OC-Craft Makeup 001: Greenery & Grey


I enjoyed watching makeup tutorials in YouTube to the point that it became a routine before going to sleep. I want to make videos about makeup tutorial someday but for now I’m still in a process of figuring it out on how to edit. If you are into videos and using an amazing app, please share it at the comment section below so I can check it out. I’m also interested in attending makeup workshops to learn some tricks and techniques on how to apply it. But for now, here’s my first attempt sharing with you my makeup post.

Sharing with you the 4 highlighted part of this post...


2017 color trend is greenery, good thing I have a shade closer to that and it’s called Bitter Eyeshadow shade by Mac Cosmetics.  It’s so much pigmented so I just tap small amount of it.


I’m still practicing my cat wing eye stroke so I used HyperSharp Black Eyeliner by Maybelline to give some chic effect on my look. It dries very quickly and it doesn’t smudge on my upper eyelid. #OcCraftPasado

False Lashes…

To give my lashes some extra length, I added false lashes by PaDolly Love. It’s soft and

Contact lens…

To add some “PAK” on my look, I wore contact lens in the shade of grey by Tru Colour (Thanks for this gift Hubby)... If you can notice, the shape is bigger and there are printed stars going on which I like the most. Someday I’ll use this wearing cosplay outfit (adding it now to my bucket list). But for this post, I wore my off-shoulder stripes top.

What do you think of my first makeup look?

According to bespreng YouTube, there will be lots of fashion trend for 2017 and one of it is the Off Shoulders. It can be in a form of top or dress with raffles or in lace details. Actually it’s a trend last year and it will definitely still be on trend this year. 

Off shoulders tops will make you look instant girly and at the same time sexy. What I also like about this, it’s perfect when you’re wearing a simple outfit yet you what to get notice by just showing of your shoulders. Good this I still keep mine. I’m planning to add at least 2-3 more style pa maybe in floral bold prints for summer, the other one is with a sweetheart shape design and a black dress for format attire, but for a meanwhile here are my off shoulders collection that you will be seeing me wearing this year.

OC-Craft December 2016 Favorites


Hi Lovelies, It's the first month of 2017 and this is the time where we start planning our year right. Now for this year I'm planning to do a Blog Post System (BPS). What does it mean? It's a system of blog posting every month by category so you will be expecting Monthly Favorites, Fashion Trends and Makeup Tutorials. I'm not a professional in doing these but I will do my best to share with you what I have learned and will be learned. So please join me as I expand my knowledge in doing these things by showing some love at my IG account @carmella08 and hitting the like button on my FB page @OC-Craft.. To start my first blog post for this month, I would like to share with you my December 2016 Favorites.

For Makeup Category...

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 535 Crème Rum Raisin. I love this shade. It gives professional look and you can wear it everyday. Thanks to Ma’am Karen for this gift.

Pink Shock Baby Lips Electro Pop by Maybelline.  I also love this shade and the smell too. (amoy strawberry candy). I wore this whenever I want pafresh look effect or when I feel lazy but wants to look pretty pa rin.

Quick FX No-Shine Mattifier Primer. Since I have an oily skin this sillicon base gel primer somehow helps stays my makeup for the entire day.

3 Shades Eyebrow by Shawill in shade 002. I used this for my everyday eyebrow makeup. It has three shades (brown, ash grey and black). Before, I used brown shade which I think it was too dark for me. But whenever I'm with my friend who's brows are always on fleek, my eyebrows looks very light or worst parang no brows at all. Thanks to this product, I have an option to move one step darker which is now I'm using ash grey. During a recent makeup workshop that I attended, I've learned that eyebrow powders are best when you put a little bit of water to it. So it will stay longer and easy to fill in.

Tinted Brow Gel by Nichdo in Salted Caramel shade. Finally I have this product! I saw my sister using this and it works magic to her eyebrows. So I gave it a try and it works well for me too! Aside from changing your eyebrows color, it helps shaping your brows too. Try upward stroke then slowly glide it starting at the center of your brows going down to the tip. 

Hyper Sharp Power Black Eyeliner Pen by Mabelline. I've been searching for a perfect eyeliner pen that has soft pointed tip brush that I can easily draw a cat wing eye like what I have before the Phisyscians Formula, but it's too expensive for me to buy another item like that. So thanks to this product it works almost the same but at a cheaper price. 

Makeup Kit by  Real Techniques. I won this product joining an Instagram contest of @gendabelleblog who looooves makeup. At first, I really don't know this brand, but I like the shades and how pigmented they are. Then I was introduced to a very soft and furry brush (which I really-really like) during the makeup workshop I attended last month then it happens to be a Real Technique brand. Sabi ko pa, the brand sounds familiar to me... And Oh I have that brand pala which happens to be this makeup kit. Good thing I won this product so I will not spend anymore to buy this. #luckyme

For Face Care Category...

Aloe Vera Soothing Gel Moisturizer by Watsons. Davao Bloggers Glam Squad suggests an aloe vera gel as moisturizer then I saw this at Watsons. So far so good. I don't have any comparison yet since this is the first time I used this kind of moisturizer. Do you have in mind? Please leave a comment at the description box below.

For Makeup Tool Accessory Category...

Pointed brush by Viviflor, Spoolie by Nippon, Mini brow angle and face brush by Urban Decay. During the makeup workshop I attended, I've learned that you can do magic if you have a perfect wand (me, referring to makeup brushes). I don't have some fairy dust yet (me, referring to money) to buy some oh so smooth and fluffy brushes… But soon I will bwahahahahahaha!!!

False Lashes by Pa Dolly Love which I won during Ms. Xana Patal makeup workshop last month. The lashes are easy to install because of its soft texture. Unlike other false lashes that I've tried sobrang plastic. I didn't know there are lashes na soft and has cheaper price. Thanks to Ms. Xana! 

Eyelash Glue by Nichido. Usually false lashes come with free eyelash glue but sad part some of it doesn’t stick. Good thing this item works for me. Dikit agad!
