Underrated Products  

hello everyone, have you guys heard of OCTARD?  REIGN?   

for today,  I decided to make review of these products mentioned  but first let me take a selfie 😂

I love my look for today and I love how long it stayed. just ignore my uneven brows. LOLS 

products used. 

Reign Velvet primer 

Octard  Shade 41  (S41) 

Beauty treats matte blush 

Faceshop eyebrow pencil #3 

elf treat and tame 

Nyx prague 

LITERALLY those are the only products I used. NO POWDER AT ALL.   

The regin velvet primer – isnt bad for the price,  I got this for only Php 100. the texture  is comparable to an OINTMENT, It is clear and  somewhat jelly, it glides easily and has velvety finish.  

REIGN beauty

Octard –  this pot could last a very long time.a little does go a long way. you know the amount of primer we use?  it is basically the  same  amount you will ever need. 

however , I will tell you right off the bat  this is kinda hard to blend because of its creaminess.. so always put primer or moisturizer first to  blend it easily ,  use sponge or beauty blender instead  to evenout the product distribution.  This always give me the perfect flawless coverage…

Meiko – Octard  

time check : 

 930am –  took that photo 

5pm  –   still looking fresh 

7pm –  there was a little oiliness going on, but the foundation is still there ūüôā   

so this completes my Mini review. ūüôā  

let me know your thoughts about this  if you have tried them ūüôā

Brows before Boys

Its all in the brows!
Eversince I put up my own salon,¬† I’ve learned how to¬† groom, shape, draw my own brows.
I can go out without powder, lipstick but  the brows must always be present.

How do you know which shape suits you best?

Having a perfect brow takes A LOT OF PRACTICE.
It’s always a Hit and Miss with products.¬† It’s¬† almost always uneven.¬† ( but its ok,¬† brows are sisters,¬† NOT TWINS.)

You are lucky when you are one of those born with a perfect brows or if you have a very good brow stylist ( make sure to stick to them,  because they are certainly hard to find) 

But if you are like me,¬† who doesn’t want to spend money¬† for that every month ,¬† well ,¬† you gotta learn how to¬† do it yourself then.

WHAT DO U NEED?
1. tweezer 
2. brow shaping scissor
3. petroleum jelly
4. a good eye brow kit or pencil

WHICH PRODUCT IS BEST FOR BEGINNERS?  
I would highly recommended using a PENCIL for beginners because it is easier to use for outlining.

WHICH COLOR TO CHOOSE?
it really depends on your hair color.
it should always be a close match or a tad darker but never 2 shades darker.

PRODUCTS I higly recommend
1. The faceshop eyebrow pencil¬† –¬† i got mine from GH faceshop store,¬† buy 1 take 1 for only php160
shade :  light brown
I like this because its affordable and blends easily.

2. DAISO  brow pencil Рphp 88 pesos and it comes with a brow spoolie (which is awesome!!! ) 
shade :  natural brown
Aside from price point,¬† i like this because¬† its NOT CREAMY¬† therefore It lasts the whole day..and doesn’t need sharpening.
you can get this at robinsons galleria / magnolia

3. ELF –¬† brow treat and tame¬†,  also from Robinsons galleria makeup section. 
shade :  light  brown
This one helps the eyebrow stay in place.

4. Sharpener¬† –¬†
always sharpen your  pencil to get a smooth  outline

I have some recommendations for 
powder type and gel type,  but that is going to be on another post. 

so for now,¬† these are BASIC INTRO and information I’d like to¬† share with you guys.
hope it helps ‚ėļ
