Eyeshadow Types

A makeup newbie sometimes find it hard to buy an eyeshadow. Due to the simple reason that there are a lot of choices,and it can be confusing. There are various eyeshadow types to choose from,and if someone is just starting to wear an eyeshadow to make her look more defined and attractive,she has to know what particular eyeshadow type suits her.

I am going to site examples of different eyeshadow types here,wherein you can be guided accordingly before purchasing an eyeshadow. The information stated here can help to avoid wasting money in eyeshadow shopping.

Eyeshadow Types to consider:

1. The Matte finish Eyeshadow : This Eyeshadow type is, free of glitter and shimmer. It is dry in texture and it is always packed as a cake powder. It is best worn during daytime events, such as corporate events, Weddings, Photo shoots and Luncheon meetings. The matte finish eyeshadow, is best suited for women who are already in their golden years.

2. The Prism/Prismatic Eyeshadow: This eyeshadow type is my latest favorite because, It is  versatile. It is highly pigmented and yet not too loud when applied, therefore it can be worn during the day and night. It is packed as a cake powder but then it is cream or mousse like when applied on to the skin. It suits all skin types too.

3. The Eyeshadow Cream Pencil: This can be compared to the versatility of the prism eyeshadow and another quality of this eyeshadow is, it is handy.

4. Then the last but not the least among my recommendation is the Loose eyeshadow powder: Teenagers and young adults dig this eyeshadow type. Because it is shimmery and glittery too. This is best worn for a night out and parties.

The Brands Featured Here Are:

I. Matte Finish
Everbilena Eyeshadow Kit
Monaliza Series

II. The Prism Eye shadows
JE' Color
 Kiss Beauty and  Bellespa

III. The Eyeshadow Cream Pencil
JE' Color

IV. The Loose Eyeshadow Powder

Lavender and Black Soft Smokey Eye

I love it! when Ber months come. This is when people are already starting to have Christmas day countdown. One of the exciting part when Christmas is coming soon, is the new makeup trends for the happiest season of the year. Surely you ladies out there, are all excited to know what is the best makeup style to try now and until the Christmas season comes.

I've done this makeup style just today, when I went to church and had lunch with my hubby afterwards. I decided to put it up here because, I like to share  how I came up with this style to my blog visitors and friends. This look is not complicated at all in fact if you are into makeup for quite a while now, it is easy as ABC or 123!

Here are the steps on how to recreate the Lavender and Black Soft Smokey Eye:

1.Always remember to make your skin look fresh, clean and even by applying a good quality makeup base. I applied a creamy pressed powder,starting on the T-Zone and then blended it well, because no one likes to look like the corpse's bride right? :-) And then I applied it on the rest of my face down to the jawline and upper portion of my neck.

2.Now for the fun part which is also my favorite,whenever I put makeup on. The eyeshadow application. Using my pointed tip sponge applicator,I swiped and blended a luminous Lavender e/s from the roots of my upper eyelids till it reaches beneath my eyebrows. Now to make my eyes look dramatic,using the same sponge tip applicator, I patted a charcoal black powder e/s on the 3/4 outer corner of my eyes and then patted it with a powder puff to diffuse the sharpness of the black color to make it suitable for daytime too. Lastly to make it look sparkly I applied the luminous Lavender e/s on the inner corner of my lower lids and then lined the entire lower lids with the charcoal black e/s. I applied 2 thin coats of Black mascara due to it's thick texture.

3.I swiped a bright pink blush on the hollows of my cheeks and then highlighted it with a moist brightening powder ball in Gold Caviar.

4.To complete the look, I swiped a nude peach toned liquid lipstick. The liquid lipstick is thick and long lasting, that is why it looks dark on the photos.

The Tools for the Lavender and Black Soft Smokey Eye look are:
1. Fashion 21 pressed powder
2. Meis Eyeshadow professional makeup artist pallet
3. Bellespa Eyeshadow Pallet number 5
4. Aily(Gibilinay) Eyeshadow and Blush kit number 1 ( Not included on the photo)
5. Maybelline Magnum Mascara (Not included on the photo)
6. Kiss Beauty 24 hours Lip gloss with Vitamins C/E

The list of beauty tools written here, are just part of the information of my tutorial. You do not have to purchase the same products which I used here, to come up with this make up style. Do use the makeup which you already own.

Purple N' Blue Eye Makeup Look

I have a makeup pal,her name is Toni. She loves to wear colored eyeshadow and dark colored lipstick. Making her wear light makeup would be a complete torture. I admire her boldness when it comes to makeup application.She is not afraid to experiment new looks. And to add to that, she is also my makeup sponsor every now and then . I am certain that when I share this eye makeup look to her,she'll love it.

The makeup tools I used to come up with this look are as follows:

1. Aquamarine Blue, Deep Purple cake cream e/s and frosted white from Qianyu New Attraction 12 color Pallet.
2. Maybelline Magnum Mascara
3. Brownie Rose Blush shade from Monaliza series Professional Makeup. 
4. Aido # 6 mini lipstick

The Purple N' Blue eye makeup look is  not complicated to do.Here are the steps to re create this look:

After  applying makeup base, I applied the Aquamarine Blue from the inner corner of my upper lid up to the center. And then I followed it up with the Deep Purple from the outer corner up to the center,without overlapping the two colors. For highlight, I applied frosted white on my eye crease blending it up beneath my eyebrows.I lined my lower lash line with the same deep purple e/s using a slim tip brush. I finished the look with one generous coat of black volumizing mascara.

I complemented the Purple N' Gold eye makeup look with an earthy pink cheek color and a medium toned moisture purple lip color.

Wearing Purple N' Blue eyeshadow shouldn't scare off the minimalists, because it is also interesting to try
this kind of makeup look.

Makeup brands Made in China

 Make up made from mainland China, became popular in the Filipino bargain  malls in the late 90's. It was a former co- volunteer church worker, who introduced me to the makeup products which are made in China.I trust my co-volunteer's recommendation because she is the type of person who is not easily convinced,unless she tried it herself. Therefore I asked her where she bought the make up she showed me. And then  she was kind enough to give me the directions,where to buy it. When I reached the mall to buy the makeup made in China, I really had a field day! I bought lipsticks and eyeshadows. From that time on until now, whenever I go to bargain malls, specialty shops, beauty supply stores and beauty bazaars, I purchase a makeup product made in China. No matter I've heard negative reports about their products, I wasn't bothered since I found out myself, that their products are good and easy on the budget. The makeup products made in China are also available in different parts of the globe. Like Malaysia,Saudi Arabia and in some parts of Europe.

Gold and Coffee Brown Eye Makeup

One of the best look I've done yet is the Soft Gold and Coffee Brown Eye Makeup. It is not intense and yet it is not subtle. The look is suitable for everyone, especially to those who prefer the barely there eye makeup look. Here's how it was done...

First of you have to have a good makeup base to keep the colors intact. I used a two way cake powder in natural.
Secondly apply a yellow gold cream e/s with a round tip sponge applicator, from the lash line until the brow bone. Blend the e/s well to diffuse the brightness and make it look more natural.
Thirdly apply a coffee brown prism e/s from the lash line up to the eye crease and slightly extend above it.
On the inner corner of the lower lash line, apply the yellow gold cream e/s to brighten the eyes with a synthetic eye liner brush, finish the eye makeup look line the outer corner of the lower lash line with a matte black e/s

This eye makeup look is best paired with a coral blush and an apricot lip color.

I did not indicate the make up brands I used to do this look, because I am pretty sure those who would like to try this look, have their own preferred makeup brands.
