FOTD: Quick Pink

I've got no time to dry my hair and I only have 20 minutes. Uhm.... I chose to do my makeup instead so here goes:

After cleansing and toning:

  • MAC Mineralize Satinfinish Foundation in NC 35 mixed with Olay Regenerist Day Cream (used as tinted moisturizer) and set with MAC Select Sheer Powder in NC30
  • Contour and Blush using Coastal Scents palette
Blush: Elegant Minerals in Pink Glow as a blush/highlight

Brows: MAC brow pencil in Lingering

Eyes: Tightline with Kryolan Dark brown and use MAC Cream Color Base in Shell as a base for eyeshadow to hold and the skintone color of the coastal scents palette to highlight browbone

Eyeshadow: Smashbox e/s in Smashin Starlit from lashline to 3/4 of the way below the crease and then MAC e/s in Swish from that portion where Smashin' Starlit stops up to just above the crease. Blend colors for a seamless look with a soft blending brush.

Mascara: Curl lashes with lash curler and apply 3 coats of mascara (I used Lancome Colour Visage)

Lips: MAC Lipstick in Hollywood Nights

Eye detail:

Closed eyes. I wanted something earthy but added a pop of color to match the bright pink lips that I planned to wear today. :)

Oh... here's why my eyes are forever closed on pictures:

Owie! I accidentally had an eye-poking accident last Saturday while I removed my false lashes. I poked my eye instead. Owwie! Good thing nothing's wrong with it except that red mark, which would be gone in a few weeks. I had it checked already and the doctor told me I'll be okay. Horray!

hi nikki! my eye's getting better. the redness has subsided and hopefully there would be no scarring.

i was worried though because i thought it would affect my vision. it didn't!
