Photography 101: Home



Home….how do you define it?  Aside from the obvious that it is a structure that is built for people to reside, to get comfortable at the end of the day, the list goes on but one thing is for sure.  For me home is where your family is, who helps nurture you, love you, encourages you, shoulder to cry at times that you feel nothing’s going right and some who will always be there no matter what.

I ❤ Makeup Brow

Happy new year everyone! I have been AWOL for like quite a long time. I have been too busy with work (I know It’s no excuse) but I promised myself to pick-up whatever I’ve left behind.

So I’m starting off with this new brand (atleast for me) Makeup Revolution from their I ❤ ️Makeup I ❤️ Brow line.

There are two shades available and I picked up the 2nd darkest shade (I Woke Up This Groomed).

This brow palette contains a nice medium brown, taupe, and reddish brown shades which I think is perfect for my auburn hair color as well as a wax to shape your brow hairs. This also contains a small angled brow brush (perfect for product application) and a mini tweezer which is totally useless. Well…you can’t have everything right?

Application is good for filling out sparse areas which gives you a more natural finish as you can see above (Left with, Right without).

Staying power is okay but if you use a brow pencil under this would last you all day.

PROS:
1. Nice color pay-off.
2. Good brush applicator.
3. Lasts up to 8 hours or longer just as long as you avoid touching your brows.

CONS:
1. Tweezer that comes with it is a total bugger.

The Face Shop Round Brush

The Face Shop 01 round mini brush is the brand’s newst makeup tool from the flawless line. At first glance, it actually looker like Shiseido’s perfection brush sans the pricetag.

The handle has the right length for easier handling and steady application.

It has a slanted flat top to easily reach the crevices of the face.

The brush is densely packed so better be careful on picking up product as it tends to soak in products into its bristles. A trick that I do to make sure that I apply just the right amount, I dot on foundation or BB cream on my face, the I buff it into my skin with the brush for a flawless makeup look that works everrytime.

The fine pin-like bristle helps blend in product to the skin and evens out skin surface.

K-Palette 1-Day Lash Perm

The K-palette Lash Perm mascara lengthens lashes without clumps. It has a curl-keep-polymer that keeps lashes curls perfectly throughout the day! It’s a film-type mascara, which can be easily removed with lukewarm water without having to rub your delicate eye area…which I love. This comes with 4 beauty essences (panthenol, hydrolyze silk, red algae, and swertia herb) that cares for your lashes while creating an impressive curl and length.

The ideal brush length and inner bow-shaped brush curve sweep lashes in an upward curl instantly. The shorter brush bristles at the side is able to reach the root of lashes easily! It has a fine tip that makes it easy to coat short lashes and inner corner of the eyes.

Here’s a photo taken on our company’s Christmas party. Even though the picture is somewhat grainy, you can still see how my lashes were defined and it really kept my lashes permed up all night.
