Makeup Look

It's been a while since I actually posted something about the makeup I wear for the day. So here is the look I have today :)


It is a simple wearable makeup with a hint of light blue and apple green. As most of you know, I am not much of a fan of artsy makeup so most of the looks I wear is subtle. To create the look, I started with a brown shadow as base. Starting with a color slightly darker than my skin tone, I pat on the color to my lids and blend it out so it gradually fades toward the brow area. Then I get a very dark brown shadow and contour the outer corners of my eyes blending towards the crease and mid section of my lid. Then I take a light blue shadow and pat it over my lids doing the same step with the brown shadow. I then used a navy blue shade and contour my eyes by lightly swirling the brush from the outer corner towards the crease until it blends well with the lighter blue shadow. To finalize the look, I take an apple green shadow and pat it on the lids starting from the inner corners blending towards the mid section until it is blended on the blue contour. Finish off the look with an eyeliner and mascara.

If you prefer a really colorful look, you can then skip the brown shadows so the colors will stand out and look very bright. :)

  5. I just use a regular digital camera - Sony Cybershot W220. I use a diffuser over the flash so the light hits my face softly and not too harsh.
