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. 💋

        ​Are you looking for a drugstore mascara that won’t smudge or   flake? 

        Something that holds up  curl and last all day? 

        My top pick is the L’oréal Extended wear waterproof  (  double extension in purple tube) . 

        It comes with a primer that helps the mascara last all day without flaking or smudging .  It made my lashes look longer, and thicker and no clumps at all. 

        This  is on sale  at  Robinsons Mall,  i got this for only php250. Until supply lasts.

        The sales lady said they’ll be coming up with a new one.. and i think its the SUPERSTAR mascara and Cant wait to try it out.

        Next pick is the Maybelline Falsies. this one gave  VOLUME,  super black lashes but not enough length.

        It had a little clumps at first especially when when you use it for the first time but it goes away overtime.
        The last One That I PERSONALLY  do not like is the Maybelline hypercurl. 

        IT DOES NOTHING. Total waste of money and I do not recommend buying it.

        TIP :  waterproof mascara holds up curl longer than the washable ones,  higly recommended for asian lashes

        As for me,  i’ll be checking in at Nobu hotel  just an overnight thing to spend time with my family and for the kids to play as well.

        Last night,  it took me 10 minutes to pack my stuff such as clothes,  charger, meds,  vitamins and stuff.
        And 30minutes deciding on which makeup to bring since i have a lot to choose from. But ofcourse I ended up packing my essentials for   no make up look .

        So here are my top pick : 
        1. Cetaphil moisturizer (  the silver pot )

        2. Maybelline baby skin pore eraser
        3. Maybelline fit me foundation (shade 115)

        -does not cake up on me
        -blends easy
        -light coverage 
        -the only downside,  it picked up 1 shade lighter than my usual shade.

        5. rimmel stay matte primer  ( i use this after foundation to keep my skin matte all day)

        7.covergirl trio blush
        Not so pigmented but i like the  natural color it gives
        8. eyelash curler
        9. Loreal  mascara  double extension curl  (my holy grail) 
        – no smudge, holds up curl, lengthening,  volumizing
        – waterproof
        – comes with a primer.
        10. Faceshop eyebrow pencil ( light brown)
