Haven't posted any LOTD mentions or popped my face on here in awhile so I thought I would do a rambly 'little' entry with... well, no clear purpose!
It is also partially because I was trying to entertain myself and drafted part of this this up while sitting at the boy's office yesterday, along with snapping the pictures! Long story short, we were out and about when the boy got called in to help out with some last minute design changes etc, those in design... you know, clients.
Anyway, I spent Thursday night back at home-home and since it was an impromptu decision, I didn't bring or pack anything extra.
When it comes to cleansers, moisturizers, clothes and whatnot, thankfully I have those readily available there but when it came time to slap on some makeup before heading out, I had to rely on what I could dig out from my usual makeup pouch.
It's a mad simple look because I don't bring all that much around with me, just enough to touch up the bare minimal - brows, foundation (no concealer even!), liner and lips.
Though in truth this has been how I have been loving my makeup looks lately – simple, put-together and fresh. It could be fresher with some under eye concealer and maybe blush but oh well, we make do...
Plus, my skin has been on a good streak of late so I like the idea of lighter foundations (powder, mainly) to allow the skin to peek through as opposed to packing layers on and 'masking' it. Though I still reach for some liquids and bb creams when I feel like switching around.
Here's what was used and the whole look took me less than 5 minutes:
- Biore UV Aqua Rich SPF50 PA+++ (which is nearing its end!)
- MAC Brow Crayon in Flirt
- K-Palette Real Lasting Eye Pencil (not my absolute fav, but it's decent so I carry it around for touch ups)
- Shu Uemura Lipgloss in Corona Orange
- MAC Studio Fix Powder
I don't know if I am having a case of post-haircut-remorse but I somewhat miss my long no-bangs look. Or at least I miss how it looks over in this LOTD entry.
Perhaps I had gotten used to how quick and easy the no-bangs look is that with side-swept ones now, I feel they can be a little fluffy, messy and hard to work with sometimes but oh well... I am sure I will get used to these side-swept bangs again soon.
In my boredom (at the boy's office), I had also snapped shots of other stuff I carry around in my makeup pouch but I'll put that up in a quick entry to follow, just so this isn't too rambly!
Hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend thus far!
Mine started real great and aside from getting some errands and necessary trips out of the way, I definitely had a great time having a tomyam steamboat session with the fam back on Thursday.
Well, the fam consisting of my brother and mom since my dad was on a work trip abroad and the boy was ot-ing. Though don't pity him too much, he had a sumptuous Korean dinner at work. Ha!
I can't wait for a trip to the airport on Sunday to pick my dad up.
I have no idea why but a part of me just loves going to the airport, strolling around, sitting about and all. How about you?
Can you put together a quick look with the contents within your makeup pouch? Do share!
Have a great long weekend everyone and thanks for reading!
