I was dreading this day. January 5. That means I have to go back to work. NOOOOOOO. /sadface. Our office has a shutdown and the 3-week vacation flew by so quickly I felt it was not enough. Who’s with me on this?
So to get me going last Monday, I decided to document it and kick off 2015 with my seventh FOTD post. Painting my face with makeup was the only thing that got me excited for work.
See the products I used after the cut!
I just got this pre-loved foundation from a fellow beauty enthusiast via Beauty Exchange Philippines Facebook groups – Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk Foundation in 4.5. I really love the finish of this, it’s not dewy but it doesn’t look too matte. It has medium to high coverage though. I used Clinique Airbrush Concealer in Neutral Fair (not in photo) to brighten my undereye area and to cover the redness around my nose, I used Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard (not in photo).
I used Majolica Majorca Brow Pencil BR660 on my brows. For eyeshadow, I went for a neutral eye as usual. I used my newly acquired Lorac Pro Palette, which I am really loving at the moment. The texture is buttery (that’s almost bordering to powdery) and so pigmented. I used MAC Utterly Becoming paintpot to prime my lids then I used a mixture of Taupe and Mauve on the crease and Champagne on the lid. Watchout on this shade though, it has a lot of fallout. Make sure to pat this shadow carefully on the lid or do your base first. I had a hard time removing the fallout and just them be. I used Urban Decay Eyeliner in Demolition which is a matte brown to line my upper lashline and waterline. I also smudged Espresso on the waterline. I used a new mascara I am testing, the DiorShow Iconic Overcurl Mascara. I’ve been using it for a week now and I am still experimenting on how it’s best used but so far I like it. It gives volume, but not so much length.
I used Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Pink Quartz as a highlighter and used Tarte Exposed to give a subtle flush to my cheeks.
Nyx Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee.
Have you used any of the products I mentioned? How did you like it?
