Dramatic liner makeup tutorial! <3 [Photo Heavy]

Hello hello!!! How are we all?! I put on my purple contacts today and I was a bit frustrated as to what makeup and what interesting look I can wear with it since purple doesn’t go with every colour… Something like that. This look turned out okay and it was a bit impromptu so I hope you guys will still enjoy and like it ^~^!

Let’s Go!

Brushes used:

Image

Face Products: Tony Moly Shimmer Cubes in Brown and Pink Holic, Holika Holika Aqua Jelly BB cream, Palgantong Makeup powder in original beige, Mac blush in supernova, Etude House Shading Corset in #5, Maybelline lipstick in 303, TooFaced shadow insurance, Clio diamond rose HD base.

STEPS!!!

Image

 

1. Apply base, BB cream and powder. You can add concealer to conceal any blemishes if need be 🙂

2. Apply the eye primer all over the lid and around the eyes as demonstrated by the guide lines.

3. Pick up the light purple with a flat shading brush.

 Image

 

4. Pop the light purple all over the lid.

5. Take the darker purple and pat this into the smaller area as shown in the guides.

5. Then get some dark purple with a fluffy blendy brush.

 Image

 

6. Pat this into your outer V and slowly blend outwards as shown above.

7. Use as smaller rounded tip shading brush and pick up the blue-ish colour.

8. Sweep it across the undereye.

9. Using the same brush, pick up the darker blue.

 Image

 10. Blend the colour into the outer 1/3 of the bottom lashline and bring the colour up to the upper outer 1/3 of the eye.

11. Pick up some more of the light purple and use it as a highlighter to your browbone 😀

 Image

 12. Use a bullet head brush and pick up the shimmery white to highlight the inner corners of your eyes.

13. Take a pushliner to pick up a matte black to line your upper waterline.

 Image

 

14. Using a creamy eyeliner, line your waterline. Don’t line out!

15. Now take a clean angled liner brush and drag out some of the cream liner to create a guide for your massive wing.

 Image

 16. Take a white pencil liner and mark out the bottom liner design : )

17. Line your lower waterline while you’ve got the pencil in your hand haha.

18. Finalise the eyeliner with a liquid liner. Line your top eyes and the lower lashline design. The lower part might be a bit tricky so have a Q-tip/ cotton bud ready at hand in case you make a mistake!

 Image

19. Take a brow brush or brow pencil or whatever you’ve got and fill in your brows!

20. Curl your lashes~

 Image

21. Apply mascara.

22. I took the bottom 3 shades of the Brown shimmer cube and used this to contour like shown.

Image 

23. Apply your favourite blush! [Tip: for asians, using a rose coloured blusher looks really good with our skintone. It may look dark at first but it really won’t come out like as so! I used to be scared to use such a deep colour but using even just a small amount really makes a big difference. Much more than a baby pink ~~]

24. I highlighted my T-zone, C-zone and nose with the lightest colours on the Pink Holic shimmer cube.

25. And contoured my nose as shown on the photograph.

 Image

 

26. Put on your fav falsies and wig (if you need to)

27. And finish off with a light pink lipstick! ❤

Image

Finito!

Heres the look in final res. I did play around with the colors slightly on photoshop so the purple.. doesn’t really look purple, but I suppose the look could go with other colours too 😀

 Image

Hope you had fun reading/ doing this look :D!

Yohio’s (Jrock) Makeup Tutorial! [Photo Heavy]

Hi everyone! I’m back with a makeup look similar to that of Yohio’s. He’s a young and beautiful swedish singer who’s music is heavily influenced by Japanese culture. ❤ I’m not even kidding about how beautiful he is! Here’s a pic:

Image

His style might not be very conventional but he’s really quite an interesting person. I really liked his makeup (not the one in the photo but another will be shown in below) so i decided to copy it ish.

Image

Looks fun? Let’s go!!

Products used~

 Image

These are the brushes I’ve used. Now you don’t have to have the exact same ones, just anything similar in size or diameter will do : )! The tutorial below will show you when I use them. xx (I forgot to add the spoolie ><)

Image

Face Products: Gorgeous Base Perfect Liquid Foundation, Hera CC Cream in 01, Gorgeous Camouflage cover cream (concealer), Etude House Tight Shading Corset in #5, Tony Moly Shimmer Lover Cube in Brown and Pink Holic. Ahhh >< I forgot to add in my Smashbox face primer and Escada pink lipstick… sigh forgive me…

 Image

 Eye Shadows: Gorgeous Essential Shades Palette, Maybelline Eye Color Pallet in BU-1, Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow in Black Magic

Image 

Other Eye Products: Glameyes advant-garde crystal face jewels, Lancome mascara in Hypnose, DUO eyelash adhesive, Brow Specialist eyebrow mascara, Dollywink liquid liner, Shu Uemura eyebrow pencil in Hard 09, Stila smudgestick waterproof eyeliner in Stingray, MAC lash curler. I also forget to put my TooFaced Shadow Insurance eye primer and gluestick in ><

 STEPS!

Image

1. Apply your moisturiser and what not.

2. Use a spoolie and groom your brows in shape, following the directional lines in the pic on the bottom left.

3. Get some glue onto your fingers and secure the brows in place. We want to create those pointy brows xD.

Image

 

4. After the brows dry, apply the concealer over it. Most people who do this look would already have shaved brows. However you can probably tell, I have really thick and dark brows and I don’t want to shave them off so there is still brow visibility. Hence, I fixed the rest up in photoshop. But concealing the brows will already lessen a lot of the dark brow colour.

5. Get your primer and prime your face.

6. I wanted more coverage than usual and a slightly radiant look so I mixed together my CC cream and foundation.

7. And I applied this on my face with a beauty sponge.

Image

8. Spread the foundation following the directional guide in the photo above.

9. Now take the eyeshadow primer and apply this all over the lids, including the undereye area.

10. Take the pearly silverish white cream shadow from the Revlon palette and with your ring finger, apply this all over the first 3/4 of the lid (marked out areas)

Image

11. Now take the Maybelline palette and a flat medium sized shader brush. Dip it into the shimmery white and apply this over the area where you have just applied the cream shadow.

12. Take the bullet head brush and apply the same colour to your tearducts and first half of the bottom lashline.

Image

13. Take the fluffy blending brush and buff the matte black in circular and patting motions into your outer corner until you are satisfied with the amount.

Image

 

14. Then taking a thin blending brush, use window sweeping motions to bring the black into your crease.

15. Using the same brush and matte black, bring the colour down and connect it with the white.

Image

 

16. Now repeat the blending steps with the matte black with the shimmery black.

17. Take the black liner and line your eyes.

Image

 

18. Alright, time to take out a flat shaped liner brush called a pushliner. Dip this into your black eyeshadow and push it into your upper lashline. This will make your lashes look heaps fuller and really makes a difference!!!

19. Now get the liquid liner and sharpen your lines.

Image

 

20. Looking good. Now take the brow pencil and line out how you want the brows.

21. Fill in the brows with brow powder. And if it isn’t dark or strong enough, you can always use brow mascara as I did.

Image

 

Whoot… Look at them weirdo brows!!! LOL. As I said mine are really hard to cover since they’re dark and thick and I don’t want to shave them off…

22. No worries. Go back to the Maybelline palette and grab the white again. Use this to highlight your browbone.

23. Take the bottom 3 colours in the Tony Moly Brown as a contour.

Image

 

24. Contour like so with the guides. Also, contour the jawline if need be.

25. Take the Tony Moly pink holic and use the bottom three as the blush and the top two colours as the highlight.

26. Highlight your T-zone, C-zone, chin and cupid’s bow.

Image

 

27. Take the shading corset and a small fluffy blending brush to use as nose contouring. If you’ve got an asian piggy nose like me, contour according to my guidelines above. What you want to do is not only contour the bridge of your nose but also bring that into the areas right under your brows and bring it half way under your brows. This will make you look like you’ve got slightly deeper set eyes and make your nose appear longer. Finally the sides of your nose. This you will have to experiment because every nose shape is different. However doing this will cast a shadow beside the nose “flaps”(?! LOL) and make it look thinner.

28. Phew.. curl those lashes…curl them >: [

Image

 

29. And coat them in mascara. 

30. Take out some scary(nah they beautiful LOL) lashes and apply them on.

31. And the key to the look! The face jewels! Apply these on with a tweezer.

Image

 

32. Almost done! Apply baby pink lipstick to the centre of your lips.

33. Gloss the lips up with a bit of pink lipgloss.

34. And put on a wig!!!

Thanks for staying with me for so long!

The long awaited Hera CC Cream FULL review!

What on earth is CC cream?!? Well it stands for complete care cream or colour control cream. It’s supposedly the improved version of BB cream… beauty blemish or beauty balm cream. Let me explain with why there’s two names. From what i’ve been snooping around on the internet i’ve noticed two different types of cc cream. There’s not an entire chunk of difference between the both except its form. The one i’m going to show and review on is the complete care cream. This one is the one with colour coverage as well as other skin benefits- such as spf protection from uv and ub rays and some sort of skin tone correction. The other one, colour correction cream, appears as a white cream that after application transforms accordingly to your skin colour. It’s more translucent than the latter so the coverage is lighter but supposedly even out your skin tones more. There are a couple out there but Rae Morris raves on about the Loreal one…which she’s been using like no tomorrow on the latest Loreal paris fashion walk… 

So followed by Chanel’s attempt at cc cream, I’ve heard reviews saying that it enhances oiliness and dryness being that its acclaimed to be an oil free product. – perhaps wasn’t so popular for a lot of people with skin problems- especially those of combination skin. I unfortunately happen to be one of them so didn’t even bother trying. I went straight to trying the Hera one because I was looking for a BB cream alternative because my BB cream just doesn’t last all day… and I don’t like having foundation on my skin for 12 hours straight. It just feels so heavy!!!! Urgh and its gross and you feel gross at the end of the day!!!

Image

The Hera CC cream is also known as the “photoshop cream” as it claims to give you a flawless, airbrushy finish to your face after application. (As does any other product… LOL) It also claims to stick tightly to your face, doesn’t leave an oily finish, moisturises, makes your skin appear bit more bouncy and youthful (elasticity), covers flaws naturally, evens out uneven skintone and spf35+ protection. Sounds too good to be true yeah!? Yeah…

Picking the right shade:

The Hera CC cream comes in two shades- the 01 (The one I bought) and the 02. The 01 is slightly pinker, and slightly fairer in tone while the 02 is a little bit more yellow. I have some slighter pink patches over my face so hence i’m using the 01. And if you’re a little darker than fair and have a warmer yellow tone to your face then perhaps the 02 is better for you~

Lasting and oiliness results:

Anyway I put it to the test over a period of time to see what would happen. I’ve used it in photoshoots, my own face, model’s faces, applied it with mixing it with other products! Overall I quite like it and I think i’ll be repurchasing it. I usually like applying the product on with a beauty sponge. And yes, I think the product covers my pores quite well without clogging them up. It does actually make me look like i’ve got flawless skin- minus the few bumps or scars that i’ve already got- so those i had to go and cover with concealer.

I was using the skin79 Super Blemish Balm from the VIP Gold Collection prior and my skin was breaking out. It didn’t use to do this but perhaps it’s because my face is quite the combination skin and quite reactive to seasonal and lifestyle changes it just needed something- better. When I first used the CC cream what I noticed that it was the tiniest thicker in consistency than the BB cream. It wasn’t as oily or shiny- which is what I liked because I have the oiliest T-zone EVER EVER! The CC cream definitely lasted longer than the BB cream although I still couldn’t escape applying a little bit of powder to make sure it would set for the day. It lasted about…. 6-8 hours or so in moderate 23-25 degree heat outdoors and it didn’t slip around my face much. Something like that. Whereas any of my bb creams would start showing signs of wearing off after about 3 hrs…sigh

Colour Correcting results:

Seeing that i’ve been using it over some time I think my face has actually cleared up a bit more and the tonality across my face has indeed gotten better. Whereas during the time I was using BB cream… my face still had its on n off weeks. It’s been more consistent now. My pinky patches on the sides of my face have evened out a little bit. So i guess that’s a good thing~ And mind you, I have a pretty terrible sleeping and eating patterns.

How it looks on skin and experimentation:

Another thing I liked about the CC cream is the fact that after application if leaves your skin looking hydrated and ‘glowier’ but not oilier :D!!! My T-zone still oils up after about 5 hours but definitely lasted much longer than the BB cream. So I’m not complaining.

Now for experimentation. I’ve been mixing this product with my Gorgeous foundation for photoshoots with models lately and the photographer I’m usually working with is totally impressed with the slight glow and radiance it’s have on the model’s face. Using this combo means i’m using less foundation so i’m getting a fresher and more natural look on the models. (Which is totally the in thing right now. As you would notice on runways models are really hitting it up with the fresh dewy face kinda look) When I used to use straight foundation, without photoshop the models looked evidently more tired and the application of makeup was absolutely more obvious.

I’ve also tried mixing it with my It’s Skin VC correcting serum. I think this is probably my favourite combo. Using the serum means i’m using even less CC cream= less makeup! YAY! Its hard for a girl to really go from using a whole stack of makeup to using a bare minimum. I’ve been trying to use less makeup nowadays for when I go out casually so I can keep my skin youthful and I guess this has been my most effective combo yet. The serum helps brighten up my skin a lot and keeps it moisturised without it being oily and the CC cream covers up any blemishes ever so slightly so I still look true to my own skin but not too tired and not too fake. 🙂 *claps*

Finally, I’ve also mixed this stuff with both the VC Serum and the Holika Holika aqua petit Jelly BB cream. I don’t know why I did this, but it’s a pretty good combo too. My face feels super hydrated, and I have a really dewy looking skin. So if that’s what you’re going for for that day, go for it. Wouldn’t recommend it for a hot summer’s day though because you might end up looking a bit too glossed up for it LOL!

Below are some before and after application swatches of the 01 shade on my ugly rough hands:

Final remarks:

So I really do like this product and as I said I’m thinking or repurchasing it. The result looks really natural. The Hera CC cream smelt pretty good and reminded me of the Christian Dior foundation range- not too strong but a very nice clean and fresh smell. It’s not full coverage but its enough to leave you happy about it because it brightens up your skin tone and doesn’t feel cakey or leave you looking fake. I like how it makes your face glow slightly without it being oily and I really don’t complain about its lifetime on the face. The only thing i’m not too fond of is its price. It’s just.. SO PRICEY!!! T_T!!! I Also wish it came in more shades but perhaps that would be for further down the track in time!!!
I bought this from Koreadepart for about $44 AUD

Well that’s it! Hope you enjoyed it!

Sashimi colours inspired makeup attempt!!!

Hi everyone! How’re you all!? I’ve been craving for sushi and sashimi for the past few days. If I couldn’t get any in my mouth then i’ll put some on my face >:[ ok okay that was lame LOL. Sat down and went ahead and started applying stuff on my face. Oranges, rusty reds, golds, some green…pinks…. mhmm. Fish >:D LOL

Ended up with this:

Image

 

And now suppose the usual~Image

1. Start off with foundation, concealers etc. Prime your eyes.

2. I take ‘Monkey’ a rust brown from my gorgeous palette and pat it over my lids as a base colour to make my orangey rust colours really pop with a warmer red undertone.

3. Then I mix some rusty oranges from my coastal scents palette and ben nye, spreading this over the inner 3/4 of my lids.

4. Taking some slightly shimmery rusty maroons I apply this to the outer V area. Reminds me of tuna. hahaha I eat salmon…and then eats tuna.. 😐 …

Image

5. Taking a goldy yellow, I blend it into the top crease and semi into the brow bone.

6. Then dip a bullet brush into a bright yummy pink and line the outer half of your lower lash line.

7. After that, that a salmon pink and blend it into the outer edges of the bright pink and slowly bring it into your tearducts, blending out any harsh lines.

8. (At this step you’re supposed to add some shimmery white to your inner corners but i did that last ><) Line your eyes with a green eyeshadow followed by a green liner~

Image

9. This next part is optional, but I extended the rusty reds and orange shadows to fade outwards from my lower lashline.

10. Line your lower waterline with a nude liner.

11. Apply a deep red to your cheeks and bring it up higher than you usually do for a more dramatic and vintage look~

12. Finish off with flasies, filling your brows and i topped the look with an orangey lipstick ❤

Image

Okayyy now for the stuff I used~ I’ve marked the colours I’ve used with a star :3

ImageCoastal scents warm palette. The two colours near the bottom were used in conjunction with the ben nye orange and the two rust colours at the top were used on the outer V.

ImageGorgeous Palette: The rusty red (monkey) was used as a base colour. The brown below it was used to fill my brows.

Ben Nye Lumiere Grande Colour Palette: The orange was mixed with the other coastal scents oranges and the gold yellow was used to blend out to my brow bones. Oops i forgot to star the bright pink here as well that was used for the lower lash line.

Image

Sigma in Grasp: This was used to blend out the bright pink.

Lancome in Ombre Absolute impact 3D palette in A80 Baby Pop: the white is used for the inner corners of my eyes and the green at the bottom to line my eyes~
