Christmas FOTD (Face of the Day)

I hope you and your loved ones had a fabulous Christmas observance, what with the gifts and food!

I am already winding down as I write this post. As in usual, moi was the self- appointed chef so I needed a quick and hassle-free makeup today. Here’s what I came up with:

For my face, I used Cover Fx Brightening Foundation Primer, and Philosophy The Supernatural Hybrid Makeup SPF20 (it’s a tinted moisturizer, review here) as foundation. To control oil throughout the day, I relied on my new skin hero Origins Zero Oil Instant Matte Finish (review here). To camouflage my dark under-eye circles, I dabbed The Body Shop Under Eye Brightening Concealer. Then I set everything with Bare Escentuals’ mineral veil.

For my eye makeup, I used NYX eye primer, Smashbox Classifyed Palette (grayish-purple on lids, dark purple on outer corner and outer 1/3 of lower lashline, light brown on crease), MAC Blacktrack Fluidline for winged eye effect, Cargo Better-than-Waterproof Mascara, and Anastasia brow kit for my brows & shimmer white on inner corner.

For my cheeks and cheekbones, I used Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush (Dollface) and Park Ave Princess as bronzer (both reviews here).

Finally for my lips, I just swiped lip gloss from LORAC.

I skipped hairspray and tools and went for a simple and relaxed ponytail hairstyle. I’m a busy bee as you can tell…

It’s downtime! How do you relax?
I enjoy watching 3D movies at home. The best so far I have seen (1) The Smurfs for vibrance and clarity (2) Final Destination (3) Resident Evil for effects galore

And for our traditional movie-thon since its release in 2008, Four Christmases!

I’ll be back to the blog grind tomorrow. Ciao!

xoxo
