My Year End Of 2014 LookHi, fellas..
I know, I've been caput. Since the last post, everything went crazy in my mind, but came out blank when I want to write it up on blog or twitter.
Life's been so slow, yet so hectic. With my noodles business, and makeup jobs on the side, finally I've gain my will to write again.
People been crazy about matte lips in 2014. Velvetines, Color Riche Matte, Soft Matte Lip Cream, Rouge Unlimited Matte, Rouge Velvet, and many more matte lip colors.
As for face makeup, I like it glowy, dewy, and not dead matte. My kind of matte face is the satin finish, when going to velvet or powdery finish, my face look so old with the enhanced fine lines, and dry patches.
This post is a collaboration makeup between me, Iva Asih (@iva_asih), and Mukti Lim (@muktilimmakeup).
My Simple, and Fresh Look will come up first! Will update you with their post later before this 2014 ends. *wink*
I will try to guide you to achieve makeup like on the picture above..
|Prime, and Foundation|
First, prep the skin. I cleansed using Bioderma Sensibio H2O, then hydrate using my L'Occitane Angelica Hydration Gel.
Then prime the skin using 3CE Pore Silky Balm. This is amazing, it fills my pore, and make the foundation/BBcream glides easily on top. Elongated the foundation wearing as well.
To get that extra glowy look, I used the Shu Uemura lightbulb liquid foundation in number 564. It can gets very oily on my skin, so I always blot before set it with powder. Quite convenient to use on daily basis, or for party. As it looks good on picture, if you love the extra dewy/glowy look.
And for my blemishes, MAC Prolong Wear Concealer in NC35. WHAT?! People were like, I should've in NC20-25 range of color. But no, NC35 is my current skintone now. Sometimes I can get onto NC45 if I got tan.. And my love toward this concealer is indescribable. My hate on this one is the pump, I always ALWAYS get it out more than I needed.
To enhance the glow even more(I KNOW! I'M OBSESSED!), E.L.F Essential All Over Color Stick in Persimmon on the high points of face that I applied my 3CE concealer. Just dab it using my concealer brush, keep patting to avoid brush streaks.
Lastly on prepping, the eyes. I used the Etude House Proof 10 eye primer. This primer is good for daily use. Always start with small amount on eye primer, too much could cause creasing/caking. Close the eyes, or look down to the mirror while applying. Do not open eyes until the primer set(this one is a tad watery).
Before moving into the eyes, and face makeup, I wanna show a great multifunction palette for light-medium skintone. Sleek Makeup Face Form in Light.
|Eye base color|
Using flat eyeshadow brush, highlight the inner corner of the eyes, and the browbone. And using a big fluffy dome brush, buff the contour shade on the crease area.
|Eyeliner, and Mascara|
Line, and flick the eyes using pencil eyeliner for the most neutral finish. Maybelline Colorshow eyeliner in Noble Purple.
After curling the eyelashes, lick some mascara on(because I intend to put faux lashes afterward, my real lashes have to support the weight of it). Dior travel mascara.
To match my eyebrows to my hair color, Dollywink eyebrow pencil, and browcara number 02 were doing a great job!
Using the Sleek Face Form light palette, I start to contour my face. Just a little bit, not too strong. I showed you where to put my contour, and just blend upward by circular motion.
Dab on the blusher to the upper cheek. I love to lift my cheekbones by applying my blusher on high. Try not to smile while applying blusher.
Hightlight, again! HAHA
Lightly dust some highlight powder on the C-area, cupid bows, short chin, and nose bridge. Not too much!
I fell into the matte lips trend.
Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Matte in Candy Pink. Love this bright warm pink. Not too loud.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Istanbul. Hate the formula on my lips, love the color. It makes my lips fuller without adding any gloss.
For more OOMPH!, dust some highlight powder on the center of the lower lips using eyeshadow brush.
I hope you find this post helpful to guide you put on your best face on your year end events, or any other events.
I wish you Merry Christmas 2014, and Happy New Year 2015!
