Rock Some Sparkle: The Body Shop Winter Trend 2012

The Body Shop has just launched their Winter Trend Makeup Collection, and because I'm excited to share it with you, this is going to be a photo-heavy post! I went to The Body Shop in SM Megamall last Friday for the launch, where the attendees had a makeover using the Winter Trend Makeup products and had a glimpse of the fabulous special edition Bath & Body items The Body Shop has in store for us shoppers this holiday season!

Because it's a makeup launch, we were treated to a makeover. It was Isay again of The Body Shop who did my Winter Trend makeover, just like last year! I love how she works her makeup magic on me every single time. Every makeover is a learning experience for me too, as I get to learn new makeup tricks from the pro.

Products Used:

For the face:
The Body Shop Vitamin C Energising Face Spritz

Because I came to the event already wearing some makeup, Isay wiped some of it off with a makeup remover, and freshened up my face with generous mists of the Vitamin C Energising Face Spritz. While my face was still damp, she used a powder brush to apply the All-In-One Face Base. This yielded to a heavier coverage (compared to using it dry), and I loved how fresh and glowing my skin looked right after! It was as if I didn't come straight from the office, as all signs of haggardness was erased! Now I realized the wonders of a face mist, and I'm putting it on my Christmas wishlist!

For the eyes:
The Body Shop 4-Step Smoky Eyes Palette in Smoky Moonstone
The Body Shop Brow & Liner Kit
The Body Shop Eye Definer in Golden Brown & Moonstone

When Isay asked me who did my brows, I was actually nervous to admit that I did it myself! I worried that it looked bad or wrong, but she said that I did it nicely. Whew! Thanks to all the LYB workshops and makeovers I have attended, I learned the importance of filling in my eyebrows, and what a big difference it makes on your entire look. She retouched my brows with the Brow & Liner Kit, and proceeded on to the eye makeup. She used the Smoky Moonstone palette on me, which was comprised of cool toned eyeshadow, and lined my eyes with the metallic eye definer pencils. What I noticed about these metallic eyeliners is the very smooth glide it has, compared to The Body Shop's Eye Definers in classic shades.

I have been searching for an off-white/vanilla/peachy eyeliner for so long, since I find white eyeliner too harsh and unnatural (for my waterline), and I have finally found the best eyeliner shade ever - MOONSTONE! It's not white nor is it yellow - just in between! I love the pearly shade of this eyeliner, and how it managed to made my eyes look bright and more awake. You have to check this out!

For the cheeks:
The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain

Another technique I learned was that I CAN use cheek stain over powder. I never, ever attempted that before, because I knew that cheek stains are meant to be used before powder. Isay used a blush brush to blend the Lip & Cheek Stain on my cheeks with a swift motion, and the result was a lovely flush!

For the lips:
The Body Shop Cranberry Lip Dome
The Body Shop Colourglide Shine Lip Colour in Ruby

The Cranberry Lip Dome is a tinted lip balm that's too cute for words! It looks like a mushroom or a stamp (like the ones our teachers would use to stamp "VERY GOOD" on our hands when we were kids). It comes in 3 flavors/colors, but I loved this shade the most because it's red. The Cranberry Lip Dome gives a hint of red tint on my lips. This was used to prep my lips prior to applying the Colourglide Shine Lip Colour in Ruby (which is a bright, lovely red shade!).

For the face:
The Body Shop Dazzling Rocks in Golden Copper

Using the fluffy Slanted Kabuki Brush, Isay used the Dazzling Rocks to contour my forehead, cheeks, and jawline. This one reminded me of the Lily Cole Puff On Radiance - only with a different shade and packaging.

For the face, body, and hair:
The Body Shop The Sparkler in Dazzling Copper

The Sparkler in Dazzling Copper is my absolute favorite from the Winter Trend Collection! It can be used to add sparkle to the face, body, and even my hair. Isay also taught me how to use this as a shimmery blush. Do check this one out and be amazed!

I look like a teleserye kontrabida here, and I love it! :D
