Fashion 21 Two-Way Cake Foundations

Ladies, it's a must that we use skin care daily especially when you're out all day. But sometimes putting layers of skin care and makeup can be a bit tedious when you're always in a rush. That's why having skin care ingredients on the makeup we are using is always a good idea for me.

Let me share with you some of the foundations I've been trying this month from Fashion 21. They're all two-way cake, meaning you may opt to apply it wet or dry depending on the finish you want to achieve. 

To achieve a full long-lasting coverage, use the wet application. Do this by dabbing some product on the sponge then spray a bit of water on it then apply on the face. But if you want a more natural, skin-like finish with a bit of coverage, dry application it is! For more coverage, use the sponge. But if you want it more subtle, use your face brush to apply the foundation.

I have their four variants of two-way cake foundations:

Fashion 21 Two-way Cake Foundation SPF35+ with  Tea Tree Oil. Use this if you have sensitive skin as it protects your face from the sun and the tea tree oil has healing properties so it's best in times when you're breaking out.

Fashion 21 Two-way Cake Foundation SPF35+. If you want your makeup to have sun protection only.

Fashion 21 Two-way Cake Foundation SPF35+ with Papaya Extract. Makeup with sun protection and whitening properties yeah!

Fashion 21 Two-way Cake Foundation SPF35+ with Milk Moisturizer. For those who have dry skin, this one is for you. It keeps your face moisturized without making your face oily.

I've been using the Fashion 21 Two-way Cake Foundation SPF35+ with Milk Moisturizer for two weeks now and it has been good so far. Use it alone, it gives me instant freshness and flawless skin. I also sometimes use it as a setting powder on my liquid foundation if I want to cover all my freckles and marks. All I can say for now is that it's a very good and affordable foundation!

My New Makeup Bag

Being a makeup artist is not an easy profession. Well at least for me :) It's not glamorous or anything extravagant. I sometimes have to take long drives, work for long hours and carry heavy loads of makeup to a location. 

That's why I keep on thinking of ways to make it less complicated for me. I recently purchased this shock proof 2 layer makeup bag and I find it so perfect if I'm only doing 1 head or two and if there's no elevator on the location or the work involves a lot of walking and lifting haha. Love this!

This makeup bag has 2 layers. 

When you open the first one, It has a place for brushes and large zipper pocket where I place my cleaning tools like alcohol, tissue and some of my palettes.

It comes with 2 straps which you can place to make it a shoulder bag or a backpack. For me, it's easier to carry as a backpack as I don't feel the weight of all my makeups this way.

This is the second layer. It has brush holders with cover and several interchangeable compartments. Love this because it's easier to locate the makeup that I need this way.

It also has a medium sized zipper pocket at the side where I put my favorite palettes also.

And that's it! I hope I gave detailed information about this very useful makeup bag. I bought this for P1400 from someone on our Makeup Artist Group on Facebook but you may purchase this at Suesh.

Wedding Airbrush Makeup for Aludia

Hi guys! I've been pretty overwhelmed with my life right now having 2 kids: one just in Grade 1 and a first timer in big school and a toddler who constantly moves around and calls for mommy. I took a long time-off with work after I gave birth because I wanted to breastfeed my daughter but I am now ready to work work work! I also promised myself to alot time for my blog again.

Showing you one of my recent bridal makeup work. My client here is Aludia. She's a friend of one of my brides years ago. I am very thankful to my past clients who still remembers me and refer me to their friends and relatives. I really appreciate the trust you're all giving me.

Took this photo using my Iphone.

And this one from Fine and Dainty Wedding Photographer.

Her makeup is simple, fresh and classic. Used my trusted Temptu S/B Airbrush Makeup on her and double false eyelashes to add glam to her look.

And here's their on-site wedding video. Watch it if you're going to wed in the near future for pegs and inspiration. I really like the work of Fine and Dainty Photo. They are very professional to work with too.
