Hi fellow friends! omg!
*blowing away all dust*
How long has it been? Since I first started my studies again for my degree, I left this blog for almost 4 months! *cries* I'm so sorry, I wanna write a lot of things but my time and schedules did't allow me anymore...*sobss hard* what a pity, I kinda regret taking art and design now but oh well.
Anyway to appreciate this special come-back-from-the-dead, I decided to do one blog post for Raya 2016 makeup. First thought was to make a video but wow, that's kinda too professional for the rookie me coz I never made one before. I shall learn how to do that later, slowly haha.
If you haven't checked Althea Glam Eid Collection 2016 on their website yet (my.althea.kr), go now!
A lot of good gems to choose from and goshhh, I'm swooning over the Witch's Pouch brand!
Makeup that I bought are:
W.Lab Blossom White Cushion in 21 Blossom Light
Witch's Pouch Love Me Blusher in 04 Indi Violet
Witch's Pouch Selfie Fix Pigment in 01 Like That
Witch's Pouch Selfie Like Shot Dual Lipstick in 03 Soft Coral & Red
Blingsome Dual Eyebrow Tint in Dark Brown
Etude House Bling Bling Eyestick in 01
Alright shall we start now?
And be prepared with a full and fast internet data, this post gonna load a lot of photos lol,
First of all, excuse my ugly naked face (lol). Tell me about it, I'm always impressed with how cushion works, easy to use and one or two light layers can already achieve what you want namely flawless skin. Forget about concealers, sometimes cushion can do better!
Got mine in shade 21, which is not too ghostly white irl and not too dark for my skin. It's a wee bit matte but still good for my dry skin, anyway, LOVE IT!
Move on to the eyes.
1. Stick a selefon tape at the outer corner of your eyes so when you draw an eyeliner later it'll make a triangle to create a half fishtail.
For the fishtail-like line, I used this, brown pencil liner from Dolly Wink.
2. That's how you make it looks like a fishtail. Just fill in the blank of the triangle shape I drew on photo no. 1 after you put on a selefon tape.
3. Forget not your eye puffs. It'll not considered as a cute eye makeup without puffy eyes okay haha, this one I used the Bling Bling Eyestick in 01 from Etude House.
4. This is the important part that plays a big role for this eye makeup. Look at photo below, I used this.
The Witch's Pouch Selfie Fix Pigment. This is not an eyeshadow but rather a sparkle flakes. You can use this on your eyelids or as a highlighter or luminizer, it works wonder and yes the flakes is really pigmented! Just as you can see, I skipped eyeshadow for this look and just use this instead and damn head over heels love it!
Tap your eyeshadow brush over the flakes and using the brush smudge it all over your eyelids, make the fishtail line you made earlier as a borderline.
5. Don't forget your eyebrow, cute makeup needs a straight and slightly thick eyebrow for the innocent look!
This is what I used, first make a few stroke using the brow tattoo pen (the one in a brush) following the shape of your eyebrow but make it a bit straight which means filling in the blank of your brow arch is needed before moving on and use the brow mascara next. You don't need a lot of layers, just make it smooth and brush off a lil bit using a different clean eyebrow brush to smoothen the look.
Now you're safe to go on the next step!
*Swipe off the excess of the sparkle flakes that fall over the cheeks or your face using a big fluffy brush before applying blush*
Remember, cute makeup doesn't need too much blusher, and that's the reason I chose this shade from Witch's Pouch Love Me Blusher, in 04 Indi Violet. The point of the blush effect is on the apples of your cheeks.
Don't skip the light contouring for your nose girls, the use of Etude Bling Bling Eyestick is two in one! you can also use it as a highlighter to create a taller nose bridge!
Featuring this baby below for the contouring on both sides of your nose
I lined both sides of my nose using KATE Tokyo Dual Liner and blend it to the side, and afterwards apply one stroke of the Bling Bling Eyestick on the nose bridge. Don't forget to apply it above your lips too to give a little bit more definition to your face and lips.
Next step is to put on the eyeliner and mascara (I skipped the falsies to make it simple). The eyeliner and mascara are both from Dolly Wink. Now can you see the fishtail effect at the corner of the eyes? Isn't it simple to achieve this look?
Last but not least, the lips! Oh gosh!! I love this Selfie Like Shot Dual Lipstick from Witch's Pouch! It's creamy and moisturizing and the effect it gives is awesome! If you love the gradient lips you often seen on K-pop girls, you gotta love this I kid you not! It's too pretty and sooo easy to apply!
Now I present you my simple but cute sparkle fishtail eye makeup look for Raya 2016, it's indeed very simple and easy to achieve but the look is splendid irl! Feel free to follow this simple tutorial from me if you love the look!
And don't forget to visit Althea Malaysia (my.althea.kr) for their special Eid 2016 Glam Collection!
I guess I'm saying goodbye, got a tonnes of assignment to face for now!
It's not everyday I give some gedik wink, so abaikan if you feel like puking the feast from your buka puasa anw (Hahahahaha!)
Happy Ramadhan and Happy Eid in advance!
