I guess it’s not a secret that I love putting makeup on. I love experimenting on new looks, trying out new products, and seeing well-blended eye makeups a lot! Some people at work would be surprised at the amount of products I put on my face compared to theirs. I would hear remarks such as, “you don’t need that much products,” or some curious questions such as, “why do you need to use that?”
I remember reading an article before about how women shouldn’t wear too much makeup because men like women who keep it “simple.” Oh and that article came from a popular women’s magazine whose goal is to empower the modern women. Wow.
I created this look because it makes me feel more empowered and excited to work when I know that I’m all glammed up for the day. I hope you all like it and that you just do your makeup for you. To hell if they think it’s too little or too much, right?

LIPS: Matte in Detail in Krysle
HOW I DID IT:
After moisturizing, I applied the NYX Pore Filler all over my face and blended it using my fingers. Then, I used the Snoe Linear Equation Total Line Solution Wrinkle Diffuser BB Mousse Base for as an eyeshadow base and for my undereye area. For the coverage, I used the L’Oreal True Match Foundation in N7 (Nude Ambre) all over my face and blended it using a sponge, then the MAC Mineralize Concealer in NW35 on my undereye area then after blending, I topped it with the Max Factor Pan Stik in Nouveau Beige which also serves as a concealer/highlighter since it’s lighter than my shade. After all that, I set my coverage with the Nichido Final Powder in Ivory Glow.
For the eyes, I used the Happy Skin x Beauty Bar Bullseye Perfect Brow Trio for a fuller pair of brows. Then for the color of the eyes, I used the darker pink shade from my Ever Bilena Advance Eyeshadow 5 Shades in Amazing Pink all over my lids and a little of the darker purple shade on my outer crease area. Then, I used the darker brown shade from my NYX Escape with Rico 3 Color Shadow Palette in Love in Rio for the crease and undereye, then the white shade from the Ever Bilena Palette again on the middle of the lids. For the wing, I used the Maybelline Hyper Sharp Wing. Then I curled my lashes and used the Dolly Wink Long Mascara on them.
For the contouring, I used the Maybelline V-Face Blush Contour in Red for under my cheekbones and on the side of my nose bridge, blended it with an angled blush brush from Marionnaud, then I used the white shade again from the Ever Bilena palette for highlighting the nose bridge.
For the blush, I used my finger to apply and blend the Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Candy Coral since it’s a cream type of blush and then I just two layers of the Matte in Detail in Krysle on my lips. Nude lips is the way to go.
I love the balance this makeup look shows. The glammed up eyes then the subtle lip color makes it easier to focus on one element at a time. How about you, would you like to try out this look? What’s your glammed up makeup look for work?
