Throwback: Makeup Looks, Hair, Nails and Accesories

Hello there!! I'm not sure if it's going to be my last post for this year, my egg has been hatched! I've been so idle and lazy for this year, I miss blogging, applying makeups, and so on. For 2014 my brain's full of plans. For my new family, career and business. If I've been too lazy and idle I'll be extremely productive next year, it should be a resolution!!!!!

I'll do something better and extravagant for my online shop.I feel so guilty for being so happy go lucky, I'll do something special and exciting.

New Palette Sticker might be like this:

I'm so inspired by how Doe Deere made an empire out of Limecrime, Amy Doan has Sugarpill Cosmetics, Kathy Cervantes has Bitch-slap! Cosmetics and how Kat Von D has officially launched her own makeup line with Sephora.

Today's blog will be just about the throwbacks and flashbacks of my old and some were recent looks that I have and haven't posted. I want to share it again coz as I reviewed the past looks I've received so many questions about some makeup techniques or what lippie, nailpolish, eyeshadow, hair dye or foundation brands I used. Most of them were from my personal Facebook account. It makes me happy knowing that there were women, young girls and lady boys who admire my amateur talent in makeup application.I've also helped a lot of my old college and highschool friends and co-workers and they're soooo addicted to makeup now, sometimes I envy them coz they now found the right shade of eyeshadows, powders or lipsticks that really go or blend well for their complexion.

FOTD using Urban Decay Naked 1

Urban Decay Naked 1: Cult's fave and a holy grail. For easy mix and match of smokey brown eyes, you really can't go wrong with this palette. I couldn't remember the event/ocassion and the other makeups I used.

I used Virgin below the brow bone, Naked for the whole crease,
half baked for the inner eye area, Smog for the inner half crease and  Dark Horse mixed
with Creep for the outer V.

Maybelline Hypershine Diamonds gloss in Rose Carats

For my earrings I'm wearing Pearl Kiss Earrings by Betsey Johnson

Bhey's Wedding Day

When my friend Bhey got married her motif's pink and purple.
I did her makeup and I wanted to do this kind of look for her.
Since she's shy and doesn't like too much attention I wore it instead.

and lip colors were too pale. They smell good though. Most used items were the powder, mascara, eyeliner and brushes.

Glowing Nudes and Bronze

This has been my favorite look of all time. I love my haircut, haircolor, how I've perfectly done my brows, my lipcolor and the natural glow on my face. I couldn't do it again, I don't know why. It took me a long time while doing this look, I was waiting for my friends to pick
me up for our roadtrip, I had too much time and I've even contoured my nose.This has been the perfect look I've ever done, and I'll try to figure it out and do this look again. 

It's inspired by Kim Kardashian way back 2007.  I tried to contour my face
and bronzed out the pale side of me. I really want to get a good tan.

Kiwi Nails

Had coffee with my bestfriends at Tagaytay City. Cool weather means cool nails.
I'm using China Glaze Nail Polish in Kiwi Coolada.

Pink Lips at Sentosa
Everybody loves this pink lippie. It looks good on anyone,
and I'm wearing it in most of my pictures, though it wasn't really my holy grail.
I remember I went to an amusement park wearing this lippie and the girls
were talking about my lips in the washroom.
I brought it with me in Singapore and I shared it with my friends.
Couldn't remember the rest of my face again, but for lips
it's Mac Lipstick in Pink Nouveau.

Red Lips at Sentosa

I went back to Sentosa in Singapore and this time this lippie has turned every heads of
Singaporean Men, not because I'm pretty enough to cause a 360 degree head turn, but maybe my lips are too bright and shocking, even the female species in Philippines and SG were giving me a second look. It;s my HG red lippie, Mac's Russian Red. Red Nails were from Etude House.

I ordered 3 Nyx Lipliners online and it should be in pink, tangerine and purple. Unfortunately the available colors were all in shades of pink. I still bought it and gave it to my 2 pretty friends. The lipliner that I used as a lipstick is Nyx Hot Pink.

I'll be collecting more of my makeup looks for next year, for my hair I'll no longer dye it, I'm planning to be a black headed girl, so my husband and I will be twins. Hahaha. :D

Elf Single Eyeshadow in Raspberry Truffle & New Small Custom Eyeshadow Duo

After almost 9 months of avoiding the cosmetic aisle, (fighting temptation) I came across the shelf of Elf Cosmetics coz I want to see if they have their powder blush in Twinkle Pink. Unfortunately they only have the coral (forgot the exact shade name) and I'm happy to see that the mineral infused primer's available now here in the Philippines. Tempted but determined not to buy any, I checked out their single eyeshadow. There were different shades from beige to purple, and one gorgeous shade caught my eye.Since I'm a sucker for smokey eyes I really dig the Raspberry Truffle shade. It's plummish brown with sheer sparkle. Perfect for Fall/Autumn EOTD. It's even on sale! It was 50% off.. so I opened my wallet.. I thought I could resist.. but couldn't..The salesgirl even told me that the shade looks good on me, coz that time I'm wearing smokey brown eyeshadow for my eyes. I'm sooooo buying it... haha!

I noticed that the shade is very much similar and is a perfect dupe for Mac's Twink single eyeshadow. I've used it several times and good thing I purchased it.

You can get this gorgeous look from Kristen Stewart since Raspberry Truffle is like
plum/purplish brown that you can easily blend well with black eyeshadow.

If I'm gonna do this look I'll be using a different shade of lippie, more of like
an ombre lip that was similar to the Nina Ricci 2012 Fall/Autumn Fashion Show
Credit goes to the owner of the pictures.

Then while walking around the supermarket I had an idea of depotting the Elf eyeshadow from its container and make my custom eyeshadow duo.
I have two glittery eyeshadows that has been my favorite from Kirkland Borghese,
and the shades are Gold Digger and Radiance. The small brush is from my Elf's eyebrow kit.

(pics captured by iphone, sorry for the poor quality)

after depotting the single eyeshadow from Elf, 
the two eyeshadows from Kirkland perfectly fit in.

Tadah!!! It's so small I can easily carry it anywhere ^_^

I also got a new lippie from Etude House again, this time it's OR205. Perfect combo.

I still wish I can have my own custom palette but I want it from Mac. I'll choose Carbon, Brown Down, Cork and Espresso. I want the 2x custom palette or the 4x.
I just don't have any idea about the total cost... but I'm pretty sure it costs an arm.. or a leg.. or a neck.

Do you guys have any idea about the price of the custom palette in peso?
No time to go to the Mac Store! Please let me know! TIA!!
