Everyday Quick Face Routine

Not everyone is born with nice skin and cannot not wear makeup everyday, even if you’re lazy like me, you still have a simple routine to make your skin look flawless, right?

My routine changes from time to time, but for the moment this is what I do especially that my skin broke out like crazy and I’m trying to cover blemishes, thank God for Skin101, my skin is slowly getting better. But ye, I definitely do not go through a complicated routine cos I’m always on the go. This routine suits our weather too, might be raining from time to time but it’s mostly hot and humid here in the Philippines and I like to do something that I can literally do in a few minutes!

So daily, I opt for this routine that requires basically no complicated skills of any sort. And the best bonus of all is that it looks natural and covers just as well as liquid foundation!

ps: this ain’t easy! Kudos to YouTube makeup gurus! (and the like)

Catwalk Cosmetics

Almost forgot I had this hehe :P Got this like last week I think (I forgot) and I’m super excited to play with it! Catwalk Cosmetics is owned by fashion and beauty blogger, Marj Sia. I don’t really need another palette like this since I have a couple from Coastal Scents, but ye I gave in anyways.
The palette has 15 eyeshadows that you can use for day & night looks and 3 blushes:
Smokey (Pearl White, Disco Silver, Black Noir)
Neutral (Copper, Juicy Orange, Hello Yellow, Cocoa Brown)
Cool (Lime Green, Green Tea, Powder Blue, Royal Blue, Teal)
Warm (Geisha Red, Lollipop Pink, Purple Lotus)
3 Blush Shades: Salmon, Tangerine, Rose
I got the Runway Palette with a special promo price of P600 (+50 shipping) but it’s fairly cheap for P1,100 too and you get huge pans! They’re pretty pigmented as well! Few colors are a bit chalky tho and you will get fall outs but that’s fine; you can deal with it later. I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance eyeshadow primer for the swatches below so the color would really pop out and did like 2-3 swipes, pretty decent I’d say.
Makeup tip: Always test eyeshadows before buying them. The color and pigment should both be strong – even on neutral colors. Without these two components you will forever be trying to build up color and intensity and that means using up your eyeshadow way too fast – and no one wants that!

For Orders, call or text Marj Sia (+63917-8929289).

Don’t forget to exfoliate, prime, and line your lips. And if you will be donning a set of bright lips or eyes keep the rest of your makeup minimal and dress your lashes in only a light coat of mascara; but if you want that extra oomph go ahead and add an extra layer of mascara or even throw a pair of demi falsies! Rock this look by showing off some killer confidence, don’t let it wear you. Have a purrrrfect pout everyone!

Spring Cleaning

(photo made via Polyvore)

It’s the perfect time of the year again to clean, overhaul and organize everything that you use to make you beautiful!

Here’s what to do:

  1. Gather all your makeup and bag/kit, laying them on paper towels or just at any clean surface.
  2. Take all your makeup brushes and give them a bath!
  3. Wash or sanitize your bag/kit and products.
  4. Toss out what you don’t use!
