It’s time to put on a glamorous look!!!

Hello pretty ladies,

Any plans tonight? Maybe house party? clubbing? or just hanging out at the lounge with your friends? Let’s look glamorous tonight!!

Today, I am going to show you a glamorous champagne eye make up to prepare you for tonight!!

My winning pallette for today’s look will be from Lorac Mega Pro.

So here we go:

  1. Prime… Prime Prime… before any eyeshadow application (Primer: Urban Decay Eden) and with your finger, dab lightly an all over base on your eyelid. For the base, I am using the cream base from Etude house (Look at my eyes pearl shadow base). This will intensify the eyeshadow color later when u apply it on.
  2. Apply a nude base color all over your eyelid up to your brow bone (Lorac Mega Pro: cream)
  3. With a medium size brush (Sigma E25), apply a light color as the transition color along your crease and blend it nicely in a windshield motion back and forth with a light hand (Lorac Mega Pro: Khaki)
  4. Apply a champagne color on the eyelid area. (Lorac Mega Pro: Cashmere) and apply a lighter color right on the middle of the eyelid area to pop the champagne color even more (Lorac Mega Pro: Opal)
  5. Apply a darker color on the outer corner of your eyes; don’t apply it too much and not too high as well. It is just to add a dimension to your eyes and create a proper gradient color (Lorac mega Pro: Caviar)
  6. Lastly, apply your favourite eyeliner and create a soft wing to it, then you can finish your eye makeup look by applying a nice natural false lashes

Isn’t that simple?? Try it on girls and get ready to look glamour for your party tonight!!!

Summer goes Matte

summer

Summer and Matte… isn’t it just a perfect combination for the day look? Personally, I love shimmer colours, but since the sun out there is bright enough, I think it’s time to really bring out our matte colours!!

For today’s look, I will be using my LORAC Pro 2 palette, and my tropic colour theme for today will be on the purple shade.

So let me show you how I did this look:

  1. Eye Primer before everything. Why? Because eye primer will prolong your eye make up and intensify the colour.
  2. For the base colour shadow, I am using “BUFF” all over my eyes.
  3. As the point colour, I am using “Nectar” all over my eyelid. Dab it as you apply the colour. Dabbing will intensify the colour compared to sweeping it all over.
  4. As for the corner colour, I am using “PLUM” from the Pro 2 palette. Starting from the outer corner of your eyes, dab a little of this colour and lightly sweep it in and out around the corner of your eyes to create a softer blend. Keep blending until it reaches the intensity that you desire.
  5. To finish off the eye makeup, I created slight slanted winged eyeliner. This will add a dramatic effect to your eyes (especially for those of you who has small eyes like me).
  6. Curl your lashes and apply some mascara.

To finish off your overall make up, don’t forget to apply some blush and your favourite colour of lippies!!!

Isn’t this simple girls?? Try it out!! ☺

Summer is here… Time for Korean Make up!

Hi LaRegazzeans,

Don’t you think that Korean makeup is the most suitable make up style for summer? In my opinion, Korean make up style will give our faces the most natural look under the sun.

And so….My theme for today’s make up is “LOOKING NATURAL”. So remember girls, apply everything lightly… not too much please… it won’t look nice under the sun.

Now, I will share with you all on how I did my Korean look for this summer.

 

Face makeup:

Verina Antonio

  1. Apply daily skincare (toner, serum, moisturizer) and primer before any make up. (Primer: Missha BB Boomer)
  2. Why BB cream and NOT foundation? Because BB cream contains more vitamins and UV to protect your skin from the sun. In terms of texture, BB cream is less “cakey” compared to foundation… Which is perfect for our summer natural look! (BB cream: IOPE BB Cushion #C21)
  3. But, since BB cream doesn’t have a high, full coverage like foundation does, you might need to use a concealer to cover all your dark spots and acne.
  4. Apply loose powder all over the face especially on the most oily area of your face, therefore acting as a setting powder (Loose powder: Smashbox Halo Hydrating Powder; Fair/Light)

 

Eyebrow:

Korean Eye Brow

Tips for Korean eyebrow: Draw a smooth flat line along the bottom of the brow, and outline a smooth little arch for the top of your eyebrow. Fill it with eyebrow mascara.

(Eyebrow Pencil: TonyMoly Easy Touch; Brown)

(Eyebrow mascara: Etude House Colour My Brow; #1)

 

Eye Shadow

Eye Shadow

  1. Apply crayon eye shadow (Nature’s republic ECO Crayon eyes; #1) all over the eyelid. Enhance the color by dabbing some powder eye shadow color on top of it (Too faced Natural eyes pallete; Color is Silk Teddy). Blend it nicely.
  2. Using a darker colour on the outer corner of the eye for gradient. Do not put too much, because remember you want to achieve a natural look. (Too faced Natural eyes pallete; Color is Cashmere Bunny)

 

Eye Liner

  1. Pencil Eyeliner along the tight lines (Stilla waterproof eyeliner; dark brown)
  2. Gently draw a winged eyeliner along your upper lashline, but keep the wing horizontal. (Recommendation: wing is no longer than 3 mm) (Dolly Wink liquid liner; Dark Brown)
  3. Using a lighter brown eyeliner, draw a halfway line along your lower lashline (Faceshop Make me Star waterproof Gel liner; #102)
  4. Add some more effect by applying a bright sparkly Tear liner on the inner corner of your eyes and halfway across the lower lashline. This creates a highlighting effect to your eyes (TonyMoly Crystal lovely eyes; Gold)

 

Finishing

    1. Curl your lashes and apply your favourite mascara on the lashes
    2. Dab a light Blush (pink or orange color will work) on your cheekbone. Do not put too much as the colour will pop up even more under the sun (Millani; Corallina)
    3. Using a small contour brush, create an outline starting from your inner brow then all the way down vertically towards end of your nose. Blend the contour lines nicely. (NYC Bronzer)
    4. Highlight the bridge of your nose and upper cheeks just above your blush to add glow to your face (Benefit; Watt’s Up)
    5. Apply red lip tint with a cotton bud. Korean girls love gradient lips by applying the darkest red colour on the inner lips and go lighter towards the outer lips.

In the Nude – theBalm’s Nude’tude Palette Review

NudeTude

Nude makeup is (and always has been) trending in the makeup scene. It is the go-to look for those who love the soft, earthy, and neutral shades that are usually around the pink, brown, maroon and gold colours like Urban Decay’s Naked3 and Mac’s 15 Warm Neutral palette. The Naked3 palette was the first nude palette I bought when I first discovered my obsession with makeup (about 2 years ago).

I decided to purchase theBalm’s Nude’tude palette, and I must say that this palette is THE BOMB, a must have neutral palette in your collection! Plus, the slim packaging makes it a great travel palette that you can slip into your bag or carry-on baggage, and don’t worry about it getting ruined because it is one tough palette. I took it with me on a short day trip to Seattle, went in the washroom and took the palette out of my purse, then accidentally dropped it on the floor. Panic ensued, thinking that I cracked the colours, but when I opened it, it was still perfectly intact and pristine.

Now, for the palette’s first test-run. For this post, I used only the Nude’tude palette and I tried two different looks, but you can definitely create other looks with this palette.

nudetudeLook #1

nudetude2Look #2

Look #1: Went for a dark purple-light pink tone
Stand-offish all over the lid as base; Sexy on top crease, then Silly and Sleek on corners; and to add extra highlights, I used Sassy and Stand-offish again on the inner corner and middle of the eyelid.

Look #2: Went for a dark brown-to-gold tone
Snobby all over the lid as base; Sultry on top crease, then Seductive and Sophisticated on corners and Sleek to accentuate top outer crease corner; then re-added Snobby on the inner corner and middle of eyelid.

nudetudeFor both looks, I used my summer-proof (water- and tear-proof) eyeliners: Benefit’s Push-Up Liner with Physician’s Formula Eye Booster Liquid Liner in ultra black.

Palette verdict:

Nude Tude swatch

The Nude’tude eyeshadows are very pigmented, easy to blend, buttery, has micro-shimmer, frosted, and matte shades, and even includes a slim dual-ended liner/eyeshadow brush and a full mirror. I think that this palette is worth the purchase at only $36 (USD before tax), and since it is compared side-by-side with Urban Decay’s Naked palette (in colours, pigmentation and texture), if you’re not ready to spend more for an eyeshadow palette, I would say the Nude’tude is a great bargain for the same qualities as the Naked palette.
