Kim Kardashian Inspired Look: Warm Tones and Apricot Lips

It's my birthday once again and I suddenly have this urge to recreate another Kim Kardashian Inspired Makeup just like what I did last year. This time I'm sticking to my signature and favorite colors and I actually haven't seen any mua or guru replicating this look. Not only that I'm a big Kardashian/Jenner family fan but what I'm actually rooting for and so inspired about is that most of their makeup looks were done by my favorite makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. J.lo started this neutral glowy bronzed skin and Mario has replicated it so well with a twist of his own creativity and skills, doing a perfectly flawless makeup for his celebrity clients. Now the trend for neutrals, smokey browns and warm coppery eyes have been grazing Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr as most muas have been doing neutrals and no makeup makeup, plus the major contouring trend. In my part I still need to learn more and soon I'll be practicing and painting my friends' face and I'm excited to share it with you.

My take using Canon DLSR. In my honest opinion, I prefer using the back camera of my Samsung with flash on coz the true colors of my eyeshadow and lipstick really shows. I've had several pictures taken with DSLR and it didn't do any justice for my MOTD. I couldn't see the vibrant colors on my eyes and lips, but then my cheeks were flushing perfectly. Later I'll show you one photo taken using my cellphone.
This is my all time favorite makeup look from Kim and it's very much similar to the makeup look I did on my wedding day. It flatters any skin tone and since most colors were from brown and orange family, it doesn't look too much and it can create a sultry glow.. I saw the same makeup look during an interview with local celebs Maxene Magalona and Ellen Adarna having an interview with Tim Yap prior to my wedding in 2013, that's why it became an option for my bridal makeup.

The MOTD's a combination of warm tones from my Sugar Skull Cosmetics Palette and to achieve this look I really have to contour a lot and warm up my skin with bronzers and peach blush. Since I'm not into sharp contouring I just used a darker powder instead of a darker cream concealer. I have layers and layers of eyeshadows mixed in together just to create the right color I saw on Kim. On my lips I even dabbed it with the same blush powder I used on my cheeks. Unfortunately if you can see the current situation of my Mac powder blush, your heart will definitely break. Mine did, when my son threw it up in the air and had an epic smash on the solid ground.

Using my cellphone's back camera with flash on, here's one good shot: pores and flaws visible.
Since Kim Kardashian's skintone is far different than mine, I didn't look so glowy and peachy and I already think my face looks too dark for using a lot of bronzer. Just a natural looking flush will do, and I also didn't use thick false eyelashes coz my eyes were already small, it'll automatically block my eyesight if my lashes were heavy. Overall, I'm in love with this makeup look, and it's something that I would wear everyday. I love how healthy I looked in pictures and makeups can really fake everything. Can you even tell that I'm anemic?
Thanks for reading lovelies and I hope y'all liked my MOTD. I'm thinking of more makeup inspirations and theme makeups and a little, just a little product review. Ciao~!

A Coachella Themed Party

It's a deep sigh that we don't have much festivals here during summer compared to what they have in there in America, and I'm also talking about the infamous Coachella that I've been dying to experience since I'm a concert/music festival lover. My cousin Atta told me there's a counterpart here in the Philippines called Wanderland, and we're still planning if we're gonna attend next year or not. Though the plan isn't that concrete yet, I had fun just tying a simple laid back Californian vibe when my bestfriend's younger sister had her 18th birthday Coachella style. Actually, I was the one who suggested it since they're aiming for a pool party. Most of my bestfriend's cousins were girls so it'll be nice to see flower headbands gracing their heads. It was just a simple celebration that became cuter since we're all game for a bohemian style. 
Here's me on my way to the party surrounded by Jessa's balloons. I love this shot taken from the front camera of my Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime.

What I'm wearing that day is a boho inspired off the shoulder floral cropped top from Cotton On and I got it as gift from my bestfriend. It actually shows too much skin, the back part's open and the flowy lower part exposes my belly. I love it since it was hot that day my outfit made me feel more comfy. I just paired it with jeans since I think wearing it with mini skirt or short shorts is too much for a birthday party. Maybe if I'm in Boracay I'll pair it with super micro minis and all. Every girl in the party got flower headbands too. Mine's from Forever 21 and I picked it since it matches the flowers on my cropped floral top.
I also did the hair and makeup of the debutant. Jessa's like my younger sister, as I've seen her since she was less than a year old. My concept for her look is fresh, youthful and glowing. I used neutral colors for her eyes and soft curls for her hair. To perfect the bohemian/coachella girl style I finished off her hairstyle with of course a flower headband.
Makeover! I did my bestfriend's hair and makeup, and also my other friend Karen's soft glam look.
That day I also get to spend time and hang out with my high school friends. It's like we never get old and we're still as crazy as the old times. Laughter never ends and rude mouths filled the room where were staying in.

For my MOTD I chose most of the products from Mary Kay. I'm proud to tell everyone that I'm now an independent beauty consultant and soon I'll be attending several seminars and trainings related to skin care, colors and business and I've accepted a business opportunity. I'm so excited about it and it's making me really busy.

Here are my selfies and my skin's really glowing, and I was even told my skin's so flawless that day. With the right combination of Mary Kay products here's the result.

The night before I used the Timewise Miracle 3 in 1 cleanser, used the sample pack of Microdermabrasion set and finished it off with the Age defying moisturizer.

For my MOTD, here's the list of products I used:

Mary Kay CC cream
Mary Kay Luminous foundation in Ivory 5
Mary Kay Mineral Powder in Beige

Kiss me by Isehan Heroine Make Eyeshadow in Yellow Sapphire
