Texture Tuesday: Matte Face

11:45 Endi Feng 12 Comments

Hi, y'all..

I was asked by some fellas to talk about MATTE FACE makeup. Honestly, I don't really like matte face makeup. It emphasizes fine lines, and got the tendency to crack whenever I smile.

But let's do this.. Since I very seldom do a matte face, so I may be not very accurate on the longevity of the makeup on the face.

SOURCE: www.google.com

My current fave products to help me achieve matte face:

  • 3CE Pore Silky Balm. this primer looks creamy, the texture is like smooth cream powder. Really filling the pores, and prime the face before foundation.
  • Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation for oily/combination skin. My shade is True Beige. I am in love with this foundation, high coverage, affordable, & very long lasting. However, this one contain SPF in it, and awfully flashback on flash photography.
  • Bobbi Brown tinted eye brightener. Putting this before concealer, cut down the hassle to cover up dark circles. Too much concealer can exaggerate fine line under the eyes.
  • Tony Moly girl concealer. This concealer dries into matte finish. I use it to highlight the center perimeter of my face.
  • Maybelline BB Silk cake powder. Lovely powder for touch ups, or to set daily BBcream routine.
  • L'Oreal Mat Magique compact powder. Love on the first use for me. A cheap version of MAC Studio Fix compact. The bummer is the color range is limited, unlike MAC's.



Bisque color to cancel out dark circles





Eyebrows: ArtDeco brow powder.
Eyes: MakeUp Store eyeshadow, Kryolan gel liner.
Lips: Estee Lauder lip lacquer 'Electric Wine'.
Blush & Highlight: Sleek MakeUp face form 'Light'.
Rings: H&M.
Contouring powder: MBCP[contouring palette from my beauty school Puspita Martha].
Contact lens: Holycat in grey, got it from lensza.co.id(not sponsored).

All photos above are taken using my iPhone 6+ rear camera, no filter, no edit. *sigh* I need assistance or an assistant to edit my photos! LOL. 

Sorry about the earphones, I was doing this look while Jakarta was heavily raining, and the thunder rumbles like mad! I hate thunder. URGH..

A full face makeup minus the eye & lips, it lasts me a good 8 hours without any bothersome oily shine on my face. OLE SHIT, I know! Gonna do matte face more from now on, so my face can stay on fleek all day long..

See you on the next post guys. If you have any suggestions, or ideas on what to cover on Texture Tuesday next week, post a comment below. Or you can chat and interact with me on twitter, instagram, or facebook by clicking the social icons at the bottom.

Texture Tuesday: Glowing Skin

17:32 Endi Feng 7 Comments

Hi, y'all~
This week is about glowing skin.

In here, I will share about 3 kinds of glowing skin that I love on me, and my clients.


Korean glow is that oily slick kind of glow. It's almost look like you are sweating, or you're about ready to wash your face at the end of the day. LOL~ Definitely for very dry, and dehydrated skin. Commonly used in fashion photography for glossy complexion.

Just make sure you do your complexion well. 
I used Clinique Even Better foundation.
Then dab volumer gel on the V-area[bridge of nose, cupid bows, apples of the cheek, chin, and forehead] of the face. 
Volumer gel that I used on the photo above is Etude House Nymph Aura number 3.
Do not powder up. Set the makeup using setting spray.

Lips: Bobbi Brown Lip Color in 'Pale Pink'.


Dewy glow is the glow that I always love on every skin type. It can be slightly overwhelming on oily/combination skin though.

Used Shu Uemura Lightbulb liquid foundation number 554, and Maybelline Fit Me concealer in'Sand' under my eyes, chin, bridge of nose, & forehead.
For highlights, ELF Shimmering Facial Whip in 'Golden Peach'.
And MAC Mineralize SkinFinish Natural in 'Medium' to knock the shine off on the sides of nose, under eyes, forehead, & upper lips. Leaving the rest of the face without powder, so the foundation will give dewy glow throughout the day.
For extra glow, Sleek Makeup Face Form in 'Light' to highlight the C-area on the temples, chin, and nose bridge.

Lips: Maybelline Colorshow lipstick in 'True Toffee'.


Instagram glow is what we always see on Instagram app. Chiseled shadings on the cheeks, flawless complexion using light concealers, powdery shimmer highlights.

Beauty addicts are gone cray-cray about this kind of makeup. I am not really into this. HAHA. I find that shadings(or contouring) is a bit 'dirty'. Especially on a round face like me.

I used Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation in 'True Beige' for the base. LA Girl PRO Concealer in 'Creamy Beige' under the eyes, nose bridge, chin, forehead, and cupid bows.
I used 2 highlighting products. BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in 'Opal', and Wet N Wild Fergie Shimmer Palette in 'Rose Champagne Glow'.
For colors, Maybelline Dream Bouncy blusher in 'Peachy Satin', and Physician Formula Bronze Booster BBcream.

Lips: Shu Uemura MonShu lipstick in 'Celebrity Beige'.


This is my everyday glow type of face. Satin finish, with some highlighter powder on top.

Matte foundation, some concealer to hide dark circles and redness, highlighter powder, and setting spray.
Any setting spray that I've tried will give a sheen on top of every type of matte makeup.

I used my own mix airbrush makeup foundation. For the setting spray I used ELF Mist & Set.
On the eyes, & face, I used MAC Keepsakes Natural Face Palette. Love this palette very much.

On the lips is Juicy Lip Balm by The Soap Corner[Moporie].


That's it for this week's Texture Tuesday..
Will update more textures of makeup every week. If you have any suggestions of what type of textures to talk about, leave comment below. Or follow me on social medias to chat with me[click the social icons on the top right box that has my face on it].

Texture Tuesday: BOLD MATTE LIPS

23:17 Endi Feng 5 Comments

Hi, y'all..

So I have new segment called Texture Tuesday. Will update about textures for makeup every week on Tuesday. 

This photo is filtered, hence the perfect blurred skin.

People are mad for matte lippies now. At first, I hate matte lips. It exaggerates dry/chapped lips, and it's not sexy at all.
BUT, I know the secret to matte lips now. Luscious smooth lips. 

  1. Hydrate yourself by drinking water, 
  2. creamy lipbalm before sleep, 
  3. lipbalm every 3-4 hours/after meal, and 
  4. exfoliate your lips using sugar or baby toothbrush 2-3 times a week.

After get rid of that flaky skin from the lips, you are good for any kind of lipstick. And smooth lips to nib for kissing too. LOL

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte in Candy Pink.
For a soft pink matte lips, this one is quite bold. Brightens up light-medium skintone instantly. 

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte in Gangnam Pink[MPK 376]. This particular shade of lipstick did sold out in Asia Pacific once. So famous, I grab the last one in Seibu Grand Indonesia that time. This cool fuchsia pink is such a pretty color. I love to use this on photoshoots or clients for an evening look.

Since introduced to Shu Uemura lipstick, I've been in love. Their formula is so nice. The matte lipsticks although set into silky matte, they are not drying at all. They don't stick the upper & lower lips, last very long too. I hate the lipstick bullet, its round shape can't be resulting into neat application, gotta use lip brush.

L'Oreal Color Riche Moist Matte in Blaze of Red[R519].
I think this is a nice blue based red lipstick. Bold, but cool. Will look good on fair-light skin. I am light-medium skinned, it suits me less well. (Kelihatan judes sekali..)

L'Oreal Color Riche Moist Matte in Arabian Night[PM412].
This shade is popular among Female Daily Network family. I got it right away. LOL reddish, plum, chocolate, I say it is meant for cool skintone people. It will compliment pale-light skin nicely.

As for the lipstick, it's a hit & miss with me. Like its name, moist matte. The matte finish is still moist, so it's kinda have a sheen on top. Satin finish.
If you really want a matte lips, this is not for you. Great choice for daily wear, as it's not drying the lips, and reasonable price tag too. And the bullet is sharp & slanted, so lip brush is not necessary needed for a neat, outlined finish. 

Lime Crime Velvetine in Wicked.
This reddish brick brown is perfect on my lips. HAHA. I love this color to the bone! As for velvetines, they have great colors. I think I will get all of them. But because of the price(300-375k rupiahs/item!), maybe not. 

Lime Crime Velvetine in Red Velvet.
My first velvetine, and still loving it. This red is great for every skintone, I think. Everybody looks good with this one on instagram. It's crazy, the matte finish is a real deal.

The downside is, it's not smudgeproof. And it keep getting my upper & lower lips stick together, so my center part of the lips always fade away in couple of hours.
Another downside is THE SMELL! Oh My Goodness. Freshly opened, it smells yummy like candy. Now, after 7 months, it has that stale fume. Both Wicked & Red Velvet, they are the same now. Althought I get my Wicked last 5 months. Blegh~

Because it's a liquid lipstick, I never apply it directly on lips using the dove tip applicator. I always prolong the product's life by scoop it out on a palette, and use lip brush. Even my method cannot help this one to hold its shelf life(12M). *sigh*

OK, I have to include this one. 
NYX Soft Matte Lipcream in Istanbul.
I LOVE the smell of this lipcream. So sweet, yumm.. It has a satin matte finish because it's a cream. This cool pink looks really good on pale skin.

The downsides are, it slides, and really exaggerate lip lines. I thought layer it up will help. IT DOES NOT! HAHA.
Not opaque enough as a matte lipstick, for me. But the cheap price tag, and a wide range of shade to choose, it's a nice choice to splurge on if you are a lippies junkie. 


That's it. I hope you enjoy my Texture Tuesday segment. Will update about this every week. 
If you have any idea for makeup texture, and want me to talk about them, lemme know.
