The night before, I had a mind to search around my wardrobe for something feminine and floral to wear to the church wedding today. I have no particular idea why floral but I just wanted to wear something I rarely do. Though come morning, it was a whole different story...
Getting ready at 8am (proceedings start at 10am) with 3 hours of sleep left me thinking, okay whatever, I'm just going to slap something on.
Amidst all that, I did manage to reach for the Anna Sui Anna Rose Cheek Color and Double Lipgloss in Sensual Rose. Aside from the swatches I had done, and featured here, I haven't played around with these or wore them out until now.
The blush seems to sway a little pink-toned on me as opposed to the flushed-red I presumed it would be. I had spammed on a little more blush than I normally wear but this blush picks up well and one dusting is really all you need. I went for 1 1/2 because... I needed to look alive at 10 in the morning and the pictures tend to moderate the blush effect a little. The photos reflect what 1 dusting looks in person, hope that makes sense.
Here's the swatch I did in the previous post, just for a recap.
It is still a lovely rosey shade on, which I love but I think it all boils down to how and where you run your brush over and which colors you pick up on.
On my eyes I had on plain ole neutrals, nothing to it and I didn't want to fuss with colors because wearing contacts was quite a challenge in itself already. If only someone could invent tired-eye-friendly contacts!
Though if you are interested,
On My Eyes:
- Stila Kitten
- L'oreal Made For Me Naturals In Medium Fair
- CLIO Professional Pen Liner
- MAC Powerpoint Liner in Engraved
- Dollywink Mascara in Volume
I used both ends of the Double Lipgloss in Sensual Rose, leaving me with a pink-red lip which I think ended up complimenting the blush very well. While I love the rouge portion on it's own, it's a pretty combination and that shine/sheen the glossy end lends is lovely.
As far as outfit goes, I think it's been established that I never did end up dressing in florals. Though I did put some effort into it and dug up this dress I have had for almost a year now but haven't worn out at all.
Ignore the mildly candid hand on the right shot.
This is a cream colored dress with an interesting lapel design along the front. This was one of the first few pieces I had received from Loef (before I did fashion features) and I think they no longer have this up on their site - I think.
Do you have any guilty pieces stashed away in your wardrobe that you haven't worn?
Hope everyone's weekend is going along good and thanks for reading!
