There are a couple of new makeup things I’ve been testing out and liking quite a bit. At the moment, I’m still developing a look to maybe present next for a video tutorial, today’s look is on its way there but I might amplify it a bit next time for video. This post will focus on one of these bits in particular, an item I already blogged about in 2011.
WHAT I HAVE ON, CLOCKWISE: NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator (Gleam), Laura Mercier Infusion de Rose Lip Balm, Fanny Serrano (original, no longer available) lash curler, NYX BB Cream, Catrice Sun Matte Bronzing Powder, L’Oreal False Lash Butterfly Waterproof Mascara, FS Features & Shades eyeshadow in “Frosted Chic”, Maybelline Fashion Brow mascara in Deep Brown, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in “Abu Dhabi” (reported dupe for Kylie Dolce) Php390, Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in “Sand Dune”, FS Features & Shades Kohl Eye Pencil in “Caramel”(Shade like MAC Brunette brow pencil, used for eyes and brows), FS Features & Shades Powder Foundation in “Mocha” (new packaging), Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush only to set FS powder under eyes (instructional video for brush and powder foundation here, pressing motion)
Without my even having to mention, you’ll spot that there’s a definite desert rose shade theme running through this selection. Please note that when I say Desert Rose theme I don’t mean the actual desert rose flower (which is actually a bright fuschia) but more of like my more naked, blushed, fictional take on a desert rose. I also particularly mention the preferred matte liquid lipstick formula I’ve loved for 5 years. Read on to see the look I put on today, it’s still wearable and natural, but I’ve switched up products a bit.
