happy Tuesday everyone! i am pleased with myself this morning, as i woke up instantly when my alarm went off - even though i really was tempted to sleep some more! *pats my back* hmn, it could probably be due to the fact that tomorrow is a public holiday (Deepavali) so i felt like it's a Friday! (^_^)
last weekend, the creative side of me sort of got awakened, giving birth to this look - tutti fruitty. i recently acquired MAC Hot Paprika (from Styledriven Collection) and i was playing with it. i really love the hue, it's nothing like anything in my makeup stash. it's kinda orangey red, very pretty and flattering on my skintone. and well, it does look like paprika but a bit lighter, i really love it. the pigmentation is awesome too, but then again i usually don't get disappointed with MAC eyeshadow color payoff! i'll review that product on another post.
(pardon the not so clear resolution, as this was taken with an iPhone cam only)
anyway, i created this look to steer away (only for a little while) from dark eyes. i know i love those looks but sometimes i need a breather from them. (^_^) i used MAC Goldmine on the inner lid, MAC Bitter on the center, MAC Hot Paprika on the outer & lower lid and MAC Femme-Fi on the browbone area. i drew on thin eyeline (MAC Blacktrack), lined the waterline with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil in Zero and finished the look with Sex And The City Miranda lashes. i also tried on Soap & Glory Arch de Triumph on my brows and they're not bad at all, i'm liking it. i also got to try Sleek Pomegranate on my cheeks - it gave me a nice, natural glow flush! finally, i finished the look with a candy-licious lip combo of MAC Creme de la Femme and MAC Like Venus Dazzleglass. to prepare the face canvass, i used Dr. Jart Silver Label Rejuvenating Blemish Balm, MakeUpForEver Mat Velvet+ and Revlon PhotoReady concealer.
how's your creative side working lately? (^_^)
