Here’s how I do my makeup routine…
I start it by cleansing my face with Neutrogena Deep Clean facial cleanser. I like this facial cleanser because I can really feel that it cleanses deep down my face, removing dirt and oil. And yes, I have an oily face. Then, I rinse and wipe it off.
Afterwards, I use Fresh Skinlab’s Jeju Aloe Ice wipes. This is actually a makeup remover. However, I like wiping my face with this before applying makeup because it has a cooling effect on the skin. Aside from that, I feel like it cleanses my face more and hydrates my skin too!
Next, I apply makeup base by Jazzy Collection. I only put small amount on my palm (about 3 drops) and it can already cover my entire face. Sometimes, I use Myra’s Vitaglow BB cream as base.
Then, I apply Ever Bilena’s Pro Flawless Finish Foundation (liquid) and blend it well with blending brush. For the dark circles in my eyes, I use Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind which is a treatment concealer for dark circles. I like this product because it does its job well and it’s easy to apply. You just need to twist it until the product reaches the brush portion and then you apply it directly. Then, I use Ever Bilena’s Concealer stick (medium shade), to cover scars, pimples (if there’s any), as well as the deep lines at the side of my nose (in between nose and corner of lips) on my face. Then, I cover everything with EB Advance Compact Powder, in the shade of natural white.
Now, the most important part for me… The eyebrows! Before the “drawing” begins, I brush my eyebrows to condition the hair as to make them go in one direction. 🙂 I use two shades: dark and light brown. I first use EB Advance’s Brow Define with Paddle Brush, dark brown shade, to line/shape my eyebrows. Then, I use the light brown shade to fill the inside. And finally, I brush it with the cute, tiny paddle brush found at the opposite end of the eyebrow liner.
For my eyes, I use DoDo Girl’s Glam Eyeshadow. I apply the reddish brown first, followed by nude color and then yellowish shade to clean the ends/sides of my eyebrow makeup. So, this technique is going up from the base of my eyelid. For the eyeliner, I either use Careline’s Graph-Ink Liner or Ever Bilena’s Pro Eye Liner, both are waterproof. The first one is easier to apply because it’s like a liquid but messier if mistakenly applied it. Apply as thin s you can. I start from the middle going to the outside corner and then from inside corner going to the middle.
Let’s move on to the cheeks! My favorite is Ever Bilena’s Lip & Cheek Roller, the shade is uptown red. I don’t put it directly on my face so as avoid having dotted-like blush. What I do is, I roll a small amount on my fingers, and then apply it on my cheeks. Then, I use Maybelline’s Master Chrome metallic highlighter above my blush on, following my cheek bones. Then I top them off with a very, very light amount of Johnson’s Baby Powder.
Finally, my lips. Depending on my mood, I either use Ever Bilena’s Matte Lipstick in the shade of vogue diva (dark red) or Nichido’s Satin Moist Lipstick in the shade of honeylove (nude). Then I use Maybelline’s Master Chrome metallic highlighter again and put some in my lips’ cupids bow.
Here’s the final look 🙂
