FOTD: Dior Tutu. Loads of Pink.

I feel like I had to channel my non existent inner Barbie when wearing this palette. Tutu is  a very pink palette, and you can refer to the swatches in my previous review here. If you’ve been a long time reader, you’d know I’m not a fan of sweet girlie stuff like pinks. I’ve always prefer darker shadows. I’m a smokey eye kinda person.

As I was applying these shadows, I got flashbacks of all those Barbie cartoons both my daughters watch. I still stand firm in thinking that if you have flatter eyes like me, you’d need to use darker shadows and dark liner for more definition. However for this post, I’m using the colours only from this palette, and with black liner. Don’t my eyes look smaller for some reason? I thought they look a bit puffy too :-)

Sunday Stash Shopping #27: Mixing Foundations

Do you have the urge to do your experiments sometimes? I like my Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup, but I also want more coverage to tone down the redness on my skin. I like my Make Up For Ever HD Foundation, but at times, I’d like for it to feel lighter on my skin. Also, the MUFE HD foundation is 3 years old, and I’m giving it another month before throwing it out. Sometimes I do wonder if I need to. I keep it in my drawer which is cool, dry and dark, the smell remained the same, and so is the texture. My skin doesn’t react badly to it, and basically, everything’s just normal. I know some of you might be freaking out right now, that I’m using an old foundation, but don’t worry. This and the Mat Velvet + foundation will be thrown out after this post. I bought both at the same time, and the Mat Velvet + is too heavy for my skin already. I used to prefer full coverage, but not anymore :-)

Femme Boulevard: Vamp

It’s still end of July, and in some places, it’s still summer, and in others, it’s winter. We decided to do something different, and by that, we’re feeling vampy. The first thing I thought of was to pull out my darker lipsticks. How exciting :-) Then, I was debating whether to keep my eyes minimal, or to go all out dark. I haven’t been playing much with eye shadows for a few months now, and I took this opportunity to actually use some of my eye shadows! Dark eyes it is. I was going to use black only but….. it kinda got out of hand. Heh!

For the base, I wanted something flawless, so I used my newly purchased Lancome Blanc Miracle SPF50 liquid foundation, set with my well loved Lancome Maqui Blanc Miracle powder foundation. To avoid looking like a goth, I added some pink using Dior Rosy Glow blush.

Sunday Stash Shopping #26: 4 Dior Rouge Samples

So who here doesn’t know Dior Rouge and Dior Addicts are my favourite formula in lipsticks? I’ve had this sample for months, and I didn’t use it. I honestly didn’t know what I was thinking, but I’m glad I opened it for this post. The shades have been out for a while already, so you probably have seen them. The shades are 999, Grege 1947 (169), Darling (567) and Trafalgar (539). I decided to wear them with cooler metallic eyes so I took out my neglected Urban Decay Naked2 palette. For foundation, I used my MUFE HD foundation which still has about half a bottle left.

Femme Boulevard Goes On Vacation

This month, we decided to show you vacation looks. What makeup would I wear during a vacation? I just came back from Hong Kong recently and it was really hot there. So, I shall share with you REALISTICALLY what I did. For realz. I was out and about the whole time, mostly in the sun, hence there was bound to be sweat and grime. I was hardly in air conditioned places, and it is IMPOSSIBLE for makeup NOT to melt in 33 Celcius hot and humid weather. Even at night, we’d be walking so much, it’s hard not to sweat. So, for that type of vacation, my staples are a hat, sunscreen, sunnies and wet wipes.
