Miss Universe will be crowned tonight (that’ll be today , this morning according to Philippine time). Having to wait for the coronation ( as if I’m one of the contestants, Ha! Ha!) The Miss Universe Official Website became one of the frequently visited sites this week on my browser. Clicking all the “Behind the Scenes” videos, I watched this one intently.
Miss Universe 2011 Official Make Up line–Kryolan
What gets my attention was, what Ms. US Virgin Islands Alexandrya Evans said about the Official Make-Up line that the Miss U 2011 is using.Its KRYOLAN The Professional Make-Up .She said, It doesn’t make her skin feel heavy , It doesn’t make her feel like she has too much make-up on. That is the quality I always look for in a make-up. I don’t want to make my skin feel like I have too much make-up on. I have heard and read of KRYOLAN Make-up a lot of times but I haven’t tried any of their products yet. It says , The Professional Make-Up , I am not a pro and could be the reason I don’t have one. Ha! Ha!
I love make-up. I love colors and I love playing with the vivid and lively shades , though I always have basic colors as prime choice just to be safe. I may not have everything a woman should have for a make-up , it is mainly because with the kind of lifestyle I got, I won’t be needing most of it anyway. Nevertheless , it doesn’t make me less loving the world of make-up. Every time I read magazines , I may be able to skip the pages of fashion clothes , designs , runway updates , accessories or shoes , but I will always take time to read make-up and cosmetics.
These are mostly the products I often times run out of with. Which means , these are the products for my day to day use.
Celeteque Gentle Exfoliating Facial Wash with Celeteque Water based Moisturizer
or , I use…. Kojic Acid Soap !(a-must have every shower for me and my friend Tarhata)
The following just works fine with me , so I just keep switching from one to another depending on whatever I wish to use for the day.
The Mary Kay Liquid Foundation which was introduced to me by a good friend Dra. Melba Jane Leal some few years ago.
or sometimes The Mary Kay Liquid Foundation with moisturizer from my favorite dealer Ms. Olive Joy Campos together with the Melacep Foundation primer and Mary Kay Timewise Age-fighting Lip Primer. Colors I like most would play around any of the following:
Clinique Blended Loose face Powder , Clinique Blush and Bronze Duo and Clinique Surge and Rum Eye Shadow Set.
Revlon 12-hour Color Stay Eye Shadow and Revlon Beyond Natural Blush and Bronze. Final touches will be Clinique Think Bronze Lipstick(left ) or Clinique’s Different Lipstick in Ripe Raisin Shade
Ever Bilena’s Matte Lipstick in shades of Mauvey or my daily fave Mirrored Mocha(above) . Avon’s Glimmersticks Eyeliner in either black , dark grey or brown.(right)
Plus Max Faxtor’s Clear Mascara.
The colors we have on everyday can tell us who we are. Just right and not too much is the name of the game. Basic and mostly nude colors are my daily favorite. Whenever the occasion calls for it I can go bolder and brighter . Some believe it’s in the strokes, or the kind of brushes used. Some believe it is the brand of the cosmetics and for some, the make-up artist.
For always-on-the-go women (myself included) , we don’t have artists. So we settle for what makes us feel good and confident. As long as the product is safe , comfortable to use and make us feel the way we want to feel , then you know you have the best make-up product in you.
What’s your day to day color?
