FOTD of the other day: trying out the new stash/awkward selfies.

I don’t know if I mentioned this before but the reason I don’t have too many tutorials (not that I’m really good with makeup or anything but I just really like wearing em) or look of the day kinda posts is because I suck at taking photos of myself. I always try to after putting on makeup, thinking these could be beauty blogging material, but I delete them right away as soon as I see them (they suck big time huhu). But the other day the selfie gods were kinda nice to me, I was able to find some decent lighting and relatively un-awkward photos turned up. So here’s what I looked like the other day, as a result of playing around with the new stuff I got from the last trip. πŸ™‚

DW-DSCN5190Pardon the messy bed and background, but here’s a rundown of what’s on my face:

  • Stila’s One Step Correct Serum as primer
  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in No. 53 Light Beige
  • 3CE Full Cover Concealer in 002
  • Hourglass Ambient Dim Light to set concealer
  • 3CE Duo Color Face Blush in #Make Me Blush on my cheeks
  • Hourglass Ambient Radiant Light around the edges of my face for a very light contour
  • Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Bare Study all over my lid
  • Maybelline the Rocket Volum’ Express on my lashes
  • ELF Eyebrow Kit for my brows–the dark gel on the lower part and edges of the brows, the lighter powder on the inner corners of the brow
  • Nichido Clear Eyebrow Gel to set my brows
  • 3CE Jumbo Lip Crayon inΒ  #Oh, My Pink
  • Hourglass Ambient Incandescent Light on my brow bone, the tops of my cheeks and down the bridge of my nose for highlight

How’s Monday treating ya?

  1. I’m gonna use this for inspiration on how to use the Ambient Lighting Palette! I just got it for my birthday, and it’s beautiful, but I’m kind of intimidated by it, haha.
