Merry Christmas FOTD!

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you’ll be surrounded by loving friends, family, and great presents! So what’s your plan for the occasion? I’ll be off to Brussels to spend time with my Belgian family (long story short: I stayed with a Belgian family in Brussels for my first 3 years here. There is a reason why I am such an expert in bossing people around the house… in French). But before that, I’d like to share my Christmas practice run FOTD with you!

The concept is doing something slightly different from what I’d wear on a daily basis without going all out (I’m saving that for the New Year’s Eve). I said I wanted to try another look with my LMdB Bauhaus, and this is it! I began with lining my upper and lower waterline/lash line thickly with Tarte Onyx before layering Axiom, Graphic, and Crucible all over my lids. I added a bit of Genre into the outer v. I also highlighted my inner corers with Graphic and went over my lower lash line with Axiom.

I finished the eyes with some black gel liner patted into my upper lash line, a coat of Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum (still my holy grail), and 2 generous coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara (I haven’t raved about it here, but it’s been my go-to).

I used Estee Lauder Peach Passion Pure Color Blush on my cheeks, and contoured with Chanel Notorious (I am not going to review this in detail because it is very well-reviewed already. I’m only going to say that if you get it, use a very light hand because this baby is very pigmented. However, even on my very warm-toned skin, it sits and imitates shadow very well). I slicked some Chanel Troublant on my lips and voilà!

More pictures!

Have a good one, people! I’ll be back in a couple of days!

      Thanks Petra! I chose to go eye-heavy because I knew I’d be stuffing myself. Needed something that would look good even after all the food!

    Merry Christmas Sunny. I would like to ask on where did you get the chanel notorious? I do not see it here in Liège (at Inno). I am so dying to have my hands on it but no luck.

    • Sunny

      Hey Myna, here is the tricky thing. I was told that Notorious would be exclusively available at the Chanel boutique (in Brussels), but when I went the SAs had NO idea what I was talking about. Before I asked again though, a blogger based in the US asked if I wanted her backup so I went the easy way. I would suggest you call the boutique and see if they can figure something out? Hope this helps!

    Merry Christmas Sunny! HAve fun in Brussels! ^^ You speak French? :o

    • Sunny

      Thanks Yak Man! I had a great time in Brussels and yes I speak French ;) I actually wanted to pick Spanish for my second foreign language, but I knew I’d never be able to roll my tongue properly but the French r seemed manageable so I went with it! That was 10 years ago now!

      • http://leisurelysensitive.blogspot.com Yak Man

        ahaa! I never knew that :o. I can write a little bit French but when I’ve to talk French it’s really horrible :’).

        • Sunny

          Oh I’m sure it’s fine. I speak any foreign language I tried to learn after English with a bit of an American accent… according to people ;)

    Such a pretty look! I am happy to see a lip color that is not red. I love red lipstick, but it’s way overdone every Christmas.

    • Sunny

      Haha thanks Chris! Since Christmas is all about stuffing one’s face, I was aiming at doing something that will still look good after all the eating ;)
