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:

Travel Beauty Essentials (Winter edition)

Wassup, I am back with another post! I recently went on a trip to Melbourne and I thought of doing a blogpost of what makeup I’d bring there. But then things got crazy so I wasn’t able to make the post. So now that I am back, I am able to gather my thoughts and do a post that will hopefully be helpful to travellers.

I was in Melbourne for 9 days, it was near the end of winter. Cold, but not snowing. So I opted for dewy foundations/tinted moisturizer and decided to leave the powder behind. I made sure I had all lip color options, a pink, a red, a nude. As much as possible, I stayed away for mattes because it will dry my lips more. I brought a gloss because I know it will save me in the cold weather. I had two cheek options too- one cream and one powder. I brought cream shadow sticks and an eyeshadow palette. As for brushes, I brought a buffing brush, a blush brush, stippling brush and 2 eye brushes. I was able to fit everything in 3 pouches – that include skincare, body care and makeup. I was quite impressed with my packing skills if I may say.

Nars Audacious Lipsticks in Vera and Raquel (Review and Swatches)

I’ve been on a roll the past weeks. I think this January is the most I have posted in a month. I have a lot products in the back burner so I hope I could sustain this.

Okay, so for this post I will talk about NARS Audacious lipsticks. NARS released this new range of lipsticks Fall 2014 in celebration of its 20th anniversary. I’ve already mentioned Vera in this post.  It comes in 40 shades and I will review 2 for you here, Raquel and Vera.

Bold and Berry

All About Plum 3

Winter is not yet over so I think it’s still not too late to talk about  about bold lips. Most specifically, berry lips.  I love dark lips. Be it red or plum/berry – I really love the look of it. It’s a great color that can easily brighten up your bare face. I remember seeing Heart Evangelista on TV 4 years ago sporting a beautiful vampy lip and I thought to myself: I want a lip stick like that. I asked my aunt from the US to buy me my very first MAC lipstick, REBEL. I loved it so much that I didn’t bother to buy or look  for any other plum lipsticks. It’s a dark purple that looks great opaque and looks great when sheered out as well. It also fades gorgeously into a light purple/pinkish stain. This is probably the “driest” of them all when it comes to texture. It’s a satin so it has a bit of a shine, but it feels a little bit drying on the lips as I wear it throughout the day.

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.

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!
