FOTD #7: First day of work

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.

Base

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).

Eyes

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.

Face/cheeks

I used Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Pink Quartz as a highlighter and used Tarte Exposed to give a subtle flush to my cheeks.
