Makeup Blah (photo heavy)

Actually I’m a late bloomer in this area.. I started wearing makeup and getting interested with it when I was in college, junior-senior year I think. I wore makeup back then but not as complicated as what I usually do now.

Back in high school: My makeup kit was super small cos it fits my uniform pocket hahaha! I only have The Body Shop lip stain (the glass roller ball type), Clean & Clear blotting sheets, mirror and a Hair Doctor comb. I was going for the au naturale look. Chos! And the biggest mistake I did was I have super thin brows as it is and I over plucked them! IT WAS SO SAD AND UGLY! :(

That’s me and Katrisse during recess. And I can’t believe I’m posting old fugly photos -__-

In between.. Few weeks after my month long vacation in Boracay hence my super dark complexion. Di bagay!

In college: Same old, but I kinda learned how to fill in my brows and grew it out a bit.

Then my friend did my makeup and reshaped my brows..

After college.. I got addicted to watching makeup tutorials on YouTube! If I knew things i know now maybe there’s a big chance of not over plucking my brows then bahaha! But ye, have to live with it now.. thank goodness for makeup gurus!

So ye, that’s my story..

ps: here are some looks that I did after teaching myself how to put makeup lol

pss: first photo was the reason I fell in love with makeup, cos of Arvie, my fave MAC MUA (:

If you want me to recreate looks, just email me (dailytrixfix@gmail.com) or tweet me! Will try my best to do so (:

Valentine’s Day Makeup No. 3: Bronze (Olivia Wilde inspired)

Here’s my third V-day look! I tried to recreate Olivia Wilde’s makeup, of course we don’t have the same eye shape and I have no idea what products the makeup artist used on her so I made use of what I have. Guess you can consider this a “seductive” makeup look also lol (if only my hair was longer, damn miss my super long hair). But ye, hope y’all like it!

Valentine’s Day Makeup No. 2: Red Lips

Not much of a whole face look cos I was rushing home from work last night and needed to go to 4 different events and to look a bit done so I just tossed in some Andrea 120 Demi lashes, MAC Ruby Woo lipstick and light dusting of Benefit Hoola bronzer. Of course, I did line my eyes a bit to get that full lash effect and my brows!

Don’t you just love B&W? I DO. lol

I will try to post a couple more looks before V-day so wait up for those! (:

Xin Nian Kuai Le!

I was quite bored so I decided to make a Chinese New Year inspired look (chos). And yes, I am part Chinese but I don’t speak/understand the language hihi. So ye, I used a bright red eyeshadow and smoked it a bit with a navy-purple color. Hope you like this simple look, it’s pretty wearable too. Ya? lol
