I’m gonna make this short and sweet — that is because when it comes to blogging about make-up, I have very minimal skillz. You see, I don’t really put make-up. I’m one of those people who thinks baby powder and lip balm will do when going out.. parang teenager lang..hahaha.
During my 20’s, I learned to put on real face powder and cheek tint and later on BB Creams (nung ma-uso) but I didn’t think I’d blog about it because I don’t like taking before and after photos…
Now that it’s easier to take before and after photos because of selfies, I’m still hesitant because I don’t know how to take selfies..hahaha.. I am still practicing how to take good selfies without nginig. My selfies are always blurred because my hands always move.
Because make-up is something I’m not really interested in, it took a backseat when I became a mom and gave birth to my first born. There was a powder and cheek tint moment again after that and then the no make-up look after giving birth to my second child.
Then something snapped in me these past few months… I want to learn how to put good make-up. I also want to learn how to put lipstick.. Yes, this year ko lang na-appreciate ang lipstick!
I guess I’m a late bloomer.
Anyhoo, I bought this Artdeco Powder Foundation with SPF 30 at Beauty Bar earlier this year. This powder foundation can be applied wet or dry. I always use it dry and it provides a matte finish.
It’s also suitable for normal, oily and combination skin.
What I love about it is that it really lasts for a while and you don’t need to re-apply. And it has SPF 30 which protects your skin from harmful radiation, preventing light-induced skin aging and cell damage.
Since I am already at the Beauty Bar, I also bought K-Palette Real Lasting Eye Pencil in Super Black and K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow.
I love black eyeliners because I think it brings out my eyes. As for the Eyebrow, I don’t know how to use an eyebrow pencil and this eyebrow brush makes it easier for me to try and learn how.
I’ve been using them for a couple of months now. Both lasts for 24hours and I love using them.
No. This post didn’t turn out short and sweet..LOL!

I am happy you found these products that would help you learn how to put on make up. I am not much of a make up person too, so usually, I buy stuff because it caught my fancy but ended up giving them to my daughter because I don’t know how to use them! Haha. I’m just a face powder and lipstick kind of girl.

It’s nice that you found reliable make-up to get you started. Make-up is great, it makes you feel more confident. I am a sucker for a good matte lipstick!

I don’t wear powder foundation since I’ve dry-combination skin type. It good to hear that you like the foundation and other products you started using. Welcome to beauty world, my friend!

I really like that the powder has SPF. It is so important to protect our skin from the sun, and when it is already in the make up it means one less thing I have to put on in the morning.

I would really like to try this palette. I think my teen daughter would like it even more so.

No matter how much or how little makeup you wear, it’s important to find brands you love. If they work well for you it makes it much easier to use.
