(You would think that working as a freelancer makes you the owner of your own time, but you often find yourself being a slave instead.)
I even cancelled the dinner reservation today and decided to turn in early cause I am feeling a little wobbly.
Still, I wanted to share a quick FOTD with you. It is Friday after all! :)
This is a look I tried a couple days ago wearing Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupe Frivolous Pink.
I did not include an overall look in my previous swatch post, so this would make it up. ;)
Sweet & Sassy
(or so I think...)
My hair looks a little crazy in this picture.
I remember I spent too much time doing the eye makeup so I did not have that usual two minutes I need to blow dry my hair.
Normally I try to take at least ten pictures then pick a few that are decent (and this is necessary, trust me.), but I just pointed and shot a couple times and rushed out for work.
I was surprised that I still liked this hurried photo. Maybe it is because for some reason I look a little mischievous in it. ;)
Since the lip color is very pale and sweet, I wanted to do a strong catty eyes so the whole look would be balanced out.
This is the makeup products I used.
Skin Ceramic BB cream No.1 (sample; It was pretty nice). I did not set it with powder this time.
I darkened my folds with L'Oreal Voluminous Smoldering eyeliner (I think I do this almost everyday!), used the NARS Night Porter shade to give more depth and shimmer over the folds, and blended the whole thing with Lancome Erika F.
The lower water lines were lined with stila Kajal liner in Smoky Quartz color.
Finally, L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lash mascara was used for the lashes.
jane blushing cheeks Blushing Orchid Shimmer (I love love this color!)
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Frivolous Pink
(Ah, the ebony pencil is missing in the picture. I used it to fill in my brows.)
This is pretty much my go-to makeup look although I did put more time and efforts in the eye makeup.
I hope you have enjoyed this look.
(My guitar partner has been bugging me to put my pictures on YouTube, so I added this picture on one of our music videos as a cover. If this doesn't boost up the views, he is a dead man. ;p)
Do you have a signature makeup look that you always go for?
Where do you emphasize, the eyes or the lips? :)
Wish everyone a happy & healthy weekend.
