Kuripot mode? Not bad, not bad.
Here is me without any product:
Although I have other blemishes, the only ones I shall conceal are the ones on my nose and chin as these are the most visible.
Step 1: I apply liquid foundation (1) just to even out my skin tone, then I apply concealer (2) onto the two spots I mentioned.
Since this is for everyday, you don’t really have to conceal all your blemishes. What you really need to do is just even out the redness etc. Don’t pile on the concealer either because the blemishes will stick out more. IMO, if camera doesn’t see it, you don’t have to conceal it. HAHAHA. Don’t worry about blemishes, they fade in time!
- The reason I use San-San is because the liquid foundation doesn’t dry up flaky or patchy and the products mentioned have yellow undertones that even out redness! :)
Step 2: Fill in your brows and line your eyes with the eyebrow pencil (3). Using a regular eyeshadow brush or cotton bud, smudge the line across the lid and under the eye to define it. The line can be seen on the left, while the smudged effect can be seen on the right.
- I absolutely love Angelique! It’s so pigmented, but it isn’t blotchy, so its really easy to blend. Downer is that I only see it in HBC, and usually, I have to look for it myself because the some salesladies don’t even know they have it. :))
Step 3: Apply mascara (4).
- Well, for the price (Php88), the mascara I found isn’t bad! If you’re looking for cheap mascara that lengthens, this is it. It isn’t waterproof though, and I can’t assure mascara-sensitive people with the brand or ingredients because it’s in Japanese. :))
Step 5: Apply the lip & cheek tint onto..well, your lips and cheeks. ;) :))
The great thing about using a liquid base is that these kinds of tints can be easily blended!:)
- I love this product ah. Thank you, Abbie G. <3 I have this in 3 colors: nude, pink and red. Since they’re creamy/glossy, they’re easy to blend, and are less likely to end up concentrated. Downer is that they could become a bit streaky if you have really oily skin.
Step 6 (optional): If you have oily skin, like me, brush over a layer of powder foundation (6) to keep the tint in place! :)
- For affordable, yellowish-undertone foundation, I use Fashion21. They’re actually pretty nifty for oily skin. I also like San-San, but their shades are pretty light.
AAAAAAAAAND there you have it! Compare:
Remember that make-up can only cover so much, so don’t pile it on + The people who matter won’t be too critical on your looks, so don’t be too hard on yourself, okay?
I hope that helped you out <3 Til next time! MMMWAAAHHH :* <3
