Sexy, Sultry & Smokey a.k.a. The Makeup of Mica in FemaleNetwork

For those of you who missed the workshop, here's a step-by-step guide. I revised the wordings to make it more fun. Pero kung gusto mo ng seryusnezzz, dito ka:

STEP 1: Cleanse, tone and moisturise. Cleanse, tone and moisturise. Cleanse, tone and moisturise. MAKE IT A HABIT! Rinse and repeat! Pauulit-ulit lang sinasabi???

STEP 2: Use a primer (face & eyes) to smoothen the surface of your skin. Pwede rin pantapal ng pores. Very aspalto lang.

STEP 3: Make your skin look flawless! Magtapal ng funda and blend like crazy! Layer on depending on the coverage you need. Neutralize under eye darkness with a warm-toned concealer and set everything with powder.

STEP 4: Para hindi putla-putlaan school of acting, smile and using uber light strokes, apply blush on the apples of your cheeks.

STEP 5: (Notice that each step, paganda lang ng paganda? This was a step by step technique I learned from a foreign makeup artist) Add more color by choosing a lipstick that's two shades darker than your lip tone.

STEP 6: Fill in the blanks, este...brows! Make sure to create the correct arch and help frame your face better.

STEP 6: Buhay ka na hanggang STEP 5 but the night is young and so are we...kaya halina at mag-smokey! First, apply a dark cream shadow as base. Then pat on a dark eyeshadow shade over it. I actually used a black liner over the powder to intensify it more. Then add highlights under the brow to create more contrast.

STEP 7: Curl your lashes and magalit sa mascara! Mga 10 coats. Ganyan.
