Hello, I'm back with a LOTD!
This weekend has been one hellavu but I think I say that for almost every weekend so.. moving on...
I managed to stop being lazy and played around with makeup on both Saturday and Sunday. Though my Sunday look was really nothing to shout about so I skipped taking shots of it. One thing that I did take away from the whole full-face look thing on Sunday is that I've really missed MUFE's HD Foundation! I chucked it to the back of the drawer, only pulling it out again today (for fun) and I'm loving it all over again.
That aside, here's what I wore on Saturday!
Ever since getting the MAC mineralized shadows from Heavenly Creatures, I realized that Earthly aside, I haven't used any of the other eyeshadows. Thus I took Water out to play and paired it with Modern Pewter from an older MAC collection (Extra Dimension).
What can I say, I love my mossy greens! This is probably my zillionth look with moss greens.
While not apparent, there are little flecks of blue shimmer from the sapphire swirls in Water but overall it's a murky olive shade – my kind of color!
It feels fun to be wearing a full face of makeup again even if it means making an effort to stop being makeup-lazy!
And here's the complete look with my current lip obsession - Lancôme L'Absolu Crème de Brilliance lipgloss (seen here)!

Highlighted products were provided by companies/distributors,
I was not obliged to use/feature them in LOTDs.
I tried to go for a downplay-ed blush and lip combo, keeping it rather natural yet not nude.
While keeping that toned down, I wanted to give my skin a muted glow by using Burberry's Fresh Glow beneath my Shu foundation (which is known to give a more skin-like look, not exactly dewy).
I brushed on Guerlain's Meteorites Perles d'Azur very lightly on the high points of the cheeks but that powder is so soft and illuminating that it's not going to make a huge difference in pictures. In person it does add a very subtle glow to the skin, as if you didn't use anything for that.
I think I shall use the Meteorites more during workdays to give my skin some 'life'. Especially since it is so mild I need not worry about any disco ball mess while rushing in the morning.
And that is it! I hope everyone had a good weekend!
Thanks for reading!
