FOTD: Red and Gold

 Hey beauties!

I know I just recently posted an FOTD but I just can't wait to try out this look I found by fellow blogger, Chriselle. I saw this makeup tutorial she did entitled, Red and Gold Makeup Tutorial Video and I watched it and was inspired to try out the look!

What I liked about the makeup look Chrissy did is that she used strong colors both in the eyeshadow and the lips but still managed to make it look wearable and not too over-the-top (I wore the look while I went to school to get endorsed for my thesis defense... haha!).
Here's what I looked like earlier:

 Pretty? :P
Anyway, here's her video on how to do the look:
I really like how Chriselle did her video tutorial. The phasing was just right -- not too slow (I usually forward the video when I watch some makeup tutorials... Sometimes it gets so draggy kasi.) and not too fast that I had to pause it just to read the entire captions. She showed how she applied and blended the makeup and also the brushes and products she used.

*So Chriselle, TWO THUMBS UP to you! I honestly love what you did in this vid! Keep it up! :)

 So here are more pictures of yours truly sporting the look, Red and Gold.

 Forgive me for the picture heavy post. I had fun taking pictures of myself earlier. I really thought I looked so pretty! HAHAHA. Vain much?
Anyway, I made the pictures small so hopefully you can forgive my vain-ness. :))

 Lot's of ♥LOVE♥ for this look!
 Thank you so much, Chrissy, for sharing it! ♥

  2. Aww Thanks you! I really love this shade. People kept asking what lippie I'm wearing whenever I use it. Do try it out! But since it is very matte, i suggest you use a really good matte lip balm first. :P
