A Classic feel with Niña and Naomie

About a week ago I got the chance to do hair and makeup for my close friend
 Niña and her sister Naomie for a shoot.
I was super excited to do this and I had so much fun,
we talked a lot and made "cheka" during the process so it didn't feel like work at all.
They are gorgeous girls to begin with so galming them up was not difficult.
They wanted a classic look for this shoot and I was more than happy to create
my interpretation of a classic look.

Here are some photos

It was a wonderful experience and I learned so much.
I'm looking forward for more shoots and experience like this..

I hope you like it as much as I do :)
With much love,

Eyeliner Faves

I have always been deeply in love with the winged liner look, it looks timeless and gives your eyes a more mesmerizing factor. I have used up about a whole bottle of makeup remover because I really wanted to learn how to put eyeliner with out it floating over my eyelashes, and making that crisp wing was not easy..
Then after countless practicing my shaky hands finally got the hang of it.

I have also used several liners through out the years, others gave a stinging effect on the eyes which was a big NO NO for me. Right now i have been enjoying using the Face Shop FACE it Styling liner and SanSan Waterproof  Eyeliner Pen.
Face Shop FACE it Styling liner (a little over Php 500)
SanSan Waterproof  Eyeliner Pen (Php 85.00) 

As you can see they have a huge price difference, but both perform absolutely wonderful!

Now compare the performance
Face Shop FACE it Styling liner

 SanSan Waterproof  Eyeliner Pen

For me they are both really good, but the Face Shop one is pricier. They both last a good amount of time I don't touch up my eyeliner throughout the day. 
If you would like to try a pricier liner I do suggest the  Face Shop FACE it Styling liner, but if you dont like spending a lot of money like me do try the  SanSan Waterproof  Eyeliner Pen.
  I hope this has helped :)

With much love,

Oh So Orange

I got this new polish from Tony Moly,
Its an Orange shade (NE02)
but i painted on some animal print which reminds me of 
TIGGER!! 

I love this design,
I'll do my absolute best to maintain this design for 
a week or more :)
I just put two coats for the orange polish and 
drew some lines to resemble an animal print.
I hope you like the design
With much love,

My recent nail art

I've been playing with my nails like there's no tomorrow,
instead of doing a post of each nail design I'm just gonna
collect them all in this post.
These designs are super easy and simple, but looks cute too :)

Here we go..
Pink base color with silver stripes.

Beige base color with black and silver stripes
and pink dots

pink base with silver stripes on the tips
outlined with back polish.


Again its super simple and easy to do..
It makes me very happy seeing my work on the tips
of my fingers. And it encourages me too keep them
looking nice all the time.
I hope I gave some ideas for your nail design.

With much love,
Lahlab
