Make Up Of The Day

My Sephora MOTD Makeup Haul

Sephora totally replaced my to go place for makeup when it first landed in Singapore. I’ve been a regular shopper there to satisfy my makeup addiction since then, almost never leaving Sephora without a purchase.  And it’s no surprise that I am a black card member with unlimited 10% off because I always hit the $250 mark to qualify for it.

So when I was offered credits to do a makeup haul from Sephora, I was more than happy to do so! I did try my best to keep within budget but I ended up spending some extra dollars.

Sephora Haul Fit For An MOTD

It’s not easy to decide on what to buy when there are thousands of choices out there! Hence, I decided to narrow it down to brands and picked enough items which allowed me to create a makeup look.

Kat Von D

I’ve picked up an eyeshadow palette in Rust and a Studded Kiss Lipstick in Adora from Kat Von D. Kat Von D is pretty new in our local shores, and is famous for its Tattoo Liner! I already have the liners, foundation, and concealer from this brand. Hence, I’m curious on how the other products perform so I’ve got two items!

Tarte

I love my Tarte blushers for its longevity and pigmentations that could be built up. The Tarteist Contour Palette is great as it has all the products you need for contour and highlight including a lovely blush shade!

Nudestix

This is a brand which I’ve yet to try. I picked up the Eyebrow Stylus which comes along with a gel. I would say it’s pricey for a brow product but I’m pretty much blown away by how soft the pencil is and the ease of use.

Makeup Of The Day With Sephora

My makeup of the day using mostly loots from this Sephora haul except for mascara and base! I really love how the Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Adora is such a wearable red! It’s suitable for everyday wear!!

FOTD: Colored Liner Look

IMG_3475.JPG
Here’s a really simple look that make use of colored eye liners on days when you’re too lazy to care about blending eyeshadows. Haha.

Especially now when eye liners are not just limited to black, browns or khaki colors. There’s a huge variety of colored eye liners available in the market now! Say pastel tones, metallic tones, both liquid and pencil formulations. Adding a pop of color to your eyes is a breeze now with so much choices out there!

IMG_3476.JPG
Here’s a close up look at the colored liner eye look that I’ve been doing very often these days. It’s basically just three lines of liners and a light shimmer eyeshadow to brighten and highlight the lid area.

Over here, I used a black liquid liner to line my eyes as per normal. I tend to draw the line slightly thicker. Then I used my Stila liquid liner in Periwinkle which is exclusive to Sephora and draw above the black liner. I overlapped the colored liner slightly over the black liner but I didn’t draw a full line.

The colored liner should be just be drawn about three quarters or four fifth of the black liner. Then I just add on a bit of black and join with the colored part near the inner corners. I only winged the black liner a bit but with the colored liner, I winged it more.

For the lower lash line, I used my gelpresso liner in Mint from Clio and line just half of the lower lash line. I didn’t line it fully as I do not want it to look too dramatic as it’s for a regular day look.

IMG_3474.JPG
I kept the liners to just under the fold of my eyelid so it’s more subtle. The colors can be seen more clearly only when I blink or look down.

I really love this look as it’s really fun and playful. You can mix up different colors combination to get different feel. I’m thinking to get more of the colored liquid liner from Stila as it’s really smudge proof and dries really fast! Plus it’s super easy to draw with the fine brush tip!

Hope this post is useful! Let’s all play with colored liners! 😉

FOTD Ft Evangelist Nobuto BB Cream

IMG_3413.JPG
Today’s FOTD is a very simple look which features bright pink lips. The easiest way to wear bold bright colors on the lips is to keep the rest of the face simple and clean. This is so we can have the focus on the lips. Defining brows is a must in all sort of looks but you can keep the eyes clean like what I did.

IMG_3415.JPG
I have received this Evangelist Nobuto BB Cream sample during the Tokey Luxey meet up last month. Have been trying it out for a couple of times and I like how it wears on the skin.

IMG_3414.JPG
Here’s a swatch of the bb cream. The texture is towards the runny type and not too thick which makes it easy to blend during application. You won’t have situations where it looks as if you applied too much just because the product is too thick. Which means you can also apply more if you find that the coverage is not enough for certain areas.

IMG_3410.JPG
Here’s a half face photo after applying the bb cream. You can see that it evens out the skin tone and it provides medium coverage to cover up redness and flaws. As I have mentioned, you can apply a little bit more product to up the coverage on required areas.

IMG_3411.JPG
The shade Ochre No1 suits me just nice. This BB cream can be used as a makeup base or as your foundation. What I usually do is that I’ll set it with either a loose powder or a two way cake if I wanted more coverage.

IMG_3412.JPG
A good base will brighten up your overall look and complements the colors you add on after. 🙂

The Evangelist Nobuto BB Cream is a top 3 product on Cosme and I think it lives up to that ranking!

FOTD: Simple Classic Look

Hi everyone! I’ve decided to start posting FOTDs regularly on the blog once more. Over the years, the style of how I do my makeup have changed and I think that by posting FOTDs is the best way to share the different style of makeup I spot.

classiclotd1

So here’s a simple classic look that I’ve been wearing most of the time when I go to work. For this look, I kept the eyes simple yet still defining it. I also use a highlighter on some of my features to brighten up the whole look.

classiclotdeyes

I lined my eyes with brown liner as I want a softer look as compared to using black, plus my current hair color is brown. I line only the upper lid as I don’t want it to be too dramatic.
I also matched my brows by filling it in using a brow mascara. And if you can notice, my mascara is also brown tone. I think it’s good to match colors when it comes to liner and lashes.
Eyeshadow wise, I just apply a nice shimmering highlight color to the lids and blend out any hard lines. This way, the eyes will still pop though there’s no color.

The lips would be the main point of this look. I opted for a classic coral with red tones, blotted it off as I don’t want it to be too bright and topped with a coral orange lip gloss. You can also change it to a bolder lip color and it will still look good. I like to match my blush to my lip color so I opted for a peachy coral blush.

Products on my face for this look:

YSL CC Cream in Lavender
YSL BB Cream in Light
Chanel Mat Lumiere Powder
M.A.C Blush in Prim and Proper from Liberty of London Collection
The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer
K-Palette One Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyepencil in Brown
Dollywink Mascara in Brown (Limited Edition)
Etude House Color My Brows in 03
Etude House Secret Highlighter
YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in 16
YSL Gloss Volupte in 204
