Last January, my in-laws got married again to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary. I booked a good makeup artist named Imee Sitchon. This is the 2nd time I booked her for an event. My first look is made to attend a wedding where my son is the coin bearer.
The 2nd look was the most special one because I wore a Michael Leyva gown.
On this look, Imee used my own lipsticks from Jeffree Star Cosmetics.
These are the shades named Baby Daddy (above) and Skin Tight (below). Of course they both have the same formula. It doesn’t have any scent and surprisingly long lasting but ultimately light and non-drying so it is a win-win matte liquid lipstick for me.
Baby Daddy is a soft-taupe nude so Imee used it to contour and line my lips, making it look full and thick.
Skin Tight, on the other hand, is a pale pink nude shade. The nudest of all pink nudes you can ever imagine. Like my dead lips, only vibrant. So with this kind of trick, you can instantly have Jay-Z lips for minimal effort and price.
After 2 hours of taking photos at the hotel and doing a lot of stuff before leaving, I had to touch up after Imee left. To still achieve a healthy glow, I used my HudaBeauty 3D Highlighter Palette in Pink Sands. I love Pink Sands because it has a cheek highlighter/blush on perfect to flush those cheeks.
I love that the packaging is sturdy for a makeup housed in a cardboard palette. It has 1 cream highlighter and 3 in powdered form. I love that the product is fool-proof and comes with elaborated instructions for everyone to understand. I’m a huge fan of Huda’s marketing and PR techniques. The packaging looks expensive with Huda’s “glowing photo” that is perfect to use for this product. I love everything about it!
The cream highlighter can be used as a makeup base, like a primer for the highlighters. I find it difficult and not a necessity for it doesn’t really build or blend with the powdered highlighters well. It even moves! It doesn’t build well with the foundation either. I believe the powdered highlighters can stand alone as much as the cream can glow/strobe on its own for a dewy effect.
I love how subtle the glow is, but I’m also kinda concerned on why it doesn’t last long compared with the other highlighters I have from Kat Von D Beauty or Anastasia Beverly Hills (with or without the cream). Good thing it doesn’t cake nor crack. On this look I also did the flushing technique (as instructed) and wore the Ibiza as a blush-on/highlighter. Ah-mazing!
Nude lips are perfect to complement the golden glow. You just have to get the right products and perfect makeup combination that will help you get through the whole day. To see more of my makeup looks, follow me on IG and like my page on Facebook.
