FOTD: Shiney & Liney

I read Bea’s (The Dalaga Project) post on more “lifted” winged liner last night and felt like giving it a try today. I essentially failed, but I did draw a thicker line than usual. I also wanted to pair it with natural, dewy skin, and I do think I achieved so I figured I would just go ahead and share this.

In the photo below you’ll get a better idea of the shape I ended up with, which is something I actually used to wear loads. I couldn’t resist filling in the space from the tip of the wing to the center of my lid, so I suppose the lifted wing will have to wait for another day.

I went with dewy skin because I thought it would bring a bit of freshness to the cat eye, which usually looks mod or Dita Von Teese-y. I was also just feeling good about my skin today. Haha

Love/Hate: Stila Smudge Sticks

Hi guys! Sorry about the absence of a Sunday post this past weekend. I don’t really hold myself to a strict schedule when it comes to uploading posts, but I do especially like posting on Sundays. I like to imagine someone reading my blog on a Sunday afternoon or evening over a cup of tea or something. Makes me happy. Anyway, I will try to gather some photos of the look I wore on Sunday (attended a wedding), but I was in a massive rush getting ready and too busy having fun at the reception so… yeah. I’ve been an irresponsible blogger yet again. Buuut, I promise to try harder next time! For now, it’s back to regular programming…P1170376Allow me to clarify the title to this post: I love Stila Smudge Sticks but I hate how expensive they are. One Smudge Stick will set you back 20 USD (around 900 Php locally) for a measly 0.28g of product. I have, however, been pretty lucky with these things. The first one I tried came with my In The Light Palette (review) and the set I am featuring in this post was pasalubong from my mom from a recent trip to the States. P1160082She picked it up at Nordstrom Rack for just 14.97 USD discounted from 25.00 USD for FIVE Smudge Sticks, plus an awesome tin. This is exactly why shopping in the US is crazy awesome (not to mention nakakabaliw)
