Makeup Playdate: Semi-Dramatic Look For Work

Hello hello there..

I would like to share with you the look that I wore yesterday. I have been really into using coloured eyeliner on my waterline recently. I find that it is one of the many ways that I can incorporate colour into my makeup looks while still making it work-appropriate.

So here's my FOTD:

For the eyes, I did a cat-eye using khaki colored liquid liner. Eventhough the line is dramatic, the softer shade of khaki (as compared to black) helps to tone it down and make it wearable. I used the same color on my lower lashline and lined my waterline with a blue coloured pencil eyeliner. I merely wore a shimmery champagne cream shadow on my lids to keep the rest of the eye super simple.

On my face, I used a cream to powder foundation faker by Benefit. Next, I concealed my dark circles and redness with a liquid concealer and set it with a powder foundation.

Before I used the powder however, I dabbed a cheek and lip tint on the apple of my cheeks and blend the color towards the hairline.Then I used a powder blush over my cheeks. Using a cream blush or tint then setting it with a powder blush re-inforces the colour and helps the blush to last longer.

Last but not least, for my lips I start my moisturising my lips with a lip balm. Nothing heavy, a light swipe would do. I put on a dusty pink lip color then dabbed a peachy-gold coloured gloss lightly to the middle of my bottom and upper lips. This highlights and gives depth to my lips, making it look full.
