Two Valentine’s Day Makeup Looks

Hey guys! THE DAY is here! Are you excited??? Kayo na may date! Hmf! πŸ˜›
Here are two other makeup looks I did which was inspired by VDay! πŸ˜€
Actually, I just changed the lip color. The first one is geisha inspired (hope it looks that way haha) while I was going for a sweet “first love” pink look in the second one. πŸ˜›

First Look: Geisha (Reddish pink and white eyeshadow + red lips)
Hope it ain’t disastrous. πŸ˜›
Tryna be artistic LOL

Second Look: First LoveΒ (Same eye makeup + pink lips)
Looks more coherent than previous look. LOL I can’t believe I used the word “coherent” in describing this.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!Β 
Whatever you’re doing today, do it with love! πŸ˜›

Be Berry Pretty For Valentine’s!

Valentine’s Day is less than a week away! No one to spend it with! Boohoo! πŸ˜›
Whether you’re a single lady like me, or you have someone special in your life right now, VDay should still be every woman’s get pretty day! Single hunnies, let’s strive to look blooming and “in love” on the 14th! Who knows, the next guy you smile at might be “THE ONE”! Committed ladies, make your man so proud that he’ll do a male version of Papi (Mami? LOL). Yeah, bring on the cheese! πŸ˜›
So, le single me tried to come up with a cute Valentine’s Day makeup look a few days ago (and posted this just now. Hurray for procrastination! :P) and here it is. Not a makeup expert, especially with eyeliners hahaha!
I used Wet n Wild’s Knock on Wood eyeshadow trio, which has a cranberry/red plum shade (hence the title of this post :P)Β for the lids, a medium brown with plum shimmers for the crease, and a light pinkish mauve for the browbone. I lined my upper lid then I applied a frosty eggshell white liner on the inner corners of my eyes and almost half of my waterline. I just realized I haven’t done a “closed eyes” nor a “looking down sideways” photo to properly show the eye makeup I did, heehee. For the cheeks, I applied a light pink blush and for the lips, after putting on lip balm, I applied a tint first before finishing with a medium rosy pink lipstick.

Memoirs of a Gay-sha! :P

One of my favorite books ever is Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. It’s because of this book that I secretly wanted to have been born in 1930s Japan and trained to become a geisha (sans mizuage and you-know-what extra services). I absolutely fell in love with Zhang Ziyi in her portrayal of Sayuri (and yes I will name my future daughter Sayuri, as an attachment to her would-be full first name). It’s quite ironic that Chinese actresses Zhang Ziyi, Gong Li (as Hatsumomo) and Michelle Yeoh (Malaysian in citizenship though, as Mameha) got to play the three significant female roles in the movie version. They had to speak in English and I wonder if there are no Japanese actresses that can do that. (Well they’re known to be very nationalistic. Don’t hate on me, I’m just curious.) Another factor would be because these three women are well-known in Hollywood and all over the world, so why sweat it right?

Anyway, this is not a movie review nor a book review… errr… The other day, I put on this amazing maroon lipstick from Fanny Serrano and I was inspired to channel geisha! A little tweaking from Picnik.comΒ (my new best friend. I don’t have Photoshop installed ’cause mine’s missing, I haven’t explored PhotoScape yet which I installed late last week, and Picnik’s super easy to use. Magpaliwanag ba raw? Stalling tactic… Hahahaha!) and I (almost?) achieved the flawless paper-white, blood red-lipped look of a “modern-day” geisha (gay-sha in my case LOL).

TA-DAH!

Behold the modern day GAYsha!

Be more forgiving! Heehee. I’m not a makeup expert (obsessed with lipsticks though. :P).

Products used:

  • Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover in BO10
  • Johnson’s Baby Powder Nourishing with Milk for the extra whiteness, (I did not have any mena or similar product at the time hahaha)
  • L.A. Colors eyeliner/brow pencil
  • Fanny Serrano lipstick in Sweet Kiss
I think I used the CinemaScope effect on this one.

I just remembered, it’s my first time to show my face here (aside from my pic at the About Nin page). πŸ˜›
