Welcome to my blog!
Each time I read a post I say to myself "why not start my own beauty blog and share what I've learned so far?" and I keep on putting off the idea until now.
My love affair with makeup started when I was around 9 years old and it started with my mom's makeup kit. Since then I looked forward to every school program and recognition days so that I had an excuse to put on makeup. Now I can no longer fight the urge to apply makeup not only on myself but on others as well so I enrolled myself to makeup school and I'm on the road towards a "beautiful" career path.
To start it off, I have here my very first eye-of-the-day (EOTD) which I also call the "I'm late!" look =P This is a neutral look suitable for running errands during the day, rushing to the bank before the cheque clearing cut-off time or even going to the office. This is quite an easy look and here is the breakdown:
Eyebrows: Brown eyebrow pencil blended with medium brown matte eyeshadow to give it a softer look
Eyelid: Shimmery eyeshadow close to my own skin color swept over the lid
Crease: Satin finish medium brown blended upwards keeping the ends open
Brow bone: Cream colored matte eyeshadow blended downwards meeting the crease color
Upper lash line: Black gel liner applied close to the lash line and slightly flicked at the end
Lower lash line: Black waterproof eyeliner pencil smudged with a bit of medium brown matte eyeshadow
Upper/lower lashes: Black mascara applied on curled lashes
*I did not use an eyelid primer for this one but I normally do as I have extremely oily lids. Sorry for the bloodshot eyes and fine lines, this is what I get for lack of sleep and working the late shift.
So this is it, welcome to my blog and watch out for more upcoming posts! xoxo
