First FOTD of 2014: Eye of Newt & the Storm

LOL, what a dumb title. Happy 2014, friends! 🙂 Here’s the first full face of makeup I wore this year. Full-ish, I should say. Since one of my beauty resolutions is to do a modified Project Pan, I picked out the things I wanted to/had to use up before I could buy another (if I want to replace that shit in the first place).

FOTD - 1

Base: y.e.t. Cosmetics Fill It Up Primer, Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation (Cheers to Me… Champagne), Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder (Ethereal Light)

Cheeks: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush (Flush), MAC Mineralize Skinfinish (Lightscapage)

FOTD - Eyes

Eyes: OCC Crème Colour Concentrate (Newt), MAC Prolongwear Paint Pot (Stormy Pink), Inglot Eyeshadow (125R, middle shade), MAC Eye Kohl (Prunella), Le Métier de Beauté Eye Brightening and Setting Powder (Refresh) to set shadows.

I should note that Newt creased on my left eye, though I didn’t wear primer.

FOTD - 2

Eyebrows: Inglot Brow Powder (569)

Lips: MAC Lustre Lipstick (Jubilee)

And that’s it! I’m trying to be more adventurous, too… In case you couldn’t tell. Hee! What are you looking forward to this year?


  1. oh wow those shadows are gorgeous! I will have to check out your project pan, I am doing one as well! Just took some photos. There was so much I wanted to add to it, hopefully after I cross a few things off my list I can go back and add more. I have SO MUCH stuff. It’s fun to get to using some of the things you have. Looking lovely like always! I just learned of our Laala connection by the way 🙂 Thanks for the kind words about my blog!

    • Aw, good luck with your PP! It’s so encouraging AND discouraging at the same time, isn’t it? And yes, Laala. 🙂

  2. I loooooooooove the eye makeup. It’s nice to see you moving away from neutral eyes, and those shades suit you so well.

  3. Ganda, Carina. Semi-neutral with a pop of color! Love the blending, too. And grabe, and flawlezz mo. Mapapa-Aesop na rin ako wishing ma-achieve yan! I like the soft highlight of Ethereal Light, too.

  4. I like that from the wide angle shot it looks like you just have some neutral shadow work with a splash of purple, but up close it’s a whole different story! Awesome eye look!

  5. Great look. I always look for fun yet office appropriate looks and this one definitely fits what I’m looking for. P.S. I’m on a strict budget for 2014, so I’ll probably be using up a lot of products this year too. Getting myself ready for shop my stash posts.

    • Thank you, Mariko! 🙂 I think this is my calling for wearing non-neutral eyeshadows—just do wearable looks!
