FOTD: Blue-Eyed – Wearing Blue Eyeshadow for Day Wear, and How to

I hardly wear makeup to work. I only wear makeup when I’m practicing makeup techniques I learned, or for events. And recently, I’ve been practicing a lot :)) So my skin’s kinda breaking out, revolting, the excessive use of makeup that it is not used to. Please pardon my skin. It’s improved so much from my breakout months, actually, and only now has it acted up like this. :P

Anyhoo, I decided to play with blue eyeshadow, and try a look that great for day use. I’ve been doing smokey eyes a lot in my previous FOTDs/EOTDs, so I decided to try something refreshing. Scroll to the end of the post to bypass my GPOYs and get to the How-To of this look.

*When I told you this was a one-woman show and that I don’t have the privilege of having someone shoot my FOTD photos, I was serious :)) I probably should get a tripod and a few other accessories to help me with shooting. Maybe I can even shoot video tutorials :)

For the lips, I used NYX Diamond Sparkling Lipstick in Sparkling Rose. It’s a light, pretty shade of pink, and staying power is great as well. It has enough moisture to keep your puckers looking healthy and great. If there’s anything not to love about it, it’s the glitters that sometimes are too apparent. But if you love glitters, then you might love this lippie.

Now, for the newest segment of my FOTD/EOTD posts, please welcome, the Anatomy of the EOTD!

As usual, I used my favorite, unbranded palette, because it blends well with wet-technique. Don’t forget to line your eyes and pump mascara to your eyelashes for that gorgeous effect. For the eyeliner, I’m using Maybelline Hyper Sharp Liner, a pen-type, felt-tip eyeliner for that easy application. It doesn’t smudge, and it’s waterproof. The 0.5mm tip gives you the extra precision in doing your eyeliner just the way you want it. It’s a great eyeliner, and I would definitely repurchase. I can’t think of anything I don’t like about this eyeliner. For those new to liquid eyeliners, this might just be the best product for you to get to know liquid eyeliners better. It provides stability as compared to those brush-type liquid eyeliners (like my favorite in2it eyeliner), and would benefit those that have shaky, unsteady hands. Best of all, it’s priced at 399php. :)

So there you have it! Hope you’d try this look for yourself, and hope you’d let us know how you fared with yours :) -ED
