FOTD: Bright Under Eyes and Doll Pink Lips.

This is the makeup look I wore today. Not so exciting is it? LOL. I mentioned in previous FOTD that I'm currently into simple makeup looks with light eye makeup and bold lips. It's not that I don't want to play with eye shadows anymore, I'm just really liking how my eyes look without too much makeup and I play more on the lips by choosing a bright and bold lipstick or gloss.

For this look, I did a soft contouring on the eyes using MAC blush in Gingerly. This blush is my current favorite. It's light enough to be a blush and dark enough at the same time to be used as a contour shade. I then brightened my under eyes with a light concealer (Physicians Fomula Strength Rx in Soft Yellow). This is a bit tricky to pull off.  You really must blend the concealer very well. I used a damp sponge to pat the concealer down until it blends onto the skin and slightly blend it down the cheekbones. I guess I should do a tutorial next time to show you how I do it. It makes my face look bright and awake. I defined my face by applying a bronzer (Milani Mosaic blush in Afterglow) under my cheekbones and the jaw line. I never skip this step. I like how it pops up my cheek bones and makes my face look slimmer.

-NYX Round Lipgloss in Doll Pink (review/swatch)

For my lips, I first applied Wet n Wild Mega Last lipstick in 901B Think Pink. It's a soft pale nude pink. I was able to pull off this shade a month ago. I've gotten a bit darker, so now it looks pasty on me. To make it work, I topped it with NYX Round lipgloss in Doll Pink, which is a bright fuchsia with purple undertone. It looks much better.

Wet n Wild Mega Last in Think Pink then topped with...

...NYX Round Lipgloss in Doll Pink

I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend!


  1. That lip combo is GORGEOUS on you! I used to have NYX Doll Pink lipgloss but then I stupidly sold it in a blog sale and I regret it now :(

  2. that's clever--using gingerly as a contour as well. and i am loving orgasm on you. very pretty look, although i'm jealous of your flawless skin lol. looks so luminous. =p

    btw how are you liking elf's lid primer?

  3. I think this is a natural , sweet look! Lovely!

  4. I love your lipstick choices. =) Very pretty.


  5. hmmm I want to try the NyX doll pink lip gloss.. soo pretty!

  6. Really cute lip colors. Think Pink plus Doll Pink remind me of MAC's Candy Yum Yum lipstick from the Quite Cute collection. The two shades of pink you put together would make a spot-on dupe for Candy Yum Yum. :D It's so pretty how you put together a simple eye look with bright, bold, and fun lip colors. :) As for the Gingerly blush, I like blush shades like that. Light enough for blush, yet dark enough for contouring. It makes a nice multi-purpose product. :)

  7. You look so pretty:) I like this look!
