Demure FOTD

I looked back at the content of my entries recently and realized I did not post any new FOTDs for approximately 2 weeks. If you're wondering what's going on, let me tell you why: after the Ungaro release, I began doing the same look over and over again using the same group of colors. I think the ultra-feminine side of me finally took over and I'm now enjoying soft pink eye shadows! This is something very new to me and I have to say for the past 2 weeks, makeup became a bit more predictable but nevertheless, I'm not any bit less happier.

This is the look I'm talking about, you first saw it here if I remember correctly

I fell in love with Ungaro-style makeup and Adorned with Grace did not make it any easier when giving me the best foundation and eyeshadow I could dream of. So for the past 2 weeks, I sported the cutest pink makeup ever. This look is pretty but not girly, it does not scream "I'm obsessed with pink!" but gives a sophisticated vibe. And I think I dig that.

Eyes: surprisingly you don't need a lot of products. However, pinks are not captured well with my camera so everything looks kind of brown. Please click here and here for swatches of the eye shadows I use.

Sci-fi schematic explained below
  • Trustworthy is applied all over the lid area using a MAC 239 brush. You can foil (apply wet) the color if you want a more intense level of color saturation.
  • Adorable is applied as a contouring color using a blending brush. I personally prefer a lot of pink to contour to bring out more pink-ness in the look. However, if you prefer to have a more neutral look, apply this color lightly. An alternative to Adorable is Hard Candy Taffy eyeshadow since they look similar to each other.
  • Using the same brush, apply Brilliant to the area underneath the eyebrow to highlight.
  • Using a black liquid eyeliner to line your eyes and apply 2 coats of black mascara.
Cheeks: AwG Sassy blush, a very cute pink blush, using a stippling brush. Since AwG blushes are really pigmented, a stippling brush like MAC 187 is necessary.

Lips: MAC Ungaro Not So Shy! lip stain and MAC Sugar Trance lip glass (from Fafi collection). I find that Sugar Trance really tone down the berry color of Not So Shy and gives it a perfect pink.

Some couple of extra pictures for those who like 'em :)

I love this look very much, how about you?

I don't know why but this picture is kind of funny.
Also, I think I look like a 12 year old here :)

It's good to finally put a FOTD up. Just in case you still think something happened to me, now you know. I love this look so much and I hope you will enjoy it as well.

Take care and be fabulous,
