Zombie Make-up Tutorial: Zombabe! :D

I still can't believe that my first make-up tutorial here in my blog would start with a ZOMBIE look! LOL I was actually thinking before that I am going to do something like a sweet-romantic-on-a-date look or maybe more like dramatic make-up for night-outs. :D

Oh well, since we are now counting the days before the Halloween season, I guess it's now time to take-off that pretty face of yours and turn it to a most haunting and horrifying creature(or whatever you want to portray :D) on earth! LOL

like her.. a ZOMBABE :p

Zombies are classic. They are the timeless characters that you wanna watch over and over in a t.v series or in a movie. And tell me who is not guilty of playing it on a computer game. :p Those maybe some of reasons why I chose to recreate my own version of the living dead. Of course, to make it not so boring, I made it seductive, sexy and kinda lustful before eyes.. LMAO She's definitely not the old and boring type of zombie who just eat flesh around and gets a headshot. :D She's definitely hot and loves to play(before grabbing you for dinner bwahaha :D)

Now, let's start!


STEP 1: Get a lighter foundation and a baby powder. Blend the powder and your regular foundation on your palm. The warmth of your palm will help your foundation to blend easily with the powder. Apply evenly on your face and wherever your skin is exposing. You don't have to be flawless. Your skin should look rough and dusty that's why we mixed the baby powder with the foundation. I'm skipping the concealer. I want all my imperfections on my face this time. :D

Materials used:  Johnson's baby powder, Maybelline Clear smooth minerals, Clinique perfectly real make-up


Step 2: In making the artificial wounds, I used a baby powder and a paper glue (much better if you use a lash glue). Squeeze the powder twice or so (it depends on how many wounds you are going to create) and pour a little bit of glue in a small container. Your glue should be enough to absorb the powder. Blend it well using a toothpick and apply it on your face using the same stick. Try to be creative in making wounds. Make a small and big spots at the center of your wounds and leave it untouched. Wait until it dries.

Materials used: Johnson's baby powder, Prince Brand Clear Glue


Step 3: While waiting for your artificial wounds to dry, start now with your eyeshadow. First, lightly dab the navy blue eyeshadow on your face or wherever part you want to zombify your skin. :D Then, lightly strike the navy blue shadow with a red brown eyeshadow. This will create an illusion of bruises. Anyways, you may now notice my hairband. I wore it because my hair was messing up with the glue on my face. LOL :D

Materials used: Ever Bilena Cosmetics Collection Set-A, Careline Eyeshadow & Blusher

Step 4: With the red brown eyeshadow, apply it around the perimeter of your eyes. Gently blend it in a circular motion.

Materials used: Careline Eyeshadow & Blusher

Step 5: With your darkest brown eyeshadow, apply it as well around the circle of your eyes. Keep the red brown shadow peaking. In my case, I use a coffee color to substitute my dark brown shadow.

Materials used: Nichido Eyebrow Liner Duo Kit

Step 6: Using your darkest black eyeshadow, apply it on your eyelids as well as underneath your eyes. To get the color more intense, I wet my brush before  dabbing it on my eyeshadow.

Materials used: Ever Bilena Eyehadow Cleo


Step 7: I swear I didn't paid so much attention on my lips. I just wanted it to look it creepy yet sexy. LOL Apply the black pencil liner on your inner lips. Also, apply the dark pink lipstick to create a gothic look. Cover it with a lipgloss.

Materials used: Nichido Girls Night-out Blackest Black 01, Ever Bilena Cosmetic Collection Set-A, Wet n' Wild Lipgloss 


Step 8: By this time, your artificial wounds are already dry(if not, try drying it in front of your e-fan, it works for me :D). Wet your brush, gently dab it on your black eyeshadow and apply it on your artificial wounds. If you used a black glue, you may want to skip this step. :)

Materials used: Ever Bilena Eyehadow Cleo

Step 9: With your light brown eyeshadow or a tan shade, use your finger to dab it on top of the black shadow. The color becomes more pigmented if you are using your finger instead of brush in applying eyeshadows. 

Material used: Careline Eyeshadow & Blusher


Step 10: Finally, you may now shade all the spots that we left untouched earlier with a dark brown pencil liner. And using the dark pink lipstick(use something like a bloodshot color), the one I also used on my lips earlier, get the color using your lip brush, pour a little bit of lipgloss and dip it on the spots of your artificial wound. Lip brush is more easier to use because you can shade the smaller spots. :)

Materials used: Ever Bilena Perfect Eyebrow Dark Brown,  Ever Bilena Cosmetic Collection Set-A, Wet n' Wild Lipgloss 

When you're done, wear your sexiest dress and don't forget your red stiletto. Dress to kill babe! Rawr! :)) 
I hope you enjoyed my first tutorial. Have fun and Happy Halloween to ya'll! :)

REVIEW : Nichido Eyebrow Liner Duo Kit

Hello ladies! :)

If you have read my last haul, I included Nichido Eyebrow Liner Duo Kit in my shopping bag. And after using it for a couple of times, I've decided to share my review now to give you some info that may help you ( i wish :p ), in case you are planning to buy an eyebrow kit or if you are eyeing to get this particular product. ;)

so this is how it looks like, 

and the shades,

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: The eyebrow liner is in compact mirror. It has a mini angle brush and also a mini tweezer. It comes out in a square plastic brownish box and at the back of it, it says, Nichido Eyebrow Liner Duo Kit contains two shades of easy to blend compact powder, mini tweezer and eyebrow/liner brush. Color, shape & define your brows with 2 complimentary shades of powder in 1 kit.

DIRECTION (to use): Use flat end of brush to apply brow powder. Apply dry to make brows look natural or wet for dramatic look. For eyeliner, apply to lash base. Softly follow the curve of your eyes for a perfect look. 

I've already use this product ( twice :D ) two days before doing this review. And for the sake of this review, I took some photos for you to see how it looks like while wearing it. ;)

Hello to my no make-up eyebrow look :D  

My Eyebrows with the coffee shade ( this photo was taken nighttime )

My eyebrows with the black shade ( this photo was taken daytime )

As you can see, my brows aren't that thick but somehow,  it is growing in the right place. :p (I dunno but I would always hear that from beauticians whenever I go to the salon. lol Anyways, most of the time, I just wear a thinner line on my brows and not as dramatic as seen in this pictures. :D Here, I just followed the shape of my brows.

Pros :
*the color blends easily.

*the color is quiet flexible; when you apply it dry, it leaves a soft finish; when you apply it wet, the color goes a bit intense, which is good because it could easily compliment on any type of skin tone and hair color. 

*it works good as an eyeliner ( I used it on my pics above ).

*it can also use as a substitute for dark brown matte eyeshadow ( I used it on my pics above ). :D

*it does not grease easily (in case your sweat is running on your face)

*can also use for contouring ( also, I used it on my pics above )

*natural finish

*the price is ok. P238.00 @Watsons

Cons :

*the mini tweezer and angle brush are lame. The tweezer is really hard to use while the brush is too weak.

*it's a bit powdery. If it mess up in palette, it will surely ruin the shades.

TIPS: In choosing the right shade for eyebrow; if you're blonde go to two shades darker than your hair color; brunettes should go one to two shades lighter; and if you're a redhead,picking the right intensity and tone is key. If you're blessed with raven-toned locks, however, a coordinating deep black eyebrow product can not only look too severe, but can add a starkness to the complexion as well. Instead, dark-haired beauties, smoke up. Think shades of charcoal, soft black, gray, almost black, and even mahogany, deep taupe, or dark brown. (from bellasugar beauty tips)

What about you? What do you use for your eyebrows? :)

HAUL : Get prettified inexpensively! :)

Hello beauties!

So, What did I missed? :D  It's been two weeks since I last posted here in my blog and I feel like I owe you girls a lot. :D I gotta blame the pictorial in Ever Bilena for my buzzing sched. LOL

Anyways, I can't wait to show you now the things I bought from visiting malls these past two weeks. :)

Pretty Pink and Gold Bangles
Pink+Gold = Pretty elegant. ( P175.00 @Genevieve Gozum )

 Wish Nail Polishes Beach Babe
The shades that I got are baby blue, hot pink, and ube shake. :D  The nail brush and flower designed finger/toe separator thing is really really cute. I found the colors so pretty so I decided to buy a set. ( P69.00 @Watsons)

Marionnaud Angle Brush N38
It's my first time to try one of their brushes and since I don't have this type of brush in my make-up kit yet, I decided to get this particular brush. It's called N38 Slanted Eyeline and Eyebrow double side brush. What I love about this is the tiny brush which is perfect for the eyeliner and correcting eyebrows. ( P56.00 @Watsons )

False Eyelashes
Can you believe that this very cheap pair of false lashes can be found in a local grocery store? Yes. Surprisingly, it is more cheaper than the one I found in a local store nearby our house which costs P35. :D ( P24.95 @Robinsons  grocery store )

Ever Bilena Pro Flawless Finish Foundation
I remember when I was asked by the marketing manager of Ever Bilena about my favorite among their product lines. I said "I'm inlove with the liquid foundation pro flawless". :D 

The funny and amazing thing about this product was I hadn't read the labels or the desription written on it's box yet, but then I told the marketing manager (and I also kept telling my friends) that I'm in love with the liquid foundation *sshhh* :D The crazy truth behind was, as soon as I bought the item, I would instantly throw the box where the bottle comes out and just proceed using it (I dunno what made me feel like always-in-a-hurry back in college days or maybe I was just too excited whenever I get new stuff :p) and when it works perfectly on my skin, then I would definitely repurchase another one. 

The amazing part is when I finally read the product's labels/description after using it for almost two years! :D Then I only have two words to say: SO. TRUE. :) ( P165.00 @Watsons )

Nichido Eyebrow Liner Duo Kit
Aside from it's gorgeous shades which are so perfect for my thin eyebrows :D and very cute mini tweezer, the ultimate reason why I actually bought this kit was because I found the deep matte brown so perfect for contouring purposes. How multifunctional is that?! So awesome, right? It's a compact powder that is so easy to blend on your face. I really can't wait to use this. :) ( P238.00 @Watsons)

HENGFANG Pure Witchery Dip Liner
As you ladies know, I've been quiet experimental when it comes to eyeliner looks. It was my first time to see this eyeliner at the store and I instantly got captivated by the design. It looks like a witch potion which I found really cute. :D I actually didn't noticed the pencil liner(the one you see on the left). But what I noticed first is the liquid liner(the one you see on the right) which is most likely made of a hard pointed material and not a brush. I've been quiet used to on working with an eyeliner brush and not this one although this one is good when you want to extend your eye lining on the corner of your eyes. You can easily work your hand with this particular liner.

The only thing that disappoints me with this product is the alcohol smell in the liquid liner part. Although it doesn't hurt my eyes whenever I apply it, the alcohol smell is way disturbing. :( I wonder how much percent of alcohol do they have to use for this product. :/ ( P57.95 @Robinsons grocery store )

So there, beauties. Another cheap buys that can somehow make you pretty! :) Btw, have you tried any of these products? How did it work on you?  :)

Lootbags: Sent! #ThankyouEverBilenafortheawesomemakeup :)

We won! :D

Remember a month ago when I posted about joining in Bestfriend's Delight promo in facebook? Your click on the like button of our photo entry made us winners! And I am so greatful to tell you guys that me and my sister are now enjoying the goodies from Ever Bilena Cosmetics. :)

These 'lootboxes' were sent via LBC, last Friday early morning at our house. One for me, and one for my best sister on earth! :D

Can I just thank the one who wrapped these boxes so neatly? :D I really appreciate the effort! hihi I dunno but I really love seeing a gift that is wrapped up so creatively and neatly :)

I know, it took me a while to blog about this promo like I said I would update you as soon as we won. It's because I was still waiting for them to drop the lootbags on our doorsteps :p and of course, we're still kinda waiting for the photoshoot with the latest FHM cover girl and gorgeous Ever Bilena model, Ms. Daiana Menezes! :D

Anyways, I know you ladies are now excited to see the beautifiers which we got from winning. And I am also so excited to share it with you! :D Now, meet my new babies.. :)

EB Advance lighting Lipgloss
I still can't get over with this lighting lipgloss! It's captivating red color is so perfect on my lips! :D The lighting effect is so crazy! So cool! :)) The light automatically turns on whenever you lift-up the cap. (I know you can imagine me saying these words. I sounded crazy! LOL ) forgive me if I really can't get over it. :p :D They sent me two glosses but my girl friend took one of it IN-A-WINK-OF-AN-EYE. That fast! LOL! I'm so excited to use it in a fun night-out! :) 


EB Extreme Lipstick
They sent each of us two of my fave lipstick! Yay! I am so lucky that the colors are different from what I've already boughtAmbrosia and Adore U added in my extremes collection. :D Sorry but I'm not gonna say more about these lipsticks for now because I'm planning to give it an exclusive review soon. :)

EB Advance Sheer Compact Powder
I must say that I am a bit 'choosy' when it comes to getting the right compact powders because I believe that picking the wrong one could instantly bring little enemies on your entire face. LOL! (yep, I've been there! :p) So, for this one, I will probably try using it first for a month or weeks before giving my full review or recommending it to anyone. Anyways, I've already tried using it once, and so far it didn't cause my face any irritation, no cakey finish, less oiliness the entire day and lightweight feeling on face. So far, it's doing a good job.

EB Garden Flowers
Geez! I swear, these colognes reminded me of my Victoria Secret Perfume. The packaging is so VS! LOL Maybe it is part of their marketing strategy. They sent me two bottles. Yay! Scents are Cherry Blossom and Apple Blossom. I love it's sweet scents (reminded me again of err.. :p ) but it doesn't really lasts that long. If you wish to have an inexpensive cologne but has almost-same-smell like VS :p, then this is a great substitute for the expensive one. :D


EB Cheek Blush with UVA/UVB Protection
Just like picking the right foundation for my face, I am also picky when it comes to choosing a blush. It's my first time to use this one and I'm quiet amaze that they were able to choose the right blush color that's perfect for my skin color! :D I also love the fact that it is formulated to provide the much needed sun protection as well as infused with Vit E, C, and K to moisturize, soften, and enhance your radiance. I guess I found my new blush. I am ready to dump my old one. :)

EB Cosmetic Collection
OMG! Thank you EB for this because I've been actually eyeing this one whenever I go to the mall. I really wanted to buy one for myself but I was also thinking if they will include this in my lootbag. LOL! I got really excited when I saw this one. I really love the colors of the eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick! So perfect! :D You'll be surprise if I tell you that all my photos above are colored by this awesome pallete. :D 

More vanity photos using this Cosmetic Collection.. :D

Again, Me and my sister would like to thank everyone who liked our photoentry. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much! This is an early birthday gift for me so thank you so much guys. :)

And oh, who will forget the one who took our awesome photos which we submitted in EB fanpage? LOL! It's my dear cousin, kuya RB. Thank you beks! Mwah! :D I hope we can bring you in the shoot. :)

And yes, the photoshoot is coming real soon! *Excited* Of course, I wont forget to update y'all about the happenings. :)

Anyways I hope you enjoyed our gifts as much as we are enjoying it. :p Have you tried using any of the make-up in our lootbags? Tell me which one do you like most. :)
