Bohemian Makeup Look + Style

Monday, October 3, 2016

bohemian-makeup-look-style
Hello, October! I’m getting excited this month because it’s Halloween season. It’s the time of the year when I can try something new to post on my makeup blog. I’m excited to make some fun and creative looks for my readers to try this Halloween, or for other costume events. This year I told to myself that I would do something less scary… or less creepy. My past Halloween looks have included: Queen of Thorns, Forest Nymph, Creepy Doll, and Trippy Double Vision. I’ve always wanted to do a Bohemian look since it’s easy to create, but still looks cool. Here’s what I came up with! bohemian-makeup-look-style-1 bohemian-makeup-look-style-4 bohemian-makeup-look-style-2

Basically, I started by putting on my makeup normally. However, I added a dark, brown eyeshadow onto the creases of my eyelids. This helped to create depth and darkness. I also used darker eyebrow makeup than usual to get strong features for my face. To make it more Boho, I used the back of my eye liner pencil and dotted it with cream white eyeshadow. Alternatively, you can use white face paint. Brown colors are the key for this look, and the same goes for the clothes and accessories. I accessorized myself with brown, natural materials like a wooden necklace I got from the Philippines. I also put on a Boho wrist band that my boss gave me when I used to work in Abejas Boutique. I like how it fits with this theme. The headband on my forehead was actually an old necklace that Brent made when he was high school. So 3 things to consider for this Boho look are:

1. Focusing on brown tones for the makeup, especially for the eyes

2. Creating white dots around the eyes

3. Wearing accessories (the more, the merrier, especially on the neck) that are natural and have brown-toned colors.

What are you thinking of doing for your Halloween look?

I would love to hear your Halloween requests for makeup looks that you want me to create this month! 🙂

For the tears: I mixed a mixing gloss (not a lipgloss) + Pink Glitters from Sally Beauty Supply on a palette and use a pointed art brush to apply under my eyes. I used a lot of glitters than gloss so it will show up on the photo.

Special thanks to my mother-in-law for the roses and Alma Lapuebla for the title 🙂

Trippy Double Vision (Halloween Makeup)

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

9-29-2015_A

Inspired from Promise Pham’s Youtube & Instagram 🙂 She’s such a talented woman!

Halloween will be next month!(My husband’s favorite!) I prefer to do this kind of look (fun and cool) than creating a bloody/scary face (Sorry, I just don’t like scary stuff and also, I have a toddler! 😉 ). I only used my normal makeup products. I think the key for this look is the positioning of the eyes, nose & lips. It will also help if you use bright/dark lipstick to make both lips visible. White eyeliner ( I used Rimmel) was used for the eyes and eyelids. Like Promise did, I used false eyelashes as well.

Try this! It’s fun! 🙂

Painting: Makeup on Paper Towel

Tuesday, April 3, 2012
These past few days, I’m spending my free time in painting using new medium “makeup” on paper towel. I know most of the people especially makeup artists use makeup on paper for their face chart. I tried to do that and it was fun! But one time, I was cleaning my makeup brushes and thought to paint on paper towel using makeup. 
Here are some of my works taken from my mobile phone (using Pixlr-o-matic)
 “Isabel” makeup on paper towel
Inspired from Morgan Lamkin’s photograph
 This was my first work. I love purple eyeshadow!
 “Nunal” makeup on paper towel
I enjoyed doing these paintings! Try it! The things that you need are makeup, brush, paper towel (I prefer plain), spatula & clean container for mixing and a little bit of baby oil (for blending)
I can’t wait to do some more! 🙂

Butterfly Inspired II

Wednesday, February 29, 2012
Another butterfly inspired look! 🙂 I used disposable wand and plastic spatula to create textures and different brushstrokes. I think the dark purple underneath my eyebrows created more depth and drama for this look.
