Face of the Day (FOTD) attempt

Seems I haven't quite mastered the self-shot. Perhaps I just didn't put enough effort into practice during the MySpace years, and so I haven't yet figured out the most flattering lighting (story of my life!) or "slimming" camera angles. Nevertheless, here we are....

1.) Foundation: NARS SheerGlow in Deauville
2.) Blush: Bourjois Rose Ambré
3.) Bronzer: Benefit Hoola (cheek contour)
4.) Eye base: Painterly Paintpot
5.) Eyeliner: MAC Teddy eye kohl (in hindsight I probably would have gone with black to achieve a little less of a sleepy look)
6.) Mascara: Revlon Grow Luscious
7.) Lipstick: MAC Viva Glam Gaga (the first)

Simple, quick, easy peasy. This is the type of face I'd slap on to go to work. Can't usually be bothered with "blending my crease" or "darkening my outer V" at 6:30 a.m. Painterly Paintpot is my saviour.

In other news... gave the blog a slight facelift so that I'd feel older than 12! :)
I prefer this simple design - and the box is quite fitting for me since I usually have something either beauty or fashion related on its way to me in the post. Let me know what you think!

Thanks for reading! xo


  1. awww u look lovely.. That gaga lippe (the first.. hehehe) does NOT look food on me at alll =P

    And great design!

  2. That gaga lipstick looked like death on me. However, it looks like pure perfection on you!

  3. @Delyteful Speaks - Thank-you darling! And too bad about VGGaga, I thought it might be one of those universally flattering colours! Maybe give it a second shot? ;)

  4. @peony - Aw, thank-you! I didn't realize so many people disliked VGGaga! (Well, only 2 people commented on this post technically, but I'm sure there's more where you two came from!) :)
