Heyyy so today I tried documenting my makeup routine!! During the process I find that it’s very distracting unfortunately. Everytime when I took a photo I kinda forgot what I wanted to do next. I’m not keen to document the process this way so I’m gonna stick to writing until I have a better way):
Anyway here’s the routine I did and documented. I did my makeup before my dinner date so the photos are taken as I go, so it may not be the best(:
• Kiehl’s ultra face cream
• Kiehl’s sunscreen
• Cyber Colours moisturising makeup base
• Pony Effect I’m Concealer
The good thing about taking pics is that I get to show you the amount of product I use. In this case, whenever I use the makeup base, I would use a little more as the product is a little thin. I know I used to say a little goes a long way, but gradually I find that I got better coverage when I’m more generous with it. And you can see that my skin looked more dewy after.
And whenever I use my Pony Effect concealer, I just squeeze a small amount on my small blending sponge. As I only needed coverage for my undereyes so a little goes a long way. Btw the amount in the pic is meant for both eyes. Another good thing I noticed is the concealer provided better coverage when I use the makeup base! So the makeup base is actually pretty good.
• The Nude Tude palette
• Kiss Make Heroine Mascara
• Colorpop Highlighter in Lunch Money
I think the most beneficial part about documenting is when I’m doing my eye makeup. I could show the area which I apply the different shades.
So for starters, I’ll always use my short fluffy brush to apply the base colour. Which in this case is my fave shade sultry, it’s been my go to shade for my everyday look. And what I do is apply the shade at the outer half of my lids. Then I try to blend out the colours to make it look spread out and natural.
Then I use my small fluffy brush to pick up some shimmer and apply on the mid section if my lids. I wanted a simple look but something that still pops through my specs.
And using the same brush I dip on sleek and blend that to the outer corner for more depth to the overall look.
For the last part, I like to use the smallest brush and apply some shimmer to the lower lashes area to make my eye look brighter and more awake. I also put the same shade in my inner corner but I decided not to this time. Then I use my contour brush to dip in some highlighter and apply on my cheekbones for an extra flair.
I took this opportunity to use my new Kiss Make Heroine Mascara! It’s very lightweight and I’ll say the formula is much thinner as compared to Revlon’s I didn’t have any issues with the drying time as some mentioned online in their feedback for the product so I’m glad about that. It looks really natural but at the same time made my lashes look super long!! I noticed some fibres inside the product too so I believe that’s what is helping to make long lashes haha Currently I’ll say I like both mascaras that I have. No preference!
And done! Just a simple look for a dinner date. Oh and I applied blotted lip in Drip for a pretty shade. I was wearing Dopey before but I think the shade is too dark so oh well.
This post took me so long to finish! I still prefer to just share my looks as and when, instead of going through step by step. Maybe I will only do a documented look once in awhile.. Well I still enjoy reviewing things tho!
