we are fast approaching Week 2 of the year already! Today, I am quite happy, because I came home in this rainy afternoon (it's so cooling, my toes are kind of chilly even without the fan switched on), and my bro and dad removed the window grilles in my room. Somehow it looks so much brighter despite the drab weather, and just perfect for some picture-taking!
This week, I am switching up my face cream/ primer, foundation and loose powder:
Base/ moisturiser: Mederma Cream SPF30 sunscreen
Foundation: Guerlain Lingerie de Peau
* it is so light and liquidy, yet has enough coverage for me.
Setting Powder: EM Finishing Dust
*very finely milled, keeps my face feeling powdery for the day. Maybe it's a mineral powder, but I think it doesn't feel as smooth as my other powders? That said, the finish is the same, makes my skin looks smooth and matte, and hence I am liking so far! I tapped out the powder onto the cap, and use a powder puff to apply it all over my face.
Blush: NARS Gilda
Highlight: Guerlain meteorites perfecting pressed powder
* I love everything about this powder, it is pressed, it smells divine, it is not shimmery, nor glittery but just nice subtle glow. I also like to use this to blend out the edges of my blush colour to look more natural.
Lips: Revlon Nude Attitude
Concealer and brow products are the same as before.
some of the products up close:
The Mederma cream
It is quite a light cream, and blends easily into my skin.
NARS Gilda blush. It is a matte pigmented peachy pink blush. Darker than most peachy pink types.
This picture really shows the true to life colour.
and the pressed Meteorites powder, you can see most of the domes in the centre have been flattened by my constant usage.
I applied my makeup at 6.30am, this pic was taken at 5pm. Ok, the weather today isn't very humid, nor hot and sticky..but if I applied all my foundie, and set it with powder, I can get it to last pretty much the whole day. I blotted twice throughout the course of the day.
I also slept at 2am last night, and well, got barely 4 hours of sleep before I had to get up for a whole packed day. What's wrong with my body clock!
This is the same thing I did for the Sat meet-up, cos it takes me maximum 15 minutes to pile on the base makeup, fill in my brows and get out of the house.
That's all, and thanks for looking!
What are you using for the week??
