Spring Look Contest

Why yes, another one!! I decided I would try my hand at all the contests I could since mostly this is the only way (and/or best way) for me to practice my skills. I don't wear makeup out just yet and I doubt I'd be able to wear the crazy looks I do out in public, so...contest contest!

This look in particular, for me, is actually pretty wearable. I'd wear it in public if I had the chance, or during a special occasion. It's actually quite surprising, in a pleasant way, to realize that pink looks good on me too. I used to think that red is the only lipcolor that looks okay on me and peach tones are the only good blushes on my cheeks. I don't know, what do you think about the look I did? Does the pink look okay on me?

Moving on, this spring look is for Chyix2's contest. I had fun with this cause I played around with colors I never would have gotten to use otherwise (I'm all for the neons/brighter colors!).

This is step by step so there will be quite a bit of pictures...but I resized them and made them smaller! :) Next time I'll be sure to make them even smaller in file size.

What I used: 
FACE: The Face Shop makeup primer in green, Ellana intense coverage foundation in Hazelnut Latte, Ellana finishing powder in espresso con panna, Ellana mineral concealer in smile
CHEEKS: Aziza blush/highlighter duo, PAC e/s in brown for contour
LIPS: Aziza lipstick (shade got erased), ELF lipgloss on top
EYES: Art Deco Eyeshadow Base, Elianto single shimmer e/s in ivory, PAC palette, Coastal Scents 88 palette, VOV eyeshadow in yellow, Elianto stay-on eyeliner, Aido eye putti + No brand falsies


1) Apply the Elianto Shimmer e/s in Ivory wet over both lids. This will serve as base to make the colors pop better.

2) Apply yellow (I used PAC + VOV) in the inner corners of the eyes

3) Apply pink in the middle part of the eye lids

4) Take a purple and blend it into the outer V and crease. Also, take a darker shade to emphasize the crease even more. Blend blend blend!

5) Get some green and put it under your eye below the waterline

6) Line eyes - Sorry my eyes are red, still fighting off a cold!

7) Apply light shimmer yellow from 88 palette to highlight under the brow

8) Mascara

9) Contour and blush

10) Fill in brows

11) Lipstick + lipgloss!

Here is what we have so far:

12) Apply falsies! For this I used green/blue/purple falsies but it's not so visible.

FINISHED LOOK




CLOSE UP OF THE E/S

Pop Champagne said...

I love the colors you used for this post. They are all so spring colors! And you're great at make up :D

Lalaxloca said...

thats super cute, you could so wear this out!!

Crissy said...

you look great in pink :D You pull it off! I'm afraid to do lighter colors haha

Catherine said...

Wow, Chrissy, you're getting so good so fast! I love these colors and especially the pop that the pink gives this look!

Also, really glad to hear that the deep conditioning treatment worked out for you. :D Have you tried looking for glycerin at a regular drugstore? It's usually w/ band aids and aloe, I think.

& yea, basically anything can crease, and grainy products tend to crease more. I have problems w/ creasing in particular though since my lids are REALLY oily. I wear UDPP and MAC Painterly on my lids daily, otherwise my shadow would last about 1hr on my eyes.... LOL. I applied Mutiny very lightly today (I think it's supposed to be one of the better textured pigments too) and it still looks great right now (YAY), so I think the trick is to use less. Yesterday I used a lot more w/ water & glycerin and it was a huge mess.

Love the colors! Thanks for visiting my blog btw! I'll visit yours too because I am not very artistic when it comes to applying makeup!

iambeautiful20 said...

awwwwww...very pretty :) i like it a lot!

Ces said...

Very colorful! Hahaha fun.

I've been thinking of buying ELF lipgloss, but I'm not sure what to get. Hahaha. How is it? What shade/s do you have? Haha.

Ces said...

OH!!! Another question. Where do buy Aziza stuff?? My mom has some stuff and they are awesome but she doesn't remember where they're from. Haha.

Chrissy said...

I only have one shade and nabura na so I can't tell you what it is. It's really good though, not sticky, feels good on the lips, stays decently. In any case it's only 130PHP so not too big a waste. :)

My Aziza stuff is from the US, but I saw some at circle c in the 'tiangges' there... but it's hard to locate really.
