How to achieve the ‘Drunk Blush’ makeup look, Here’s how!

The Japanese Igari look is the new makeup trend you need to get in on and this also known as “Hangover Beauty” created by a Japanese Artist Shinobu Igari (hence the name Igari Makeup), creating ‘natural eye look’ with emphasized look of blushing cheek.

To achieve this look, you need to apply blush under your eye and on the top area of the apples of your cheeks. The blush should be obvious to give an appearance like you are blushing way too much or are drunk.

How To Pull Off The Glossy Eyelids Trend Effortlessly

 

It seems that people are ditching mattes for metallic and gloss—not just with lips, but also eyelids. This trend was introduced during New York Fashion Week SS17 last September. But when Kylie Jenner post a photo on her Instagram, it intrigued me.

17571018_10209093013867905_110145156_o

So, here’s how to get this gorgeous glossy lids look in 3 simple steps!

Step 1: Primer

The first rule is to prep your skin with your favorite primer to make it look flawless and lasting. If you’re rocking glossy lids, then you better be rocking it the whole day or night through.

Step 2: Eyeshadow

The second step is to put your desired eyeshadow. Whether you want a sheer wash of color, earth tone or a slight shimmer, you may apply using your finger or a brush.

Step 3: Lip Gloss or Petroleum Jelly

Now, it’s time to get glossed up. Lightly dab some lip gloss, lip balm, or even petroleum jelly over your lids with your finger. The secret to that non-sticky feeling is to leave your crease clean. And voila! Your beauty look has just been leveled up to cool girl status!

MAKEUP101: Soft Warm Brown Smokey Eye Makeup look

Hi, Gorgeous! I have got a recent makeup look for you that I absolutely loved doing. A chocolate lid color with orange through the crease and lower lash line using the beautiful 35k Palette from Morphe,  I’m going to show you what I used to create this look. 

krish

Here are the 7 steps to achieve this look!

Before anything you have to prep you skin using a luminous make up primer or Moisturizer. Beauty Oil (Argan Oil) was used to give the skin its luminosity.

#1

Next, create a healthy looking base by evenly applying foundation on your skin. If you have areas that need extra coverage like under your eyes, you can use a concealer. Used MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC35, for under eyes I used L.A Girl PRO. Conceal in Ligh Ivory.

#2

For the eyes, take chocolate eye shadow and blend it all the way to your eyebrows, take orange eye shadow and mix it and blend.  Also apply same product to the lower lash line. You can also use creme eye shadow for this look.  Product used, Morphe 35k.

#3

Define your eyes by applying black eyelash mascara on your upper and lower lashes.  This will create that monochromatic effect on the eyes. For the eyelashes, L’Oréal Paris in Voluminous Carbon Black were used.

 #4

 Just comb your hairs up, soft strokes to keep them looking natural. For the eyebrows,  Anastasia Beverly Hills Gel in Medium Brown and Etude My Brows Mascara in Rich Brown.

#5

Contour your cheeks with some contouring or sculpting powder. Using a brush, apply this on the hollows of your cheeks or your jawline to create definition. Add some color to it by applying a peach blush on the apples of your cheek. Softly blend it to make it look like a natural glow and apply a small amount of highlighter to achieve the glowy skin.

Product Used:

Elf Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder in St. Lucia

Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator in Starlight

#6

Finish this make up look by adding some colour to your lips. MAC Lipstick in Stone.

Voilà!

Club Balai Isabel, Batangas: A quick beach staycation

Are you looking for a quick beach staycation? Batangas would be the best option! Since summer is quickly approaching, I decided to go by spending and experience the attractive scenery at Club Balai Isabel in Talisay, Batangas.

img_6440

Right on the shores of the world-famous Taal Lake and across from its volcano is a place where you can relax, connect and be with nature. Club Balai Isabel offers an option for an active lifestyle with all the comforts of city living. A mere fifteen minutes from the Tagaytay ridge, it offers an up-close and personal view of the lake and its world-famous volcano.

img_5773

For years, Tagaytay has been made famous by its view of Taal Lake and its volcano. However, the lakeside towns never became tourist destinations due to the lack of resort facilities. Manila-based developer Techno-Asia changed that two years ago when it planned to create a residential resort community called Club Balai Isabel. Today, Techno-Asia’s vision has grown from a four-hectare private subdivision to a nine-hectare resort.

img_6437img_6471img_6436img_6472

Club Balai Isabel’s amenities and facilities make it an excellent choice for holidays, corporate events, and special occasions. Enjoy the food served at the Terraza Cafe, take a refreshing dip in the pool, hang out in the cabanas; enjoy more active pursuits such as kayaking and sailing, or take a boat ride and get a closer look at Taal Volcano’s crater on horseback or on foot.

img_6448img_6445img_6446

The lush greenery and the proximity to the lake and the world’s smallest volcano make Club Balai Isabel perfect for an eco-tourism destination for environmental enthusiasts. They will be doubly glad to discover that the resort does its best to do its part in conservation and finds ways to minimize any negative impact on the environment.
