1923 Face of the Day: Distracting Blue

14 Jun 2012

Ha, yes you all will see me looking a little bit less of myself. Actually with just foundation, powder and no smile. I actually had done all my contouring and highlighting in this picture though.

It was a saturday and I was a bit restless so I decided to do something i had never done before - play with makeup for no reason at all. Strange but I am constantly of the opinion that my face should breath every chance it gets especially due to the fact that my recent breakouts have not let up and so i can't go anywhere without makeup on *sigh*

So here is the look I played around with. I am not quite impressed with it. It goes to show that I am not yet able to successfully play with colour on myself especially when compared with the fact that I have no qualms about layering colour on others. 

I wanted to play around with some of the Zaron e/s that were a bit on the colourful side and which I would not be comfortable wearing to work (not that I can't though. Not just comfortable with).

I used Mary Kay 507 & 600 foundations, Sleek powders and the GW shimmer blush.

What do you all think? More work on my colour techniques right? I feel the same too
