Gym Makeup Tips

I have a little fitness secret to tell you. I wear makeup at the gym when I workout. Shhh… Okay, okay, before you go ahead jump and judge me, let me tell you why! Well I just don’t like going out there bare faced considering that I have to be travelling at least 30 minutes going to the gym. I do commute so you’d understand that I would want to look at least presentable with people around while I am just sitting there with my earphones on listening to my music list. And hey! The gym is a room full of mirrors, who doesn’t want to look good? Haha!

Anyway, I don’t really go heavy on makeup when I workout because the last thing I want to have are breakouts. Sweat mixed with makeup is not good as it can clog pores causing breakouts. That is why it is not really advisable to wear makeup during workout, but if you MUST (like me) be out there a little made up, make sure you use the right products. I personally just to simply touch up my face with my few makeup must haves. Here’s my list below:

Water based moisturizer – I love to keep it lightweight. Water based moisturizer is just refreshing to the skin while it does its job in controlling skin’s oil and shine.

Etude House Make Up Haul Review

etude house makeup

Hola ladies! I just have the biggest makeup haul last month and I am super excited to share them with you here because I am totally inlove with everything that I got, all from Etude House. I wanted to make a review of everything since I literally had almost all of them applied, I don’t want to overwhelm you with tons of stuff here. Let me share instead my two most favorite and a little bit about everything else.

Before we start though, here’s a list of what I have (so far :D).

  • Precious Mineral BB Cream Blooming Fit #W24 HONEY BEIGE – love its shiny and glossy finish! I can actually skip my pressed powder with this one (but of course, you don’t have to).
  • DEAR MY BLOOMIN SHIMMER BLUSHER OR2
  • Eh Big Cover Cushion Concealer Spf30/Pa++Beige
  • Play 101 Stick # 3 Beige
  • Et.Drawing Eye Brow #3
  • LASH PERM PROOF MASCARA WASHABLE
  • [Berry Delicious] Color In Liquid Lips_Juicy
  • Tint My Brows Gel (not in the picture – will make a separate review for it)
  • Etude House Lip Perfume Breath Mist #3 Apple (also not in the photo – separate review soon!)

As I’ve said, I totally love everything! They just blend in perfectly but today, let me highlight on the Lash Perm Proof Mascara (water proof – washable).

lash perm

It is fFormulated with Triple Coating Film. Lash Perm Proof Mascara supplies Precise lash definition and Long lash with its unique waterproof formula that won’t tears or sebum. I like this mascara so much as it makes my lashes look long and dramatic. My lashes are medium long but they definitely needs some definition and by far this is one mascara that gave my lashes a glam finish as if I have some extensions on. It lasts all day so I don’t have to retouch (I normally do 2 coats).

Note: Wand doesn’t get filtered well from the tube so be extra careful in applying it to avoid lumps.

Personal Verdict: Love!

Play 101 Multi-Color Stick # 3 Beige – Creamy Texture. Long-lasting, Easy and Multiple Makeup Usage eyes, cheeks, Makeup Foundation, Lip primer and makeup concealer that creates gorgeous color with a smooth and sheer finish.

The Play 101 Multi-Color Sticks come in numerous different shades from #01 to #15. Mine is #3 – Beige, perfect for my morena skin tone. I love the fact that it is multi-function, thus, I can have just this one in my purse and I’m good to go! I can’t wait to try more colors! I think I’ll go for #13 (rose gold) and #11 (shading) – can definitely used it for contouring.

Personal Verdict:
Love, Recommended!

Till next time ladies! I am excited to share more of my Etude House Makeup haul!

New Makeup Trend – Strobing

While contouring has been a hot trend on makeup for quite a while now, many still find it tedious and hard to master (raising my hands!). I seriously think contouring is a bit challenging. So if like me, you are looking for a less intense and less-intensive way to highlight your face, STROBING is for you!

What is Strobing?

It’s basically good old-fashioned highlighting. According to makeup artist Susan Giordano, this technique has been around in like forever but it’s just been given a new name. Strobing is to accentuate your features without heavy shadows. The only product you’ll need for strobing is an illuminating highlighter—and lots of it. It focuses exclusively on highlighter, applied where light would naturally hit your face (so, your cheekbones, brow bones, the center of your forehead, down your nose, and on your chin.)

This is a sample work of my awesome friend and super talented MUA Inyaki Yuson. Looking forward to his step by step tutorial for this so I can share it with you guys. This is actually mix of contouring and strobing he did, I just love how fabulous it turned out.

Some Tips:

  • Glow-y and Glaring – there’s a huge difference between the two! Strobing aims for glow-y. Avoid anything sparkly—you want products that glisten rather than flat out shimmer
  • If you have an oily type of skin, a light highlighting powder on the points of the face that light hits or eye shadow would be great to rock some glow.

Have you done it yourself? If so, leave us tips on how to do it and how to achieve an amazing result.
