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

Singapore:Day 2 Kampong Glam, Sentosa, Universal Studios Singapore

I was supposed to start the 2nd part of my Singapore trip last night but because of a lot of work at the office (making up for the days I was away from work), I was so tired when I arrived home. I'm missing Singapore already so I'd better start my blog right now!

Anyway, day 2 started earlier today. While Charmi was still sleeping, I sneaked out of bed and took a bath. The bathrooms at Meadows Hostel where we stayed were very clean but you have to bring along your own toiletries because they are not provided. No need to bring towels, they will provide it, and before I forget when we checked in, the receptionist gave us 2 free adapters. By the way, I booked our hostel via No credit card  or prepayment was required, I paid in cash at the hostel.
Before taking a bath, I took my breakfast and I have the pantry by myself. The pantry has an overview of the sky rise buildings in Singapore and I was enjoying the sprinkling of rain. It was a beautiful morning, no hurries,…

How can Midlife Women Live Longer?

How long do you want to live? 80, 90, 100? But the real question is," how can we live longer?". To live longer entails keeping our bodies in good health, in good shape, nurturing our spiritual growth, and caring for our family. According to data, a woman turning 65 today can expect to live on average until 86.6 years of age. I stumbled upon on internet a life expectancy calculator, this calculator computes the additional life expectancy of a person. This is how it works: I input my date of birth then it calculated that I will have an additional life expectancy of 33.6 years! Wow!

The truth is there are several factors that contribute to the increase or decrease in life expectancy. These are:

1.  Current health- are you in good health? suffering from an ailment?
2.  Lifestyle - are you a smoker? drinks excessively? does not exercise? parties too much?
3.  Family history - is there a member of your family who has cancer, diabetes, hypertension?

Smoking, drinking too much alcoho…

Korean Skin Whitening Product for Php 13.00 only

Anyong haseyo (pronounced Ahn-yo-ha-say-yoh)! Korean beauty is the mania these days, everyone is all agog with the perfect, glowing, white skin of the oppas and unnies. While browsing over the internet, I came across this product Seoul White Korea, I looked it up and learned it is sold at Watsons. After enjoying the sweltering heat of summer in the beaches, my natural morena skin became darker and duller. I'm not after achieving a fair complexion like the Koreans, what I want is to bring back the color of my skin to its natural glory in the shortest time. So, my midlife women- sisters, let us try these beauty products and see if we can incorporate it into our daily skincare routine.

I visited a Watsons store near our house and went directly to the skin care racks but no Seoul White Korea in sight, so I walked over at the other side of the store and there I saw my Seoul White Korea! There were Seoul White Korea Soap and Seoul White Korea cream in tube and sachet. I took down the ba…
