Best Beauty tips there is!

Cheap beauty tips:

Eyes:
1.if you dont have any eye primers like UDPP or TFSI or u cant get your hands on Monistat,you can use foundation to your eyes,it helps the eyeshadow to stick longer and appear vibrant.
2.use petroleum jelly to remove eye makeups it can even remove waterproof mascaras,it works and its CHEAP
3.Liner your deep eyes with a brighter shade of eyeliner it will definitely emphasize your eyes.
4.For day time. eye shadow should match your eyes or be one shade lighter
5.After using a pencil eyeliner you can top it off with an eyeshadow of the same shade to seal it.

Face:
1.If you're looking for a quick, yet gorgeous makup look on the run, I suggest a multi-purpose blush stick. It's used as an eye shadow, blush and lipstick. It feels so smooth and natural and looks fantastic. I like to mix it with white eye shadow while applying to my eyes in order for my eyes to really pop
2.Always always always use a moisturizer with spf,even if you have an oily face like mine,coz your face tends to get oilier when its not moisturized.
3.for a natural glow instead of using powder blushes you can go for the liquid blush for a more natural flush look
4.Never leave makeup when you are about to sleep even if its organic or claimed that you can wear it at your sleep..its still make up it will clog pores and suffocates the skin.
5.dont wash your face after you wake up,you will only wash away your natural skin oils,might as well splash your face with a water but dont use soaps.

Lips:
1.if you have a very pigmented lipstick in your stash you can pale it out by using a concealer when applying it on your lips.
2.use lip liner to make your lipstick last longer
3.never skip lipbalms it does not only moisturized the lips but makes your lippie last longer as well.
4.you can exfoliate ur lips and remove those nasty excess skin by gently brushing your lips.
5.you can use baking soda to exfoliate your lips as well,cheap but it works.

This is just some of my beauty tips hope some of this helps

Product Review:Flatana Skin Renewing BB Cream

Monday, June 29, 2009
Its been 2 days now,since i first used the bb cream,i can now give an initial review.Since this is my first full size BB cream i did not went for the expensive ones,but of course i made sure that its not just any other bb cream.First i just want to inform you that the weather in my country is very hot..not like the sahara dessert hot,but its not that weather where make up agrees to stay put.People like me who sweats a lot,has an oily face,and makeup melts easily,really have a hard time searching for a good mattifiers and a makeup who can combat the oils on our face.so here goes:''

The box-the has says "Collagen Choc Extra" i did not understand what it meant but search the net and found something that is similar to what it meant.I found this on the net with this chocolate collagen facial mask product:

It has rich natural cocoa polyphenols and hydrolyzed protein, is able to compact skin and promote blood circulation as well as remove aging cells, making your skin to maintain flexibility and vitality, nourishing the dry skin, to remove any accumulation of dirt from hair follicles. And prevent aging and other many functions


the packaging it self.

now here is the language barrier part:anyone who can read this pls leave me a comment on what it says..=D

and this too.

so here is my bare face..no anything on the face.
the product is not as thick as the skinfood BB creams,so its easy to spread and i only need a pea size amount to cover the whole face



i dab it on my cheeks nose forehead chin before i spread it

this is the after face:see how my face and neck color differs upon application?but thats ok BB cream tends to blend to your skin color after a few minutes of putting it on.

face after putting neutrogena fine fairness face powder
on natural lighting..dont mind those tires i took a pic on the garage.see how bright it is..its really really hot outside,you will surely form a sweat even when sitting.

face after putting on my blush.as you can see i am on my way to school haha.but before that we went to my mom's house to pick up Lil R.

i sweated a lot but what captures my attention the most is its OIL CONTROL!!.this one is the best..well i only tried 2 bb creams as of now,the first one is a sample size of skinfood mushroom bb cream.and the flatana bb cream really stands out in terms of oil control,to think that i have been complaining on how oily my face is,and that no makeup in this world can keep my oil at bay.But i stand corrected.see how matte my face is even after 3 hours.compared to my other photos in which my face were really oily after 2 hours of makeup application.

and here is my face after 7 hours of putting the bb cream on...see!!theres still no sign of major OILINESS,Just a smooth natural glow!.I LOVE IT!!in my face is a mixture of sweat and oil haha. eventhough it rained and it made the air really uncomfortable,it still gives me this fresh matte but not dull look.No reapplication,no oil control sheets,just left it as it is.

compared to this photo..i look really oily.this is just 2 hours after i applied my make up on.see the difference?


BreakDown:

Pros:
Really good at controlling OIL!!(i promise!)
offers me medium coverage.(for me its a pro since i dont have much to cover can be a con to others,)
Really evens out my skin tone
gives me this flawless natural no make up look
very light
no smell
affordable @ 60 ml

Cons:
Medium coverage( A PRO FOR ME!)
Not locally available.they have a site its www.flatana.com

so that is it,for now it did not broke me out.but i will update if there will be any change.good day everyone

EDIT:august 13 2009:this bb cream was good at controlling my oilies at first...but now the oil control was not as good as it was the first time i used it.darn...

Product Review:Neutrogena Fine Fainess UV compact

Tuesday, June 23, 2009
hello ladies its pouring rain outside today,so instead of staring at the rain...while sighing at the same time,i thought that i should do something else.here is a review on my HG powder/foundation.
the box,this is just my backup.the one that i am using is almost on its way to being extinct...actually it is..ill show u later.


the packaging.its just a simple silver non glossy case.


the back..my shade is light beige#10.i really dont know how many shades they have,but everytime i buy this thing i can only see 2 shades that they shelf out.


when opened..it has this big mirror which i love,at first it is the only reason why i bought this one,i was torn between this and the maybelline angelfit,but since this one has a bigger mirror..neutrogena's mirror won me over.,it also have this sponge made out of latex i think,which u can wet if u want a thicker coverage or u can just apply it as it is..i havent try wetting the sponge coz i use this one for touch ups and school days+ days where i want a simple look only.


close up,the pressed powder has this covering,where u can flip sideways,it prevents the fall out of the powder from invading the mirror and making it blurry..clean wise.
product says:
This extraordinary powder formulation blends evenly with skin tone to hide imperfections for beautifully natural-looking coverage. Contains Vitamin C and Licorice Extract, plus sunscreens to help protect the skin against harmful UV rays and prevent the formation of sunspots. Immediately leaves your skin luminous and helps improve skin fairness every time you apply it. Hypo-allergenic. Fragrance-free. Non-comedogenic. Resistant to humidity, sweat and sebum (oil). Comes in Light Beige and Natural Beige shades


this is the product swiped at the back of my hands the upper part have the product the lower part bare skin(bad lighting)see the difference?i also swatched it on top of the blended product.
Now MY CLAIM:this product have been my HG powder since i was in highschool(senior year) so ive been using this for almost 4-5 years,and yes its good,i doesnt break me out,what i like about this is its non comodogenic,which means it wont clog my pores,it has spf 15 and vitc and licorice extract which slowly whitens and/or prevent dark spots formation.As i have said i am a very OILY person,and my face sweat a LOT.But even if i sweat a lot after a while i can still see that this one doesnt fade out totally on my face,it still gives me this non wasted look(FRESH!!),and evens out my face,but,yes it still fades for up to 3hours on me,but i cant blame the product coz its the only pressed powder that lasted that long on my face and gives me a nice finish.(YES EVEN MAC BLOT!cant stand the oily face of shobe),it doesnt cake on my skin,feels light as well,.It retails for 700php plus(14$ plus)

In almost all of my photos i am always oily right?,but still my face doesnt look tired and it still looks kinda fresh and somewhat bright.the picture below is a shot of me wearing the neutrogena after a few hours,i sweated a lot and you will definitely notice the oil on my face,but in this photo i already wiped it with a towel.i have this act in where i always wipe my face...i know its bad but...the fact that sweats takes over my face...NO WAY!!.haha WIPE!!
Pros:
  • doesnt cake
  • feels light
  • u can wet the spong thus making the application thicker
  • It doesnt totally fades out after i sweat
  • has spf 15,vit and licorice extract
  • BIG MIRROR!!(you can see your whole face)
  • non comodogenic,fragrance free,hypo allergenic
  • doesnt break me out
  • cheap compared to mac(700php +)
  • brightens and evens out my skintone making me look fresh.
Cons:
  • humidity and sebum resistant..hmm not that much
  • if youre not into the big compact packaging,then this is not for you.
  • i think they only have 2 shades..correct me if i am wrong.
EDIT:You can buy this in any neutrogena stand inside watsons


and i would like to show what my current neutrogena looks like after the smashing and bashing thing that Lil R did.

so that is it!!!good day everyone..what is your favorite face powder that you've been using for a long time now?..=D

4u2 wave blush(PEACH SHADE)

Friday, June 19, 2009
4u2 cosmetics has been around asia,and then it was introduced here in the philippines,distributed by bel-air(a new sprout american brand),its products are made in thailand but it was said to be a US brand.anyway i was walking through watsons and then i saw this stall that caught my eyes attention..it sounds new to me,and the SA was really nice,so i bought this blush from the wave blush line,they have 4 shades of this if im ot mistaken,i was supposed to get the baby pink shade but then,i was kinda scared of how bright it was,so i opted for this one

the packaging is simple,it not too big and not that small.



when opened.see how cute the blush' design is,its wavey!!3 different tones but same shade family.
close up!!at first i thought it was chalky,but when i applied it on my cheeks its creammmyy..



here are the swatches(top to bottom shade)it'll give you this peachy soft look.


the fourth swatch is when they are blended

applied on my face 3 shades blended
the blush cost 400++ i cant remember the exact price sorry.you can find it at some watsons outlet,the 4u2 line also carries very pigmented e/s..

Now the staying power,as you all know i have OILY to VERY OILY skin type haha,is there such thing..makeups doesnt last too long on my face even if its a high end product,so to make it short the staying power is so so..it stays for up to 3-5 hours on my skin when i have my mattifier and primers on,in an airconditioned room.its pigmented so you dont have to swipe a lot.you can use the top shade as a highlighter the middle as the blush and the bottom to contour,or you can blend the three shades.

SO overall i like this one.its cheap but its worth it.i can manage retouching.

and thats it if you have any question just leave a comment.thanks
