Philippine Independence Day Makeup Tutorial

Happy Independence Day, Philippines!

Being born and raised in the Philippines, I was taught that June 12 isn't supposed to be regarded as a national event alone, but a significant date to be celebrated and remembered for this day we got our freedom from the conquerors and we stood as one, free country. 

As a Filipina/ Pinay Makeup Enthusiast one way to commemorate this event is to create a simple makeup look that will show my honor and respect to our Philippine Flag. And so, I made this look that has a hue of brown/ natural colors on the lids as to signify as the color of our skins and a bright pop of blue, red and yellow on the lower lash line for the colors of the flag. I even placed a Philippine Flag Lip Tattoo from Fab Beau Luust on my lips to make it look more fancy!

Manila Luzon Inspired Makeup Look (Drag Queen)
If I were to ask about a Drag Queen, I would most likely think of "Manila Luzon". Aside from the fact that Manila is the capital of the Philippines and Luzon being part of the three island groups or major divisions here in our country, I always heard of this celebrity as the one who possess the boldest cat- eye makeup, perfect slender body and yes I admit, fierce.

Being involved in the beauty industry for months now, I have seen numerous of inspired drag makeup looks from Google Images and YouTube makeup tutorials. I may say that they did it really well and put some effort in achieving the perfectly shaped, thin and high arched eyebrows, as well as the face contour and highlights. 

Looking back on the days that learning how to perfectly line my eyes with a liquid eyeliner seems to be a great achievement for me, I never thought that there are too-good-to-be-true existing makeup looks that I will be testing and trying my best to replicate. Although I can say that I am a beginner and skipped a lot of highlights, concealing and eyebrow definition, I still managed to understand and get the idea of this whole drag makeup- it's all about nose contouring, cut-crease and dark, dramatic extended eyes, bright inner eyelid area and the best, bold lips. Next fun fact about it? strut the drag stuff and let your beauty arise from the crowd. 

I may not be as fierce, flawless and gorgeous as Manila Luzon, but I tried my very best to do her eye makeup. Please do check out my YouTube video below:

Mascara Trick: Eyeliner Effect

Eye lids are essential to keep our precious eyes from dusts, small particles and keeps our eyes hydrated and lubricated through the tears it spreads. Along with it's natural purpose, we can also consider the aesthetic function of it as something that frames the eyes, gives definition to one's eye shape and brings out individuality and uniqueness. 

With the modern age like today, using products such as liquid eyeliners, pencil eyeliners and for some, tattoos are so beneficial and is most likely a necessity to each makeup enthusiast's daily routine. Although it is limited to some who happened to have allergies with such products or just born with a very sensitive skin. 

I can consider myself as one of the many who loves lining their eyes be it, winging it out with an eyeliner, tight lining and everything that has a line in it. But somehow, I find it so uncomfortable considering my sweaty skin and oily pores. But just as much as I love it, I cannot say NO to the thing that I love way more than that and it is applying mascara. Mascara application for me is not only for the eye lashes, but also for the water line and eye lids. Through the different techniques I tried, I can certainly and undoubtedly say that it works like a charm and is truly two-in-one. But HOW?

Take a look at the picture of my eye above. (Please excuse le pimple :D) 

The only thing I applied to my eye was just mascara. No tight lining, no eye liners and everything. It looked defined, just as how one would apply eyeliner on the lids to create a perfect definition. This is a proof that everything can be achieved in a just a simple step. Imagine, no more eyeliners, cotton buds if ever you made a mistake or worst, repeating the whole lining process all over again. 

The trick is as simple as 1, 2, 3. 
(1) Start applying mascara on the roots up to the mid-part of the lashes to create an illusion of lined eyes. Just do the shake-y wand effect or just brush the product side-to-side or to be more exact, the left-right motion. :)

(2) With a light hand, apply mascara starting from the mid-part up to the tip of the lashes to add length.

(3) Comb out your eyelashes to separate and even out the applied product.

I created a video on how I did it. You can watch it here:

After the three easy steps, you are now ready to hit the road with your eyelashes done + simply defined eyelids. Let's talk about, less hassle, lesser time to get ready and lighter makeup bag. 

I therefore conclude that eyeliners are for those who want extra- definition or drama to one's eyes.
