Long time no FOTD! (pic heavy)

Hi guys! I know, I know, I haven't done a proper FOTD in a LONG time! I apologize for that....LOL!

So, school is officially sucking. It's been 3 days and I'm already swimming in projects, assignments, and essays. *gag* So, instead of actually doing anything productive, I'm procrastinating and blogging, LOL!

This is what I wore to school today. Later, I pumped up the look a little and changed the lip color to something a little more pigmented. I like nudes during the day, and colors for the night. Also, pigmented colors make me feel more mature and sexy, LMAO!

What I used:

--MAC F&B foundation in C3. (It's really REALLY sheer, but I've been getting a little darker due to the extreme sun)
--Coverblend concealer in Beige
--Maybelline dream matte powder in Sand (LOVE THIS! I think I see pan!)
--Stila illuminating finish powder in Bronze as a bronzer
--NYX blush in Terracotta (LOVE!)

--Stila mineral matte e/s in Nanda Devi (dark) and Kalahoo (light gray)
--Maybelline powder to clean up the edges/highlight
--Stila smudgepot in black
--Apple mascara as a base
--L'oreal Telescoplic mascara

--Beautyrush l/g in Cantaloopy (nude) (THIS IS LOVE)
--Stila Long Wearing lip color in Serenate (It's amazingly MLBB color, perfect for office wear)

First up, the neutral. In the first 2 pics, I don't have anything on my lips.

With lips now! Woot! I LOOOOVE this lip color!

Close ups:

With darker lips, I wanted my hair down to portray that "mature" look, LOL! I think it's a fail though.

...Although, goofy faces ARE my specialty.

Close up.

Last but not least, look who's with me through thick & thin.

Sigh...Off to school I go.

Hello :)

I just stumbled upon your blog when I was looking for reviews about Egypian Magic. I like the way your eye makeup looks and i can never get my makeup to do that. Do u have a tutorial on Youtube?

Puffcake said...

Beautiful sophisticated look! I think you give off "in-charge-of-my-life-in-school/work-and-health/beauty" vibe lol. No one can guess that you might be stressed about all the projects n work for school (good luck with those btw) haha

Tao, I don't know if it's me but, your cute cheeks are gone:[ (your face looks so slim!)

Anyhow, I am loving the look:] And you do look mature with the bold red lips<3 Very sophisticated.

Ai said...

aaww cute kittie! <3 love the FOTD esp. with the nude lips. very SEXYYY!

ilovewendydarling said...

Aw, I'm so sorry! I haven't a clue though but, I guess it's because my blogger is screwy sometimes:[

And don't be so modest! You look so freaking beautiful! <3 It has def. got to be the new work out you're doing and I can see it! Just don't lose all that youthful-pretty in your cheeks:]

And HAHA! I can't wait until I actually get some cheek fillers. I look like a stinking skeleton 0___0;; (I sound like a PS junkie...)

Anyhow, take care and talk to you soon<3

izumi said...

i love the lip change ;D you DID pull off a more sexy look with your hair down too! love it. my dream matte has just about that much wear too.. dammit. i've had it since march! pretty good for $10 though :)

miemiemie said...

love love the neutral photos :) so pretty

aniegeek said...

Yay for pretty FOTD! Love the pics~ Hope school lets up a little, or at least becomes a little more enjoyable...

For sunscreen, if you're looking for something good and non-greasy, Clarins UV Day Plus SPF 40 is really light and gives good protection~ (Badger Natural Sunscreen is also highly rated for protection if you're looking for something more natural, but I have it and the texture is kind of greasy~ )
