Late Summer Day with Essence - 12th Blogtober

Welcome to FOTD Friday!  This look was all about two things, a pair of lashes, and a shimmer bronzer strips.

Apologies.  I am a bad blogger and didn't record nor photograph the other products I have on my face.  Not even the beautiful blusher I was wearing.  So technically this can't be counted as a FOTD.  Yet I don't want to waste these pictures, hence this post...

  • Essence, Sun Club Allover Shimmer for Eyes, Face n Body #01 Ibiza Sun for Blondes, Lighter Skin
  • Dolly Wink, Lashes #10 Sweet Cat - full review here (link).  Love.

The Essence bronzer strips - definitely not a face product for me, but amazing as eye shadows.  Essence makes really affordable products, this particular one could be limited Summer collection.  It is very loose in the pan now, I figure it will fall apart any moment.

There are six shades in the palette.  Each of them has a high shimmer, near metallic finish and blends amazingly together or on the own, on the skin.

The 6 shades swatched on back of my hand.  I used the lightest in the inner corners.  The 2nd from the right on lids, and 2nd from the left on the outer lids.

Eyeshadow placement, before putting on lashes:

I'm GUESSing the items for the rest of my face, don't quote me on that, it is as wild a guess as you can make. 
  • Naruko, Narcissus Total Defense BB Cream Essence
  • MAC, Studio Sculpt Concealer #NC20
  • Za, Skin Beauty Two Way Foundation #21
  • Sleek Makeup, Contour Kit #Light
