FOTD & NOTD – Neutrals & Purples (Jan 26 2013)
Most of you guys know already that I usually don’t do FOTDs in my blog, so definitely this is my first time. Despite the fact that I love makeup and I love doing my own makeup, I still believe that I do not have the best technique/skills. This, honestly, is what prevents me in posting my own FOTDs. Call me shallow, perfectionist, or whatever, I don’t mind, but I’m just not confident because from all of the FOTDs that I’ve seen in other blogs, their techniques/makeup/FOTDs are just great.
But still, I want to give it a try, and also, most of the comments (requests) that I got from the previous giveaway entry that I did, asked me for EOTDs, FOTDs & NOTDs, so I’m just giving you guys what you wanted with the best of my abilities (lol)

Sorry for the quality of these pics. I was using my iphone’s front cam.
My digicam was with my sister. We traded for a day. My Digicam for her DSLR
That night, as mentioned, I decided to deviate from my usual lighter shades to the darker ones in the said palette. Though I really dig neutral shades, I’m not really into darker neutrals, except when I feel like experimenting. Just so happens that on that particular night, I felt like doing the exact same thing.
From the Lorac Pro palette, I used the following shades:
Eyelids – Garnet
Crease – Taupe (First), Sable (Second), Espresso (Outer)
Lower Lashline – Gold
Highlight (Browbone) – Cream
Highlight (Inner Tear duct)- Nude
I used Fanny Serrano Gel Liner as my eyeliner, and the Nichido Kohl Liner in Onyx to tightline. For mascara, I used my L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Waterproof mascara. I don’t wear false eyelashes unless I really have too. I know that a lot of people are seriously addicted to those, and I really hope I was but I just don’t like how I look like when I wear them.
For my cheeks, I just used the ELF Contouring kit (bronzer) and the ELF’s Candid Coral blush. I decided not to go all out with my lip color that’s why I decided to just use Etude’s Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips in PPK003 (blended with a lip liner underneath). For reference here’s the complete list of the products that I’ve used for this look:
| ♥ Maybelline Aqua Gel Foundation in Natural
♥ Mememe Cosmetics Flawless Face Concealer in Porcelain
♥ Snoe Cosmetics Poudre Extraordinare in Perfect Beige Medium
|♥ Wet N’ Wild Ultimate Brow Kit||
♥ Lip Staysss Semi Permanent Lip Butter Essence in Baby Pink
♥ L.A. Colors Auto Lip Liner in Pinky
♥ Etude House Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips in PPK003
| ♥ ELF Contouring Kit Blush & Bronzing Powder
♥ ELF Blush in Candid Coral
♥ In2it Face Highlighters in Warm Glow
| ♥ Urban Decay Mini Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Original)
♥ Lorac Pro Palette
♥ Nichido Kohl Pencil in Onyx
♥ Fanny Serrano Long Wear Gel Liner
♥ L’oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Waterproof Mascara
Though I don’t use dark browns that much, I really like this look. I’m kinda thankful that i was bored that night otherwise I wouldn’t be able to come up with this and might’ve just stick with my usual day look.
Anyway, that’s it for my FOTD.
Oh, and for my NOTD, here’s what I’m currently wearing in my nails:
Revlon Nail Enamel in Charming
Basically it’s just a light/pastel purple cream finish. I’m really into cream/nude nail polishes lately, so there you go. I believe that I included this nail polish in my recent collective haul so if you want, you can go and check that out.
So that’s it, I hope you like this look and try it if you like. More FOTDs to come in the near future (I hope, lol). Oh and I would really love to hear your thoughts regarding this look, so comment down below and let’s talk.
See you on my next post!
