Update + FOTN/EOTN

Hi guys! I know I promised you a falsies post but I still can't put mine properly haha I think I've tried putting them on at least 5x already but it look so I'll just be posting my first FOTN since my skin asthma attack. This is taken during my Angkong's 72nd birthday last April 24 at Chinatown Restaurant :)

Skin Update: This is my 2nd day using Skin 79 BB cream since the itchies went away..I'm sure that I have no pimples 2 days ago..but now I have small ones on my whole face! I really am not sure if this is because of Skin 79 or it is just because I have very sensitive skin now and I react with anything I put on my face..I don't know..I'll keep on testing until I reach a conclusion..I don't want to let go of my Skin 79 BB cream yet hehe :)

Here's a shot with my Angkong. I think he looks so happy coz he's with his family again after 3 months of being away. You know, every birthday of his doubles as a family reunion, and since he is based in Mindanao and wents home here in Manila every 3 months for 2 weeks only, we really miss each other. And I'm happy that he got a good news as a birthday gift (my Mamang who was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast Cancer last 2 months ago but she doesn't need chemotherapy coz it is benign and is responding well with oral treatments) so he's happy about that :)

I used the following products:

- Skin 79 Triple Function BB Cream (hot pink)
- Dayna's Mineral Foundation in G2
- Ellana Minerals Sheer Velvet powder
- MAC Blot powder in Medium
- Dayna's Mineral Glow in Violet Vesper

With my baby sister Mei..I'm really a proud Ate (elder sister) haha :)

- Mary Kay Signature Concealer in Ivory topped with Ellana Concealer in Awake
- MAC Paintpot in Painterly
- Coastal Scents 88 e/s matte palette

*highlight - upper right, 2nd from top (bone color)
*lid wash - left side, 3rd row from the left, 5th down (red color)
*crease - lower left, 2nd row from the left, 3rd up from bottom (bronze color)

- MakeUp Forever Star Powder in 926 (White gold)
- MAC pigment in Blue Brown
- Estee Lauder High definition mascara in Black

Here's a shot of me after 5 hours without blotting..I still look good right? not that oily even after I ate a lot of oily foods hehe..this is the reason why I love my BB cream and MMU..keeps me looking fresh..My aunts all commented I look blooming the whole night :)

Love your makeup sis! so glowy!!! Sis! you should stop using ANY products for now..since your skin is reacting, you can always revisit Skin79 after..there's a time kc your skin is super sensitive so whatever you put, your skin will react to it!!

Your angkong looks so cute and friendly!!! :) Your sister is pretty Just like ATE :)

^ thanx Nikki! I guess you're right..I'll stop is so hard to not put any powder or something on my face coz I tend to be "greasy" after a few hours haha..but I'll try..thanx for the advise :)

Ida said...

you look great, no sign of any sort of skin irritation. and the makeup does indeed make you look blooming! the eye makeup is really pretty and subtle i want to try a similar shade soon :)

that's great about your grandparents. your sister is cute too and was super accommodating each time i ordered ellana from her :)

btw thanks for tagging me!

Chrissy said...

I do agree, the makeup makes you look so pretty, and so very blooming! I love the neutral look. :)

Crystal said...

gale, i hope you figure out na what's causing your pimples. love the look! natural lang. btw, yung mac paintpot sample that you gave me, tuyo na :( i feel sad.

fuzkittie said...

You both are pretty! :D So cute. Your lil sister looks a bit like Jolin Tsai!

Crystal Gale said...

Ida- thank you! I really like my bb cream..I hope it is not the cause of my bumps so I can keep on using it try reds's fun to play with vibrant colors every now and then :)

My sis do love selling..she has the passion for it since she was 3! LOL thanx for buyinjg from her :)

Chrissy - Thank you! How I wish my skin look that great without anything haha :)

Crystal - Thanx sis! I also hope to know the cause soon..I'm letting my skin breathe now so I hope my bumps would go away na..hmm, I guess paintpots really do dry up fast..that's the reason why I want to try UDPP or TFSI next coz I'm sure they will not dry up that fast..have you tried heating the sample? that might work..

Fuz - thank you! really? hehe you made we want to check out Jolin Tsai to see if my lil sis really do look like her haha :)

Gale, blooming and i love the glow on your skin. ^_^

Crystal Gale said...

^ Hi Pammy! Thank you for the compliment :) The glow is because of the mineral glow powder I used by Dayna's Minerals :)
