FOTD: Too Faced Sweet Peach palette

Long time no post! My SephoraPH order arrived in less than 2 days so my Too Faced sweet peach palette  is now here. I was so excited for it since I was lemming for this for almost a year. I had the time to play with it yesterday and took too many photos so I thought I’d create a post here. I know my blog hasn’t been active for quite a while. So sorry but I will try to be more active!

I went to a food tasting yesterday and did a light everyday peach eye look and actually got a compliment from the person who took my order at Serenitea. But for the photos below, I took the time to upgrade the look and popped on some false lashes for photography purposes. Sayang naman ang makeup ko.

Face:

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea in Light Medium Neutral

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer Light Sand (undereye) and Light Medium

Hourglass Blush in Diffused Light

Nyx Baked Blush in Ignite (apples of the cheeks)

Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow Palette for highlight and a little bit of contour

Eyes:

Nars Pro Prime Eye primer

Too Faced Sweet peach palette

Benefit ka-brow! eyebrow cream cel 04

Benefit Gimme Brow brow gel 03

MAC Fluidline Gel in Past twilight

Red Cherry DW lashes

A little more detail on how I did my eyes: 

After priming my eyes, I topped my lids with White Peach to remove the tackiness of the primer. I then used Peaches n Cream on my crease then added Georgia on top and mixed the two on my crease. Make sure to blend very well. On the lid, I used Just Peachy and topped it with Luscious on the center of the lid.  I used a combination of Tempting and Peach Pit to define my outer V. Then, I went back to my crease and used Candied Peach to give it a more peachy look. I popped Nectar on my inner corner and dragged it up to give me a more wide-eyed look. I used a brown liner and also smudged Peach Pit on my lower lashline. I lined my upper lashline with a dark brown gel liner and popped on some falsies from Red Cherry lashes in DW.

Lips:

Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Blush Palette (Updated)


Sweet Cheeky Spot 3

I got this palette for 1,900 pesos at Benefit Mall of Asia last November. If you’re one of the few people who were able to snag this, lucky you! This retails for 36USD in the US and in my opnion, the selling price of 1,900 pesos is not bad. Considering the tax, price difference is not that much compared to other Benefit products. And it’s limited edition, plus you get 5 blushes, 1 bronzer and 1 highlighter. A good deal, right?

Sweet Cheeky Spot 1

I don’t own any of Benefit’s box o’ powders and that gave me the incentive to snag this set. I was not suppose to get this because I ordered the Hourglass Ambient Blush palette. But when I saw Benefit Philippine’s IG post last November and saw the price in the comments section, I made it a mission to get one. It was just too tempting to resist.

FOTD #6: Glam Makeup (plus bonus hair tutorial)

I haven’t posted an FOTD in a while but I have something exciting in store for you in this post. We had our office Christmas party last Monday and the theme was red carpet glam. We never had a party that’s this formal before so I was excited to do my makeup. I didn’t want to have my hair fixed so I searched for youtube tutorial and decided to do Estee’s hair tutorial. It’s quite easy to do, just make sure to prep your hair if you have long and thick hair like mine. All you need is a headband, bobby pins, texturizing spray and hair spray to hold everything in place. Watch her tutorial, it’s so easy peasy!

FOTD #4 ( and some changes in my skincare and makeup routine)

My skin has been acting up recently. I’m not breaking out in particular but I see whiteheads sprouting in places that has been clear before. I think my skin needs time to breathe so I replaced some items in my skincare routine and stopped wearing heavy makeup.
