#FaceFriday : Nerd Moi

Hello beauties, finally I have replaced my old pair of eyeglasses! This time, I went rimless. I like this particular style from Oakley Titanium, it’s so lightweight I can wear it all day!

#FaceFriday is just a fancy name for FOTD, in case you’re curious, haha! In here, I show you how I wear all the products I have reviewed in the past.

Call it laziness or lack of creativity but my idea of makeup for eyeglass wearers is to focus on the lips. After all, those precious eyes are partly hidden.  I go for bright pinks or reds. The “star” of this post is YSL Rouge Volupte Shine 5 Fuchsia in Excess. It’s a bright hot pink lippy with glossy finish and enviable pigmentation.

For my foundation, I chose YSL All-in-One BB Cream Skintone Perfector (medium shade). It’s not holy grail status but I like how it evened out my skintone. 

I skipped concealing my under eyes, the haggardness of it all ain’t obvious when I wear eyeglasses. While I let YSL BB cream meld into my skin, I proceeded with eye makeup. My current go-to for shaping my eyebrows is Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade (dark brown)

Then I opened my dresser and nonchalantly chose Too Faced A Few of My Favorite Things for my eye makeup, cheek, and bronzer. I haven’t used it in a while so why not. I applied Coquet on my eyelids, Woolen mittens on crease, Ooh la orchid on bottom lash line, and Cream  colored peonies on brow arch.

I went back to finish my face and set that BB of a cream! My no-nonsense pick was Hourglass Ambient Ligting Powder (Dim Light).

Then I turned to Too Faced A Few of My Favorite Things again and chose Melt into Spring as my blush and Chocolate Soleil for bronzer.

As a finale, I tightlined my upper lash line with Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel and then coated my bottom lashes with my holy grail-to date, Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara. I also curled my upper lashes and applied Clinique High Impact Waterproof Mascara.

Here’s the nerd moi singing “I can see clearly now, the rain is gone. I can see all obstacles in my way. Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind. It’s gonna be a bright, bright, Sun-shiny day.”

    Love your new glasses. I wish I could go rimless, but with a toddler I need something sturdy for now. Love the lip color

      Thanks Kim. Yeah, rimless is so delicate, I have to make sure it's not touching any surface other than my face 🙂

    I love those glasses – I am a glasses wearer too… yay – Nerds and Geeks Rule. I tend to play up my lips a lot too.

    I was swatching the hourglass powders in sephora today and had a hard time talking myself out of buying one 😛 You look great with glasses!

      Get at least one Hourglass powder, it lasts for a while. Thanks Miranda!

    Love your glasses! I just ripped a contact and hurt my eye so I'll be stuck in glasses this weekend. I'll definitely be using your makeup tips!
