Solar Madness 🌌

It’s been a while, but I’m baaaack ❤

Plus I can finally wear eye makeup!!! And so what better way to celebrate than do a makeup shoot?!??!

This is a shoot I’ve been wanting to do for a while. I got inspired because I saw these cool galaxy contact lenses while I was scrolling through my facebook feed and so I said, “Hey, why not do a shoot like this???” Unfortunately, I still cannot use contact lenses because I’m recovering from an infection (HUHU) and so I decided to just make the face makeup more bongga instead!

I wanted to make this shoot a bit different from the rest and so I decided to do 3 looks: one each representing a different planet. I chose Mars, Neptune and of course, Mother Earth. I chose these 3 planets based on their colors since I wanted a variety! (And so yes, I researched). And for each look, I wanted it to be placed differently on my face and so one is focused on the forehead while the other is focused on half of the face and so on. (you’ll see what I mean hehe)

Anyway, this shoot was pretty simple and I really enjoyed it 💖 It was actually a lot quicker than I thought it would be 😅 Hope you guys like it! Let me know in the comments what you guys think! Looking forward to it xx

1. NEPTUNE

For Neptune, the color palette was full of blues, purples and blue greens (I LOVE THESE COLORS). For my face makeup, I used eyeshadow (YES, that’s a lot of eyeshadow) but the effect was magical – I loved how sparkly and glittery it was. I used the Nubian 2 Palette as well as my Pro 28 Rainbow Mettalics. I then used some face paint sticks with metallic colors, purple, blue and green to kind of add some depth and shape. And then I blended it all in.

For this look, I chose to have bold brows and lips thus the really dark brows and the black lips. I loved the effect and how it looked dark yet magical. Oh, and I used an Acrylic Marker (that writes on ANYTHING) for the stars and constellations. I know, pretty crazy. It was the only thing that worked!!!! (But of course, I made sure that I could easily wash it off by testing it first. The last thing I wanted was a permanent stain on my face. Hahahah anyway, here’s the final look! 💜

2. MARS

I chose Mars as one of my three looks because I wanted to do a pinkish, reddish, goldish look <333 because the colors are beautiful!!! I loved how this turned out!!! I chose to do the half face one for this and I loved the effect. For my face makeup, I used the Nubian 2 palette again! This palette is so pigmented, it’s amaziiiing!!!!

I also used the metallic face paint pens such as orange and pink for more glitter and effect! I decided to keep my brows soft and as for my lips, I chose a red shade but made sure to add a bit of gold in the middle- for a “golden effect”. In the end, I love how this look looks burnt but golden at the same time. Definitely one of my faves ❤️

3. EARTH

Of course, I wouldn’t forget our dear Mother Earth ❤ I decided to do Mother Earth with a twist which is to add some pink! (Cause you don’t see the pink from space right) The pink represents nature – all the pretty flowers!!! For this look, I wanted to kind of make it look like a mask. In the end, I figured I got it right cause when my cousin saw me, he said “Cool mask!” hahahaha. Again, I used the Pro 28 Rainbow Metallics palette as well as the Nubian 2 palette for my face makeup! It’s all about the blues and greens for this look!

For my eyes, I used the face paint pen to mark my under eyes with green and pink for an accent and I really liked the turn out. For my lips, I decided to keep it pink and natural – it was a really good decision because there was a nice contrast between the busy eye area and the chill lip area. Sometimes, simplicity is key 💙

AHHHH I hope you enjoyed looking at the pictures as much I enjoyed painting the look ❤ It’s been a while and so it feels great to be back in the zone! AND, since I’m back, stay tuned for more makeup shoots!!! As well as something new on my blog soon! STAY TUNED Y’ALL ✨

Coachella Fashion: Brave Heart, Free Spirit, Wild Style 🌸

Coachella Season.

One thing I love doing during Coachella season (since I can’t go there myself huhu) is looking at all the fashion outfits and makeup looks! Every year, there is always something new, something fresh, something different and I just love getting the inspiration for more looks!

This year I saw some really great looks and I thought hey, since I have a blog now why don’t I do my own Coachella x LeadiiingLady twist?!? HELL YEAH.

At first I was a bit hesitant to go for it because this is something really new to me. I haven’t posted a fashion blog post before nor have I posted a blog post with me actually modeling. But I thought about what I said in my previous blog post- that I can’t keep holding back because I’m insecure or afraid of what people might think. This is me being me, this is me expressing myself. This is something that I shouldn’t be ashamed of doing. And so after going back and forth, this post finally happened.

This is my first FASHION x MAKEUP POST and so please bear with me 😅 I’m not sure if I’m doing this right but hopefully I am! And if you enjoyed this post, please let me know in the comments section. That way, I can come up with better, more amazing posts for you guys in the future 💜

All fashion and makeup looks were done by me. All photos were taken by my amazing photographer/boyfriend, Boo Gabunada. Again, we’re trying out this MUA x Photographer tandem and it’s going REALLY WELL hehe and so I’ll be posting about a lot of more projects in the near future 😉

***NOTE: Some outfits/makeup looks were inspired by my favorite celebrities & bloggers at Coachella and so I’ll be posting their photos here for your reference!***

FLOWER

For this look, I wanted to go for a feminine, simple and pretty look. Basically – “a breath of fresh air”. Which is why I chose to keep the outfit candid by using a plain white off shoulder top (H&M), a denim jumper (Cotton On) and a pair of beat up white converse (Converse).

For the makeup look, I chose a different take by making my eyes colorful by adding blue, purple, green and yellow eyeshadow under my eyes. Can I just say, I used Hello Gorgeous PH‘s rainbow eyeshadow/highlighter and it is THE BEST. It’s sooo pigmented and the colors are beautiful! Plus it stayed on the whole time!!! Beautiful product indeed! As for my hair, I did a pigtail french braid but it’s not seen 😦 I braided my hair cause I wanted a playful young look in the mix and this hairstyle exhibits just that!

In all, I loved how my makeup complemented my outfit. It gave a lot more life to the look without overpowering it – in the end, I was able to go for that flower child look with a colorful twist.

This next outfit was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers/vloggers, Claudia Sulewski! When I saw what she wore to Coachella Day 1, I told myself I had to include this look! It’s very edgy, boyish and most of all, it doesn’t look like a Coachella outfit at all WHICH MADE ME WANT TO DO IT MORE. Like I said, I love seeing fresh, unique, new outfits and this was it!!!

img_9047-2.png

If I had to choose any one of these outfits to actually wear out, it would be this one. The “boyish” side just calls to me hahaha! For this look, I chose a simple black tank top (Cotton On) and army pants (Cotton On) plus I decided to pair it with sneakers (F21) so that this outfit screams more than just “military!!!” As for my makeup, I used gold, bronze and dark brown for the colors of my eyeshadow and kept it simple with a reddish-ginger shade for my lips c/o my Kylie Liquid Lipstick in shade Ginger. I went for the same hairstyle as Claudia but since my hair is really short, it kept falling and so it ended up looking messier than planned (but tbh I think it made the whole thing looks better)

I love how the whole thing turned out. It had just the right amount of feminine in this boyish look.

This next outfit was pretty much inspired by Kendall Jenner (her outfit in 2014) and another favorite blogger of mine, Griffin Arnlund (her outfit this year). I decided to mix up the two because I liked how my nude crochet top (@holyswimph) looked with my harem pants (from Cambodia). Plus I really love Kendall and Griffin’s fashion style!!!

IMG_9109 2

img_9058-2.png

For this look, I wanted to go for a “pretty pink look” BUT with rainbow cheeks which is why I used the Hello Gorgeous Rainbow Highlighter again this time around but for my cheeks. (I didn’t want to make it too dark though and so I kept it pretty subtle.) As for my eyes, I added a bit more rose gold to the crease to kind of get that rosy look. My lips on the other hand were Revlon (Crimson) x Colourpop Metallic Liquid Lipstick (Maneater) because I wanted them to shine. For this look, I decided to keep my hair down and add a simple flower crown for that “girly” feel.

All in all, I think I ended up with this forest nymph fairy look with a touch of boho which I was happy with. The pictures though are a bit blurry 😦 cause this was the last set we took and we were losing light and so this was the best we could do. Hope you still like them though!

Who doesn’t love Vanessa Hudgens? She is the QUEEN of Coachella. And so this post wouldn’t be complete without recreating one of her best looks! I decided to go with one of the looks she did back in Coachella 2014. I loved this look! It was everything: edgy, girly, boho, summery, floral, etc!!! I tried my best to recreate this look with, of course, my own twist and I *think* it ended up looking good!

IMG_9097 2

IMG_9100 2

My plan for this look was to channel my inner boho! I bought this dress before from Forever 21 but haven’t found the perfect time to use it UNTIL NOW. I also added a black lacey bra under for an extra “hmph” like what Vanessa did with her outfit! The boots are my mom’s (hahaha thanks mom) and as for the hat, I bought it from Cotton On! I chose “boho” accessories to use such as feathers (from Taiwan), chokers, colorful hoop earrings and those “circle shades”.

On the other hand, my makeup stayed pretty simple. All I did was darken my eyebrows a bit more and color my lips a darker shade of red (Revlon Crimson x MAC Paramount). I did this cause I wanted those features to pop. Just a note: when it comes to quick-changing makeup, best to focus on your lips and eyebrows. They only take a short time to fix PLUS they make a HUGE difference! As for my hair, I decided to keep it in a messy halfpony so that it wouldn’t be too “big” under the hat.

But wait! This Coachella post wouldn’t be complete without a look from Vanessa’s best friend, Ashley!!! Again, this is a totally different lookdenim on denim, baby!!! I love denim. It’s my go-to fashion piece when I’m in a hurry or can’t think of anything else to wear. When all else fails, go denim. ANYWAY, I thought this look was really cool and different from the rest which is why I chose to include it in this post.

img_9043.png

For my outfit, I chose a black crop top (Cotton On) under to kind of cancel out all the denim. My denim jacket is from H&M while my BEAUTIFUL pants are from a thrift shop in the States. I’ve had these pants for years but I never wore them out and now I wonder WHYYYY??? because they are beautiful and the details are exquisite! Definitely wearing this out soon! Added a hat from Cotton On and wore high-heeled boots from Forever 21!

This is one of those looks which I spent a long while on hahaha for my makeup, I chose to keep my eyes dark with a bit of bronze for the under part. And if you noticed, I also added bronze dots above my eyebrow line. I would have wanted this to be jewel beads but I couldn’t find any 😦 and so that’s for another post, for sure!!! I used Juvia’s Nubian palette for this because it is SUPER pigmented!!! The color just sticks and so I had no problem making this look.

And omg is that a nose ring I see??? Hahaha dont worry mom, it’s fake hahaha I’m really into the nose ring look right now that I ordered a few from Armstrong and Smith! Their designs are really cute! You should check them out!!! My dream catcher necklace is actually from Boo! It’s from Taiwan! It’s a bit too big to wear to “normal” outings but I decided to wear it here cause it fit the occasion. AND who could miss my “eye” earring!!! Love this piece. It’s very edgy and unique and so I knew that it would go perfect with this outfit!

All in all, this was a super fun look to do! I enjoyed going out of my comfort zone and shooting this!!!

TADAAAAA so that’s what I’ve been working on for the past week!!! 💗 This has been such a fun blog post to shoot and prepare for! It’s way out of my comfort zone especially the fashion part because I have not yet posted a “fashion blog post” – I feel iffy about my style. But after writing that post about embracing and appreciating onself, I decided, what the hell, this is my way of expressing myself! And in the end, I’m proud of this. And I’m proud of myself.

Since I really enjoyed doing this post, stay tuned for way more makeup and fashion shoots coming your way!!! Boo and I are going to be teaming up again for other themed shoots and so if you’re interested to model for us, hit me up! Message me on Instagram/Twitter/Email (leadiiinglady@gmail.com) and I will get back to you asap 💜

Leadiiinglady’s Love List: Make-up 💄

I told you guys before that I would post my make-up love list for you guys and so here it is! In this post, I will be showing you the make-up products I have been loving! What’s great about these are that they are pretty much for everyday looks plus most of them are affordable. Will include where you can buy these products so you guys can check them out! 💕

BB Creams

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

What I love about the Korean BB Creams is that one, they’re very light – most of them have a natural looking finish. Two, they make your skin glow! Like seriously! They give me this kind of glow I never had before. Three, there are so many natural ingredients that help your skin in the process and so it’s like make-up + skincare! What could be better than that? I guess the only unfortunate thing I would say is that most of them only come in 2 shades and so it’s a bit harder for a lot of people to use.

1. Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream (No. 21)

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

This was my first Korean BB Cream! And I love it! When I put it on my skin, it feels so light and yes, there is a glow. This is the perfect everyday BB Cream because the coverage isn’t that great but it covers enough and so your skin can still breathe. I bought this because I wanted to use BB Creams instead of regular foundation because of the pros it has such as SPF, skin lightening and pore tightening. I wanted an everyday BB Cream that could also be a skincare product and this is what I found. I recommend this to those of you who want to sport that no make-up make-up look. Because really, the finish is so natural!

You can buy this on Beauty MNL!

2. The Face Shop Power Perfection BB Cream

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Tbh, I bought this because I wanted more BB creams hahaha I liked the first one so much that I wanted to try out more. This is the one I’ve currently been using. It’s the best-selling BB cream of The Face Shop! And it’s wonderful. I wanted to see if I could find a BB cream with more coverage and I read some reviews saying this was really good and so I decided to try it out. It’s a bit pricey. I think it’s around P1199 in The Face Shop but it’s a huge bottle and I can tell you now it’s worth it!!! The finish is a bit thicker compared to that of Missha but it is still very light. What I love about this is that it stays on! I’ve been having dance rehearsals for the production I’m in and this is what I’ve been using and by the time I’m done with 5 hours of dancing, it’s still there! I would definitely recommend this to those of you who want to try a BB cream that has good coverage but is still lightweight!

You can buy this at any The Face Shop branch!

Concealers

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

These are my two trusty concealers! I know I’ve boasted about them before but here I am to boast about them again 😉 They’re both from the SAEM which is a Korean brand! Note these are VERY AFFORDABLE. Plus they both have SPF and so my love for these two obviously doubles!!! One is for under my eyes and the other one is for scars and blemishes! I usually use two different kinds because I need one to be more moisturizing while I need the other one to have more coverage. And these two work great together and so yay ❤

3. the SAEM Cover Perfection Liquid Concealer

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I use this concealer for under my eyes. I read in reviews that this concealer is very moisturizing and that’s what I need especially for me because my under eyes tend to get dry and I hate it when my fine lines begin to show like ugh so annoying hahaha and so I really researched for a good one and this is what I found. I am so glad I decided to try it out because it works so well for me!!! It is very moisturizing but it still manages to cover up my dark circles! And by the end of the day, my dark circles arent dry but plump and moisturized. Definitely a game changer.

4. the SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

This is the concealer I use for blemishes and scars! The coverage of this one is higher compared to that of the first. And it’s a bit less moisturizing which is why it’s perfect for my skin because I have oily skin! Also, what I love about this concealer is that it’s a perfect dupe for NARS concealer which’s price is like 4 times more??? It covers up my scars really well and it lasts pretty long. You’ll have to re-apply it after a few hours but I don’t mind because it’s also really small and so I can bring it around in my make-up case everywhere I go!

You can buy this on Althea Korea or in different instagram shops that sell Korean products!

Brows & Lashes

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

 I love my brows and lashes and so I want to give them the best look they can get! I got these two in The Face Shop. What I love about them is that they’re really good PLUS they’re super affordable. I got the mascara for P595 and the brow pencil for P285. How awesome is that???

5. The Face Shop Super Proof Mascara

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Before I bought this, I really wanted to find a mascara that could be many things – affordable, waterproof, smudgeproof and not “cumply”. It’s hard to find a mascara with all four properties BUT I have to say that I found all of them in this one! This is a very light mascara. The finish is pretty light which I really appreciate because I use this for my everyday make-up look. It is not cumply AT ALL. It’s very thin and it looks natural! Also, this mascara is smudgeproof and waterproof! I have a tendency of rubbing my eyes a lot especially when I have contacts on and I would hate it when the mascara would rub onto my under eyes because I have really dark circles to begin with and so when that happens, I look like a zombie ugh. And so I love how this doesn’t do that. Be sure to take it off with a make-up cleanser though or eye make-up remover cause it’s a bit hard to remove but I guess that is what comes with having super proof mascara hahaha

6. The Face Shop Style My Eyebrows Eyebrow Pencil

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

What I love about this eyebrow pencil is that you really see it. It’s not like one of those eyebrow pencils that are so light you can’t even tell the difference??? With this one, I can really shape my eyebrow and shade in all the necessary parts (like my scar). Also, this really stays! Like I said, I’ve been having dance rehearsals in a non-airconditioned place but even though I’ve been sweating for hours, I’d look in the mirror and my brows still exist. All thanks to this! And guess what’s the best part? It only costs P285! So go and buy yourself one now! 😉

You can buy both of these at any The Face Shop branch!

Eyeshadow Palettes

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

These are the two palettes I use all the time whether it be for everyday make-up or heavy make-up. They’re a bit pricey because they’re from high end make-up brands BUT their colors are beautiful. I’m sure you’ll use them more than once! I don’t usually use eyeshadow for my natural make-up look, but when I do, I just apply a bit of a light pinkish nude on my lids and sometimes shimmer to give me that “bright-eyed look”.

7. Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Palette

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

This is my go-to palette for most of my eyeshadow base colors. It is a very neutral palette with browns, pinks, yellows, basically the neutral colors. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t use this palette because the colors are just very versatile, you can use these colors for the base or crease or whatever you want. They are also very pigmented and so you don’t have to apply too much to give your lids color. My favorite colors for my everyday look are super mom and natural beauty. Super mom is a very light shade of pink, very subtle and classy. Natural beauty is a beautiful pinkish nude that I like using all the time! If you guys need a palette with good neutral colors and one that you want to use all the time, I would recommend this one for you!

You can buy this in Sephora or online instagram beauty shops!

8. Juvia’s Nubian 2 Palette

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I admit that this is one of my “out there” palettes. When I first got this palette I was like, what am I going to do with these colors??? Eventually, I realized this palette really works well for my Disney Princess looks (which is pretty much my job) and there are some colors I could incorporate in my everyday look. My favorite colors from this palette would be Zuri, Morocco and Madagascar. Zuri is a light bronze color, very glittery and pigmented which I LOVE. I think you can tell that I use it a lot… hahaha just look at it. Morocco on the other hand is the perfect shade of orange. You know how orange is an “in color” right now? As in, having the perfect shade of orange is super important. This is my perfect shade of orange! Madagascar on the other hand is a really brown shade, I like using this for my crease or at the tips of my lids for a subtle smokey eye effect. Again, this eyeshadow palette is very pigmented and perfect for those who need some color in their lives!

You can buy this on many instagram beauty shops!

Lipsticks

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Aside from my trusty NYX Soft Matte lippies, these are the other lipsticks I’ve been loving! Happy Skin Disney and Kylie Lippie Mattes are my loves. These are all very pigmented lipsticks which I appreciate. I love lipsticks, it’s one of the make-up products I really spend on – thus my choice of favorite lipsticks. They’re a bit on the pricey side but I can tell you that they’re worth it!

9. Happy Skin x Disney Lipsticks

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

These are my loves!!! Note, I don’t only use these for work, I also use them for my everyday make-up look! I just love the colors. They are very pigmented, versatile and different! I could use the Aurora Lipstick for a day time hangout, I could use the Anna Lipstick for a date night and I could use Elsa Lipstick for a club party! What’s a big plus is that these lipsticks are SUPER MOISTURIZING! I get chapped lips real easily and so it helps that I have a lipstick + lip balm in one. That’s why I find these very handy and I always make sure I have one in my make-up bag!

You can buy these in Beauty Bar, Zalora or from the Happy Skin Website!

10. Kylie Cosmetics Holiday Mini Mattes

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

This was the first Kylie Cosmetics product I ever purchased. I purchased the whole Holiday Mini Mattes Kit but I only really used these three colors and so far, they have been amazing! These are the shades Ginger, Love Bite and Moon. Ginger has a bit of a…. ginger shade hahahaha I actually wrote about it in one of my blog posts before! Check it out here! 🙂 Moon is a nudish brown, it looks a bit darker on me cause I’m light-skinned but I don’t mind cause I like the shade. Love Bite on the other hand is a dark purple shade, similar to the Elsa shade and so I also use this sometimes when I play Elsa. A note about these lippies though is that it’s VERY IMPORTANT to moisturize your lips! Put lip balm before putting these on so that your lips won’t be too dry since they’re matte!

You can buy this on the Kylie Cosmetics website or from Kylie Cosmetics MNL which is where I bought mine! It’s 100% safe and legit!

Blush

11. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Sensual

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

This is my go-to everyday blush! It supposed to stay for 12-hours and that’s what it does! I love the color sensual because it’s a peachy nude which looks good on my light skin. It’s very pigmented but is still very subtle and natural looking. These are one of those make-up products that I would buy again and again after I’ve run out. It’s a bit pricey but super worth it. I’ve been using this for 4 months straight and it’s as if I haven’t scratched the surface, there is still so much left and that makes me happy 🙂

Buy this now in Sephora or an online instagram beauty shop!

Highlighter

12. Anastasia Glow Kit in Sun-dipped

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

This is my favorite highlighter palette. Like ever. This is it!!!!! hahaha the colors are beautiful and they are super duper pigmented! If you wanna check out the glow it gives, check out my everyday make-up blog post here! The glow is beautiful and pigmented but still very subtle. My favorite shade would be Summer because it’s a color I can use everyday. It’s very light as compared to the others. I use Tourmaline or Moonstone when I’m doing my stage make-up while I use Bronzed for really dark make-up looks such as when I’m Princess Jasmine. This palette is a bit pricey. But there is so much product (this palette is HUGE) and four different colors PLUS they really deliver and so I’d like to think it’s worth the price!

You can buy this on any online instagram beauty shop!

Make-up Beauty Tools

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Make-up tools are as important as the make-up products themselves. Don’t forget though to clean these tools regularly because they are the ones that touch your face and you wouldn’t want dirty make-up tools to cause you to break out. Here are some of my favorite make-up tools!

13. Happy Skin Air Touch Sponge

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I got this because I really wanted to find a sponge that was soft and has good quality but still very affordable (I think Beauty Blenders are crazy over priced) and this is what I found. It’s still pretty pricey but at least it’s lower than P600. What I like about this sponge is that it’s pretty, it’s made so it can be used for many things (there are different parts of the sponge that are used for different parts of your face) and you caneither wet it for a softer application or keep it dry! I love the finished look it leaves on my face. It’s an airbrushed blended kind of look! And so if you guys need a sponge but do not want to spend so much for a beauty blender, this is for you!

You can buy this at the Beauty Bar or on the Happy Skin website!

14. Oval Paddle Brushes

These are the brushes I use all the time!!! But the one I use the most is the foundation brush. I just love the kind of finish it leaves on my skin. When it comes to using other brushes and sponges, there are times when the finish is too thick and so it doesn’t set right and ends up smudging everywhere. And the thing is I have oily skin and so if my make-up doesn’t set it becomes runny and gross. This brush helps spread the foundation out and blends it really well onto my skin. And so if you guys are looking for a foundation brush that doesn’t leave a too thick finish but still manages to give the right coverage, this is it!

You can buy this on online instagram beauty shops for very affordable prices!

15. Pure Brush Shampoo from Suesh

Of course when you have make-up tools, you need to have soaps/shampoos to clean those tools especially your sponger and brushes. This is my go-to brush shampoo. This is only P100 pesos! It really takes off all the dirt and make-up off the make-up brushes. What I love about this is that it also works well with my make-up sponges as well. I can literally see the make-up come off the sponges, especially when I squeeze them. It’s crazy! hahaha just a note, make sure to clean your make-up tools regularly. I like to clean my brushes and sponges once a week because I really use them a lot plus I have sensitive skin and so this really prevents dirt from getting on my tools and causing my face to break out!

You can buy this in any Suesh branch!
