Rainbow Bright Make Up by “Raf Manosca”


I always find ways to keep myself updated with the latest make up trends and techniques by enrolling in classes, workshops or watching youtube make up tutorials. 

Last Monday, March 10, 2014, I went to Mac Rockwell for makeover.  Once you purchase make up worth 5000 and above you are entitled to a makeover.  Since, I wanted to learn more techniques, I grabbed this opportunity and had my makeover done by, Mr. Raf Manosca, a certified Mac Make Up Artist in Mac Rockwell.  Every make up artist has their own signature way of doing make up.  To be honest, there is no such thing as rules in makeup.


Here’s a step by step procedure on how he did this make up on me.

  • FACE

To start of he applied Fix plus on my face.  After which, with a cotton ball he applied Mac Lightful Marine Bright Formula Softening Lotion which acts as a toner.  Then after he applied Prep and Prime Moisture Infusion Serum to give my face an instant glow.  To neutralize the redness in some areas of my face and also to neutralize the dark circles in my under eye, he applied Prep and Prime CC Color correcting SPF 30.  After that, he applied Studio sculpt Foundation in Shade of NC35 and to set my foundation he applied Mineralize foundation/ loose powder.  To conceal my dark circles, he applied Prolongwear Concealer in NW30 and after set it with loose powder.

To prime my lids he applied the Painterly Pro longwear paint pot.  To highlight the inner corner of my lid, he applied Gorgeous Gold e/s, followed by Aquadisiac e/s and in the outer third of my lid, carbon e/s.  In my eye crease he applied sketch velvet e/s and in my upper crease he applied crème de violet e/s and sushi flower e/s.  To highlight my brow bone he applied gorgeous gold e/s.  He lined my eyes with black smoulder eye khol pencil.  In my water line he applied designer purple pearlglide intense liner.  Lastly he applied Haute and Naughty Lash Mascara.  I really fell in love with my eye makeup.

  • LIPS


For my lips he applied the Snap Dragon lipstick and on top applied Mac’s Cremesheen Lipglass in Playful Petal.  I totally loved my lip color.
