Happy Thursday everyone (not so happy for me), I am doing a quick post today because I have a 1 pm meeting in Makati later (goodness no one told me about the meeting and I look like a disaster *sobs*).
Anyway, I bought a lash pad recently and I want to share my thoughts on eyelash curlers.
Eyelash curler is a great tool because it makes you look awake and the mascara can perform better on your lashes.
I had this curler since second year college. This is from Nichido around Php100+ if I remember correctly Php179 to be exact. I had around four curlers before I settle down with this one. Plastic curlers don’t work well with me as well as curlers with springs. I have one battery operated but triple A batteries are expensive. (stingy Sammy)
Throughout its life, the pad can no longer curl your lashes. What you gonna do? As for me I do not throw it right away instead I purchase lash pads.
I usually get my lash pads from the same brand where I bought my curler. It costs Php75 for three pads and it lasts 3 – 6 months.
I also purchased one before in Landmark Trinoma and the performance is better – the rubber is thicker. Unfortunately it’s no longer available. Maybe Saizen or Daiso has one, I will check.
It saves money (and mother nature) if we know how to take care of our tools.
I heard Shisheido curler is really good, I wonder what’s the difference.
How about you? Do you buy lash pads too or purchase a new curler? What kind of eyelash curler do you have?
Let me know below.
Pleasant morning to all!
I have another FOTD with tips this time on how to put eye shadow if you are just starting to learn eye makeup using one color family with four different shades.
I used this product.
This is from AVON I believe the quad has new look now and I got it last December. My dad is working in AVON for 25+ years and every December they receive a loot bag full of AVON goodies and all the makeups are mine. So basically that is the reason why I am “a little” addicted with makeup. (I will share the blessing by making a giveaway this Christmas, sounds good?)
Anyway enough introduction here’s the makeup I came up with.
I only used ELF tone correcting concealer for the entire face and SANSAN loose powder. I was surprised with the results.
Please refer to the photo of the quad above 1 – 4 from left to right for the procedure.
Very easy right? The secret of applying eye shadow is blending. We do not want to have bold streaks of color on how we have applied the eye shadow.
The lightest color is for highlight while the darkest is to create depth.
The medium shade is for the entire lid.
For starters, it’s safe to start with two colors first then gradually you can mix different colors – entire lids then crease.
This rule mostly apply for everyday and special occasions makeup ~ LID | CREASE | OUTER V | BROW BONE. We can go crazy when we do creative eye makeup we can break the rules to create a very marvelous look.
As for the color we don’t usually use green for everyday look but hey it’s nice right? very wearable. So maybe ditch your browns and peach for a while and wear green, support the environment stop cutting trees use green eye shadows.
By the way my Lipstick is from Avon also I forgot to jot down the name but it’s from the Simply Pretty line.
I hope my basic knowledge on putting my eye shadow somehow helped you.
