So I ran back to my room and took more pictures.
Felt like I would be doing a great disservice to my blog if I don't document it.
I rarely wear my hair up because somehow I think I look funny with ponytails (especially from sideways). :P
If you have dark skin, don't worry to go for pale/light pink blushes. I used to think they wouldn't look right for my NC37 skin but if you choose the right shade, they can actually work! They pair well with smokey eye makeup and nude lips. I was wearing the lightest pink blush from my Coastal Scents 26 combo palette (see swatches here) and I love how it seemed to complete the whole look. Also, I think the blush sort of makes the super huge pores on the hollows of my cheeks disappear.
I got asked by my friend who just started using Everyday Minerals about skin undertones and I was like, "hmm... actually, just look at your pictures!"
Lol. What a stupid answer.
But seriously, I guess in the following pictures you can clearly see how I have olive undertones? I'm definitely not cool and I'm not THAT warm either. When I was still an avid user of EDM foundations, their warm shades never match me right; they're always too yellow for me. So I stared at my pictures and thought, "GEE, I'M AN OLIVE!"
And yep, Olive Medium is my perfect EDM foundation match. :D
I didn't have the time to take proper close up eye pictures but it was not at all a complicated look. It's funny how MAC Teal pigment shows up turquoise blue here.
What I used:
urban decay pore perfecting primer
every day minerals semi matte base
light pink blush from coastal scents 26 combo palette
ELF translucent mattifying powder (someone asked on my formspring about this, I think you should just skip it. I'm just using it up for finishing and touch-ups , I don't actually like this product!)
MAC Teal pigment
Coastal Scents 88 matte palette (some of the purples - dark on outer V, lighter purple on the crease, blended upwards)
Too Faced shadow in Heaven (highlight)
Stila smudge pot in black
Maybelline Volum' Express mascara
Elise fake lashes
Urban Decay 24/7 lip pencil in Ozone
MAC Prrr lipglass
How's your weekend coming up so far?
