light e/s attempt + liquid foundation application for shiana
Hi everyone.. :D I know you have seen me in bold, wild and smokey colors.. One thing I can not do well until now is light and everyday makeup. I really have a hard time choosing the right colors and just making it light. I tend to overdo it all the time. :C I am envious with some asian bloggers who just look so flawless with light makeup! yay! So,, here is my attempt to light e/s.. I think it looks ok. how about you?
Products Used: 78 pc. e/s palette from coastal scents avon makeup fresh radiance makeup base as primer avon super shock mascara nichido liquid eyeliner milani color brilliance in black
^ i had this for quite some time now but never used that much. perhaps used this 2x as blush highlighter. I really thought it would be comparable with the body shop's glow enhancer but to my dismay.. it is not even an inch at par with it.. i tried using it today as e/s base. And i liked it. The consistency is also great. Very blendable. It does not add that much vibrancy to e/s but it does make my e/s stay in place. yey.. so,, this thing will not go to waste after all..
^^ lids with fresh radiance makeup base.. blended with foundation. see.. not noticeable..
Next stop,, Shiana, a reader, asked me how do i apply my liquid foundation. I perceive liquid foundation as a base rather a foundation that you could use by itself. I am using Maybelline Angelfit foundation which I really love.. consistency wise and coverage. :D I also have L'oreal True match in nude amber (a darker shade of golden beige foundation) I hate looking ghostly on the pictures and in real life so i mixed both foundations to get my perfect shade. crazy? i think it is ingeniuos.. haha well, girls like me who is neither fair nor dark are probably the ones who have the hardest time looking for perfect color match.. (just my weird opinion.. hihi) So,, here are my simple steps to liquid foundation application.
I have dry skin so i make sure my skin is well moisturized before anything else. Other people would apply primer first.. but i always skip this part that is why i sold my the face shop span primer at ebay..
^^my moisturizer is st. ives.
On not so busy days, I use foundation brush (elf) in applying liquid foundation. I just wished I have a softer and fuller foundation brush because using foundation brush rather than your fingers is better,, imo. It is more hygienic and the application is more even. :D (Any recommendation on cheap foundation brush other than ecotools?)
Conceal dark spots or other impurities. I use VOV concealer and I finish it with a layer of powder foundation or mineral foundation. :D
^^ please don't mind my puffy eyes and chapped lips.. just me with foundation.. :S
