GOOD FRIDAY FOTD: Are we suppose to wear make up on Good Friday?

I originally planned to take my little one to Nottingham Castle to visit uncle Robin (yes, the one in tights ;)) (Hahahaha! Sis Nikki!) but its started raining soon as we stepped out the door. (Grrr!). So I took my little one for a quick lunch at Pizza Hut (it was a nightmare waiting to get served... it was packed!) hoping that it would stop as we finished eating but it didn't. I looked at my little one's disappointed face and I asked him if he would want to do something else since it wasn't a good idea to take him to the castle when it was raining but he just pouted :(... So, I had to think of something else and remembered they're showing Monster vs Alien in town on 3D so I asked him if he would want to watch indeed and his face instantly brightened up... bless his little heart :) Anyway, we both enjoyed the film but I had to stop him from squeeling as he was a little too loud. It wasn't only him who reacted that way, I must admit... the other kids were doing it too :).

Anyway, as I never dare leave my house without make up on, I've decided to wear somthing neutral and as I was deciding which make up and colours to wear, I saw my Versace lipstick and lipgloss in my train case and wore them. Here was I came up with...

Can I just say that as I was putting my make up on, I sort of revived my 90s when brown lipstick was 'IN'. Anyone in the Philippines would probably remember it... not unless you were about 8 at that time hahahaha! I'm that old as you can see hahahaha!

Again, my photos came out to be on the pale side... Grrr! When do I get it right?

This FOTD will probably get slated and I might end up regretting that I posted this but... hey ho!

For my eyes, I wore Too Faced Eye Shadow Dou in George and Wheezie
On my cheeks, I wore Too Faced Dou-Sided Blush Compact in Creme Brulee (Both from my last year's make up collection)
On my lips, I wore Estee Lauder lipliner in Mocha Writer, Versace Senusal Glam Lipstick, topped with Versace Wet Cream Lipgloss

Cris said...

I like this look - it's the kind of make-up that can be worn on Good Friday, I think :).
I still haven't picked out my Easter look...I just know one thing though: No gold - I used gold the last 2 years and I'm getting bored of it :-P.
P.S. Adorable story about your son ^_^.

i agree with nikki, the 2nd to the last pic is gorgeous..
The overall look is simple but when you 'look down' or blink, it has that sophisticated twist on a simple look...

Love it!

ima try that tomorrow!

Hahaha, I LOLd on the title :) I was so afraid to even smile yesterday, Good Friday because I'm afraid thunder would strike at me :( Anyhoo, BEAUTIFUL!!! How I wish I knew how to blend like you do!

Your story about your little one is SOOO cute! Must be so cute, too, to hear kids squealing all at the same time. Hehe.

i think red suits you better. perhaps because i can't get over that sultry Bond-girl look when you wore the russian red (biased talaga!)

Gracie said...
