It was the first day of work this 2016. I honestly didn't want to go to work yet as I am still enjoying the long hours of sleep and the late night series watching, as well as playing beloved Playstation games on my laptop. But adult life is calling and I gotta do what needs to be done. Haha!
Anyway, I decided to keep it simple. Unlike most people, I always go for colorful, bold looks, so it's quite a different look if you see me going out with a very simple face. So here's my simply pretty look of the day:
I kept it simple by using light and natural colors. I also went with mostly mineral makeup because it feels lighter on skin. Most of the mineral makeup I used are from Ellana Mineral Cosmetics:
Dermalogica Skin Perfect Primer
Too Faced Better Than Sex MascaraKoji Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner in Deep Black
Holika Holika Wonder Drawing Brow Mascara
Quite a handful for a simple look, eh? Haha!
Here's a closeup of my eye.
I did not use the usual shimmery or metallic colors... just nude shades and a fierce eyeliner! ;)
The highlight of this look is probably how glowing my face looks whenever I use Ellana's concealer/foundation product. I have acne and dark pimple scars that I try to hide and this product gives that coverage, but still keeps my face looking natural! My shade before was Smile but my skin got lighter during the rainy season and I had to use a lighter shade, which is Radiant.
The contour and highlighter also did the trick for a more radiant finish. Just look at that glow on my cheek!
Excuse me for that crazy eye right there. Haha!
But yeah, sometimes it's fun to go peachy simple, but I'm not giving up all the lovely, sparkly colors just yet! I like creating different makeup looks everyday and this simple one is just one of them. ;)
What look do you usually wear to work?
