31 Days of Makeup: Day 14- 3 lip looks is to 1 Eye look + Beginner’s Guide

Okay, so now we are going to nail two posts in one. This is a 31 days of makeup post as well as a beginner’s guide post. You can expect this to be a little longer than my other 31 Days of makeup posts since it is a beginner’s guide. And since I’ll also be posting this on my personal facebook account (since a beginner’s eye and lip coordination post was requested by a friend) I’ll try to refrain from saying/typing any profanity in this post… Yes ladies and gentlemen this is the first general audiences friendly post in this blog.

So, like what I said in this “post” (which you should probably look at first) where I discussed the do’s and dont’s when you are still starting with makeup, I said that you should stick to neutrals at first. Why use neutrals and not those blue, pink, and pastel shades that are being sold at teens section of makeup stores? Because neutrals are the most newbie friendly eyeshadow shades that there is. For one, you can still get away without blending these neutral eyeshadows. If you are still new and you can’t blend to save your life, yet; these shadows are more forgiving, compared to purple that can look harsh if you don’t blend it properly.

Also, I recommend matte shades to start with, why mattes? Because mattes, specially lighter colored ones can work as a single shadow eye look. Single shadow eyelook means that you’ll only use a single eyeshadow from lid up to the crease, then you’ll put on your mascara and eyeliner then call it a day.

Not to mention that you can do a lot of looks with just a small all matte palette like these two:

These two matte palettes are also the palettes I used on the first two photos in this post as well as the photos below. I used a mixture of some of the shades. And with only that one neutral eye look I managed to coordinate three lip looks.

As you can see here a neutral eye can work on nude lips or bold lips. it can also work on matte lips and glossy lips, these eye looks will definitely look good with some metallic lipsticks as well.

A neutral eye is the safest choice there is; since it can work with almost any lip color there is. And not to mention that it will look good with any eyeliner shape, eye shape and eye color.

So I hope this post helped you in any way, shape or form.

That’s all for now folks and see you all later! 😀

 

What to Do or NOT to Do When You Are Still Starting with Makeup

Everything has a beginning; your birth is the beginning of your life, nursery is the beginning of your school life and just like that there is also a beginning when it comes to your makeup life. If you are a teenager or just someone who would like a head start with makeup then this is for you.

Let’s get started shall we!

  1. Don’t use red lipstick- Why should you avoid red lipsticks for now? A red lip is very high maintenance, you can fuck it up as easily as you can fuck up with using chopsticks for a beginner. What you should do is start gradually by using nudes and baby pinks and if you manage to not have lipstick on your teeth, or completely avoided your lipstick bleeding out of your lip line throughout the day then you might be ready for a red lipstick.
  2. Do use a product with Sunscreen- Or just get a sunscreen in general. You need protection from harmful UV rays. A lot of people takes this fact for granted. Don’t be one of those people, trust me your skin will thank you if you protect it as early as you can.
  3. Get Hypo allergenic products- If you are still starting then you might probably still don’t know anything about ingredients yet, which ones you are allergic with or which ones agrees with your skin; so I personally think that it is safer for you if you start with something that is tested to not cause any damage to sensitive skin.
  4. Go for drugstore brands- Or go for the affordable option. Because experimenting should not be expensive, that simple.
  5. Play safe- Read reviews first before buying something, and ask yourself “Am I gonna use this?” everytime before buying things.
  6. Don’t wear too much STUFF!!!! Please don’t pile too much stuff on your face specially if it’s hot outside.
  7. Stay with neutral eyeshadows, at least until you learn how to blend properly.
  8. Get a nice starter brush set- if you will invest in an expensive item; invest on this. Don’t choose brushes with scratchy bristles.
  9. Use good quality face makeup-  This means concealer, BB creams, foundations and powders. They don’t have to be too expensive but invest in good ones.
  10. Get your brows shaped by a professional. Nuff said.
  11. Don’t wear eyeliner ONLY on your bottom lash line/waterline. If you leave your top lash line bare while lining your bottom ones will make your eyes look heavy and saggy. WEAR LINER ON YOUR TOP LASH LINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  12.  Get a good lip balm. Moisturize your lips properly.
  13. Stick to light, matte blushes- just in case you get heavy handed on your first few tries. You don’t want to look like you’ve been slapped.
  14. Get good quality lash curlers. They don’t have to be expensive, but please stay away from those Php10.00 each curlers.
  15. Get a waterproof mascara.
  16. Don’t wear white while putting on your makeup.

BTW: I have Facebook Page “Here”!!!

I hope that this may help you all in some way, that’s all for now and see you all later!!!!! 😀
