Askmewhats Version: "Jessie Glova" look

Happy Tuesday people! :) I will take a rest from Work look but this is still a workable work look for everyone! I have tried the Jessie Glova 28pcs Neutral palette which is like the Coastal Scents 28pcs palette (thanks to Kim for the wonderful and quick shipping). I remembered one of my dear reader wanted me to do a neutral look that's focused more on mattes! This is the best palette to do a matte look and any other looks!

AMW Diagram

Step 1:

Prior to e/s application, I prime the eye with Fashion 21 Stick Eyeshadow Liner in Pearl. Blend using my fingers.

Using a flat shader brush, apply a matte cream e/s on the brow bone area going to the inner corner of the eye.

Step 2:

Using a crease brush (MAC's 226), apply a shimmery maroon e/s all over the outer corner of the eye. Blending it inwards.

Step 3:

Using the same brush, patte on matte black e/s on the outer v to deepen the look of the crease area.

Step 4:

Using my MAC's 217 brush or any blending brush, pat on shimmery brownish gold e/s on the center of the eye lid creating an illusion of a "bright eyed" look.

Step 5:

Line your upper lashline and lower lash line with Maybelline Eyestudio Vivid & Smooth Liner in Dark Purple blending it with my Smashbox's Pencil brush.

Do not forget to curl your lashes and apply 2 coats of mascara
using Maybelline's Volum' Express Cat Eyes in Feline Black

Final look :)

For the face:

Joppa Full Coverage Foundation
in Medium Light #2

buffed with Ecotools Kabuki Brush

For the cheeks:

Arezia Pinkish Blush
using Thevi Dome Blush 15

For the Lips:

NYX Round Lipstick in Jupiter
Shawill Gloss

Semi braid your hair, like a crown
and smile away!

I know I've been doing a lot of light and fresh looking makeup for the past few weeks! I'll be doing some request from readers for dark looks! Keep reading and I'll slowly do "most" of your requests! Thanks for being patient!

If you wonder how the Jessie Glova palette works, do watch out for my review on that palette as I'm still working my way creating different looks before I can do a final review! Again, thanks for being patient...I know..repetition....sign of old age! LOL

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!


  1. sooo pretty!! ive been wanting a similar neutral palette but i dont think i need it lol.

  2. Nikki, I always admire how you create so much more depth to your eyes. Very pretty look! :)

  3. pretty pretty! Love the fresh look on you, and your lipcolor is really nice!

    aww that sucks about your sasa packages. I guess it has something to do w/ the customs? I was afraid of them charging me a lot extra when I first ordered from them. Maybe that's why sasa has this option where you don't need to show the price of the things you bought on the box :p

    I also hate it when I miss a package delivery and I have to go to the post office to pick it up because it takes forever to wait in line!

  4. This is a perfect look for working girls like me :) Thanks for sharing, sis! :)

  5. Oh Nikki, your skin is so flawless!!! :D

    I love how the purple liner breaks the monotony of the neutral colors!! Very nice!!! Thanks for sharing as always! :D

  6. love this :D makes ur eye appear bigger :D

  7. Hi! This look is so pretty! I love your lip colour...and the great tutorial!

  8. great work to night out look sis. i lov emy neutral palette too! :) which reminds me to use them today. :)

  9. This is a very pretty day time look Nikki :)

  10. That is fab! :) I don't know how to do eye make-up. It's just frustrating! Haha! But maybe I could try this. This tutorial is sooooo comprehensive. I love the diagram! It makes the process a whole lotta easier. Thanks! :) And oh, your skin is fab too! ;)

  11. very nice n suitable for OL... I can easily dupe the colors using other brands, versatile n not lacking of sexy too... Hahaha.. I love this kind of FOTD as I don't have to follow strictly the color codes or brands... not easy to get some brands in local... hahaha...

  12. thanks for the very easy tut! will try to copy that look.. =)

  13. i also have that Fashion21 stick, will try to use it as e/s primer. its kinda sticky right? hopefully will not make my eyeshadow crease hehe

  14. wow!
    soooo pretty!

    lately im digging for neutral looks..
    im actually just waiting until the 88 neutral palette will somehow get here in the philippines...

    You look so cute,nikki!

  15. Very nice look! Very natural!
    And so great palette, very good matte shadows! it's kind of hard to get absolutelly matte shadows for me ...

  16. Pretty! you exude happiness, Nikki. It's contagious.


  17. This is so pretty, love the purple eyeliner!

  18. BECKY, yes, you have enough eyeshadows :D and your eyes look awesome !

    Jess, thank you! I love it that you think I create depth to my eyes, that is a wonderful thing for you to say!

    Lulu, I haven't been using that shade of lipcolor for quite sometime, so thanks for letting me know you like it! It has to do with our local customs (re: packages) a lot of us beauty enthusiast down here felt disappointed with our local postal office!

  19. Teeyah, no worries, it is my pleasure to share!

    Jenn, awww, you know it looks flawless because of makeup :)

    Aika, thanks sis, I'm glad it made my small eyes appear bigger thank you!

    Crystal Gale, thank you!

  21. Noelle, yes, give this a try, I've always been frustrated and here I go, doing tutorials! LOL It really doesn't take a long time to learn! so goodluck!!!

    Jamilla Camel, thank you dearie!

    Syn@3sTh3sI@, yes, this look is dupe-able with other brands, you can find the shades anywhere :) Enjoy! And I hear you on not being able to purchase certain brands locally! :)

  22. Khymm, thanks for sharing the palette, it is wonderful! Well if your eyes crease, do use a regular eye primer before using this Fashion 21 :)

    Thiamere, same here, I think I just don't have the energy to do full make up in the morning! :)can't wait to see your 88 neutral palette!

    ☆Anastacia☆, matte e/s is quite difficult to pull off! but I still do dot some sparkle to awaken my look!

  23. Liza, awww.you are too sweet!

    The purple eyeliner Gio gave a different kind of pop :) I like to use colored pencil liners on neutral looks, how about you?

  24. what do you think about the shawii lip gloss? i tried it but i don't like the smell :P it's tolerable once it's in the lips though.

  25. Crystal! *high five!* When I first reviewed this gloss, I was complaining about the scent, funny you mentioned it again as I forgot all about the scent now! hahaa I am getting used to it and I love the sparkle it gives to all my matte lipsticks :)

  26. What is that maroon you used? Plum Dressing? Twinks? Sketch? It is absolutely beautiful and it gives your eyes such depth. Loves it!

  27. B, actually it doesn't have a name! :( so sorry :( But i'm glad you like the shade, girl! You do have the 28pcs neutral palette right? I'm sure its there!

  28. looking pretty nikki!
    oo and dont you just love maybelline's Volum' Express Cat Eyes?

  29. LyNn, I love the Volum' Express Cat Eyes!!! I haven't reviewed it yet and I've used it less than a week and I'm super loving it!
