Sleek Makeup Haul September 2012

Truly, a girl can never have enough makeup. Makeup shopping would never end. Here's another Sleek Makeup Haul for the nth time.

And here are the things I got from all the way from UK to Philly. I just love Sleek make up products. maybe there'll come a time I am going to complete a collection of it.

Starting my Photography Journey

The art of photography

As a makeup artist, I have been working with models and photographers. Working behind the scenes is a fantastic job and feels great when the results have come out. Being in the glamour industry, I wanted to do more aside from makeup. Other things that I know I would enjoy doing. So, additional to maquillagistry, I sometimes create and designs props and accessories, and also costumes and gowns. Working with photographers most of the time, I now want to be one of them. 

High Mountain Makeup Gig

Okay, so, I would like to give a brief story behind these Cordilleran beauties. Our photography group La Trinidad Shutterbugs came up with a hiking event at Mt. Jumbo, Tawang, La Trinidad, Benguet. Last September 8, Saturday, we gathered at our town's municipal hall at 3:30 am and departed at 4am. (Yeah that early and it was still dark.) We started to walk around 4:30am and arrived at the top quarter past 5am. We had to be this early to catch the sunrise. And so yeah. We took sunrise photos, our native Cordilleran beauty theme and some behind the scenes apparently.

It was so windy and the sun was very bright. Some of our companions were already taking their own shots while I dolled up the models. I had no decent makeup BTS so just carefully look at me at the background of these photos. Haha!

MUA Lipstick

MUA Makeup Academy £1 Lip Gloss in Shade 1 and 3

Makeup Academy says:  With four gorgeous shades and one clear lip gloss to choose from, how will you pick which shade is right for you? MUA's Lip Gloss is just £1, so even buying all five wont break the bank! They're perfect for a swish of colour without the full pigmentation of a Lipstick if you're not sure about what colour to wear. They're a high gloss finish with sparkly glitter inside and they bring a luscious look to your lips! They're moisturising and soft, so no need to worry if it's winter or summer! Your MUA Lip Gloss will be your new best friend. Aww.
MUA Lip Gloss is Shade 3.

Has a smooth sponge tip applicator.

A fresh swatch on my hand. It appears as a thick hot pink in the it's tube but the swatch becomes a faint pink color.

Shade No. 1. It's  a clear gloss with a gold sheen beneath it.

Look at how gorgeous the swatch is. Sort of a clear milky shade with very tiny specks of gold.
1. Smell so yummylicious! I love the smell. It is like …

Makeup Academy New Nail Constellation 3D Nail Art

I am excited for makeup academy's new product NAIL CONSTELLATION! It is a new trend in nail art which is 3 dimensional. I have first heard of Ciate's Caviar Manicure which was really intriguing. However, the price was a downer. £18.00 for me is ridiculous for a nail set which would only chip away in a few days. But, GOOD NEWS! MUA has now revealed their new product which I am excited about. (I know said that twice now.) They will be available online and at Superdrugs (in the UK) on September 26.

Human Nature, Marionnaud, Ever Bilena Haul

So, I've been to the city malls again last weekend. I had a prewedding/trial makeup last Saturday and decided to window shop which ended haul shopping. 

Organic consumable products from food supplements to cosmetics are becoming well known and I have been hearing and reading a lot of good things about Human Natureproducts which claims they are 100% chemical free. Natural and organic products are obviously waaaay better then artificial and chemical ones. As a person starting to get OC and oh so naturalistic (about the environment, health and everything), I got a set of organic skin care products from Human Nature.

And along with it, I got some items I miss in my kit, a marionnaud brow brush and my all time favourite  EverBilena single blush in Amethyst.
