Another LOTD post! I had wanted to post photos from my graduation and do a vlog entry but since I don't have those photos on hand now I'll post up some other entries that are sitting in the 'holding' area. Namely this one!
This is a rather old Look of the Day, though one that I had repeatedly done during my hectic final project period. I would explain why I favored this look in just a bit but for now here are the photos and the list of products I had used. In some photos you can see the ulcers formed from where I had accidentally bit my lip, please don't mind that.
Etude House Baby Skin Foundation in 02
Revlon Loose Powder (to set)
K-Palette Brow Liner in 02
Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer
Maquillage Palette in BE763 (middle color - all over lid)
L'oreal Palette in Golden Tan/Fair (dark and medium brown - crease and outer-v)
28 Color Palette (highlight)
MAC Powerpoint Liner in Engraved
Majolica Majorca Mascara
K-Palette Mascara (layered over the MM one)
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Nectar
Maquillage Perfect Lip Rouge in PK112

I didn't layer on much of the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick for it to show up very obviously. This is a product that does require some building up for a more obvious effect. I don't mind that so much since that means I don't have to be overly cautious with how much I pick up with the brush and I can simply swirl away!
The all over lid color I used in this LOTD was from the Maquillage Palette in BE763 (the middle color). As mentioned in an earlier LOTD featuring this palette, I love how the eyeshadow shades have this brightening and light-reflecting effect. Sort of like how it is captured in this photo:
I like how this effect seems to 'give life' to the eyes by making it seem brighter and more awake. I have learnt that putting makeup on tired eyes (from the lack of sleep) can sometimes enhance how tired and dull it looks, so I turned to using brighter shadows and voila it worked!
I have probably been repeating how these shadows have a brightening effect and you are all bored of it by now, but I am amazed at how pretty the sheen of these shadows are. Not gritty or 'oily' looking, just a perfect sheen. I do love the lipstick color as well and this shade seems to be my favorite of the ones I ended up with. More about those in future. I'm planning to do a lipswatch entry since I haven't done that, look out for it!
Thanks for reading and I'll try to post more colored looks now! Or at least stray from neutrals for a bit.
