My Everyday Makeup

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.

How to Use Chopsticks

This gallery contains 2 photos.

Using chopsticks can be very tricky and it requires a LOT of practice…and PATIENCE. Worry no more! Here’s a simple guide on how to use chopsticks…

What you’ll need:

pair of chopsticks
your dominant hand
food for practice (I used uncooked popcorns in my demo.)

Steps:

Hold one of the chopsticks like a pen using your index finger, middle finger and thumb. This is the part that moves to pick up food. Actually, the index and middle finger are the ones that moves more while the thumb supports them.

Insert the other chopsticks underneath, resting on the ring finger. This should be the immovable part.

Pick up food by clipping them in between. Remember, don’t put pressure on it.

Don’t be disappointed if it doesn’t work the first time. Patience is a virtue. πŸ™‚ And one more, you can ALWAYS ask for spoon and fork if you’re not comfortable with it.
