Miners Matte Factor Lip Paint in HOT PINK

Hi everyone!

I was really supposed to go to bed but I can't help it! I want to blogggggg! I haven't slept for more than 24 hours. I went to school early in the morning to get enrolled and I finished at around 3pm! The line was insanely long! Then at 6pm I did my sister-in-law's cousin's makeup for their Reunion/Halloween party (wait for my blog about that) and now it looks like I'm the one who's attending a Halloween party because of my very dark and big eyebags! After this, I swear I'll go to sleep. I just want to share with you the Miners Matte Factor Lip Paint in Hot Pink.

I wore this today at school and I super love it! I thought the color would be really as pigmented as it looks outside but it's actually a bit sheer so it turned out to be a very pretty, wearable pink lip color. It's actually great for daytime looks!

I wore minimal makeup today at school because it's appropriate and I know I'd just look super wasted at the middle of the day but I wore a long-wearing foundation that I can trust and that is the Revlon ColorStay Whipped foundation. It stayed on my face the whole day! From 8am to 9pm today! If you haven't read my review about the Revlon ColorStay Whipped foundation yet, please click here.

I also want to commend the Miners Matte Factor Lip Paint in Hot Pink because it also stayed on my lips for long hours. I applied it at 8am before I left the house and at around 2pm before I left school, the color was still there. Of course it sheered out already but only a little. The color was still noticeable. It's a shame I didn't take a photo of before and after because it's impossible to take photos like that when you're standing on a line at school!

Here's how the lip paint looks like after application. It doesn't look like a real hot pink color because it's a little sheer. That's the problem with these Miners Matte Factor lip paints --- the colors are sheer. It looks matte but believe me, it doesn't really feel matte at all. My lips still felt soft and supple although the dry skin kinda showed off a little as you can see in the photo.

I would definitely continue wearing this for school and for daytime looks. It's awesome. Even after eating crackers and drinking juice, the color still remained the same. However, when I ate rice for lunch, the color on the middle part of my lips faded out and it looked like I had lined my lips with a pink lip liner because the color on the edges was still noticeable. But mind you, that was already 3pm. AWESOME!

If you're interested to try out these lippie, you can get them from Lipstick Avenue for only PhP300.00!

Bye now! It's time to go to bed. Goodnight!

Stay awesome and accomplish your mission! :)

Halloween Makeup: Special FX Unleashed Pink Fighter

So, who's ready for Halloween? ;-)

I was thinking of something to do for my Halloween special makeup this year. Last year, I did a Wounded Shewolf makeup. If you haven't seen that yet, here's the video:

That was actually like my 3rd or 4th video ever in YouTube and I was still using my laptop cam that time that's why the video has low quality. Anyway, this year, I did something almost the same. The makeup that I did also has wounds but I added a twist. I was actually inspired by the Special FX terminator that Promise Tamang Phan had created. Promise is the best when it comes to makeup transformations! She's AMAZING! I was also inspired by Lani Jayme of Makeup Artistry by LJ. Check out her makeup inspired by Candise City's tattoo!

Isn't it amazing? Instead of doing the exact makeup look, I changed it by doing zebra-like prints and I just made a neutral eye makeup with winged liner and dramatic eyelashes. And also, mine is kind of disgusting! Haha! I added fake blood.

Not being narcissistic, I actually can't stop looking at my photos after my solo photo-shoot! Hahaha! I love how the look turned out! It's unfortunate that my camera went ballistic before I film this a tutorial for this. I was supposed to film this but then my camera vibrated again! I hate Sony DSC T70! It's time to change my camera!!! BUT the camera had the time to rest while I was doing my makeup so after I finished doing this look, I did film a very short movie displaying the look in some kind of a cinematic way.

Anyway, since I didn't get the chance to film a tutorial for this, I'll just share with you the products that I used and bombard you with lotsa photos!!! I just used the exact same technique I used for the fake wounds in my Wounded Shewolf. Tissue + eyelash glue = AWESOME!


Watsons Tissue torn into pieces (depending on the size of wound you want to create)
Aido Eye Putti eyelash glue
Tweezers to cute the fake wounds
Careline Lip Gloss (red, for blood)
Fashion 21 Colour Shine Liquid Lipstick (red for blood)
Black, pink, red lip colors from Dollface Cosmetics Vanity Palette
Black, blue, purple, pink eye shadows from Dollface Cosmetics Vanity Palete
Snoe Eye Boop Precision Liquid Liner (perfect for creating the tips of the prints because the felt tip is thin)
Kokeshi Doll Liquid Liner (what I used to fill in the prints)

Revlon ColorStay liquid foundation in Golden Beige
Maybelline Clear Smooth Shine-Free Face Powder in Honey
Contouring Powder and Peach blush from Dollface Cosmetics Vanity Palette
Satin beige eye shadow from NYX Nude On Nude Palette for highlight

Ever Bilena Precision Blender in black
Ever Bilena single eye shadow in Cleo

NYX Nude On Nude Palette
Dollface Cosmetics Vanity Palette
Snoe Eye Boop Precision liquid liner
Maybelline Crayon Liner in black
Tony Moly Maxi Volume Force mascara No. 02

In2It Moisture Intense Lipstick in Pink Alarm
L.A. Colors lipstick in Amethyst on the edges for a subtle ombré effect


I hope you don't mind if I flooded this post with photos. That's the least I can do since I don't have a tutorial for this one. I can make another one but I think the look wouldn't be as good as this anymore. :(

I hope you liked this creative Halloween look. If you want me to do a tutorial for this please let me know in the comment box below.

What are you going to be this Halloween?

Stay awesome and accomplish your mission! :)

E-Session: Jerson and Karen + Michael and Dianne


It's a double wedding!

These two couples are my churchmates. Karen and Dianne were actually my choirmates when we were still members of our religion's choir. They got married last October 17 and yes, it was a double wedding! I was really happy when I found out about their double wedding because first of all, I'm so happy for them! Second, it would be my first time to witness a double wedding and lastly, they asked me to be their HMUA! Of course, I felt so glad and honored. It's been over a year since I last saw them and I was really happy that they still thought of me to glam them up on their big day.

Anyway, I don't have yet the photos from their wedding to share with you guys. For now, take a look at their awesome photos during their pre-nuptial shoot. These photos were just taken with my camera so these are just BTS photos but I hope you'll enjoy browsing the photos! :)

Ooh by the way, Karen and Dianne are sisters. Karen is older. ;-)

Meet Dianne! Here's her before and after photos.

Meet Karen! Here's her before and after photos.

Meet the GROOMS!

Bro. Jerson and Bro. Michael :)

The next photos were taken at Karen and Dianne's eldest sister's house in Malabag, Silang, Cavite. The house is big, super classy and beautiful! They shot the first part of the E-Session there.

Here is Bro. Michael and Dianne camwhoring while Bro. Jerson and Karen were being photographed! Hahaha!

Karen and Dianne loved their looks so much! They stole my camera while I was retouching the makeups of their grooms and took quite a lot of photos of themselves! Hahaha!

Aww, look at my beautiful girls! :)

Checking the shots! :)

After the first part, we hurriedly transferred to another location which is a very beautiful resort called Balite, Falls at Amadeo, Cavite. We were really in a hurry because it was already 4:30pm that time and the sun would set any time soon. Natural lighting is still the best!

Look how beautiful and green the place is! It was my second time in this place. The first time I went there, we did a photo shoot for a photography workshop.

First up, Bro. Jerson and Karen! :) I love seeing them together! They're super sweet and Bro. Jerson is like really smitten to Karen! Awwwwww!

BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL SHOTS!!! Now, take a look at Bro. Michael and Dianne's photos. This couple really makes me laugh, they're sooo cute! Unlike Bro. Jerson and Karen, these two are like cat and mouse but in a very cute and adorable way. Hahaha! :)

It was really fun seeing two couples for an E-Session because double weddings are actually unusual. I was really excited for their wedding!

I hope you liked their makeup looks and I hope you enjoyed looking at the photos. Please wait for their photos during their big, big, day! :)

Stay awesome and accomplish your mission! :)
