FRUGAL friday 

Rockin’ this look that I wore for my friend’s  birthday. I’m wearing this  off shoulder top which I got from greenhills shopping mall for only php150. 

Pruducts Used for this make up look are so cheap you can get then anywhere online,  pigmentation of eyeshadow palette   is not bad. Slightly muted but its still  wearable and workable 😉 

  1. Garnier 5sec blur – php200 
  2. Klean color foundation- php 199
  3. Lebalge eyebrow pencil – php 100
  4. Essence all about matt – php 250 
  5. Majolica Majorica cheek and lip tint- php 300  
  6. Loreal double wear mascara – php 300
  7. Loreal infallible cream shadow (liquid diamond) – php 120 
  8. Replica of MAKEUP forever  -php 150 

All items are bought online. Ebay and shopee. 

Lately I have been doing my brows first, then eyeshadow then the rest of my face. I noticed a big difference,  I feel like it gives a much  polished look. Maybe its just me,  maybe.   

So like I’ve said,  since the eyeshadow is very muted,  I had to wet  my brush  to get the color out.  Adding loreal cream shadow is optional but i wanted to give it a little shimmer so I did. 😉

For my lips,  I just went with a tiny coat of the Majolica Majorica lip and  cheek tint. 
So If you are looking for a cheap, alternative product ,  these are wroth trying especially the setting powder by Essences ,  I simply cant get enough of this.    
 

Top 3 picks for HOODED EYES

Hooded eye,  Asian eye,  Monolid its all the same, same issue, same struggle…bigger space or gap between eye and eyebrow thus making our eye look smaller  and sometimes droopy.  
No defined crease therefore making it very hard to put the dimension or finding the perfect socket,  Admittedly it  was a sturggle for me to find mine, a lot of trials and error  and not to mention OMG moments. 

so for those who are starting out with makeup, here are my  top 3 tips for you 

  1. Go for matte  –  because matte shadows tend to absorb light and it will give you that “POP” you want  to bring your eyes out more rather than shimmery shadows that will attract light and bring your eyes down  even smaller. the shimmery ones  will overpower your eye shape. 
  2. Find the right size of blending brush  –  there are a lot of blending brush being marketed today but don’t get confused.the key is to find the right size that fits your Crease, socket and lower lids.  every woman must atleast have 3 different size of blending bursh . (bigger bursh for lightest shade ,  medium brush for second to the darkest color or transition shade,  smallest one for defining ) 
  3. waterproof mascara –  because it will hold your curl LONGER than the non waterproof ones. 2 coats will make a big difference because it will open up your eyes. If you are not into wearing falsies ( like me) then water proof mascara will be your best friend.  

      I hope you find this helpful. 💋

      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

      so this completes my Mini review. 🙂
