It’s been awhile since I have made a makeup vlog. I have posted here a video of my first ever MakeUp vlog. This is not a complete tutorial. I just wanted to show everyone how I did my makeup for an event that I have to attend that night. Then I just realized. It is so hard to be a makeup artist. Kudos to all makeup artist out there. I know they spend tons of money, time and effort. Honestly, I think being a makeup artist is a luxurious profession. Even if you are not a professional makeup artist, it takes tons of money. Prices of high quality makeups and makeup brushes is no joke. So here’s A Tribute To My First MakeUp Vlog.
My First MakeUp Vlog
But I’m not here to blog about how difficult it is to be a makeup artist or how expensive its is to purchase makeup. I just simply wanted to share hwo I did my makeup. It;s something I enjoy doing. I like doing my makeup in all occasions. Even if I’m just going to work. I rarely go out without makeup. So on this short makeup vlog I wanted to show how I did my makeup. (watch it on youtube here)
I have listed on this vlog what I’ve used from my moisturizer to the makeup: foundation, eye shadow, lipstick and etc.
♥ Pond’s Age Miracle Night Cream
♥ Maybelline concealer stick
♥ ELF 2-way Face Powder Foundation
♥ LA Girl Nude Palette
♥ BYS Matte Eye Shadow Palette
♥ Maybelline Hypercurl Volum Express Mascara
♥ Victoria’s Secret Shell Pink eye shadow
♥ Fashion 21 Brown Eye liner
♥ Jordana Matte Lipstick in Dark Red
Prepping my face
First started of with a clean face. I even rubbed ice cube all over my face as they say it kind of helps tightening the pores. Moisturized my face and neck with Pond’s Age Miracle Night Cream. I like its consistency and how it feels on my face. Then I started applying strokes of Maybelline concealer stick on my nose, under my eyes, forehead, and cheeks. I just blended it with my bare hands. Nothing really special. Then set it with ELF 2-way Face Powder Foundation. I like using a soft kabuki brush when applying powder onto my face.
Enhancing the eyes
I’m not using any primer on my eye lids. Just the concealer and powder will do. I love using my LA Girl Nude Palette. It’s cheap for a good quality makeup (eye shadow) palette and it doesn’t smudge easily. I used a nude pink shade on my eye lids and used a light glittery pink on the middle of the eye lids. Followed by using BYS Matte Eye Shadow Palette. I wet the tip of my small-flat eye shadow brush before dabbing it into the black eye shadow. I used it to line my eyes. On this vlog I did not line the bottom lash line. Then applied Maybelline Hypercurl Volum Express Mascara. I like brushing and curling my eye lashes a lot since I don’t have a naturally long and curly lashes.
Also, I like applying mascara on the bottom lash line to give it more definition and open up the eyes. I put a little Victoria’s Secret Shell Pink eye shadow in the inner corner of my eyes too. Some makeup artist swears it gives you a look that you had enough sleep by highlighting the inner corner of your eyes.
For the eye brows I am using a local brand called Fashion 21. I usually apply eye shadow for my eye brows but if I wanted a more defined look, I opt to using a brown eye liner instead to have that defined and a bit of waxy effect.
Because contour is life. Hate that I wasn’t able to include that on the video. I remember that I ran out of memory on my iPhone while filming this and I am in a hurry for my event. I used the brown shades from my LA Girl Nude Palette to contour my nose and slightly on the cheeks. As you can see, I did not use any blush on this video. I preferably do that if my eyes and lips are too defined.
Lastly the lipstick
On this vlog it did not show how I applied my lipstick. I did not use a lip liner. What I did is i just tracked my lips with the tip of the Jordana Dark Red lipstick before I apply it all over. I love how matte this lipstick is and it smells like doughnut. I always apply lipstick last. Just in case I wanted to eat while doing my make up and if I need to brush my teeth.
Here’s the finished look
