FOTD: Charming–A daytime/work look

#sorrynotsorry about my messy hair. I don’t comb often. 😛

Around two weeks ago, I posted in our Instagram Stories an MOTD.

My kikay kit from the recent waterfalls and lake outing

My office had its annual outing a couple of weekends ago. I was in charge of our itinerary, so I planned visits to an underground cemetery, spring water falls, a man-made lake, and an organic farm. Details of the outing will be in my blog. Instead, let me show you the makeup I brought.

Back to pinks

It all started with the The Body Shop’s Dusty Rose Lip and Cheek Stain. There’s nothing like having natural-looking pink flushed cheeks to brighten my face and make me look more awake (especially during long hours at work!). Then when I was persuaded to stay for a night in Shangri-La Fort because it was already late when I got done with gym, I only had my mascara, powder, concealer, and Revlon ColorBurst Balm Stain Honey to use. My face looked flat and pale, but the Balm Stain really gave my face the ‘life’ it needed. My liking for pinks have rekindled. 🙂

Since my birth monththis month started, I switched up my makeup with more pinks–Mostly lippies that are great for either day or evening looks. I haven’t thoroughly checked my collection, but these are my picks so far:

Blush no. 4 reco – Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush in Pink Kiss

Hm, this might not be obvious based on my previous reviews & recos, but I do like pink blushes. 🙂 One blush I didn’t expect to like and even recommend is the Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush in Pink Kiss. But mine’s in the Dramatic Pastels Deluxe Eye and Cheek Palette, which was released years ago. 😛 I don’t use the blush anymore though because I’ve already hit pan.

Can this CoverGirl foundation last in this blasted heat? + MOTD

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in Medium Beige

I mentioned many, many times that my T-zone gets super oily and that the oiliness has gotten worse lately. It might be the weather, change of diet since I’m incorporating healthier choices, or skin care products though I use the same. As much as I liked the L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup foundation, at some point, it started to just settle on my face and I would unknowingly get some on my fingers. I found out when I left a streak of foundation on a work document. I can’t even touch my face out of fear that I might transfer on other important stuff. Good thing I almost emptied the bottle, so I had a valid excuse to buy. I searched for foundations recommended for oily skin and saw CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in an online list of ‘best foundations for oily skin.’

Sunday FOTD with messy brows

This makeup was done real quick. The eye makeup is quite messy and I haven’t groomed my brows because I’m letting them grow. Maybe I shouldn’t have posted this, but what the heck… I still look human and I like this look. 😀

Estee Lauder and Paul & Joe Liquid Concealers

I’ve only used two liquid foundations ever. Instead of separate posts, I’ll just make one long one.

Estee Lauder Smoothing Creme Concealer in Medium 03

Estee Lauder Smoothing Creme Concealer

This is my first liquid concealer (but not exactly that in the picture) and it was a gift from either my Mom or Grandma’s sister. I forgot from whom. Anyway, the first time I used it, I was an instant convert to liquid concealer. Coverage is great for the dark area and fine lines under my eyes. Longevity is 8 hours and more if the day is good. 😛 Its consistency is thick and it settles quite fast, so I need to apply quickly. Estée Lauder, as we all know, is a high-end and costly brand. I finish this concealer to the last drop. But for its worth, this tube can last for months on.
