I recently attended a wedding of office colleagues and being it an outdoor (rainy) afternoon wedding, I decided to wear a pant suit to the occasion. Here's my outfit of that day:
My look inspiration (minus the cleavage)
The white blazer was a great snatch from a store in 168 in Tutuban; it's on sale (P175) so I bought it. Saan ka pa? :) Replaced the black buttons with crystal ones (P40 for a set of 4) to give it a classy touch. What I like about it is the tuxedo cut that falls above my hipline and perfect for my petite size.
The black sequined top is from Landmark and the satin pair of pants from SM. Not in photo is a pair of So Fab strappy shoes.Except for the blazer, the rest of my outfit is not fairly new. I just bought them while on sale thinking that they're classic pieces and I'll have good use for them in time. I always believe in investing on classic pieces instead of spending so much on fad outfits.
Now for the myuk up, I went for the thick lash-red lips look. Bought a pair of false lashes from Landmark. Sa halagang P40.00 may makapal na pilik mata ka na that are easy to wash off :)
A few days before the wedding, I ran out of Etude House BB cream and decided to try out Face Shop's HD Perfect BB Cream. This is P995, a little more expensive than other BB Creams but its SPF30 feature convinced me to buy. It has anti-aging minerals and perfect for combination to oily skin, super plus plus. It's also very practical, a small dot can go a long way. This served as my foundation.
See how that blended well on my skin? Loove it!
For the eyes, I applied Maybelline's beige base and bronze highlight as I was going for the nude eyelids. I attached the false lashes and filled out the eyelids with liquid liner (to cover also the part where you placed the false lashes, for a 'cohesive' look). If you think the false lashes makes you look like a drag queen, feel free to trim it to a more natural length. I finished the eyes with 2 coats of Loreal Telescopic mascara.
My chinita eyes went round for a day with the false lashes and eye liner. Make sure to put just a little highlight at the bottom of the lid
For the blush, recently I got hooked with Fanny Serrano's makeup line. I started with his Light collection, the lip gloss that has 2 pin lights inside the handle, perfect for quick touch up inside the car. Then I moved on to buy the black liquid liner (P195) and blush (P3++). This is actually my second liquid liner pen (I think I overused the first one teehee!).
I found the blush a little more challenging to apply since it took me more time to blend compared to the regular coral blushes I use. Hint: if you're going for the red lips, make sure the blush is very minimal and the eyes look natural. One highlighted part of the face at a time or else...
I also applied NYC bronzer on the apple of the cheeks for depth and shimmer.For the lips, I used Maybelline's Windsor Rose and Lustrous Lilac, both from the Moisture Rich collection.
So there, I never thought writing a beauty entry can be this hard. I enjoyed it nevertheless and I hope I shared something useful for all of you.
