I will never be a makeup artist but I am just relieved that I did not look like a clown that night.
After more than an hour of experimenting with makeup:
What’s on me?
facial skin: Benefit The Porefessional, Benefit That Gal, Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW brightening makeup, Garnier Instant Fairness B.B. Eye Roll On, MAC NW30 concealer
Eyes: Benefit Brows A-go-go (quick review: Like! except Smokin’ Liner which smudges), Etude House Color My Brows in light brown (ok, so my hair and brow colors don’t match), Etude House Line Nuance Duo (not sure about the shade, something that’s shimmery goldish green), Revlon Colorstay Eyeshadow (I forgot the shade because I’ve been mixing so many colors so much), Touchbeauty Eyelash curler, Benefit They’re Real Mascara
Lips: Chanel lipstick rouge hydrabase in Fantastic Plum and Lip Venom
Legs: Sally Hansen Air Brush Legs. (Quick review: Look ma, no varicose veins!)
Hair: Richenna Bubble Hair Dye in Red Wine (Quick review: Yaiks! I thought I loved the dark red color at night. But at broad daylight and under the harsh office lights, my hair looks like it has been dusted with rust); sponge curlers that I bought online in Multiply.
Nails: Forgot the brand but the color is icy blue. By Posh Nails Salon
Earrings: Forever 21, which I got on sale. Aren’t they Art Deco-ish/Disco-ish?
Dress: jumper shorts which I also bought on sale at YRYS last year. It was only P250 and I have also worn it a couple of times before.
Bangle: a silvery thing from Divisoria.
Shoes: Nine West Aroundtown
Here’s me towering over everyone because of the shoes. Yeah!!!
Whew! So much effort to look like I didn’t put in so much effort! But oh, what fun to be a girl! I don’t think I can do this everyday though.
And yes, I am obsessing about Benefit cosmetics lately but you gotta admit, the brightening makeup does its magic! At least I don’t have to steal my mom’s makeup this time.
The theme of the party was Mystique Madness, whatever that’s supposed to be.
My face looks yucky oily here.
My beautiful teammates (thank you for not wearing peplum skirts!)
