1-Brand Makeup Tutorial: Fashion 21 Cosmetics - "Rebel Girl"

It's been almost two months (or already two months) since I completed my Fashion 21 Cosmetics stash for my 1-brand makeup tutorial but it was just a few days ago that I filmed it. I just want to make sure that the products that I'd be using are worth sharing to you guys. I already have Fashion 21 products such as their powders, eyeshadows and their Double Up Mascara (which I absolutely love) and they all impressed me --- that's why Fashion 21 is my favorite local brand of cosmetics here in the Philippines. Last May, I bought their stick concealer, eyeliner, blush, and lipstick so that I can do a tutorial using only Fashion 21 Cosmetics.

After road testing the products and not finding any huge problem about using them, I decided to push through with the tutorial. I've been planning for this for months and a lot of makeup looks and themes came to mind since I have their Color Set (eyeshadow palette) which contains tons of colors! So my mind is going insane! The first theme that I came up with was Mafia Lady but I realized I've been using a lot of browns and neutrals in my previous videos so I decided to go for something wherein I can use different colors! I thought of the theme Rebel Girl and this is what I came up with:

Purple eyeshadow paired with red lip color just looks so beautiful for me. A couple of years ago, I saw this photo in Google. It's an image of a punk / rebellious kind of girl and she has this purple smokey eyes paired with wine red lip color and that image stuck in my head ever since! In this look, I also used Michelle Phan as my inspiration. She likes doing winged-out eyeshadows and that's what I did in this look!

Oh, and don't you think the gray lenses gave an extra oomph on the eye makeup? Fab Beau Lusst sent me these lenses and it was right on time and I was so glad that they sent me a gray pair since me and my sister think that gray eyes make any eye makeup look mesmerizing and more attractive. It was my first time though to do a makeup tutorial with lenses on so I was really happy and excited! Haha!

Here's the video tutorial:

Out of all the Fashion 21 products that I used in the tutorial, my favorites are the Loose Powder, Two Way Cake with Milk Moisturizers, Perfect Stick with Tea Tree Oil, Double Up Mascara, Defining Eyeliner, and of course, Roll N' Dazzle in Pink Diamond (okay, almost everything)! I think those products are really worth raving for because they are so affordable yet have good quality. The Color Set is great, too but some are not that pigmented. Same with the Single Blush-On, too - not really pigmented and just... eh, okay! The Dipliner is also just okay for me. It's actually a little sticky so I'm not really a fan of it. And I'm not crazy about the Red Romance lipstick since it bleeds. I love the color Heartthrob, though! If you want me to review any of the Fashion 21 product that I haven't reviewed yet, please let me know. :)
