Chyix2's Spring Make up Contest

*WARNING!*
a picture laden post!haha

Another contest entry...yipee! This time, its for Chyix2's Spring Makeup Contest

I was contemplating on what color will i focus on now... I did a rainbow look on another contest...then a green theme look on another...so now, i was thinking of something more alluring & feminine...on which i thought of using pink & purples! I guess everybody got an affinity for pinks & purples...

& i was able to do it...thanks to my trusty ol' CS Palette ^_~

& this is the look:

This is most challenging one that i've done so far...the pink & purple swatches on my arms are the proof of it....But i had fun doing this...you'll get to see later on...

I used 2 cameras on this...one is my digicam..& the other one is my old web cam...so the one that got the low resolution i used my webcam on it...since this is gonna be a picture marathon so this is better...all because it makes everything all the more easier...& since its low, it won't take too long in uploading & downloading...

Anyways, on to how i made this: (a step by step tutorial-literally!!!)

-As always..start with a clean, moisturized face...
-I have to make sure that my hair doesn't get in the way...so i put on a bandana...
-Then i'll focus on the upper part of my face first...ill do the eye makeup first...
-Start with an eye primer...this case i use UDPP - as always...hehe-I'll leave it to set, & ill focus on my brows first...
-I have an Eyebrow Duo...i took the darker shade & apply it on my brows to define it-Then time for concealing!...Nyx Concealer in Jar does the job..undereye & other blemishes..-Now comes the exciting part..the eye make up! ^_~ the star of it is the colorful palette...its obvious im excited,huh?...eye going big...lol-I numbered the palette based on what i use...So on the instruction, you'll see numbers instead of colors.....just refer to this pic so that you have an idea. I basically used 4 colors... (click it for a larger image)-Then to start it, apply number 1 on the lid area.-Then put number 2 on top of the first color.-So it should look like this:-Using a fluffy brush (i just use ELF Eyeshadow brush), take number 3 & apply it on the crease area...the area between number 1 & 2...we are doing this so to define the crease.-Maybe you are asking..why do we need to do that?...Maybe this pic will explain it better.see that?....Look at the left eye even without too much blending..it already looks good...So this look can be done with people who are still practicing the blending part...-Since i want it to be more defined...i would like to have a more defined crease...i took a small flat brush & apply number 3 on a windshield wiping motion.-Now its time to apply colors on the lower lash line. Take the angled brush then apply number 3 on the outer eye area.-Then apply number 4 on the inner area...-Number 4 is the color that i used as a highlighter.-Im almost done with my eye!
-I'll leave it at that first...I always apply ALL powders on my face first, including foundations & blush... So now ill do my face..
-Taking my Everyday Minerals foundation in Golden Medium, & my flat top brush...i apply it on my face on a circular motion.-Now its time for my cheek color! (Ellana Blush in Bliss)-So that my round face will have a shape, i apply it starting on my face...making a shape of 3. -I start it on the temple going to my cheek.-Then from my cheek going to my jaw line.-Now im done on the powders...yipee!
-Time to line my eyes...using a gel liner....but then i forgot to take a pic..sorry...gomen nasai..
I just put it on the upper part..on the outer corner...just a thin line. I just use it to define the eyes...
-To set the line that i made, i took the dark brown on my eyebrow duo & used that to set it.-This time, ill not apply mascara because im letting my lashes take a break from putting mascaras so ill just use falsies!-Then for the final touch, i lined my lower waterline using Nyx Eye pencil in Milk.-Im almost done,ladies...only the lipstick left... So i use Nyx Round Lipstick in Thalia
And there you have it! *letting my hair down* *taking a pic* then *fix it*
Im done with my spring look!Now its time for the real pic!
For those asking about my hair...yep, i have a natural wavy hair...As what my friend says, i have a 'wild' hair.I have tried everything to 'tame' it...straighten it...used hair iron..but it still goes back to its natural state...

Now,since i have a dry hair, i have to put mineral oil on it so to bring back its moisture & softness...

Wanna see how 'unruly' my hair is?There you go...haha..
i look all ready to be ironed!..

Since this is a spring look,i think its ok to put this...spring = wild..lol!

Ooopss..i forgot to include something...
Lesson Learned:
Don't be afraid to use colors even if you are not good at blending...there are some ways to achieve a good eye make up even if you are just starting..just be bold & experiment...remember, experience is the best teacher..
^_~

I really had fun doing this!
