Hey bf! I think freckles are really cute. I want to make it look like I have freckles. What kind of products and brushes should I use? And how would I do it, like just put dots all over my face?

She describes the application process and uses the NYX Microbrow Pencil in Espresso and MAC Dipdown Fluidline on a Smith 210 brush to create the illusion of a freckled complexion 

FOTD: Pink + Brown Eyes

I haven’t worn eyeshadow for the looooongest time. I’ve been preoccupied with SO MANY things so lipstick and mascara are just more convenient and faster to put on. I had time and reason to do a quick eye for Paul & Joe’s Autumn 2011 Collection Launch and I decided to go for a soft, girly/romantic look. 

I bought this pink MAC eyeshadow called SUSHI FLOWER (how cute is that name??) from Hong Kong months ago but this is the first time I’ve actually worn it. Pink eye shadow is not easy to pull off, I tell you. There’s a really big chance it might end up looking so eighties (I personally think that was the worst era ever, in terms of fashion. If I could sum it up in one word, it would definitely be “baduy.”) or like you’re going for the sales girl look (sorry, no offense, really! But they should be aware! Avoid blues and pinks since they’re hard to pull off and go with greens and purples instead. They suit Filipina brown eyes more!) In short, I was determined to pull off the pink eye shadow look.

MAC Espresso and MAC Sushi Flower

I used a whole wash of MAC SUSHI FLOWER on the entire lid, MAC ESPRESSO (matte brown) on the crease, and a light sparkly pink from my mini 4U2 Empress Palette (BEST CHEAP FIND EVER, P150 for 4 pretty pretty colors! Highly pigmented too, and available in all Watson’s branches – not endorsing, kahit wish ko oo. haha.) on the inner corners of my eyes, a really thin line of black gel liner, and my usual 5 coats of Max Factor’s False Lash Effect mascara.

4U2 Empress Eyeshadow Palette

Clinique Superbalanced Makeup in 61 Ivory (F-N) on the entire face, and YSL Rouge Pur Couture in #6 Rose Bergamasque on my lips.

I am not going to ask if you think I’ve pulled it off. I’m afraid to find out. Haha! I’m just hoping you like it and that you have something new to try out on yourself. :)
