Tips: Achieving the Natural Look

Always remember that “less is more” in applying make up to achieve that natural glow. For Everyday make up, light and natural should always be the key.  Choose make up colors that will enhance your features not overcome them, they should make you still look like yourself.

Here are tips on how to achieve the Natural make up look:

  • First  of all the foundation should match your skin tone. or better yet use powder if your skin is already perfect ( most Filipina’s do already). Don’t put on too much foundation. ( it will make your face look cakey or pulvorinsh 🙂 )
  •  If your buying a shade for you i suggest you try the shade not on your hand, but on a part of your cheek /anyhwere around the face area just to make sure the tone matches your face.
  • Eyebrows should always be well-balanced. brows should not be darker than your hair color. So choose a shade that will definitely match your hair.
  • Eyeshadow colors  are preffered to be on the neutral shades (browns,peach,bronze ( I like bronze it adds up a little drama on your look )).
  • Curl your lashes to open up your eyes. This instantly brighten
  • Apply thin coats of mascara on the upper and lower lashes of your lids.
  • Lip colors should be close to the original color of the lips. pink,coral shades will do 🙂


Eyes are the windows to the soul.

B/A:Mrs. Abella (Mature Make-up)

My co-worker Melai, asked me at work(haha, part-time medtech, full-time make up artist :p ) one afternoon if I could do make up for her mom. She would be attending a Wedding as a “Ninang” ( Godmother). To be a Godmother is one prestigious part in the wedding like the bride you will walk down the aisle and be presented in a principal sponsors table. Another note that Melai gave me is that the other principal sponsors will be famous personalities like Sen. Bong RevillaSen. Jinggoy Estrada, Phillip Salvador and Lorna Tolentino.

Her mom has a Spanish lineage so her facial feature resembles of a Mestiza, like our former Ms. Universe , Ms. Gloria Romero. Deep-set eyes, well defined nose bridge  high cheek bones and a small lips to complete it.

She is also not used to putting make up on, ever-since her teenage years. So this was really a challenge for me.  She told me that she wants light make up.  Strong make up makes her feel very unlike herself and uncomfortable.

As a make up artist it is important for me to view clients opinion. They will be wearing the make up the whole day so ,its really important that they are comfortable, and they would feel confident about themselves. That’s really the whole point of being a make up artist. Making my clients feel comfortable,confident and naturally beautiful.

so with out further a due, here’s Mrs. Abella ;

Hair and Make up by :Nybie Anne Marie Ng


Her brows are naturally thin so i reconstructed it and made her eye brows more defined.

on her eyes are dark brown, light brown and gold shades these are shades on the more neutral color,

Her cheeks are prominent but to make it more define i highlighted her cheek bone as well to make her look more  younger.

on the lips, shes not used to dark shades of colors so she suggested that it would be on lighter side or the pinker shade. so instead i mixed two colors of lipstick one on the pink end another on the old rose tone.

Her hair is naturally short and wavy,so, thought of achieving a more regal hairdo for her.


me and the beautiful Mrs. Mayet Abella 😛

Isn’t she so Regal ? Love ly!:)

that night i received a message making my heart melt, a thank you text from Melai;

Hi, Nybie! thanks sa pag make up sa mom ko,

B/A: PBCC Host- Shaila

My friend was asked to do the hosting for the PBCC( Philippine Bloodbank Commission Convention) this  convention is done every year for people in the Medical field like Doctors, Medical Technologists( like me, that’s my other job. hihi), Nurses, Medical suppliers and so on and so forth. This is one of the big events thats tackles new innovation, technology and updates on Bloodbanking. Blood banking is the process that takes place in the laboratory to ensure that donated blood, or blood products, are safe before they are used in blood transfusions and other medical procedures. Blood banking includes typing the blood for transfusion and testing for infectious diseases.(to give you an overview,hehe). Every convention has a theme and a fellowship night before it ends , For this year its.


so here’s what i did for her futuristic themed make up;


I wanted to do something dark and smokey her outfit would be  black and leather with a feel of Matrix (the movie) plus leather boots. So, I thought of something glamorous at the same time futuristic. 

For the eyes: Black-Silver Dark Smokey eyes

Brows was fixed with Motives Browkit

  Cheeks: soft peach-pink blush

Lips: soft pink lipstick

Hair was done in an half updo raised really high!:) haha i curled the half part of the hair to give her more of the feminine look,
