░ Beauty Tutorial: High Fashion on Iza Artillero ░

*Before anything else, I would like to greet all my 
readers a Happy New Year!*
I had so much fun filming with my little sister that I asked her to model for me again. This time, I went all high fashion on her. I wanted to go out of my comfort zone and try something new. I really did not have any concept in mind. I just went with my instincts and came out with this gorgeous look. I am glad that all the clips were recorded and safely saved.

Before filming, I styled and curled her hair first with my JML Ceramic Hair Straightener.  I wanted soft and elegant curls for her. True enough, her hairstyle matched her makeup and her outfit (which she put together herself) as well.

The three drawn-on lashes certainly created drama on the eyes. The colors gold and silver are definitely perfect for the New Year. I wanted to create a fuschia undertone but realized that it didn't matter if I applied it or not. The colors gold and silver showed up as is. As I told you, I was experimenting! (laughs) The usual contours on the nose and the face definitely enhanced my sister's features. For the lips, I wanted a deep reddish-plum with a hint of velvety texture. Before applying the dry E/S, I applied a super moisturizing lip balm which my sister simple adores because of its amazing moisturizing agent, water micro-spheres! 

For the fashion part, you may have to visit my sister's site to read it.  (

Love, Say


  1. WOW! what can i say but WOW:)) the lips sure looked fuller and i love the gradation to red to dark red to black. it had a 3D effect on the lips :)) good job, Say! and i totally love your sister's wedges! gorgeous!

    the only flaw that i noticed was the false eyelashes.. you should've tightlined her eyes to make it look more natural and blended with her true lashes.. i can see a part of her lids on the close up photos eh.

    but nonetheless this look is amazing. you and your sister should do more of this!:)

    Happy new year!

  2. Thanks Louise! :)
    Hi Joice! Thank you so much! I know, she was afraid of tightlining and I allowed her to do it herself. It wasn't done perfectly, but ok lang. Haha we'll improve next time! Happy New Year as well!!! :)

  3. Love it say!Love your sisters wedge shoes btw!Pa ask naman where nia buy?lol

  4. Amanda, she bought it from SM Parisian line. :) Super daming maganda shoes there. Many of which are used during Philippine Fashion Week.

  5. this is very nice! good job, say! :)

  6. Your sis looks like Ciara Sotto! :)

  7. omg! the after look....she looks nakakatakot. everything looks dark. parang pang-Halloween. she's prettier pa sa before pic. it's not fashionable. It's not even "high-end".

  8. Hi Janica! Thank you for that compliment! :)
    Anonymous, thank you for dropping your comment here. We all respect your opinion. :)

  9. i find the make up too dark for your sister's feature.. since she already has strong feature, giving her really strong avant- garde thick make up will just make her look like a drag queen. she looks drag in most of the pictures especially the first "after" picture. but i must commend your technique say, the double winged technique is really innovative. looking forward to more make up blogs! have a great year ahead!
