2016 Makeup Trend Part 1

Mauves and brown lips have made their huge comeback last year and this year with the twist of current makeup trends like strobing, contouring and cat eyes. I've been trying to hone up my skills more by keeping up with the latest beauty trend. These days I've been stacking on strobe powders, liquid lipsticks, contouring palettes and darker foundation shades. Gone are the days when foundations should be fairer that your real complexion, and should I say fair skinned girls were a bit out these days? Well for years I've been taking care of my fair skin but now I'd love to toast myself up under the sun.. it's not because that I want to get darker, it's just because that healthy beach glow makes me look more alive. For years I've been receiving compliments for that after the beach glow, coz they said I look better.. eerrr... healthier.

While flashy, shimerring cheeks were in, it's now often paired with matte lips. I remember one rule I've read from the group of makeup artists that the face should be balanced. There should be shimmery and matte areas. Though sometimes I prefer my makeup being all-matte, adding a highlighter doesn't hurt to amp up my makeup.

One boring day I reached for my new and old makeups to see if I've been really improving as a makeup artist. Again should I blame those makeup slayers on Instagram and Facebook, they always make me question my ability and my existence. With their bomb faces, and mad skills, it makes me feel that my skills need more improvement, which makes me nervous. I'm more nervous when it comes to showing off my skills than showing off the brands of makeups I used. What I learned is that it doesn't matter how cheap or expensive your tools are. What you can deliver to the table is more important.

Now let me show you the outcome of painting my face. I've already applied 3 to 4 eye shadow in different shades and finish but just as soon as I opened my eyes they're gone, almost invisible thanks to my eyelids who seems to "hide" everything.

I was never flawless! But thanks to my ring light, it hides my flaws and made me look poreless and flawless though my pores were as huge as the crater of Taal volcano. The contouring and highlighting made my face look thinner, and my nose were oh so pointy I love it! So surreal though in real life the tip's too bulbous. Not to mention the thick cream foundation that's darker than my actual skintone and the flawlessness never ends lol. The power of makeup. I also had a hard time with my brows as usual.

I'm glad I've also discovered the perfect combo of L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss in Dreamy (330 pesos) topped with Me Now Kissproof Soft Matte Lipstick in No.9. (150 pesos). Both were available at my online shop Vixen's Vanity Lair. Topping L.A. Girl with Me Now Kissproof made it less sticky and longer lasting.

I'm happy to share with you that I've reopened my online store and we're offering Kylie Cosmetics!!
I've been a Kylie fan for a long time and I still can't believe I'm now selling her Lip Kits!!!
My makeup buddy and friend Sheena of Vanity Tease decided to sell these lippies and we're overwhelmed with the orders coz we got the cheapest in the market. In less than a month almost 40 Lip Kits were sold and ready to be delivered.

Since the title said it's part 1, please look forward for my next blogpost, I'll show my new makeups from my bestfriend! Plus her requested makeup look using her gifts.
Hint: There's Becca and Mac. There I said it! 
Another one to look forward to: My very own Kylie Jenner Lip Kit!!!
OMG I'm so excited!!! I hope I'll have lots of time to do it.
