FOTD: plum dressing

          Contemplated naming this post.. "ignore my puffy face it's that time of the month" seriously tho' does anybody's face swell up like mine??? Argh, well besides puffy face issues I wanted to share with you the mess that i call my brows :) I had the decency to at least fill one in so it wouldn't scare anyone (ahh me sans make up)

         here's both of them filled with eyeshadow because it looks much softer & natural. I also use the MAC #208 to fill em in :) I get asked that a lottt. I always thought that filling in your eyebrows was a MUST when doing your make-up regimen because I always saw my mum do it. Now that i'm older I realized that my mom actually has no eyebrows!! She's been begging me for the last few years to take her to get them permanently done because she doesn't wanna get to the point where she's too frail to do them herself. I'm just such a procrastinator :( I know this amazing lady that does awesome permanent make up too. I have to schedule her an appointment ohhh and I can feature her on my blog !! (i love how I just babble)

          So for today's FOTD I really wanted to try the new foundation & makeup products I picked up especially the MAC shadow plum dressing. I'm really BIG on purples .. mattes & shimmers whatever I just love them. I have brown eyes so I have to make them POP.

Face products
Face Primer: Smashbox Photofinish oil-free
Foundation: MAC studio tech NC35
Concealer: MAC studio finish NW30
Powder: Prep+Prime “Transparent Finishing Powder”

Brow: MAC swiss chocolate
Brow Bone: MAC eyeshadow rice paper
Eye lid: MAC plum dressing
outer V: MAC graphology & smoked out with MAC trax
Eyeliner: Rimmel Kajal jet black
Waterline: Rimmel Kajal jet black
Mascara: Maybelline lash stilletto

Blush: NYX Peach
Bronzer: Rimmel sun light

Pencil: NYX Natural
Lipstick: MAC snob'

          I really loved the coverage of the studio tech. Although it was very challenging to put it on. I used the MAC #130 so since the brush is smaller it took a lot longer to cover all the surface area of my face but the application was flawless and not at all streaky. I also for the first time tried a pink lippie and I really liked it. Snob wasn't super intense pink so it's a good gateway pink for me. I was a little disappointed in Plum Dressing. I expected it to be a little more intense purple and less pink. The color pink around my eyes just makes me look tired. I dunno what do you guys think??? oh && i'm super obsessed with Rimmel Kajals they have great staying power even on the waterline :)
