make up and lighting

Today, I decided to take a photo of myself in front of the make up case with lights from AVON. I thought that I did a pretty good look using some basic items and I wanted to see how it would turn out on camera. This is the result.



The reaction of my friends and followers are nothing short of amazing. On Facebook, this photos has gotten almost 200 likes and on Instagram, more than 10 comments already. My profile photos on Facebook get an average of 50 likes so getting almost 200 is DAEBAK! The comments on Instagram have all been positive as well. It's just mindboggling how simple make up with the right lighting can do wonders.

For this look, I used Etude for my brows in honey brown which made my features softer. My on fleek eyeliner was from Avon and I love that it was so easy to put on. I literally just drew it on my eyes. My eyeshadow was from Naked which is composed of basic colors to highlight my eyes but not draw too much attention since I already had fierce down pat from the eyeliner. The blush I used is from Maybelline and I love how it made my cheeks look more defined. Lastly, the lipstick I used was from the Kylie Line shade of CANDY-K.

I had a few blemishes so I used the Dream Velvet Matte in Sandy Beige to cover it up a little bit but I did not put it all over my face. I just made sure that I looked flawless and I think I did. What do you think?

  1. Being a guy (sttaight I mean and sure of it hehe) I know nothing (like Jon Snow) about make ups, etc but I can appreciate beauty. Love the shot too. Selfie, right?

  2. I love how your overall makeup turned out but I especially loved the lipstick on you. The color really suits you. I didn't read that you used highlighter but you look like you did or it's just the light reflecting on the apples of your cheeks. I love the Dream Velvet Matte in Sandy Beige too. Does Avon still sell the traincase with lights?

    1. No highlighter. I still don't know how to use those. I plan to learn more about it this 2017. As for the traincase, they don't sell it. It was a gift from AVON.

  3. This look is really daebaaak! <3 You look really blooming here, there's a balance of softness and edginess this look. Factor din talaga yung lighting, very flattering! :D

  4. Oohhh.. that's a nice look.. being girl, I know the effect of pictures taken in front of a bright light. If make up is done poorly, it will show in the camera.. but this look.. you definitely nailed it! I'm not really into full make up because all I know is basic make up but what I can say is this deserves more likes! :)

    1. I didn't have much make up. Just really some eyeliner and eyeshadow plus lippie and blush. I'm glad you also liked it.

  5. I love the photo! Do you have a picture of the make-up case? Is this the one that make up artists normally use? I'm so jealous! I would really love to one of those :) Also, love the lipstick! I have a Kylie Lip Kit too and I have to stay, it's pretty sweet!

    1. I'll do a separate entry on the make up case soon. I'm starting to really appreciate it actually. As for the Kylie, I love the smell the most. The fragrance is amazing.

  6. Love your lipstick shade sis. It looks great on you. I would love to get one from Kylies collection but I have a lot of lippies which I got for review and I still don't know how to dispose and use them all. anywa, lights in train cases or something attached in vanity mirrors are a hype lately. I would love to get one for myself.

    1. I just got really lucky that AVON gave us one each. It really is the bomb.

  7. I've never used Kylie's lipsticks but everyone is so crazy about them! This look is pretty much flawless so I'm not surprised you saw so many more likes than usual. I wish I knew how to highlight like this as the light is hitting your face in all the right places here! Gorgeous look overall :)

  10. Great products you used! Love the look but maybe for me i won't put the eyeliner all the way on my waterline so the makeup would look soft. But overall you did a good job :) love the products!

  12. Wow, I loved the overall makeup on you! Your blog should definitely post more of these. Some makeup tutorials for certain looks, perhaps? This was a great shot and you really look lovely! :)

    1. I can only do basic make up tutorials but perhaps that could be something for a lot of women who only needs basic stuff no? thanks!
