Mauves & Golds | FOTD

Mauves & Golds | FOTD

So it’s definitely been a while since I last posted an FOTD and as much as I apply makeup almost every day, I really do miss posting some of my looks in this blog. My last FOTD was my Valentine’s Look (click here if you would like to see it) and to be quite honest, I never really thought of posting one again until recently. I’m not the best at creating looks and you pretties know that I LOVE my neutrals. But as they say, when you know, you know.. (or does that apply to something else.. Oh well! :P)

Now, let’s try this again..


Mauves & Golds | FOTD

For my base, I just used the QuickFX No Shine Mattifier as my primer. I am currently obsessed with this stuff. So is my mama btw! Then I mixed my Avon Ideal Luminous Foundation (Shell) with my Hayan Korea BB Cream. Unfortunately my Avon fondie’s a bit to pinkish for me so I had to make it work. I love this combination though! It gives me the coverage I want along with that pearlescent glow. Then I used my ZA Perfect Fit Concealer (not in the photo) to brighten up my under eye area then my Collection Cosmetics Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer (Medium) to conceal some bumps & pimples. Then after I applied my brows, my eye makeup, I set my makeup using my current favorite – Heroine Make Mineral BB Loose Powder (01)

After applying my base, I proceed with doing my brows. I outline and fill it with my no. 1 favorite brow product my Look Beauty Brow Perfect Kit. Sadly, this has already been discontinued and I don’t know what brow kit I’m going to get myself next. Anyway, I set all of it using two different shades of Etude House’s Color My Brows.

Then after that, I proceed with doing my eye makeup. First I primed my eyelids using my Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper then I used my Smashbox The Masterclass Palette 2 for my eyeshadow. I basically used the gold shade for my inner eyelid area then I mixed it with champagne shade, along with warm matte shades for the crease to act as a transition shade. Then to line my eyes, I used my Pixy Perfect Eyeliner and for my waterline I used my Heroine Make Quick Eyeliner. After curling my lashes, using my Heroine Make Eyelash Curler, I then used my L’oreal Lash Out Butterfly Mascara.

After doing my eyes, I proceed to doing my cheeks. First I did some heavy contouring using my FS Cosmetics Single Eyeshadow in ‘Cinnamon Mousse’, then to give my face that warm glow, I used my Tarte Mineral Powder Bronzer in ‘Hotel Heiress’. After bronzing & contouring, I then applied the shade ‘Flush’ from the Smashbox Masterclass 2 Palette as my blush then I used the shade ‘Incandescent’ from my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette as my highlighter and the shade ‘Dim Light’ as my all over setting powder.

Finally to the lips, if you have been following my blog, you will know that I’ve always been obsessed with browns and mauves and I’m so glad that it’s now peeking it’s way through thanks to Kylie Jenner. Anyway, in this look, I’m currently wearing my Milani Lip liner in the shade ‘natural’ then I topped it off with my Wet N’ Wild Fergie Lipstick in the shade ‘Fergie Daily’. I find Fergie Daily to be a bit lighter for me to be quite honest, but now I found a great use for it.

So that would be it, loves! Those are the products that I have used to create this look. Let me know if you want to see more of these posts and I’ll see what I can do. As for this look, to be honest, I was just playing with my makeup that day (and yes! I do that when I am completely and utterly bored) and then when I saw the end results, I happen to love it. Hence the photo. Yeah, sorry for the lame excuse.

Anyway, see you soon, ladies & stay tuned for another review!

    Love how you work for your foundations! Sometimes I encounter such problems like not suiting theshade if my foundation on the color of my face. Haha super love this look. I am also fond of peach, mauve, coral shade lippy and blush ons.

    • Thanks, Fati!

      Yup, you know me. All mauves & pinks

    I love the look! And I was amazed by how you did your base. I think I just put concealer then foundation and that’s it. Haha. I’m kinda lazy experimenting on my base eh. I’m more energized to play with my eyeshadows. Love your lips as well. It looks natural. I definitely love the overall look. Period.

    • I had to experiment! Sayang yung foundation! It doesn’t match my shade.

      Thanks, Abegail!

  • I love my neutrals too. Haha It’s the safest look kasi. Btw, I like the look, it’s been a while since my last fotd post din. Sometimes kasi you don’t have the time to take pictures na kahit you really liked your makeup, diba?

    • Korek! Or you just take selfies and it’s not really an hd cam so the pictures are just not so blog-worthy. At least para sakin.

    Love this FOTD! It looks simple, classy and date-ready so it could be a follow-up of your last Valentine’s Day FOTD na you said na was the last one you did? I felt like this look focused more on having that flawless finish that makes you just glow.


    • Thanks, Gellie! Yeah it’s been a while since I last an FOTD. I missed doing it

    This is something I’d wear on a daytime big event, especially if I want my dress to be the center of attention. I can also wear this every day at work minus the shimmery lids. I’m actually trying to figure out what makeup to wear this Sunday to a kiddie party. I’m torn between sporting neutral makeup all over or maybe neutral eyes with a a pop of lip color for that youthful vibe. Any suggestions?

    • I would go with a pop of lip color. Since it’s a party why not go all out with your lips? (even though it’s just a kiddie party)

      That happened a lot to me too (with regard to the concealer). What I do if I have some major bumps to conceal is that I build it up layer by layer. After I apply a thin coat of concealer, I set it with a translucent powder (put some on your pencil brush to be precise, or a lip brush), I put a thin layer again, then I set it. I do these steps until I get my desired coverage.
