A Good Night Sleep FOTD

LMAO at the title! I'm so not creative! Today I did a look w/o my signature eyeliner, so I thought I'd share.

The goal today was to create the illusion that I got a good night sleep, when in actuality I only got about 2 hrs of craptastic sleep. Also, I'm starting to use this mineral brand called Mineral Hygienics, and it's working really well! I actually think that my skin looks decent today.

Note: I didn't photoshop any of my pics, I'm way to computer illiterate to do that. I love taking flashless pix in the sunlight cuz it makes my skin look awesome!

What I used:

Mineral Hygienics Fdtn in Fairly Light (also layered as concealer)
Mineral Hygienics bronzer (a little too orange as a bronzer, I used it as a blush)

TKB Trading in Highlight Copper (I loved it so much that I got a whole ounce!)
TKB Trading in Antiqued Copper Mica (love!!)

MAC Brow...powdew duo thingy
MF 2000 calorie extreme mascara (ppl who love CG lashblast would REALLY love this!)

Strawberry Chapstick (Old School!)


Close up: The colors were used to lightly that you can barely see anything!

Fake photoshop!! I love my camera!

My face is SOOOO round!

Only pic taken with flash!

Anyway, I think this will be the last time you will see me w/o my liner! WUAHHAHHAHAH!

My goodness, Tao! You look so beautiful<3
Your kind and gentle face reminds me of the gorgeous Kate Winslet:)

Anyhow, *I almost forgot* I'm just so in love with your eyes! They are so elegant and pretty. They have this natural lady-like appeal to them. I seriously wish I didn't have such shapeless and constipated eyes:(

Well, enough of me being a whiner, I hope you have a great day and I'll talk to you soon.

Take care<3

You definitely look different without eyeliner! Looks very fresh and light. I agree with you about taking pics in sunlight - I love taking FOTD pics with lots of daylight because it washes out imperfections for me :P

miemiemie said...

aww you look pretty even without the eyeliner, just simple and pretty to look at. :) i look sleepy without eyeliner on..i also always end up lining my eyes with a thick line coz it barely shows on my lids!

Kaila said...

Hi Tao~ I have to say, you look absolutely beautiful without the liner. Honestly, consider doing more natural looks without it because you look so elegant and pretty. Of course, use your signature liner with your more colorful looks! :)

Helloooooooooo GORGEOUS!!!

Had to make a beauty pitstop to my favorite lil makeup grape...

You look so beautiful with a subtle eye dear - but I do love your made up looks, because I can appreciate how much time and effort it takes to achieve your maxed out looks...

always a pleasure to see your shares love!!

miemiemie said...

ha! if you'd kill for my skin, i'd kill for your eyes! i love your eyes! i love them better than mine!

angie519 said...

I can relate to having a round face! =P hahha

Pretty look! I'm not use to seeing you without eyeliner!

Poor thing! I always put 6-7 hours of sleep before school work haha. I just can't function with less =P.

Hahha.. making people poor is my #1 talent! ;)

But seriously, no problem. Haha glad I could help narrow it down for ya!

Haha it's cause my boys are too fun to bother. I bother them and they play with me. Or I can tempt them enough to get them to play. Needless to say, they aren't overweight haha.

Take more pictures of your pets!

I visit your blog a lot and watch your youtube videos. I just wanted to tell you that I think you look A LOT better without your thick eyeliner. I feel that this makeup opens up your eyes more. Just my opinion.

Don't hate me! =]

Noooooooo you look awesome without natural!

OMG. i mean this so DAMN MUCH. you look 100000x better without liner. i have similar eyes as you and i realized that all that liner is not necessary (plus it is still too harsh for everyday use and edges on an egyptian vibe or something like that) if you add a bit of dimension to the eyes with brown shadow or black ofor more drama. it looks perfect here. PLEASEEEEEE trust me you look great here!

This looks really good Tao. And you do look like you've got a good night's sleep. I really like the color on you.

Hello! I have seen quite a few of your video tutorial in youtube. You are really good at applying make-up (: One of your tutorials was on E.D.M , after watching it, I purchased it online.
Would like to ask you, compared E.D.M and the other mineral make up brands that you have used, which is better?
