do anything in my power to make you a great person, outstanding father and loving husband. muah. muah. :-*
HAPPY 1825TH MY ANGEL. I LOVE YOU.
my first disappointment came when i tried to find my luck in nursing overseas. — i took a screening test from a rec’t and with all confidence i thought i did a good job, only to find out that I am included into their list of unfortunates who failed. i really felt stupid and i am so sad. but despite me being disappointed, i stayed positive. maybe it’s not for me yet. or maybe, god has a better plan for me. besides, it was my first time. think of those who tried it several times and failed. how’d you think they feel? and so i told myself: “just be thankful with whatever’s happening to you. if it’s good, it’s wonderful. if it’s bad, it’s experience. the best is yet to come. if you get a chance, take it. nobody said it would be easy, but it would be worth it. life is too short to wake every morning with regrets. so love the people who treat you right, forgive the one’s who don’t, and believe that everything happens for a reason. and lastly, JUST SMILE.” :)
