Makeup Art: Flowers, the Sky and the Sea ๐Ÿ’œ

Hi guys! So I’m back again with ANOTHER makeup shoot ๐ŸŒธ

If you noticed, the title of this blog post has the word ‘art’ in it. That’s because to do these makeup looks, I used my ‘artsy side’.ย I love to paint. My favorite kind of paint is acrylic. It’s been an interest of mine since I was in HS.ย If you came into myย room, the first thing you would notice are the bunch of canvases displayed all around. These are paintings I’ve done since I was 14 years old.

For this shoot, I wanted a makeup x painting kind of look. And so I decided to focus onย two things: the eyes and the lips. Good thing my model, Ylo has both beautiful eyes and lips (hehe love u). She’s my good friend and she’s beautiful! Check out her IG here! ๐Ÿ™‚

I did two looks for this shoot, a floral makeup look & a sky and sea makeup look. Hope you guys like them! All photos were taken and processed by me ๐ŸŒธ

***

For the first look, I did a ‘floral summary kind of look’. For her eyeshadow base, I used Juvia’s Nubian Palette. I used the light bronze and glittery orange shade. I darkened her crease with the Naked Basics Palette. For her liner, I used my metallic green face paint stick and for the liner under her eye I used an orange metallic color. The flowers on her eyes were done using face paint and a super tiny paint brush. It was really hard to do the flowers because the face paint was slippery and so sometimes it wouldnt stay and so I had to really use a lot of paint. To finish up this look, I used Revlon’s Crimson lipstick for her lips! It just complements her eye makeup beautifully! (Also look at her skin color! It’s GORGEOUS! Perfect for this look ๐ŸŒž)

For the second look, I used cool tones and so yes, super opposite of the first look. I wanted to paint (symbolically) the sky and sea on her face. It was quite difficult. But in the end, the look worked. I couldn’t help but sing “how far I’ll go” while doing this because seriously… “see the line where the sky meets the sea, it calls meeee”! ๐ŸŒŠ

For this look, I really played around. I didn’t have a solid planย when I started. I just had an idea that I wanted there to be some sort of sea and sky. For her eyeshadow base, I used my Pro 28 Rainbow Metallics eyeshadow palette! The blue colors are sooo pretty! I used three shades of blue: sky blue, dark blue and blue green. I also used Juvia’s Nubian Palette for this certain shade of dark blue. For the clouds on her eyes, I used white face paint. The clouds are so cute hahahaha and then I finished up her eyes by adding blue glitter. I always freak out when I work with glitter cause it gets everywhere but it just completes the look and so I had to use it! For her lips, I used the metallic blue face paint stick and added glitters for one half and white face paint + blue face paint for the other half. It supposed to represent the deep part of the sea (the dark side) and the shore (the light side).

All in all, it wasn’t an easy look to do (it was quite messy) but it was really fun! And look the pictures are nice!!!

Glossier Love ๐Ÿ’•โ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒธ

Hi guys! ๐ŸŒˆ

So I’m squeezing in this short review of the Glossier products I have right now cause people have been asking me about them and soooooo, here you go! โค๏ธ To those contemplating whether on spending on these Glossier products, I hope this helps you out! ๐Ÿ™‚

The current products I have right now are the Glossier Priming Moisturizer and two Cloud Paints: Haze & Dusk! I’m still waiting for my boy brow which I can’t wait to try!!!

Glossier Priming Moisturizer

Bottom line: I love this primer. It’s the best one for me so far! It’s not heavy at all and the best part is, it really moisturizes. I get really dry skin sometimes depending on the weather and so it’s great to have a primer that hydrates my skin.

I wasn’t able to take a picture (huhu) but so you guys know, it has quite a slippery texture – and it has a white color (kinda looks like Johnson’s baby lotion). It’s not super thick and so it’s easy to spread. I usually use a pea sized amount for my everyday makeup look but for days that require heavier makeup, I use a bit more!

What I also like about this priming moisturizer, is that it helps my makeup stay longer but doesn’t leave it looking “patchy”. It ends up giving me a dewy look which I super loveeeee. I just have to use blotting paper sometimes but it’s ok, I always have one in my bag anyway.

And so if you guys want a primer that isn’t too heavy, moisturizes your skin and that is good for everyday use, this could be it for you!

It’s $25, a bit pricey but I’d like to think it’s worth it!

Glossier Cloud Paint

I was never really into liquid blush but this here is definitely a game changer! I love the natural look and so you can just imagine how obsessed I got with this product. It gives off the PERFECT natural look! The paint isn’t too heavy or too light, it’s just right. Plus, I love the variety of colors they have! I only ordered 2 though but to be honest, because of how much I love them, I’m thinking of getting the other two aaaahhhhh ๐Ÿ™ˆ They’re $18 each and $30 of you buy 2!

DUSK


Dusk is the perfect pinkish nude color. It’s very natural-looking and perfect for your everyday look. I like using peach blush as compared to pink blush and so when I saw this color, I knew I had to get it! It gives me that rosy look but not the pink kind of rosy look, the orange-ish kind, if you guys know what I mean. I like using this color with dark lipstick shades to contrast the light blush.

Here are some of the shots I took with Dusk so that you can see what it looks like on a human person hahaha (btw I’m using the priming moisturizer as my base)




As you can see, it gives me a bright “peachy” look and I like how it complements my red lips and dark brows. Can you guys see the swatch on my arm??? If you do, you’ll see how pink nude it is and how PRETTY it is โค๏ธ

HAZE

To be honest, I was a bit hesitant at first to buy Haze. I was debating between getting either Haze or Puff! I was afraid that Haze would look to dark on me but I super loved the color and so I decided to buy it anyway and just figure it out later on. Luckily, it looks beautiful on light-skinned people too!!! It gives that flushed pink look that you usually get after a great workout which makes me feel really good hahaha I like pairing it up with nude lipsticks to kind of contrast the dark pink pigment on my cheeks.

It is not as subtle as Dusk but it’s still natural looking – just a bit more on the pink side. I don’t usually wear pink blush but I like how this looks on me. It’s not too pink, it’s just right. Just be careful though not to put too much! That actually goes for all the cloud paints! LESS IS MORE. Also, it’s a pretty tiny tube so I’m sure you guys would want to make it last!




(Please don’t mind my “not threaded” eyebrows and my eyebags and all the flaws hahaha it’s me trying to be confident in my own skin ๐Ÿ˜…)

I bought these on Makeup Depot! Check out their Instagram here! You can buy these products also on the Glossier site! ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway that’s it for this review! I have yet to review my other glossier products and so stay tuned for that! Also, stay tuned for a very special post coming out next week ๐Ÿ’– Again, keep your messages and comments comin’!!!! I am reading every one of them โค๏ธ Happy Easter guys!!!! โ˜บ๏ธ
