FOTD: Gypsy on My Lips

With today’s look, I made my lips more noticeable and a little less color on my eyes. I just thickened the black on my eyes to, somehow, toughen up the whole look. This look would be great if you’re going to the office or applying for a job; but it definitely is not a natural everyday look even though it is a bit lighter than my previous look. Maybe I will try a more natural look next time; but for now, this is what I have got to offer.



- Garnier Whitening and Even Moisturizing Cream

- Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup (Honey Beige)

- Wish Pressed Powder (Beige)

- Clinique Pressed Powder Bronzer (True Bronze)

- Nichido Powder Blush (Cool Rum)


- Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color Quad (Amber Blaze)

- Love & Beauty Smokey Palette (Darker Brown and White)

- Love & Beauty Brow and Eyeliner Pencil

- Wet N Wild Color Icon Brown and Eyeliner Pencil

- L’Oreal Voluminous Naturale Mascara


- Watsons Moisturizing Lip Balm (Strawberry)

- ELF Lipstick (Gypsy)


First I did was to apply the Garnier moisturizer and then applied the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup (Honey Beige). I, then, used the Wish Pressed Powder (Beige) to set the foundation.

For the eyes, I applied first the Mary Kat Amber Blaze on the lids, the Love & Beauty Darker Brown on the crease and the White on the brow bone. I used the Love & Beauty liner to lengthen my brows and to make it a bit fuller and the Wet N Wild liner on my lids and on the waterline. Notice how I applied it a bit thicker? This is because I wanted to create a tough look on my eyes even if there is less color. I, then, curled my lashes and applied the L’Oreal Voluminous Naturale Mascara on my upper and lower lashes.

For my lips, I applied, using my pinky finger, the Watsons Moisturizing Lip Balm (Strawberry) and then put on the ELF Lipstick (Gypsy) on my upper and lower lip.

For my last touches, I applied the Nichido Powder Blush (Cool Rum) on my cheek bone going slantly upwards to create an illusion that my face is longer. Again, this technique is good for people with round faces like me. Then, I used the Marionnaud N37 Brush (originally an eye brush) to make a line on my nose to make it look thinner. I applied the Clinique Pressed Powder Bronzer (True Bronze) and then I applied white eyeshadow in the middle to highlight the line I made. Blend it well so as not to look weird.

To set the whole look together and create a matte finish, I applied Wish Pressed Powder (Beige) again using my ELF Total Face brush.

So that is how I achieved today’s look. I hope you all enjoyed it. Watch out for tomorrow’s look. Might go natural because we’re just gonna go to the doctor for our year’s flu shot. Have you had yours?
