FOTD: Purple Haze + Nude Lips


I just finished an excruciating study/cram session for Physiology and took the exam a few hours ago. Instead of moving onto the next subject to cram for, I decided to dolly up and play with as much makeup as possible - hence the HUGE list of products used hahaha. I should really get rid of some before I buy any more.

I really like the colour purple, so I decided to put on as much purple as possible on my eyes. I've also been playing around with nude lips recently for a different feel (I know, several seasons behind I always am) but here's the look I came up with.

Products used: (a tad of everything xD)
Eyes:
Anastasia Brow Wiz in Medium Ash (brows)
ELF Mineral Eye Primer
ELF eyeshadows duos:
1) Buttery matte all over lid
2) Silverish brown on lid below crease
3) Shimmery light purple on middle of lid
4) Dark purple for outer V and crease (I tried applying with ELF Studio Small Precision Brush - still don't know how to work the crease)
Hint of Wet N Wild Creme Eyeshadow Pencil in Pixie to highlight inner corner
ELF Sugar Kiss Mascara in Midnight - purple side
ELF Studio Creme Eyeliner in Black
ELF Eyeliner in Plum for wings

Lips:
Revlon Lipstick in Nude Attitude
ELF SPF15 Lipgloss in Goddess over it

Face:
ELF Studio Concealer Brush & Pencil in Light (spot concealer)
Covergirl Clean Makeup Oil Control Foundation in 555 Soft Honey (wet foundation)
ELF Studio Complexion Perfection (powder)
ELF Studio Cool Bronzer (contour)
ELF Studio Blush in Candid Coral (blush)
Contacts: GEO Nudy Brown





Hello Kitty Sweater Top from H&M

I really like this picture for some reason .. dreamy far-off look (the weird discolouring is from powder/blush sticking to concealer oops)


Featuring ELF Studio Complexion Brush (not quite sure how to use it but it doesn't pick up a lot of pigment - good for bronzing/blushing)

You can kind of see the crease in this one:

I look a lot older without bangs:

And when I take too long, my boyfriend gets very upset and turns into the RAWR Monster HAHAHAHA :D (Featuring Revlon Nude Attitude)

Tip: To get this nice nude look that every seems to fancy so much (especially in Asia) and avoid concealer'd to death, wear a very nude (nearly skin tone) lipstick and layer a pinkish/peachy lipgloss over it. It will bring in a tad of colour and add shine so you get that super moisturized pale lip look :D

PS: If you know how to do creases for Asian eyes, please share. Michelle Phan is too pro and goes bam bam bam it's done, creased, she's got crazy smokey eyes. What!? Halp :D

OMG Angie I know what you mean about the crease thing!!! And I can't follow a lot of the "gurus"... I usually try to watch more amateur makeup tutorials because they're easier to follow and a to relate to. But, I actually prefer makeup look without a crease.. I like the "panda" eyes lol... thick black liner, and shadow right above the liner in pretty much the same horizontal line as the liner.

Hehe I didn't know nude lips was from a couple years ago!! I guess we're both slow? hahaha. Oh well, even if it's and "old" trend, it's new to us!

I love all the color contacts you wear! So fun! I'm gonna order from Serenie soon.. it's just there's so many out there!! I need to research and find the one that has the most enlargening (is that a word O_o?) and dolly effect..

You and and your bf are too cute!!

AHH! That shirt is cute! Screw H&M for not making a store in Hawaii! I always see stuff i want from them. GRRR.
This makeup look is so cute! I love winged eyeliner. I don't think I could live without it.

I know what you mean! Every time I do a dramatic smokey eye... I looked like I got beat up. =[
Help me too! Hahaha!

Hey Angie ~ did u change your profile pic? I like it!

Thanks for the circle lens advice ~ that's really really helpful! I did notice some lens with the thick black circle.. I'll prob pick from those. And I'll look for 14mm... that seems safe :) I think I saw 15 somewhere??? Must be crazy huge!!
