20121125 Sunday FOTD!

|
I wanted to show a more preferential look this week; I'm no fan of heavy makeup personally, but it's fine for other people. As long as it doesn't look to outrageous I suppose.
What I used:
FACE
MAYBELLINE DREAM FRESH BB IN DEEP SHEER TINT
MINERAL VEIL BY BARE ESCENTUALS
MATTIFYING POWDER BY SEPHORA IN D50

EYES
FALSE LASHES FROM C-TECH
SMASHBOX FULL EXPOSURE MASCARA

LIPS
BENEFIT'S BENETINT, ROSY CHEEK AND LIP TINT

Surprisingly enough, I'm really not wearing any eye shadow; that's my eyelid's natural coloring! don't like it for when I want to wear certain colors becase it may distort their vivacity or tone them down, but I can always use primer or get surgery to fix it (not something I want to do, I just don't want my lids to be so dark). I learned somethings when I went in post to pick a picture for today: I am hereby banishing that bb cream to the back of my makeup basket. It's too dark. I noticed this initially when I'd put only the bb cream on and my face was two tones darker than my neck and well, I tried to fix it with the mineral veil but I just made it worse! Oh well, maybe I just use the lighter shade after all. I like using the benetint but I don't think I'll be able to use it all by time it expires; it's less than a half ounce and it really did turn out to be too much.

Next week I'm doing an FOTD featuring all of my recent e.l.f. buys; want to know the verdict on the cruelty-free cosmetic line? Tune in next Sunday!
