  1. Besame’s Lipstick in 1959 Red Hot Red
  2. Besame’s Black Cake Mascara
  3. Chanel Comfort Radiance Compact Makeup
  4. Max Factor’s Facefinity All Day Flawless
  5. The Balm’s Down Boy Shadow Blush
  6. A pair of your favorite falsies

 

How did it all come down to this? Mascara, liner and brows are a big part of everyone’s makeup routine. There are just a crazy amount of options, but with this Black Cake Mascara it is all down to one. Yup, I use it for all!

How the Cake Mascara works:

 

  1. Brows: I like my brows full but soft. I don’t like the gel look, so I brush these thoroughly.

2. Face: I use Max Factor’s Facefinity. It’s also a 3 in 1 product (Primer, Concealer and Foundation) Less product, same results.  Just a brush of compact powder to set.

3. Eyeliner and Mascara: Here is the fun part! The Cake Mascara is so easy to use that my cat eyeliner was done in under a minute (for those who know the struggle this is a miracle). It’s so potent and the mascara is so light that when I later on apply my falsies they don’t weigh down.

4. Lashes! Just adding them on. I buy mine from Suesh  (Php 100 per pair!)

5.  Lips! Besame’s Red Hot Red is a replica from 1959. I am obsessed with the detail of their products….their tubes are so pretty!

6.  Blush Blush Blush: Again, obsessed with this product’s packaging. You may have seen the Balm’s cute pin-up designs. So this is obviously a perfect product for this look. I use my middle and ring finger to apply my blush to the apples of my cheeks. I like to use my fingers for this because it warms up the product making it smooth and natural.

Kat Von D ‘Shade + Light’ Eye Contour Pallet Review and Looks!

 

20160120_144323

 

Kat Von D forever!!! I’ve been a huge fan of her’s since those Miami Ink days…

She is one of my idols in creativity, style and ambition. Seriously LOVE her. So, when she came out with her now famous make-up line through Sephora I died. Then, learning that her products would be cruelty free it couldn’t get any better.

I finally got my hands on the eye contour pallet. As some of you know, I have a huge eye for eye contouring. Pun intended. Her pallet consists of three quads: neutral, cool, and warm. As much as I love the Urban Decay Naked pallets….this beats it by light years.  The galaxy should only carry this product. It’s absolutely pigmented, carries all the necessary neutral colors, and it’s all matte. Also, the packaging couldn’t resemble Kat any better.

Let’s be real, you end up buying an eye shadow pallet because when you see it all together you think “OOOOOHHH PRETTY COLORS.” But, what the heck, you end up only using the browns, whites and uhm…maybe the blue? We all know you will rarely dip your brush into that neon Easter pink everyday. (HEY! I praise you if you do that!)

I tried all the quads…as a quad. And I only did one technique for each quad to easily compare.

The Neutral Quad:

The Cool Quad:

All three looks consisted of MAC Pro Long Wear Foundation, Tony Moly eyebrow pencil, and Chanel Compact Radiance Compact Powder. Photos taken with Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

Final Thoughts:

The Warm Quad– It deserves to be worn everyday. I would do this look for work, or for something that requires you to wear the color white and cover your tattoos. I love it for being super subtle.  Lipstick is Persistence by MAC.

The Neutral Quad– This quad is what I would definitely use when creating the pinup look. The white and the dark browns are exactly what I need in creating a deep crease in my eyes. Lipstick is Russian Red by MAC. 

The Cool Quad– Use use use for a night out! It’s dark, its smoldering, and its screams “you bitch”. I want this for gigs, a drunk night out or just to bring a little darkness on a sunny day. Lipstick is Copenhagen by NYX.  

 

 

Which look do you like the best?
