Attempted Look: Going Parisian; A Parisian-Inspired Makeup Look

And I am back again with another makeup look that I wanted to share. Just like I said on my previous post, my schedule at work has become a lot more flexible and thus I'm able to   come up with some content to post on this blog of mine. This look was inspired by those articles in Vogue that I read about Parisian style. Black liner and a bold red lip is the look of choice and a little bit of strobing to get a little glow on. 

Products used: 

Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control - #23 Sand
Aritaum Full Cover Stick Concealer - #1 Light Beige
Etude House Big Cover Cushion Concealer - Illuminate
Aritaum Matte Formula Auto Brow Pencil - #5 Dark Brown
Aritaum Idol Brow Mascara - #2 Natural Brown
Etude House Look at My Eyes Cafe - BE102 Honey Milk 
Innisfree Gel Pencil Liner - #9
Innisfree Power Proof Brush Liner - #2 Light Brown 
Espoir Lip Stain Oil Tint - Paris
Innisfree Vivid Tint Rouge - #4 Red
Aritaum Honey Melting Tint - #5 Apple Red

How I Did It: 

  1. I did my base as usual and concealed some areas that needed concealing. I used my holy grail cushion, the Laneige BB Cushion pore control. I concealed my acne scars and dark circles using the Aritaum Full Cover Stick Concealer as well. 
  2. Time to strobe! I used my Etude House Big Cover Cushion Concealer for this one. The sponge on mine actually fell apart but I couldn't bear to throw it out when I haven't gotten a lot of use out of it so I made use of it without the sponge. I dotted the high points of my face and blended! 
  3. I filled in my brows with a brow pencil and some brow mascara. I used the Aritaum Matte Formula Auto Brow Pencil and the Aritaum Idol Brow Mascara. This brow mascara in particular, I don't really like the wand because it's too big. I prefer the Holika Holika browcara because I have more control on the product. 
  4. Time for the eye makeup! There isn't much to do on the eyes because like I said, the focus is more on the eyeliner and the lips. As a base color, I applied the Etude House Look at My Eyes Cafe shadow in my skintone all over my lids. 
  5. Just like I said in my previous post, a trick I have when it comes to my eyeliner, especially this particular liner, the Innisfree Power Proof Brush Liner, is to line my eyes as thin as possible with a pencil liner of the same color. For this, I used my Innisfree Gel Pencil liner. Do this as thinly as possible, extending it in a little wing at the end. Make sure to line the lower outer third of your eyes as well. 
  6. For a pop of color, I used my Espoir Lip Stain Oil Tint for my cheeks. I find myself using this particular lip tint as a cheek tint lately, especially when I'm coming up with looks. Peach cheek colors are totally my thing. 
  7. Lastly, the main point of this whole makeup look: the lips. Parisians are more known for sporting a bold red lip with very minimal makeup elsewhere. I combined these two products; the Innisfree Vivid Tint Rouge and the Aritaum Honey Melting Tint to make an intense red.

Banila Co White Wedding Dream Cream Review

So, I have finally gotten my hands on Banila Co's most buzzed about whitening makeup cream. You can't imagine how excited I was when this came in the mail because I've been reading (and ahem, re-reading) all the good things about this cream when I ordered it. I got it off BeautyMNL (you can go ahead and check my masterlist on where to buy in my previous posts) for Php 1,345.00 but for those of us who live in the Metro Manila area, you can check out their store in Landmark-Trinoma or the 4th floor of Glorietta 4 in Makati. 

So, let us get started!! 

The White Wedding Dream Cream is a whitening, moisturizing, brightening, makeup cream that makes skin look radiant, like a bride's on her wedding day. Before anything else, knowing that the climate in the Philippines, or in Manila for that matter, is often hot and humid, so anything that just says 'glowy' or 'brightening' tends to look oily on the skin. The weather isn't good for us combi-skinned girls and …

Holika Holika Waterdrop Tinted Foundation First Impression/Review

So, honestly I don't know whether to consider this as a review or a first impressions because I literally just got this today. Haha. But anyway! It's been a while since I did a product first impressions/review and this time, it was something I've previously placed on a "what's new." 

It's the Holika Holika Water drop Tinted Foundation! Also, this now holds the distinction of being my first ever liquid foundation. 

I got this off BeautyMNL for Php895. For a foundation, it's actually reasonably priced. It costs a little less than the Etude House Double Lasting Foundation. Anyway, I got this in the shade #2 Warm Ivory. 

As it says on the box, the Waterdrop Tinted Foundation is a long lasting liquid foundation that provides a matte finish as the light texture adheres to the skin while moisturizing the skin with water droplets. 

Cosrx Make Me Lovely Cushion Review

So, I am back with another product review, and this time, it's for the Cosrx Make Me Lovely Cushion! I've mentioned this in a 'what's new' post before and I was so glad that BeautyMNL finally has this in stock since they're the site I go to for my Cosrx fix. 

I purchased this for Php 1,000 - fairly cheaper than most cushions that I know of, but a teeny bit more expensive compared to the Innisfree ones (from what I know of). So, let us begin! 

So, there's the box. It doesn't come with a refill, which is probably why it is a little cheaper. Hopefully Cosrx does think of putting out separate refills for this. It also comes in only one shade, so it goes without saying that it's the cushion form of the Make Me Lovely Cream.
