Made-Up History: Gerhard Richter’s “Détail (rouge-bleu),” 1970.

Yay a new Made-Up History! When I made this series, I set out to do it once a week. Kinda funny (not really) how it all played out, but I am going to try to play a little bit more with this series since I’ve been kind of meh about makeup combinations lately. One of the reasons why I haven’t been doing this is because I haven’t found a really nice work that I felt compelled to use for Made-Up History. If you’re new, MUH is a series in which I kind of re-create an artist’s piece as a makeup look by distilling the elements. It’s not really cosmetic art (like how some people re-do Van Gogh’s work on their face), but just translating a work into a look that I may or may not wear everyday. I have done a few of those, which you can see here. Today, we’ll take on a work by Gerhard Richter, who is one of the most famous living artists (82 years old!) today. Richter, who hails from …

First FOTD of 2014: Eye of Newt & the Storm

LOL, what a dumb title. Happy 2014, friends! 🙂 Here’s the first full face of makeup I wore this year. Full-ish, I should say. Since one of my beauty resolutions is to do a modified Project Pan, I picked out the things I wanted to/had to use up before I could buy another (if I want to replace that shit in the first place). Base: y.e.t. Cosmetics Fill It Up Primer, Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation (Cheers to Me… Champagne), Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder (Ethereal Light) Cheeks: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush (Flush), MAC Mineralize Skinfinish (Lightscapage) Eyes: OCC Crème Colour Concentrate (Newt), MAC Prolongwear Paint Pot (Stormy Pink), Inglot Eyeshadow (125R, middle shade), MAC Eye Kohl (Prunella), Le Métier de Beauté Eye Brightening and Setting Powder (Refresh) to set shadows. I should note that Newt creased on my left eye, though I didn’t wear primer. Eyebrows: Inglot Brow Powder (569) Lips: MAC Lustre Lipstick (Jubilee) And that’s it! I’m trying to be more adventurous, too… In case you couldn’t tell. Hee! What …

First Encounters with Inglot

Another spoil from Black Friday. I only got it now because I live in a faraway land South East Asia. Anyway, I purchased 2 Inglot Palettes and some innards from the actual Inglot site. I was on a ban when I stepped into the Inglot store that just opened here in the Philippines, but I figured I could take advantage of a 20% off sale once I was “allowed” to purchase makeup, so I did. Here’s the damage… OK, so I got two palettes: one 5-shadow palette, and one blush + 3-shadow palette. I don’t know what they’re actually called, I think just EB and [5] Square, as indicated by their boxes. The packaging is awesome and sleek. Very minimalist, though I think I’d have preferred the logo to not be patterned over the ENTIRE cover. The cover is frosted plastic that’s pretty heavy-duty, and it attaches to the actual matte black case with four strong magnets on each corner. I predict that this will be a long-ish entry, so I’ll cut it here.
