September Lovin' : 500 Pesos Makeup Challenge

WARNING: picture heavy post


As most of you know, Micmic's Corner, From Nails to Makeup and yours truly are having this super fun collaboration this month. [ click HERE to know more }
We are now on our 2nd makeup "challenge". And we chose to do the  
500 Pesos Makeup Challenge. 
Last week, our collaboration challenge was Disney Inspired Makeup look. I chose to recreate Princess Ariel of The Little Mermaid's look.[ Ariel Inspired Makeup Look ]

 The challenge is to create a whole look using makeup products that won't exceed your  Php 500.00 budget. It is quite similar with the $20 Makeup Challenge but here, you can use your own tools, like brushes, unlike the latter. 

So, here are the products I used. 

Kokuryu Summer Cake in Sunset Tan - - - Php 99.00
Careline Oil Control Face Powder refill in Tan - - - Php 55.00
Careline Oil Control Blusher in Morena Star - - - Php 80.00
Nichido Makeup Collection - -  - Php 100.00
Ever Bilena Color Pencil in Black - - - Php 88.00 
Excel Paris Lip Cream in 508 - - - Php 50.00
      TOTAL:  Php 472.00

Yey for not exceeding the budget!  
And now for the looks. YES, looks because I did a Day- Night Makeup Look. :) 

Day Look. 

I used all the products that I mentioned. BUT I didn't contour my face that much. I just pat on a little bit of the blush/bronzer because I want it to look fresh and subtle. 

I mixed the EB Color Pencil with a little bit of the blusher to use on my brows. 
[ I mixed it at the back of my hand ]

For the blush, I use a little bit of the lighter blush from this Nichido Palette. 

For the eyes, I dabbed on a little bit of the eyeshadow 1 all over my lids. And lined my eyes with the EB Color Pencil. 

The lips, I put on a little bit of lip cream on my finger and dabbed it on to my lips. 

 Night Look. 

The night look is basically the same makeup I did for the Day time. 
I just contoured my face a little bit more. And packed on the lip cream for a bolder and louder lips. Perfect for night outs!

For the eyes, I applied the eyeshadow 2 on the outer 2/3 of my lids and crease area. 
I also retouched the eye liner a little bit. Curled my lashes, and I am good to go! 

 If you guys noticed, the foundation and powder are really light for my skintone. It really is. But those shades are already the darkest. So, it really didn't match my skin that well. 
Yes, I had a hard time blending and using the Kokuryu foundation that's why you can see that it is not blended that well. 
I also skipped on the mascara, believe it or not. Those are my natural lashes. I am pretty blessed with that. :) 

This was a fun, but at the same time really challenging. I was willing to sacrifice all the other makeup for a good foundation because that is what I need as of the moment. COVERAGE! But it won't be that challenging anymore if I skipped out on the other products right?! :) 

A little camwhoring. :P 

OF COURSE! My pacute/masakit ang ulo pose. :P

I hope you guys enjoyed that! I know I did! :) 
Check out the magnificent work of my 2 lovely "collaborators." :P
