FOTD: Old and New

(Ahem, next time I will remember to dry my hair before taking pictures.)

There are already plenty of FOTDs on this blog as I always try to include one in my review posts. Not that I am trying to start a new blog series or anything, but I will be adding standalone look posts from now on. This would help me to post regularly and motivate me to be more creative in my daily routines. I am hoping this attempt will encourage me to dig deeper in my makeup stash, too.

Today I put some new makeup items into work for the first time. It wasn't easy as I had initially thought because there was a fundamental obstacle such as the wrong foundation shade. My all-time favorites and silent workhorses came into play to make this look work, though.

Products used
3. Skin Food Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder (available on eBay)
4. Rouge Bunny Rouge Highlighting Powder Goddess
5. Cargo Blush Louisiana
8. Peri Pera Wholly Deep Jewel Pot Brilliant Peach (available on eBay)
9. Prestige Auto Liner Black
10. Etude House Pink Skull Curl Fix Mascara (available on eBay)
11. Chanel Rouge Allure Palpitante
(Not pictured) Ebony drawing pencil was used for eyebrows. I am also wearing 1 Day Acuvue Define in Natural Shine (available here). 

Giorgio Armani Designer Lift Foundation is rather amazing - natural, long lasting, and comfortable on the skin, but alas, it is at least two shades darker than something I would usually pick up for myself. Once applied, however, the color kind of adjusts itself that it doesn't look all that bad. Plus I used a heck of highlighters both underneath (Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer - most delicate opalescent shimmer, reviewed here) and over (Rouge Bunny Rouge Highlighting Powder) the foundation. Skin Food Peach Sake is an excellent silicone based loose powder that deserves a separate review. I finished off the look with Chanel Rouge Allure Palpitante which is a classic pinky red that never disappoints me. 

Hope you enjoyed this look. Happy holidays everyone!
