it's my very first LOTD shot and it took a lot of shots to come up with a clear and great-looking up-close shot of my lips lol. either i took a shot half of my lips or too far from the camera lens haha. am not used to capturing my lips only, as you may observe on my FOTDs. my lips are almost always unfocused as i concentrate on making my eyes look more noticeable. it's time…

i must say i missed greens. although i've noticed, darker/deeper green suits me better than bright greens compared to blues which i feel comfortable using either bright or dark shades.

i incorporated a purple liner to liven up a bit more the green but the glitter isn't adhering as i'd expected to. Shu Uemura D…

i think this is more appropriate for clubbing but i can't so why not in the office? am just crossing my fingers not to bump into the big boss and make her eyes pop. LOL

"old Hollywood glamour"-ish

i went for a neutral look today. i initially tried silver+black smokey eye a try but i was in a hurry to blend that i messed it up big time haha. i went for an easier to finish look so here you go.




*pardon the last two poses, i was making a call while camwhoring. talk about multitasking haha. btw if you're wondering what am wearing on my nails, it's OPI Flashbulb Fuschia.

what i like about this look is that it sort of reminds me of old Hollywood glamour - defined eyes with the entire lid highlighted (with highlight color, literally) and prominent lips. i opted to go with orangey li…

i suppose it could still be brighter, like electric blue lighter as opposed to glittery light blue, but i did a quick color matching of the colors after i got off the shower. you see, i usually plan colors i will wear the night before lol. the colors are a bit similar too, i should have piled on more of Blue but i ran out of time so it looked like one color after blending lol. don't follow suit ladies! blend carefully, don't be like MereMakeupManiac haha. speaking …

oh, beautiful nightmare!
