FOTD: Very Pinay

I am so itching to try out my new Careline palette which I got from Ever Bilena. So basically, that is the reason why I came up with this look. I love how this look was able to enhance my skin tone. It gave me a really beautiful golden brown look; perfect for the theme since I am using a local makeup brand, why not make this look something which will enhance our beautiful brown complexion right?



- Jane Agua Ceuticals Sheer Tinted Moisturizer (Medium Warm Tones)
- Wish Pressed Powder (Beige)
- Careline Palette (Red Blush)


- Wet N Wild Color Icon Brow and Eyeliner
- Careline Palette (Blue and Light Blue Shade)
- L’Oreal Voluminous Naturale Mascara


- Watsons Moisturizing Lip Balm (Sweet Strawberry)
- Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Gloss (Timothy)


Using an N33 Fluid Foundation brush from Marionnaud, I applied the Jane tinted moisturizer all over my face. I love this product because aside from the fact that it is SPF 30, it is also organic. It really does take care of your skin. To set the tinted moisturizer, I applied the Wish Pressed Powder using an ELF total face brush.

For the eyes, I first used my Wet N Wild Color Icon Brow and Eyeliner to line my brows and lengthen them. Then, I used my new Marionnaud N37 Slanted Eyeline & Eyebrows Double Side Brush to apply the blue shade from my Careline palette thinly on the lids and on my lower lash line. I used the slanted part of the brush, btw. Then, applied the lighter shade of blue all over my eyes using a technique where I start inside going outside so that the inside will only have a little of the products and more on the outside; thus making it more noticeable without overly doing it. After that, I curled my lashes and used the L’Oreal Voluminous Naturale Mascara. I remembered Michelle Phan’s tip in choosing the best mascara fit for your lashes. If your lashes are like mine, short and thin, use a volumizing mascara instead because it has a thicker formula. Thin lashes are usually too weak to hold up a wet mascara formula so if you have thin lashes and you used a mascara with wet formula, you’ll end up smudging it all over the eyes after awhile.

For the lips, I applied first the Watsons Moisturizing Lip Balm and then the Urban Decay Pocket Rocket gloss. I am not a fan of lip glosses and I am so upfront about that. I hate the sticky feeling and how my hair always sticks on my lips when it’s too windy; but to complete this look, I disregarded that. The Urban Decay Pocket Rocket in Timothy smells like caramel plus it gave my lips a natural pink glossy glow.

For the finishing touches, I used the red blush from my Careline palette and set the whole look with the Wish pressed powder.

I love how this whole look really enhances my beautiful Filipina skin tone. It gave my face a golden brown glow and I know it would look great on majority of us, Filipinas, who have the same skin tone as mine. So if you loved this look, do tell me and if you tried it, show me a picture please!
