Happy Sunday everyone! How is your weekend so far? I am actually down with a stomach flu, so besides working on my blog I haven’t done much this weekend. Ah well. At least I’ll probably lose some weight over this lol
I took some photos of the FOTDs I did this week. However, since I am really unhappy about how one of them turned out and the other is an old standby, I didn’t want to do separate posts about them. On top of that, I managed to bruise a patch of skin on my nose bridge trying to get rid of a spot. Concealer worked but didn’t make it disappear entirely. I toyed with the idea of not putting any FOTDs up this week, but since blogging is a way of keeping track, I’m putting both looks in one post.
The first look was done with MAC Shale on lids, the definer shade of the right column of Wet n’ Wild Comfort Zone to contour, and the Browbone shade of the right column to highlight the inner corners. The definer shade was also used to smudge my lower lash line out. It turned out weird. Really really weird, in a way that it darkened my face instead of brightening it. I guess Shale is not meant to be mixed with these two shades, or maybe I didn’t use them strategically enough.
Here is the eye closeup so you can see how bleh it is:
All in all, NOT a combination I’d do again!
The other one was an old standby with the Naked Palette. I used Half Baked on lids, Smog to contour, and Darkhorse on my lower lash line.
It’s a no-brainer, but it’s something I have always appreciated ever since I got the palette almost a year and a half ago. I do think I’m getting a little too pale to wear Half Baked well though. Can’t wait for the warm and sunny season to come!
I wore Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait for both looks. Swatch and review will come soon!
How about you? How would you wear a color like Shale? What is a look you tried and actively disliked recently?
PS: Jazz, the cat of Christina from The Makeup Train got seriously ill. He was taken to the vet’s and managed to make a full and speedy recovery. However, the bill is huge, so Christina started a blog sale to try to generate some fund. Please take a look if you’re interested! It’s getting makeup and helping a cat at the same time!
