FOTD: Chanel Eyes and NYX Lips

The other day, I got dolled up for no particular reason. I was at home the whole day and didn't really go anywhere, but still wanted to look pretty. I woke up early, took a shower, had a light breakfast, then did my makeup and hair, wore my favorite dress ever and cleaned and organized the house...What a day lol.

I did a neutral eye makeup using my Chanel eye shadow quad in Winter Nights $56. It's actually my very first eye shadow palette and I rediscovered how much I love it. It consist of 4 neutral shades: taupe (crease), light pink (lids) light peach (highligh) and black with gold specs (definer), and can be used to create day and night makeup.The shadows are soft and silky and the shimmers in it are so fine that it gives a nice sheen on the eyes , especially when the sun light hits it. So gorgeous!

This is not my photo. I got it from google. My quad is so old and beat up that I'm a bit embarrassed to post a photo O_o.

I applied a light pink eye liner on my water line to make my eyes look bigger.
I used Benefit Eye Bright $20. You can buy it here.

I used Milani Mineral blush in Mai Tai $6.49 for my cheeks. Buy it HERE. I've been reaching for this blush a lot lately. Its a gorgeous bright coral. For my lips, I used NYX round lipstick in Paris $1.99. Buy it HERE. It's a pale pink with purple undertone. I haven't used this lipstick much because I think it's too light for my skin tone, but I managed to make it work buy adding E.L.F. Minty lip gloss in Los Angeles $3.00, which is sheer fuschia. It tones down the paleness of the lipstick. Buy it HERE.

  1. I love this look!!! It's very flattering and soft. You've got the amazing quality of not get overdone with eye make up I love that.
    Sometimes I can't control myself and I end up using too much dark colors all over the lid hahahaha.
    I usually take a look at these Chanel palettes when I go to the high brand section at the mall. But don't have the guts to swatch the eyeshadows (I'm afraid they ask me for some money just for swatching LOL)
    Kisses becky, I loved the lips too.

  2. Soo pretty! Love your make up here! I love that you chose to pin your hair with that flower, it sends such a tropical vibe to your whole look, especially since you have such nice morena skin! - Mar
