FOTD Friday - Arabic in Pink

I took the inspiration of this look off one of my favourite youtuber, and altered the colour combination.  I also wanted to give some products I got from a nycmakeuplover1's blog sale (link here) a good try.

Confession.  I do not have a mirror wide enough, nor enough sight-width to look at both of my temples simultaneously.  Hence the two eyes ARE NOT symmetrical, or at least, not as symmetrical as I would like them to be.  Anyhow, this is a practice, and my skills are many more practices before reaching perfection, if that day would come!

Excuse my hair.

Warning.  This is heavily loaded with pictures!

Regret.  I shaved off the tails of my brows for the sake of this look and they still haven't grown back fully!!?!?!?!?!?!?

If you would like to see what I have used, please read on.  

  • Neutrogena, Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup #40 Nude
  • Sheer Cover, Duo Concealer in Light/Medium
  • Bobbi Brown, Sheer Finish Loose Powder #Pale Yellow
  • Benefit, Hoola Bronzing Powder
  • Lavshuca, Powder Compact Eyebrow #LB-1
  • Tarte, Amazonian Clay Long-wear Blush #Flush
  • Addiction, Blush #Romantic - not in this picture, please see below

Inglot, Under Makeup Base - a rather dry, jelly type of the silicon gel primer.  not bad.  just not my cup of tea.  I prefer lighter, moisturising, lotion type of primer.

From left: Neutrogena foundation, the 2 shades of Sheer Cover concealer.

Benefit Hoola - Addiction Romantic is the top left pink in the palette - Tarte Flush

  • Canmake, Eyeshadow Base
  • Shiro Cosmetics, #Ever in Your Favor - I love the Hunger Games trilogy, and I bought the whole Shiro collection inspired by the Hunger Games.  I realise I have not yet do a haul post of them, so I'll probably do one with swatches asap.  
  • Shiro Cosmetics, #Wildflowers
  • Wet n Wild, Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio in #380B Walking on Eggshells - only the top highlight shade was used
  • MAC, Satin Eyeshadow #Shop n Drop - the deepest colour in the palette
  • Dolly Wink, Long Mascara
  • Sephora, Flashy Liner Waterproof #11 Vegetal Green
  • Kiss Me, Heroine Make Liquid Eyeliner
  • Lakme, Nine to Five Kohl Ultimate

Canmake blended over my little beauty mark, inside of forearm.

free hand graffiti on the back of my hand. just for the sake of swatching XD

  • False Lashes #007 - see my haul post here.  I am LOVING falsies!

  • Momo, Eyebrow Powder #02
  • Daiso, Automatic Eyebrow Pencil #Brown

I did two versions of lip colours, one in pink, one nude.  I prefer the nude one more, hence the cover picture is in nude.  But you can see my face with pink lips later.

  • Shiro Cosmetics, Intertubes #Nyan Cat
  • Essence, Mini Lipgloss Set #04 London Calling - only used the shimmery shade

Nyan Cat - gloss over Nyan Cat - Gloss

The nude version:

  • MAC, Cremesheen Lipstick #Creme d'Nude - sorry it melted... i should depot it into a paltte soon.  gross looking :S
  • MAC, Lipglass #Almondine

OKAY.  Now comes more pictures, hope you enjoy~
