If you caught my post last July 4, you know I just turned 40. Looking back, I met decade milestones with different reactions. I was excited when I turned 20 thinking I’m no longer in the teenage category; I cried as I advanced to 30 thinking shit! I’m old; Now that I’m 40, who’s old?
Save for free fireworks, I welcomed yet another year rather quiet. Hubzilla and I watched the movie Tammy (starring my fave actress Melissa McCarthy) then we headed to Romano’s Macaroni Grill at Ala Moana for late lunch. After that we went to Macy’s and picked up my gift from him. Not another makeup so I went straight to jewelry section and scored a pair of diamond hoops (happy wife, happy life). Our last stop was the Burberry store where I happily gifted myself a hobo bag. Lipstick, purse, jewelry: those are my kryptonite.
On to my laid-back fab (as I would call it) OOTD. Gotta have some blue on the 4th so I matched my blue henley fold-up shirt (Target find!) with a pair of black shorts. Other deets on photo below (clickable links)
Next is FOTD (reviews are linked). I’m in between shade at the moment (fading from self-tanner but still dark to go back to “winter shade”). I know you get what I mean. So to remedy the situation, I mixed Guerlain Joli Teint (Moyen/Medium) and Estee Lauder Double Wear Light for my foundation and then I set it with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder (Diffused Light). To add summer warmth, I applied Guerlain Terracota Bronzer on the side of my cheeks, forehead and jawline. For some cheek color, I used Nars Blush (Orgasm). For my eye makeup, I used Marc Jacobs Highliner Crayon Blacquer to tightline my upper lash line and (Plum)age as base for eyeshadow and also for waterline. For the rest of my eye makeup, I decided to use Urban Decay Vice 2 palette. I applied Betrayal (lilac) on my lids, Rewind (brown) on my crease, Toxic (copper; also on crease as transition shade), Habit (flesh; for brow bone). For my upper lashes, I used Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara (part of Sephora VIB b’day freebie) and Clinique for my bottom lashes. Finally for my lips, I settled for Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy in Orchid 505 (pending review).
’til next OOTD/FOTD,
