smoke n' pink

This tutorial  will show you how to achieve a sexy smokey eyes with hot pink lips...

Make sure that you have applied your foundation and concealed your blemishes...

start with naked eyes...

I used the NYX jumbo eye pencil in milk and applied it all over the lid. 
This will make the colors pop for that smokey effect..

Taking a lightest gray eyeshadow , apply this color all over the lid, blended along the way

Now, taking the darker gray shadow, start on the outer corner of the eyes and follow along the crease
Keep it clean and light....

Taking a fluffy brush, make sure to blend it very well to avoid any harsh line

Now, taking a matte black eye shadow, dab it  against the outer corner of your eyes
this will give your eyes that enticing, smokey look. 
Be sure to blend it well, you should not see where the color begins or ends.

Now for the fun part, I used the Ever bilena glitter eye liner in white diamond
and tapped it at the inner corners of the eyes.
This will add a metallic look for sexier effect..

Now, apply a liquid liner to your upper and lower lash line

and pencil liner to your water line.

apply your favorite mascara and false lashes 

and for that sexy lips, I used the
Revlon super  lustrous lipstick in
Cherry in the snow.....

Now, you can enjoy your beautiful eyes
and sexy lips....

Have a fabulous day!

review: Maybelline Clear Smooth Face Powder

I've always been on a hunt on a face powder that would suit my oily and acidic skin. So I decided to try the Maybelline Clear Smooth Face Powder although I'm a little bit skeptical at first because I have never been a fan of their foundations. I chose the shade LIGHT, which a little bit lighter than my skin tone. It came with a nice package and a cheap price for only P199 pesos!

It's a good thing I tried because the powder was really nice!When applied, it was  smooth and silky. It's not scented. It's easy to blend or layer. It has medium coverage  which gave me a matte, flawless finish. It goes on very light and smooth and gives me enough coverage and oil control for quick touch ups. The added spf was an extra bonus! I used this to set my foundation and for lazy days, I just use my favorite Myra E tinted moisturizer and top it with this powder and I'm good to go. I really love this face power and will definitely repurchase.

  •    It contains high UV protection to prevent skin darkening and to have a fair, natural skin tone.
  •    The  fine powder glides like silk and melts smoothly on the skin. It covers flawlessly but looks    perfectly natural. I think it is also blend able for more coverage, just be careful when applied too much because it tends to be cakey.
  •    It has oil absorbing ingredients remove shine, for a clean shine-free finish for all day. 
 Have a fabulous Day!
