Hello everyone, this LOTD is pretty belated but for a good reason, I didn't manage to get my hands on these photos till now. The camera and memory card were all at the boyfriend's place.
This was taken on a weekend on a day we went to watch Harry Potter, I think the 3rd week after it was released - It was always sold out of good timings on the weekends and we didn't want to bother with booking it.
The plan was to drop by the boyfriend's sister's place after the movie and have a few games of badminton, hence I didn't want to wear much makeup.

Now I really wasn't kidding when I said minimal makeup!
It's not a no-makeup-with-makeup kind of a look but I do like to go super minimalistic if I don't have to be all made up yet I want to look presentable in the simplest way possible. As you can tell, I didn't bother with things like mascara, eyeshadow, eye primer or anything and this would be as basic as I would go. It also shows what I find is more important to me in a routine - that being eyeliner!
This post would have been pointless and I would pass on posting it if it were to end here but I want to quickly give mention to a product I have used, the Vichy Normaderm Liquid Foundation. I remember Amy (purplio) ever expressing interest in this foundation so here are my quick thoughts about it.
This isn't an official review so I'm not going touch on technicalities.
I was provided this to try and like most foundations produced from skincare-centric brands, I didn't expect much of it in terms of coverage hence I tried it on a minimal makeup day. I was right about that, the coverage is light but it still works at evening out the skintone and concealing slight pigmentation (acne scars) - It wouldn't do anything for obvious spots.
I didn't pay attention to the oil control and lasting ability when I tried it, but I did notice it gives a very natural look to the skin. It still preserves the skin's texture in a natural way while giving slight coverage. If you're thinking along the lines of Make Up For Ever HD Foundation, it's not quite the same. This is more on a natural texture while MUFE HD is made to enhance and make the skin appear flawless.
Here's a closeup shot and hopefully you'll get the idea of what I mean - click to enlarge for full quality!
If there are some interested, I can most definitely follow up and do a full review of this foundation with application photos, the proper technicalities etc.
So, as of now it's 12:20AM 31st December on my clock, less than 24 hours left of 2010 and then we're on to the new year, how exciting!
Here's a HAPPY NEW YEAR in advance, hope 2011 brings about more exciting stuff for each and every one (: Thank you for reading!
