Prices vary from IDR 155.000- IDR 390.000







Alright, now let me share with you what I received.
It comes in this cute packaging.
Love the whole design.



I received:
A lipstick, a foundation, an eyeliner, and an eyeshadow.




FOUNDATION

This is a cream foundation. It has a creamy texture with a powdered result. It is easy to apply onto my skin. I tried using sponge but i prefer using foundation brush. The pigmentation is good therefore it works as a concealer for me as well. Usually, creamy foundation is good for dry skin. So if you have a dry skin or normal, give this one a try. I love the size that is so cute and I can bring this everywhere I go. I will start using this for my makeup client especially if they have a dry skin! The price for this is IDR 250.000


As you can see from the picture below, the texture is super creamy and good pigmentation that has a good coverage. The quality is build-able according to your personal preference. 


EYELINER.

This I received is in a white color which is good since I have a small eyes and this is one technique that i used on my clients to make their eyes to look bigger. It is to apply a white eyeliner on the waterline and slightly on the inner corner.  The quality of this eyeliner is good, smooth texture and easy to apply.
Price is IDR 110.000



EYESHADOW

This is my favorite. You all know that high pigmentation is the number one quality i look for in every makeup product. This has a silky and velvety texture that gives that high pigmentation. Easy to apply and blend. The color pay off is superb!
Price is IDR 175.000



LIPSTICK 

I am a lipstick lover. The lipstick is moisturizing and the color has a medium pigmentation.
This is great if you are not that confidence in wearing bold lipstick because the quality of this lipstick is build-able. It comes in 4 range of: matte, glossy, discrete matte and discrete glossy. 
Price is IDR 180.000




A QUICK MAKEUP TUTORIAL

I want to share with you on how I would apply these items on my makeup.

Let's begin with the eye makeup.

1. Apply the Bo.ho makeup eyeshadow all over the eyelids.
Look how vibrant the color is.
Here is a sample of alternative black as smokey eyes.



2. Apply a soft brown matte eyeshadow above the purple one, then blend well.



3. Apply the same purple Bo.ho eyeshadow on the bottom lash line,
then apply the while eyeliner from Bo.ho cosmetic on the waterline and slightly on the inner corner.



A simple steps for a basic smokey eyes look from me ;)




False lashes are from Gwiyomi.

4. Apply the foundation. There is nothing right or wrong on how to apply the foundation.
As you can see the shade is slightly whiter than my skin tone, but no worries, I know how to balance it out! It also covers my acne and pigmentation. 


5. Apply a powder that is darker than your skintone, 1 or 2 level darker, so it is always best to have 3 shades at home. Then I added some bronzer around my face and of course I have to contour.
Dont forget the blush and the Bo.ho lipstick!


Here is the final look!
Eyeshadow, foundation, eyeliner and lipstick are from
BO.HO Makeup.



Please ignore the acne and skin hahaha
PMS is every girls' best friend!
