Beauty Binge: Makeup of the Week

I don't do FOTDs or EOTDs, but I thought I'd pick one look from the week that I liked and list down the products I used in Makeup of the Week.

My favourite look this week was from one of my all-time favourite palettes - MAC Novel Twist Warm Eyes. I used to have this in my makeup bag at all times. This palette has 5 wearable colours, and I had such a fun time coming up with different looks with this! Plus, it's a MAC, so I don't need to tell you how wonderful these shadows are. This week, I used all 5 colours, and I have worn this look countless of times to shows and events. On lazy days, I'd probably just use 2 or 3 colours, and I'd still look polished. This is one versatile palette, and it's still one of my go-to palettes.

MAC NovelTwist Warm Eyes:
Vanilla. Unwind. Folie. Adlib. Club.

I heart MAC. It's such a dependable brand!

This week I also played with some new items from my haul, and my new Everyday Minerals haul. L.O.V.E !!

Primer/Powder: Bare Minerals Mineral Veil before and after.
Concealer: ELF Tone Correcting Concealer in Light; EDM Abbot's Perk Me Up concealer to set.
Foundation: MAC Fix+(not in picture) sprayed on brush; EDM Pressed Foundation in Buttered Tan.

Bronzer: jane Oil-free Bronzer in Sunkissed lightly on temples, cheeks, nose, chin.
Blush: EDM Pressed Blush in Waffle Cone to contour; EDM Blush in Snuggle
(ver-ry pretty!).

Primer: POP Eye Magnet Primer (sample).
Eyes: MAC NovelTwist Warm Eyes - Vanilla (1st from left) highlight; Unwind (2nd from left) inner half lid, Adlib (2nd from right) outer half lid, Folie (middle) middle of crease, Club ( 1st from right) outer-v. Blend! Blend! Blend! MAC Kohl in Phone Number to line outer 3rd of lower lash line and tightline; Revlon ColorStay liquid eyeliner in Blackest Black to line upper lash line.
Mascara: Maybelline Great Lash in Blackest Black
Brows: Wet n' Wild Kohl Brow-Eyeliner in Taupe (awesome stuff!).

Lips: Rimmel Rich Moisture Lipstick in 279 Smooch; Palladio Plump n' Shine lipgloss in Creamy Pink.

My skin's still acting up as I am in the midst of changing moisturisers. *sigh* I look like a freakin' teenager! I hope my skin will calm down soon. Having pimples at this age is soooooooo not on!!

Thanks for dropping by, and have a great weekend!

Awww... will we see a pic of your FOTD soon? Please?? :D

Is the big mac bottle in the last picture the Fix+? How'dya find it? :D I've been wanting to try it out for the longest time ever, but never seem to remember to (too caught up with the latest collections! haha!)! :P said...

Hi Jenn, FOTD, not so soon lah. So many other talented folks with better FOTDs/EOTDs. Love MAC Fix+! It's indispensable when I am using my minerals. I even use it with my StudioFix Powder. Get it lah. It's worth adding to your *huge* MAC collection!! ;)

Jenn said...

My MAC collection is not huge at all lah!! hehehe!! :P

Well, actually i don't know if i should get this one or the charged water, since both works the same! i'm leaning towards the latter though! :P Have you tried that one before? :D said...

Nope, have never tried Charged Water, but wonder if there's a subtle difference? That'll be interesting. Either way, they're both good to have, makes your makeup feel/look lighter, less cakey and powdery.

I just discovered your blog, all the way in Australia.

I am in love with Rimmel Moisture lipstick in Smooch.
I have been searching for a dupe.

Have you found any similar yet? said...

Hey Anne! Thanks so much for dropping by!! I like Smooch too but it's so hard to find! I found this on eBay and I was under the impression it's been d/c. Can you still find this lippie in Oz? If yes, I need to put that on my list the next time I go back to Sydney. I haven't found anything close to Smooch ...sigh. It is a gorgeous lipstick tho'.
