Hi, work has started to wound down somewhat and I’m recovering from the nasty office flu, so I’ll be starting to post again. Though not at such a regular pace. It takes a bit of time to get back into the blogging groove 😛
In the meantime, I’ve had lots and lots of new makeup and skincare goodies to play around with. Let’s start with a couple of new products I received this week, which I’m really enjoying incorporating into my daily makeup look. Although there’s no winter season here in Singapore, the skies have been overcast daily with heavy thunderstorms on a most regular basis. Most decidedly not summer anymore. So here’s my take on a slightly shimmery look for a cloudy, rainy December in Singapore.
Starting from the top left, we have:
For the eyes
- NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Lavender (from Cherry Culture’s NYX sale. My first NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil)
- Silk Naturals’ new eyeshadow wand in DEMURE
For the cheeks
- Benefit 10 bronzer and highlighter duo
For the lips
A couple of coats of each over bare skin. I usually use them with an eyeshadow primer on my somewhat oily lids for slightly more intense colour and longer staying power. I love the frostiness of the 2 complementary shades in the most wearable of light lavenders.
Still ,my favourite bronzer shade out of all I’ve tried, with just the right amount of glow, not chunky shimmer. Gives a very realistic contour to my cheekbones on NC 20 – 25 skin 🙂
A couple of coats of slightly bolder lips in cool shades that suit my warm yellow undertones, as they’re on the sheer side but with colour.
