Feature: Eye make up for Hooded Eyes

Hello Dearies! This time I am featuring eye make up for hooded eyes. If you're like me, whose problem is the skin on the brow bone drooping along the crease of the eyelid, then sit back and relax, because this article is for you!

I was on the hunt for some cosmetics at Watsons when I saw this cute pocket palette eyeshadow from Careline. It is so small that you can slip it inside your shallow pocket. When I opened the case, 15 different eye colors were in view. I looked at the back to see the price and it was marked at Php 95.00 or USD 1.78. I bought it because I want to see if the colors would blend well with my hooded eyes.

When we reach the age of 45 or over 50, our aim or goal in applying makeup should not be to look younger but rather to enhance or highlight our best features in a subtle way. As women get older too, we seem to lose our eye creases because it is hidden by the droop in our eyelids. I want to share with you, my midlife sisters how I fix my hooded eyes, by simple eye makeup application.

These are the things that you'll need:

1. Eye palette in multiple colors
2. Black eyeliner
3. White eyeliner
4. Eyeshadow applicator
5. Eyeshadow blending brush ( in my case I use my fingertips)

Here are the simple steps to apply eye make up to lift the lids of our eyes:

1. Pick the lightest shade in the Careline eye palette and apply it on the entire lid. 
2. I chose the second color on the first column of the eye palette and applied it on the outer brow.
3. For the entire crease of the eyelid, choose any of the colors you desired in the first & second column. Choose a darker shade. Blend the color you applied in the eyelid up to the outer brow to lift your lids.
4. Line your eyelids with black eyeliner, create a wing at the end of the lid. Apply the black liner gently so it will not create a harsh look. This will also lift your eyelid.
5. Apply a white liner along your lower lid, this will widen your eyes.
6. Apply a brown color below your eyelid, this will widen your eyes too. ( I used a matte brown eye color not found in the eye palette).
7. I applied a light highlighter along the brow bone. You can use the eye color you applied on your entire lid as a highlighter for your brow bone.
8. Finish. Watch the video below on how to get this look.

Now to review the Careline eyeshadow pocket palette, this is my honest opinion:

Careline Eyeshadow Pocket Palette

  • 15 shades
  • 1 eyeshadow applicator with 2 tips
  • Inside the case, there is an instruction on how to use the eye palette
  • Net weight 6g
  • Price: Php 95.00 or USD 1.78
What I like about it:

  • It is very handy especially during travels
  • Many colors to choose from
  • Very, very cheap! I don't know if one can find an eye palette with 15 shades at this price!

What I don't like about it:

  • Once you dip the eyeshadow applicator, the eyeshadow breaks into particles easily.
Would I recommend it:

Yes, because it really serves its purpose. There are many eye colors to choose from. All the eye color from the first & second column are suitable for older women. It is very handy especially during travels. And at the price of Php 95.00 (USD 1.78), no reason that you can't buy make up for yourself.

Rating: 4/5 stars

Product Review: Maxi Peel Zero

Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty. - Coco Chanel There are so many ads shown in media about skincare products for pimple & acne removal and at the same time for smoothening and lightening of facial skin. Usually, these are skincare products that exfoliate the skin to remove the skin impurities brought by exposure to nature, pollution and even the cosmetics you apply on your face. Exfoliating the skin would mean darkening of the skin first, then peeling, last is the reddening of the skin.

I have tried facial exfoliant before but after a few days of using it, I have to stop using it completely because it was so painful. My face felt raw, even the touch of the wind or water on my face was so painful. I have to cover my face with my hanky because even a whiff of wind hurts my face. My face became reddish, it looks I've been extremely sunburned.

I received sample products from SampleRoom and one of the items  I ordered…

"Work-life balance is not a reality. You need to strive for work-life integration or work-life blend. My family is most important, but my job is also an important part of who I am and I want my kids to appreciate that." - Overheard at She Runs It Working Mother of the Year Awards

I need to work John's salary is not enough to provide for our family.
My Boss didn't approve my leave advise, he said I already incurred so many leaves and it's just a quarter of the year.
