FOTD – Sept. 17, 2013


I don’t post looks very often because I feel like I’m awful at capturing the colours well. I also sometimes think that I look the same in all of the pictures… but I guess you can see the difference when they’re placed side by side! Here’s what I had on today yesterday. I reviewed a lot of these products recently, actually. The Clinique CC cream review should be up in a few days so watch out for that! :)

Base: Clinique CC Cream mixed with Vichy Normaderm Teint, MUD Blue Corrector #3, K Palette Zero Kuma Concealer, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, and Clinique Stay-Matte Pressed powder (translucent) with UD De-Slick sprayed over top to set

Cheeks: MAC Small Vanity blush

Eyes: L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush on the lids, MAC Espresso on the outer-V and on the lower outer lash line, Inglot shimmery pink on the inner corner, Fairyfrops Platinum mascara (waterproof variant), and Shu Uemura Hard 9 Eyebrow pencil in seal brown

Lips: Too Faced La Creme lipstick in Spice Spice Baby

I’ve oggled, sure, but I’ve never really owned a Chanel makeup item. I don’t skimp on my makeup purchases but I’ve just never happened to pick up anything from the brand… so what’s the story behind this particular acquisition? I have a close friend with a pretty awesome job. CBB5My dear kabarkada (Hi, I love you! Thank you. :* ) who works as an editor for a magazine received the Les Beiges Creme Belle Mine (pretty French name!) SPF 30/PA +++ as a sample and since she was not interested in trying it out herself, she asked if I would like it. Dear reader of my blog, can you imagine me ever saying no to that? I didn’t think so.
