This post is going to be a little all over the place. My FOTD (‘face of the day‘), which products I used, how I store my makeup while staying in Holland and more. Oops! 😀 I’ve been extremely under the weather this past week. Just haven’t been feeling well: headaches, stomach aches, body aches, sore throat…I’ve had it all. This explains the lack of blog posts. Combine that with having to take care of a very active toddler… Yeah!
So on Saturday I was feeling a little better, but I still didn’t feel like going outside and doing stuff. So I put my hair up, threw on some makeup (makeup always makes me feel better!), found my coziest hoodie (it says ‘San Francisco’, got it where I lived there 4 years ago) and caught up on the latest season on Shameless in my brother’s room.
Anyone else who watches Shameless? I love it! Just when you think you’ve seen it all, it gets worse. And it’s funny too. It’s on Showtime, every Sunday. Great show!
Anyway, while binge-watching snapped a few pics for my Instagram, posted one and decided to posts the others here. Of course they don’t show my makeup all that great, but you get the idea.
Very natural, as you can see, but I still used a ton of products. Funny how that works! 😀
A Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light
B Exuviance CoverBlend Multi-Function Concealer (my shade is ‘Mahogany’)
C CoverGirl Bombshell Intensity Liner in ‘Pitch Black’
D Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation (great foundation for extremely oily skin like mine, my shade is ‘Soft Sable’)
E CoverGirl Bombshell Volume Mascara in ‘Very Black’ 212
F Make Up For Ever Wild & Chic Eye Shadow Palette (pictured below)
G Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in Brun Jungle (one of my mom’s lipsticks I’m ‘borrowing’ Lol!)
H Jordana 12 HR Made To Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil
I Mehron Touch Up Anti-shine (review coming soon)
J Essence Blush Up Powder Blush in ’10 Heat Wave’ (this is an ombre blush, review coming soon)
K Wet ‘n Wild Fergie Take on The Day Eye Shadow Primer
L Sleek Contour Kit in ‘Medium’ (pictured above, together with my blush)
And this is where I’ve been storing my makeup while staying with my parents. Didn’t feel like keeping everything in my makeup bag (hard to find things sometimes, especially when you’re in a rush!), so I was looking for an inexpensive and practical way to temporarily keep things.
I found these metal makeup tins at a discount store here in Holland called Big Bazar. They were super cheap (less than 2 euro each, I believe). I keep them in the bathroom and they’ve been working out pretty well!
If you’re looking for something cute to store some of your makeup/nail polish (and you’re in Holland), check these out. I myself bought two, cause of course one wouldn’t fit everything…
Thanks for reading! Have a great week.
