FOTD: C'est la vie


These past few days have been very busy for me. I have been really stressed with work, mentally, to be specific. I mean, it’s hard when you do writing as a job and as a hobby. I find it a bit overwhelming at times. Work can sometimes drain all the creative thoughts up my head that there would be moments when I would be left with none for my blog. It kind of sucks, I know. But you know what, despite of that, I am still here because of my passion for the craft and because of what I stand for.

What really is my goal in blogging? Why do I still keep this if I’m able to do writing at work? Well, work is still different. With blogging, I can freely express my thoughts, share with you my ideas about life in general, talk about random crappy things at times and, well, be able to inspire other women to chase their dreams, live their life and love themselves. I have received messages on how I have managed to inspire some people (although it’s not a big number, but still) because of how I live and perceive life to be. And although I believe that I am still far from being the ultimate most influential blogger who ever walked the face of the planet, knowing that I have touched some lives, inspired a few and met new friends along the way and it is more than enough.

PRODUCTS USED:

FACE: Aerie Color Hydrating Foundation in Almond | SanSan Foundation Cream | LA Colors Loose Powder in Natural | Clinique Soft-Pressed Powder Blush in Pink Blush

EYES: Ever Bilena Color Pencil in Brown | Ever Bilena Advanced HD Colorless Mascara | SanSan CYO Eyeshadow in Soft Sun Glow, Deep Earth Brown and Yellow Topaz | SanSan Kohl Eyeliner in brown | Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express Waterproof in Brownish Black

LIPS: Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Currant

HOW I DID IT:

Using my fingers, I applied the Aerie Color Hydrating Foundation in Almond all over my face and then the SanSan Foundation Cream on my under eyes and other areas which needed more coverage with the help of a foundation brush. Then, I used LA Colors Loose Powder in Natural to set the foundation. If you have noticed, I finally switched to a lighter shade of loose powder. I think I’ve gone a bit brighter. Weird but anyway, let’s proceed to the next step.


For the eyes, I filled in my brows using the Ever Bilena Color Pencil in Brown and then set it with the Ever Bilena Advanced HD Colorless Mascara. I, then, applied the | SanSan CYO Eyeshadow in Soft Sun Glow on my lids, the Deep Earth Brown on my crease and the Yellow Topaz on the inner corners of my eyes. Then, I used the SanSan Kohl Eyeliner in brown on my waterline, curled my lashes and applied the Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express Waterproof in Brownish Black.

For my lips, I just used the Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Currant and then used the Clinique Soft-Pressed Powder Blush in Pink Blush for a soft and natural looking blush on my cheeks.


I have more to blog these coming days and I would love to share more of what has been happening in my life. I hope you stay tuned in So Gelleesh for more exciting things because, honestly, I’ve loved blogging more now than before. Although it may appear as though I do not blog every day, honestly, it’s what’s helping me with my blog writing. Like, every time I would go online in my laptop to write about something, I know it’s something worth sharing and personal to me.

September is going to end soon so, goodbye birth month. But it has been a pretty good month for me and I honestly cannot complain. Things haven’t been perfect, some things didn’t work out as planned, but, hey, that’s just how things are. They aren’t meant to go our way all the time, but rest assured, long as we hold on and fight back, we’re sure to get to where we want to be.

Till next post, beauties!

  4. An intriguing discussion is worth comment.

    I do believe that you should write more on this issue, it may not be a
    taboo matter but typically people don't speak about
    such issues. To the next! All the best!!
