I have a thing for corals. Pretty to look at, and goes well with my skin tone. Such warm shades complement my nonchalant exterior, you know, to balance my aura or something. Go figure.
Someone recommend me a good angle to photograph close-ups. Seriously, this finished look is entirely different from the reflection in the mirror. Plus, it is time-consuming to take one photo after another -thank god we are in the digital world- and my arms ache from holding the camera for too long.
I did a wash of SHISEIDO Luminizing Satin Eye Color in PK 319 which is of a light shimmery peach color over lids and bring up to the crease. This is to bring out the pinky-peach shade from CLARINS Neo Pastels Palette. Then I use the brown on the outer-corner and crease, and bring it down to my lower lash line. Finishing the look with CLARINS Wonder Volume Mascara and LANCOME eyeliner.
My SLEEK purchases came in today! The Pixel Pink blush was included for better presentation (lol)
I got sick during Chinese New Year and decided to browse through eBay. BAD IDEA! I had originally intended to purchase the Rose Gold blush but a rush of adrenalin kicked in and my brain was convinced to get more stuff so as to get a better shipping deal.
Here's the funny story: I meant to get the Original and Sunset palettes, but discovered my mistake a week later that I'd ordered the Storm palette instead of the latter. What a dork!
I had gone ahead with a full-on Coral FOTD using Rose Gold blush and CLARINS Rouge Hydra Nude in Nude Coral, but the rain ruined everything! To top it off, the drilling ruckus generated from the upgrading project taken place right above my apartment nearly drove me to Hades. I shall attempt this look another time, preferably on a good Sunny day.
