FOTD: GREEN WITH ENVY

FOTD: GREEN WITH ENVY

Hello everyone! My apologies for not being able to update my blogsite for a while. I've been so busy at work as well as some family commitments. Anyway, I hope you all have been doing great. I've been browsing through your sites as well and seen some new interesting posts on your pages. Get it going guys as I enjoy reading them :)

In the past few days, I have revisiting my greens and I've realised how much I've missed them. I thought I'd share them to you what I came up with. I intended to come up with green smokey eye but no luck... Maybe next time :)

Sorry about the quality of the photos. I'm still trying to figure out best ways of taking better quality photographs.

In this photos I used the following:
Face:

Eyes:
Moisturiser: Shiseido The Skincare Eye Moisture Recharge
Primer: Elizabeth Arden Eye-Fix Primer
Eye Shadow: Shu Uemura Pressed Eye Shadow (Me Yellow) all over the eyelids
Eye Shadow: Too Faced Eye Shadow Duo - Lucky on eye lids and lower lash lines
Eye Shadow: Too Faced Eye Shadow Duo - Charms on creases
Eye liner: Lancome Le Crayon Khol (Noir/01) on upper lash lines
Eye liner: Clarins Eyeline Pencil (Noir/01) on waterline
Mascara: Lancome Virtuose in Black
Cheeks:
MAC Powder Blush - Style (Frost) (A97)
Lips:
Moisturiser: Vaseline Pure Petroleum Jelly

That's me done!

I love greens but greens doesn't complement well on my yellow toned skin..you look great with it! definitely me turning 'green with envy' that you can pull it off! love it sis!

how's work? been keeping you super busy no?

Thank you sis Shen! I keep hoping that I'd be more minimalist with my make up regime but it seem impossible. I do have weird type of skin (combination) that I have to moisturise (in fact, I could moisturise for England ha ha ha!). I've done exactly what Jheng has advised me to do when taking photo but I think I've still got a lot of work to do to get better quality.

Sis Nikki! Thanks! Should that make me feel better? I'd like my photos to be as good as Jheng though. I don't mind being the second best ;).

I do have got yellow skin tone as well that's why I have to pile foundation, concealer and pressed powder up but sometimes, I over do it ha hah a! I'm sure green would look great on you too as you've got pale skin :)

Yep! Work! Pah! It's bloody hectic but then again, I have to earn for a living ha ha ha!

Great to hear from you again guys. I've missed you loads! Muah!

hahaha you're funny, actually both you and sis Jheng takes great looking pix!!! so i can't choose who's first or 2nd, basta importante sa akin, i can see the photos! heheh that's why I can't be a photographer! hahhaha

Gracie said...

Ha ha ha sis Nikki! I'll make your life easier... I'll be the second best and I'm just grateful that Jheng has been kind enough to share us her secrets :) Jheng takes fantastic photos... She makes it too obvious that she knows what she's doing
