I haven't been posting LOTD's in a while, oh wainnaminute... for quite some time. I'm giving my face much of a rest and resulting to my usual minimal makeup of mascara, brows, lip and cheek tint, plus powder. It's the skin-breathing stage now, I thought to give my face a bit of a rest from months being splashed on with makeup and then working out after. It does save me an hour and a half of time too,
Just yesterday, I had a bit more of time in my hands so I thought, maybe it's time to get the brushes out and practice. It's still one of those neutral bridal looks. I'm in my neutral phase now, and I've been told I've been doing like peachy pinks or pinks or peaches or pastels a lot. It's quite funny. I always think of myself as a bronzey type of girl in my palette since I like a lot of warm colors. Anyway, in this LOTD, it's a bit more beige on the eyes and peach on the cheeks and lips, so pretty neutral overal. I kept the look matte since I'll be going to pole after.
No primer on my face, say whatwasithinking and I'm going to pole after. Just basic skincare. :)

It kinda felt different wearing a full face of makeup again, but gladly I survived and so did my makeup even after a day of running errands and ending it with a pole class. I like that it's a pretty clean look. The subtle smokiness does not make the eyes disappear in photos but it still qualifies in the natural category. Maybe in a real event, I could tame the darkness and add a bit of smoke.
Hmm... maybe I can try to set aside like 30 minutes for quick makeup fastbreaks for myself when I feel like looking like a girl. Yay, still on my neutral phase but hey, let's all be pretty.
