FOTD | Elsie Vintage, Sleek Makeup & Magnolia on Sunday

26 Jun 2014

On a normal day at work, I wear no makeup. On special days/days I wake up with makeup on my mind, I spend 20mins max on my makeup. On Sundays however, I can spend up to 45mins doing my makeup. Sundays are for our 'Sunday Best' so I decide how I want to look to complement whatever it is I am wearing on that particular sunday.

On this day, I was wearing a top I got from Elsie Vintage last year at a Shopping Event. This top has been sitting in my closet since last year and has never been worn. Why? I really have no idea. On this particular day, I was feeling breezy and bright and so decided to wear it. I wanted colour on my face but had no idea how it would look considering that I love neutrals and have those on most of the time. Seeing as I don't work with colour on myself most of the time, I decided to use the colours on the top as an inspiration.
And, this is how it turned out.

Sephora BB Cream in Dark
Blush Beauty Liquid Foundation
Maybelline Clear Smooth Powder
Sleek compact powder
Black Radiance Mosaic Bronzer

Zaron brow kit
Tara eye primer
Sleek Original iDivine Palette
Asta gel liner in Onyx
Maybelline Colossal Kajal

Magnolia Makeup Infinity palette

Hegai & Esther brushes
Gifty's Daughter
I really had fun with this look and it made me realise that 'just a little colour' every once in a while isn't such a bad idea.

Since Sunday is the one day of the week I am certain of wearing proper makeup, I am trying to make sure I get enough content on sunday for one proper FOTD post per week. Let's see how that goes.
