Calyxta.Com’s Color Me Gorgeous Event

Last week, a few friends and I were invited to Calyxta‘s Color Me Gorgeous event at the very cute Early Night? in BGC. Calyxta.com is my favorite online store and magazine for all things beauty related! I’ve been a proud supporter of this site since its lovely beginnings a few years ago!

The star of the event was none other than master makeup artist (and super hottie) Jigs Mayuga who did a number of makeup looks showcasing his beauty look predictions for Fall/Winter 2017.

Here are some snaps from the event, where there were games, raffles, and chances to find your perfect shade in an assortment of gorgeous products.

Here is Jigs in action during the makeup demos:

Here are the looks Jigs showed us:

Ethereal: Strobing is definitely hotter than contouring right now and here are the products you can use from Calyxta to achieve this look.

SIMPLE HYDRATING LIGHT MOISTURIZER
SIMPLE MICELLAR WATER
MILANI CONCEAL + PERFECT 2-IN-1 FOUNDATION + CONCEALER
MAYBELLINE FACE STUDIO V-FACE STROBING CREAM
MAYBELLINE FACE STUDIO V-FACE STROBING STICK
MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL BIG EYES BLOOM MASCARA

Just Kissed Lips: A darker shade in the middle blended with a lighter shade on the sides. Jigs recommends using your fingers to perfectly blend everything together.

Products used: 

PIXI GET THE LOOK – ITSLIPTIME
MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL BIG EYES BLOOM MASCARA

Reinvented Smokey Eye: This one would look beautiful on chinita eyes. A winged smokey that actually isn’t too scary. Jigs says the secret is symmetry and proper blending.

Products used: 

EYE OF HORUS PALETTE in Sekhmet Smokey Goddess
EYE OF HORUS LIQUID DEFINE EYE LINER BLACK
MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL BIG EYES BLOOM MASCARA

Straight Brows: Brows are all the rage these days. Jigs says the secret to feathering your brows is using a spool brush. He also prefers a rounded end rather than a square on in your thicker side.

Products used: 

MALISSA KISS SUPER SHAPE ULTRA HD BROW PENCIL in Mocha
MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL BIG EYES BLOOM MASCARA

Pop of Color: Jigs says he loves how he’s seeing more ladies play with color on their eyes rather than the standard browns or grays. He showed us how to do an ombre gradiant on the eyes. I have to also add that Jigs only did one eyelid (the right one) while a student did the other side. You can tell a master’s hand a mile away.

Products used:

EYE CANDY EYESHADOW PALETTE in Eye Candy 1
MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL BIG EYES BLOOM MASCARA

Here’s cutie pie Patty Laurel-Filart during the event. This photo was too cute to not share.
