FOTD - Mostly L'Oreal

L'Oreal has surprised me a lot this year.
I mean, I have used L'Oreal mascaras for years (Classic waterproof Voluminous is still my favorite, btw.), but that was about it.
Revlon used to get my undivided attention (drugstore-wise), but before I know it, I have hauled quite a few L'Oreal stuff lately.
My daily favorites includes True Match Lumi Foundation, Infallible eyeshadows, and Shine Caresse Lip Stains.

It is rather interesting L'Oreal owns lots of different brands including high-end ones like Yves Saint Laurent, Lancome and Giorgio Armani, and we soon find the affordable versions on the drugstore shelves.
While it is a valid question to ask whether one gigantic company owns everything is ethical or not, I, who is a bargain shopper yet seeks for good quality have no big complaints.

The other day, I was putting on my usual face and realized the makeup items are mostly made by L'Oreal.
An easy no frill look, I didn't even add blush.


"Mostly L'Oreal" look
Of course, this is NOT a sponsored post. ;p



(Clockwise)
L'Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation W 1-2
L'Oreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara Black
NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
L'Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner Black
Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre 37 Merveille
L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow Sultry Smoke
L'Oreal Colour Caresse Shine Stain Infinite Fuchsia & Pink Perseverance 


(Sure, I had to use a couple of non-L'Oreal items. 
Even "Mostly Mozart" Music Festival includes some Haydn and Beethoven, you know?)


Here is a close-up picture.


As usual, I darkened my folds using the Smoldering eyeliner concentrating on the outer corners then blended with the Inflallible shade. Fished with mascara. Easy Peasy!
I mixed two Wet Shine Stain colors to create a softer and more wearable dark pink. 

(On the side note, the Chanel powder is by no means a setting powder since the glitters are quite big and visible. I dusted it lightly over my forehead and cheekbones to avoid a flat look.)



Hope you have enjoyed this simple yet defined look.
I have received a couple of email requests for my daily smokey eyes so I might blog soon with step-by-step pictures, but frankly I don't know if that would make much of a post since it is painfully simple and easy to do as a explained it here.

Thanks for looking!
Wish everyone a wonderful new week. :)
