That Look: The 500 Pesos Makeup Challenge

Hello MLI readers!! I finally had the chance to do the 500 pesos makeup challenge. I was thinking of doing the 20$ makeup challenge but that would be too easy for me since I have loads of makeup that I could just readily use for the challenge. I really had a hard time finding the products to make this look. I was in search for weeks and was computing all the time while shopping for the products I have used. Haha 500 pesos was just to stiff for a complete makeup look. This makeup tag was started by Char of Yellowyum and Gem of Rarevanity. The challenge was to create a look using 500 pesos worth of makeup products. The good thing was the brushes are not included in the 500 pesos ceiling. 
Since I do not have a primer, I used the black eyeliner as my base. I applied the black eyeliner all over my lid upto the crease area. 
The eyeshadow palette I got was too powder so I just packed the shadow on my lid area extending above the crease. I wet the brush I used with a bit of water to make the application of the e/s easier. 
To intensify the look, I smudged the black liner on the outer V of my eye and blended the harsh edges with my Virginia Olsen Blending Brush. Then, I sweep some gold eyeshadow above the crease area. 
Make sure you highlight the inner corners of your eye, I use a lighter yellow  gold. Thereafter, I lined my lid with a black liquid liner.  No matter how dark my eyeshadows are, they tend to disappear especially when I open my eyes. You can refer to the photo of my whole look.  So, I skipped mascara and  bought falsies instead to make my eyes look more dramatic.
I had a hard time doing my brows because I only have a black eyeliner. I used the black eyeliner for tightlining and as an eyeshadow base as well. With a light hand and feathering strokes, I drew the outline of my brows and I applied some brown matte eyeshadow to blend the color. 
I tried using my liquid eyeliner to coat my lower lashes but it simply did not work. Also, I used my pressed powder to highlight my brow bone since the palette I bought only contain shimmery eyeshadows. Also, I prefer using matte eyeshadow on my brown bone because it creates a cleaner look and it emphasizes my brows better than shimmery shades.  

The products I used are:
For the face, I used Careline Pressed Powder in Natural. I find this powder really hard to blend on my dry skin. However, the shade is really wearable. I thought that it would look way too light on my skin but it blended well with my skin tone. The San San Liquid foundation only costs 100 pesos because I bought it on sale before. Hehe... 
For the lips, I used my favorite Careline Lipgloss in 101. This lipgloss is too opaque; I can skip the lip liner. 
I bought this eyeshadow palette for only 40 pesos. Yes. This was a palette you can see in the tiangge or 168. I preferred using this because 100 pesos palette from Nichido or Careline was just too pricey for this challenge.. haha 
Pinkie Swear Cosmetics is a sister company of James Cooper Cosmetics. I was in search for a good matte brown eyeshadow for contouring and for my brows. I was lucky enough to find this. I used this eyeshadow as a contouring powder and as abronzer blush. :)
My favorite was this black liquid liner which only costs 30 pesos. It is so pigmented and smudge proof. I swear I want to get more of this. 
The Nichido Eyeliner turned out to be okay. It was not too black like that of their Mineral Kohl Pencil but it did a fairly good job. I used this for tightlining too and it is a bit creamy. 
Time and again, you would hear me say that the best false lashes for me are from HBC. 20 pesos falsies is such a steal. 

I love the coverage of my San San Liquid Foundation paired with the Careline Pressed Powder . However, I had a hard time covering my dark circles. I really need a concealer to cover it. I tried doubling the layer of liquid foundation under my eye area but it turned out to be too cakey. The Deep Brown Eyeshadow from Pinkie Swear Cosmetics amazed me. I think in the picture and in real life, you could never tell that I was wearing an eyeshadow and not a true bronzer/contour powder. It has a very nice texture and I did not have a hard time blending the color. 




What do you think of my 500 pesos makeup challenge look?

I would love to see your look using 500 pesos worth of makeup products.



Godbless everyone!

  10. Lining your eyes all around (ie upper lash line and lower water line) w/ black makes your eyes look really really small. A bit beady as well.

    1. hi!! Thank you so much for your comment.. I noticed that too.. :) However, I prefer it that way.. I got used to doing this routine.. :) ( tightlining my eyes and lining my lower lash line with black liner).. I will try to do a post with less of this technique.. (hopefully.. :))

      as for this post, i am limited to using the aforesaid black liner because it is a challenge.. Thanks so much godbless you.. :)
