theBalm x CARLS: Makeup Demo by Me!

by - 11:44 PM

Hello, Angels!

As perhaps you’d noticed from my Instagram posts a week ago, I teamed up with theBalm Indonesia to create an exclusive, intimate make up demo event with my friends and lucky followers! Woo, how cool is that? I am a big faaaaan of theBalm’s cosmetics, you can see I hauled a lot of their products in the past and my reviews were all very good, so I was so happy to accept this opportunity when they first contacted me 😉

So, the theme of this look is: Flawless Complexion Makeup. The makeup demo was held at the promotion booth of theBalm at Ciputra World Mall, Surabaya. The space was quite spacious, but when all the 15 invitations had all finally arrived, it was quickly packed with beautiful ladies 😉

please ignore my over excited face as I greeted the invitations!
I contacted this beautiful model, Adelyne, and she accepted right away. Lucky me to be able to do her makeup!

To be honest, this is my first ever makeup demo in front of public. I mean like, I’ve done makeup on others like hundred times before, but never in front of big crowd! Being an introverted extrovert, of course I was quite nervous but thank God I can pretty much do my best and fight the anxiety!

the products that I used that day. see the details down below!

see how packed the venue was? >.<

In this post, I will break down into details and tell you the steps that I did in the demo, so you can get the flawless complexion makeup too with your theBalm products 😊

First, I prime Adelyne’s skin using Time Balm Primer. It’s more of a moisturizing primer, so this one is meant to be used all over the face even though it has silicones in it to help with pores. It has clear, gel-like constituency which is super easy to blend out, and helps prolong the wear of whatever foundation on top while keeping your skin moisturized underneath.

Next, I’m taking the ultimate theBalm’s concealer: Time Balm Concealer! I picked the shade Light/Medium for Adelyne and started concealing her under eye area, redness, side of her nose, and blemishes as well.

After concealing, it’s time for foundation. This time I’m using theBalm’s Time Balm Foundation, which is a full-coverage cream foundation. Even though this one’s thicker and definitely more of a cream consistency than the Even Steven that I reviewed here, but the Time Balm is just as good – if not better! – as Even Steven is, and the texture is actually quite lightweight for such a cream product! It’s so easy to blend the product into Adelyne’s super dry skin, I was quite shocked because this foundation looked thick when I first swatched it on arm. A new favorite!

Even though the Time Balm foundation had the perfect natural-matte finish, I’d love to set it just a little on the undereye area using PhotoBalm Powder Foundation. Then, to contour, I used another favorite product from theBalm: Bahama Mama to contour her face and nose. As for the blusher, I picked the best-selling FratBoy, a light peach matte blusher to brighten her face up and make it look fresh yet cute!

Next, it’s time to do the eye makeup. I pick Balm Appetite palette, create a soft-taupe eye makeup. For the eyebrow I’m using the shade Ray Sinbread to fill in the gaps between Adelyne’s natural brow hairs. Then I picked the Schwing Liquid Liner – which is another favorite of mine, because it’s so easy to use – and applied Cheater mascara on.

Finally, it’s time for the lips! I used a soft pink Pick Up Liner before topping it up with one of my favorite shade from the Meet Matte Hughes lip cream: Charming! It’s a beautiful neutral pink-brown shade which is very stunning 😉

Aaaand here’s the result, and few before-after photos:

Once again I would like to thank theBalm Indonesia for the opportunity and all the invitations who could make it to the venue even though the weather was super unfriendly that day – it was raining oh so hard and the sky was pitch black at 2 PM - thank you so much! 

Anyway, I will be LIVE at theBalm Indonesia's Instagram on December 2nd, at 1-3 PM (West Indonesia Time) to do another makeup demo: Fresh & Cute Doll Makeup Look! I will be showing you how to create my signature fresh makeup look there, and if you want we can chit-chat online there while I share my tips and tricks with my personal favorite theBalm products 😍😄 
Stay tune to theBalm's Instagram at the aforementioned date, okay?

See you in the next event, Ladies!
