LOTD: MABUHAY Philippines!

As you may or may not know, I am half pinay – Filipino and I love my roots! Amazing food, beautiful people inside and out and I strive to learn more about that part of me every day. Today is the Philippines Independence Day and what better way to celebrate than with a flag inspired eye look.

Everytime I try to do a flag look I get reminded that most flags have the basic Red, White & Blue but I still wanted to do a beautiful look and with the Sun & 3 Stars on the corner of my eye.

/Idag är Filippinernas Independence Day och jag som är halv filipinsk ville göra en look inspirerad av flaggan.

My Beauty Personality * LOTD

For the first part of Beauty Masters (An internal Development Competition), we were to create a look that represented our personality… 

I felt that the looks I love to create are usually colorful and messy but my personality is very detail-oriented and precise. I love to be able to create looks that may be out of the norm so having a red toned and a blue toned eye is just fun and different and then switching my masaras to increase the effect.

/För första delen av Beauty Masters som är en internt tävling på jobbet så hade vi uppgiften att visa en look som representerar vem jag är. Detta är hur looken blev!

Lock-it Hdyrating Primer

A Competition, A FaceChart, A Recreation * Beauty Masters 2018

I was able to compete in an internal competition called Beauty Masters which is a development program for Sephora. I wanted to show you a little glimpse into the day and what my Face Chart look turned out to be.

Beauty Masters

Kat Von D Beauty sponsors Beauty Masters with Sephora this year and being an avid fan of the brand, what they stand for and of course Kat Von D herself, I could not pass up the idea of trying out. There are SOOO many talented artists this year so though my look was super simple, it was filled with details. Lines, dots and mess dots.

The second round (I will back-track to first round in a later post!) was all about educating in the brand and elements of Kat Von D and her 10 muses. Then we were to find inspiration on Instagram from specific accounts related to Kat Von D (EXTREMELY QUICK) then create a Face Chart from the Inspiration photos. Afterwards we had a little over an hour to recreate the Face Chart on our faces.

Inspiration

So. My inspiration photos are these ones that I found from a number of accounts including @thekatvond, @sstrazzere, @kelseyannaf, @ginaharrison, @adelemidred, and  @iamleah.

As you see, I get inspired by Asia, by color, by designs and by texture so I wanted to make sure to incorporate these elements but simply and delicately.

From: https://tsukuroi.exblog.jp/19093682/

Another inspiration when I see these photos from the Instagram accounts is 15th Century Japan in which they had an asethetic called “Wabi-Sabi” – the concept of seeing beauty in flaws as well as the art of “Kintsugi” – In which when pottery was broken, they repaired them with gold so it can continue on – and in my case I wanted to incorporate the color as my golden lining. There is beauty in all things imperfect and this simplicity is what I hoped my Face Chart and Face was able to show.

My Face Chart & Final Look

Unfortunately I did not take my professional camera with me but hopefully you got a good idea of how my look turned out! I could have definitely done more with my look but I am very happy with my look especially with the time limit we had and in connection to the inspiration I used. It is simple but it does say a lot about who I am and the love of seeing beauty in small details and love of simplicity but of course still with a splash of color for personality.

Oh and yes. I do have a wonderful farmers-tan from Florida as I wore t-shirts throughout the vacation… so dont mind the tanlines!

/Detta är min look för Beauty Masters som är i kollab med Kat Von D Beauty och Sephora. Jag är med och tävlar och ville visa min look till er! Den är inspirerad av Japansk 15th century konst och även några Kat Von D konton på Instagram.

My new Brow products from Kat Von D Beauty

YES! Finally. I saw these in the US while I was there and thought I would wait to buy them and though I got most of the items I wanted, there are still so many more left!

/JA! Äntligen. Jag såg dessa i USA när jag var där och tänkte att jag skulle vänta med att köpa dem och även om jag fick de produkterna jag ville främst ha så finns det fortfarande så många kvar!

Signature Brow Precision Pencil

The Precision Pencil (200kr) has a longer straight edge than most precision pencils. I bought two as I usually go between hair colors often so I bought Taupe and Light Brown.
/The Precision Pencil (200kr) har en längre, mer rak kant än de flesta pennor. Jag köpte två då jag brukar ha olika hårfärg så jag köpte Taupe och Light Brown.

One thing to think about is that it is a much harder pencil so it needs to be warmed up before applying but it does give a realistic look to the brow.
/En sak att tänka på är att det är en mycket hårdare penna, så det måste värmas upp innan det appliceras men det ger ett realistiskt utseende på brynen.

24h Super brow Pomade

The Super Brow Pomade (195 kr) one of the products I had on my must have list. It is a creamy brow product that is waterproof and comes in 16 shades!
/Super Brow Pomade (195kr) är en av de produkter jag hade på min must have lista. Det är en krämig bryn produkt som är vattentät och kommer i 16 nyanser!

Brow Brush #70 or #75

These brushes are super thin and easy to work with. The #75 Brush is quite unique with the divits which allow for better application.
/Dessa borstar är supertunna och lätta att arbeta med. Pensel # 75 är helt unikt med delarna som gör det möjligt att applicera produkten i brynen.

I am Divine… A Limited Kat Von D Palette that I just needed to get…

I am a palette junkie and all you who have followed me for awhile know that I just cannot resist a palette and my Kat Von D Beauty products! I recently purchased this one and finally have gotten around to playing with it.

/Jag är en palett junkie och ni som har följt mig  vet att jag kan inte motstå en palett och mina Kat Von D Beauty-produkter! Jag köpte denna nyligen och har äntligen kommit runt att leka lite mer med färgerna!

I Am Divine Packaging & Colors

The I am Divine Palette (ca. 330kr) is a pretty slim palette housing 8 shadows that are both matte and shimmer. They are on the blue-green and grey scale. I love the eyebrows on the mirror too!

/I am Divine Palette (ca. 330kr)  är en ganska tunn palett med 8 skuggor som är både matt och skimrande. Paletten är i den blågrön och grå skala. Det finns ett par bryn på spegeln också!

The palette is inspired by Divine which is one of Kat Von Ds Muses. I find that the colors are gorgeous but it may be necessary to combine this palette with other ones as there are many bold shades in this palette. I can definitely see many bright looks with this one!

/Paletten är inspirerad av Divine som är Kat Von Ds muse. Jag älskar nyanserna men det kan vara bra att kombinera denna palett med andra paletter då du kommer inte få så många neutrala looker. Jag kan se många starka looks med denna!

The Swatches

Without a primer and in daylight, these swatches are amazing. The Eyeshadows are creamy and super easy to apply with and without an eyeshadow brush.
/Utan primer och i dagsljus alla swatches ser fantastiska ut. Skuggorna är krämiga och lätt att applicera med borste.

What do you think of these kind of limited edition products? Would you be purchasing this one?

/Vad tycks om denna limited edition palett? Skulle du köpa den? Varför?

Crushing on Kat Von Ds Metal Crush Palette

This palette came out a while ago but I just have NOW purchased it and am getting around to talking about it!

/Den här paletten kom i butik längesen men jag har bara köpt nyligen och har äntligen fått tid att skriva om den!

The Metal Crush Palette (405kr) is one of the later releases from Kat Von D this year and it is unique for the brand as it houses 3 glittery highlighters.
/Metal Crush Palette (405kr) är en av de senare från Kat Von D och är unik för varumärket eftersom det rymmer 3 glittrande highlighters.

Gammaray, Helix & Roseshock

I have been an avid fan of Kat Von D Cosmetics and own pretty much every product but this one I was on the fence about since I was not really sure how to use the shades. I loved the Metal Crush eyeshadows (that are now discontinued, boohoo!!) so I decided that this palette would be great as toppers.
/Jag har varit en fan av Kat Von D Cosmetics och äger ganska många produkter från märket men jag var inte helt säker på hur man skulle använda nyanserna. Jag älskade Metal Crush ögonskuggor (som nu utgått, boohoo!!) så jag bestämde mig för att denna palett skulle vara bra som toppers.

Gammaray is a beautiful rose-apricot, Helix is your shimmery golden and Roseshock is a duo-tone purple and baby pink shade.

Personally I would have preferred this palette to be smaller so easier for travel and storage as it would not be a palette you would grab for o the daily. They colors are blendable and can work on many skin tones and makeup looks.
/Personligen skulle jag ha föredragit att denna palett var mindre så det skulle vara lättare att resa med och även förvara då det är inte en palett som jag skulle ta varje dag. Färgerna är enkel att använda och fungerar på många hudtoner och looker.

What do you think about this palette? What are your thoughts on topper palettes?
/Vad tycker du om den här paletten? Vad är dina tankar om Toppers?
